Get More Followers With These Twitter-Themed Socks

Are you on Twitter and looking for more followers? Take your tweet campaign to the streets with these “Follow Me” knee-high socks created by Tel Aviv design team Gabby and Tal. With this Twitter faux tattoo, the invite and bird will encourage prospective followers to add you to their list. Of course, it’s also possible you’ll draw some attention from suitors who think you’re in the market for a stalker, not a Twitter groupie. But that’s a fashionista risk you’ll have to take.

All you need are a few classic menswear pieces that can be pilfered from your dad’s closet, thrifted, or purchased (details after the jump). Keep reading »

Jeans Are The New Power Suit

President Obama gave fashion critics something to talk about when he displayed a pair of “mom jeans” at a baseball game, Nicolas Sarkozy and his lovely wife Carla both donned denim for a recent trip to Egypt, and the Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev, chose jeans for a dinner date with Obama. Steve Jobs kept his fashion taste simple through the years — a black turtleneck and a pair of Levi’s 501s.

Suddenly, jeans are the new power look. Keep reading »

The Strapless Wedding Gown—Are You Over It?

Last weekend, at the wedding of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, something of a style statement was made: Ivanka choose to wear a gown with sleeves. (Full disclosure: It was an orthodox Jewish wedding, so sleeves, depending on the rabbi doing the marrying, are sometimes required.) Immediately on Monday morning, Cathy Horyn, fashion critic of the New York Times declared that sleeves are now where it’s at for wedding gowns. Don’t know about you (though you should let me know in the comments!), but I love that Ivanka deviated from every other bride out there (Hollywood, or not) and went with a different neckline. As Horyn said, “We’re so used to seeing brides in strapless dresses that Ms. Trump’s gown made a fresh statement.” Is this the beginning of the end of strapless? God, I hope so … When I went wedding gown shopping, I explicitly said, “no strapless”—what did I get? Strapless, strapless and more strapless. Honestly, are there any other options out there? I don’t mean to be an angry dress try-er on-er, but help a girl out—with straps, please! Even bridal gown guru Vera Wang is all for sleeves. When asked if she’s excited for a sleeve/strap revival she mentioned: “Nothing would make me happier. I’ve been doing strapless dresses for 15 years. It’s tiring.” What about you all, are you over the strapless bridal look or consider it to be the perfect classic wedding style? [NY Times] Keep reading »

Cheapskate: Target

Target was one of the first mega-retail chains to commit to selling affordable clothing and accessories alongside essentials like detergent, cosmetics, and food. Basically, it’s a one-stop shopping destination for recessionistas who aren’t willing to sacrifice style when on a budget. I’ve never seen any fashion item priced above $100, so you don’t have to feel any shopper’s guilt if you take yourself on a mini shopping spree. Check out our favorite Cheapskate finds, after the jump. Keep reading »

MoMA Chat Plates

When a guest doesn’t know anyone at a party, she usually ends up talking to the host or congregating around the snacks and booze. But these Chat Plates designed by Ikuko Nakazawa, which resemble conversation bubbles from manga comics, will remind everyone that the whole point of a party is to schmooze. Each set includes one large plate and two smaller ones that are microwaveable and dishwasher safe. This is the perfect time of year for entertaining, as you know, and your guests will thank you for not inundating them with more holiday-themed decorations. [$48, Velocity] Keep reading »

seasons savings: Granny’s Got a Brand New Bag
