This is no April Fool’s Day prank. American Apparel is giving away several items today only. Find the free items (and others that are 20 to 90 percent off) on this page. According to American Apparel, with a minimum purchase of $10, you can select up to five free items, using promo code APRIL1ST. My friend Misha of The Fab Chick and I ordered together so we could split the shipping cost, which was only $15.44. Seriously, we ordered five cotton pencil skirts and paid less than $16 total. That’s a complete steal! But you have to hurry since this promo expires at 11:59 p.m. tonight. Happy shopping! [American Apparel] Keep reading »
It’s really hard to figure out what to wear during the spring months, when the weather can turn from nice to nasty on a dime. That’s why we love Wolf & Harrison’s French Terry Cape, which allows you to brave the elements in a sweet and stylish way. The 100 percent organic cotton cape fills a weird weather niche, but we’re betting you’re going to want to wear it year round — wolf, sheep or whatever you are.
Ivanka Trump is building an empire, just like her father Donald. For her latest venture, she teamed up with Marc Fisher for a collection of shoes that will take you from the office to happy hour to the park or the beach. Ivanka says the shoes are made of the best quality materials, but they don’t have the high, luxury price you’d expect from the Trumps; most of the shoes cost about $125 or $130. Marc Fisher is one of my favorite moderately-priced footwear designers, so it’s no surprise that I like many of Ivanka’s shoes. But what do you think of Ivanka Trump Footwear Collection?

Earlier this week, we asked you to tell us the most ridiculous fashion hybrid item you could imagine, along the lines of jeggings, jorts, shooties, and my contribution to the fashion lexicon, bradigan. The most original and hilarious suggestion would win Gap’s Soft Trench, part of the brand’s spring collection. We’ve picked a winner — read her winning comment after the jump — but the rest of you can still grab a Soft Trench of your own at a steep discount during tomorrow’s Gap Flashion sale. The Soft Trench — normally priced at $89.95 — will be available in stores for a mere $50 tomorrow only. I’m not passing that up! Keep reading »
February fashion mags are already hitting newsstands and even though it’s still the dead of winter, editors are already crowing about the hot trends for Spring 2011. Among them: wedge heels with rope embellishments. Ugh, but how to wear the trend now? These teal round-toe pumps with their subtle jute platform sole are the perfect nod to upcoming warm temperatures, while still being appropriate for the ongoing frigid winter. These babies — a total steal at less than $40 — would look great with tights now and bare legs come May.
We’ve been huge fans of I Heart Ronson, designer Charlotte Ronson‘s junior’s line for JCPenney, since 2008 because it features really cute clothes at affordable prices. The spring collection, slated to arrive in JCPenney stores in February, doesn’t disappoint. There are several sweet dresses and shorts that will fit right in with the basics in your wardrobe already. Look past the over-styling in the I Heart Ronson spring lookbook and you’ll see what I mean. I’m especially in love with the white shirtdress after the jump because it will be perfect on a late spring day. Plus, most of the I Heart Ronson fashions eventually go on sale, making many of the garments less than $30. Check out two more looks after the jump. [The Fabulous Report] Keep reading »
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 even a floral skirt or dress because I love mixing stripes with florals. My only issue with my shoe fetish is that I’m always drawn to the most expensive shoes, like these Prada ones. I can’t be the only one that has this problem. Do you? And what do you think of Prada’s spring shoes? [Style.com] Keep reading »
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 maxi, not quite knee-length variety. Hitting just about mid-calf, the midi-skirt at first would have reminded us of conservative, vintage styles were it not for the bright patterns and fun attitude that Dolce & Gabbana, Versus, and Moschino Cheap & Chic chose to insert into their designs. What do you think of this skirt trend? Something you’d rock in the spring? Or too awkward a length to balance correctly? [Style] Keep reading »
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] Keep reading »
