Affordable luxury

Before Karl Lagerfeld and H&M there was Isaac Mizrahi and Target. All these high-end & low-end collaborations make it seem like fashion designers are doing the masses a favour when instead they are secretly having a laugh at the frugal folks' expense.

This gift-giving set comes in a colour which, no matter how they insist should be called plum glaze, can only be described as Royal Grimace. But what was Isaac thinking when he designed matching gloves that reached all the way to the forearm? Falconry is a sport for the nobility, not for the commoners. By giving this McDonaldland's castoff to somebody at Christmas, you can rest assured that it will continue to be passed on and like some kind of venereal disease, become the gift that keeps on giving.

A giraffe can clean its own eyes and ears with its 21 inch tongue. Yes, it can probably make many women with that tongue but it is essentially one of most unstylish things seen on a safari (apart from the safari suit). Giraffe print is not wildly sexy like the spots & stripes of pouncy jungle cats, nor is it wantonly cheeky like the stripes of a zebra. It just says, look at me, God designed my coat during his "reticulated and brown" phase, but please be my friend anyway.

Its wide generous legs are designed so that, in the spirit of generosity, you can share them with several of your budget-conscious friends at the same time. What exactly is so super about the super jeans? There is no way such clunky jeans are going to allow one to leap tall buildings in a single bound. You'd trip and fall, possibly suffer a concussion and it would be super embarrassing for all concerned.

Isaac Mizrahi aside, don't be put off by Target because it still remains a haven for affordable shopping and best of all, you can find virtually anything there. Really. No, seriously.

On an unrelated note, I saw Karl Lagerfeld leaving a posh bar last winter here in NY with an entourage, and he got into a minivan parked on the street and drove away. I'm 100% sure it was the new, skinny Karl. It was very weird. And hilarious!

What a brush with fame! Since he lost all that weight, there did all the loose skin go, I wonder.

Do you think it would be too much to combine the super-leg jeans with the giraffe top? I mean, would they clash?

Next up from Isaac: Skorts!

Unzipped was quite entertaining though.

Just like Viagra , generic Viagra online also does not provide protection from any sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV. These generic Generic Cialis medicines come in tablets of 25mg, 50mg, and 100mg.
