Irregular Choice Thumper: crimes against bunnies

These Irregular Choice Thumper shoes will be available to buy in the UK in just a few short weeks. Do you want to walk on a rabbit, though, or do you think these bunnies should be set free? Let’s take a look at the evidence…

Irregular Choice Thumper heels – available this March

OK, Irregular Choice, we get it: you’re “quirky”. And also a little kerrrazy. Your the choice that is “irregular”, for people who love to be different, and ain’t nothing wrong with that.

There’s a difference, though, between “quirky” and “looking like you’re stepping on an ickle pink bunny wabbit, OMG, who would do such a thing!” We know which of those WE think these Irregular Choice Thumper heels is (the clue is in the post title, just in case it’s not obvious enough for you), but we’re curious to know what YOU think.

Irregular Choice posted a photo of these on Twitter last week, and Schuh, who’ll be selling them in the UK, posted their own image of the shoes on their Facebook page: you can see the red version here, and the black version here. The reaction was, predictably, mixed. As with so many of Irregular Choice’s designs, it seems that those who love them REALLY love them, and will be counting down the days until they’re available to buy (probably just in time for Mother’s Day, if you’re in this camp, and already pulling out your credit card), while those who hate them think you might as well buy a plastic dog toy and glue it to the sole of a shoe.

Basically, what it boils down to is that those who love them see an OMGCUTEBUNNYWUNNY and those who hate them see the SAME cute bunny… being stamped on. “A bit uncomfortable for the bunny,” remarked one Facebook user. Well, quite.

These will be available at Schuh this March, and will retail for £99. What we want to know is, are they a crime of fashion? Do you see the cute rabbit or the trampled rabbit? Is it a crime of fashion, or did you not even bother reading this far, because you’re off to camp outside Schuh until they’re available?

Adult Onesie, Crimes of Fashion

Adult Onesies: What’s Up Doc?

Bunny animal all-in-one

We know we’re fighting the good fight against adult onesies all on our lonesome here, and that as soon as this post goes live, we’ll start getting comments telling us it’s “NONE OF OUR BISNISS!” what people choose to wear at home, and that they’re “SO COMFY!”*, but we will continue to fight it. Because if there’s anything funnier than the idea of grown adults solemnly going about their business while dressed as Bugs Bunny, we’ve yet to see it.

Actually, on second thoughts, maybe we won’t fight the growing wave of adult onesies. Sometimes we all need a good laugh, after all, don’t we?

This one is from Topshop: click here to buy it.

*The same argument is regularly made in defence of Crocs. The prosecution rests.

Crimes of Fashion, Dresses

Cute or Creepy? Daniel Pellilo Bunny t-shirt dress

Rabbit dress

We thought you all might need some cheering up after the trauma of this morning’s attack on a skirt, so we found you this ickle bunny wabbit dress to look at. Now, though, we’re just worried that we may have made things worse, because are those FANGS? Is that some kind of vampire rabbit? Will YOU be able to sleep tonight?

Let’s see if we can bring this back into “cutesy and twee” territory, shall we?

Is it working yet?

OK, how ’bout now?

No?

Last attempt: imagine that this is your graduation gown, and everyone in your class has to wear one:

We’d go to THAT school, that’s for sure…

Mandy Coon Leather Bunny Bag: for the “woodland animal” trend

Rabbits are totally the new black, readers. Not only are people keen to wear them on their heads, now they’re also able to carry their prostrate forms over their shoulders, thanks to this leather bunny bag by Mandy Coon (Don’t worry, no bunnies died to make this bag: lambs did.)

We guess this will certainly cause people to do a double-take as you saunter casually by with what appears to be a skinned rabbit tucked under your arm, but does that idea appeal to you at all? If it does, just click here to buy it for $619…

What To Wear

What to Wear With Bunny Ears: the results!

Rudi’s outfit

Ever wondered how you’d actually go about wearing all of those woodland-animal-themed headresses that have been popping up in all our favourite stores for the past few weeks now? No, to be honest, we haven’t either. We HAVE, however, wondered how all of our readers would wear them, so on Friday afternoon we set you the challenge of creating an outfit based around a pair of bunny ears. What would you do, we wondered? Would you try to tone the ears down with something stylish but simple, or would you decide that if you’re going to be wearing rabbit ears, you may as well go all out with the rest of the outfit?

The answers are under the jump (not forgetting the one at the top of the page, of course), so take a look and don’t forget to vote for your favourite outfit in the poll you’ll find at the end of the post! Did any of them inspire you to buy a pair of these?

Style Challenge: What to wear with bunny ears?

We were going to give you a Style Challenge this week based around a pair of antlers or something, because God knows, the woodland animal look is just all the rage right now, isn’t it? We’re not quite that cruel, though, so we’re going to ask you to style this bunny ear headband instead.

Now, given the popularity of the “Dress Like a Woodland Animal” trend, as we’ve christened it, bunny ear accessories are even more popular than antlers at the moment (and there’s a sentence we never thought we’d type!), so we’re curious to see just how you’d actually wear these. Will you play them up? Dress them down How would you style a bunny ear headband, assuming you absolutely HAD to wear one?

As always, you’ll find the rules of the game under the jump, so take a look before you get started!

Style On Trial

Dressing like a Toddler: Killah Sequin Bunny Sweat Top

Awww – lookit! An ickle bunny wabbit! Wiv sparkly bits! How cuuuuute!

Cute on a four year old? Yes. Possibly even cute on a ten year old. A teenager might just pull this off with enough “innocent chic” aplomb, and worn with a dash of irony I can even see it cropping up in the lecture theatre… But we’re going to stick our necks on the line and say that if you’ve graduated? You most likely can’t pull this one off.

Which is a shame, because you know we’re all about the stripes!

So, will you be channelling your inner toddler this season? If so hop (yes, we went there) on over to Oli.co.uk where £40 will buy you a free pass to nursery school – and possibly a few bemused looks to boot!

Daylight Robbery? Ms Fortuna Pearl Bunny Ears Headband

Bunny ears have been infiltrating the word of fashion for some time now, perhaps influenced by Alice in Wonderland’s White Rabbit, who knows?

This isn’t the first rabbit ear headband we’ve noticed in our policing of the web, but it IS the most expensive: it’s £255 / £392, which seems like a helluva lot for a strictly novelty item,

IS it “strictly novelty”, though? IS it Daylight Robbery? It’s up to you, but if you find in favour of the bunny, head over to Liberty where you can buy some ears of your own.

Adult Onesie, Crimes of Fashion

Dress Like a Toddler Trend claims further victims: Opening Ceremony’s Max Suit

We’ve made no secret of the fact that we don’t really get the whole “Dress Like a Toddler” trend, or why adults would want to dress up as ickle wickle bunny wabbits and the like  – even in the privacy of their own homes.

When the adults in question are prepared to pay $610 for their onesies, we’re even more confused: and the fact that this one is sold out at Opening Ceremony conforms, that yes, there are people willing to do exactly that.

The mind boggles.

Crimes of Fashion

Daylight Robbery: Emilio Pucci lapin earmuffs

Pucci_earmuffs Oh how the other half live, eh? Can you imagine a situation in which you suddenly realise you can’t live without a pair of bright purple designer earmuffs – and are willing to pay £220 for them – readers? We can’t, but then again, we can’t imagine a situation (other than a life or death one) in which we’d suddenly find it acceptable to wear a dead bunny on our heads either, so perhaps we’re not best placed to judge on this one.

Seriously, though: £225 for a pair of purple earmuffs. Has the world gone mad? And can you imagine how the rabbit would have felt if it had only known it was dying for this?
