How To Waltz Through Summer Puddles

When it’s hot and raining, the last thing you want to do is stuff your feet into a pair of calf-suffocating Wellies. Perfect for flash downpours in summer: Slow and Steady Wins the Race’s water-repellent pumps. They give you a sexy three inches and a vixen-y color while keeping your feet dry thanks to a nylon shell. For $100, the price is absolutely right. And we bet they’d work just as well in the snow. Although that shouldn’t stop you from wearing them on a completely dry day, too.

Nike Confirms “My Butt Is Big” Ad Is A Fake

You called it, Jezebel. The “My butt is big” Nike ad the blogosphere has been buzzing about all week is actually a fake. Jezebel and AdAge.com, an advertising industry blog, checked with Nike and Nike’s agency, who confirmed it’s bootylicious, but it’s not real! Instead, it’s just a canny knock-off of Nike’s actual 2005 “My butt is big” ad campaign. I guess I should have been suspicious that the fake ad spelled the word “embassador” with an “e” instead of the more common spelling with an “a.”

Do You Need A $2,780 Face Corset?

Ahem, the corset, which restrains your neck and chin, “visualizes the strengths of wealth and a prosperous family/background,” according to designer SchipperArques. How many seconds until Lady Gaga is sporting one on a deli run? [Ferohhhsh] Keep reading »

Double Take: J.Crew Sells What?

We’re not ashamed to say we’re huge J.Crew fans. But from time to time, we come across stuff on the website that just shocks us and makes us think, What happened to our friendly, affordable, prepster retailer? Like this fuzzy purse, which first off, doesn’t look like your average J.Crew offering (we at first thought it was ghastly, but now we maybe think it’s absolutely fabulous). Closer inspection reveals that it’s a tote made of Mongolian lamb fur and costs a whopping $795! Here is our official plea to meet the person who has put in an order for this. We are dying to meet you. And maybe stroke your handbag. [J.Crew] Keep reading »

Check This Out: Rules Of A Gentleman Blog

Guys never learn. Or maybe they do? If you’ve noticed your man shaping up and becoming classier lately, perhaps it’s because he’s been reading our new favorite blog, The Rules of a Gentleman. Each day, a new tip or rule about gentlemanly behavior or lifestyle is posted. We love some of the old world-y suggestions, like number 34, “Cufflinks when appropriate are never optional,” or number 28, “Opening the door for a lady is not optional, and will never go out of style” (Andy Rutledge). Perhaps our favorite rule: “Items that shouldn’t match = Watch, belt, slacks, socks and shoes.” Damn straight. Now go and learn something. [The Rules of a Gentleman] Keep reading »

Cheapskate: Hayden-Harnett’s Summer Sale

Amelia turned me on to Hayden-Harnett last year, and I’ve been hooked ever since. This super cool Brooklyn brand has tough leather and nylon bags, retro-style swimsuits, and edgy fashions. And while we’d love to go on a Hayden-Harnett shopping spree once a month, our inner financial planner warns us not to. Instead, we just check back often for the super sales that occur frequently throughout the year. Right now, Hayden-Harnett is trying to move its summer merchandise, which means you can snap up rompers, maillots, and clutches for a tiny fraction of the original price. But you must act fast because sizes are limited. Find the items that we want in our closets right now, after the jump, and be sure to check out Hayden-Harnett for yourself. Keep reading »
