The worst jeans in the world.

Okay, so I've started to enjoy Twitter, mainly for the fashion sites and blogs who regularly update with me with exclusive sales and the like. I found a series of interesting posts from Ideeli.

Like, the worst jeans in the world.

I can't decide which ones are more unforgivable.

These, apparently, are big in Japan... the "Bikini Jean." Now, I don't know who in the world would ever want to wear these and be taken seriously. They are beyond trash. Like WAY beyond. They are by a Japanese company called Sanna, which makes another pair of unfortunate jeans they've deemed as "the lowest in the world." See below...

I mean, how could you even fucking sit down in these? Do these people actually think that ass-cleavage is sexy? Because I can assure you that it isn't. Whoever designed these jeans is either on crack or a dude, either one of them with about as much class as a drunken beer-bellied redneck or a stripper. If you've never heard of having to get a bikini wax simply to wear jeans, well... now you have.

Oh but wait, it gets worse. Good lord does it ever get worse.

The "Winking Jeans." By some "artist" names William Jones. They are supposed to wink at you when you walk, but in order for them to work you need to have some "junk in the trunk." However, if you are going to cater to those women that possess such "junk" shouldn't you make a more flattering jean? And who the fuck wants eyes painted on their ass? I sure as hell don't. And apparently, Jones hasn't stopped with the eyes. Oh no, he has even made jeans with ducks painted on and they are supposed to give the illusion of opening and closing their beaks and quacking...(?!)

If you'd like to read more, you can click here. But I would suggest otherwise.

Good GOD.

Unfortunately, I don't think any NIN photo can save this post. Even if it consists of special guest Peter Murphy (of Bauhaus) hanging upside down, during a performance of "Reptile". I think that may be one of my favorite songs =)

Elizabeth & James Fall 2009 Campaign

Currently loving the fall campaign for Elizabeth and James. So upon scrolling through I shift-apple-4'd my favorite images and made a collage. I can hear the agitation and dismay in my old design teachers now; "No no no! Activate the whitespace!!!!!!!!!!1" Why do you think I switched from graphic design to fashion?

I hate the way blogger resizes images, but I don't feel like fucking with HTML and messing up my entire layout. So clicking to open a different window to see the whole thing is the way to go.

Robin & JMJ- see the dynamic? You can almost feel the energy in this photo. I still think the line-up for the LITS and Wave Goodbye tours were the best. (Again, clicky to see full-size photo).

Three Things

1. I really must have this bag.

I mean, it screams everything Emily- the color, the studs, the way it is a perfect combination of slouch and structure. Perhaps a gift for my 22nd birthday, which happens to be in little over a month. Oh motherrr....

2. And not that you guys really care, but I'm pretty stoked: September 7th I'm seeing Apoptygma Berzerk and October 3rd I'm seeing Placebo!

Yay for great bands!

3. Another NIN photo- yes, I'm aware it's another Robin photo, but I really like the photography. Rob Sheridan really knows how to take a photo. He rocks my socks, even though I hardly ever wear socks.

You and I, we may look the same

But we are very far apart.
There's bullet holes where my compassion used to be
And there is violence in my heart.

For some reason I am really enjoying perforated details in shoes and boots right now. Urban Outfitters has flats, boots and oxfords by Deena and Ozzy I believe, and they are really cute. So while perusing net-a-porter I came across these bad boys, and immediately decided that I needed to have them STAT or ASAP or whathaveyou.

Obviously the perforations, which I just mentioned, but also the silver color is amazing. It's just shiny enough without looking cheap or cheesy, and I love the silver capped toe. The model photo shows them pair with an all-grey ensemble and bare legs, but I'd wear these with black tights and a blazer. I think they would be surprisingly versatile and very wearable.

Also, I would like to add, August is NIN Month here at Deranged. Basically because it's their last tour ever *sobs* and I cannot go because alas, I am broke once again and have next to nothing saved for the school year. So every post is going to end with a NIN-related photo. This one happens to be the background on my Macbook Pro (the photo looks much better full scale, so I would suggest you click on it).

Robin Finck = amazingly hot and crazy talented!
