Pret a Porter Makes me a Kevin Bacon Game Champion

posted by Gidge Uriza

I’m a Kevin Bacon game geek. Yes, I still like to play it. It makes me laugh, because I always have my “ringer” I like to pull out – to wow others with my incredible geek-i-tude. Why, you might ask me, am I sharing this with you – wearing this gorgeous dress by Clio – Pret a Porter?

I guess I just finally decided that I should have some Holiday Spirit and let all of you achieve this same level of dork at parties. Actually, most people are usually fairly stunned when you pull this one off because it’s so obscure.

If you don’t know – the Kevin Bacon Game works like this – all movie stars can be linked to Kevin Bacon in less than 6 degrees of separation.  So you say “Link Madonna to Kevin Bacon” and I say “Oh that’s EASY! Madonna was in Vision Quest with Forest Whitaker who was in The Air I Breathe with KEVIN BACON”.

Yeah, it’s THAT geeky.

But the one I like to reserve, for the master stroke of Kevin Bacon Genius is linking Charlie Chaplin to Kevin Bacon. Most people just go “That’s stupid, that isn’t possible.” To which I respond…..”Oh Contrere…….Charlie Chaplin was in a COUNTESS FROM HONG KONG with Sofia Loren, Sofia Loren was in PRET A PORTER with Julia Roberts who was in FLATLINERS with …………KEVIN BACON.”

What does this have to do with Clio’s lovely designs? Not much, but the movie title.

I’m not sure I NEED to say antyhing about this dress. YOU SEE IT don’t you? Truly stunning – a lovely piece with a lot of style that isn’t dated or going to go out of fashion any time soon. I love it so much that I ran over to Shiny Things BAREFOOT to buy shoes to go with it.

Check out Clio – she has a lot of really lovely pieces at her shop……you won’t be sorry.
