Summer ’11 Must-Have: The “Floaty” Camisole

free_people_royal_Blue_floaty_Cami_blueflys_Blog_Flypaper.jpg
This Free People royal blue stripe jersey floaty cami is the answer and lifeline for those of us with slim shoulders, but perhaps not so small bustlines or tummies. On the flip side it works just as well for those with ample curves in the booty and the hips when worn with leggings, skinnies, etc. as it provides some ‘relief’ from too much ‘junk in the trunk’ syndrome.
LOL.

Name the Designer: Which T-Shirt is Alexander McQueen?

Alexander_McQueen_Fluxus_Vintage_Havana_graphic_t-shirts_Bluefly.jpg
This past weekend, I finally went to the Alexander McQueen tribute exhibit at the Met and — after a one and a half hour wait on a line that wove through a room of Persian artifacts, then a corridor lined with French portraits and Rodin sculptures — I finally got into the first of 11 dimly lit rooms, piped with gothic instrumentals. The committee that put the tribute together did an excellent job of using McQueen’s work, words, and collaborations to give viewers a peak into the mind of the designer who ultimately committed suicide last February. The theme of the “Savage Beauty” show was Lee McQueen’s romantic preoccupation with the things people consider ugly or fearful — including death; hence, the skull motif that pervades many of his pieces alongside the ultra-femme layers of floating fabric. So when I was browsing Bluefly’s graphic t-shirt collection, each of these shirts reminded me of the designer’s haunted genius. Can you tell which one is McQueen?
