Rue La La, one of our favorite designer sample sale sites, kicked off its 48-hour sale of Rock & Republic jeans today. Rock & Republic is known for bringing their customer chic and edgy jeans and sportswear. Their jeans have come to symbolize luxury and status for today’s ambitious and fashion-forward generation. But even those with a more moderate budget than the typical Rock & Republic consumer can get the same look for less during Rue La La’s two-day sale. Rock & Republic jeans usually retail for about $200 or more, but Rue La La is selling them for about $80. If you’re not a member of Rue La La, it’s free and easy to sign up. But hurry before all the jeans sell out!
Rue La La sent me a pair of Rock & Republic “Stella” Bootcut Jeans to try out. See how I styled them after the jump. Keep reading »
Uh, that’s not a butterfly. That’s a butterfly sculpture made out of hair. Seattle artist Adrienne Antonson creates “resourceful, sustainable, meticulous and pretty” insects using only human hair and glue.
Antonson decided to work in hair because, “As an artist with a deep interest in sustainable and self-supporting systems, human hair seems the most immediate and true material. I find the historical implications and various uses of human hair fascinating. I am also intrigued with the attraction/repulsion response the material evokes. It is sentimental, challenging and honest.”
More hairsects after the jump. [Mixed Greens] Keep reading »
I should probably find this video of Snooki giving an 11-year-old a makeover in her likeness — heavily applied bronzer, poof, and all — really offensive. She’s a kid! She doesn’t need to look like a Jersey guidette with alcohol running through her veins! But I don’t know, I found this makeover kind of adorable and silly and funny. I mean, Snooki is a cartoon character. Like Dora the Explorer. What’s the harm in that? Keep reading »
” see Internets every morning — I don’t have an e-mail address and, you know, I don’t do Internet, but every morning my boyfriend, Alex, makes me coffee and we watch these images. And more and more I see these stylish women wearing all these evening dresses for day, and I thought, how beautiful. So it’s not just about the nice gray sweater and the nice, I don’t know, that nice straight skirt, but it’s becoming a little bit more elaborated during the day.”
– Alber Elbaz explains the inspiration for Lanvin’s pre-fall 2011 collection to The Cut. He’s also another designer to admit he hasn’t employed the full power of the internet to do business. Maybe that’s why the majority of legitimate fashion bloggers have a difficult time getting invitations to the high-end fashion shows, unless they are a geeky teenager with gray hair. Keep reading »
