Real Housewives: Style Icons Or Nouveau Riche Trash?
January 8, 2008
My tolerance for trashy tv far exceeds that of any normal person. So I'll be the first to admit that I have definitely watched an episode or ten of Bravo's The Real Housewives of Orange County. What I don't get, however, is why suddenly so many blogs are telling us how to follow in these women's fashion footsteps. Let's take a look…
Do they look like style icons to you? Vicki could be the cover girl for a cheap brand of tequila, I suppose, but I can't see much else I'd want to buy from them (kind of like I can't stomach a purchase if I've seen Britney wear the same thing). That said, there are plenty of people out there looking for advice on where to buy the clothes these gals have worn. So here are a few of the things we actually, kind of, just a little bit like. Just don't tell anyone where you got the fashion inspiration.
1) I can't fault their taste in workout wear. The Adidas Response Court Tank ($35) keeps you looking good even when you're red-faced and sweat-soaked. For more stylish workout gear, check out our guide to getting in shape in the New Year.
2) Okay, so this Jose & Maria Barrera Triple Strand Turquoise Necklace ($715) ain't so shabby either.
3) There's not much bad you can say about a super stylish Anna Corinna Jet Setter Jr. bag ($468). In fact, I think it might be classier than its owner.
What do you think? Do you watch the Real Housewives for style or for amusement?
