Christian Siriano's Collection Is...What We Expected

Thanks, no doubt, to the cozy relationship between the online megastore and the Project Runway folk (don’t forget to utilize the Bluefly.com accessories wall!), Christian Siriano of Season 4 fame is now selling his collection exclusively at Bluefly.

The clothes aren't all bad. My taste skews far nearer to Jillian’s (she’s from Long Island and worked for Searle…is anyone surprised?), so I’m still mourning the fact that I can’t buy her stuff at Bluefly right now, but ok. Trying to get over it.

My major bone to pick with Christian’s clothes is that it seems like in the translation from couture to plain ole designer fashion – and the fact that these pieces are now meant to clothe real women, not edgy, flesh-covered hangers – all that detail of his will start to look cheap and out of place. Like the ‘Posh’ Puff Sleeve Blouse:

It’s $590. Doesn’t it still look kind of cheap? And who wears that? What on earth does she wear it with? Two of SheFinds’ most fashion-saturated minds can’t answer those questions. We’ll pass on the blouse.

On to the better news. The silk ‘Heidi’ Pencil Skirt ($240):

This looks like a flattering, special-night-out number, and I love the way it sits a bit higher than the natural waist – perfect for tucking in a black tank without getting that high-waisted-bra look.
