Everyone needs a perfect spring sandal. We’re talking about the type of shoe that’s basic and comfy enough to go with your usual outfits, but also has a little something extra for your fancier ones. That’s why we’re loving these Frances-Stud flats by Topshop. Pink leather, gold trim, and a braided design down the front make these cute kicks the type of noticeable item your friends will want the deets on. Our recommendation: “Ohhh … I got these in a little indie boutique somewhere, I forget where.” Otherwise, you’re going to have a case of copycats on your hands. (Or feet.)
All you need to know:
- The boys from Brooklyn band Yeasayer, shirtless in all their pale, undefined, nerdy, hipster glory.
- Mason jars of beer and tequila.
- Tattered shreds of denim constructed as a dress and/or apron (they’re still not sure): “This is the ugliest boho dress ever … We didn’t know what we were supposed to be doing.”
Check out the oh-so-artsy end result after the jump. [BlackBookMag.com] Keep reading »
Bracelets that benefit causes aren’t always the cutest, but jewelry designer Danielle Stevens is changing that with her Women for Women bracelet.

We’re happy to decorate our wrist for a good cause, especially when it helps out fellow females — and complements so many of our outfits. [$40, Danielle Stevens Jewelry] Keep reading »
Did April Fool’s Day come early or something? While it would have been nice to get that out of the way, this Gap store turned upside down is a prank of its own doing. As part of some quirky marketing for its new loyalty program called Sprize, a Vancouver branch was completely flipped around. (Those crazy Canadians!) The joke had bags with logos printed wrong-side up, window displays hanging from the ceilings, and even cars overturned outside. Now we get it … Sprize! We hung jeans on the ceiling! (Or something?) Check out some more pics after the jump. [PSFK] Keep reading »

According to The Senken, “The most widely read fashion daily in Japan” (I’d never heard of it either until I was handed a copy at Paris Fashion Week), the latest men’s fashion craze is a style called “OraOra,” which “comes from a sound Japanese people make when threatening someone.” As such, the general theme is a “bad boy” look, characterized by baggy black sweatsuits, gangsta body language, guido-like graphic embellishments, and sunglasses. Explains The Senken, “It is a tough guy’s look that says ‘don’t mess with me’ in head to toe black. The key words for this look are outlaw and tough guy.”
We’d normally just sigh and shake our heads in heavy disappointment at the continual lack of male fashion sense, but things get weird when we find out the supposed “reasons” this trend is taking off … Keep reading »
