Beyonce for Back to School

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

From the designer that brought you this:


Comes a line of junior wear inspired by this:


God help us.

Actually, Beyonce’s tour wardrobe was designed by Thierry Mugler, but the House of Dereon (read: Beyonce’s Mom) is bringing to stores a line of back to school clothes, shoes, and accessories that is “inspired” by hm. Which I guess is a nice way of saying that they are ripping him off?




I see nothing I would want my teen daughter to wear to school. The only school it would be appropriate for is one devoted to teaching depressed hookers. Ok, ok, they aren’t that bad. They actually kind of bore me. But the overall look, especially the shoes, seems to serve more of a club-going sensibility than that of advanced trig.

However, Beyonce is a talented woman and is looked up to by many teens. The price points for the collection are just right, ranging from $25 to $75. Let’s just hope teens can mix pieces from the collection with more, ah, school-appropriate wear. And hopefully ditch the shoes altogether.

But, don’t be surprised to see the depressed hooker look at a high school near you this fall.

You Are Milk Chocolate

A total dreamer, you spend most of your time with your head in the clouds.

You often think of the future, and you are always working toward your ideal life.

Also nostalgic, you rarely forget a meaningful moment… even those from long ago.

It’s been a rough, moist, muggy, overheated, overworked, sunburnt month around casa raincoaster, and when mine eyes lighted upon the following, as delightful to a grownup as a tea party is to a child, I knew that the BlogGod had granted my wishes and handed me A Really Easy Post.

Because who doesn’t luv them some chocolate, eh? Even Lord Vader melts a bit, under the right circumstances. Check it out:

You are cordially invited to my chocolate party. Join me… or die. – http://bit.ly/1399jC

And look, just like everyone else in this hypermediagenic age, Lord Vader has party pix on Flickr:

Darth Vader invites you to his festival of dark delights

Comment from Ekid:

Your lack of white chocolate is… disturbing.
