You know how Target tries to make its designer collaborations seem exclusive, but oftentimes only one or two pieces from a given collection are drool-worthy? Well, the super retailer is trying even harder to sell you on the idea that these collaborations offer “luxury” items at an affordable price. Target is partnering with Gilt Groupe, an online shopping site that offers discounts on designer brands, to offer the designer collections before the garments hit Target stores. Keep reading »
An Anya Hindmarch anything is always going to be a bit of a splurge, but we’re kind of obsessed with the bag designer’s new gadgets case. The canvas zip-top pouch has an illustration of Apple ear buds and the word “gadgets” written on the front. Is it just us, or is it sometimes really satisfying to have a bag or storage container that is used for one thing and one thing only? To be honest, we’re not sure we’d buy this for ourselves, but it would make an awesome gift for a best friend. So, hey, best friend, did you know we have a birthday coming up? Hint, hint.

Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.
There’s been a lot of talk lately about Miss Taylor Momsen‘s style. She’s doing the whole rebellious teenager thing, which, to be honest, is cool — we get it.

You have to choose! Keep reading »
The Gap is usually a go-to for our fall shopping, so we were pleasantly surprised to see this Groupon offer land in our inbox this morning: Sign up for the deal and you’ll only pay $25 for $50 worth of merchandise in stores. For those not familiar with Groupon, it’s a sort of local coupon service where retailers and business owners can offer you a deal, but only if enough people participate (or sign up) for the deal.

Pity the high school administrators. Their lives just go so sucky. The fall 2010 look book for Forever 21‘s line Heritage 1981 has more suspenders than a Steve Urkel orgy, including with crotch-hugging lederhosen. Lederhosen? Yes, really. Keep reading »
