Best Romper Room (2010)

James Price

With the New York Times proclaiming the comeback of the Elaine Benes look and luxury labels steadily taking a trip down memory lane, there has been no better time for designer James Price to shine. A child of the ’90s, he slashes floral-print vintage dresses into button-cute rompers and acid-washed denims into sassy pencil skirts that his buxom fashion icon, Married ... With Children’s resident bimbo Kelly Bundy, would approve. His own designs of kaleidoscopic, retro-print crop tops and body-conscious dresses would meanwhile drive Noughties disco dollies gaga, especially when prices go as low as $25. If you want to be a true original style icon, however, check out his towering, gem-encrusted platform stilettos that hark back to the gutter glam Club Kid culture of the ’80s. Sex and the City costume designer Patricia Field’s New York boutique is said to have already ordered a batch. Enough said. hausofprice.com. —Noelle Loh
