ShopUgly 's Thoughts:

Hey Uglies!

So, as some of you have probably heard, Alexander Wang’s new diffusion line will be in stores by the end of the month—the exciting part being the line boasts tanks and dresses for less than $85. But point is, I feel a definite obligation to emphasize/glorify this because:

A) the line, T by Alexander Wang, (and Chictopia) both endorse democratic fashion (aka real clothes for real people)

B) despite my lack of income I think I can kinda sorta afford it :)

C) with the economy sucking ballZZZ it’s nice for the average consumer to have something that isn’t a slap in the face

T by Alexander Wang is made up of tanks, tees, and dresses that are made to look worn and lived in, hailing the “I just woke up” vibe, and going great with one of those lace peek-a-boo bras. They are confirmed to be carried at Barneys New York and Opening Ceremony, and are available for pre-sale at Saks online.

So before I sign-off, giddy with excitement to shelve out my cash, let’s just say I hope such lines will become a trend, because, as Grace Mirabella pointed out to the New York Times, “You’ve got a fashion market that doesn’t know how to do good, inexpensive clothes. That is something which should stop whether there is a recession or not.” And while it’s fun to gawk and drool the most expensive runway looks, it’s always nice to have tangible trends that aren’t limited to the glossy pages of magazines.

I actually tried to buy the black mini-pocket tee at lagarconne.com but it was sold out already. There's one on ebay but do I really want to pay the difference between that and a gap t? Sadly the answer is, yes. There's something special about them and I guess they're still not so expensive as mainline Wang...
