While browsing the new Nanette Lepore lookbook, I had to take a second glance at a caption that befuddled me (ps, i love the word befuddled).
If you access Let's Talk Style through your mobile device and can't make out the miniscule text, the caption reads:
At the end of the day, she decides to stay in and let the party come to her.
Am I the only person who finds this text more than a little suggestive?
Clearly this woman is in a bedroom, so I am assuming that Miss Thing is having a party in her budoir. When I think of parties in the bedroom, I conjure up images of a.) slumber parties and/or b.) private parties that exist between two mature and consenting adults (or multiple adults, depending on your personal preferences).
And what does all of this have to do with the outfit? If it was a slumber party, she'd be in her jammies and have a bowl of popcorn and a Drew Barrymore DVD on the bed, which rules out my whole slumber party theory.
So Nanette Lepore marketing staff, I ask you -- based on this copy, am I to believe that wearing this outfit will guarantee sexy time is to follow?
No, no Nanette. You are better than this. You are high-end, upscale fashion designer who has her collections sold at Bergdorf Goodman.
Why not go for:
At the end of the day, she decides to sleep in her Nanette Lepore dress - Insinuating that the dress in question is like, way too beautiful to take off?
or more accurately:
At the end of the day, she decides to curl up in bed and cry because she spent half of her rent on her Nanette Lepore dress.
