Chillax At The Beach In The Ostrich Chair

It has been a while since I brought you anything seriously wacky from the blogosphere. I hit a dry spell. This time I have found something pretty nutty. Actually, I am a bit thrown off as this oddball find looks like it might really do what the box says it will. How unusual! Keep reading »

The 2010 Met Ball Is Gonna Be Mini

With the Metropolitan Musuem of Art cutting fourteen percent of it’s staff (169 employees, to be exact) and the economy, well, continuing to not do so hot, there’s a big, giant question mark as to next year’s Vogue-sponsored Costume Institute Gala reports Fashion Week Daily. According to two uber-insiders, the 2010 Ball “will be a much less splashy affair–a move the museum is said to welcome. The guest list will consist mostly of trustees and benefactors who purchase full-priced tickets instead of the designers, models and Hollywood types who once sat at their comped tables.” If you ask me, this isn’t such a bad change—in recent years the celeb circus grew to unnecessary proportions. Smaller can be better! [Fashion Week Daily] Keep reading »

The Frisky TV: What Are These Beauty Products For?

From my dad to my boyfriend, I definitely wouldn’t expect them to be able to use most of the beauty products I own, let alone understand my fashion choices. Knowing that the beauty measures women sometimes take often look like medieval torture to men, I decided to ask a few guys on the street to identify some beauty thingamajigs. To be sneaky, I threw in an equally as confusing men’s grooming tool and let the camera roll. Would the men in your life have passed my test? Keep reading »

Rumor: Uniqlo Taking Over Gap?

It’s no secret that the Gap has been struggling in recent years to keep up profits and keep the attention of buyers. The denim giant may be doing worse than we thought because rumors have begun circulating that Uniqlo is considering purchasing the business. While at first this takeover would seem unlikely (Uniqlo’s presence in the United States is nowhere near as strong as the Gap’s), Uniqlo actually comes from a rather strong empire called Fast Retail, founded in 1984 by Tadashi Yanai. Yanai reportedly has been looking for new ways to break into the American fashion market. So what would a Gap under Uniqlo regime look like? We have to admit that we’d be interested to find out.

Crave: Cardboard Safari Trophy

We used to have neighbors who were big fans of game hunting. As a testament to their deep dedication to the slaughtering of large animals, their entire sitting room was plastered in mounted animal heads. It was terrifying. The sort of terrifying that makes you wary to knock on their door when you’re selling gift wrap or Girl Scout cookies. Little did we know as we quaked in our Catholic school uniform, hand poised over their boar head knocker, that we were a mere decade away from having a mounted animal head in our own sitting room.

But while their heads were fuzzy and bug-eyed and kind of made us cry, ours is smooth and non-intimidating. This, of course, is because it didn’t come from an animal so much as a tree. Nonetheless, our cardboard deer head is a hell of a lot cooler than their real animal heads, even if we didn’t actually kill it ourselves. The heads come in colors like natural cardboard brown, white, and camo if you’re feeling really adventurous. We spray painted ours bright red for added badassness though.

American Apparel Diversifies Its Offerings With Bedding

American Apparel has been a mecca of hipster clothes since it debuted more than 10 years ago. But how much longer can people continue to wear deep V-neck shirts, gold lamé leggings, and hot pants? The company seems to know that the demand for these products could wane, so they’ve been adding new items to their stable lately. First it was butt-less tights, then scrunchies, and now the company is selling sheet sets. If AA is getting into the home decor business, we have a few ideas for what else they could make with their fabrics of choice. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Chocolate Covered Fashion

Mmm…shoes. Parsons graduate Jamie Chung’s work embodies how we sometimes feel upon seeing an unattainable pair of expensive shoes, of wanting something so perfect, that the desire makes you ravenous. Her ring with a piece of gum for a rock, however, elicits the opposite reaction, making us imagine how we’d feel if someone proposed with a lame ring. Chew on that, sweetie.

How To Go Bleach Blonde (When Everyone Tells You Not To)

Do blondes have more fun? Perhaps. There’s only one way to find out. Yet, most of the time, people will talk you out of a drastic, bleach blonde look. Screw them. If Taylor Momsen can do it, so can you. Here, tips from Julie Dickson, an expert in achieving light hues and owner of the fabulous Fox and Boy Salon in New York City. Keep reading »

Oh Hell No: Denim Tube Tops For Men!

Oh, Jean-Paul Gautier, you never cease to entertain. At his Spring 2010 menswear show the designer has a few of his male models strut down the runway in denim tube tops. While I don’t think this is a trend that will trickle down to the masses, will fashion-obsessed celebs like Kanye West embrace it? Guess we’ll see… [Men.Style.com] Keep reading »

Christian Siriano For Payless 2.0

So, is it fierce enough for you?  Christian Siriano of “Project Runway” fame is continuing his collaboration with Payless Shoes. If you remember, the budget shoe company sponsored Siriano’s spike studded footwear for his fashion show during New York Fashion Week back in February. His runway shoes have inspired his Fall 2009 collection for Payless which will be in stores this August and retail between $30 and $50. Egyptian hieroglyphics are a strong inspiration for the collection which will feature metallic fabrics, chain metal details, and teals and turquoise tones reminiscent of the Nile. Like the designer himself, the shoes sound a bit dramatic — but I think they are actually cute. This teal “Slither” bootie is one of several styles in the range and will retail for $49.99. What do you think? Ferosh or hot tranny mess? Keep reading »
