The Ray-Ban Virtual Mirror

Ray-Ban has gone one step above the paper doll concept of online dressing rooms by offering a downloadable program that allows you to try on sunglasses in a virtual mirror. The image is taken straight from your web cam, and you can move with it, which is pretty genius considering that up until now we never would have risked buying sunglasses online. We can only imagine how this could evolve for the clothing industry. It would be beyond amazing if we could stand in front of our web cam in our undies and be able to virtually try on clothes!

The Only Sun Hat You Will Need This Summer

We all know UV rays (the fake kind or the real deal) don’t do us any favors. Wrinkles are one thing, but, more distressingly, sun exposure ups our chances of getting skin cancer. What you might not have considered is how important hats can be when it comes to preventing sun damage. Allow me to introduce your favorite new must-have summer accessory. This Lauren Moffatt-designed canvas hat with gold grommets is guaranteed to not only cover up your face but your neck too from those dastardly UV rays. Leave it to the creator of easy, summer dresses to come up with the perfect, face-saving solution—and it’s all for charity! One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to The Skin Cancer Foundation.

The Fashion Trend That’s Got To Stop: Too Many Fashion Weeks

Oh. Dear. God. Today’s news from the fashion cosmos? It’s the beginning of Fashion Week—in Baltimore. I wish I were kidding. Just like we had a few ideas about how to make the New York shows better, I have a thought on all of these regional fashion weeks: Stop putting them on! Sure, I sort of see the reasons behind a Los Angeles Fashion Week (well, I do if Lauren Conrad and every celeb “designer” in the world isn’t invited to show), a Sao Paulo Week (hot Brazilians in swimsuits!) and, of course, the less-commercial London one (Temperley, Jonathan Saunders, Matthew Williamson are all headed back to their geographic roots next season), but, come on, Baltimore Fashion Week? Apparently, twenty-eight designers have signed up. The week’s schedule: eco-friendly apparel on Monday (today), ready-to-wear on Tuesday, punk/gothic/dark on Wednesday, avant-garde on Thursday, and couture on Friday. On the other hand, if I were a fashion-obsessed Maryland resident, I’d be really stoked. Are you sick of too many Fashion Weeks or do you wish there was one in your city?

Sneak Peek: Anna Sheffield For Target

Another day, another Target collaboration. Here’s a first look at Anna Sheffield’s (of Bing Bang accessories fame) jewelry collection designed for the fashionable retail giant. In the mix: necklaces with vintage-inspired cameo pendants and insignia charms with Victorian touches like ribbon strands. The earrings recall Sheffield’s signature style with draped chains of mixed shapes and colors. The line is fairly affordable with a max price point of $79.99, although most pieces cost less than $40. You’ll have to wait until August 30 for the line to drop, but, after that, you’re sure to look bangin’.

Crave: Blue Q Gum

What better way to say all the inappropriate things that you’re thinking than with gum and mints? We love the “Does this gum make my butt look big” gum almost as much as the “Wanna hook up?” gum. They’re a great way to break the ice … or build some up. [$1.25, Blue Q] Keep reading »

Who Should Be On The Next Cover Of Love Magazine?

Newcomer Love magazine made a splash with its debut issue featuring a naked Beth Ditto on the cover. So, we’ve been eagerly anticipating the U.K.-style journal’s second issue, the theme of which is “New Blood: The Young & The Reckless.” The mag is already doing some clever pre-marketing by leaking possible covers. Some possibilities include Tavi (on the left), the 13-year-old fashion blogger who made our list as one of the “teens we’re most jealous of.” Alex (on the right) is an 18-year-old guitar teacher and bass player. (Uh, has anyone heard of this kid before?) Keep reading »

The Real Reason Victoria Beckham Quit The Armani Campaign

Sorry, kids. No more Beckham underwear porn for you. Victoria Beckham has decided against continuing the super steamy underwear campaign that she models with her husband for Armani. The reason? She says she wants to concentrate on her fashion career, as she’ll be presenting her line at NYC Fashion Week for the second time. However, could it be that she’s finally embracing her inner prude? Apparently, the Beckham children have asked some questions about their naked parents. Says David, “When they first saw them, they were like: ‘Daddy, why are you in your underwear so everyone can see?’”

That isn’t enough, though, to tear the soccer star away from the campaign—he’s keeping his contract. So, will Armani slate another sexy celeb couple to shoot the line? What Hollywood pair would measure up? Brad and Angie? Will and Jada? [Grazia, NowMagazine.co.uk] Keep reading »

But Can You Walk In Them?

Talk about a test-drive. Recent fashion seasons have seen some of the highest heels on record, from Nina Ricci’s heel-less high-heels to Rodarte’s towering Frankenstein boots. They may be beautiful, but can real women walk to work in the seven-inch stilettos that sent some supermodels spilling on the runways? The ladies at New York‘s style blog, The Cut, pulled together some of the craziest footwear and found out what happens when you try and sashay down the street in them. “They’re incredibly uncomfortable,” one good sport reports. And as for those Nina Ricci heels? Forget about it — unless you like walking on your tiptoes. [The Cut] Keep reading »
