Daydreaming isn’t often encouraged in our fast-paced world. But when you think about it, where would we be as a society without daydreaming? We’d have a lot less inventions, fiction, art, and introspection, that’s where. The Drapey Rêve Tee from J.Crew reminds us to dream a little dream while we’re awake, braving the world. Not only does it have the French word for “dream” scrolled across it, but it’s also striped and has sequins. What a très chic dream!
We’re a week into my experiment in which I use myself as a lab rat to find out what happens when I attempt to eliminate the cellulite on my rear-end and upper-thighs.

On Monday we told you that we’d heard rumors about Google opening some type of e-commerce enterprise. Turns out it was true and the internet giant has just today launched Boutiques.com, a style inspiration-driven fashion search engine. It’s not so much e-boutique as it is aggregator à la Shopstyle.

The site is clean, well-organized, and definitely presents you with overwhelming search results that weed out the junk. Check it out and tell us what you think! [Boutiques] Keep reading »

Which, clearly, you won’t be wearing yourself, but you could use for inspiration. Check out some fashionable suggestions after the jump! Keep reading »
They say you are what you eat, but to photographer Ted Sabarese, you also wear what you eat. For this food-fashion project, the artist collaborated with designers to create clothing (or something like it) out of foods the models said they ate. Could you imagine walking around dressed in a representation of your daily breakfast? (“Can you tell me … do these Eggo waffles make my butt look fat?”)
Also involved in the shoot were former “Project Runway” contestants Daniel Feld and Wesley Nault, who created a stunningly elaborate artichoke leaf gown. Check it and other designs out after the jump. [PSFK] Keep reading »
