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]

New In-Store Exhibit Explains Where Chanel Bags Come From

Chanel might be out of your price range right now, but while saving for your very first 2.55 purse, here’s an exhibit to quench your quilted double-C desire. Beginning on May 16, the design house will give shoppers, including us wannabe Chanel owners, the inside scoop on what goes into making its famous bags. Stop by the 57th Street flagship store in NYC for “The Secrets of the Chanel Handbag” and learn all about the bag of your dreams, from the time of Coco to Karl’s present-day designs. This is no ordinary history lesson though, because the exhibit shares a few of the special details about the bag’s construction and its evolution over the years. If nothing else, it’s a chance to drool over gorgeous bags — and you’ll surely appreciate the price tag way more after your visit. [WWD] Keep reading »

Karl Lagerfeld’s Shrine To Barbie And Ken

Karl Lagerfeld’s studio is featured in The Selby Is In Your Place, and there’s a preview of the space on TheSelby.com. When we first saw this photo, we thought, “Does Karl have a seriously weird Chace Crawford and Barbie obsession?” But then we realized it was a picture of Chanel model/muse Baptiste Giabiconi and a bunch of Barbies, which was part of Karl’s “Barbie and Ken” exhibit at Colette last March. But it’s still a little scary. [The Selby] Keep reading »

NYU Students Dream Up Your Next Shopping Addiction

Watch out, Gilt Groupe. There’s a new sample sale site launching and fashion lovers will be just a teensy bit obsessed with it for one major reason. Instead of offering last season’s wares like so many discount stores and sites, ToVieFor plans to sell designer items from the current season’s collections. Two students at New York University’s Stern School of Business, Melanie Moore and Susanne Greenfield, created the website and were just awarded $75,000 in prize money for their invention, though you’ll have to wait until summer for the site to launch. You can expect sales prices 40 to 70 percent off current season handbags and accessories from brands like Ferragamo, Louis Vuitton, and Marc Jacobs. But here’s the catch: In order to place a bid, users are required to pay between $1 to $5 for each session (the site combines members-only and dutch-auction sale styles). But what’s a dollar when you’re saving on designer goods that aren’t sooo last season? [ToVieFor via NY Times] Keep reading »
