My order from Neiman Marcus came in, and the verdict is "meh..."
Super Skinny Pants: The fabric feels totally cheap, and the fit is quite loose...it's definitely not "super skinny". These are going straight to return.
Bardot pants: They fit great and the cut is good. They are a lot like leggings and are cut slim at the thigh so that they're not loose. However, I'm concerned about the material...it's definitely the kind of material that will pill after a few wears.
Both pants feel and look like pants you can find at Contempo Casuals, only they are better cut. It's for this that I say they are overpriced for what they are.
oh that is too funny you cracked me up with your 'contempo casuals' statement that reminds me of clueless.
i agree on the quality it is really really not worth these prices.
Mary Kate and Ashley sneak us a peek of their new Fall '08 clothes.
It's no secret that Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen have coveted style, so maybe their decision to become clothing designers isn't so far-fetched.
After launching their luxe line The Row (which included a memorable $200 t-shirt, but also some incredible cocktail dresses), the former NYLON cover girls created a diffusion line of younger, more affordable pieces called Elizabeth + James - the same names as their younger siblings.
For Fall, the line has the distinctive vibe of "trust fund babe goes to a rock concert" - there are Princess coats that happen to be cut in electric pink wool, flannel plaid skirts sliced so short they could be an ice dancing costume, and a variety of slouchy collars and hoods to help you hide from the paparazzi.
In short, everyone will want to wear it, and you can see it here first - unless MK + A have started sporting samples in their tabloid photos, and then, well, we tried.
