E-Z Style



Fashion people can be real snobs about pieces that come pre-styled—because, like, only amatuers need to take shortcuts—but I say to hell with that. Not only do pre-styled pieces take the guesswork out of creating a cool layered look, but they eliminate any unwanted bulk you might accumulate along the way. I popped in to Comptoir de Cottoniers* today and saw this little number, which demonstrates my point perfectly.

Likewise: I could never make this happen so—literally—seamlessly in a million years.


This is actually a dress, and rather short. But also too cute not to share.


*Comptoir doesn’t yet have American e-commerce—boo!—but they make it pretty easy to order from their British and French sites, so don’t let that deter you.

      Oh, thank you for sharing that! Layer, people, but be careful. Be careful.

      Damn funny.

      Sigh. I still read Lucky too even though I realize I’m too old and also it’s not as good as it used to be. Or maybe I’m really just too old.

    I like this brand! They also carry it at Bloomingdales stores too, which is where I first saw it.

      Bloomingdale’s is the best place to buy it because like all french brands, nothing is returnable (nothing on sale anyway).
