Blog #1

My first blog entry. Well... I guess I should say what I'll be blogging about, well... As many people in this world, I love clothes, fashion, everything remotely close to that; hence the "coco" in my name ;). So, anyway, this isn't just going to be a blog where I praise the designer from his or her "fabulous" designs, but I'll get both sides, I'll praise and exploit. The phrase "Fashion-Victim" doesn't mean ME, but the people being victimized in this. So, before we get started let's just clarify a few points; I live, breath Marc Jacobs. I don't hate any designer, so you won't find any hate here. I prefer Elle over Vogue, but read both. And, you can follow me on Twitter; @halabx

So, for today, I visited my favorite site, ever, Net-a-porter; visited the "What's New" section (http://www.net-a-porter.com/Shop/Whats-New) can't say anything caught my eye, except I did find the Missoni scarfs OK - the first on that is. But what is with the dresses, eugh! And, Oscar de La Renta? Those two pieces are just dreadful (http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/64762) alone or together; they just made my eyes bleed. 

On to the next page, I just feel like Sonia Rykiel is just to repetitive I mean enough with the same prints, she's been using the same ones since like 2004! I'm not saying I'm not a fan, but she's making it awfully hard to keep my closet from being the same thing over and over again! And, with those designs more than two people end up wearing the same thing, I'll pass this season; for now. See by Chloe - another favorite of mine, failed to please me this season too.

It's still the beginning of the season, so they might clean up their acts, LOL. The winter '09-'10 isn't looking too bad, but then again the spring line rarely looks good.
