I am somewhere between confused and delighted

I was just flipping through style.com, checking out the latest from Paris Fashion Week when I came across Jean-Charles de Castelbajac's collection and had to totally stop because... dude, is that girl wearing a dog??

Answer: Why yes, yes she is. And then I clicked next a few times and saw this look...

Does this remind anyone else of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? This chick just looks so incognito (in the most conspicuous way)! Plus, how great would that hat be when you are having both a bad hair day AND a major dark circles under the eyes day? Am I right?

But then...

Really? Is this whole collection a tribute to the 101 Dalmations buildings at the All Star Movies resort, where I worked for several months straight? (because I missed the bid and didn't get to pick Music and dude, that was bad.) So many doggies!

OMG. THE HAT HAS A FACE. FACE HAT! I'm guessing that there is some sort of Cruella DeVille thing going on here? Especially since there is also a lot of fur in the collection?

And wait! What is the hand thing? Is that a necklace? Or a scarf? Or is something really shady going on with an invisible man on the runway?

This chick is basically wearing horsie pajamas. I want to be her friend.

Me at 10 years old wants this sweater SO. BAD.

I just... I'm just... I can't even comment anymore.

If you don't buy me a tarantula hat for Christmas, I will probably never speak to you again.

I don't need to see anything else, best show of the season. I don't remember the last time a show left me both totally delighted and totally saying "WTF??" I am in love!

Where in the World is Carmen San Diego was my favorite!! I want to know who would actually wear this stuff, and where would they wear it??

After the second picture, I scrolled to the first and thought, "This is 101 Dalmations." BAM. Nailed it.

Your comments were hilarious. And I would tote buy that sweater for 10 year you. Wait, it's probably a millionty dollars right? Good thing you aren't 10 years old anymore...
