File this one under Awesome Things We Accidentally Came Upon But Will Not Forget Unless A Violent Case of Amnesia Plagues Us.
There are exactly one items in that cabinet but I digress.
While combing through some fashion blogs yesterday, I came upon Style Nanda by way of Karla’s Closet (and one particular white shirt dress, highlighting three large sized, linear blue stars embroidered into the shoulder). As fate would have it, there was a link that would redirect me to the international part e-comm hub, part personal style blog where I would find myself lost in an abyss of moderately priced, highly trendy, compelling-to-stare-at clothing, accessories (umbrellas included) and shoes.
Yes, in the wise form of the late Stefon (see: SNL): this website has everything. Tie dye, white socks, shoes that look like dying grasshoppers.
And I don’t know what’s better – the fact that globalization is winning at bringing to the United States some of the vastly interesting and fairly well-priced goods that up until this point seemed indigenous to Asia (and this teeny-tiny nondescript Nolita shop on Prince and Elizabeth), or that we know precisely how these items will look on care of the subsequent personal style images that animate the items for sale. (We’ll take the liberty of adding a few inches to the circumference of our thighs.)
Chronicled above you’ll find some of our favorite looks from the site, highlighting specifically that blue oxford blouse equipped with baby toucans loving in tandem (slide 1) and some slouching, skinny-ish blue jeans that seemingly feature the most perfect knee holes (slide 7). I’d say the website’s forte is in its ability to source white cotton and blue denim which, you know, is perfect for someone not unlike myself who loves white cotton and blue denim.
The downside? Once you’ve made up your mind about the offerings which reflect a better you (thus meaning you must own them, duh), you’ve essentially set that shit in stone. Shipping costs $20 and as far as I can tell, once the clothes are yours, they’re yours forever.
It’s actually not unlike what Rihanna describes as the process in which good girls go bad if you think really hard about it. This in turn really makes me wonder if this grammatically laughable dress is a testament to the ancient RiRi song. We sure hope so.
