Wearable Wednesday Aquilano.Rimondi

The playboy bunny executive fast track was not how Jill pictured it.


Mmm- now we have gone 1 textile too far for me. But I’ll take the matching wing chairs, please.


One minute I like it, the next minute I hate it. It’s like my haircut from 8th grade.


Betty- where are my beanie babies?!


That collar- does it serve an orthopaedic function? I’m all about this fabric and the swing tunic- but the collar is baffling me and strangling her.


Well, it would make an excellent scratching post.


How can you look so soulless in  such a fabulous coat?


Yes, please. Even if her ruffly knee garters are goofy.


Well, who can complain about an outfit with pockets!


She looks like a pool table and Phyllis Diller mated…in a rock tumbler.

  1. There it is – Wearable Wednesday. This is now one of the highlights of my week. I do like that swing tunic and the skirt ….. but not the collar. I always say that I am a big supporter of pockets. Now I will laugh when I say that.


  2. Wing chairs, orthopedic collars
    and sullen models, what a lovely runway show! I did like the floral jacket, and the dress out of the same material. The sad and frightening thing is that there are women somewhere on the globe that will wear some of these outfits because they believe they are stylish. Ok, rant over! You are a wonderful writer, and the time and effort you put into these posts are impressive.
    I look forward to your blog posts, especially Wearable Wednesday.

    I do like that coat with the roses and the dress too. But look again, I think that’s her bloomers peaking out at the hem 🙂
    Fun as always 🙂 Thanks for the Wednesday smile!


  4. First, I luuuuuuuurve the saturated colours in this! Anything with those shades of brown will always get me considering it, whether it’s hideous or gorgeous. That green of the rock tumbler outfit – WOW. And I’d so wear that crazy quilt fur coat….


  5. What a mess. I don’t even like the fabrics this time except for the floral in the coat and the dress in the next picture. And that Beanie Baby coat? I would have begged my mother to buy that for me when I was 7 and, you know, a little tiny part of me is still 7.


  6. Love the fabrics especially the burnout velvet and the lady like skirt lengths. It’s nice to see little frills peeking out from under the hem of the skirt…reminds me of the 50’s and 60’s when we all wore lace edged slips under our clothes and school uniforms.The tunic would have been worn for maternity wear but it is more modern looking now. The scratching post dress minus the vest might be interesting and very comfortable in that ruched material. Not as bad as folks think.


  7. Mmm, so much drab. It’s like camo for the 1970’s housewife.

    Actually, these colors were popular a few years back, and it’s what prompted me to pick up sewing again. Otherwise someone might mistake me for a zombie…and there’s far too much zombiepocalypse preparedness around here for my comfort. 😉


  8. I don’t know why the models always look so glum. New rule. All models have to be able to smile. And probably howl with laughter at some of the things they have to wear. Oh, maybe that’s why they are told not to smile.


  9. Quite the crap shoot on this one, some great fabrics, some nice cuts, some editing could have helped and models that had eaten in the last few months, but some of those “skirts” look like poodle skirts without the poodle….


Something lovely to share?
