Need a page-turner and love fashion faux-pas? Here’s a website to get your teeth into and give yourself a giggle: TheFashionPolice.net

Fashion Police dot Net-3 What caught me was one of TheFashionPolice.net’s old postings on Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld giving ankle bags a trial run on the catwalks, which apparently had a moment on Chanel’s SS08 show:
I know I’d be no more likely to strap a tiny handbag to my ankle than I’d be to buy a pair of shants

The post was brief, yet to the point and got me clicking on more articles.  I suppose also, they were quick to pick up a detailed point and chose some good photography.  I liked the website because they’ve got linkage throughout the articles and site.

For example, what on earth are shants?  *Click*

Sheer trousers through which other people can view your beautiful lingerie, for those of you who didn’t click.

So, FashionPolice.Net say they are
a light-hearted look at the good, bad and downright ugly side of fashion, by people who love it, but don’t take it too seriously.

Some of my instant favourites out of their listed categories, include:

  • Ugly Prom Dresses
  • Dress of the Day <— made me slurp
  • Fashion Fraud Squad
    (e.g. “Designer vs High Street: Victoria Beckham vs Closet”; and
    ”Spot the Difference: Betsey Johnson vs Bakers”) <—these articles are a bit of a winner for me ^_^
  • Wanted!
    (e.g. “Shoe Porn: Miss KG ‘Minnie’ shoes in red suede and black polka dot” <—delish!;
    ”Wanted! Retro-style swimsuits at Target” <—so needed;
    “Shoe Porn: Rupert Sanderson 140mm patent tri-coloured open toe pumps <—by  heck!; and
    ”Shoe Porn: Zara black pointed toe court shoes” <—*gulp*)
  • Columns & Opinions
    (e.g. “Thylane Loubry Blondeau: is a 10 year old too young to model adult fashion?”;
    ”In Praise of Jeggings. No, really.”;
    ”The Right Way to Wear Leggings”; and
    ”Politics and fashion don’t mix – how Samantha Cameron ruined my favourite dress”) <—omg, giggles
  • Style on Trial <—only read if you have a strong stomach, any style on trial requires strength of digestion and a resilient mind, otherwise you could get sore eyes and a belly ache.
  • Save or Splurge <—great for aiding your financial decisions, perhaps even a great substitute for a bank manager –_<

A definite on my rounds of sporadic perusals.
