Um, No: Ch’Arms, The Bodyshapers For Your Arms

You can blame Michelle Obama for this one. Thanks, Mobama, for making America so obsessed with your sculpted guns. Of course, most of us are too lazy to work out hardcore enough to actually attain Mobama-worthy results. So now there are shaping devices for your arms to fake having toned limbs. In the bizarro…

A Winter Hat To Tap Into Your Animal Instincts

Guess what: winter sucks. If you live in the Eastern hemisphere like we do, you know that starting December 1st or so, it can be nearly impossible to go outside and feel even moderately warm. You need armor. And preferably something heavy-duty that doesn't look crazy (read: no homemade mustache knit caps or scary bank…

Facebook For Your Feet

As much as Facebook, Twitter, and the internet are a part of our lives, they remain a weirdly invisible part. If you're a die-hard Facebook fan, you should check out Gerry Mckay's Adidas shoes design, which puts the Facebook brand front and center in your wardrobe (well, more like front and down ...

Would You Wear: Skirted Leather Shorts?

When we last left off, the leather shorts debate was still fully raging. So when we saw these "skirted leather shorts" by Ellery, we had to wonder if they would attract or disgust pro-leather shorts wearers. They've got that whole edgy "Tron" vibe, which has been oh-so-popular as of late, and the skort…

Pretty In Pantone

In Some Corners Of The World, Beauty Is In The Unibrow

We've spent much time and money waxing, tweezing, and threading the hairs that grow between our two eyebrows (and we imagine so have you). But this process, it turns out, isn't shared by all women in the world. Over in Tajikistan (a small country just north of Afghanistan), women pride themselves on their full-grow…

Cyber Monday Online Deals Rundown

While there weren't any death-by-tramplings this year on Black Friday (and thank goodness for that), we'd still rather avoid a holiday shopping crowd at all costs. So, hooray for Cyber Monday, which lets you skip the long register line and screaming kids and scoop up deals and savings in the privacy of your ow…

I Wanna Grow Old With You … So We Can Use This Rocking Chair

Braille Leggings Make You Easy To Read

Check this out: Mind What You Wear is a Dutch label that does what it calls "guerilla fashion" to promote non-conformism, awareness, and small revolution through dress. They've got a number of bizarre and off-beat items (try: a sock for your penis, fake Louis Vuitton bags printed with the word "fake" on them, etc.)…

Relevant Now: Commando Kilt-Wearing

As you may have already heard, today is "Opt Out Day," in which people intend to protest the TSA naked x-ray machines by refusing to go through them and instead get a pat down. Some have even called for more drastic measures—Jeffrey Goldberg at the Atlantic has come up with the brilliant idea…

Dolce & Gabbana In Some Deep Legal Doo-Doo

Italian luxury label Dolce & Gabbana is facing some serious legal trouble after being formally accused of tax evasion. And according to the charges, this isn't a discrepancy of just a few million, but more like a debt of $1 billion. While the designers claim innocence, there's definitely something fishy with the case.

Do Not Want: Boobs Necklace By Neivz

We spend enough time dealing with gawkers who blatantly stare at our chests. So we highly doubt that wearing a necklace depicting boobs would help much in the matter. Well, maybe it would stall a bit, but second after your necklace, your boobs would surely be the focus. [80s Purple]…

The Perfect Fashion-Meets-Business Laptop Carrier

The problem with pretty laptop sleeves is that you hardly ever get to see them when they're stuffed in your purse. (Unless you take to carrying around your laptop as a huge clutch, which doesn't seem very comfortable, safe, or practical.) Enter Rebecca Minkoff and her wonderful laptop carrier that's half purse, half case. Both…
