Buying Cheap Shoes Is (Almost) Always A Misstep

I’m totally guilty of becoming obsessed with three or four high-end fashion finds at a time. Recently it was a black Alexander Wang cocktail dress. The week before that it was a See by Chloe tulip skirt. Both of which I could never, ever afford. Luckily, I’m equally obsessed with trolling the internet to find cheaper versions of my objects of desire. One item I had been thinking about for quite a while was a pair of Repetto oxford lace-up heels, which would have cost me about $300. I almost considered shelling out for them, knowing the purchase was an everyday classic and the good brand would last and be comfortable.

Yet, the oxford heel is redundant in fashion today. So against my better judgment, I sneakily settled for a pair from H&M. I even went against some of my own advice, having blogged in July about how fakes and knock-offs really show off cheap details. Keep reading »

Heads Up: Marc Jacobs Bag Sale Starts At Noon!

You love the man, you love his work. But you can’t always afford the goods because The Man forces you to spend your money on more practical things like rent and food. Marc Jacobs handbags will never be recession-friendly, but Gilt Groupe is once again throwing us worker bees a break and selling a whole mess of ‘em at wholesale-ish prices. There’s the $695 Rad bag that will be on sale for $228 and the highly coveted Tess bag for $698 (down from $1750). Personally, I’ve got my eye on this Tote (above) which is $428 as opposed to $1195 and looks like it will fit a lot of my belongings, in case I really do spend my way out of my apartment. OK, let’s not even joke about stuff like that. Sale starts at noon ladies! Keep reading »

Mathematical Proof That Fashion Trends Really Are Cyclical

Show me a graph, flow chart, or anything that looks like it could have come from my math textbook in high school and I’m lost. Numbers and equations are simply not my thing. But transition the hard facts into fashion trends and you’ve got my attention … Keep reading »

Fab Finds In A Fashion Editor’s Closet



Sasha Charnin Morrison keeps a slightly lower profile than that other fashion editor the world is getting to know better, Anna Wintour. But she is a Major-with-a-capital-M player, having worked at all the top glossies like Elle, Harper’s Bazaar and Allure, and she is now the Fashion Director at US Weekly. She’s also really hilarious and defies the stereotype her species is known for by being a total rock star in the sweetheart department. She let another lovable fashionista, Abby Gardner from, ahem, Fashionista.com, in to see her closet and let’s just say Sasha’s got a bag collection that would make Kimora Lee jelso. Speaking of envy, watch for the custom Steven Sprouse dress that turned Kate Moss green with the stuff. [Fashionista] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Emma Watson Wages A War With Her Skirt

Unlike some young starlets who seem to go out of their way to rack up paparazzi crotch shots, Emma Watson is determined to make sure she does not become another tabloid casualty. Keep on keepin’ it classy Emma! Still, you’d think Burberry would want to make sure their campaign star’s dress fit properly. [London, 9/22/09] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Katy Perry’s Stylist Feels Her Up On Set

The paparazzi were on hand to snap away behind-the-scenes as Katy Perry shot a rather wet-looking new video yesterday in LA. (They’re so helpful, those guys.) But it was Katy’s stylist who really went out of his way to assist when he lent not one, but two hands to make sure his client and her girls were looking their best. This may seem extreme, but there are lots of male fashion stylists out there and we’re pretty sure plenty of their mitts have been in even more intimate places than this. In fact, we shudder to think how much work Gaga‘s dresser has cut out for herself. Or himself. Haha, get it? (Uh, maybe not, never mind.) [TMZ] Keep reading »

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: London Sep. 22nd 2009

“Thou shall not mix plaids” sounds like it could be the first Commandment in the Fashion Bible. But what would a rule be without an exception? Kensie wears the perfect plaid combination with a Baby Phat coat and bright, cheerful scarf. The unexpected pairing is a totally stylish success. Maybe we should revisit some other fashion rules. Acid-washed jeans, anyone? Keep reading »

RIP: My Former Self And The Shoes She Wore

I used to pride myself on my unsurpassed skill when it came to walking in ridiculously high heels. None of that wobbling around and tripping all over myself business. So when I had ankle surgery last December, the recovery period was a bitch. Aside from the almost two months on crutches, there have also been the six virtually heel-less months since. I can whip out my lower ones for a couple hours at this point, but beyond that my leg starts giving out spontaneously, sending me into an incredibly attractive floor-ward dive. People love it.
