Lacking in bore

You’re looking at Celine, the Shoe Girl, and while I will, of course, mention the shoes — goofy little demi-bootlets from Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B. operation — what I really wanted you to see was the dress:

Betsey Johnson dress with a lot of guns on it

I heart this cobalt blue, especially with the black overlay, and what’s that pattern anyway? Right: handguns, with occasional rounds (which likely don’t fit) floating by. Betsey Johnson actually produced this dress, along with a similar “Gun Show Sweater”, and it’s just too bad they’re out of stock. As it happens, Celine actually designs shoes for Betsey Johnson, so she might have scored this dress for a tad less than the $268 list. Her own comment:

I love the gun print. Girly and badass at the same time. So Betsey.

What I really want to imagine, though, is the effect of this sweet little dress on your friendly neighborhood hoplophobe.

    I would totally wear this outfit. Well, except for the shoes, I think. No, on second thought, even the shoes. I love this whole look. And the gun print is a very nice touch. :) I dig firearms. I think in a former life I was Gabrielle Anwar’s character Fiona in the USA network show Burn Notice… really into exploding stuff and shooting stuff.

    Keypad belt buckle’s a nice little touch, too.

    That jacket, though – apparently a wardrobe remnant from a 50′s-era porn flick titled “Snow White And The Seven Biker Dwarves”…also, looks like she’s been spending a bunch of time at the range, her right-hand trigger finger’s all bandaged up…

    Clearly, a Neighborhood Hoplophobe’s worst nightmare – along with a seven-foot-tall, 275-pound, cammies-clad and (legal-length) sawed-off-toting former Marine with a full handlebar moustache and face-splitting grin, of course.

    Thank you for the mention <3 I'm actually afraid of guns so I've never been to a shooting range though I should probably get over it and go. I bet I'd have fun ;)
