Afford Those Alexander Wang Studs!

You’ve seen one of the Olsen twins toting around the $800+ Alexander Wang Coco Mini leather bag with a bottom full of of studs and if you’re anything like me, you were filled with envy at the sight. I’ve swooned over its beauty and contemplated ways to save money — forgo lunch, pick up babysitting jobs instead of going out on the weekends, ask for my Christmas and birthday presents for the next few years all in one — but as of yet, the studded gem has yet to enter into my collection. Now it looks like I have another option. Alexander Wang created a similar version of the Coco Mini in tote shape for his Alexander Wang x Opening Ceremony collaboration. Just like his expensive handbag, the bottom of the tote is full of studs in either silver or gold, but you’ll save a ton of money on this option. Because the best part is that the tote retails for $125, which is slightly more affordable. [Racked] Keep reading »

Lady Gaga Wears Abercrombie Hoodie, Loves It

Wow, just wow. The most famous poster child for avant-garde fashion ever was spotted wearing an Abercrombie and Fitch hoodie back in the day. And she’s even smiling about it. We’re in shock here. [True Slant] Keep reading »

How Much Should A Wedding Dress Cost, Anyway?

And so it begins. I promised myself I wouldn’t fall into the usual trappings of being engaged, such as posting pictures of my ring on Facebook and devoting hours each day to The Dress Search. And so far, I’ve kept my cool, for the most part anyway. Still, that hasn’t stopped me from Googling “design your own wedding dress” and clicking on the bridal section at Net-a-Porter every now and then. (I was there to look at some sandals, I swear!) The latter departure led me to this little Lanvin number, which retails for a cool $10,860. Wait, I’m sorry, what was that? Correct — over 10K for a dress you wear once. Not that I’m shocked or anything. It’s Lanvin, not Forever 21. (Do they do bridal? Must check.) But it did get me wondering about how much women are actually willing to spend on these things.

Snake Ear Wrap: Creepy Or Chic?

I normally stick to simple hoops or tiny stud earrings, so it’s a little odd that I’m so drawn to this elaborate snake earring. I just can’t help loving how it winds around, going through a regular hole and wrapping itself up the ear. What would you pair with it in your other ear? Or would you buy two and wear both at once?

Boyfriend Present: $53 McQueen Man Panties

Before his death last month, designer Alexander McQueen was working on a line of men’s underwear or, as we’ll refer to them, manties. We feel the creations deserve a name of their own, not just because their creator was an awesome man, but also because they’re a bit too snazzy to just be referred to as boxers or briefs. If you can’t imagine your boyfriend disrobing to reveal Hanes ever again, fear not. You can scoop up these super-tight beauties for the paltry price of about $53 each! McQueen manties not enough for your man? You’re also mere weeks away from complementary $555 silk pajamas, too. We’ll assume the PJs come with a Vespa. [The Cut] Keep reading »

French Elle Goes Plus-Sized

French women may be known for their ability to guzzle wine and feast on cheese and not gain an ounce, but the reality is they come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. (French chicks, they’re just like us!) The editors of French Elle have decided to jump on the normal- and plus-sized models bandwagon and tomorrow will launch “Special Rondes,” starring model Tara Lynn. Another look, after the jump!
