oh dear: jodphurs

we were silently hoping and praying they'd go away but it looks like we're going to have to keep our prayer and meditations beads handy so we don't fall to pieces at every sighting. what are we fussing about this time, you ask? JODPHURS. granted, some earlier sightings weren't too bad, like these two from balenciaga. we're open to being gently talked into wearing them even:

it's the ones that look like they have sagging air bags and/puffer fish attached to them that are quite frightening.

unfortunately (and this really is very unfortunate), we sighted jodphurs again in versace's resort '09 collection and they have yet to invent emoticons for what we're feeling:

excuse us while we go into shock.

while we're on the topic, harem pants invoke similar emotions in us:

we remain baffled by the people who leave their houses dressed in these things, expecting to be taken seriously.

dear gods of fashion,

make all these bad, bad things go away.

Stop! Hammer Time! haha those pants are scary... I see you know a thing or two about fashion ;) I'm loving some of your choices! Since you know style, I thought I'd ask if you've heard about Toyota's If Looks Could Kill? I work with them so I'm happy to share some thrilling new webisodes with you that follow an aspiring fashion designer, Bianca, who's involved in international espionage by night. If you're familiar with the BMW shorts from a couple of years ago (Guy Ritchie, Madonna), these webisodes definitely have a similar production level.

Interactive: Toyota has gone one step further, the viewer can interact with Bianca to help her unravel the mystery that has suddenly become her life. I really enjoy the multiple levels; it adds a dimension of reality to the story and builds a unique relationship between the main character and viewer.

Launch party: We have our official launch party the 11th @ Eyebeam in NYC— with performances by Ashanti, Janelle Monae and Anthony Hamilton. Tyra Banks is also on the guest list!

I'd really love your take on the first episode—Haute Pursuit—and discuss more as the other episodes roll-out. Myself, I'm still trying to figure out who the bad guy is—the ex, the boyfriend, the boss? Or maybe it's Nana? lol

Again, would love your take because bloggers like yourself definitely have a good eye about what's cool, hot and current. I would have contacted you via email but I didn't know which the best way to reach you was. I hope I didn't overstep my bounds by directly contacting you.

Don't be shy!
