Remember those Louis Vuitton bunny ears from 2009? Well, two women at New York
magazine got their hands on a pair of them and took their new stylish ears out for a test-drive. For starters, the ears, when you first get them, are way bigger and somewhat less easy to style than you might think. But after the ladies twist their ear origami into the proper shapes — bat wings and bunny ears — they set off down the streets of New York City to find out what the people think. Mostly, their large LV ears don’t garner as much as a second glance. The strongest reaction they get is from two little girls who crow and yelp at the sight of them. Apparently, only Madonna
can wear Louis Vuitton rabbit ears to proper effect. [The Cut

The much-hyped Rodarte for Target collection finally launched — and sold out — yesterday. By mid-day, almost every style was gone online, the good ones having disappeared in the wee hours of the morning. People were already marking up and selling Rodarte for Target pieces on eBay yesterday morning! Doesn’t that seem a little unfair since most shoppers didn’t even get a chance to order the collection at retail price in the first place?

In what is possibly the most revolting accessory concept we’ve seen of late, synthetic skin bags, jackets, jumpers and more are now available on a website near you. Yes, skin. In case, you know, you’re concerned that you don’t have enough of it. A purse that bears an uncanny resemblance to a severe burn victim’s head on a string is by far the most terrifying, but it’s not the only option that makes us want to vomit!
SkinBag also gives you the option of actually layering their faux skin on top of your real skin, as is the case with the glorious jacket above. And if you’re concerned that your friends will think it’s “weird,” don’t worry about it — the manufacturer says you’re being deep by wearing SkinBag items. After all, they’re “a relational tool offering, an alchemy between the repulsive and the captivating.” Or maybe it’s all just repulsive. Keep reading »
We’re not sure what genius thought up this hilarious Snookie-of-”Jersey-Shore“-inspired blanket with “skeeves” pic that’s making the rounds today, but we’re not really laughing. One, making fun of the fact that she was physically assaulted (MTV is no longer airing the scene in this week’s episode) is just kind of nasty, and two, isn’t everyone just plain over Snuggie parodies at this point? It’s more than a little played out. Grade? FAIL. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

There’s a well-known cosmetics fact that’s been floating around for years now: Over the course of the average woman’s lifetime, she will inadvertently eat seven pounds of lipstick. SEVEN POUNDS. And as gross as that statistic is, it’s never been more disgusting than as evidenced in this video starring Stevie Ryan and commissioned by natural beauty company Raw. Seriously, you just have to watch it. Now. [Glow

Remember when we told you about Regretsy, the site where, much like the Island of Misfit Toys, dubious crafts go to live amongst their handicapped brethren? Here’s a new one to join their ranks: Etsy seller DirtyAssSoaps created this peppermint-scented soap made out of a “beat up” vintage dental cast she acquired. And no worries, animal lovers: they’re totes vegan! Actually, on second thought, we take it back. This craft project kind of rules. [Etsy] Keep reading »
Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Katy Perry and pretty much all young, female pop singers have experienced hideous moments in fashion, looking more drunk-slutty than pop-starry. But they share more than the scary times. They also have a common history of coming on to the pop scene looking relatively clean-cut and cute. There was Britney with the sexy schoolgirl outfit that we now consider tame, Christina with her stick-straight locks and rhinestone butterfly decals, and Katy Parry, who’s still more or less working an edgier version of young and cute. Who would have guessed that Christina’s half shirts and Britney’s mini skirts would prove to be the golden era of pop cleanliness?
Now we’ve got Ke$ha, who’s new to the scene and already about as trashy as the dollar sign in her faux-name would imply. Her inexplicably popular (read “crappy”) single, “Tik Tok,” only dropped a couple months ago and she’s already looking all Courtney Love. Doesn’t she realize that such an effed-up aesthetic must be earned? Keep reading »
