WAAANT!: Embroidered Comic Book Headbands for tha Laydeez

Because comics are getting to your head anyway (you see what I did there!), today’s WAAANT! is courtesy of Janine Basil and her ridiculously awesome Comic Embroidered Headbands for only $23 bucks a “Pop!” (or $125 for those fancy rhinestone fascinators).

From “Bam!” to “Zap!” – dudes, these make super unique holiday gifts that will certainly result in at least ten full minutes of sweet, sweet superhero-themed lovin’. Check out my faves:

Fashunz: Spring ’08 Brings Crack Couture Back from the 80’s

In an effort to keep abreast of the latest fashion trends (that I cannot afford and, if anything, hit up H&M for rip-off versions), I occasionally check out what Vogue has to say about updating my closet. I’m always endlessly amused at some of the cited “trends,” and this time, the fashion royalty has really outdone themselves.

This facet of the Spring 2008 Style Trends collection is one my faves: looks like they hopped in the Delorean, jetted to the 80’s, and invaded a tranny hooker’s boudoir. I like bondage and cross-dressing just as much as the next middle-class Jewish gal, but wear these get-ups to a party? Yes, please!

And let’s be honest; I would totally rock that Maison Martin Margiela sequin jacket with the shoulder pads to like, a polo match or Kokie’s or something. Thoughts??
