For Designers Banking On Instant Gratification, “Seasons” May Become A Thing Of The Past

While we are die-hard Fashion Week fans, we’ve often griped about the frustration it brings because winter collections are shown in the summer, spring collections in the winter, and so on and so forth. With the way the fashion world is set up, it often feels like you can never see what you want and then buy it the same day—even when the season is off. We spend all this time immediately analyzing trends off the runway and devouring photos, but by the time the clothes are released, we’re on to the next thing and they almost seem like old news. According to New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn, we may begin to see fashion houses appealing more to the consumer’s instant gratification desire. Keep reading »

Earlier this month Frisky staffers shared the stories of the worst gifts we’ve ever received. When we read the horrifying/hilarious bad gift stories from our readers, we had to share those too. But what about the best gifts we’ve ever received? I’ll never forget one birthday when I was in high school–my brother secretly asked all my friends, family, and teachers to write notes to me and then stapled them all together in a little book titled “Why We Love Winona.” So awesome. A non-nostalgic close second? The thermal pants my aunt got me for Christmas last year. Whenever I wear them (pretty much every night) I feel cozy and grateful. Read on for a few stories from Frisky staffers, and please share your own best gift stories in the comments!

We included skinny cargo pants on our list of trends we hope die in 2011 for good reason, but these cargo leggings deserve a separate shout-out of their own. The combination of skintight spandex and lumpy thigh pockets not only creates a supremely unflattering silhouette, it also encourages the wearing of leggings as pants (another trend that made our list). For shame! [$176, Shopbop] Keep reading »
