If you’re anything like us, you know that sinking feeling of forgetting to pack a crucial item for a trip all too well. And, come summer time, the most commonly forgotten item is a swimsuit. Whether you grabbed two tops and no bottoms, forgot one altogether or belatedly realized that maybe you should have tried on your new suit rather than assuming it would fit, it’s all bad news bears. Luckily, The Standard Hotel in New York and Quicksilver have you covered. For the second year, the hotel is collaborating with the swim/surf brand to offer poolside swimsuit vending machines. This season, however, you’ll also have the option of buying sunglasses and sunscreen from the uber-convenient, laziness-inducing machines. It almost makes us want to leave those swimsuits behind. Is this something you’d like to see replicated at hotels around the country? [Transworld Business] Keep reading »

We love it when girls steal their boyfriends’ clothes (or shop in the men’s department), because there’s something subtly sexy about taking masculine clothes and putting them on a woman. This cozy organic cotton V-neck achieves that look with its screen-printed nod to a bow-tie that’s come undone. And you can feel good about buying one — a portion of the sales from Quiksilver’s eco-friendly apparel goes to E.P.I.C., an organization that helps bring clean water to villages in Tanzania.
We’re giving away five small Quiksilver Eco-Friendly V-Neck Tees, but you have to work if you want a shirt. The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, Nov. 21 through Thursday, Nov. 27 — will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Remember how Amelia got all excited about the new Quiksilver women’s collection? Well, it’s finally available! The clothes make me want to go back-to-school shopping (back-to-work shopping? Fall wardrobe shopping? We need a new name for this). I can see myself wearing the first dress with just a vintage belt until it gets cooler, then layering with a shirt underneath and cardigan on top after the first frost. I am also into the Nora Tank. Would it be wrong to own a dress and a tank made from the same fabric?
P.S. I got a sneak preview of Quiksilver’s holiday collection yesterday, which comes out in September, and it is equally cute. Keep reading »
So I’m flipping through Lucky this morning, which is normally filled with clothes I totally can’t afford (seriously, a $700 shirt guys?), when I noticed a blurb about Quiksilver. You know, the surf clothing company? Apparently they’ve hired a new designer and she’s taking their women’s street wear line in a totally new, awesome direction. Check out the look above, plus a few others after the jump. Catherine, who is out of the office today, is totally going to go ape&%$# for that tie-neck dress. The line won’t start becoming available until mid-July, so mark your calendars. If that dress sells out though, we will know who to blame! [Quiksilver.com] Keep reading »
