SheFinds Examines High Fashion, For The Criminal In All Of Us
October 10, 2007
Just when you think there are no more accessories to be accessorized, high fashion comes along and surprises you.
With the recent trend in naughty celebs under house arrest (think Paris, Lindsay Lohan) Chanel has decided to help their criminally-inspired clients by creating teeny-tiny versions of their classic quilted bags – designed to look like Quilted Ankle Monitors. Yes, that's right. Chanel Ankle Monitors! And, they come in all sorts of colors and fabrics, too.
Have you gotten in trouble with the law lately? Do you also like red polka dots? You're in luck.
So, you're under house arrest, but you don't like polka dots? How about patent yellow leather? Red? Fantastic!
The classic look.
Okay, I know, I know, these are only meant to look like ankle monitors and they're not actual ankle monitors. I just think it's pretty ridiculous that breaking the law has suddenly melded with fashion – and the highest of the high, no less. Plus, they can't be very functional. Even if you can store a lipstick inside, who wants to bend down to the ground to grab it? Not me.
I don't know. Maybe it's supposed to be funny. Maybe I just don't "get it." Regardless, I'm sure department stores will pick up on the idea, and before you know it, thirteen-year-old girls everywhere will be purposefully getting themselves grounded so they can sport their own designer ankle monitors around the house.
If you have to have some new accessories for your legs, and Chanel just isn't doin' it for you, (well, the ankle monitor, anyway) maybe try some leg warmers – a much less costly variation on "out there" legwear fashion. Nordstrom's Rubbish Cuff Leg Warmers come in earth tones and only cost 10 bucks!
Wouldn't life make much more sense if celebrities were simply committing fashion crimes and not making crime…fashionable?
