Yesterday, I was working along and an IM popped up from my friend Nick. “Do you watch Design Star?” he asked. “I was wondering if I ought to,” I said. “Well, it’s over now,” he pointed out. “But I need to talk to you about what one of the judges, Candice Olsen, wore on the finale. YOU NEED TO SEE IT.”

I had him send it to me. BEHOLD:


My reaction was along the lines of, “YES! WHAT? NO. PLEATS! YES. OMG.”

And please see the back:


Bless you, Candice Olsen, for having the cojones to wear high-waisted, wide-legged denim palazzo pants. On a design show. If there is any justice in the world, someone will intervene here. And
what they will intervene to do is put Candice Olsen and Kelly Wearstler
on the same show together, so they can have a wardrobe-off. It will be
EXTREME. Kelly will show up wearing a neck ruff composed of gold-dipped autumn leaves scavenged from her neighbor’s yard, and then they’ll get into an argument about, like, a backsplash and then it will be ON.
