By now, you’ve probably heard that we are experiencing an extremely warm winter here in New York. It’s been about 65 degrees and I am praying that it stays that way! In honor of this beautiful weather, I decided to try those impractical-looking hot pants you’ve seen on the runway for the fall/winter? I first spotted them in Marc Jacob’s Fall 2013 fashion show (with the giant sun below) and thought they were fabulous but in that snow, I just didn’t see it happening.
Well, I love these Marc Jacobs hot pants and you can pair them with those see-through skirts to make a bold statement. Not for the faint of heart but absolutely fabulous.

So Lady Gaga’s new album ARTPOP recently came out and I’m curious to know why she named her album ARTPOP. In any case, I’m loving the references to traditional artwork and her recent fashion (or shall I say costumes?).Anyway, Gaga has always pushed the boundaries and with the world’s first flying dress, she has now made history.
From her meat dress to futuristic costumes, Gaga is shifting the paradigm on what we think is wearable. And it seems like either Marc Jacobs and the Gaga team had a chat before the Louis Vuitton Spring 2014 Show or Louis Vuitton simply took some inspiration from Gaga’s surreal approach to fashion. Do you think one day we’ll all be wearing clothing that can take flight? It’s possible. Or now that see-through has become the norm (at least on the runway), how about if we all just started wearing body paint or at least tried to get into one of these Louis Vuitton
costumes or shall I say jumpsuits.
