Wearable Wednesday Alessandra Rich

Posted on


The one Axl Rose left at the altar:

But she’s not bitter.

ale2

Patty just loved to subtly remind people that she had dated an LA Ram.

ale4

Sigh. Even her urchin-epalettes can’t make this fun.

ale5

The only outfit ever rejected for Jungle January:
ale7

Excuse me, Ma’am – I think your thing is hanging out- oh, never mind…..

ale8

Ok, I’ve lost count- how many ill-advised things is she wearing right now?

ale9

I’m about over the edge here. I can’t even think anymore. These last two are up to you- I have a pageant fabric induced migraine. ale10

If I squint, it looks like her torso has a giant mouth throwing up lace curtains! Try it!

    It looks like someone went into the back room of a bridal gown factory and raided the trash can for scraps….she is trying to be a haughty model but comes off as “little girl lost” in search of a good meal and a hairbrush. The consistent feature throughout are white striped panti-hose and white boots…the rest just wayward parts looking for a home. Thank you for bringing sea urchins to our attention…who knew!

      The boots hurt my heart. I think the model is trying to engage her inner Liv Tyler- not for the faint of heart!

    HAHAHAHA! The second to last one looks like a Valentine’s Day date gone wrong. Lace is pretty, but I am not sure that it should ever be pants …

      Lace pants- imagine the chaffing- if you dare!!!

      Are they pants? It’s so weird! Like an optical illusion…look at the hem…WTF is going on there?

        They just kept stapling window dressings to her as she ran by!

        True, they may not be pants… The optical illusions caused by lacy curtains and things are making my brain hurt!!

        Still quite scratchy- thats no illusion!

    Perhaps I’m not feeling well. Or I need another cup of tea. I like a couple of these. The next to the last one is my favorite; it’s so pretty. If I lost 30 pounds I would totally wear that. If I had anywhere to wear it. Where does one wear such a thing? Oh. Now I see the problem.

      Well, if you own a cat, walk within 3 feet of cactus, and so many other common things- you will look like Miss Havisham pretty soon!

    My little redneck heart usually goes all aflutter when I see lace, but this didn’t do it for me. I liked the concept of the first two dresses, but the overskirt must go!

      prttynpnk responded:
      March 26, 2014 at 1:25 pm

      The overskirt, the underskirt, the lace panties, the valances- just too too!

    I agree with every word that you have said.

    Haa haa haa! Let’s just pin a lot of random shit on this model. We’re totally punking those haute couture fans. Muhaaa haaa! Oh and honey, look a little grouchier.

      She had to leave a hot oil treatment early-

    Lace and pageant horror fabrics aside…is anyone driven to distraction by that narrow leather belt? I mean, what the heck? Was this the only item left on the Sears accessory wall or something? Such a strange pairing with all the other crazy,overwrought fabrics. I hear Tim Gunn saying ‘Edit’!

    Another case of ‘Who gave this person funding’?!!!!

      Its hard to design on a moving target- maybe she was positioned on a conveyour belt during fittings

    redsilvia said:

    I hope the rest of the collection is a tad more, um, pretty! I actually just g**gled the designer and there are some beautiful dresses from past collections on image search, these sadly are not among them. I’m a bit concerned about the model, shall we call social services to do a welfare check?

      prttynpnk responded:
      March 26, 2014 at 4:56 pm

      A bad collection? Perhaps we will look into her again in a few seasons- for balance!

        redsilvia said:
        March 26, 2014 at 4:58 pm

        Bad collection, or a head wound?

      My dogs love to chew fabric- it works on so many levels!

    sewbusylizzy said:

    Do you think they just dipped her in glue and she rolled around in fabric & trim scraps?

      prttynpnk responded:
      March 26, 2014 at 8:26 pm

      She just needs a macaroni necklace to complete the look!

        sewbusylizzy said:

        And a crocheted vest…

        Oh yes!!!

      Alesandra did all the work for us!

    Oh my word! Was there a fabric shortage when she designed these things? It looks like a bunch of half finished clothes. I even like lace but this is too badly done.

      prttynpnk responded:
      March 27, 2014 at 10:33 pm

      These are some cruel curtains!

    These could be good – if only there were a little restraint! Your comments had me cracking up, as usual!

      prttynpnk responded:
      March 28, 2014 at 4:03 pm

      It definitely lacks restraint!!!

    I can see where the designer was heading. It’s supposed to be bridal/ironic or even prom/ironic but it just doesn’t get there.
    Thank you for the laugh out loud comments.

    I totally squinted at the last one – HA!

    Saving grace = silver tipped white leather heeled boots. Smashing with everything, even grandma’s curtains! LOL

      You can smash everything with them!
