Kanye may be adorning his lady in the finest merkins ermines can sacrifice their lives for, but men will be sporting no such genitalia luxury this year. Spotted last night on the runway of Rick Owen’s show at Paris Fashion Week was the hottest (god willing) new trend in menswear: flopping, ever-present dick. (Click here to see an even more NSFW image than the one above.) Keep reading »
When Target announced that its latest collaboration would be with Lilly Pulitzer, the godmother of American resortwear and technicolor prints, reactions were mixed. Her fan base — crazy, evangelistic, largely white — was less than pleased, worried that their precious brand would be sullied by the unwashed masses plundering Target’s aisles in search of stretch pants and toilet paper. But, the plus-size fashion community rejoiced, because for the first time in Target’s history of designer collaborations, this collection would be available in larger sizes. Finally! As someone who toes the line between straight and plus size, the Target collaborations have long been something that I can just look at and never really get. Even though Lilly Pulitzer’s vision doesn’t precisely line up with my TBD summer 2015 lewk (Birkenstocks and smock dresses, probs), I was delighted to know that I would at least have the option of trying on a flamingo-print short set, or whatever. My dreams of rubbing shoulders with Mitzi and Bun-Bun at the club in Palm Springs have been dashed, though, because the plus-sizes will only be sold online. That’s fucked up.

Vogue has declared Uggs “back,” which leaves me to wonder: did they ever go away? Were they ever truly in to begin with or were they always just in a niche league of their own? “The Return Of The Ugg Boot” on British Vogue‘s blog asks, “In the last month, how many times have you declined to step into your razzle-dazzle heels and opted for a pair of Uggs instead? Once? Twice?” The answer is zero times, Vogue, but I haven’t been wearing razzle-dazzle heels too often lately either, so maybe I’m the wrong person to answer that question. Vogue continues to inform us in the post that we peasants at last have permission from the fashion kingdom to wear the boots once again, but only if we full a “five-rule definitive style code” when doing so. Whoever wears Uggs in 2015, aside from normcore enthusiasts and It Girls, does so because A) they rightly prioritize comfort in their lives or B) they are badass fashion bosses who do whatever they want, Anna Wintour be damned, so I’m not really sure who Vogue thinks they’re giving sartorial permission to at this point. Either way, I’m not sure whether their comeback is supposed to make me happy or sad, because while they really are a little bit fugly, they’re also the comfiest and loveliest gift you can possibly give your feet on a winter morning. Thoughts? [WhoWhatWear; British Vogue]

It only took 13 years, but I finally feel like I understand how to dress cute and comfortably for the face-numbingly cold East Coast winter. I have a couple truly warm coats, a pile of snuggly sweaters that don’t make my neck break out in hives and finally understand why the person who invented ear muffs deserves a medal. But I am still at a loss as to what shoes to wear on those days where it’s snowy and freezing out and my outfit-matching pumps are realllllly not ideal for sidestepping massive piles of dog piss-stained slush. Snow boots are the answer, but they’re so ugly, right? Well, most are, but not all, especially if you’re open to adding a certain rugged twist to your overall aesthetic. Here are 10 pairs of bad weather boots that you won’t be pissed at for ruining your cute outfit.
C. Wonder, preppy haven of all things monogrammed and colorful, is closing its stores. The line was seemingly created as a copycat revenge project against C. Wonder owner Chris Burch’s ex-wife, designer Tory Burch, which makes me feel slightly less sad about missing out on the store’s semi-gaudy goodies. Still, I can’t help but mourn the loss of some of C. Wonder’s better designs. Here are some of the line’s cutest offerings, many of which are on sale, to snatch up while you still have the chance!
Lilly Pulitzer is teaming up for a collaboration with Target! The collection will include 250 pieces ranging from $2 to $150 and will feature plus sizes, which some of Target’s past collaborations had left out. For a seemingly innocuous line of bright-colored dresses, Lilly is oddly powerful in its ability to polarize fashion lovers. The brand is gaudy as hell to some and a lovely summer staple to others. Whether you love it or hate it, the collection will launch April 19, just in time to buy yourself some summer brights! [College Candy] [Image via Instagram]
