Study Shows That French Guys Have A Lot Of Clothes

French men are very well dressed. (Take it from me, someone who lives in Paris and often feels like she’s walking in a living version of Sartorialist heaven.) They also just know things about fashion in the way that American guys just know things about football or Mila Kunis. A new study further proves that… More »


Girl Talk: Everyone Should Have A Retail Job At Least Once

I’ve never known how to properly fold a shirt. My dressers have always been an orgy of unorganized clothes—sweaters and socks spilling out of drawers—because my approach has always been to ball everything up, which is not really a great way to organize or prevent wrinkles. That all changed after my first day working in… More »


Money 101: Top Online Money-Saving Sites And Tools

The way we shop now: via virtual window browsing, electronic payments, and clicks of a button. Which is great for making things easier, but it also means you may become less discerning about your purchases.

My Two Cents: 8 Tips That’ll Save Any Shopaholic

I, Simcha Whitehill, am a recovering shopaholic. It all started back in the day, when I was a suburban mall rat. My BFF in middle school lived a block from the indoor bonanza. (Coincidence? I think not!) By high school, I had to get an after-school job at a real estate office just to support… More »


Need Another Online Shopping Site? Maybe.

Between Gilt Groupe, ideeli, Rue La La, and The Outnet, the web is clogged with newsletters, online shopping sites, and exclusive deals, but pretty soon another one will be added to the masses. A former retail exec, Cecilia Pagkalinawan, and venture capitalist, Jim Robinson IV, have hatched a plan to launch StyleTrek, which aims to… More »


Eley Kishimoto For Anthropologie Looks Like Maternity Wear

We love an Anthropologie designer collaboration as much as the next girl, but the newly released Eley Kishimoto collection is a dud. Cheaper fabrics don’t seem to do justice to Eley Kishimoto’s usually cute prints and shapes, and all the clothes veer pretty intensely towards maternity wear. The line is available in the U.K. and… More »


A Storefront In NYC For Only $7 A Day!

Have you always dreamed of opening up a store in a trendy neighborhood? Do you have $7? If you answered yes to both of these questions, your dreams may very well be on the cusp of coming true, albeit in a half-assed sort of way. Shopping Box, a new store in New York City’s Soho… More »


Worth The Splurge: Something Sparkly From Gryphon

Designers do different, very specific things well. Burberry, for example, knocks it out of the park with coats, yet charges almost $300 for an ill-fitting polo. When it comes to well-executed sparkles, Gryphon is queen. Yes, they sometimes overdo it — as people who are into shiny clothes are wont to do — but they… More »


Which Mass Retailer Does Whitney Port Shop At?

As one of the more controversial retailers out there, you may live in denial that Walmart could ever produce anything classy. (Having Miley Cyrus design a line doesn’t quite help the image, though we do love Norma Kamali’s offerings at the store.) This may change with the help of Whitney Port, who was spotted wearing… More »


Net-A-Porter Sells Out Of $6,000 Alexander McQueen Dress—How Much Will You Drop Online?

When Net-A-Porter started up in 2000, it seemed doubtful that people would buy premier designer goods off the internet, sight unseen. But the times, they did change, and now we’re all online shopping. However, it still seems shocking to us that shoppers drop thousands of dollars through e-commerce sites. For example, this famous Alexander McQueenMore »

NYU Students Dream Up Your Next Shopping Addiction

Watch out, Gilt Groupe. There’s a new sample sale site launching and fashion lovers will be just a teensy bit obsessed with it for one major reason.

5 Lies We Tell Ourselves While Shopping

When we’re out shopping and a shirt catches our eye, we’ll tell ourselves anything to justify buying it, even when we already have at least 25 other perfectly good tops hanging in our closet. We’ll find a way to convince ourselves to make a purchase seem practical if we want it badly enough. What lies… More »


Will The iPad Change The Way We Shop?

Post-iPhone fashion app boom, retailers are now focusing on iPad-specific applications for the new Apple product. And some believe that the device is about to revolutionize the way we think about fashion and shopping. For starters, the idea of mobile shopping may become more palatable. Are you really going to buy a $500 Marchesa gown… More »


Study Shows Violent Fashion Ads “Lure” Consumers, But Is That All?

So, 2008 and 2009 saw some of the grossest, bloodiest, most violent fashion ads of all time. To refresh your memory, Duncan Quinn once depicted mobsters torturing female bodies, Alexander McQueen placed models on a bed of snakes, and Marc Jacobs dangled women out of buildings. (Drastic recessionary action?)

While things have quieted… More »


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 the… More »

While e-commerce has made all of our lives a hell of a lot easier–anyone miss the mall? didn’t… More »


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 research,… More »
