The Accessory of the Season
Well according to Prada I think it maybe your vagina.
Go take a look.
It does look like they are wearing satin bodysuits, but still
there is no one too rich, thin or young who should wear a
"dress" (and I use the term very loosely) in public unless she gets
paid for sexual favors.

thin waifs that graced a number of the runways this Fashion Week reminded
me of a thought that flittered through my mind while looking through
the latest issue of Vogue;
"the models all look like little girls playing dress up?"
Why do they use children to sell clothes to adult women?
Sure I would like to look 30 again, but I am not gnashing
my teeth because I no longer look 15 or 16.
Nor do I want to look like a Meth addict which most of
those poor children do.
Someone please feed the models.....

Well I finally got that vintage Lilli Ann coat back
from the dry cleaners.
Turned out very nice.
As I set down to list I began to measure.
It has almost a 50 bust!
So ladies I have listed a plus size vintage Lilli Ann mohair
coat. The color is a pretty salmon pink.
Go check it out over at Damn Good Vintage,
my store on
Mainstreet Vintage Online Mall.
On My Watch List
This great purse has been on my watch list for a bit now.
It is in amishtaxi's ebay store; affaire d'amour vintage.
I am sad to say that cash has been tight here at Goddess Central so I just get to look and sigh.
You, dear reader, may do more then window shop.
It is just a wonderful straw purse with a lucite handle

Big Hair and Fanny Packs
According to New York Magazine three is a trend and 2 of the "new" trends at Fashion Week are big hair and fanny packs.
Just like New Yorkers to think Big Hair and Fanny Packs ever went "out".
Here in my part of the South any chi-chi luncheon is full of these scary skinny wives of rich men with their skelator bodies and huge bobble heads.
The look to the left, in particular, is quite familiar.
Add a great big bow in back and it would look like any number of dress wearing, homeschooling, fundi gals I see everyday.
And though the fanny packs shown are cute, they are still fanny packs.
That is a look that will, once again, be abused by the same large size women who decided it was ok to wear hip hugger jeans with belly baring shirts to WalMart.
Think of the children folks.
Thank God the Go Fug Yourself gals are also in New York this week discussing the antics of Paris, Demi and the like.
On a bright note I love the Spring 2007 collection from Tuleh which is
very 40's vintage looking, wonderful prints, lady-like without being boring.
You know Hepburn would have worn a dress like this:
If the "vintage look" is what you crave why not wear real
vintage like this dress from The Vintage Peacock on Mainstreet Vintage?
While you are there don't forget to check out the snazzy goods at
Damn Good Vintage.

On My Watch List
Normally I am watching vintage clothes or pattern lots on eBay.
Not right now.
All I want is this book from mybestbooks:
The FUNDAMENTALS OF APPAREL DESIGN by Pepin Harmony.
How could I not?
Look at the pictures. Tons and tons of lovely, snazzy, chic 1940's clothing!
I am drooling and seriously thinking about NOT paying a bill so I can have THIS BOOK!
Go take a look, the seller has done a fantastic job with the listing including a large
amount of pictures and chapter information. You might also want to check out the sellers
other items. She has a nice number of vintage fashion books listed this week.
I have never felt this way about a book before, well except for the new hardback reissues of
Sandman that Neil Gaiman will have out soon.
I would kill for one of those.
Here a a couple more illustrations from the book.

Yummy Vintage Vogue Patterns.
I try not to be a snob, but I do have a real preference for Vogue Couturier Design
Patterns over any others.
You can have a dress that seems chic, but nothing special until you look at the details.
Each of the designs below have great stand-up collars, very new look and nice skirts.
But the details of each skirt! The first has a nice flare skirt with deep forward pleats
at each of the side seams. The second looks like a slim, wiggle skirt with bucket pockets.
The surprise is this back flare from deep pleats on each side of a wide back panel.
Each of these patterns are available right now at auction on eBay from The Zaftig Goddess.

Speaking of Evil Overlords....
Just in case you have never read it I will now direct your attention to the Evil Overlords List, gentle reader. It begins:
"Being an Evil Overlord seems to be a good career choice. It pays well, there are all sorts of perks and you can set your own hours. However every Evil Overlord I've read about in books or seen in movies invariably gets overthrown and destroyed in the end. I've noticed that no matter whether they are barbarian lords, deranged wizards, mad scientists or alien invaders, they always seem to make the same basic mistakes every single time. With that in mind, allow me to present...
The Top 100 Things I'd Do
If I Ever Became An Evil Overlord"
Since I plan to take over the world someday this list is essential to my world domination.
And in case you enjoy Harry Potter and fanfiction I give you Big Name Death Eaters.
It makes me squeel with glee.
Just need to spout off about a few thing:
-The Emmy's sucked except for this which has raised the lurv I feel for both
Jon and Steven to new and obsessive heights.
I thought even Manilow was thinking WTF? when he won.
-According to Rummy I seem to be a "new kind of" fascist.
According to Webster's Bush and company are.
"political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition 2: a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control".
I don't know how I can stand the "big lie" for 2 more years.
