The Fashion Police give thanks…

Fashionpolice

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Now, we know many of our US readers will be too busy enjoying the holiday to be fretting over crimes of fashion, but for those of you who’ve found the time to check in with The Fashion Police, we thought we’d give some thanks of our own. Fashion-related thanks, natch. So, right now The Fashion Police are thankful for:

1. The fact that Crocs seem to be losing popularity.

It’s not happening quite quickly enough for us, of course, but our eyeballs aren’t being assaulted by Crocs quite as often as they were last year, and if that’s not a reason to be thankful, we don’t know what is.

2. Skinny jeans

People have been predicting their demise for years now, but they’re still around, and even although we know many of our readers would like to feed us to the sharks for continuing to love skinnies, we don’t care, because you’ll be prising them off our cold, dead legs.

3. Christian Louboutin, Roland Mouret & Vivienne Westwood.

Because they make the world a prettier place.

4. The British high street

Because it gives us budget versions of designer fashions we couldn’t otherwise afford, plus some little gems of its own. Topshop, Miss Selfridge, Primark, River Island, Dorothy Perkins, Warehouse, Oasis, French Connection, ASOS, New Look – we salute you. And the rest of the stores we’ve neglected to mention here, too.

5. Net-a-Porter

Best. Online. Store. Ever. FACT.

6. Our readers

We don’t want to get all mushy and embarrass you, and we are tough cops after all, but you guys are great, you know that?  * Group hug *

Your turn, readers: what fashion-related (or what the hell, non-fashion related if you want) things are you feeling grateful for?

    Well I’m thankful that I’ve finally been able to ditch the expressionless clothes that I was wearing at this time last year and embrace my own style 🙂

    Scarves. With jeans. Dresses. Trousers. PJs. Like your skinny jeans (which I am also thankful for), a scarf will have to be unravelled from off my cold, dead neck.

    I am grateful for losing 38 lbs since July 2007. My clothes are falling off, but I get to buy more, right? And also, my husband and son and the fact that we have not been hurt by the economic downturn so far.
    Have a great holiday!

The Fashion Police is two years old today….

Birthday_cake Today TheFashionPolice.net celebrates its second birthday as a blog (the site existed before that, but it was two years ago today that we moved to the current format and published our first post), so we just wanted to take some time out from our regular police work to say a big thank you to our regular readers for showing us such great support over those two years.

Since the site launched, it’s gone from strength to strength, and now regularly attracts over 8,000 visitors per day. If you’re one of them, thank you for reading, commenting and joining us in fighting those crimes of fashion. We hope there will be many more years to come![Image]

    Happy birthday to your site, Amber! 🙂 I’ve been reading less than a year, but it was an instant favorite, and it is very reassuring to know there are still people with taste in the world (if all the way across the pond). Many happy returns!

    Congratulations! I just started visiting, but I’ve instantly become a daily reader. And I’m sure there’ll be many fashion crimes to penalize in the future!

The Fashion Police gets a new look!

Well, we got a new logo, anyway, courtesy of the lovely Terry! We’ll be making some more changes to the look of the site over the next couple of days, so if you notice anything not looking as it should, don’t worry, we’ll just be working on it. In the meantime, enjoy our new little Fashion Police ladies on their red catwalk!
