    Here’s your creep-tacular for the week.  Goes with this week’s makeup theme and actually, apparently I am somewhat obsessessed with red eyeshadow.  No idea where this was published.

  This is such a ridiculously perfect collection it hurts my eyes.  Just a little bit.  Technically superb, cohesive, a variety of pieces for men AND women, prints, metallics, fit to perfection, with structure, asymmetry AND draping.  Have to say though, between collections I’d like to see a wider variety of necklines from His Highness GP.  I mean lord knows I love an asymmetric breasted jacket more than your average bear, but I know there’s […]
