In case of emergency, the exits are here, here, here, here here here EVERYWHERE!

I'm sure that Robin Williams would include a fashion emergency - like the one we see this young genie going through - in a list of emergencies wherein, should one occur, it would be acceptable to abandon carpet. It pains me to have to do this, and I'm sorry for being "negative" Allison, but seriously HOW CAN I RESIST. I found this woman hanging out on Carmen Webber's Sistahs of Harlem clothing line website. Oohh dear. I guess it's better that Carmen was eliminated when she was; had it come down to the wire, she may have been tempted to rub her lamp and wish for more wishes. Or "rub the lamp" that Keith Michael was rubbing last season. Even worse.

I would like Carmen and think she is cool even if her website was devoted totally to the design and sale of clown shoes, so I was happy to discover that a lot of her clothes are pretty cute. These are from their Fall 2007 Collection, Her Story: Tales of Powerful Women in Action.

I love that purple dress but recognize that I'm probably attracted to it partly because I would have zero places to wear it. Dresses are like men in this way- the ones we desperately want are not always sensible, and usually cost us the most. [lights cigarette. cue Sex & the City music.]

I can hear Carrie Bradshaw's voiceover now. Although you'd have to draw some trite relationship between the clothes you want because you don't need them and men.
