Finally TOMS Shoes We Would Wear

Honestly, the heartwarming charity angle aside, there was something about TOMS shoes that looked decidedly … un-chic. Hence, while we’ve admired the shoes from afar, we’ve never seen a pair we wanted to sport around town. Until now. Behold: TOMS with laces, formally known as the Cordones. It’s a total departure from the traditional TOMS shoe, and while some might say it takes away all the charm, we disagree. (And we think dudes who had problems walking around in TOMS’ signature espadrilles are with us on this one.) They’re available now for between $69 and $78. Find them wherever TOMS are sold or online.

Crave: Danielle Stevens Jewelry (Win It!)

Danielle Stevens stumbled on a style secret while playing in her mom’s closet as a child: “Whether it’s a well-crafted piece of costume jewelry or one with diamonds and other fine gems, a girl needs a beautiful accessory.” Luckily for us, this didn’t mean a lifetime of collecting jewels from other designers, but creating a collection of her own. After months of making beaded jewelry to share with friends and family, Stevens decided to make her hobby official and launched her own line. Since 2002, DSJ , as she and her team call it, has grown at a slow and steady pace. Everyday fashionistas built up the buzz, and before long, celebs, like Drew Barrymore, have been snapped wearing her pieces. Stevens produces four collections each year and they range from bold, chunky, and colorful necklaces to cute cuffs and bracelets. Our favorite, though, is her line of legendary engraved necklaces. These pieces are simple, stylish and total classics. They average out at about $70 a piece and can be customized with your initials, name, favorite saying or symbol. [$24 and up, Danielle Stevens Jewelry]

We’re giving away five engraved Danielle Stevens Jewelry necklaces, but you have to work if you want one. The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, Sept. 4 through Thursday, Sept. 10 — will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Kate Moss Stars In Totally Hot New YSL Parisienne Commercial

Whoever says Kate Moss doesn’t have it going on anymore is dead wrong. This new ad for Yves Saint Laurent‘s Parisienne fragrance in which she stars is scorching hot. Frankly, I don’t even know what Kate is doing there, but it makes me want to buy a bottle immediately. [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »

The Fashion Peacekeepers: The Olsen Twins

Sometimes we feel like Us Weekly‘s “The Fashion Police” and other similar style critics can be a tad harsh. Also, they tend to have these really boring, conservative styles and we have to wonder what their real fashion credentials are. (Case in point: US Weekly‘s “Top Cops” include random comedian Stefanie Novik and Chet Cannon of “The Real World, Brooklyn.” When did they ever go to design school!?) The Fashion Peacekeepers are here to say, hey, can’t everyone’s styles just get along?

Oh you Fashion Police! You’re so … predictable. Of course they hate the way Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen look at this Opening Ceremony party in Japan and added them to their lineup, but we beg to differ. First off, let’s think of the context here: like it or not, Opening Ceremony is a hipper-than-thou avant-garde kind of boutique that’s all about experimental fashion. (If you don’t believe me watch this highly entertaining video starring Chloe Sevigny.) Second, this is Tokyo, where lots of young folk pop similar “fun” headgear on their heads the minute they step out of the office in the evening. Believe me they just earned like, 10 million cool points from their Japanese fan base. Thirdly, they just look downright cute. In summation, we’re pretty sure their inspiration was our recent post on how wearing animal ears is the hottest new thing. We called that shiz over a month ago. [E!] Keep reading »

Pierced Fashion Models—Sketch Or Trendsetting?

A Swedish fashion line called The Local Firm has released photographs of their Fall 2009 collection—and all of the models are seriously pierced up. I don’t know about you but I end up looking at the piercing way more than the actual clothes! Not that the images are all that shocking, really. Let’s be serious — there have been loads of actual “stunts” pulled throughout fashion history that are way more attention-grabbing. But for some reason, I was drawn to the photos. The piercings add another layer of interest—and they make me look a little longer than usual. It’s not just, “Oh, there’s Thom Browne’s or Tom Ford‘s newest collection or ad campaign,” but, “Hey there … get a load of this.” What about you? Check out more shots from the collection, after the jump! Keep reading »

Finally, Fashion For the Over-70 Crowd

Get a load of “Old Ladies Rebellion,” a clothing line launched by a 24-year-old specifically for, well….old ladies. And by old, Karst means old: seventy-plus. Her catwalk shows are only for the gray-haired and gorgeous. The elderly models elegantly sashay out in a series of knee length shift dresses. Karst keeps her signature silhouette interesting via bold graphics, quirky, clever spins tromp d’oeil (patterns that give the illusion of accessories or items that aren’t there), and ironic statements such as, “Let’s Begin With The End.” The designer has said she looks to older women, specifically her grandmother as muses. She cut her chops at the prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London and went on to gain experience on London’s Savile Row and in Paris. Now, with buzz building and the collection available to view online (you must reach out directly to Karst for purchase), it’s beyond clear that this is a rebellion worth joining. [HighSnobette]

The Bear Trap Necklace (For Girls Who Bite)

Feeling a little … bearish? If you’re looking to get your fierce on, nothing says, “Come here, no, wait, go away!” like a bear trap necklace. This fully functional (but we hope not too functional) pendant comes in oxidized black or polished sterling silver on a 25-inch chain and is, online store Lost at E Minor claims, a “bane to miniature bears everywhere.” It’s not cheap — $240 — but at least you know you’ll be safe if a miniature bear (or something bigger) tries to take a bite out of you.
