Worth The Splurge: Willow’s Gold Lame Dress

It’s not easy to find the perfect cocktail dress that a) isn’t black and b) isn’t something you’ve seen a million times before. A guaranteed “wow” piece that will doubtless bring all eyes on you—this draped gold lamé dress by Willow. Three reasons to love: The material has a unique terracotta texture, the blousy sleeves will flatter your body, and the exposed back will bring some extra sexy. With a slight vintage vibe, the look we’re thinking of is Betty Draper goes downtown. [$680, Net-A-Porter.com] Keep reading »

Just Call Princess Grace Of Monaco “Rerun”

Celebrities these days would rather die than wear the same thing twice, leaving us mere mortals to wallow in desperation as we mix and match our wardrobe to make it appear to be larger than it actually is. But Grace Kelly‘s fashion choices are here to bring a sign of style relief. You see, along with the new exhibition, “Grace Kelly: Style Icon,” at the V&A Museum, it has come to everyone’s attention that the princess made a habit of re-wearing a few of her favorite pieces. In at least seven separate occasions, Grace publicly chose to repeat an outfit: a pink lace and silk taffeta dress for both the 1954 Cannes Film Festival and for a game of charades aboard the SS Constitution in 1956, as well as a green silk draped dress for the premiere of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window”, for the cover of Life magazine, and when she accepted her Oscar for “Country Girl.” That’s not all. She also donned an emerald green Givenchy wool dress for both a luncheon at the White House and while in Dublin, officially making it OK to repeat the exact same outfit. After all, if a princess can do it, we can too. [Telegraph] Keep reading »

Shocker: Victoria’s Secret Jeans Are Actually Kind Of Rad

Honestly, we expected jeans from Victoria’s Secret to be rhinestoned and distressed to the point of being so not permissible outside of areas like oh, say, the Jersey Shore. So we kind of wrote them off. As it turns out, they’re a decent fit, nice price and come in some pretty legit styles. Our bad. The ones at left are only $59.50, super simple and cute and come in three different lengths, meaning you maybe don’t have to feel like a midget as your tailor hems them three inches. Check out the site for more styles, avoid uber-distressing and save $15 if you spend $100 right now. Not a bad deal if you ask us. Keep reading »

“I’m Famous” Sunglasses

Every spring we feel an overwhelming desire to stock up on sunglasses. Never mind the already-extensive collections we have, the “But I’m protecting my eyes!” justifications begin and we’re totally beyond reason. This, as you can imagine, can become a rather expensive habit. These rather adorable, slightly over-the-top Fred Flare sunnies, however, quench our buying thirsts without maiming our credit card bills. Plus, everyone needs a pair of “I’m Famous” sunglasses!

Taste The Nostalgia: 1994 X-Girl Fashion Show


Here’s a reminder of the days when indie fashion was fun, lighthearted, and embracing of all different body types. Remember the label X-Girl? (If it was before your time, it’s a definite must-know just to increase your cultural cred.) The line of sporty tees and A-line dresses was developed in the ’90s by rock goddess and Sonic Youth lead singer Kim Gordon and designer Daisy von Furth. The two wanted to challenge the fashion industry’s elite outlook and high prices. Daisy’s explanation of X-Girl sums up the way we wish more people would think about fashion these days, being that, “We’re used to shopping in thrift stores … so for us to pay $60 for something, that’s like the most we’re ever going to pay … unless my mother’s paying.” Check out this footage from a 1994 X-Girl fashion show, set in the streets of Soho. We bet you’ll also recognize some fun, familiar faces in there, too. [YouTube] Keep reading »
