Fashion’s Night Out Travels Around The World

Unless you live in New York City, you probably didn’t care much about last September’s Fashion’s Night Out. This year, however, Anna Wintour‘s pet project is going global. From Sept. 7, when the event begins in France, to Sept. 16, when it ends in Greece and Turkey, 16 countries will participate in the shopping extravaganza, with the various countries’ editions of Vogue spearheading the events. Retailers in the United States that are outside NYC can sign up to participate, too. And all of this, from the largest public fashion show, held in NYC on Sept. 7, to whatever crazy stunts retailers dream up, could make it into the CBS special that’s being made about the event, the goal of which is “to celebrate and support the fashion and retail industries with full-price shopping.” [Fashion's Night Out]

UPDATE: Fashion’s Night Out was actually global last year, too, but this year’s event has three additional countries participating. With so much focus on NYC’s festivities (we do live in the Big Apple, after all), we had no idea! Keep reading »

Can You Believe This Is Juicy Couture?

With a recent infusion of fashion credibility in the form of Erin Fetherston, the designer well-known for her ethereal princess designs and floaty dresses, Juicy Couture is working to make a new name for itself and get way from tired sweatsuits. Erin’s very first creation had a major debut on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala. Apparently, after the announcement of her new position as guest designer and creative consultant, Erin fashioned a “Bespoke Juicy Couture” caftan out of the exact same fabric as those well-known velour jumpsuits. Her dress turned out really well given the material and the connotations that go along with it, proving that a good designer can make anything look fashionable. We have to admit, this could be a brand new start for Juicy Couture. [Racked via Styleite] Keep reading »

Would You Wear These Love Sandals?

We’re a bit confused after seeing these Love shoes on British Elle‘s list of favorite summer sandals. We’re all for being affectionate, but these sandals feel just a tad forced, don’t you think? We remain totally unconvinced that they deserve to be called awesome. In fact, we wouldn’t wear them if they were $60 instead of $600. What about you? Do you love or hate these Georgina Goodman Love sandals? [$600, Matches] Keep reading »

The KK Cup Replaces The K Cup As The Biggest Bra Size On High Street

As a sometimes-proud member of the itty bitty titty committee, it’s really difficult for me to imagine needing a K cup bra, let alone a KK cup. I’m in the minority, however, as the average size of women’s breasts has increased over the years, as a result of weight gain, cosmetic surgery, and other unknown factors. With an increase in bust size comes demand for correct support. British retail chain Debenhams is answering the call with the help of luxury brand Panache, which makes the Harmony Bra. Debenhams makes a great profit from its range of bra sizes available in D cup and above, so it makes sense that the shop would decide to carry the KK cup Harmony Bra at its Oxford Street location in London. This bra, which has been nicknamed “wind socks” for its 20-inch cups, is available in black, white, and nude for £25 (about $38), which sounds like a steal since bras this size were previously only available through special order. Unfortunately, women in the U.S. who need this size will either have to travel to London or wait till they cross the pond, because all the KK bras are sold out online.

Bridesmaid Shoes That Won’t Break The Bank

If you’re in a friend’s wedding, be prepared to spend big bucks, because you’ll have to buy everything from a plane ticket to your bridesmaid dress. And if the bride wants all her ladies in waiting to wear matching shoes, that’s another hundred bucks out the window. Hopefully you can convince her to go with a less expensive footwear option, like this ridiculously good-looking pair from Payless. That’s right, Payless. Lela Rose hand-picked 15 dyeable styles (and 64 custom colors) for the retailer’s Unforgettable Moments collection, and they all cost under $50, including the dye job and shipping. The Nathalie (pictured) is so cute we’d buy them even if we didn’t have to. [$44.99, Unforgettable Moments]
