Rompers have become a must-have item for beating the sweltering summer heat. This cute and breezy Victoria’s Secret romper pulls double-duty: it works as a cover-up at the beach but is also festively chic for a BBQ at a friend’s house (just add a T-shirt and a little razzle-dazzle). It’s flattering for all body types, and the roomy fit means you can eat as much as you want without fear of a noticeable paunch.
Gwen Stefani, we know you probably paid a lot for that “T-shirt,” but it wasn’t a shirt when Miley Cyrus wore a similar one earlier this year, and it’s not one now. And just to be nice, we won’t comment on your harem jeans. [L.A., 7/17/10] Keep reading »
Guns and fashion have little to do with each other (one would hope), but not according to Google. Today, when we were doing some research on the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America), we came across another CFDA, one that we can safely say has nothing to do with Diane von Furstenberg or Alexander Wang. It’s the Cowboy Fast Draw Association, a shooting group that prefers old fashioned guns from the 1800s. In their own words: “We’re out to capture the feel of the Peacemaker [a gun] in your hand, the smell of holster leather, and the exhilaration of reacting as fast as you dare while remaining cool-headed enough to hit your mark as you compete head to head in classic old west fashion.” Members apparently have to wear a gun holster of a pre-1900s style. Which is kind of fashion-related? Anyhow, yee-haw. [Cowboy Fast Draw Association] Keep reading »
Buying a knock-off is one thing … but making your own knock-off? Try searching for “Louboutin red soles” on eBay, and you’ll find a couple dozen auctions for red adhesive soles in the style of the classic Christian Louboutin touch. Some are being marketed as a product to use as protection for your real Loubs, but it’s also a sneaky way to make your pumps look like the real thing. Would you do this to your shoes? Think it’s a clever or stupid idea? [eBay] Keep reading »
Designed by sisters Danielle and Jodie Snyder, Dannijo jewelry is a rather cool mix of sleek and boho. Necklaces made of crystal stop short of being hippie-appropriate when draped in silver chains and studs, causing us to drool just a little bit. Whether it’s a cocktail ring you want or a necklace that’ll make everyone assume the rest of your outfit is a win as well, these girls have got you covered. Is their stuff for the faint of fashion? No. Should it inspire you to be a little more bold with your style? Definitely. [$695, Dannijo] Keep reading »
