Overalls: The Trend That’s About To Be All Over?

The last time overalls were cool, it was when we were 8 years old, and the Gap was making a standard denim style. Apparently they’re back, both in high-fashion labels (Chloé, Ralph Lauren, Proenza Schouler, and Cavalli, to name a few) and in mass markets. How do we know this trend is really happening? The New York Times has observed a renaissance in overalls brought about by the 20-somethings of Williamsburg, Brooklyn: “A man sported the look (ironic? postironic?) with a lion-worthy Afro, white T-shirt and Ray-Bans; a young woman on an antique Schwinn wore her version rolled up.” Did that read like a joke to you? Because we laughed out loud. Keep reading »

Freak Out: Foot Undies Are A Real Thing

We never wanted to live in a world where someone would approve the production of a product called “Thongz FootUndeez.” And yet here we are surrounded by — we kid you not — underwear for our feet. I know what you’re thinking: “Wait, isn’t that sort of what socks are?” Nay, fair friends, apparently socks weren’t erotic enough for Capezio, makers of mini underwear-shaped things intended to be worn on the toe/foot area. Why is this happening? Can you imagine a situation in which that’s something you’d actually want? A simple, nude contraption for dancers makes some amount of sense, but who decided that a purple leopard toe thong option needed to be brought into the world? This makes us really, really sad.

Crew clothes she wants, and somehow manages to get home by 6:30 p.m. every evening. Watch a day in her life above, but be prepared to feel some serious pangs of jealousy. [Oprah] Keep reading »

Lane Bryant Says ABC Is Fat-O-Phobic


Apparently ABC has a problem with hot ladies in their undies. Or so says plus-sized lingerie purveyor Lane Bryant in their claim that the network tried to shut out their plus-sized lingerie commercial. ABC “demanded excessive re-edits and rebuffed it three times before relenting to air it during the final 10 minutes of ‘American Idol,’ but only after we threatened to pull the ad buy,” blogged the company in a bit of well-placed outrage. We watched the commercial (above) and don’t get what the problem is. Yeah, she’s crazy hot and half naked, but ABC routinely airs Victoria’s Secret commercials featuring busty teenagers prancing about in front of fans; this looks tame by comparison. Thoughts?

How To Wear Hoop Earrings Without Looking Skanky

Kerry Washington looks gorgeous in her hoop earrings, and this mighty appearance is being heralded as the return of the massive ear accessory (which we’ll kind of take with a grain of salt).
