New frock at Canimal fills Kitty with gay ‘Abaddon’


Puntastic huh? Canimal has some scrummy yummy glorious dress happiness in store, and let’s face it you can never have enough nice frocks, especially little black ones:)
This one is called ‘Abaddon’ and it’s L$200. It’s also rather snazzy, looks great dressed up or down and works equally well with boots or heels…I like it very much, it certainly ain’t a ‘bad ‘un’…ahem, sorry. (Yes I do look a tad startled in the picture don’t I? It’s the shock of a fashion-fabulous Monday morning. Oh ok, it isn’t, it’s my piles again…)Incidentally, check this picture out of Canimal modelling this frock…she’s gone for an Amy Winehouse feel to the photo shoot and boy does she look like a right strumpet!!! Fantastic work Canimal:) I should also mention whilst I’m wittering on about Canimal that she’s also produced some shoes, and rather excited she is about it too. Rightly so, they’re wonderful. She’s described them as ‘Trashy-glamorous’ and I couldn’t agree more..the ‘Shock Value Stilettos’ like the freebies from Ivey below, feature a skull and bow design and are super-lovely. What with the free shoes from Ivey today and these new shoes at Canimal it seems that we’re heading towards slutty shoe heaven! So, here are your instructions for shopping happiness today… Go to Snatch, get free shoes. Peruse wares at Snatch, and buy lots. Go to Canimal. Buy shoes. Look around Canimal, decide you like the Abaddon frock. Buy that too.
Virtual wallet will of course be empty, but just think of the warm fuzzy glow you’ll have inside:)

In Memoriam: Yves Saint Laurent

Fashionistas all over the grid should don their best black pantsuit, turtleneck or blazer today and wear it in loving remembrance of Yves Saint Laurent who has died at the age of 71. Without his influence, the fashion that we love so much in the real world, and of course on the grid, would be completely different; for it was Yves who created some of the most iconic fashion statements which have since become everyday garb for a lot of us. Don’t believe me? Well, it was Yves who introduced us to such essential items Yves Saint Laurent was the first designer to produce ready-to-wear collections, and was behind the ‘Beat Look’ which has recently regained popularity in the mainstream (although true aficionados know that such classic style never goes away).

Despite his personal insecurities he was a fashion leader, not a follower, and was the first designer to feature a black model in one of his shows. This seems so commonplace to us now that it’s hard to imagine a world where such a move world be considered controversial!

Wikipedia has more on his fashion and features links to websites where you can see some of his most beautiful creations. RIP Yves, your sense of style will never be forgotten.
