When “Clueless” heroine Cher Horowitz declared, “You try driving in platforms,” we’re guessing she may have been wearing these Jeffrey Campbell platform sneakers, which, we presume, Campbell designed by putting a pair of Adidas on steroids. In fact, we can think of a whole number of activities these 4.5-inch shoes would limit you from doing including climbing up stairs, square dancing, standing, and, um, walking. Although, one intrepid shopper does comment on Urban’s site, “OMG. So I bought this pair of shoes to go to the gym because I wanted to look stylish. You would not believe the attention I received because of this pair of ah-mazing shoes. Yowza. My friends are super mega jealous and like they totally want to buy them. Coolness. Super comfy and tres chic!” [Urban Outfitters]
I’m going to Mexico at the beginning of May, so I’m starting to keep my eye peeled for a new swimsuit for my trip. I have yet to find a bikini that I really want, but I have come across a whole mess of swimsuits that would get me more than a few looks on the beach. It seems that some swimwear designers these days aren’t creatively inspired by simple batik prints or bright colors — no, they’re into the Animal Kingdom (and I don’t mean classic cheetah prints), bones, and body parts, amongst other non-traditional influences. You know … so edgy! Click on to see 17 swimsuits I simply do not have the balls to wear.

Sure, you could spend $990 on this T-shirt by Thakoon, BUT YOU’D BE AN IDIOT! Sorry, I don’t mean to yell, but this T-shirt isn’t pooping diamonds, so I can’t understand why it costs so much. Do you? [$990, Shopbop]
Adrienne Bailon was a member of the Cheetah Girls. She also dated Rob Kardashian. Now she fancies herself a fashion designer, as this strange frock is something she made herself. From curtains and a sheer bodystocking? It’s unclear, but the jacket is a nice touch. [via Dlisted]
