If you were a fan of the show, and are a die-hard fashionista (god, how I hate that term), you may remember the scene where Kiki's ne'er do well sister comes back into her life to wreak a little havoc. There's a point where she goes through big sis' closet and pulls out a very plain looking piece and says, "Talbots? Really Kirstin?" to which K responds, "It was a gift."
Most folks would've missed this subtle jab, but fashion insiders heard loud and clear: the words Talbots and style didn't belong in the same sentence, much less some rich Orange County housewife's wardrobe.

Which brings me to embarrassing admission #2: I want it. All.
Anyone with me on this?
