Testing... 1, 2, 3...

Some thoughts on the Milan 2003 Spring Collections

Maurizio Pecoraro has been mysteriously channeling Anna Sui, don't you think?

Then there's the case of Miuccia Prada, deconstructing my cool-shades-on-head accessory wearing 1970s Malibu PJ Barbie:

I lovelovelove the severe, non-pastel Prada palette for Spring: brown and light blue, brown and beach grass green... bring those subdued colors on! Woo!

In other news, it rained here today. This is very exciting news for anyone who's a Fall... I'm kidding, of course. This is exciting news for people like me who enjoy wearing sweaters and coats and boots and scarves. Neither my warm weather nor my cold weather wardrobes are very extensive; however, I think you can get away with wearing the same things over and over again MORE in the autumn/winter than in the summer (when everything gets sweaty and gross.)

Rue-Madame's Testing Labs has been comparing the efficacy of a deluxe, expensive conditioner (Terax Crema) with a cheaper, drugstore type (L'Oreal Nutrivive) and extensive, rigorous examination has unearthed the following:

- Terax is indeed better, but the smell, THE SMELL! People, there is just no reason for this stuff to reek of Mongolian Beef. The scent dissipates as your head dries, but showering with Chinese food is not my idea of a fun way to spend shower time.

- L'Oreal Nutrivive is excessively perfumy, but it works really well. There was a 2-for-1 deal at Rite-Aid, so this bottle of conditioner worked out to being $12.50 cheaper than Terax, and about 90% as moisturizing.

Rue-Madame's Testing Labs has also been studying lip balm, and the current results are Kiehl's: 0, Caudalie: 1. In fact, Caudalie kicks some serious ass. The only problem is that it's way too expensive here. Next time your friend goes to France, ask them to buy you some.
