Don't have the spare cash to invest in the Fall 08 hat/head piece craze? Don't worry, we're aware there's a recession coming on (or else you could definitiely drop thousands on a feather mohawk). If you haven't the energy to hit up the markets or vintage store's, Etsy's a gold mine. Remember: if it lends itself at all to 'crafty' you can find it on Etsy. Here's one hat that references the Fall 08 collections by Marc Jacobs (feathers), Monique Lhuillier (flappers) and James Coviello (hats) in one fell swoop. This classy piece of millinery is very inexpensive and we're pretty sure, if you tell people it's couture they won't blink an eye. Oh, fashion, you walk such a thin line!

>> Socialista may have been a fashion week hot spot earlier this month, but something not so hot went down. Turns out one of the bartenders was infected with Hepatitis A, and health officials are warning anyone who visited the establishment Feb. 7, 8, or 11 — i.e. right at the tail end of fashion week — to get vaccinated.
Those who attended fashion week events at Socialista early on in the week — Nicole Miller (Feb. 1), Miss Sixty dinner party (Feb. 3), Betsey Johnson (Feb. 4), Matthew Williamson (Feb. 5), or the Phillip Lim party (Feb. 6) lucked out — but those who attended the Tony Melillo showing on Feb. 8 are not so lucky. Roberto Cavalli and Francois-Henri Pinault, head of the Gucci Group, who both attended Ashton Kutcher's birthday celebration at Socialista on Feb. 7, also not so lucky.
This is one fashion trend that I hope doesn't catch on . . .
