This is why people think fashion is stupid. Because designers like Karl Lagerfeld, who seriously could give two shits about women’s rights, co-opts the feminist movement as some sort of aesthetic inspiration for his fashion mood board and then parades an array of mostly white, skinny models down the runway holding ridiculous signs like “Free Freedom,” “We Can Match The Machos,” “Be Your Own Stylist,” “Boys Should Get Pregnant Too” and “Tweed Is Better Than Tweet.” I get the tenuous connection between the designs for his Spring 2015 collection, which was basically his take on fashion for working women, and the second wave feminist movement, I GUESS, but come on. This is so dumb it hurts my eyes to look at.

Even though the real three-boobed woman, Jasmine Tridevil, turned out to be a hoax, we can still dream of the day when ladies can frolic around with as many breasts as they want, free of judgement. Check out the DIY tutorial here, and, while you’re at it, you might as well sing your third boob a love song. Before you know it, you’ll be the breast dressed … er, best dressed … at the costume party.
Whether you realize it or not, your clothes tell the story of “you.” From night shift nurses who spend their downtime watching college football to working moms who enjoy long morning hikes and good wine, our personalities and hobbies are often reflected in what we choose to wear. Jenn Rogien, the costume designer for hit shows “Orange Is The New Black” and “Girls,” is no stranger to storytelling through style. “Style is a powerful visual expression of a woman, her best traits and the aspects of her life that matter most to her. Each woman, just like every character, has her own story,” she says. “I’m fortunate enough to bring some truly memorable characters to life using their wardrobe as a visual storytelling element.” Jenn has partnered up with T.J.Maxx to help women tell their own style stories, and has four important tips to help women visually express who they are.

SIGN ME UP, and while you’re at it, find me a gown because I’m about to marry that sandwich. Here are 10 other brekky sammies that will make you drool.
