If you, like me, are deeply obsessed with “Game of Thrones,” then perhaps Tumblr A Game of Clothes is for you. Combining two of my fave passions––fashion and “GoT,” Game of Clothes offers up runway looks that wouldn’t be out of place in Westeros. Writes the unnamed keeper of the blog fire, “After watching the first season of Game of Thrones I had to read the books, and I loved the descriptions of outfits and locations through out the series so much, that I have collected what I think the characters of A Song of Ice and Fire would wear and live.” Keep reading »
I gave away three-quarters of my sunglasses when I moved, but I still have a substantial
hoarding problem collection. If you love sunglasses as much as I do, then you know they’re not just accessories, but works of art that deserve to be displayed! Looking for a fun way to store (and show off) your sunnies that doesn’t involve tossing them on the coffee table? Click on the gallery for 7 cute, easy DIY ideas…
It’s pretty clear that Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries is a raging douchebag. Aside from the sexist and elitist (oh and we forgot, ableist) practices the company’s been found guilty, Jeffries most recently came under fire for his absolutely ridiculous sizing policies. You see, A&F only produces women’s clothing up to a size 10, because, as Jeffries so pleasantly notes, “In every school, there are the cool and popular kids, and then there are the not-so-cool kids. We go after the popular kids.” Okay, first off, it’s embarrassing that a 60-year-old man would use a high school analogy to describe his business model. Nevermind that A&F’s heyday was, like, 2006 or something, Jeffries is pretty blatantly King of the D-bags, yes? Keep reading »
It’s 10AM and your stomach is growling. You could rifle through your traditional paper lunch bag to sneak a bite of your sandwich, or, if you’re wearing this ingenious Ziploc jacket, you could just unzip the pocket under your armpit. Want some chips? No worries, they’re conveniently stored below your boob. Apparently the brilliant designer of this stylish snackovation is known only as Diana (her friend posted the photo to Tumblr), but I’m pretty confident we’ll get to know her better when she inevitably shows up on “Project Runway” (or perhaps a spinoff called “Project Lunchway”?). Til then, I’ll be in the kitchen with a glue gun trying to make a knockoff version of this awesome jacket. [Grist]
The fabulous Mindy Kaling wore this beautiful blue and green combo to the Fox Upfront Presentation yesterday. I wasn’t able to find exact matches for her dress and belt, but this sapphire dress is so lovely, and we all know mirrored metallic pumps go with everything. Read on for shopping details so you can steal the plus-size version of this colorful look! Keep reading »
I’ve been anticipating summer for months now, but this time, I think it actually is almost here. As the temperature inches ever closer to 80 degrees and sunny, I’ve been casting a critical eye on my beach style. This year, it’s time for a reboot. I’m ready to purge the limp sundresses and faded bathing suits in exchange for something fresh and new. I’m taking my cues for beach style from the people who do it best. Click through for a look at celebs who are really turnin’ it out.
A while ago, I told you about how some celebrities actually call the paparazzi on themselves, in order to stay in the press and garner attention. That’s why every Halloween you’ll see garish pictures of say, Courtney Stodden picking out pumpkins in 8-inch lucite heels or Farrah Abraham taking a solitary, sad, sexy walk on the beach.
And then there’s Phoebe Price. Phoebe Price is a regular punching bag for gossip blogger Michael K. over at D-Listed, and he’s very, very cruelly funny about it, referring to as Chicken Cutlets. She is constantly being photographed by paparazzi and was voted by K and his D-Listed readers as 2007′s Hot Slut of the Year, a dubious honor that we’re not entirely sure Phoebe understands.

Most of us have a stack of cheap bangles from Forever 21 that were, like, 50 for $1, but sometimes it’s nice to invite some higher quality, more unique pieces to our arm parties. The solution? Etsy, of course! Whether your style is more hammered gold or rainbow hemp, click through to check out 10 vintage or handmade bangle sets from Etsy, at prices to fit every budget!
It’s not yet Memorial Day, the traditional time when it’s apparently okay to wear white again. Where or how this stupid tradition began, I don’t know, but I do know that I’ve been completely indoctrinated into it, and won’t wear white before the end of may. Fine, I’m a weirdo (also, I will totally get anything white dirty, quick). But there’s a ton of celeb ladies who are eschewing the old ways, and freely flaunting white gowns and dresses. Just last week, in fact, we saw Michelle Rodriguez, Chloe Sevigny, Joely Richardson, Mariska Hargitay and Julianne Hough all stepping out in gleaming white. But who wore it best? You tell us!

“We could put a special tag on each piece of clothing, saying: ‘From the happy workers of Bangladesh, with pleasure. Workers’ well-being guaranteed.’ When consumers saw that a well-known and trusted institution had taken responsibility to ensure both the present and the future of the workers who produced the garment, they wouldn’t mind paying 50 cents extra.Consumers would be proud to support the product and the company, rather than feeling guilty about wearing a product made under harsh working conditions.”
–In an op-ed piece for The Guardian this weekend, Bangladeshi economist and Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus sketched out a solution to the garment industry crisis that was brought to the world’s attention in the most jarring, tragic way when the collapse of Rana Plaza became the deadliest incident in the industry’s history… Keep reading »
