Part 2

(We couldn't resist; these outfits were just the outside of too much)

There is something so profoundly awful about this clothing line. Who buys it? It would have to be dedicated fans of Beyonce. No one (no one) is buying it because of its fashion forward styling. Frankly put, it's terribly tacky. It's trendy in the worst way -- you wear it once and everyone will remember it when you wear it again (and not in a fond way). It also celebrates the oh-so-very-five-minutes-ago bling-bling ghetto garb. The metallic gold or silver prominent accents. The logo shouting the label out.

Lately, we've been realizing that stylishly subtle and flattering clothes in subdued or subtle patterns or solid colors are the way to go -- yes, it's taken that long for us to realize what is probably a widely realized fashion truth. As cute as some trendy things may be, we have to give it plenty of consideration. But we just couldn't give anything from this line any consideration. But that's just us. That's the way we roll.

Wear White (Even Though It's Way After Labor Day)

Dream of dressing like Mariah Carey. We find this fascinating that Dereon would design an outfit that is so much the staple of a rival singer’s wardrobe.

We are not making this shiz’ up. That is seriously what the dress is called on the Dereon site:

Freakum Dress 2 In 1

Description: High style with sexy short lengths. An elasticized strap makes way to shirring at center of sweetheart neck on this halter-style tube top with a lurex stitched signature at backside. Matching skirt is designed with rouching all along side seams for a flattering fit and discreet side zip closure. Hook-and-eye closure at side allows these metallic pieces to be worn together but also looks great when sported separately. Lined.
Original price was $79.00, now on sale for $59.99

Be Blue

..You will be if you wear this. Another version of this (very similar) is available at Ross for $19.99

Ds Signature Top

Description: Get D listed with this D-iva worthy look. Metallic printed signature logo design fashions front of this sexy top. Features a wide double v-neck, short flutter sleeves, and crisscross detail atop a cut-out back. This piece is one to wear for getting all the attention on a night out.

* Machine washable
* Made in China
* 28 inches in length
* 55% polyester, 40% rayon, 5% spandex
Price: $48.00

By the way, speaking of shiz' -- WHO writes this dreadful Dereon copy?? "Get D-Listed." Yes, that's what everyone wants to be , those poor folks who'll shell out the $47 dollars more than the actual value of the shirt
