I like your shoes...

Harper's Bazaar did a photo shoot with some of my favorite style icons... the Muppets from Sesame Street. I've been watching a lot of the old videos or "classics" as they say on the Sesame Street website with Sadie. She's a sucker for the Ray Charles videos. And she doesn't even notice the afros, bellbottoms or unusual mustard colored clothing. She just likes the songs.

For the record, here are some of the prices for the clothing in this photo shoot.
Left: Cape, $1,990, blazer, blouse, $690, skirt, $3,790, and shoes, $890, Derek Lam. 212-966-1616. Bracelet, $4,375, Dean Harris for Derek Lam. Right: Coat, $2,190, blouse, $1,090, and pants, $790, Thakoon. Stanley Korshak, Dallas; 214-871-3600. Earrings, $450, Fenton for Thakoon. barneys.com. Gloves, Portolano. portolano.com. Shoes, $1,195, Giuseppe Zanotti for Thakoon. net-a-porter.com.

As much as I appreciate Harper's Bazaar for slummin' it down to the Street, I am a little shocked at almost $2000 for a cape. The Count wouldn't pay that much for a flimsy piece of fabric.
What's the Word on the Street? Pretentious.

Meanwhile, Bert has been rockin' the same white turtleneck and striped sweater for over 40 years... which is more environmentally friendly. You can see Cookie, Grover, Abby Cadabby and their take on fashion here.


  1. I GUESS!!!! Crazy. I'll stick with the turtleneck...LOL

  2. That's great. Let's get them while they're young!

    I'm a fan of "classics" online, too. Though from time to time I'm completely surprised at the stuff we used to watch as kids. Particularly some of the old Merry Melodies and Woody Woodpecker. Holy Cow!

  3. Have you seen this chick?



  4. Check out the Muppet show seasons (1-3) now available. My 3 year old refers to episodes by the guest star's name. I.e. "Mom, can you put on Milton Berle for me?"

    PS I guess a cape is out for me for the fall season.

  5. That cape is all kinds of awesome, but $2000? I think I'll pass (as if it were a choice! ;)). I like Bert's style too.
