For you kids out there who are blogging @ the age of 13, you might not know that reference. Then again, you wise old souls, you probably do. Marlon Brando, a Streetcar Named Desire... oh, never mind.
Just wanted to let you know on the off chance that you didn't already: Stella McCartney has done a line for the Gap, which launches today in the states, tomorrow in the UK & Europe, & the 11th in Japan (and is online now). I've always admired her commitment to vegetarianism. She never uses leather, fur, or animal products in any way. This is a big beef with me (sorry): the way real fur is bad, but leather, which we all wear without a thought... how is that not just as bad? I posted on a pair of Stella's shoes (life imitating art) and while I sometimes don't share her taste in her women's line, I really love what she's done for the Gap (which - sorry, I'm an American girl, born & bred - really is my ultimate favourite brand, and always will be. Nothing comes between me and my Gap jeans).
Even if you don't have kids, the good news is, this line is for up to 12 year olds. If I held my breath, I might just squeeze by.. damn, I could go far with the pink tutu under that fab black military jacket, and, on my feet, her fabulous black faux suede ankle booties!
Have a lovely night, boys & girls, and mind the Gap.
