Do Not Want: Thakoon Twisted Layered Leggings

Look, I know we’re always looking for new pantsventions (that’s pants inventions) to cover the lower halves of our bodies, but really, this is just not right. Thakoon is a bonafide genius when it comes to structured style, but we’ll definitely be skipping these “layered” leggings, which are just a $378 way to look like a total schlub. I guarantee, I can recreate the Thakoon look with a couple of off-the-rack items from my local Kmart, but no one would ever mistake it for high-fashion. But if you’ve got an extra $400 to spare, by all means, have at ‘em. [$378, Shopbop] Keep reading »

Charlie Sheen Officially Fired By CBS

Charlie Sheen may think he’s “winning,” but one thing he’s certainly lost is his contract with “Two and a Half Men.” CBS and Warner Bros. Television have announced that they have officially fired the trouble actor from the hit TV show, which went on hiatus for the rest of the season following Sheen’s incredibly public meltdown. That meltdown shows no signs of stopping and CBS execs have clearly tired of Sheen’s shenanigans. So, how long before the public tires as well? Though Sheen reached two million followers on Twitter less than a week after joining the social networking site, there are already signs that the public is getting bored, perhaps because the media has been absolutely saturated with 24/7 Sheen coverage. The Village Voice has declared this Friday to be “Unfollow Charlie Sheen On Twitter Day.” Keep reading »

Cheeky misunderstandings!),but it also has some absolutely divine clothes. Of course, it’s nearly impossible to find anything nearly as glorious as the reform-style gowns worn by Gwynnie and the gang, but we figured we could try to evoke the look with some artfully adorned collared shirts. Love them! After the jump, some of our favorites…
