What’s Up With These $400 J.Crew Glasses?

Hey, hey, hey, J.Crew, since when did you start slapping Barneys price tags on your previously affordable goods? While we still adore you, we got a bit of a shock yesterday while doing some online window shopping on your site when we saw these cute sunglasses for … $395? Um, what? The deal—they’re part of a special collection from the famous eyewear brand A. R. Trapp, a “family-owned-and-operated company … known for its elegant, timeless designs and expert dedication to the craft—many clients have been wearing the same A.R. Trapp styles for decades (Spike Lee and famed architect Philip Johnson have counted among them).”

The vintage vibe on these thick-framed specs is pretty neat, but neat enough to drop $400 on? Hmm … [J.Crew] Keep reading »

In Numbers: Lindsay Lohan’s 6126 Expansion

Lindsay Lohan likes to play the numbers game, and has given us some new figures to try on: Her leggings line, 6126, is set to expand drastically. The fall collection of dresses, leather jackets, ready-to-wear (and yes, leggings), will weigh in at 280 pieces. As for the prices, the range is also quite vast, the lowest item at $60, and the highest topping out at $1,000. That sure sounds like a lot of variety … which leads us to believe that Lindsay didn’t actually create a thing. Still, we’ll be interested to see the disputed designs when they hit the high-end retailers! [FashionIndie.com] Keep reading »

Worth The (Small) Splurge: Ann Taylor Flats

Half the reason I ordered Ann Taylor‘s “Perfect Flats” was a spiteful attempt to find a way in which they are not, in fact, “Perfect.” But I needed new black flats and didn’t want to spend $500 to replace my Lanvin regulars as they became increasingly less wearable, though I assumed the $98 Ann Taylor substitutes would be nothing but a short-lived band-aid on the problem. As it turns out, I was wrong. Not only do they look good — far better, in fact, than their picture — the leather is soft, the sole padded and the toe cleavage perfectly balanced. If this is what Ann Taylor’s new designer and sleeker approach is going to look like all the time, consider us interested. [$98, Ann Taylor] Keep reading »

Can Maxi Skirts Ever Work For Short Women?

As an individual who is faced with the dilemma of being vertically challenged — I’m super short, 5’1″ to be exact — certain fashion trends just don’t work for me. Pants are pretty much impossible and even if I liked the harem style, I can totally forget about ever looking good in them. In fact, for months I was convinced that I shouldn’t even try to make a maxi dress work because I would just end up looking like a child covered in piles of fabric. Eventually, desperation mixed with jealousy and a quick shopping trip lead to my first maxi dress purchase last summer. Now I’m in love and believe I have mastered the art of maxi dresses for shorties, though I’d hardly say that I’m willing to venture into the world of harem pants. Then, my world was rocked when I saw the Olsen twins strutting around town in maxi skirts! Keep reading »
