Remember when Charlie Sheen did that really weird thing that one time? No, no, not the time he completely lost his mind, shacked up with a couple of porn stars and talked about winning and warlocks. We’re referring to when Sheen decided he’d make kid’s clothes. Yes, that happened. Well, now mega-weeded mogul Snoop Dogg is teaming up with David Beckham (oh sure) to launch a line of children’s clothing. It seems the pair met when Beckham appeared on Snoop’s “Father Hood” reality show back in 2007 and kept in touch. “I’d love to do a Babygro range and baby house shoes with Beckham,” Snoop supposedly told The Daily Mirror “It’s going to be fly. It’s great news they are having a baby.” And also, of Beckham, Mr. Dogg said, “He’s like a brother. I’m gonna show him to rap, for shizzle. He’s my boy. I love soccer just as he loves hip-hop. Beckham needs to keep doing what he’s doing, he’s a great father.” [Daily Mirror] Keep reading »

Crew which has the lovely sounding name of “Plumeria.” We plan on donning this adorable suit with a straw fedora and big glamour girl shades — and a high SPF, of course. Summer, hurry your ass up!
Oh, how I love infomercials. This one for the “Slobstopper” tries to sell you an oversized bib for $14.95. “Has this ever happened to you?” Actually, no. Please tell me this one is a joke. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
Fashion is a mean and fickle industry: You spend one million space bucks on some really fancy designer item, only to be told that it’s “so last season.” That’s where businesses like Rent the Runway come in: They allow you to rent in-season designer garments for the night, or the week or the month so that you can have the look and pay the rent. If that sort of thing is important to you. New statistics from Rent the Runway have just been released, and it turns out that the company’s chief consumers aren’t fashion-happy galleristas and shop girls in New York or Los Angeles, but sorority girls at southern universities. Says a recent Wall Street Journal report on them:
College campuses—and even a few elite prep schools—make up roughly 25 percent of the company’s business and are a big source of its growth. “It starts out with prom and moves on to graduation,” says chief executive Jennifer Hyman, explaining how girls transition into loyal customers as they try out Alice & Olivia, D&G, Missoni, Diane von Furstenberg, Trina Turk and other designers—often for the first time.
