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. With the way the fashion world is set up, it often feels like you can never see what you want and then buy it the same day—even when the season is off. We spend all this time immediately analyzing trends off the runway and devouring photos, but by the time the clothes are released, we’re on to the next thing and they almost seem like old news. According to New York Times fashion critic Cathy Horyn, we may begin to see fashion houses appealing more to the consumer’s instant gratification desire. Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Lumpy Leggings

We included skinny cargo pants on our list of trends we hope die in 2011 for good reason, but these cargo leggings deserve a separate shout-out of their own. The combination of skintight spandex and lumpy thigh pockets not only creates a supremely unflattering silhouette, it also encourages the wearing of leggings as pants (another trend that made our list). 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.

Would You Spend Up To $300 On A Friendship Bracelet?

We love these super fun one-of-a-kind friendship bracelets by designers Frieda and Nellie, though ranging from $150 to $300, are these pricey bracelets worth the splurge? The combination of saturated colors, rhinestones and vintage charms are fantastic, but something inside me keeps saying we should just be making these ourselves. Keep reading »

There’s No Place Like Nike, There’s No Place …

What you see before you are clearly not your average Nike sneakers. When Nike asked designer Lauren Tennenbaum to imagine a pair as she wished, she went “Wizard of Oz”-style on the kicks and created a ruby slipper-esque pair with a sky-high platform. While we think these kicks are kind of ridiculous, we still feel our inner child squeal with glee. (C’mon … didn’t you at one point have some sparkly red shoes or at least wish for them?) What do you think of these sequin-happy shoes? Awesome or insane? [High Snobette] Keep reading »
