Fashion is pain, huh?

I love that Patricia Field used to be in charge of the clothes on "Sex and the City" - she used to both make some of her items and chose the rest from a variety of designers like Christian Dior, Chanel, Marc Jacobs, the yooj. Carrie's wardrobe often veered into the insane - the Vivienne Westwood dress she chose for last summer's film, for example ...

... but you can't deny Field's lasting impact on America's fashion scene. She made Manolo Blahnik a household name, and I've lusted after Carrie's nameplate necklace ...

... for as long as I can remember.

Which is why Patricia Field's clothes on her website are sooo confusingly slutty. Maybe it's just because they're not in the "Sex and the City" context anymore and their full whoriness is totally, obviously on display, but it's simply ... not a good look.

At all.
