Yay, For Striped Shoes!

I have quite a shoe fetish, and whenever I see shoes I like, I automatically begin to style them (in my imagination) with my own clothes. That’s what happened when I saw these Prada spring 2011 shoes. I thought I could wear them with black skinny jeans or a pair of white-washed, distressed jeans. And…

What Do You Make Of The “Midi-Skirt” Trend?

Just as we’ve seen some interesting fluctuation in pant construction over the past year, so too has the skirt, most noticeably with the maxi skirt trend, which came back last spring. Looks like the garment is now taking the middle road as many a Milan runway saw what WWD calls the “midi-skirt,” a not quite…

I Can See Your Bra, Catwalker

The spring 2011 collections are now showing at New York Fashion Week and, according to designer Richard Chai, barely-there sheer shirts and über shellacked hair are all the rage! [9/9/10, NYC]…

Burberry’s Special Edition Rain-Themed Collection—Redundant?

Burberry just launched a small, limited-edition collection based on the theme of rain (April showers, more specifically). The range includes Haymarket checked rain boots, printed umbrellas, trench coats, and a whole mess of small accessories. We have to laugh for a second because if this special line is rain-themed, then what was everything else Burberry…

A Dress For Spring Formal

Welcome to the season of outdoor events with a dress that’ll suit you up for all of them. We’re crushing on this French Connection number (hilariously named the “Wizard Wonder” dress) for its chic simplicity—pure white gets the high-fashion treatment with a structured body and sleek side ruffle. Good for garden get-togethers, patio parties, and…

Diesel’s Spring 2010 Video Lookbook: Proof That Hipsters Can’t Dance

Hipsters are good at a lot of things—looking aloof, posing for American Apparel ads, making food stamps and trying to make raccoon hats cool—but dancing isn’t one of them. Proof comes in Diesel’s spring 2010 video lookbook, which references Goddard’s French New Wave film “Bande à Part.” Please, leave the bad dancing to Goddard’…

Maximize Your Wardrobe Possibilities

Every woman, no matter what her size or height is, needs a maxi dress in her closet. Most, like this Braided Strap Maxi Dress, have an empire waist or a similar effect. So, if you’ve got a little tummy, it will disappear under the dress. Even if you’re short, there’s no reason not to wear…

The Inspiration Board: Vanessa Hudgens’ Sunny Day Wear

Good thing Vanessa Hudgens’ Kool-Aid smile didn’t blind us from peeping her perfect sunny day outfit. She managed to go boho, laid-back, and luxe with this cohesive look. We just had to come up with our own version. Find the buying info below — now that’s something to grin about.

A Stylish Necklace That Opens Bottles

Warm weather is imminent, we swear, and with it comes one of our favorite pastimes: backyard barbecues. If you’re playing host (or want to be a helpful guest), don’t make everyone search the area — or run inside — for a bottle opener each time they need a new drink. Instead, when you put o…

I Hate Dressing For This Time Of Year

As much as I’ve been dying to shed some layers, put away my fabulous vintage red coat, and step out in some killer open-toe shoes, I realize that I hate dressing for this time of year. It’s like relearning how to dress warm and cool at the same time, while also making sure you stay…

This Is The Same Dress?! Why Shopping Online Is So Difficult

A couple weeks ago, JCPenney presented its spring and summer clothes at a fashion show, and after seeing a ruffled pink dress with an expensive Lanvin feel, I thought, “I must have that!” But when I looked at the Allen B. by Allen Schwartz dress on JCPenney’s website (on sale for $49.99), I couldn’t believe…

Crocs We Can Actually See Ourselves Wearing

I may be the most anti-Crocs person you’ll ever meet. So many people wear them — swear by them, even — but I just can’t get behind something functional yet, well, ugly. However, I just took a look at the rubber shoe brand’s new designs, and the appropriately named Lady slingback isn’t bad. They remind…

Skip The Jacket & Opt For A Button-Down Like Sienna Miller

You might have thrown your coat in the closet as soon as the temperature went above 50 degrees, but it’s still not exactly warm outside. We don’t want you to get a cold, so if you absolutely refuse to wear a jacket, make like Sienna Miller and throw a button-down on top of whatever you’re…

An In-Between-Seasons Scarf

It’s around this time of year that a mildly warm day somehow causes people to forget the fact that it’s still cold outside. But we applaud you for making that ambitious effort when you stepped out in just a blazer, and proceeded to shiver your way to work. Still, we get that you’re ready to…

Get Your Chambray On

For us, browsing Delia’s is like looking through a window into our teenage pasts. Remember the joyful day, once a month, when the new Delia’s catalog would arrive in the mail, and you’d carefully circle items and dog-ear pages? Those days may be long gone, but we still get kicks out of browsing the teen-tastic…

Lust-Worthy Loft Drawstring Anorak

It’s not even February yet and we’re already thinking about spring, big time. One of our favorite aspects of changing seasons is finding a new jacket to complement our new fashion outlook, but we hate having to wait to wear said acquisition. This Loft Drawstring Anorak has a wear-it-now/wear-it-later vibe, so it won’t hang i…

Spring Style: Jeggings And Harem Pants Are Here To Stay

It looks like some of the most criticized trends of fall—jeggings and harem pants—are sticking around this spring for another go. Browsing through new merchandise on some of our favorite retailers, we noticed that these styles were widely available, and, in some cases, more prevalent than before. As for harem pants, we assume that Alexander

Gimme, Gimme Twelve By Twelve

Forever 21 has unveiled the new arrivals to the Twelve by Twelve line, and we’re totally smitten. Maybe it’s the styling. Maybe it’s the fact that model Georgie Badiel is the epitome of Parisian chic, despite hailing from Burkina Faso. Or maybe it’s simply the clothes. One thing’s for sure, we’ve got some spending to…

TOMS Shoes Gets Preppy, Adds Wedges For Spring

When TOMS Shoes first came out, I thought they looked weird and wouldn’t put on a pair to save my life (or even to help charitably put shoes on a child, as Toms does with every purchase). But this fall, they released a lace-up version that comes in various wool and canvas fabrics. Finally, a…
