Learn the ropes

Nautical Vanity by Fendi

Forget those swearing sailors and their can't-keep-them-on gold brass studed pants. Think ropes and boats when you go down that ubiquitous nautical road in 2006.

As dark as the night, the sinous ropes and cloudy shade of this Nautical Vanity from Fendi reminds me more of the wicked Scylla than Popeye the sailorman. The next time you want to sail down this style, think of turbulent seas and mysterious nights instead of gay Donald-duck costumes. Hell knows, we've seen enough of Disney in Junkfood tshirts already.

P.S. Rope sandals ain't a bad idea too.
