Rich People Shop At Kohl’s?

There are two types of wealthy people. Those who go on reality television to show off their private jets and bling and Caribbean estates. And then there are rich people who are also cheapskates, and won't spend money on peculiar things, like clothes. (Come to think of it, Daddy Warbucks did wear pretty much…

6 Items You Should Never Buy Online

It goes without saying that drunk online shopping can get you in all kinds of trouble ranging from the ha-ha kind to the way serious variety. But it's not just when you buy, but what you purchase. While e-commerce has made all of our lives a hell of a lot easier--anyone miss the mall? didn't…

Women Spend How Much Time Shopping?

I love a good fashion study. Though I certainly don't understand math, if the numbers and percentages relate to style, I'll mull over the figures for quite some time. So when I found out that women spend three percent of their disposable income on clothes, I was more than intrigued. In today's fashion-focused scientific…

How Much Of Your Disposable Income Goes To Clothes?

I like to go shopping more than I care to admit. My boyfriend will come home to find me in the midst of new bags, trying on my latest purchases, and he'll utter the same question every time: "Didn't you just go shopping?" But without fail, I'll find a new ring, a new dress, or…

What Men Think When Shopping For Clothes

Men and women behave differently when shopping for clothes. Women tend to take longer than men when picking out their wardrobes. I know, you've never heard this before. However, nobody really addresses the male thought process when shopping. It's different from the way women think, sometimes bizarrely so. Here's a look at what guys think…

How To Shop For A Mid-Weight Jacket

We've officially entered that odd, in-between season where temperatures hover between the mid 40s to 60s and make navigating jacket selection an obnoxiously difficult task. We should be wearing medium-weight toppers, trenches and leathers. Instead, however, I look around and see droves of women in too-heavy woolens and too-light cottons, apparently having decided to ignore…

The Gap, Completely Turned Upside Down

Did April Fool's Day come early or something? While it would have been nice to get that out of the way, this Gap store turned upside down is a prank of its own doing. As part of some quirky marketing for its new loyalty program called Sprize, a Vancouver branch was completely flipped around.

How Much Would You Drop On A Pair Of Sneaks?

Sneakers are supposed to be less expensive than your fancy-schmancy heels, right? Well, it would depend on just how much you want your comfy kicks to make a statement. We already knew that Jimmy Choo was making sneakers, but did you know they were $600 a pop? We have no doubt that the wealthy…

Vivienne Westwood Wants You To Stop Buying Clothes

Most designers would never suggest that anyone quit shopping. After all, their businesses run according to the premise that the public will go out and buy new clothes every season. But that's exactly what Vivienne Westwood wants you to do: stop purchasing things. She has a totally legitimate reason however, as this designer is thinking…

3 On-The-Mark Items From Gaultier For Target

We're (understandably) slightly less excited about cheapie designer collaborations these days. From the shoddy construction and poor fabric quality to the fact that they're always sold-out so quickly and priced to the max on eBay -- it all makes us a little yawny. (Oh, there's also the overkill factor; let us not ignore that one.)…

How Long Could You Last Without Shopping For Clothes?

We've heard of diets where you consume no carbs. We've heard of diets where you refuse sugar and dairy. But this is the first diet we've heard of where a girl's gotta drop, by far, the most delicious of all vices: shopping. Yes, shopping. Since September 2009, nearly 100 women have…

How We Live Now: Debenhams Launches Divorce Registry

With divorce rates on the rise and an increasingly cynical view on lasting marriage, it's a wonder someone hadn't come up with this before—Debenhams, the British department store, has just launched a divorce registry service.

Shop ‘Til You Drop (Weight)

Turns out, a little (or a lot of) shopping could actually be good for you. Well, for your body, not your closet, that is. A new study from the folks at The Skinny Cow (yes, the low-fat flying saucer makers!) says the average woman burns off approximately 48,000 calories a year shopping—shopping for…

Do You Wash New Clothes Before You Wear Them?

OK, so forgive me for missing this crazy-ass "Good Morning America" report last week, but after coming across it today, I could stand silent no more and simply had to share: Turns out, new clothes are so freakin' filthy and disgusting that even I am grossed out by them, and that's saying a lot. Not…
