Creepy Dress Updates Your Facebook Page, Taps You On The Shoulder

Soooo, just how addicted to Facebook are you? How do you feel about a dress that would render you literally attached at the hip? Designer Jennifer Darmour has created Ping, an outfit/gadget hybrid that allows you to update your status through gestures — putting the hood up sends one message, tying the straps sends another. While this seems odd — yet tame — enough, things get really creepy when the fabric itself generates a “light tapping sensation through the shoulder piece” when one of your buds updates or sends you a message. Er, nifty idea, but we think we’re gonna have to pass. [Tom's Guide] Keep reading »

Time To Get Glowing

One of our favorite makeup lines has combined three of our favorite products into one discounted set. What’s not to love? The Nars So Famous Set includes one Bettina Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, their best-selling Deep Throat Blush, and their cult favorite, the multitasking Orgasm Multiple. Each boasts just a hint of shimmer and peachy hues, which look so good on so many skin tones. Peach is the hue makeup artists rely on when sending their famous clients down the red carpet.

J.Lo Goes Feral

No offense, Jennifer Lopez, but I wouldn’t be caught dead watching “The Back-up Plan.” (I don’t think I bought a ticket for “Maid In Manhattan”, either.) However, I could feast my eyes on this catty Monique Lhuillier gown all day. Rawr, and stuff. [Miami, 4/14/10] Keep reading »

6 Items You Should Never Buy Online

It goes without saying that drunk online shopping can get you in all kinds of trouble ranging from the ha-ha kind to the way serious variety. But it’s not just when you buy, but what you purchase. While e-commerce has made all of our lives a hell of a lot easier–anyone miss the mall? didn’t think so–it can be a territory fraught with danger. And man, having to pack something up and return it by mail is a total drag. Ladies, don’t make the same mistakes that I did. After the jump, six ways things can go very wrong. Keep reading »

10 Of The Highest Heels On The Market

highest heels jpg
It’s pretty obvious that when it comes to women’s shoe styles, right now it’s all about the higher the better. The platform shoe trend shows no sign of slowing down, and some eco-minded ladies are even turning to stripper shoes to buy the same kind of humongous heels designers are pushing on us at bargain prices. In order to ease into this thing, click through as we start big and inch our way up to HUGE.

Rock And Roll On The Cheap

Sure, it’s fun to play with the studded-everything trend that’s going on right now, but it’s hard to justify the crazy price tags attached to most of these items. That’s why we’re vibing on this animal cruelty-free, chained and studded carry-all that’s so right now, because you won’t feel bad when ladylike is back in and this moves down in closet rank.

Forever 21 Lookbook Styling: Confusing, Terrifying

Big, mainstream brands like J.Crew and Target have done an exceptional job turning their images around with the help of artful styling. In the case of the former, Jenna Lyons and a team of hip stylists create the kind of frothy tableaus you see here and lookbooks to compete with any high-fashion brand, and the latter gets the job done thanks to collaborations with “it” designers like Rodarte. Forever 21 has evolved into a more sophisticated brand as well, attracting plenty of over-21s who want to buy into their sweet, oh-so-sweetly priced trendy goods. We love ‘em! But when it comes to the professional styling game, it looks like this season at least, they have failed. No really. FAIL. [Nitrolicious]

Paris Wears Her Greens, All Of Them

We considered putting this photo of Paris Hilton on The Fashion Peacekeepers, but, honestly, it was really, really hard to think of anything positive to say about this curious ensemble. (Bonus points for matching sneakers to leather handbag? Um.) So, uh, we’re just gonna let it be. [Beverly Hills, 4/13/10] Keep reading »

Jeans For The Less Traditional Bride

Finally, I’ve found something to wear to my wedding! Amazingly, this stunning vision in denim–called “Chandelier Crystal Feather rosebud jeans” and filed in Etsy’s Bridal section–has not landed on the hallowed pages of Regretsy, yet. Thanks to BuzzFeed, they are making the internet rounds today though, and after checking out the deets on the original listing, we were almost as shocked by the totally fair price of $925.00 (!) as we were by the full-scale version of the jeans in all their glitzy glory as seen on the model, after the jump!
