Some designer collections have opened at low price point stores, like Peter Pilotto for Target and Catherine Malandrino for Kohl's, and provided new, exciting fashion at reasonable prices. I am a great believer in fun, low cost clothes and I was delighted to buy pieces like a motorcycle jacket for $89 and a pleated, flared skirt for $29. Jennifer Lopez' collection for Kohl's is different and modern. These three celebs are obviously working with great investors to make their low cost lines as much like their upper end counterparts as possible. Brilliant! Genius! Gwen Stefani launched a kids' collection for Target and an inexpensive shoe set for Shoedazzle that are awesome! What a great way to enhance your personal style at rock bottom prices!!!
So I was stunned to see SJP'S shoes. Boring! Exactly what you'd wear to a garden party at your third favorite aunt's home in Alabama. The colors are copies of colors seen everywhere and the shapes are most common to the sales rack at Macy's. THIS for $350???? They're not classic and timeless; they are the worst of the moment. My innocence has been shattered. I will never look forward to a celebrity launch in the same way again. I have seen yet another proof that "trend" is today, "style" is forever.
