jog their fashion consciousness

I just went to The Fashion Spot forums for the first time in about 6 months. What the hell happened?!?! People are posting up items from Victoria's Secret in the trendspotting section. VICTORIA'S SECRET. You know, that place where you can buy shitty ass bras and $2.99 panties with huge pockets of fabric in the ass. Were you aware that they sold clothes? ME NEITHER.

TFS used to be a place where the fashion snobbery could be snide and elitist, mocking the general public's affinity for mall stores like Abercrombie & Fitch, American Eagle, and VICTORIA'S SECRET. Now that's what people are wearing in the "What Are You Wearing Today" thread. I just threw up my dinner on the keyboard. I need to clean it off.

  6. Looove the dress, those sleeves are stunning. And the pairing with the waistcoat looks fantastic. Is it odd that I've never been on The Fashion Spot? Eurgh, and I hate A&F, I was rather upset when they opened a store on Savile Row...quick way to ruin the name behind the heart of British tailoring! And the purple velvet sounds pretty fantastic actually, I've been looking for a Willy Wonka blazer for ages. Oh and I seriously need to get my butt down to a proper hat shop in Mayfair soon and get one tailor made.

  9. Hah I've never gotten into TFS (don't even have an account) but I always thought it was a hangout for people that actually knew better. SOoner or later we'll have idiots yelling 'FIRST!' on post replies. how'd you manage to score such a cool dress from ebay?? I have this ebay un-luck for certain items..I never had luck with actual CLOTHES. Maybe shoes and the like. (Answer: yes and no, outdoor pics are taken by my friend, then cropped&edited by myself, but indoor pics (like the ones at home) are done with self-timer/remote.)

  11. That's so sad - that even TFS is succumbing to recession-wear.

    Your dress and hat are so fab!! Can you believe this insane weather?!

  12. I actually don't think there's anything wrong with VS. They seem to be stepping their game up lately... it just depends on what kind of girl wears it.
