Instead of putting hats on his models, designer John Galliano had their hair crimped into chapeau-like structures. Don’t try this at home, people. [Christian Dior fashion show; Paris Fashion Week; 9/29/2008] Keep reading »

When I was in high school I butted heads with the evil nuns because I wore patterned tights with my uniform. They said I was a distraction to the other students. After I graduated, they changed the rulebook, making solid color tights the only acceptable hosiery. I still appreciate hosiery that is different, even though I’m older. This season patterned, woven and even sparkly hosiery and footless tights are in style. And now that it’s getting chilly outside, you can wear these stunners with all your dresses, even some of your summer dresses. One of my favorite looks for this time of year is an over-sized Oxford shirt (one that hits mid-thigh) worn with footless tights and heels. I’m absolutely dying for the Falke leggings and the HUE floral leggings below. Tell us in the comments which stunning hosiery you would wear and how you would wear them. Keep reading »
Red lipstick, brown hair, ‘tude-tastic, and she likes to wear feathers — on paper, Kenley from Project Runway sounds like my celeb doppleganger! It was girl crush at first episode. However, as the season has progressed, that brat has broken my heart and now she seems more like my evil twin. Kenley may make ladylike dresses but she has some seriously bad manners. She’s been so rude, I feel betrayed by my style and she’s made me reconsider my love of retro. When Kenley laughed at poor Joe on the runway with her trained poodle protégé, it made me want to puke all over her handmade dress. You know when Tim Gunn has to sit you down for a talk, you better step off. Alas, Kenley thinks she is too cool for the way of the Gunn and just seems to be taking her self-image on a downward spiral. Karma is an even bigger bitch than you, Kenley! Everyone with cable television has seen you in action and just like these Bratz, your day is coming, doll. [Seattle PI] Keep reading »
Our poll earlier today is showing that along with cutting back on restaurant dinners, the state of the economy is forcing you to cease your late-night visits to JCrew.com. But if you love, love, love clothes and are feeling the itch for a new fall wardrobe, try one of these seven shopping alternatives, instead. Your bank account will thank you.
1. Clean Out Your Closet
If you take a Saturday and “merchandise” your closet, i.e., arrange shirts by sleeve length, you’ll feel like you’re shopping at a boutique every morning when you pick out your outfit for the day. Plus, you might find a dress that got pushed to the back of your closet or fell onto the floor and has been in a crumpled ball for the past six months.
