6126? Call 911.

Disgracing Marilyn Monroe, Lindsay Lohan's new line has managed to push the boundaries of atrocity even further. 6126, a name deriven from Monroe's birthday, carries leggings ranging from $44 to $132. Not only is the price outrageous, but so are some of the designs. The only reason you would need kneepads built into your tights is to protect you from objects people will send your way when they see you wearing them. So go ahead, blow a hundred dollars on these ugly things, twenty more for getting them dry-cleaned (which you need to do for some pieces) and $9839 for your healthcare.

Team Kill Edward

Dear Nordstrom,
I would like to sincerely thank you for ruining the wardrobes of thousands of mentally deranged, over-obsessed teenage girls.
Angrily Yours,
Maliha Khan.

Now, not only do you get to watch the movie and read the book, you get the opportunity to become a walking billboard and an object of ridicule with slogans such as, "Team Edward/Jacob" written all over you. The only thing Nordstrom has done right about this terrible excuse of a clothing line, is releasing it in the month of October. It perfectly coincides with my annual hunt for a Halloween costume. So join me and a stampede of other girls in the search for the perfect Halloween costume, I mean ... fashion forward ensemble. GO TEAM MALIHA!

Unveiling the Veils.

Chauffeur driven Mercedes Benz? No recession while the rest of the world suffers? Welcome to Saudi Arabia, where women have to cover themselves in a garment known as the "burka" or the "abaya." On the other side of the world, Sarkozy publicly declared his distaste for these veils. Four days later, his distaste was met with John Galliano, Carolina Herrera, Nina Ricci, Blumarine and Alberta Ferreti dedicating their entire fashion show to designer abayas. These veils, ranging from $5, 500 to $11,150, are going to be given as gifts to Saks Fifth Avenue's most faithful Saudi customers. Shopping at Saks has become the new religion.

Sack It, Please.

The economy has come crashing down, bringing down with it some of the most luxurious brands and even some people's taste. Sacks, that should remain in warehouses, have been seen making an appearance on streets and runways enclosing the bodies of fashion deficient women. As appealing as that may seem, it's not.
