Once I had nothing to wear to a white party so I made one white T-shirt into an off-the shoulder top, and another into a skirt by cutting off the sleeves and sewing up the armholes. It was fine, for one night, in a pinch. Alas, wearing long-sleeved shirts as skirts? Terribly unflattering, but a real thing, apparently.
"I haven't seen anyone come out sobbing, but some were definitely devastated." So says Jennifer Althouse, the buyer at American Rag, a store in L.A. which has just installed an "ass cam." A dressing room camera offering a rear view.
Supré is a family-owned and operated clothing company founded in 1984, with stores in Australia and New Zealand. Similar to what Americans can find at Forever 21 (though perhaps not quite as inexpensive), Supré shoppers are offered tees, knitwear, jackets, cardigans, party dresses, accessories… and, now, jeggings.…
If you read tabloids or ladymags, pay attention to advertising campaigns, or happen to live on planet Earth, you know that the one thing women are supposed to strive for — more than a functioning body, a healthy body, or a strong body — is a bikini body.
The news that O.G. socialite-turned-HSN costume jewelry designer Iris Apfel's creations are less than original should — to anyone who pays attention to the celebrity clothing line industrial complex — be less than surprising. The story here is that Apfel, whose taste in jewelry is deservedly famous, was approached to…
The news that Patrick Robinson was fired last week from the Gap was not that shocking. The Gap has had a few cute moments since Patrick arrived on the scene, but consistency was lacking. You don't need me to ramble on and on about what did not work during his reign, but I am happy to suggest a few key bits that should…
To be fair, the Mary Jane boots by Prada also come in blue suede and python. Guess brown-skinned women who love this quirky trompe l'oeil look will have to buy those! Because the "flesh"-colored ones definitely don't represent the fleshtones of black people. Not a big deal, really, but definitely interesting. Since…
Trying on clothes recently, I found that the sizes of the garments varied. Widely. One shirt was a Large; another an XL, another an XXL. Pants ranged from 14 to 16 to 18 to 20. An informal poll of coworkers revealed that we all have a minimum of three different sizes in our wardrobes. What the hell?
When I first heard about "leggings that look like jeans," I thought, what a terrible, disgusting, highly unflattering idea.
In February 2009, Chris Devers took a picture of an old Jaguar, and posted it on his Flickr photostream. Yesterday, someone contacted Devers, writing: "This photo is on an outfit my wife bought at Baby Gap."
Plus-size shoppers rarely hear straight-up good news — there's always a caveat or catch — and the latest dispatch from H&M is no exception.
In picture after picture, Sandra Lee is like a virgin. Suggests Stacey London, "there's the idea of purity and the fact they aren't married and she's trying to not look like the girlfriend."
See, jeans cause muffin top and other maladies, but "jeggings suck it all in." Behold an ode to jeans plus leggings, complete with fire, boomboxes and gratuitous tummy rolls.
Bosnian model Andrej Pejic — considered a "rising star" in the industry — just landed an ad campaign for Jean Paul Gaultier. With long blond hair and a square jaw, Pejic resembles Karolina Kurkova… but Pejic is a dude.
The troubled economy — along with changing style trends — have had a big impact on black hair salons. But is there an upside?
At some point, it became a thing for the host of an award show wear a different ensemble every time she hits the stage. Last night, Eva Longoria hosted the "prestigious" MTV Europe Music Awards, and fulfilled her presto-change-o requirements.
