Behold a look from Topshop‘s Spring/Summer 2011 lookbook … which looks eerily like photos of our 13-year-old selves. Stringy hair with bad dye job? Check. Socks with shorts? Check. Completely mismatching outfit? Yup. [Nitrolicious] Keep reading »
Will the idea of private sales for automobiles actually take off? We were pretty stunned when Gilt announced they were offering three VW Jettas for the insanely awesome price of $5,995. Sure, kinda crazy to buy a car off the internet … on a whim … from a clothing website, but we sort of dig the idea. Now it turns out Gilt is offering up Vespas. Racked reports that there are two models which price at $5,520 (down from $7,236) and $3,740 (down from $4,736). Can you feel the wind in your hair already? [Racked] Keep reading »
Today’s big fashion news: Carine Roitfeld, super skinny French woman and editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, has just announced that she will be leaving her post after January. In the 10 years she’s held the position, Roitfeld has become a style icon in her own right, so, understandably, some are a bit shocked to see her stepping away from such a powerful position. Her reason for leaving? She says she wants to focus on personal projects and says that “it’s time to do something different.” We totally get that feeling. In an economy where people should be “thanking their lucky stars” if they have a job, we often forget about our own personal growth and desires. Obviously, Carine is in a professional and financial position that allows her the luxury to just walk away from a job, but the mentality is something to remember—everyone needs change in their lives and it’s OK to walk away from a good thing from time to time.

This super cute necklace has just the right amount of cheekiness to make it right up there on the wants list. We love the laser-cut black acrylic; the sans serif font and drippy bits are simple and bold at the same time. And at 30 percent off, this accessory is at a price that makes us say oui!
We love chains, lots of them. We love mixing metals and harnesses too. But does Arden B go overboard with this chain vest? All those beads and tassels and pearls and chains of different lengths around the chest pulling and drooping at the same time. And what would one wear with it? You could always pull a Christina Aguilera and wear nothing underneath it. Yeah, that makes it useful. Not! [$59, Arden B] Keep reading »
CAVI is probably a fashion brand that your guy is more familiar with, since it became known for its men’s embellished military shirt that Jay-Z wore in 2004. But now, CAVI is letting you in on its fashion act with its first-ever women’s collection. CAVI had the “prima donna” in mind for the holiday collection, which features the Night Cap Dress (above) and more trendy items like a faux fur vest. The CAVI woman provides the glamorous counterpoint to the more rugged CAVI man. She has more flair, but also a bit of grit in her style, says CAVI creative director Garth Cabral. You can shop the CAVI holiday collection at Macy’s, and check out more photos of the collection after the jump. Keep reading »
