Quick Tip: Use Self-Tanner On Stretch Marks

As you’re all well aware, it’s swimsuit season. We’re half happy not to have to wear much clothing when it’s about 90 degrees out, but also half annoyed at ourselves for how self-conscious we sometimes get about the jiggly bits. We’ve all got them, but sometimes the little flaws feel more daunting than they reasonably…

Anna Mouglalis Calls Coco Chanel A Misogynist

Anna Mouglalis, the latest actress to play Coco Chanel, thinks the designer was a bit of a misogynist. “She is recognized as a huge feminist, but most of the things she did, she did for herself and not for women in general,” Mouglalis told Vogue. “I would even push it further, thinking she was more…

Anna Under The Influence

Anna Wintour‘s recent outrage over Miss Lily, a Jamaican restaurant she thinks will bring excessive noise to her West Village neighborhood, has inspired some interesting art. Illustrated Anna looks pretty comfortable with that joint, don’t you think? Check out one more drawing by AleXsandro Palombo (of Anna’s daughter Bee), after the jump… [Fashion Indie]…

Introducing Wonder Bread Barbie

Little girls everywhere, it’s finally arrived — Wonderbread Barbie! It’ll be hard to control yourselves, but don’t freak out, OK?! Oh. Wait. No one’s freaking out? Probably because Wonder Bread Barbie clothes actually weren’t terribly high on your list of must-see items. That didn’t stop Catherine McEver from fashioning a whole pint-sized wardrobe out of…

USB Typewriter Unnecessary But Awesome

The pragmatist in me realizes that a USB typewriter is ridiculous and inefficient. That said, the [much more influential] nerd within wants it so badly that I’m crying tears most often reserved for particularly poignant “Battlestar Galactica” moments. The USB typewriter costs about as much as the iPad does, so these nerd dreams may…

McQueen Might Sue Cadbury For Copying

The Alexander McQueen brand is considering suing candy maker Cadbury for ganking their style. While we acknowledge that the new Cadbury Flake commercial (right) does resemble the Kate Moss hologram that floated above the McQueen runway a few years back, we still don’t get it. Why does McQueen care about a few similarities when the…

Fashion Faces Now And Then

It’s hard to see someone like Anna Wintour and believe that she was anything less than robo-fabulous. The thought of Alexander Wang clashing stripes with solids and florals, too, is a tad difficult to imagine. Luckily, now you don’t have to. The Huffington Post has very sweetly distracted us from real work with their roundu…

Worth The Splurge: House Of Harlow Jewelry

Nicole Richie has come a long way since her “Simple Life” days and, aesthetically speaking, nowhere is that more evident than her jewelry line House of Harlow. We remain skeptical about her Winter Kate clothing franchise, but Nicole’s jewelry is consistently an expert blend of vintage and modern, forcing us to lust after pretty much…

Yeah, We’d Play Soccer In That

The World Cup has an official car, so I guess it was only a matter of time before it got a skanky mini dress, too. And here we were thinking that the soccer-sploitation couldn’t get any worse. [Copyranter]…

Style 911: How To Pull Off Voluminous Sleeves

I’m a lover of the voluminously sleeved white blouse. When handled correctly, a puffy sleeve does glorious things to an outfit. When done badly, however, you get a pregnant-looking train wreck situation. Click through for tips to get it right.

Hand Sanitizer Grows Up With CLEAN

Sorry to those of you who religiously carry Purell in your purses, but that stuff just makes me feel stickier than I was before using it. Whether it’s the chemicals or the faux green color or the noxious, hospital-like smell that does it is hard to say, but hand sanitizer kind of curdles my stomach.

Beached Mermaid

If Ariel from The Little Mermaid got really into fashion, cut her hair a bit and was then caught in a really strong, shoreward tide, this is what would happen. Honestly, we don’t hate it. [Fashion Copious]…

Worth The Splurge: SEE Sunglasses

We have officially had enough of tacky, logo-covered designer sunglasses. Not only are they super expensive, they’re also a bit garish and we’d like to return to the days of under-stated elegance and logo-free retina protection. Is that so much to ask? SEE Selective Eyewear doesn’t think so. Their sunglasses — and regular glasses –…

Getting In Shape Is Not Worth Wearing New FitFlop Clogs

FitFlop, purveyors of unattractive but not terrifying “toning” flip-flops for those who want to look fit without actually working out, has unleashed a fresh hell on us all. And what is that hell, you ask? It’s clogs. Plastic, studded and shiny in all the wrong places, the new FitFlop clogs could easily be Crocs’ flashy…

Tourist Fined €1000 For Buying €7 Counterfeit Louis Vuitton Bag

In an apparent effort to be as ridiculous as possible, Italian mayor Francesco Calzavara has instituted insane fines for people caught purchasing counterfeit goods. Ursula Corel, a 65-year-old tourist visiting from Vienna, learned this the hard way last week when she was fined €1000 while haggling for a €7 Louis Vuitton replica on the beach…

Fred Flare Skirt Beats Anthropologie Style At Half The Price

We’ve had a thing for this Anthropologie skirt (left) for a while now. The bright colors are alluring, the shape is flattering, and we just want it, dammit. A rather unattractive price tag, however, has held us back. That, after all, is not the sort of skirt you can wear all the time without being…
