Put your cash in my Prada purse!

March 19, 2008

bag-140.jpgBlog guy, me and some other women are thinking about turning to crime to pick up some extra summer vacation money, but we don’t know what to wear. Is anybody addressing this niche market?

You bet! With the current economic woes, more and more ladies are opting for crime. The fashion houses are gearing up for it, as we’ve seen in recent designer events.

If you’re just talking about routine convenience store robberies, I’d go with something basic in the form of a chic paper bag like the one here. Simple, but classic.

If you’re going for something more daring, like train robbery, that’s different. Look at this ensemble from the recent Fashion Week in Tokyo. It’s everything you need but a horse and gun!

I actually kind of like the coat. I’m not into blackface, though. Maybe the designer was Al Jolson in a previous life…
