Check This Out: Urban Outfitters Brings You International Specialty Labels

Urban Outfitters just got a bit edgier. The retailer has now introduced “Around the World,” a collection of brands from … around the world (if you hadn’t already guessed). Included in the mix are some hard-to-find labels and indie designers that will give a curated, international feel to your wardrobe. A few choice examples: Classic Parisian-chic line Le Mont St. Michel, Stockholm’s House of Dagmar, Scandinavian-sleek designs by Rodebjer, and New Zealand collection Stolen Girlfriends Club. The prices aren’t the mass-market values you’re used to at chez Urban, but they’re not all that bad either. (Well, and much less than a trip to Denmark or Sweden.) At the very least, you might find some style inspiration there! [Urban Outfitters] Keep reading »

Shades Made Simple: A Few Rules For Wearing Sunglasses

Even though the leaves are falling and temperatures are cooling down, it’s never the wrong season for sunglasses. I say this as an admitted eyewear addict: the other day a friend of mine shifted slightly in the backseat of my car and was buried in a mini avalanche of sunglasses I’d been hoarding behind her headrest.

“Do you really need to keep mirrored Lolita shades with you at all times?” she asked, picking a hot pink pair out of the pile.

“You never know,” I said. “You just never know.”

Here are my top three rules for the responsible and enjoyable wearing of sunglasses … Keep reading »

Mary-Kate & Ashley Would Prefer To Be Invisible Designers

“[The Row] was something where we didn’t want our names on it. I even went as far as being, ‘OK, who can be the frontman?’ We can make the clothes and someone else can be the frontman’ … Instead, it was more about letting the product speak for itself and us being quiet. It’s five years in, and we’ve stuck to that model.”

— While most celebrity clothing lines are more like modeling jobs with a PR and design team doing all the work, Ashley Olsen tells USA Today that she and Mary-Kate wanted The Row to be non-Olsen-oriented. So modest and humble! [USA Today]

If You Could Wear Your Voice, This Is What It’d Look Like

Ever since you got booed off your high-school talent show for a particularly breathy rendition of “My Heart Will Go On,” you resigned your singing career and spared your friends the embarrassment of your voice at karaoke night. For bad singers who want to look good, there’s now a Berlin-based clothing line that creates personalized prints based on your vocal patterns, and sticks them on sweaters, sweatpants, and basics. A program on the website takes a sound recording and converts the frequencies into edgy, futuristic-looking binary codes. So people can now appreciate the sound of your voice … by being seen and not heard. [Fashioning Tech] Keep reading »

Jane Aldridge Constantly Violated Dress Code—Did Your Outfits Get You In Trouble, Too?

When you’re a teenager and have a closet like Sea of Shoes blogger Jane Aldridge, you’d imagine that the high school halls would be your runway. Turns out, Jane’s dreams were often cut short because she was constantly getting in trouble at school for her fashion choices. In this video (starting around 42 seconds), she explains that “I felt so repressed by public school, how, like, they tried to make every kid the same and if you didn’t wear the same thing as everyone else then you had to go to, like, a special class … I was sent to the office everyday for the shoes I wore.” We admit that we were sometimes reprimanded for violating dress code—although our belly tops and showing bra straps were a far cry from Chanel platform heels.

What about you—were you ever sent to the principal’s office for your high school wardrobe? Did you act out with fashion as a teen? [Stylelikeu] Keep reading »
