l'economie, je deteste!

It's been an especially bad couple of weeks in fashion news. i-D went down to six issues a year. Emma Cook and Veronique Branquinho folded. And now Christian Lacroix has officially declared bankruptcy, and who knows what will happen with the upcoming couture shows? It's not couture without Lacroix, and right now, it's not looking good for the master coutourier. I am so very very sad, yet still kind of want to justify buying a pair of black caged liquid leggings. Are my priorities a little out of order? Yes. Yes, they are. But look at them.

Tomorrow, manfriend and I are heading out on the road trip to end all road trips. Destination: Dollywood. With a few stops to visit friends and family in Chicago, St. Louis, and (sigh) South Bend, while hoofing it between Minneapolis and Pigeon Forge, TN, there might not be too much time for blogging.

In the meantime, I leave you with Sasha Pivovarova's awesome wedding pictures from the June issue of American Vogue.

Ooh have fun, lady! My twin sister actually went to Dollywood a year and a half ago (and the entire Tennessee region) and loved it. Her favorite place, though, was Chattanooga. I know this because I hear about it almost daily. I've never been there myself, but we're now looking at doing a two-week roadtrip (with a rented RV, ha, 'cuz we roll like a bunch of old ladies) next year to that area. She tells me she's afraid she's going to start crying and wrap herself around a tree at Dollywood and never ever leave.


Happy traveling!
