Droopy Celine Luggage totes

I’ve seen one too many pictures of celebs and their saggy luggage totes that I’ve come to the conclusion that time definitely affects us all. Droopy luggage totes were never a problem for me because my favourite Celine bag has always been the Phantom (that droopy tongue… those Dobby ears…) so the slouchier the better, but I’ve recently succumbed and bought a Mini luggage tote of my own. The first day I bought it I frantically googled, “Do Celine luggage totes sag over time??” (yeah don’t judge), and to my horror I discovered this thread on PurseForum.com, where I found the following pictures:

                                             Yes, yes I do sag.

 P1040273

                       Perhaps “melt” might be a more appropriate word.

Yeah, I actually found all this quite funny. Horrifying, yes, but definitely funny too. Apparently this sagging can happen even if you leave your luggage tote in a cupboard and don’t use it – imagine not touching your precious Celine for 6 months, finally taking it out of its dustbag again aaaaaand it’s turned to goo. Mad depressing, but funny no? I think I would burst into hysterical laughter, then cry. Definitely cry.

You can bet I’ll be monitoring my luggage tote over the next year! If it really starts sagging something horrific I’ll be sure to post pictures for  you guys to see. I got it in Oct’12 and it’s grown some tiny wrinkles (just like my face…) but nothing major. To anyone with a luggage tote/trapeze/phantom (the main saggy culprits) of your own, have you experienced this with your bag? Let me know!

Forever 21 Leopard Lace Up Wedges

After writing about the pretty pink pair of Forever 21 heels below, I thought it’d be interesting to show you guys the other side of the same brand – there are shoes a brand creates that I love, and some which are truly hideous and make me question my undying love for a particular designer. Likewise, as nice as the Forever 21 heels I showed you earlier are, these:

 

 

are very much uglier. These are like Cinderella’s 4th stepsister who was so ugly she didn’t even make it into the book for fear that children everywhere would run away crying.

 

don’t look much nicer from the top either, hmm?

 

I’m guessing there must be some leopard print fanatics out there who saw this shoe and thought, OMG WANT! though I’m clearly not one of them. If you want this shoe though, you can buy it for $27.80 here. Just… don’t let me see you wearing it.

Lady Gaga Grammys Fashion 2011

I’m sure this is just a precursor to whatever she’ll be wearing later, but I’ve just seen a picture of what Lady Gaga wore to the Grammys red carpet, and…

 

 

 

She’s an egg, folks. Or rather, she’s in a womb, complete with all that nasty-looking fluid inside. I guess this might be some sort of publicity stunt for her new song, Born This Way, but then again with Lady Gaga who knows?? Maybe she’ll even hatch out of it at her performance later.

Forever 21 Cheetah Wedge Ankle Boots

HAHAHAHAHAHA YUCKKKKK!!

 

Don’t get me wrong, I love that Forever 21 produces loads of fairly nice-looking, cheap shoes, and I occasionally buy a pair or two myself. But this shoe? Back to the drawing board, whoever designed this…
