Quickies: Amy Winehouse Is Back In Rehab & Miley Cyrus Hates On Urban Outfitters

  • Amy Winehouse downed vodka before checking back into rehab at The Priory in the UK this morning. Get well soon, Amy, because you’re so talented. [PopEater]
  • Snooki may be busy filming “Jersey Shore” in Italy as we speak, but she’s apparently laying off the pasta. Snook’s new focus on health includes eating healthy foods, regular exercise, and taking a fat burner called Zantrex prior to working out. No word on whether pickles and binge-drinking are also off-limits. [Socialite Life]
  • The actor who played Kenicke in “Grease,” Jeff Conaway, has died at age 60 after being put in a medically-induced coma following a drug overdose earlier this month. [TMZ]
  • What do we think of boudoir photos? You know, sexy pics taken of the bride before her wedding? [TresSugar]

Urban Outfitters Steals Another Indie Artist’s Work … Again

Jewelry artist Stevie Koerner sells her “A World of Love” pendants on Etsy (left). They’re adorable little charms in the shapes of states with hearts cut out of them. Urban Outfitters liked the pendants so much that they decided to copy the charms, almost exactly (right), and call them “I Heart Destination Necklaces.” And they did all of this without approaching Koerner about her designs.

It’d be great if big stores like Urban worked with small designers to help get their wares out to a bigger audience — and often they do. I have several friends who create private label goods for the hip clothing company (private label is when an indie designer sells designs under another label’s name). But just as often, Urban — and other mega stores — have been caught straight up ripping off independent designers. Last summer, the company was called out for ripping off Brooklyn designer Lilian Crowe, who made necklaces featuring rib cages, spines and skulls (they’re neat-looking, really!). Keep reading »

Sunglasses For When You’re Embarrassed To Be Seen With People Just Like You

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 pretty damn cute even without the magical powers. Break out the bag of tricks for your more hideous offerings next time, ‘kay?

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, we’re dying for these angora over-the-knee socks that have a touch of lurex. We like the idea of layering them over tights, slouching them below cropped cords, and letting them peek out from our knee-high boots.

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 my apprehension when I read about Urban Outfitters‘ new mood-changing lipsticks. The five pastel shades are supposed go on extremely sheer in varying degrees of pink and leave lips moisturized. All that being said, I’m still having a difficult time thinking of Urban as a beauty emporium. Would you try mood-changing lipstick? [Refinery 29] Keep reading »

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 and pair with a boxy, cropped blazer, grandma chic-style, or go all-out with some Breton stripes.
