Jonathan Saunders’ Topshop Collection Vaguely Britney-Justin Circa 2001

It designer Jonathan Saunders’s collection for Topshop hits stores today. It’s a very limited line with a handful of T-shirts and denim creations and we love. But is it just us or does this particular patchwork denim corset/skirt combo look vaguely reminiscent of Britney and Justin’s famous matching denim formal wear from 2001? Saunders would probably deny such a link, and says his inspiration comes from elsewhere: “My collection for Topshop this season has been inspired by sportswear and workwear, as well as the bold and graphic shapes of the Memphis movement. It’s perfect for urban city dwellers.”

Still, we kind of see it—do you? Get a look at the rest of the collection after the jump! Keep reading »

Cheapskate: DSW

Ahh … shoe shopping is sometimes better than sex. Wearing a pair of shoes that you love can make you feel as sexy as you do post-climax. And getting them for a good deal doesn’t hurt either. So we’re loving the fact that we don’t have to walk up and down long aisles to really appreciate DSW’s affordable offerings. We’d much rather shoe shop from our desks. Check out our favorite DSW finds after the jump. Keep reading »

Topshop Mesh High Heels

The mesh trend that started with YSL’s cage heel hasn’t lost steam in our style books. While we’d like to own the high fashion stuff, Topshop‘s affordable mesh high heels do the trick, creating a look that’s edgy and industrial but incredibly sexy at the same time. A Velcro fastening brings something extra to these shoes, which will work all year round. [$100, Topshop] Keep reading »

Makeup Tutorial: How To Create Lady Gaga Anime Eyes

Michelle Phan videos are oddly mesmerizing. But combine her soothing voice with ultra-scary Lady Gaga googly eyes à la “Bad Romance,” and you’ve got viral gold, baby. At around the point where she’s talking about her boiled wig and the circle contacts — and you’re still watching — you know the trance has fully set in. Happy Friday. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Ever Steep Your Hair In Tea?

We’ve heard about some weird natural hair treatments that involve everything and anything in your kitchen—eggs, avocado, honey, olive oil, beer even. For model Elaine Irwin Mellencamp, the secret ingredient is tea. She says, “To brighten and add a burst of shine to your hair, soak it in tea. The tea lowers the hair’s pH, neutralizes the color, and closes the cuticle for tons of shine and softness. Chamomile for blondes, regular tea for darker hair.”

What do you think? Would you give this quick beauty trick a try? We’re intrigued. [Modelinia]

What If You Had $40,000 To Spend On Designer Clothes?

I almost regret sharing this news, mostly because I just entered myself, but I love you guys and this is a serious need to know. In celebration of their one millionth order, Net-A-Porter is offering fans the chance to win a $40,000 shopping spree, no purchase necessary. Here’s the link to enter. That’s like the granddaddy of all grand prizes ever, or, as I just read in Women’s Wear, “it equals a capsule Balmain wardrobe, 160 pairs of jeans or a pair of Christian Louboutin shoes every day for two months.” Sick. [WWD]

Now let’s play a little game, shall we? Say you won. How the hell would you even begin to spend it!? I think I’d start with a buttery soft Rick Owens biker jacket, some Alexander Wang sweats, a couple Vivienne Westwood Monroe dresses and sure, I’d throw some Louboutins in the mix. Then I would spend approximately one week (or more) agonizing over the rest. You? Keep reading »

Posh And Becks Design Charity T-Shirts For Sport Relief

Apparently, Victoria isn’t the only fashion designer in the multi-talented Beckham family. Coming together for a charity project, she, David, and even their three sons, collaborated to create T-shirts for the organization Sport Relief, which “help[s] poor and vulnerable people” in disadvantaged countries. Whether they intended to or not, the shirts do take on a home art project feeling with their collages of stars, spray paint lettering, and images of David balancing a soccer ball. Keep reading »

A Dark Pout + Freckles = Fierce

Oh, the beauty of “flaws!” Photographers Julia Galdo and Cody Cloud, better known as JUCO, shot freckle-faced model Nikia Phoenix for their Freckles series. And now that I’ve peeped these beautifully fierce photos, I’m wishing I was born with spots of my own. Check out more of their photos here. Keep reading »

It Takes Shoes 1,000 Years To Biodegrade!?

If I had to estimate, I would assume I currently own and wear about 40 pairs of shoes, between all the boots, sandals, heels, and flip flops in my closet. You can say I’m a bit of a shoe addict. But after learning how long it takes for soles to compost, I’m re-thinking my love affair. According to Thomas Briel of BIO-D Biodegradable Shoes from Simple Shoes, your average footwear sits in a landfill for about 1,000 years before they decompose. Just think about that for a second. Over the course of a lifetime, I’m sure people accumulate hundreds of shoes. Multiply that by the population of the world, and we’re quickly destroying our lovely Earth just with what we wear on our feet. Because of this, Simple Shoes designed an entire collection of shoes that only take 20 years to compost, instead of the overwhelming 1,000. Now that I know the damage my shoes are doing to the environment, I’ll really think twice about buying a pair I don’t actually need. Will you? [Treehugger] Keep reading »
