Anna Wintour: Public Enemy #1 Of Discount Shoppers?

There’s no denying the rush of joy (and feeling like you’re getting away with theft) when you find an incredible designer piece at Loehmann’s or Nordstrom Rack that you can actually afford. Of course, on the flip side, there’s no more annoying feeling in life than when you’ve just spent your entire paycheck on an item of clothing, only to see it marked down 50 percent the next week.

Either way, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour doesn’t seem too happy about discounts in general (no surprise there). But even we were shocked by her rawtha extreme views! Keep reading »

British Illamasqua Makeup Has Arrived Stateside

One of the things I love to do is walk into a Sephora–the bright lights and subtle fragrances remind me of beauty heaven, if there ever were such a place. But I often find that I’m overwhelmed by all the makeup, skin care, and perfume choices. That’s why I’ve been shopping at MAC shops lately for makeup with bold colors that are visible on my skin. Now, however, I don’t have to decide between atmosphere and fun makeup because Illamasqua, which has been dubbed Britain’s version of MAC, has arrived in Sephora stores. Hello, vibrant pigments and unexpected textures! Now all I need to do is find time for one of their free lessons to take my makeup to the next level. [Beauty & the Blog] Keep reading »

The Rumor Mill: More Topshops In The New York Area!?

Swirling, unsubstantiated rumor has it that British mega-brand and recent New York immigrant Topshop–yes, the place to whence our collective wages go–will be setting up shop in Brooklyn next year. While we’re all excited for the Brooklynites who’d no longer have to cross the bridge for Topshop’s particular brand of decently-priced designer knockoffs inspired pieces, there are a few other places we’d rather see the chain open. Like, in lots of other cities across the nation. And right next door to our offices. Or, you know, in the same building. Who do we talk to about setting that up? [Papier Blog] Keep reading »

Is The New Knee Pad Trend For You?

Trend de la Creme reports: “It’s Official: Knee-Centric Leggings Are a Trend.” Lindsay Lohan created a pair last year, and now they’re everywhere, from Ann-Sofie Back to Marc Jacobs to Henrik Vibskov. So, what’s the reason? Why would girls want to wear knee pads? It’s hard not to think of one thing. For, you know, padded protection while servicing their male friends. Or, I guess, if a girl were to slip and fall on her way to work, these would be a life-saver. But the Monica Lewinsky idea is so much more interesting. Don’t you think?

New York Fashion Week May Change In A Major Way

CFDA President and fashion world matriarch Diane von Furstenberg think that the fashion industry is “in crisis.” From showing clothes months before the season they’re in stores to overly commercialized shows, and a growing sense of boredom coupled with a shrinking number of designers showing in the tents at Bryant Park, something has got to change. [The Cut]
