I shop like it’s my job (maybe it kind of is?) and this weekend I found myself at two very different shopportunities (I’m the worst). On Friday, some friends and I hit up the Opening Ceremony sample sale, which promised a warehouse full of designer items for up to 90 percent off. This meant that items that were usually prohibitively, outrageously expensive, would now be only annoyingly expensive and/or almost reasonable (virtually nothing sold at Opening Ceremony is ever affordable in the slightest). My roommate scored, on my insistence, a slightly damaged Alexandre Herchcovitch dress for $200 (she’s enviously tall and I weep for that dress), and my other friend bought a scarf. I went nuts when I found not only an insane Rosa Cha goth-ycakes blazer (totally not necessary), but also a gorge Charles Anastase safari trench coat (pictured). The only problem?

Instead, everyone was pretty safe and classy, and dare we say it, maybe boring? But are we being too harsh? Take a look and tell us what you think in the comments.

Inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s “Readymade” collection of works — in which the French artist took everyday objects and simply reframed them as objet d’art — designers The Rodnik Band have come up with a dress you can pee in. Or rather, be peed in in. Sure it’s cheeky, but it’s also weirdly loaded to have a woman wear a urinal, don’t you think? Sometimes a rose isn’t just a rose is a rose. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
