There’s a new online fashion magazine out there called Flamboyant, and its debut issue presents this “artistic” spread of designer-inspired loaves of bread. In the mix are carb-loaded replicas modeled after brands like Hermès, Valentino, and Vivienne Westwood. Normally, we squeal girlishly (um, you know, on the inside) at these types of conceptual fashion/food photographs. Remember those Chanel and Louis Vuitton cupcakes?
While we get the idea, Flamboyant‘s take doesn’t quite follow through. OK fine, we’re just going to come out and say it: that Burberry “croissant” looks like a turd. Yum! [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »
I probably watched Jim Henson’s “Labyrinth”–starring a young Jennifer Connelly opposite the rawtha formidable one-and-only David Bowie, who played Jareth, the intimidating Goblin King–approximately 100 times when I was a kid and that’s no exaggeration. You better believe Bowie brought his signature sexy androgyny to the table and let’s just say it made a very young lady feel kinda funny inside. Is it weird to dress up as your childhood crush? Nah, but maybe it is a little kinky… Keep reading »

Normally, we’re not huge fans of the logo’d gear, but Fabrice mixes them up in a way that looks funky and fresh. We love how he’s paired these accessories with his pastel vintage sweater and plaid kicks. He’s in Prague’s Staromestske Nam (Old Town Square), headed toward Parizska trida, the designer shopping street, natch. What do you think of logo accessories?

We were so focused on the crappy Cyrus parents who let their 9-year-old daughter out of the house dressed like a sexy witch in dominatrix boots
, we forgot about scads of other crappy American parents who fret about their sons playing dress-up on Halloween
. Oh, The Onion
, you crack us up! Keep reading »
When TOMS Shoes first came out, I thought they looked weird and wouldn’t put on a pair to save my life (or even to help charitably put shoes on a child, as Toms does with every purchase). But this fall, they released a lace-up version that comes in various wool and canvas fabrics. Finally, a pair of TOMS for me! Thankfully, come spring, Toms will continue offering its lace-up Cordones in warm-weather-friendly canvas stripes and plaids. I’m not sure how I feel about the new striped wedge heels (photo after the jump), but with the right Audrey Hepburn in “Roman Holiday” outfit, I could be sold. Question though: TOMS isn’t giving this style to children in need, right? [Issuu, HuffPo] Keep reading »
If you’re in New York City next week, you’re a lucky girl. On Nov. 6 and 7, shoppers will be able to snap up deals and steals from more than 80 designers, including Frisky faves like Mint Jodi Arnold, Charlotte Ronson, Hanky Panky, and Rachel Comey, as part of Lucky magazine’s Lucky Shops event. Tickets start at $20, but with free cocktails (if you’re legal), giveaways, and up to 75 percent off designer goods, the discounts and extras make up for the price of admission. [Lucky Shops]

I love Halloween. I want to believe that everyone loves Halloween — like it’s a universal Tim Burton-style Christmas — and that we all come together, unified, for the sake of weirdness and costumes, zombies, vampires, princesses, and gore. I’m torn, though, on whether I love it enough to take Vogue‘s costume suggestions. For the haute couture undead look that’s all the rage, they suggest booking a professional stylist. The people of MAC, Sephora, Nars, or Henri Bendel will make you fabulous for a price. Some of these ghastly makeovers run over $200. I didn’t even spend that much for my wedding up-do! Silly and frivolous or the expensive style solution for the biggest dress-up day of the year? What’s a ghoul to do? Keep reading »
Requirements for buying any woman a gift:
1. One size fits all. Too big is unfortunate and too small is a suicide attempt waiting to happen.
2. It must be a classic style. When you have the universal fashion nod of approval it’s unlikely your cousin Tammy will return it.
3. It still has to be cute!
During the holiday season, I usually hit 2 out of 3 requirements and call it a success, but this year, Heather Hawkins is 3 for 3. Keep reading »
