Photoshop Fail: Urban Outfitters Dress Defies The Laws Of Physics

Obviously, Urban Outfitters is an affordable trendsetting retailer, but did you know they are also MAGICIANS? Photoshop Disasters came across this image on Urban’s website in which the model dons Silence & Noise’s Ikat Dress whilst hovering. That is some David Blaine s**t right there. But seriously, Urban, I would have thought that dress was… More »


Treat Your Feet To Some Angora

Plain cotton socks just don’t cut it in the winter; once they get wet, either from sweat or snow, they stay wet. And wet feet lead to cold feet. Wool socks, however, still provide insulation even when wet, guarding against hypothermia. But since we like our clothing to be as fabulous as it is functional,… More »

Urban Outfitters Mood-Changing Lipstick Takes Me Back To Childhood

When I was in sixth grade, I bought a lime green mood-changing lipstick for $1.25. It painted my mouth a heinous hot pink. I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup at the time, but I think my mom let me wear it as a punishment because it was so horrible.

So you can understand… More »


Nice ‘N Nautical Earrings

Fashion falsity #1,434: Nautical goods are for the spring and summer. So very untrue. Sure, they evoke the festive spirit of the warmer months, but we always find that a cute sailor-ly touch here and there can spruce up any old outfit. Try, for example, these simple anchor post earrings from Urban. Pop these on… More »


Thanks, Urban Outfitters, For Making NPR Officially Un-Cool

NPR is a national producer of radio programming that dorks (well, hip dorks) like to proclaim their love for because they think it makes them look smart and cool. And maybe it does.

True NPR fanatics may own apparel or merchandise purchased directly from the organization as a sign of real devotion. We’re sure… More »


Urban’s Ornaments Make Us Giddy For The Holidays

How adorable are these tree ornaments from Urban Outfitters? I don’t even celebrate Christmas and they make me want to decorate a tree. Choose from cutesy food designs of cupcakes, sushi rolls, TV dinners, or a sparkling pickle (this one’s for you, Snooki). Other cheeky items to spruce up your tree include unicorns, beer cans,… More »


Have It Your Way: Urban Now Matches Lipstick To Anything (Yes, Anything)

While the customized movement in fashion makes us think we’re getting something special and personalized, too often it leaves us wanting more (we guess you could call that entitlement). For those who like things “just so,” there’s now Urban Outfitters’ new custom makeup color mail-in program, which is just as awesome as it sounds. Looking… More »


And These Are Urban Outfitters’ “Halloween Costumes”

This Halloween season, American Apparel introduced its “Costume Builder,” which we found out was really just a way to pass off clothes you already wear as a “costume.” Turns out, Urban Outfitters has also launched a halloween shop on its website, and although the offerings are slightly more holiday-appropriate, it’s still a bizarre mix of… More »


Check This Out: Urban Outfitters Brings You International Specialty Labels

Urban Outfitters just got a bit edgier. The retailer has now introduced “Around the World,” a collection of brands from … around the world (if you hadn’t already guessed).

Urban Outfitters Probably Doesn’t Realize This T-Shirt Makes You Look Easy

There is a huge difference in French between “merci beaucoup” (thank you very much) and “merci beau coup.” We’re not sure if Urban Outfitters realized this when they decided to sell this shirt—although, we wouldn’t put it past them considering their past attempt to casually sell t-shirts reading “Eat Less.” If you’re not well-versed in… More »


Go Au Naturale With Your Nails

With all the health concerns regarding beauty products, it was only a matter of time before someone created natural nail polish. That day has come thanks to Urban Outfitters, meaning natural and safe nail polish is readily available for your fingers and toes at the reasonable price of $12. The retailer just added A Beautiful… More »

Urban Outfitters Gets In On The Beauty Game

Urban Outfitters knows that even hipsters need makeup. Following in the general direction of Topshop, the retailer has launched a mega online beauty shop.

Urban Outfitters Wants You To “Eat Less”

Wants to add “Obama/Black” to the Crayola box,
Suggests it’s up to men to “preserve” their daughters’ virginity,

You know what I want? Urban Outfitters to STFU. [via Hug Party] … More »

Urban Outfitters Necklace Closely Resembles Indie Design

Urban Outfitters’ rib cage necklace (right) bears a striking resemblance to indie designer Lillian Crowe’s rendition (left), doesn’t it? The designer, who debuted the bone jewelry last March, thinks so and she’s trying not to be pissed. The fashion industry would have stalled and died a long time ago if designers couldn’t “be inspired” by… More »


Put Charles In Charge Of Your Wardrobe

For the hipstertastic dressers out there who came of age in the ’80s, this shirt is for you. With retro stripes and a loose cut, the icing on the cake is a photo of dreamboat (well, maybe) Scott Baio screened onto the chest. OK, so if you don’t love Chachi, you might be appalled by… More »
