We saw this Rag & Bone dress at Neiman Marcus last weekend when we were home for the 4th. We actually kind of loved it, even though we're generally not crystal fans, but we couldn't figure out how the kings of elegant workwear ended up making something so sparkly. But a friend of ours (who sold the crystallized frock to an ubiquitous-come-fashion-week TV actress) took a recent trip to the designers' studio, and got the official explanation: As part of Rag & Bone winning the CFDA Swarovski award last year, they were gifted with a serious amount of gems and, not knowing what to do with them, plastered them on the sides of a signature shift. And there you have it - Only they could make an obligation look so good.
Question for Neiman Marcus: Are these A+O Pants Supposed to Have a Hole In The Crotch?
A reader was bewildered by these Alice + Olivia Navajo Fringe Cardigan & Ponte-Leather Leggings on the Neiman Marcus site. We can understand why. There's a hole in the crotch. Zoom in and it's impossible to miss. It sort of looks like a pee hole. We figure the pants are just torn and this is a fluke photo error, but the description does say that there is "distressed detail on inner leg." You can wear them with your period panties and fart patches.
