Fashion Slideshow: Groovy Tie-Dye

I used to tie-dye Hanes t-shirts at camp every summer, trying to create complex designs with multiple colors of dye. Basically, they turned out really horribly unless I stuck to just two colors. Then I forgot about tie-dying, maybe because I didn’t think it would fit into my “adult” life. But after seeing Drew Barrymore wearing a rainbow swirl shirt, I decided to revisit the psychedelic-ness that is tie-dye with some clothes that are tie-dyed, or inspired by it. And if you don’t feel like spending hundreds on a scarf or thousands on a dress (sorry, it was just too pretty to not include), go buy a box of Rit and follow Jessica’s instructions for a DIY version.

Be Like Cher From Clueless, Only With A Driver’s License

Simcha was a little bummed that the new Clueless video game doesn’t involve matching outfits, like that way-before-its-time computer program Cher uses in the movie. But you can upload photos of your clothes to sites like Weardrobe to keep track of all your stuff. Personally, I think this seems like a lot of work, but it could be useful when you need help remembering your favorite go-to outfits, like this morning, when I woke up an hour late and couldn’t figure out what to wear. Rather than stand in standing in front of my closet pondering apparel options, I could have visited my virtual closet and picked something that worked in the past. Technology can be so useful.

Style On The Street: Acceptable Ankle Love

This gal’s shoes have inspired me to create a slideshow of cute shoes with ankle straps. While I am completely against anklets, even on Rashida Jones (I think it’s her trademark — she wears one in every photo), straps are more than okay. Keep reading »

Crave: Richard Chai For Target

We’ve written about this line before, but Sunday it’s finally here! We have high hopes for this Target collection, despite recent disappointments from Rogan and Jovovich Hawk, mainly because of a few standout items. The colorblock tie dress looks chic for day and night, while the jeweled woven top is an affordable copy of a Chai high-end blouse. Run don’t walk! [$39.99 and $29.99, Target.com] Keep reading »

Jumpsuits As Punishment

Guess Gonzalez, TX, school district didn’t get the memo that jumpsuits are a fashion “do” these days. Kids from 5th grade through high school who come to school dressed inappropriately will be forced to put on a black, school-issued jumpsuit. Sure, it’s a little prison, but with the right accessories, I’d wear it. [CNN] Keep reading »

Crave: Travel Thread Kit

Why have hotels stopped stocking their rooms with little sewing kits? We were recently staying in one that actually charged guests for a few measly pieces of thread and a needle. That’s why it’s good to be prepared for the worst. This travel thread kit actually has eight strands of thread in 21 different colors — that’s 168 pieces of thread. So feel free to tear a shirt, lose a button, or rip a crotch. [$10, Kiosk] Keep reading »

Crave: Grey Gardens

This weekend the Sundance Channel screened the 1976 documentary Grey Gardens, the story of Jackie O’s kooky aunt and cousin living in squalor in the Hamptons, but our cable was acting really wonky so we didn’t get to enjoy it. That made us think, “Why in God’s name don’t we OWN this movie anyway?” Luckily, Amazon has an amazing double-disc box set available, so that no rainstorm and undependable cable provider can ever stand between us and Little Edie and Big Edie again! [$39.99, Amazon.com] Keep reading »

Fashion Slideshow: The ’90s Are Back!

In case the new 90210 and Whitney Houston’s song “Like I Never Left” didn’t already clue you in, we have a shocker — the ’90s are BACK. Now that the ’80s are over for the second time around, it’s time for the 1990′s to finally have a resurgence. I, for one, am pleased. The ’90s were my decade and the comeback of comfy grunge style makes me very very very happy. After the jump, 10 modernized takes on ’90s style. There will be flannel. Keep reading »

Crave: Rad Ronson Romper

In the famous Ronson family, Mark’s got the music, Sam’s got the nightlife, and Charlotte, well, she got the style. From head to high-heeled wedges, her simple and sophisticated glamor make femininity seem as easy as sliding into a onesie. You know a girl’s got talent when she can turn booty shorts into a chic ensemble! And she’s done just that with the blue and white striped romper from her Summer ‘08 Collection. It’s the perfect cotton outdoor activity outfit with those little something extras — the back tie, ballet rouched halter neckline, and button pocket details. Just like her siblings, Charlotte doesn’t miss a beat. She makes us wanna romp up the volume! [$106.40, ShopBop.com]

J.Crew To Sell Vintage Rolex Watches

On Friday, we were perplexed when we came across two product listings on JCrew.com accompanied by photos of Rolex watches. Now that the product information has been updated, it seems that J.Crew is indeed selling luxury timepieces, or at least they will be shortly. While you still can’t add the watches to your shopping bag, both watches‘ descriptions indicate that they’re vintage 14k gold shell models “hand-picked exclusively for J.Crew.” Now, do you think they’ll ever go on sale? A girl can dream. Keep reading »
