And The Prize Goes To … The Best Way To Mix Trends And Classic Pieces

Last week, we asked you to tell us how you mix trends and classic pieces into one fabulous wardrobe, in the hopes of winning a $500 gift card from LuLu’s. And like us, many of you are forging your own fashion paths, choosing trends that work or speak to you and picking up vintage pieces that give an air of nostalgia. Fashion is all about fun, but it helps to have a strategy, which is why adriennesublime won the prize for giving us a whole formula for deciding whether to purchase trendy and classic pieces.

A First Look At Janie Bryant’s “Mad Men” Collection

Though Janie Bryant’s “Mad Men”-inspired collection for QVC isn’t set to launch until the end of September, a few preview pictures just hit the internet in order to fuel our desire to dress like Betty Draper. Of the five items, there’s a selection of two jackets — one of which is reversible — and a variety of accessories, all ranging in price from $25.50 to $107. Between the pill box hat, scarf, jacket, and purse, one thing’s for sure: Janie’s already infused a healthy amount of animal print in the line. And while the selection doesn’t include the most original clothing items we’ve seen when it comes to ’50s-inspired design, it’s certainly easier to buy new rather than deal with the hassle of cleaning that goes into purchasing vintage.

MAC/Rodarte Responds: They Will Donate A Portion of Proceeds To Crime Victims In The City

We spoke; MAC and Rodarte listened. After my post yesterday about the MAC/Rodarte makeup collaboration which I think tastelessly names new nail polishes “Juarez” and “Factory,” MAC has released a statement to NYMag.com’s fashion blog, The Cut: Keep reading »

Me So Seussy: Converse Does Dr. Seuss-Themed Kicks

There are a lot of reasons to wish you were a kid again. A few off the top of our heads: Nap time, no weird looks when you order a Happy Meal, the potential to become a virtuoso fashion blogger. Also—the awesome new kicks from Converse styled after Dr. Seuss books and characters. You’ll recognize the illustrated designs from some of your favorite childhood storybooks (it’s nice to know that some things never change, right?). There’s a “One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish” style, a “Thing 1, Thing 2″ pair, a Cat in the Hat design, and more. Yup, most of the sneakers are for kids, but a couple do fit grown-ups if you want to spend a day taking a walk in a kid’s shoes. [Converse via L.A. Times] Keep reading »

Weekend Wear: Kim Kardashian’s Running Errands Look

Even though running errands is a tedious task, I really love the sense of accomplishment I feel after finishing everything with spare time left in the day. Some might think there’s no need to look pulled-together for running errands, but I beg to differ. Not only will a comfy and cute outfit put you in a better mood on a Saturday morning, it will also get you the service you deserve. Check out the outfit Kim Kardashian wore to the cleaners recently. She probably put this on because she knew the paparazzi would be around. But the look also sends a hidden message to her dry cleaner — treat this woman’s clothes well because they mean a lot to her. Find out how you can get a similar look to Kim’s for your errand-running days, which might include lunch at a cute cafe. Keep reading »

Forever 21 Is Launching A Brian Lichtenberg Collection

The name Brian Lichtenberg might not ring any bells for you, but you’d probably recognize at least one of his designs. Lichtenberg was the genius behind Lady Gaga‘s caution tape ensemble in the “Telephone” video — yes, I too thought Gaga had simply wrapped herself in caution tape, but apparently not. And now he’s bringing his distinctly L.A. look to the masses through Forever 21, which is trying to shed its image as a designer copycat. Forever 21 is taking its first step as a designer resource with a designer who some may feel is a little too difficult to wear unless you’re Gaga, Kim Kardsashian, or Lindsay Lohan — people who feed off attention and publicity. But Lichtenberg says the youthful and more mainstream collection retains his aesthetic yet also caters to the more feminine Forever 21 shopper. Keep reading »
