Take a good look at this picture from Hermes’ Fall Ready-to-Wear collection. Sure, it looks like some leather pants and some boots, but look closer: Those are pant boots — pants with built-in shoes. Of course, they’re from Hermès, so they’re prohibitively expensive, but it’s only a matter of time before this idea trickles down to mass fashion. I mean, we’ve already imagineered Sheggings, right?

Earlier this week, we asked you to tell us the most ridiculous fashion hybrid item you could imagine, along the lines of jeggings, jorts, shooties, and my contribution to the fashion lexicon, bradigan.

We’ve picked a winner — read her winning comment after the jump — but the rest of you can still grab a Soft Trench of your own at a steep discount during tomorrow’s Gap Flashion sale. The Soft Trench — normally priced at $89.95 — will be available in stores for a mere $50 tomorrow only. I’m not passing that up! Keep reading »

A bridal salon at Costo? Perfect! So now you can buy 5,000 bars of soap, 10 gallons of olive oil, 24 pairs of new socks, and your wedding gown all in one trip. Not to mention all the free samples you can munch on while you deliberate. Kirstie Kelly’s signature bridal collection will be popping up in various Los Angeles area Costcos for the budget-conscious bride. The collection of six couture gowns range in price from $699 to $1399 and come in sizes 2 to 24. Not that I have to shop for a bridal gown anytime in the imminent future, but if I did, I wouldn’t be opposed to purchasing it at Costco. How about you? Would you get your wedding dress at Costco?
