Is it a tie? Is it a scarf? Is it a tie and a scarf in one? If it’s a tie-scarf, why is it called an “Andtie? Shouldn’t it be called a “Scarf-and-tie,” or a “Scarf ‘n’ TIe,” or a “Neck Suggie Tie”? Works for the guys or the girls, apparently. Comes in black or gray, plain or striped. Works for interviews on chilly days, perhaps? No idea how much it costs. I think I like it. In a weird, American Apparel sort of way. Not that I would wear it. Would you? [The Daily What] Keep reading »
The Sexist reports on a bag of leftover dildos that were left out in the snow sometime around the holidays. One woman ran over them on her bike, and pedestrians were purportedly tripping over the, er, “goodie bag.” Conclusion: People in DC are way freakier than previously believed.

Remember those gag gifts of singing bass fish on wooden plaques? Well, this is a ridiculous modification of that. Jingle Jugs are fashioned after a life-like set of boobs and shimmy-shake in rhythmic motion to the song “Titties & Beer.” They’re $10 on sale—imagine that, discounted already! Nothing like a little low-brow lewdness to wring out the last bits of the holiday season. [Spencer's] Keep reading »
If you don’t get at least a couple really lame gifts for every great holiday gift you receive, then consider us jealous. We’ve all got that aunt who thinks the sweater with the kittens on it is OK because it’s cashmere (true story), and though we try to imply the error of that reasoning with awkward smiles and half hugs, the message never really gets across. Before you know it, it’s been a year, the same aunt is giving you a kitten scarf to match “that sweater you loved so much last year!” (Also, we’re not sure why bad gifts consistently arrive in the form of clothes, but they always do!) Oh well, as the old adage goes, if you can’t beat ‘em, commiserate with others who’ve received similarly crappy gifts! (Or something like that.) Tales of terrifying gifts from years gone by after the jump. Keep reading »
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 »
