Bluefly is known for selling designer clothes for a lot less, but sometimes the original price is so high that when it’s marked down by the online retailer we still can’t afford it. This doesn’t mean a recessionista can’t find anything at Bluefly. There are many designer articles of clothing, shoes, and accessories sold for less than $100. Check out our favorite cheap finds after the jump.
Beyonce turned a few heads when she released her album last year under her alter ego, Sasha Fierce. But Jennifer Lopez is turning even more heads now because people are asking themselves: “WTF, didn’t Bey do this last year?” J.Lo has released her new single, “Fresh Out the Oven,” under the alias “Lola,” which is Marc Anthony’s pet name for her. And Lola, similar to Sasha, has her own website too. The song really isn’t original; it’s Jennifer’s typical dance music. While I could do without rapper Pitbull on it, the song itself is kind of catchy and in step with most pop music out now — it’s Autotuned within an inch of its life, but J.Lo still sounds like she’s screeching when hitting the high notes. I’m happy Jennifer is working again because those twins of hers have to eat. Keep reading »
Rihanna is never a slouch when it comes to dressing up, but certain tabloids and bloggers have called her out for a multitude of fashion atrocities during Paris Fashion Week, where she attended several shows and generally caused a paparazzi meltdown wherever she went. We say she’s young, she’s beautiful, and she’s not afraid to take fashion risks. On top of all that, we Fashion Peacekeepers think she looks really kick-ass, even if she does go a little crazy at times, like with this fur muff she wore to Chanel. Click through for more of her best moments in the City of Light.
Two particular fall trends have been on our minds lately—menswear and colorful socks. Combining the two brilliantly is this pair of socks by Hansel From Basel, an L.A.-based indie hosiery company whose wares never fail to charm. At the top of these cozy knee-highs: a subtle, yet adorable tuxedo design that we’d love to see peeking out of some leather boots. [$25, Hansel From Basel, Chocosho.com] Keep reading »
Brooklynhipsters need more positive encouragement like I need a hole in the head. But I’m still thrilled my girl Ellen Page is writing a comedy for HBO about mankind’s most poser-ific social group. The “Juno” star, along with Alia Shawkat from “Arrested Development” and Sean Tillmann (aka musician Har Mar Superstar), will write and produce Stich N’ Bitch, a show about two hipster girls who move from Williamsburg, Brooklyn to Silver Lake, Los Angeles in a passionate quest to be artistes. According to The Hollywood Reporter, any of the three actors might star in the show but no roles have been cast yet. Oh, pretty please, Ellen? I can’t imagine anyone else I want to watch suffer for their art.
The dude version of hipster-y fashion mag Nylon has given teenybopper hottie Zac Efron their stamp of approval by putting him on the cover of the latest issue. I have been thinking for a while that Zac is Justin Timberlake 2.0 in that he is hot and multi-talented with Disney roots. Getting the cool stamp of approval — as Justin did from Pharrell and the Black Eyed Peas — is only further proof of that. OK, fine, I did watch “17 Again” this weekend. And I loved it. What of it?

This weekend, I will rip my closet apart with a seriousness usually reserved for much more, well, serious matters. Fall is here and I’ve still got sundresses and gingham skirts taking up precious space that is no longer rightfully theirs. This is not a time for simply shoving the unworn to the back of the closet. Rather, the seasonal clothing switch-out requires certain storage techniques that will keep last season’s clothes from getting dank and nasty until they’re needed again.
So stop simply shoving those dresses to the dusty back of your wardrobe and calling it a day. Here’s how to store your stuff properly: Keep reading »
After seeing “The September Issue,” Grace Coddington is kind of my new obsession. From her bright red curls to her adorable cats to her indescribable talent and determination as an editor of Vogue, she’s a true genius. So it really was only a matter of time before she was immortalized in some form. Cult tee company Deer Dana, creator of such brilliance as the Bruce Weber, Bill Cunningham, and Olivier Theyskens shirts, has now given Grace her very own T-shirt moment. And while the majority of the shirts are plain black and white, of course Grace’s flame red hair is appropriately completely accurate. They retail for $45, but now you’ll always have a bit of Grace in your life. [Deer Dana] Keep reading »
Kate Gosselin apparently thinks the whole world is her spawn. Well, not really, but she pretended she does on Jay Leno’s “JMZ” last night. The infamous mommy scolded three photogs who were taking pictures of her while she was loading groceries into her car. She made them stop, saying, “Hey, what did Mommy say? I asked you to stop taking pictures.” One paparazzo got a time-out and another was forced into a car seat and given a stuffed animal. The vid’s funny, but we knew it was fake as soon as we saw that Kate only bought three bags of groceries. Dude, she has eight kids! Keep reading »
I’m always on the lookout for ways I can annoy people a little less. Thankfully, the Marist Institute for Public Opinion (MIPO) has released a survey declaring the most annoying phrases in the English language—“you know” is second only to the word “whatever.” Eek, I say both! Thanks, Marist Institute, for making me watch it. Both are officially banned from my vocabulary. Now, if they could only take on these 25 words and phrases. [NY Post]
