Shop-n-Tell: Kornbread Shorts

08/17/2006 at 04:11 PM ET

Never one to jump blindly onto the fashion bandwagon, I wasn’t sure if cuffed shorts were for me. But on a trip to find my sister a birthday outfit, I discovered a gem: Kornbread shorts! These summer essentials were a funky green print straight out of Kenya, but with a couture cut. I had found something worthy of my chicken legs! They are Brigitte Bardot meets Josephine Baker, and I’m not the only one who thinks so. Nicole Richie and Diane Kruger, among others, have a pair of these African print shorts! Perfect for the beach or throw them on with some black leggings and pumps for a night on the hot Hollywood streets. Kornbread also offers dresses and tops for $130-$230. Grab them at Ron Herman, or if you are in Los Angeles, Diavolina on Robertson Blvd., 310-550-1341. — Amy Keith

I can’t believe what I’m seeing. I was in Peace Corps and I had the entire 2004 J. Crew catalog made by my African Village tailor for about 10 bucks. I love my clothes, and I’m so happy they’re in style. But I hope that most the cost of ($150) one pair of African cloth shorts go to a good cause. If you really want to be in style join Peace Corps and find your own tailor.
