Crave: Rain Pumps Keep You High And Dry

Here on the East Coast, we’ve been experiencing a bit of a bummer summer: rain when you least expect it and, well, more rain. And when it’s hot and pouring, the last thing we want to do is stick our feet into stuffy Wellies, not to mention lug them to work. Enter the City Slipper by SWIMS, a silicon cover made to fit high heels. Made for days like today (beautiful, sunny morning; torrential afternoon), the galoshes can fit almost any pair of pumps, and even have soles made to handle wet weather (as a touch of added cuteness, the bottoms are imprinted with maps of international cities). For the ladies who prefer flat soles, there’s also an adorable ballerina model that comes in a bunch of colors including a girly bubble gum pink or a classic yellow. You might just start praying for rain. But please don’t. On the other hand, while these are kind of genius in some ways, are they too ugly (not to mention far too expensive) to wear, even when it’s pouring out? [$88.38 and up, Swimstore.com]

Crave: Gap Shrunken Schoolboy Blazer

Blazers are perfect for any season, and this lovely, tailored one is no exception. Pair it with jeans, dresses, skirts – whatever the occasion calls for! The sleeves can be rolled up for a laid-back look or kept long for a sleeker one. The price tag is smaller than that of any other stylish schoolboy blazer we’ve come across, so you don’t need to feel guilty about making this (so worth it) purchase. Plus, with its versatility, we can promise you this jacket won’t be hiding in the back of your closet. You know you want one. [$98, Gap] Keep reading »

Topshop Goes Goth: Do We Like?

It’s Halloween in July, apparently. “Horror Girl” is a new, mostly black, mostly lacy collection at Topshop, the U.K. (and now U.S.) clothing store. They’ve got a white vest with “Be Afraid” across the front, a blazer with the words “Vampire Kiss” written in blood-red on the inside lining, and burgundy, five-inch studded platform heels fit for a hooker’s rise from the dead. If only their quasi-goth looks were apropos of the “Twilight: New Moon” release, like at Nordstrom, but the flick’s not out until November. Maybe Topshop’s simply trying to steal customers from Hot Topic? [Topshop Horror Girl Collection] Keep reading »

Estelle And Rachel Roy Team Up For Jewelry Line

Singer Estelle will collaborate on a jewelry line with fashion designer Rachel Roy, whose clothing is demure and beautiful yet also alluring. Roy announced the deal via Twitter saying, “I am excited to work with @EstelleDarlings on a jewelry collection, which will debut in Spring 2010.” No details are available yet because the collection is still in its early development stages, says Roy’s spokesperson. We’re curious how the duo will merge Estelle’s high-glam, in-your-face style with Roy’s mysterious and refined aesthetic. But if you can’t have fun with your jewelry and accessories, then what’s the point of getting dressed? Estelle will be on hand to host the launch party for Roy’s pop-up shop, which opens Sept. 10, during New York Fashion Week. (You may remember that Estelle has honed her design skills during her collaborations with shoe designer Jonathan Kelsey and H&M.) Although Roy’s marriage to Damon Dash has failed, this collabo and the launch of Rachel Rachel Roy at Macy’s in August are spelling success for her brand. [WWD via Sassy Bella] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Does Anyone Need Stirrup Socks?

Back when I was five years old, stirrup pants were my very favorite thing to wear in the world. Then, in middle school, I totally got on the knee socks bandwagon. Apparently VPL has combined the two items that covered my legs in years past to create a combination stirrup-legwarmer-sock thing, which they call “Knee Lows Socks.” I don’t understand these ribbed stirrup socks. Does the stirrup even have a purpose? And why, oh, why do these suckers cost $95? I could make a pair by cutting the feet off some knee-highs and adding elastic from a craft store, but I’m not going to because why would I want my calves to be kept warm but not my feet or thighs?

The Rumor Mill: Topshop To Open In Brooklyn Next Year?!

Swirling, unsubstantiated rumor has it that British mega-brand and recent New York immigrant TopShop–yes, the place to whence our collective wages go–will be setting up shop in Brooklyn next year. Keep reading »

The Rumor Mill: More Topshops In The New York Area!?

Swirling, unsubstantiated rumor has it that British mega-brand and recent New York immigrant Topshop–yes, the place to whence our collective wages go–will be setting up shop in Brooklyn next year. While we’re all excited for the Brooklynites who’d no longer have to cross the bridge for Topshop’s particular brand of decently-priced designer knockoffs inspired pieces, there are a few other places we’d rather see the chain open. Like, in lots of other cities across the nation. And right next door to our offices. Or, you know, in the same building. Who do we talk to about setting that up? [Papier Blog] Keep reading »

Is The New Knee Pad Trend For You?

Trend de la Creme reports: “It’s Official: Knee-Centric Leggings Are a Trend.” Lindsay Lohan created a pair last year, and now they’re everywhere, from Ann-Sofie Back to Marc Jacobs to Henrik Vibskov. So, what’s the reason? Why would girls want to wear knee pads? It’s hard not to think of one thing. For, you know, padded protection while servicing their male friends. Or, I guess, if a girl were to slip and fall on her way to work, these would be a life-saver. But the Monica Lewinsky idea is so much more interesting. Don’t you think?
