How Does Your Job Affect Your Style?

My friend Molly has a wardrobe many young professionals would envy. She works at Banana Republic, and consequently has a closet full of stylish, classy pieces purchased at a heavy discount. Whenever we hang out she looks polished and put together. A couple weeks ago, we were out Christmas shopping and Molly picked up a skater-style Volcom hoodie, clutched it to her bosom and said, “I never buy stuff like this because all I do is work and I have nowhere to wear it.” This got me thinking about how much our jobs can affect our personal style… Keep reading »

Guess Which Company’s Advertisement Now Boasts This Racy Photo

At first glance, this racy pic looks like a lingerie ad or at least a fashion spread from a high style magazine. But it’s for neither of those things. In fact, this photo doesn’t exactly have a lot to do with the company—at least not in our opinion. Find out what it’s for after the jump. [WWD] Keep reading »

For Designers Banking On Instant Gratification, “Seasons” May Become A Thing Of The Past

While we are die-hard Fashion Week fans, we’ve often griped about the frustration it brings because winter collections are shown in the summer, spring collections in the winter, and so on and so forth.

For shame! [$176, Shopbop] Keep reading »

An Open Letter To Denim Designers

Dear Jeans Designers,

The other day I was standing in line at the grocery store and for no particular reason at all I had a flashback to a few years ago when super low-rise jeans were all the rage. Every rack at every store from Forever 21 to J.Jill was stocked with nothing but thong-baring jeans with 3-inch crotches. As an Italian girl with an ample belly, this was a very dark time for me… Keep reading »

Keep Track Of The New Year

It used to be that on Christmas or Hanukkah, our more practical parent always gifted us with a wall calendar for the upcoming year. Back then, 12 months of Kirk Cameron was something to look forward to. Now that we’re older, we want a wall calendar that’s sleek and practical to go above our desk. We’d hang this canvas calendar with four tacks, with a fifth to mark the date.
