“Miss Anorexic” Tee Available In Large And XL

Is a “Miss Anorexic” T-shirt for juniors any less tasteless because it’s only available in sizes large and extra large? Ummmm, no. We’re not sure if extra small, small, and medium sold out, or if the manufacturers of the Little Losers T-shirts only made “Miss Anorexic” tees in the largest sizes on purpose. But who cares, ’cause joking about an eating disorder is lame.

Other shirts on TeeShirtsRock.com are slightly less tasteless. Perhaps you have a “Miss Bitch,” “Miss Boobjob,” or “Miss Slut” in your life? Mother’s Day gift, ladies! Keep reading »

Tried & Tested: The Best Cotton Tee On The Market

Jeans always get front and center when it comes to icons of American style. But everyone knows the silent star is really the T-shirt. Where would James Dean, Marlon Brando, or Michael Jackson have been without the super simple, super sexy white t-shirt? There are several elements that elevate the standard tee: color, graphics, fit and, most importantly, fabric. The latter is what makes Market tees so amazing. The recently debuted line believes in simplicity. So they limit their collection to a variety of plain, cotton t-shirts that still manage to be infinitely comfortable and sexy. Drew Barrymore, Blake Lively and Lindsay Lohan have all been snapped while wearing them. What drives them to the brand is what will make you fall in love, too: buttery fabrics, rainbow colors, and the perfect fit. We got to test-run these tees and got more compliments than we can count. They’re perfect paired with jeans and sneakers or a chic mini-skirt and heels — and the prices are equally attractive at $24 to $35. Check out their latest styles and colors and find out where to buy online. Keep reading »

Amber Valletta Rocks Low End Clothes In High Fashion Shoot

This is what we are talking about: high fashion looks we can actually afford on a low budget. For their September 2009 issue, V Magazine featured super model turned actress Amber Valletta in a nine page spread titled, “Amber’s Next Act.” The Arizona born beauty is starring in the upcoming sci-fi flick, Gamer with Gerard Butler. Maybe to contrast with what will likely be a very techy film, the stylist Clare Richardson, gave Valletta a very simple, striped down (literally), and bare look. With the exception of a black poufy Dolce & Gabbana, just about every other outfit in the shoot was from Levi’s, H&M, Gap and Armani Exchange.

Claire Danes Revamps For BlackBook September Cover

Here’s a peek at Claire Danes’ risqué cover for September’s BlackBook. Not since “Romeo and Juliet” have we been this impressed with Danes. She’ll always be thought of as the innocent and innocuous type thanks to growing up as the star of “My So-Called Life.” Maybe she wanted to do something a bit more sexy and dangerous, considering she’s about to give up single life with her marriage to Hugh Dancy next month. So for once, Claire Danes plays the bitch in a super-hot photo shoot featuring dominatrix-like boots and jackets as well as busty blazers. The best shot: Danes in bold fishnets overlooking the Manhattan landscape. Check out a few more images after the jump! [BlackBook] Keep reading »

Dude, Your Flexibility Is Freaking Me Out

Yeah, uh, I don’t know. This guy? He’s kind of freaking me out. He’s so … flexible. This vintage ad for Cricketeer suits is intended to show that this — ahem — polyester suit will “give you almost as much freedom as [your] birthday suit,” but I walk away from it with nothing but the heebie-jeebies. I guess that’s what you get for $100. And why are his hands placed, like, there? Is he warding off some sort of an attack, or did they not want to feature his butt so prominently in this ad? I remain confused. Hopefully, men who can turn themselves into human pretzels will engage in these types of activities in the bedroom, not the boardroom. [Jezebel] Keep reading »

Should Cage Leggings Be Sent To Fashion Prison?

Every time I think we’ve seen it all in terms of edgy leggings and hosiery, some designer proves me wrong. Behold caged leggings! Michelle at Kingdom of Style tested out James Lillis’ design and looks pretty rad, but something tells me walking in these bad boys is kind of awkward, especially if your thighs (normally) touch a bit. Michelle also turned me on to a new blog to peruse on those days when I have nutty legwear on the brain — Too Many Tights! Bookmark it. [Kingdom Of Style] Keep reading »

Wear Your Favorite Summer Pieces Through Fall!

If it were up to me, I would wear a totally fashionable, totally new outfit everyday. I would have a pair of hot heels or cute flats for everyday of the year and I would have at least one brand new, lust-worthy piece on every time I changed outfits. Alas, we can’t all be a tall, rich, bottle-blonde socialite, but we can still look fashionable everyday! Saturated colors, higher hems and edgy details like zippers, chains and asymmetry are still going to be hot in the Fall season. That’s good news for those of us that have a budget and are actually going to try and follow it this time! Instead of going out to buy a whole new wardrobe to suit the cooler weather and blow our meager savings account at the same time, a few basic and affordable pieces are all that’s needed to add a little warmth into our favorite summer ensembles! Add a pair of funky leggings to a mini-skirt for an uber-trendy Fall look, or keep it classic with a cardigan and some great boots that go along with that sundress you wore all summer! Leggings, boots, sweaters, tights… the possibilities are endless! Check out the slideshow for more ideas on versatile basics to help transition your favorite summer looks into the coming season.

RE COLLECTION Is A Chic Designer Label, Recollections Victorian Wear Is Not

The other day while browsing in Barneys, I came across a gorgeous cardigan by a company called RE COLLECTION. With an unusual tuxedo lapel, the piece was so interesting that I decided to take note of the label and research it further for a possible Frisky post. Yet, when I sat down to Google “recollection clothing,” the first thing that popped up was decidedly not the fancy label, but this, “Recollections: Historic, Romantic Clothing Reminiscent of Centuries Past.” And here’s why you’ll love it.
