Ok, SO it’s approximately 4:30pm EST and, as I sit here eating half a cinnabun from last week (I really need to go shopping), I’m feeling pretty high-spirited, because I’m quite sure I have some really solid evidence that those supposed Blake Lively nakey photos leaked to the internets were not real. And I’m basing my entire argument upon one specific dress choice…
Take a look at that photo for a moment. I’m happy to wait. In fact, here’s another four of them, for a better front and back understanding of what I’m angling at:
Ok, have you soaked it up? Ok, here we go: her decision to wear what is essentially a see-thru ornate curtain sourced from my friend’s grandma’s windo- I mean, Chanel’s 2009 Couture collection, reveals, among other fun round things, the truth. Because here’s the thing: typically, when a sweet lil gal gets mixed up in a nakey photos and/or sex tape scandal, there’s a path she takes right out of the gate following the incident. Because, you see, the number one rule of “nakey photos released of me” club is ‘don’t wear anything that makes me look nakey.’ Now, as you can see, clearly, this is nowhere near Blake’s current concern. It’s not even in the same state as her concern. Her concern lies squarely in the state of ‘pretty dress? GIMME!” and not at all “I’d hate to do this, but I should probably have my bits lie low for a while – SOB.” This, friendlies, is enough evidence in my estimation to disprove any claims to the contrary. Therefore, case closed. Blakey ain’t nakey. Also, I’m completely over it and want to talk more about dresses instead of Blake’s lovely lady lumps.
Now, while I like where it looks like this dress was going, at a point when it wasn’t quite ‘there’ yet but was on its way there… my problem is that I don’t think I fully like where this dress ended up, which is in More-is-Mores-ville. It looks like the short white frock part of the dress is where it should STOP, but that at the last minute, the designer was told they didn’t have the right ratio of long vs. short dresses for the runway show THAT EVENING, and so a bright little bulb who had taken off lunch to visit grandma and got the company-wide text had the ‘good sense’ to rip some curtains on his way back to work… and this dress happened. At least that’s how I envision it. Because the back of this dress gives me a bubble butt feeling, when I don’t think I’d have that feeling had the story been over at the base of the floral gathering. Thoughts? Maybe I’m way off on this. You can slap me in the face, retort-style.
Addendum: I just thought of this – it kind of looks like she accidentally snagged the shorter skirt 73 times and that these photos are taken at the end of that day. Hence, the gown-like effect. … no? Should’ve left that one inside the noggin’? Yeah you’re probably right.
In other news, I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS LITTLE DIDDY:
She may look high as a kite, but that doesn’t mean she lacks in style. In fact, it might be helping her… because this white striped frock with pronounced shoulders and the perfect amount of subtle ruffle detailing, again, from Chanel Spring 2009 Haute Couture collection, especially with the sorta kinda matching square toed platform Lolo 69 pumps by Christian Louboutin (because I mean, who else) is just overall KILLING IT for me in a good way. I would like to procreate with the look and have super fashionable Chanelbabies who escape my womb having already perfected their runway walks during gestation. ← Does writing things like this mean I’m clinically insane? Lemme know, OK THANKS.
Here’s a pic I took of Bambino with my brand spankin’ new iphone which by the way has been occupying my every free moment. Honey says he’s lost me. It’s funny; I’ve never been much of a tech geek, but I’m SERIOUSLY DIGGING MY IPHONE Y’ALL.
I’m SO RELIEVED that he still fits in my lap. This has been a serious concern for me. True story.
On a final note, that floor-length frock looks like it would be the perfect double duty dress for a wedding and/or tear away ensemble for an impromptu dance number. AMIRITE?
Aaaaaactually… since we’re on the topic of recycling looks from seasons long passed, I’m going to take this opportunity to show you some picks from Chanel’s 2009 collection that were especially ideal, imo:
And finally… let’s have a little fun, shall we?
WHO WORE IT BETTER:
So, do you guys like her look? On another much more relevant note, would you consider these getups wedding-appropriate?
