4 Ways The iPad Could Change Fashion

Admit it. Half the fun of getting your iPhone was shopping for cases and fingerless gloves afterward. So the Los Angeles Times makes a good point: What style accompaniments will the iPad produce? Two words: Big. Pockets. (Insert “Is that an iPad in your pants or are you just happy to see me?” jokes here.)

Scottvest, the maker of super-functional outerwear, is already on it, announcing “the first and only clothing line for the iPad.” The travel vest includes an enormous inner pocket, roomy enough to store the Apple gizmo. So, we had to wonder … what are some other ways techies will start toting? After the jump, three more scary possibilities.

Say It Ain’t So: Noah Cyrus Designs Children’s Lingerie Collection?


Celebuzz is reporting that 9-year-old Noah Cyrus is launching a children’s “lingerie” collection called Ooh! La, La! Couture. We wouldn’t hold it past the girl who did a so-wrong rendition of “Smack That” to make such a move, but it seemed slightly unlikely to us. So, here’s what we gather—the designs aren’t so much lingerie as they are slutty dress-up clothes, and in fact appear falsely credited to Noah. The range of leopard tutus is actually inspired by Noah’s BFF, Disney star Emily Grace. (Seems Noah is along for the ride to help promotion.) Keep reading »

Coins Have Value, Too

The Littlest Coin Purse from Anthropologie will glam-up the chore of counting pennies. The festive embroidery, bright colors, and sparkly beading will make you prefer to pull this purse out instead of your billfold. And you’ll feel no guilt paying for items with this often overlooked legal tender. [$9.95, Anthropologie] Keep reading »

Johnny Weir Takes ESPN Reporter For A Mani/Pedi


ESPN’s Jim Caple gets introduced to a whole new world when he meets up with Olympic ice skater Johnny Weir for a manicure, pedicure, some paraffin wax and a little sex talk. (Johnny: “I don’t have sex. I don’t have time anyway—man, woman, tree.”) And the hat! Close-ups of gnarly man-toes (belonging to Caple)! The man, woman, tree multiple mentions! It’s everything you want it to be—and more. [You Tube] Keep reading »

Cheapskate: La Garçonne Sale

La Garçonne is one of our obsessions, but rarely do we buy anything because we simply can’t afford labels like Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, and Helmut Lang. Fortunately, the folks at La Garçonne have taken pity on us by putting a major crop of items on sale. While we still can’t rationalize spending $1,000-plus on this Tsumori Chisato Reversible Coat, we found a ton of stuff for less than $200. This way we can satisfy our designer jones, but won’t go broke in the process. So what if we have to eat a peanut butter sandwich for lunch everyday for a week to make up for it? After the jump, find our favorite sale items from La Garçonne. Keep reading »

If You Want To Get Kinky For V-Day, It’ll Cost You

Valentine’s Day is coming, bringing with it metric tons of frilly pink crepe paper, dudes making their once-yearly cooking attempts, and a windfall for the Whitman’s chocolate factory. The annual love-fest has become overwhelming enough that Anti V-Day is equally ubiquitous, yet I sometimes find myself lamenting my shacked-up state. The single-people celebrations tend towards bad-ass-ery, sex, and fun, free of pudgy cupids. The New York Times ran a piece yesterday offering suggestions on how we can all make our V-Day experiences a little more, ahem, risqué than cheap champagne. Keep reading »

How To Dress For An Unexpectedly Icky Day

When I left the house this morning, it was snowing. Hard. This, after Monday’s New York downpour, had us a tad pissed off, wet and cursing the decision to wear suede shoes. No more of this BS! No more ruined pumps! We’re going to make the junky weather our bitch with entirely appropriate (but still attractive) rain/snow/horrible weather gear. How to do it, after the jump. Keep reading »

How To Create Splendid Couture Nails At Home

Most of us can only dream of getting our greedy little hands on a real couture gown — the exquisite tailoring, such rich fabric, those intricate details! — but we can recreate the actual nails used in most runway shows. (Hey, we’ll take what we can get.) For Lebanese designer Elie Saab’s show in Paris this week, Creative Nail Design busted a move that we’ve done plenty of times with eyeshadow and lipstick, but forgot to try with nails: They layered CND Colour polish in Creamy Cameo and Effect in Lavender Pearl (find ‘em here), for an extra “opalescent, luxe” look that perfectly complemented Saab’s outrageously gorgeous, opulent gowns. Hey, we think this combo would look great with jeans and a T-shirt, too. Keep reading »
