Speaking of Notorious.....$3290 Prada Gold Lace Skirt!
« on: August 28, 2008, 10:41:59 PM »
I saw this on a NY Times blog about this hideous $3290 Prada gold lace skirt:

In the comments section, someone wrote this:

Would it not be for the Prada logo I highly doubt this would be considered. If this was in some Jackson Heights store window it would be passed by like it doesn’t exist. This fashion world of taste and what right and wrong is a foolish state of slavery. $3290 indeed.

I'm not quite sure.....as a Jackson Heights resident, have I just received a "backhanded insult"??? 

Amusing comment though!

I dunno. If it was in a window on 74th without the price visible, it might be considered. How long was it?

We might have been dissed. At least the Times knows where we are.

sounds like a compliment actually.  I read it as in Jackson Heights people would pass on this ridiculous skirt.
First, do no harm.
