    I like the idea of being obvious with black. Or maybe these ladies' RO boxers? On sale...hmmm

    ^ the only thing i'd be concerned about is the seams, especially if the dress was rather body hugging. otherwise, i'd say go for it

    I like AA's stretch micro mesh body suit for under jersey dresses- if you have a medium-small chest you can even go bra-less. It magically keeps everything up and in place.

    i am diving deep into muted plaids, small checks and optical prints.
    footwear, pointy toe chelsea boots.

    ^oh I really love that Limi top, one of the best things in the collection, imo. I am also feeling really drawn to graphic prints and plaids, which Givenchy and Undercover have just reinforced for me.

    I also see a Dries scarf, but what's that first thing you got?

    Also, have you seen any of the Dries sheer plaid button-ups around?

    i know that limi top is just so good... its killing me.
    i am digging the chalayan iridescent's, reminds me of a paper show i went to years ago.
    and i guess pinstripes will be abundantly represented next season with all the menswear themes, but i think rei's knotted waistcoats are my favorite.

    dries is flying off the shelves this season, for good reason. i wanted badly to wait for sales but was fearful that most of what i desired wouldnt make it so i bit the bullet. even with an obvious lack of restraint , i think chose wisely; adding a plaid-backed/metallic-front shift, brown floral-front/burgundy plaid-back trousers (worn twice already, love these to death) and the small b/w checked sheer scarf to the dries section of the closet. he is my weak spot when it comes to paying retail. so all in all, 3 very different prints that represent what appealed to me most in the collection.

    i tried a bunch of sheer plaid button up blouses on with you in mind and besides having a stiff, even slightly rough texture (silk but ever so slightly scratchy) they ran huge, so be cautioned if your tempted and find one online (which i can steer you towards) the sizing is wonky. i noticed that quite a few have been returned so i would say your best bet is to swing by IF and see what they stocked, fyi, the black/red/ivory combo is stunning as is the softer coral/lavender. remember the spaghetti strap day dress you tried last spring, i've seen that in a lovely flowy silk version that is so you!

    Well, the dream of owning one of these coats is dead! over US$7,500... ouch!

    Don't know if this is the right thread, but does anyone know if I can actually buy one of the Rick runway habits/headscarves like the one Michele is often pictured wearing? Are they available to buy?

    some do it fast, some do it better in smaller amounts.

    He produced them for the one collection that was about nuns. Not sure he's done them since.

    Simply put, try eBay. Unless you're chummy with any nuns, that is.

    Thanks guys. Yeah I've been searching on eBay but no luck, as yet. I even considered trying to DIY one but I think it's quite iconic and it would just feel wrong, especially when wearing other genuine Rick gear.

    As far as shows go, that was probably my favorite from him.

    He kept it so simple. No distractions, which I respect.





    Lovely nuns in fog what's not to like?

    Nope. It's all there. Oh, Fisch for the Hip has closed. They were supposed to reopen, but not sure if that happened. Google.

    Any experiences with By Walid? Is this worth considering? Looks awesome IMO. http://www.ln-cc.com/invt/byw02140010blk#content

    Hi guys! I need help, a piece of advice specifically! I've just got back from London shopping and I was pretty much obsessed with a few items by Bvlgari in Harrods. Could you please suggest some cheaper alternatives, maybe online stores, where Bvlgari is more affordable. Thank you beforehand!

    Looking back at this collection restores my love for Rick. Still searching for a big Exploder hood to keep me safe in Winter.

    I think they've been rereleased for SS14, I swear I've seen them somewhere recently... Also, would definitely monitor yoox, have certainly spotted one or two on there in the last couple of years.

    Actually, just noticing this isn't the exact same piece... but similar

    different fabrication; the strutter habits are bias cut with some clever seamwork that would be pretty difficult to diy without any understanding of how bias performs.

    the vicious one you posted looks like a retreading of the crust habits, which are just shaped with a dart running from the flat butt to the apex of the head.

    i didn't take a good look at the vicious habits from the runway performance yet, but the moody habits are a third style entirely.
