Hello my fellow bargain gatherers (I'm a passive soul), and welcome to a little show I lovingly refer to as "Now if you'll excuse me I've got to get down to Mott Street and buy that item." I plan on watching each episode with an eye on my Googling finger so I can procure a few of these duds myself, hence I'll use this recaps as a place to highlight the fashion porn (aside: the folks on this show have delightfully filthy mouths when it comes to speaking sartorially -- I love that). Let us begin.
"J. Lo is the S--t Right Now"
It's true. Her American Idol, husband-tossing ways align perfectly to the time to get top dollar for a dress she wore to an awards show, and what a dress it was.
Not only does this dress have the cache of having been worn on the 6 train at the Latin Grammys, it's also a Thierry Mugler -- who has a few other pop stars connection. He's dressed Rihanna on multiple occasions and Lady Gaga has scored his fashion shows (one song was the basis of "Scheiße," one of my favorite non-sensical songs of all time). Basically, that's a lot of cache for a dress. Granted the gown itself isn't my most favorite, however, Ambria looked pretty fly in it, and if I had the $6K, I'd probably twirl in it to. Then I could sing the song that gave this blog its title (by CSS) and drink champange. (In this scenrio, I'm rich enough to not have a job.)
