Fancy French Fashion -- Poubelle

There's a chic new fashion coming out of France.  It is called "Poubelle" and it's conquering the haute couture world.  Always on the cutting edge of style, I thought I'd give it a try.

I picked up this fancy new gown yesterday.  It is crafted by the talented designers in The House of Rubbermaid, a venerable establishment situated in the center of Paris.  The color of the gown is midnight black and the piece possesses a very sophisticated design.  Granted, not everyone will like its avant-garde style but true art never pleases the masses.

For something so elegant, I added black fishnets and velvety black Steve Madden platform pumps.

Honestly, what do you think?  Do you feel it needs a belt?

  2. In my case I'd have to ask, “Does this poubelle make me look fat?” On you, I think it looks absolutely perfect without the belt. LOL

  13. Ha! For a minute, I wondered if you were doing a top hat/dancing showgirl look. You've got the legs for the job. :)

  16. What a fantastic new trend! A belt could look great but at the same time I'm sure you'd like to maintain focus on this sophisticated and elegant piece.

  18. HAHA! Just love the shinier belt, it's the perfect contrast to the matte material!

    1. Poubelle is French for trash can. :)

      Yesterday, after the Mermaid Parade, we were eating pizza in an outdoor restaurant. A worker carried a garbage can by our table. I said to my friends, "I've got an outfit just like that!"

  20. You are a stunning French Rubber Maid. Whew, I'm starting to feel a little hot and bothered. Go easy on us, dear friend, especially the ones susceptible to sexy maid costumes...lol.

    You know I'm perfectly crazy 'bout you, right?

    Love, peace & grace,
    Lynne

  21. Sadly, I couldn't afford your designer Poubelle label. So I found a cheap knockoff at Walmart, but it doesn't have that flattering "nip-in" at the waist or the shiny patent curvature at the hip like yours. It's also a little too short on me. I thought about sending you a picture, but I'm afraid I look trashy.

  22. Oh, my! this trend is starting to be more and popular! I just have to order such dress online as in local stores with have only green ones and in huge size!
    that's so funny! You totally made my day

    P.S. tell your legs I love them. oh no, let it be their nto-so-secret admirer

  23. Oh you are hilarious! I love this. I took French in high school and even though it's been a long time, poubelle is always one of the words I remember - sounds so much nicer than the English translation doesn't it?

    And damn those legs! Amazing.

  27. This is awesome (and speaks volumes about how the world of fashion tends to take itself too serious at times, IMO), point blank, dear Ally.

    If you ever want to quit being a lawyer, well you've got a good chance at marketing.

  29. HAHA! Awesome. You have great legs so you really pull this off. I also like the french line parapluie.

    This reminds of me of the scene from Zoolander where the fashion designer is showing his line called "Derelicte".
