The past year has produced a grab bag of weird technology-driven garments. (See: The iPad dress, the weather reporting gown, and the L.E.D. everything.) Now, reports the BBC, a company called CuteCircuit has created a dress that also doubles as a mobile phone. Due out in 2011, the M-Dress has an antenna in the hem and a microphone in the sleeve (how very CIA).
Now, if you will kindly excuse us, our dress is ringing. [BBC] Keep reading »
A snap of Anna Wintour in 1992 shows that the editor wasn’t quite in Vogue. Plus, we’re pretty sure we saw that same outfit at American Apparel last week. [Magic Molly] Keep reading »
Why do we love wrap dresses? Let us count the ways: 1) they’re expandable and contractible, meaning they work during bloated times and thin days; 2) they always flatter our cleavage region; and 3) more often than not, they’re actually comfortable. Why do we love this wrap dress in particular? Because it features our three favorite wrap dress elements and comes in a great length, cool print and classic colors. What’s not to like?
Clearly, Jane Adridge of Sea of Shoes has never had a roommate who leaves half-eaten bowls of Cocoa Puffs around the apartment for three days. What do you think of her cockroach necklace? Chic or eeeek? [TheyEnvy.us] Keep reading »
While Lindsay Lohan still might be on lockdown, her business goes on. Images have just been released of the 6126 fall campaign (taken, most likely, pre-jail and pre-ankle monitoring device), and umm … well, let us put it this way: Lindsay’s always going on and on about how involved she really is in her line, and these photos make us believe it. Because only a crazy woman would come up with a campaign involving spread eagle positions, lying on the floor with crosses, and generally “dark” photo ops that don’t properly display the clothing at all. What makes the shoot even weirder is how images like these are interspersed with normal solo poses. What gives? Check after the jump to see a few more pics. [Celebuzz] Keep reading »
What to shop come September: Target‘s latest collaboration with Gaby Basora’s line, Tucker. Tucker has been around for a few years now, and is known best for its signature flowy silk blouses adorned with vintage-inspired floral prints, which you’ll find in high end stores like Barneys (meaning we don’t actually own anything by Tucker). On September 12, Tucker for Target will hit stores, and here’s a first look at the collection. We see a slight ’60s back-to-school vibe with the dress and vest combo; something more sleek and ’70s-inspired with the belted pantsuit. What do you think—look like something you’d be into wearing? We’ll be interested to see the full collection once more images have been released! [Nitrolicious] Keep reading »
