Trend de la Creme is a Coutorture Network Partner and our resident comparison contributor--her ability to match runway images and natural phenomena is truly remarkable. This week marks her first foray into the Spring 2009 collections and it's an intense start for sure. Erin Fetherston (before she moved onto a more structured silhouette) showed a Spring 2009 collection with a number of billowing frocks. Trend de la Creme noticed a comparison immediately--between those frocks and the mushroom clouds produced by nuclear bombs. Probably not what Fetherston had in mind but there's no denying the resemblance.
Our bloggers never cease to amaze with their ability to ferret out the unusual, take for example Trend De La Creme who has managed to discover a beauty product is disturbing it is almost cool. In her feature Just Nosing Around she found this shower gel dispenser. Trust us there is more where that came from.

We'll just come right out and say it--it's been one long day and with the blustering, grey weather we'd much rather be reading than, well, writing. To that end, there's no better time for our last post of the day where we roundup links from our Network Partners. Fashion Binge posted on the Fred Flare store opening in Greenpoint and the goodies she covets from the store. Did someone say magic pyramid sweater? We're in. Any One Girl also got us inspired to wear fun cottonthings, today it was the Pegleg women's collection that did it for us. Trend de la Creme commented on the stylings of a certain Moscow Fashion Week show--let's just say we couldn't agree more. And, finally, giving us a dose of actual, tangible, you know, information, The Scented Salamander posted on the new perfume for men called Lyric by Amouage.
Our level of burnout is reaching toxic levels and we don't leave for Miami for another week for our much needed vacation, thankfully we have an enormous dose of must reads today just because we need a little pick me up like that.
Trend De La Creme continues to prove her impressive ingenuity by rounding up jewelry that she calls wearable destinations.
