Jumping the Shark

For those of you who don’t know, that term is used for the point where a good TV show goes bad. For example, once the producers kill off an important character or change a critical storyline, the show usually goes down the tubes. I think the same can be said in fashion, or at least it should be. I have been very satisfied with Gustto’s trademark slouchy bags with large studs. And they had to go a ruin it by jumping the shark, designing something so horrible that I’m not sure their brand can recover.

It’s bad enough that Gustto created this Giolitti Gathered Shoulder Bag, an ugly granny-style bag in an even uglier granny color, but they decided it needed a companion – a detachable purse that hangs from the front of the bag. My eyes don’t know what to focus on first – the putrid color, the cheap look of the bag, or the ugly clutch dangling on the front.

Ambitious? Check. Hideous? Check. Overpriced? Check. The next ‘It’ bag? I don’t think so.

    Hey Haute Girl,

    You’ve got a good angle on these bags. Do you actually get to buy a lot of these? I have the LV monogram speedy you posted about a while back and I love it. Too bad I can’t buy more often.

    Are you interested in a link swap?
