Frye Says Get Your Boots Tattooed

Yes, of course you can get your skin tattooed, and even your nails — but what about your boots? Thanks to Frye’s new flagship store in downtown New York, yes, even your boots can get their own particular graphic vision fulfilled. Frye boots, shoes and sandals are some of our favorite footwear — because they have such a classic shape and style, and their leather goods last forever. Since they’re such great investment pieces, it’s nice to know that Frye is now offering its customers opportunity to customize via boot tattoos and hot stamping (which is basically like branding them like a cow). In fact, if you bring in a pair of your Frye’s to their Soho location, you can get your boots hot stamped for free! How’s that for a boot-i-ful deal? [Frye] Keep reading »

Milk-Made Clothes Aren’t Just For Milk Maids


German designer Anka Domaske hit upon a brilliant idea — why not make clothes out of milk fiber? Milk fiber strongly mimics silk, after all, but is easier to wash and care for, and much less expensive to produce. With that in mind, Domaske created Mademoiselle Chic Chic. “The special thing about it is that we can manufacture it without using any pesticides or chemicals,” she explains. And the milk used to produce the line is actually undrinkable, and would have otherwise been thrown out, so her collection is superbly sustainable, too! [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Love It Or Leave It: The Midi Skirt

One of the biggest trends heading into this fall is the midi skirt. (Get it? Not maxi, not mini, but mid-length–took me a while to figure that one out.) These calf-length skirts feel delightfully retro–especially the swingy, pleated versions–and it’s always a bonus when a trend is work-appropriate. The problem? They can be tough to wear, especially for those of us who are vertically challenged. I’m 5’3 with short legs and on the rare occasion I find a midi skirt that actually hits at mid-calf (rather than dragging on the floor), it’s not particularly flattering. “Stumpy” is really the best way to put it. So what about you? Are you embracing the midi skirt or leaving it on the rack? [Shown: Pleated Midi Skirt, $190, ASOS]

Do Not Want: Baby Doll Slippers

I feel uncomfortable just looking at this picture. Discovering that someone you know owns a pair of baby doll slippers should be an automatic friendship/dating dealbreaker as they are most likely a serial killer. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Coco Chanel’s Bisexuality, Drug-Use & Nazi Ties Come To Light In New Biography

Coco Chanel didn’t lay the foundation for her eponymous fashion empire by coloring within the lines and following the rules. So it’s not surprising that the deceased designer’s closet still holds a few skeletons–along with vintage little black Chanel dresses. In her book Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life, which will be released in the fall, biographer Lisa Chaney opens the door on Coco’s secrets. Chaney claims to have proof that Coco embraced bisexuality and drug use, and had an affair with Salvador Dali while he was married. By 2011 standards, these allegations aren’t particularly shocking, but another one might have a few fashion folks changing their opinions of the designer. Chaney also claims to have accessed documents from the Swiss Federal Archives that prove Coco’s German paramour, Hans Günther von Dincklage, spied for the Nazis during World War II. It’s unclear whether Coco knew he was a spy, but let’s not forget that she did live in neutral Switzerland for some time … perhaps to avoid any proceedings against her? This isn’t the first biography of Coco, and it probably won’t be the last, but Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life might be the most controversial and revealing.

Will you read Coco Chanel: An Intimate Life when it’s published? [WWD] Keep reading »

Silly Hats Abound At Zara Phillips’ Nuptials Because, Duh, It’s A Royal Wedding!

Zara Phillips Wedding
This weekend, the Queen’s eldest grandchild, Zara Phillips, wed her longtime boyfriend, rugby star Mike Tindall, in Edinburgh, Scotland. Isn’t she a lovely bride? Of course, a royal wedding is always a reason for Brits to bring out the crazy hats and Zara’s big day was no exception. The headwear was a little more sedate than it was at William and Kate’s wedding, though, probably because everyone was afraid of becoming the next Princess Beatrice-crazy-hat-meme. Check out all the hats, find out what Kate Middleton wore, and indulge in a gratuitous Prince Hot Ginge photo after the jump!
