Magnolia Pearl - what in the world?!

Recommended Posts

GenerationCedarchip

Okay, so I took a look at the Magnolia Pearl site (warning - music kicks in as soon as you access the site!). What is this stuff? Is this Lisa Pennington's business?

I had seen it referenced and was just curious about the fundie connection. I'd never heard of it before, but it looks like stuff that wants really badly to be included in Victoria magazine, but is just way too overblown for it.

Oh my gosh, I *just* went and looked at it before coming here. It's like Victorian clown couture. I actually like flowy, romantic, linen things, even though I cannot pull them off. Bit this stuff is just crazy.

Any discussion of Magnolia Pearl must include this link about the artists' former residence/tetanus-trap, which could only have been sold to the vampire Lestat: fionaandtwig.blogspot.com/2013/03/magnolia-pearl-ranch-and-giveaway.html

Ha! I remember when that place was talked about here, I went and looked at the pictures. Well. Just wow.

Well, I got just about worn out looking at those pictures, what with the models either overwhelmed by ennui of maybe they are zombies with a day job. THEN, I saw the prices.

No kidding! It looks like a crack house that also happens to be haunted by some pretty wicked poltergeists. I kind of get the shabby-chic aesthetic but that just looks shabby-shitty.

The looks is something like "coked out 1990s models go back in time to the 30s, live as hobos for a while, then steel someone's laundry that's outside drying, only to move into a hobo house to do a fashion show".

A poltergeist created by Lady Lydia or that other woman with the wedding dress chairs/tree.

It conveys something, all right. :?

For the record, "convey" is used this way no less than three times in the entry.

Never thought I would delurk in a fashion thread of all places, but I made the mistake of checking the site out and...one thing came to mind: (I'm a total n00b trying to post a picture here, please pray for my salvation if I screw up)

I have an old, formerly white shirt that I just threw in the trash. Anyone interested? I'll make it a FreeJinger Special - Just 250$! Come on- "Buy used, save the difference!"

Oh, and "Hi", everyone. :lol:

Wow! That's frightening! I need to go look through all of the wrinkled clothes that are stuffed into totes in my garage, to see what I can offload in the $300 price range!!! As an added bonus, after looking at the website, I am so fortunate to have Magnolia Pearl ads in my sidebar. :o

This photo conveys to me that the fridge looks wildly out of place with this 'decor'.

In the previous thread about the house, an FJer with real estate experience explained that 'convey' is real estate parlance meaning that something stays with the house when the house is sold, such as appliances. I was like you and was wut until the explanation was given

Checked out the fb page. I'm not convinced this isn't some sort of prank. Shows model wearing 'beautiful' grey sack. Commenter asks if it comes in other colours and what material is it? Like she'd be interested if the sack were, what, puce? It is utterly absurd!!

So the ad for the house is saying that the filthy, moldy ceilings and walls, and the rusted tubs are that way on purpose? Um..

Sorry, it's not a prank. Some Magnolia Pearl items are for sale on Amazon. :lol:

Since some of you are new to this particular rabbit hole, here's the designer's wedding video.

This is fashion? I think the model wearing the tomato cage and holding a bird on a leash looks like she was recently assaulted or just suffered a psychotic break.

I'll stick with a blouse and blue jeans, thank you very much.

the picture of the woman made me think a "Great Expectations" film was coming out! I am not even being snarky. Apparently Miss. Havisham had a secret child. Glad she got married anyway.

This reminds me of the new series Documentary: Now. Does Helen Mirren narrate the catalogue? God, it's so tortured it's a parody.
