Christian Siriano Finger Puppet 

Uh … Tory … ?

Dear Miss Burch,

I like you. No, I ADORE you. Truthfully – if I was gonna give crime a whirl, I might start with robbing one of your stores blind. (Not with a gun of course. With a candy bar like in that Charlie Sheen movie where he has sex with Kristy Swanson while driving and still manages to win a high-speed car chase.)

HOWEVER, this top is not OK. I live for exposed zippers – live … for … them – but this looks identical to the robe I wear when I’m getting my roots done. And the leopard pants you’ve paired them with? Well that just reminds me of the crazy girl who shampoos my hair.

Here are two of your pieces at Tra Tutti that we love. We’re just going to look the other way on this one.

Tra Tutti – the designer consignment website that brought shoppers the internet sensation Karl Lagermouse – had done it again!

Introducing Karl Lagerfelt – an adorable felt finger puppet! Plus, see Christian Siriano & Anna Wintours immortalized as felt finger puppets as well.

Karl Lagerfelt is a felt puppet that will fit a thin finger, pencil, or pipe cleaner. He is wearing a hand sewn Italian-like suit with stylish tie and starched collar. Of course, he has his trademark ponytail. Karl was completely hand sewn with love and affection, and he is extremely fun for parties & is always in style!

Plus, check out where Karl Largerfelt has already been in our photo’s – before he made it big, he spent NY Fashion Week last year with Project Runway contestant Jack Mackenroth. (All celebrity photo’s taken by Jack Mackenroth)
