Nordstrom is selling this as an oversized feather fascinator, but it looks more like the horrifying aftermath of a tropical bird/human collision to me. In fact, if I saw someone wearing this on the street or at a party, I would instruct them to lie down immediately, check for signs of a concussion, and put in a call to exotic animal control.

Oh my God, you guys. Breaking news. Alexander Wang is making Tevas. Excuse me, Teva-inspired shoes. I have just lost all faith in humanity. I get that when designers gets bored, they take the world’s ugliest things and make them expensive, but I have a hard time picturing anything but sweaty river-waders and/or the boys of my 5th grade class whose uniform was sweatpants and Tevas with white socks.

Hey, thank goodness for Etsy, am I right? Where else would I find scarflets, Scotch Tape wallets — and butt dresses like this glorious one made by LinaSpiroS. It’s like a very sexy Forever Lazy, which, come to think of it, makes it not sexy at all. See the full moon after the jump. [Regretsy]

It wasn’t all immaculately turned out Tilda Swintons and stunning Zoe Saldanas at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. No, there were some terrible fashions, too. And though some of these actresses may have won big at the SAGs, they definitely disappointed on the style front. Click through to find out who sagged at the SAGs.

Mini dresses have been trendy for the past few seasons, but the truth is hemlines have been steadily rising for years. These days leggings are pants and shirts are dresses and it’s all very confusing. That’s where our new feature, “Don’t Show-cha Your Chocha,” comes in. Here we will document the most egregious offenders, from celebrities who seem to have forgotten their pants to models wearing “dresses” that are actually shirts. And we need your help!

We’ve been talking about cute headbands recently and how much they can add to an outfit. This braided chain headband? Not so much. It looks less like a unique accessory and more like a scalping gone awry. I like it when people say “Cute headband,” not “Oh my god are you bleeding?” Awkward.

This is a $148 designer shirt sold at Anthropologie, but if you told me it was a $5 novelty t-shirt sold at a seaside gift shop, I would totally believe you. Like, maybe the back would say “I took a bite out of Laguna Beach” or whatever, and surfer dudes would wear it to show off their sculpted obliques and kooky sense of style. Either way, it’s confusing. [$148, Anthropologie]
