Do Not Want: The Selfie Brush

In case a bad hair day threatens to ruin your photos, the Selfie Brush does double duty as a hair tamer and phone case. That way, you don’t have to bother to put your brush down and then pick up your phone before taking a selfie, which will save you approximately three whole seconds. It also…

Do Not Want: $455 Dolce & Gabbana Jorts For Men

I don’t feel like “Do Not Want” really even captures my gut-level reaction to these $455 jean shorts (jorts, if you’re nasty) for men. “Fuck no, stop triflin'” or “Get the fuck out of here with this nonsense” is more accurate. Jorts — that is, denim shorts that have been hemmed, not simply jeans that have bee…

Do Not Want For Valentine’s Day: Make-Out Practice Pillow

“When I was in middle school, everyone joked about making out with pillows for practice,” said Emily King, the designer who created the Make-Out Practice Pillow. “I’m assuming that I was not the only one for whom the jokes had some truth.”

Emily, who was inspired to make the pillow with a mouth…

Do Not Want: Hideous & Expensive Teva-Esque Sandals Are In For Spring

When I look out the window right now, I see snow blanketing New York City, further sign that Punxsutawney Phil wasn’t joking when he saw his shadow and predicted four more months of winter. And while I am longing for the warmer temperatures of spring, one thing is giving me pause. The fact that, according to…

Fashion Quiz: Trendy Overalls Or Chest Waders?

One of the items shown above is a pair of petite faux leather overalls from ASOS. The other is a pair of men’s rubber chest waders from Amazon. Can you tell which is which? I’m still trying to figure it out…

Do Not Want: This Pentagram Garter (And The Tan Lines That Come With It)

I’m very intrigued by the new wave of accessories that has cropped up specifically to cater to teenage hipsters attending music festivals (I’m looking at you, giant floral crowns and crocheted bikini tops). Fanciful garters and other thigh decorations meant to be paired with super short shorts are another trend in this category. Pretty sure…

Kanye West “Designed” A $120 White T-Shirt, Because Of Course He Did

See this white T-shirt here? I bet you thought it was just a standard plain white tee you’d get in a Hanes 3-pack, didn’t you? Siiiiiiiigh. Could you be any less fashion savvy? This is obviously a “hip hop t-shirt,” designed by Kanye West in a collaboration with French fashion brand A.P.C. It’s made of…

Do Not Want: If You Insist On Wearing This To The Beach, I’m Probably Going To Laugh At You

This here is a $295 beach cover up from Haute Hippie. I imagine this sort of thing would look totally appropriate if you’re sunning yourself on a billionaire’s private yacht off the coast of Ibitttttha. But for the 99.9999 percent of the rest of us for whom that seems a distant prospect, this “beach cover-up”…

Do Not Want: The Stand-Perfectly-Still-Or-Else Swimsuit

This swimsuit, which appears to be constructed out of either large keychains or discarded 6-pack rings, balances on your boobs so precariously that if you don’t stand perfectly still in the exact pose this model is in, I’m pretty sure it will just pop off. I’ve seen plenty of swimsuits that aren’t meant for actual…

Do Not Want: Michael Kors Has No Idea How Much Things Should Cost

This busted, ’90s-inspired, rhinestone-covered, I-could-probably-get something-comparable-for-$9.99-at-Capezio’s body suit by Michael Kors is priced at $5,450. That is all. [Yoox]…

These “Ultra-Distressed” Sneakers Cost $2,000 (Yes, Really)

Remember when Converse started selling pre-scuffed sneakers for $65 and I thought it was the dumbest thing ever? I take it back. I take it all back. Go buy all the dirty Converse you want. They’re a great deal compared to these stained, rusted, worn-out (but technically still “new”) sneakers from Italian brand A Diciannoveventitre…

Do Not Want: Topshop’s $65 “Mom Jeans”

Dear Topshop, I’m not sure why anyone would willingly purchase a pair of mom jeans, but I think everyone knows that an authentic pair can be procured at any Kohl’s or Kmart for much, much less than the $65 price you’ve slapped on these acid-washed, tapered, high-waisted monstrosities. Seriously. Make it stop. [Bleach Acid Mom…

Do Not Want: Sweaty Chest Hair Sweater

One of the worst things about normal sweaters is that they cover up the glistening, hairy man chests that the world deserves to see. Firebox’s “70s Hairy Chest Sweater” solves that problem in truly horrifying style, with a printed image of a naked torso, complete with shiny belly hair and a gaudy necklace. This polyester…

Do Not Want: Zara’s Saggy Swimsuit Dress

This “pinafore dress” from Zara is reminding me of one of those old-timey bathing suits from the 1800s, which is reminding me of the episode of “Seinfeld” where Newman wears one of those bathing suits while yelling “Olly olly oxen free!” and cannonballing into a pool, which is a lovely memory, but not really a…

Do Not Want: Barbie Boob Necklaces

If I work really hard, I can almost convince myself that these Barbie boob necklaces are funky and irreverent and cool, but then I remember they’re made from disembodied doll parts, and get creeped out. If that wasn’t bad enough, I can only imagine that adding a second pair of boobs to my chest area…

Do Not Want: Dripping Crotch Tights

If you’ve been searching for the perfect pair of tights that will go with any outfit and make you look like you have a large amount of black tar seeping out of your nether regions, well, look no further! German brand URB has a whole section of melting hosiery to fit your needs. [Boing Boing]…

Do Not Want: Spider Sandals

I am known for being cool, calm and collected under duress. But that all goes out the window when duress involves a spider. Especially a big spiders. Growing up, sometimes you’d open a closet and there’d be a big one with long hairy legs staring right back at you. So I have to say these…

Do Not Want: Shower Coach 5-Minute Shower Timer

I am what one might call a leisurely bather. If one wished for some reason to paint me in a less flattering light, “bathroom hog” may or may not be the term best used to describe my habits. I can say with all honesty that I have never taken a shower in under 20 minute…

Do Not Want: Charlie Chaplin Camel Toe Leggings

“Charlie Chaplin Camel Toe”: hipster band name or brutally honest description of these leggings? Probably both, but for right now let’s focus on these leggings, which I’m pretty sure I’ve seen before in a fever dream I had in 10th grade. So upsetting. [$30, ROMWE]…

Do Not Want: A Flip Flop And Heel, All In One

I understand that as a shoe designer, you have a limited number of shapes to work with. A foot is a foot is a foot, after all. But for the love of Michael J. Fox, please don’t ever let this weird shoe hybrid happen again. It’s as if the two competing footwear trends for mid-’90…
