A Ball And Chain We Can Live With

Every once in awhile, Banana Republic takes its fashions out of the boardroom, and we’re blessed with a gem like the Ball and Chain Stud. The chains provide a tough counterpoint to the refined glass pearl, so you can wear these with the most ladylike of dresses and the hardest leather jackets. Yet there’s something so simple about these stud earrings that they’ll be your go-to adornment, even if you have to step back into the boardroom.

What The Hell Are “Treggings”?

There’s leggings. There’s jeggings. So what the hell are “treggings”? It belies my maturity level when my first guess was “triceratops leggings.” But no, treggings are a cross between leggings and trousers. A hybrid, if you will. Treggings are formfitting from the thighs to the legs, but are more structured on top and often have a zipper. Personally I would just call these “tight pants,” but what do I know?

Anyone else think the cutesy names for various types of leggings are getting silly? [FabSugar] Keep reading »

Cheapskate: Workout Wear From $6

When it comes to working out, you’ll usually find me in a large random T-shirt and a pair of leggings that aren’t nice enough to really wear as an outfit.

Bloomingdale’s Has Just The Dress For Your Wonky Elbow!

Sometimes I think Jezebel is a little too anal in their war on Photoshop (for example, I disagree that Rolling Stone gave the women of “Mad Men” “brand new torsos”); however, sometimes the blog hunts down some truly gross examples of retouching gone wrong. Like this photo from Bloomingdales.com of a model wearing a Diane Von Furstenberg dress which, apparently, is the height of fashion for women with bizarrely dislocated elbows. Yikes!

H&M Scores Lanvin Collab In What Is Probably The Biggest High-Low Coup Yet


The speculation and rumors have been confirmed. Lanvin will indeed be designing a collection for H&M, due in stores November 23. Although H&M wasn’t planning on disclosing the answers to their mysterious designer interview videos, the interwebs went nuts after guessing that one video featured Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz, so the retailer released a clip revealing Elbaz’s face. In the video, the he says, “When H&M approached us to do this collaboration, they asked if I could actually translate the dream that we created at Lanvin to a bigger audience. It wasn’t a project about a dress for less … I loved the idea that H&M is going luxury rather than Lanvin is going public.” Interesting. Does that mean we can expect price points to be higher than normal for H&M? Keep reading »
