Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

We understand that since American Apparel is having financial troubles, the company might try to get creative with its ways to push merchandise. A product of this is perhaps the Costume Builder you’ll now find online. Except … it would appear that American Apparel’s idea of a “Halloween costume” is shockingly similar to the outfits the retailer normally peddles (which, to some, may indeed be quite scary). Above, you’ll find costumes for a “Disco Chick,” an “Archaeologist,” and a “Slumber Party” (which apparently can be manifested as a person wearing a scrunchy). To be fair, some of the other styling suggestions are a bit more traditional, like the hula girl, bumble bee, and pirate. So it might not actually be such a bad idea if you’re in need of a last-minute or easy costume and want to be able to wear it again–unless you cut it up like a lot of the themes encourage.
One of fashion’s most despised accessories: the fanny pack. The purse-alternative accessory seems to come and go, sometimes ironically, sometimes in seriousness. It’s been a while since we spotted one, but today we came across a Zambos & Siega python print version as well as a Rebecca Minkoff studded model. These pouches seem to add an edge to the style, making the look a bit more luxe, rocker-esque, and bad-ass. Think we can expect to see the fanny pack return as a winter trend? Would you be ready to saddle up with one? [Shopbop, Kitson] Keep reading »
Oh, if only we had $200 for shoes we don’t need. Gap‘s latest collaboration with Pierre Hardy brings us these fierce black suede peep-toe wedges trimmed with leather. The latest Gap/Pierre Hardy collab is just one of many the store has put out lately, including Vena Cava, Stella McCartney, Keds and the (alleged) Valentino collab yet to come. Retail price on these bad boys, $195, is a tad high even for a high/low collaboration, but they’re versatile enough in the fall and winter months to make it worth it. I’d wear these with black tights and a brightly colored dress. And you? [Style.com] Keep reading »
Oh Halloween. The perfect excuse for women to dress up like sexy aardvarks and men to dress up like total sleazeballs.
