If you’re a regular in these parts you already know that our staffers are Gilt Groupe addicts, and Gilt Fuse, its newborn sister site, is just as yummy, not to mention a wee bit easier on our wallets. The good folks over there sent us this preview of one of the goodies that’ll be on sale during the Plenty by Tracy Reese bonanza tomorrow (it starts at noon, and you beyotches best get out the way, because we are all logging in at 11:59 and counting the seconds!). They also casually mentioned that one of you fine ladies may be interested in winning all four of these gorgeous Ettika bracelets ($55-$75 each!), which you can stack on and would go smashingly with this Plenty by Tracy Reese T-back dress which will be $94 tomorrow (normally it’s $265).
We’re giving one winner all four bracelets, but you have to work if you want to win. The best commenter this weekend—from today, Thursday Aug 27 through Monday, Aug 31—will be awarded with a set. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can! Click HERE to read the official rules. Keep reading »
We are forever looking for ways to make working out less painfully boring, but we must begrudgingly admit that V magazine and Jessica Stam beat us to the punch with their new workout spread. Somehow, we neglected to realize that evening gowns, stilettos, neon wrist bands and sky high ponytails were the way to jazz up our gym routines. And while one might think that leather leggings wouldn’t allow for all that much breathing, Stam looks perfectly content in the photoshoot, so we’re inclined to believe that Rachel Zoe, the shoot’s stylist, found a solution.

For those who really like to see things as they are, D-Vision, a design collective, has invented these wonderful dishes which take a literal interpretation of they food they hold. For apples, a bowl with a space to put your core, or the Bubbalicious container made of spherical shapes that allows it to sit different ways. Cool, right?

When hookers in Brazil want to protest discrimination, they take to the seams. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, prostitutes in Rio de Janeiro walked the runway as models for Gabriela Leite’s Daspu label (“daspu” comes from the slang term “das putas” or “the whores”). The former prostitute started the label four years ago “as a way for prostitutes to gain regular income while also fighting preconceptions of people affected with AIDS.”
“Daspu gets rid of prejudice,” says Leite. “It opens paths for the citizen whore.” Keep reading »
We love shopping for “lounge clothes” — you know, the duds you throw on the second you walk in your pad after a long day at work. Lounge clothes are different than pajamas because, in theory, you could go outside in them and not look like you just busted out of a mental institution. These Gap leggings technically can be paired under dresses or long tunics, but because of the purple stripes (which are likely to clash with, um, a lot), we think they’re a little more appropriate for lounging comfortably (they’re mega cozy) on your couch while watching a “Real Housewives” marathon. But if you happen to trot outside to grab a beverage, no one will glance twice. [$11.99, Gap] Keep reading »

Since we won’t get to see Jason Schwartzman in his upcoming film “Fantastic Mr. Fox” (due to it being animated and all), we’re very pleased the actor is featured in the look book for Band of Outsiders‘ fall 2009 collection. (The label’s designer, Scott Sternberg, has also used our girl crushes, including Michelle Williams and Marisa Tomei, to show off his women’s collection, Boy by Band of Outsiders.) The distinctive, dreamy look of the Polaroid images make us want to Poladroid all our photos from this summer so our lives will look equally cool. The only thing that would make this better is if Jason were holding our hand, rather than this mannequin’s. Check out two more photos from the look book after the jump.

Then check out Whoodoo Dolls, extra chic, pin cushiony little bits that allow you to torture the likes of major style players Victoria Beckham, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and legendary punk rock designer Vivienne Westwood (left), though we’re not sure who would wanna eff with her. She rules.

I’ve never understood the appeal of roughing it. Communing with nature can be fun for some, but I prefer a concrete jungle any day. Modern amenities like hot showers and flushing toilets are necessities to me, not luxuries. But pretty soon I might be singing a different tune because, apparently, “glamping” is on the rise. Glamorous camping sites make roughing it a little more palatable because most of the comforts of home are available in the outdoors, making camping an upscale vacation option. Most glamping establishments currently cater to a very upscale clientele, according to The Wall Street Journal, but you can turn a normal campsite into a glamping paradise with our suggestions after the jump. And for more info on everything glamping, check out GlampingGirl.com. Keep reading »
