Quote Of The Day: Kat Von D Talks Clients Out Of Stupid Tattoos

5 Ways To Make An Old Outfit Look New

When I was little, my mom would take me shopping at the beginning of every season. I’d pick about x new shirts, x pairs of pants, a handful of skirts and most of the old stuff would be given away. Those were the days. Now, however, the potent combination of paying for my own things and not being able to justify throwing out closets of clothes that still fit have forced me to reconsider my shopping methods. Instead of buying a closet of new clothes, I buy a few nice things a year. It’s great when I first buy them and want to wear the new dresses to death. But then winter rolls around the next year and the wool sheath dress I bought last November isn’t so exciting anymore. Know what I’m saying here? In order to prevent you from the sort of wardrobe ennui that might inspire you to light your closet on fire, here are five solid ways to make old clothes feel new again. Keep reading »

    Which Celeb Couple Commissioned This Skull Candle?

    We only have a small piece of the puzzle: Lore is that these life-sized Koff candles were created exclusively for some famous rock star couple’s wedding. (Feel free to venture a guess, but please, don’t toss and turn all night thinking about it.) All we care about at this point is that they’re finally, hot-off-the-presses available to the public, and they would make a super schweet and unusual gift for someone very special this holiday season. Of course, at $74.25, that person would have to have been really, really good this year, and we’d have to be making a rock star salary. Still, love it. [My Wardrobe] Keep reading »

    Fashion Writer Smackdown, Take 87

    Remember that NY Times style writer Cintra Wilson, who claimed JC Penney was nothing but a “dowdy Middle American entity” catering to fat, overweight people (i.e., anyone over a size 2)? Well, the press is still giving her flack for it. (To which I say, rightly so, considering all the ignorance she’s spewed. Hell, the much-lauded-by-the-fashion-industry Olsens are now designing for the retailer!) The latest smackdown is courtesy of The Awl, who not only make their own trip to JC Penney and report back, but also hilariously point out that she’s the Tucker Max of fashion columnists, due to her over-usage of the word “fat.” Here’s what they found, contrary to what Wilson wrote … Keep reading »

    Check Out Forever 21′s New Beauty Line

    Continuing their obvious bid for complete and total retail domination, Forever 21 has expanded into beauty, because clearly they’re not satisfied simply sticking to fast fashion. The new collection, Love & Beauty, will launch on Nov. 8 and include lip gloss, mascara, eyeshadow, and eyeliner. While the products surely won’t be Sephora-style quality, it’ll most likely be the cheapest and easiest way to try new beauty trends — a similar approach for many to their trendy clothing. If you spend $75 today, you’ll receive a free lip gloss to try … and hopefully you’ll love it enough to become a fan of the line. This is just the beginning of their expansion though, as the brand is planning on moving into the home goods sector as well. Like we said, total domination. [Forever 21] Keep reading »

    Nail Art As Real Art

    Finally, someone looks beyond the superficial value of manicures. Photographer Molly Sorno focuses her work on nail art, salons, and manicure culture. Her pictures make you realize that your nails say a lot about you—concentrate solely on them, and you start imagining the person neon airbrushed tips belong to. Sorno’s work is now on display at the Brooklyn, NY gallery Nefer/NFR along with other artists’ works that explore the concept of adornment. If you’re in the area, check it out! Otherwise, look to Sorno’s vision as proof that what you wear on the outside resonates culturally. (Just don’t go so far as to call yourself an artist when you’re getting dressed in the morning.)
