I have great news for all you cool and interesting people in the market for a fashionable rainstick under $100. Free People has begun selling them for $68! Though some people believe the sticks were invented by the Aztecs to summon rainstorms by simulating their sounds, others believe they were invented for “impromptu…
To my untrained eye - sure, this woman could pass as if she's been ballet dancing since she was three. I would fixate more on the shabby-chic clothes that the advertisement is shilling.
Free People is resorting to something innovative in the way it markets $96 tank tops that look like sun-stained handkerchiefs: scrapping models entirely. For a two-week span starting tomorrow, all of the images used to sell certain clothing items will be user-submitted photos of shoppers modeling the items they…
A hilarious Goldman Sachs analysis of the outlook for hip youth clothing (and sometimes bedbug :( ) purveyor Urban Outfitters revealed some concerning negative indicators for potential investors in the store's parent company. Namely: denim tutus. Denim tutus! Have you ever heard as a thing as crazy as a denim tutu?
News of Urban Outfitters C.E.O. Glen Senk's abrupt resignation — he is reportedly heading to jeweler David Yurman, where he will be unlikely to be called upon to publicly explain a Navajo Flask to anyone — has sent the company's stock price into a tail spin. It's not clear whether Senk was pushed out, but Urban…
Free People is the land of layers and layers of overpriced, fauxhemian handmade knits and a general sloppy homeless-ish chic. In the Holiday 2010 catalog, this mismatch patchwork way of putting clothes together was passed on to the innocent kiddies.
The back cover of the March Free People catalog featured The Ugliest Shoes Ever Conceived. Viewing those shoes was such a traumatizing experience, we delayed actually looking inside the pages, should worse monstrosities lurk there. Guess what? They do!
Monday I received an email about the March Free People catalog. "I am cleaning the vomit off of myself," wrote the tipster. "Just wait until you see the slouch clog." Yesterday? Another email:
California dreamin'… on such a winter's day! Let's play Summer Of Love! Let's dress like Janis and listen to Jimi! Let's pretend the '70s, '80s, '90s and '00s never happened! Let's pretend $78 is a fair price for frayed shorts!
If you're a trust fund kid who longs to look worldly, poor and thoughtful, you're in luck. The November Free People catalog knows that nothing says "Christmas" like overpriced crochet and a headband.
It just seems like no matter how you tie this thing, it looks dumb. Another weird item after the jump.
It's 31° in NYC, but it's a beachy, balmy 80-something on the pages of February's Free People catalog. Almost like a mini-vacation! One where the clothes are so foul, you'll have intestinal issues.
- Less than a month until the election, folks, and it's getting really ugly.
- John McCain sounding like a total loon during the debates, calling Obama "That One": ugly.
- Illogical republican strategists yelling at Newsweek for putting a (gasp!) un-retouched photo of Sarah Palin on the cover: ugly!
- Nikki Blonsky kicking …
