“What were they thinking?” Wednesday: Designer Edition…because even Dior makes mistakes.

Before we get started with today's post,  I would like to announce the winner of "Giveaway Monday"!  

The winner is... 

Kate AKA "Baboo &am; Mogwai"

Kate, please email me at with your mailing address so I can get you your fab studs and People Style Watch subscription!
xo, Erin
PS. I hope you get your new pair of flats. I have my eye on a taupe pair of Tory's (who doesn't love a good Reva??) and a rose gold pair of Yosi Samra foldable flats for fall.

Now, back to today's regularly scheduled post...

While there isn’t a human being on the planet (myself included) that hasn’t rocked a fashion fail or two, we have come to hold designers to a certain standard.  Sometimes forgetting that these awful, terrible, atrocious, no good ideas we witness on the street must have come from somewhere, and the majority of the time it has trickled straight down from the top. 

This Wednesday, let’s celebrate (or at least get a good chuckle out of) all the abominable designs that are spawning fashion faux pas everywhere.    

Disclaimer: The following pictures may display the repercussions of designers gone rogue, which may not be suitable for children (or anyone with any ounce of style.)

Ah, Christian Dior.  According to these shoes, the classic, world renowned designer is getting in to the fertility business??  No, seriously.  What is going on here?  These shoes would be hideous even without the odd pregnant lady heel.  

I never thought Karl Lagerfeld could go wrong, until I saw this little beauty from Chanel.  Oh, Karl!  What happened here?  
The only two events this outfit would be appropriate for are:
1. A Star Wars Convention
2. A "Harry and the Hendersons" marathon

I'm not going to lie.  A "Harry and the Hendersons" marathon doesn't sound half bad right about now.

Let's be frank.  I don't know who designed this, and I don't want to know who designed this.

It makes my soul hurt.

This shoe was designed specifically for the woman who is going for the "scuba chic" look.  If you are concerned about wearing stilettos in the ocean, then you have much bigger issues than this shoe/flipper.

This one is for all the carb lovers out there.  I'm pretty sure you'd gain 15 lbs just by putting this outfit on.

Dear Lord,                                                                                                  
Please do not ever let me see someone wearing this coat (or whatever it may be.)


If you're looking to be recruited for Ringling Brothers, this may just be the thing for you.

For those of you who are looking to get a head start on this year's Halloween costume, look no further!  This get-up is guaranteed to scare away children and small animals everywhere.

Free People!!!  What is this?!???? Someone, please help me understand what is going on here.

Have no fear, my lovelies.  I will most certainly post some dazzling and delightful pics tomorrow, just to  make up for all the monstrosities posted today.

Wishing you light, love, and a beauty filled Wednesday,
