Casa Casuarina

Those who feel all empty and miss the fun and horrible clothes of the early 90s, the New York Times has a solution for you, although it seems to involve buying things from Donatella Versace’s 2006 mens line. Where is the Things I Hate blog when you need it?

For nearly a decade Ms. Versace has been Italian fashion’s misunderstood bad girl, spiraling out of control as a corporation, valued at $870 million upon her brother’s death, hemorrhaged fiscal value and creative relevance. Ms. Versace’s cocaine addiction, which she discussed in the May issue of Vogue, was an open secret in the industry. At the end of every runway show she would teeter out to greet the audience and the news media, dazed and expressionless as an inflatable doll. It was in June 2004 that friends and family persuaded her to start rehabilitation.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh! Make it stop, please.

    I resent the comment, ”...dazed and expressionless as an inflatable doll.” My inflatable doll is anything but; to the contrary, she is passionate, affectionate, lively, and a whole lot of fun. Best woman I’ve ever had, in fact. Then again, she’s a golden retriever.
