Nary a day goes by lately without another store closing, one more report of plummeting sales figures and a bright glint of hope that Crocs may finally go under due to massive losses.

I remember the days when manicures were fun. More often now, it seems like a burden and an expense when I look at my hands and go, Ugh, I need a manicure so bad. So, when browsing the drug store the other day, I was tempted by this package of nail gems by Fing’rs (creepiest… READ MORE »

I recently heard that the Herve Leger line by Max Azria now includes swimwear, so I decided to see what all the fuss was about. I flipped through the designer’s 2009 summer swimsuit collection online, but to my surprise, a swimsuit was no where to be seen. … READ MORE »

Every year, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists re-interpret a classic for Gap. The last couple years, they rethought white shirts. This year, it’s khaki that’s getting a makeover. Our favorite from the collection — though we’d wear them all — is design duo Vena Cava’s khaki zip dress. This certainly ain’t your mama’s chino. [$88,… READ MORE »

Call it a slightly different sort fashion risk. Sheena Matheiken is a woman on a mission. With the help of clothing designer Eliza Starbuck, Matheiken is wearing a single dress every day for the next year.

Oops, it’s June now, and you have neither worked out… READ MORE »

At first look, these metallic earrings are rather cute. Not my style necessarily, but statement jewelry is in and there is nothing particularly off about them. At second look, I am permanently scarred and already have a call in to my therapist. I should actually be calling my gynecologist to see if these sperm and… READ MORE »

Well, hellooooo kitty! Check out the new Hello Kitty Castle, a shrine to the cult cat that just opened in Shanghai. While we outgrew our Sanrio obsession a few years ago, we get the obsessive appeal of the cute feline, and can’t help but drool over the squeal-worthy interior, which features furniture decorated with bows… READ MORE »

Eighteen-year-old Kimberley Vlaminck is freaking the hell out. The Belgian teen asked for just three little star tattoos on her face. But she fell asleep and woke up with 56 stars tattooed all over her cheeks, chin, forehead and nose.

She’s now suing tattoo artist Rouslan Tourmaniantz (check him out!) to get the 53… READ MORE »

Is this what 15 looks like these days? The other day, I came across this post on Fashion Copious, one of my favorite fashion blogs. It was titled: “The Lips! & The Sphere Of Her Stomach.” Its subject is Lindsay Wixson, a bee-stung-lipped, baby-faced, up-and-coming model who could be the Next Big Thing. READ MORE »

Hiiiiiya! You’ve heard about the life-saving purse and the real miracle bra, but now one manufacturer has dared to wonder: Ladies, are you sick of carrying a giant bag and wearing an underwire brassiere while you fend off bad guys? Well, then Foxy Brown, your day has finally arrived thanks to the Tactical Corset. This… READ MORE »

Why do men keep stealing our garments and accessories? The male headband is another unnecessary male fashion-y thing we hope won’t become a trend. If a guy’s hair is becoming a nuisance because it’s too long, then he should cut it or try a new hair product. I’m guessing the stylist who added the band… READ MORE »
