Pr0n Lust List 6/15

I’m often asked to explain the concept of “Shopping Pr0n”: actual pr0n could be defined as looking at sex that is displayed in a  highly stylized manner which has been made to look appealing, in order to arouse you. 

Shopping is my pr0n.  I love to look at fashion, some of which has been made to look particularly attractive and is certainly appealing to me.  “Pr0n Lust List” will be what I’m lusting at around the web.  Hopefully some of these pieces will find a “forever home” with one of you, most precious pr0n stars.

I’ve almost bought this Juicy Sundress at Tobi more times than I care to admit.  It’s just so sunshiney and comfortable looking.

I love the wide straps and the empire waist with the wide sash.  So why haven’t I bought it?  One, it’s $131.  For a sundress.  Even I have my limits.

Two, I’m uncertain about how Juicy fits.  The one time I tried on their tops they were cut small in the chest and um, that’s not going to work. 

Finally I’m worried about the low back.  If the entire back of my bra is going to show, it’s a deal breaker.  If you’re pear-y, but smaller on top, consider this dress (and send pictures!)

Julie Brown cotton/silk, "Margie" at Bluefly, $172

Speaking of dresses I shouldn’t want, but do, I’m gaga over this Julie Brown diamond print “Margie” dress at Bluefly.  It’s just so…fabulously Twiggy to me. 

Margie has a rounded neckline with a button close panel, it slips on and has 3/4 length sleeves and a cotton voile lining.  I’d like to see this on a fabulous brunette or Norweigan blonde maybe.

Sizes 2-8 with great legs can still snatch this up for $172 (and send pictures!).  Step away from the white go-go boots and try a pair of retro-stacked pumps.

Priorities "Off-Shore" Jacket, $82, Bluefly

Priorities "Off-Shore" Jacket, $82, Bluefly

This Priorities jacket from Bluefly will be mine!  I love layering shorter things over longer things; it can be a really flattering style because it draws the eye up to where you’re smaller, but still lengthens (with the longer piece underneath). 

Normally I frown on one button jackets for busty girls, but because the stance (where the top “V” on the jacket) actually hits here, it’s an exception to the rule.  It’s not a classic one-button style, which are typically for petite women.

$82 is a little high…maybe I can wait until a 20% off sale rolls around.  But omg, how cute is the lining??

Kate Spade Tarrytown Small Maedea, $???, KateSpade.com

Kate Spade is taunting me.  That’s right, they’re doing this just to hurt me personally.  They keep putting on sale their Tarrytown Small Maedea in Robbin’s Egg Blue when I don’t have money, and it’s making me cry.  Dear Kate Spade: I can has July 4th sale pleez?  Luv, Din. 

I saw the bag when it first came in and nearly cried because this bag is made for me.  For me, people!  Except that I can’t buy a $575 handbag. 

The other day it was on sale for $4something and then another 25% off, which brought it down to around $350, which is still expensive, but realistic for a really nice handbag.

I’m not getting an iPhone ’til the holidays, so this could be my birthday present! (I really can justify anything.)  Still, I wait.

Bettye Mueller "Bingo", $129 at Simply Soles

Bettye Mueller "Bingo", $129 at Simply Soles

Bettye Mueller sure got it right when she named these shoes “Bingo”.  They’re on sale over at one of my favorite dream stores, SimplySoles.  $129 is a fair price for a pair of designer shoes, and a great price for a pair of Bettye Muellers.

These are just the cutest things I’ve seen.  Where else would you find a red, white and blue Madras plaid on a pair of 1.5″ kitten heels?? <3  Simply Soles has them in stock in 5.5, 6 and 9.5. 

I’m tempted to wishlist them…just in case.  But if you buy these, my little pr0n pudding, send pictures!

 

See by Chloe Daisy Rosette Dress, $347, Tobi.com

See by Chloe Daisy Rosette Dress, $347, Tobi.com

For my last lust of the week, I want to show you a dress that is so unique.  This See by Chloe Daisy Rosette dress looks like a painting. 

The combination of the simple design and the dreamy pattern make this dress a winner for somebody, and not this poor model who looks so unhappy.  What gives, Tobi?

$347 on final sale (was $695), European sizes 38 – 44, which are U.S….4-10?  I can see this on some fashion-forward beauty with dark hair and pale skin.  Or maybe a redhead! 

I played with this dress over on Polyvore (and actually if you’re a 40 or 42, you can get it for $240 on Net-A-Porter) but I’d love to see someone rock it in real life.

.
Alas, if I were to share with you everything I was lusting after it would probably take up this entire blog.  But I hope you’ve enjoyed some of my favorite pr0n this week!

As always, it was good for me.  Tell me, was it good for you?

Recession Pr0n

Hi Pr0nsters, I’m slowly recovering from my flu hell, and figured if I was sitting on my couch anyway, I’d bring you some lovely bright pr0n, all under $100! In today’s post I have the most divine purple top you’ve ever seen, a turquoise knotted shirt up to 3X, an organic cami and pantie set from Etsy, and a bright blue button down men’s shirt just to name a few. Let’s dive in.

.

$79.00

$79.00 by Shar Dann

I’ve been looking for an excuse to show you this top since I found it…which was a while ago.  Via SmashingDarling.com, which specializes in indie designers, Shar Dann is hand making this absolute piece of art.  It’s made out of Modal/Cotton/Lycra, with a Silk applique.

The last time I featured SmashingDarling was during Eco Friendly Pr0n, when I showed you designer Gina Michelle and her bamboo dresses.

I’m in awe of how this top is gathered and sewn; I can’t believe it isn’t twice the price it is. This is purple; it’s also available in Berry and Black, up to XL, which is a size 16.  I’m tempted to find a place for it in my own wardrobe.

.

If you’re a devoted Pr0nista,  you know by now that I believe good fashion has so much to do with detail.  A twist on a simple design can make a boring shirt exciting. For example this turquoise knotted front top from Missphit.


$36 at Missphit

For only $36 my fuller figure pr0n friends can have this lovely turquoise top up to a size 3x.  What’s so great about the shape of this top is that it’s going to work on you whether you have a waistline or not.

The v-neck is going to draw the eye down and create the illusion of a longer/slimmer neck. Then it knots in every woman’s smallest place: right under the bust.

If you have a little waist, this will just make it look better, and if you don’t, this will just hide your tummy and make it seem like you have one.

Wear it with khakis or a casual skirt or jeans and a pair of heels, and accessorize with a great necklace or a pair of dangly earrings…

…and take with you this adorable fuchsia (I spell that wrong every single time) clutch from Lina Pelle that I found on sale at Luna Boston.

(Surprisingly, the last Luna Boston bag I showed you is still available. Just not under $100.)

Most of what’s over at Luna is so very very pr0nish, including Linea Pelle, which is a luxury leather line, so finding this on sale is a true find.  As I’m sure you can imagine, it’s available in limited quantities – especially when you see the zebra striped lining. Couldn’t you just die?

Luna says “Danielle” is a soft buttery leather with funky silver-tone hardware, and measures 11.5″w x 6.5″h x 1″d – enough for your cellphone, ID/money case, lipstick and condoms. (I’m just saying. A true pr0nista protects herself.)

Accessories are so important, aren’t they, dumplings? I like to accessorize with a lovely man on my arm.  Maybe he’s even wearing this aqua blue-with white squares “Chillin Villian” shirt?

In my travels I’ve learned that apparently men aren’t supposed to wear bright colors.  No wonder men dress poorly; they’re bored witless!

Luckily Tobi has this shirt for you.  They’re calling it green; I say aqua blue.  Toe-may-toe, toe-mah-toe.  What matters is that it’s 100% cotton, made in India, and fits true to size up to an XL.  The gentleman to my right is wearing a large; you can see his measurements by clicking on the picture.

For crisp, cool summer dresses, you can find me trolling the racks at Anthropologie, and I’ll be trying on the Missouri Primrose Shift.

In cobalt blue cotton, with a cotton lining and silk flowers climbing up the side, where won’t you go in this dress?

Put it on with a pair of casual sandals during the day, and change into a dressier pair at night with a delicate bracelet and a cardigan – maybe in red or green.

Its available in regular or petite sizes 2-12 still! Go on – time’s a wasting!

Cami $24, Hipster Panties $14

Cami $24, Hipster Panties $14

To stay cool and comfy, slide into this organic cotton cami/pantie set that Louella Bloom sells on Etsy.

I’ve shown them here in plum, but they’re also available (on sale) in yellow, as well as gray, black, and cream, also as a thong, panti and nightie.

The best part to me is that they’re tagless! If you have sensitive skin like your dear blogger, this should be music to your ears.

For something a bit fancier, see the organic silk set I had, also in Eco Pr0n.

Lovely pron friends, there is a time and a place for plaid. That place is not on your man’s shorts or pants.  It is, however on his sneakers.

These raspberry/blue plaid converses are scrumptious and perfectly appropriate with a pair of easy fitting shorts or jeans or khakis.

You can even wear it with something like the blue and white shirt above, just don’t go crazy. Keep it to one additional color, and you’ll be fine.

.

Finally, just as I started with something I needed an excuse to share, I’m going to end with the same. (Really this whole blog is just an excuse to share things I like, but who’s asking?)

Was $280, now $84

I adore Milly New York. I’d roll around in her line if it could (This is pr0n after all.)  The colors she uses, combined with the classic, feminine shapes, attention to detail, quality fabrics and slight retro winks make this blogger’s heart go pitter-pat.

This red button pleat shirt from Shop Twigs is a prime example. If you lean in a bit,  you can see the jacquard pattern woven into the Italian wool.

It’s 95% wool with a 100% silk lining, and it falls 19″ from the natural waist.  Just imagine it with gray tights and a pair of flat knee-high boots (like these Bandolinos $89.95!).

The front pleat is known as a reverse pleat (because it’s reversed, see?).  Normally pleats = bad; in this case, pleats = good.   The skirt is made in NY and only available in sizes 4,6,8, but what a deal you’re getting! Have I really not shown you any Milly yet? Shame on me!

I hope you found something today to add to your closet.  If not, just wait a day or two; there’ll be more! Don’t forget, every Monday is now a new edition of Pr0n Plus!

As always, it was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?
