“I used to get embarrassed about the fact I liked fashion. I still get a bit cringy. I’d sit at dinner parties and people would say to me, ‘So what do you do?’ and I’d be like, oh design! When I fill passport forms I put ‘design.’ I don’t say fashion. But don’t get me wrong, I love my job!”
– Stella McCartney knows how those who live, breathe, and eat fashion can feel when talking about their profession to, say, a diplomat, or in my case, a journalism professor. [Fashionista] Keep reading »
Please tell us that this Stella McCartney horse shirt makes you feel a little weird, too. I mean, something’s just off about it, right? We tried to give the thing the benefit of the doubt, but every time we were prepared to write it off to quirkiness, there it was, staring at us from another browser window and just making the whole interaction so awkward.

Remember days of the week underwear? (We were the girls who could never get it right and were always wearing Tuesday’s panties on a Thursday. So rebellious.) Stella McCartney has famously brought back the cute idea with her beautiful lace knickers of the week that come in a charming chest of drawers package. Problem is, it’ll cost you $195 to keep your butt covered for seven days. The good news is that Ms. McCartney has done a cheaper version of the fun underthings for Gap. The $38 set features colorful cotton instead of silk but still retains the look and style of the originals. Full disclosure: You’ll find them in the Gap Kids section, which we’ve been known to pick from on occasion. Just look for the L or XL sizes! [Journelle.com, Gap] Keep reading »
Jeggings just got some competition in the “what’s fuglier?” contest. Behold Stella McCartney‘s “denim printed” leggings. They’re part of her line for Adidas, so we assume the idea is that you wear these to the gym? Really?
To get more specific, the description says that these are actually tights, but since they’re footless, we wonder if they’re closer to tights or leggings. This now challenges one of our firm fashion rules: Tights are not pants. But what if your tights are printed to look like pants? Still no. [Adidas.com] Keep reading »
When we heard of Jimmy Choo’s collab with Uggs, we jokingly took a stab at what we thought “Chuggs,” high-heeled fuzzy booties, would look like. Behold Stella McCartney‘s latest footwear creation which, although it looks like the product of a kooky partnership with Birkenstock, is in fact her own doing. The pumps take after the hippie shoes by borrowing signature elements like the leather buckle, molded interior, and cork sole. We’re not sure what Stella was smoking when she designed these, and moreover, why she’d slap a $600 price tag on them. If you’re that into them, why not just stick some twigs in the heels of your earthy sandals? (It’d be more environmentally friendly anyhow.) [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
