Guess Which Company’s Advertisement Now Boasts This Racy Photo

At first glance, this racy pic looks like a lingerie ad or at least a fashion spread from a high style magazine. But it’s for neither of those things.

For Designers Banking On Instant Gratification, “Seasons” May Become A Thing Of The Past

While we are die-hard Fashion Week fans, we’ve often griped about the frustration it brings because winter collections are shown in the summer, spring collections in the winter, and so on and so forth. With the way the fashion world is set up, it often feels like you can never see what you want and then buy it the same day—even when the season is off.

What do you think of these sequin-happy shoes? Awesome or insane? [High Snobette] Keep reading »

When The Weather Outside Is Frightful, Try This Sleeping Bag-Like Suit?

We’re reluctant to admit this … but upon seeing this sleeping bag-like down suit, we emitted an audible “Oooh.” Because if fashion didn’t matter at all, we’d be so much happier walking around in one of these for the winter months rather than our peacoats. Because, really, people: peacoats do not keep you warm. And yet we always pretend they do. Bring on the puffy suit! [Gizmodo] Keep reading »
