Alexander McQueen, You are a Genius

Yeah, yeah, I know this is supposed to be a jewelry blog. And I know I've already done a non-jewelry post today. But I just saw this dress in the Neiman Marcus catalog that came to work and I think I stopped breathing for a minute or two. Can this be my fish feet?



Alexander McQueen Silk Dress, $3480


Attn Neiman Marcus (or Alexander McQueen, but I hate to bug you while you're out there creating masterpieces): If you send me this dress, I solemnly swear to look hot in it.

ROTFLMAO. It's worth obsessing about. When I do my next obsession list, I might have to include it! I really do love McQueen.

You guys should see the print version. The color is so vivid, you get the impression you could maybe touch it through the paper.

I am in lust with this dress. I think I should have a torrid affair with it (why do people have say "torrid affair"? Does anyone ever have a desultory affair? An unsexy affair? Torrid would seem to be implied in th word "affair.")

Wendy, breaking out the big words before noon!
I always thought that people might have boring affairs. Or pathetic affairs. But those might still be torrid in their own way. Or maybe torrid better desrcibes an outsider's perspective of an affair?
Anyhow, I want to marry this dress! No "wham, bam, thank you dress" for me!

WendyB said...

Good point...there probably are some pathetic affairs. But let's pretend they're all torrid. I showed this dress to my husband and he REALLY liked it.

In Yr Fshn said...

Maybe he'll buy it for you?
Paul, I don't know you, but I think Wendy really deserves this dress. She writes a wonderful blog!
You both have great taste, btw!

i got the whole fish feet thing before i even clicked on the Wendy Link...see i know my bloggers!!!

As for the dress, the structure, the color the everything is gorgeous!!

WendyB said...

Imagine the dress...WITH fish feet. Okay, erase that image from your mind. Even I am traumatized by that!

In Yr Fshn said...

Wendy! I DID imagine it! And I was going to comment! It's absurd and disturbing, but the reds would definitely match.

Shaz: I'm with you... it's the crazy little community!
