Head Over Heels For: The Breton Shirt

Always fans of casual French style that still looks chic, we fell pretty hard for Erin’s French Mariner shirt, as she called it, when she wore it the other day (and again today). Also known as a Breton shirt, these classic boatneck-collared, striped shirts were made part of the French seaman’s uniform list in 1858. It has been mariners wore this style because the stripes made it easier to find a man who had fallen into the sea. We hope we don’t end up treading water in the Atlantic any time soon, but we’ll be pulling on one of the five sailor-style shirts below just in case. Keep reading »

Trendspotting: Fashion Spandex?

Spandex shapewear doesn’t have such a great rep, previously making appearances in bad ’80s music videos and being the culprit behind embarrassing hookup moments. But things might be turning around. DKNY is about to give the oh-so-trendy Spanx a run for its money by launching a new line of tummy-tucking underwear that is meant to be a bit cooler, thanks to neon pink and blue colors. Grazia has pointed out that maybe there’s a trend beginning here, since the presentation of Topshop‘s “Unique” collection was filled with workout-like looks—sports bra-like bandeau tops were paired with Spandex biker shorts under jean shorts.

An American Girl Doll That’s Homeless

Homelessness is having a “moment.” There are windows at Barneys embracing the sad, unfortunate reality and W magazine gave Sasha Pivovarova designer bags to pose with as she channeled a homeless woman. It’s one thing to have fashion and editorials take inspiration from homelessness. We’re certainly not saying it’s right, but in the time of a recession, life on the street is certainly many people’s reality. But it’s quite another for a toy brand to create a doll who has a deadbeat father and homeless mother.

Yes, that’s right. Mattel has created an American Girl doll named Gwen Thompson who, according to the book written about her, lives in a car with her family, because they are homeless. Her father walked out on the family, leaving her mother alone to raise Gwen. Keep reading »

The First Lady’s Feet Are Put To The Test … What’s Your Pain Threshold For Heels?

Last night the Obamas hosted a dinner for the G20 summit, and, naturally, Michelle was expertly styled. Reports The New York Times:

“Mrs. Obama [wore] a taupe, pink and green patterned cocktail dress with straps. Pink patent leather two-inch heels. Hair pulled back in a full, bouffant faux-ponytail. Long pearl necklace, pearl earrings. No stockings.”

Aside from the fact that Michelle Obama hasn’t fully transitioned to her fall wardrobe (no tights!), we were more struck by her shoes … Keep reading »

Travel Diary: My Costa Rican Surf Adventure

I recently crossed something off my bucket list. At 29-almost-30, I finally learned how to surf. Despite growing up in sunny San Diego, I’d never learned, and after a failed attempt to teach myself in Hawaii as a teenager — resulting in bloody knees and feet after a detour through a coral reef — I never tried again. Until this summer. Keep reading »

Karl Lagerfeld Is Watching His Figurine

Seems like Karl Lagerfeld has been lightening up recently which is nice, because, really dude, why so serious? Now the K-man’s image is getting a makeover in the form of a 10-inch collectible. Designed by Tokidoki, Mini Karl comes all Manga‘d-out, but still retains his signature style: black suit, tie, sunglasses, fingerless gloves. (Although, that stance actually looks Schwarzenegger-esque, no?)

Naturally, Karl wouldn’t want just anyone getting their hands on the doll. The limited edition collection contains just 1,000 models, which will be sold at Colette in Paris, and in the New York and L.A. Tokidoki stores.

Of course, all Mini Karl might do is make real Karl’s ego bigger. [WWD]

Pam Anderson Is (Still) A Lovable Hot Mess

Vivienne Westwood isn’t the only designer who is looking to Pamela Anderson as a muse. Heatherette designer and legendary NYC club kid Richie Rich, seen here in skates (you’ve heard of models falling, now designers are wiping out, too), teamed up with Pam to create an eco-line called A.Muse. The two decided to debut it during New Zealand Fashion Week, and Pam really went out of her way to show the entire collection, including her ass cheeks, after the jump! Keep reading »
