Bad hair day? Wrap it up!
Bad hair day? Wrap it up!
Young, fun and somewhat off-kilter, Marc by Marc’s clothes were styled this season with so many layers that it almost recalled an NYC baglady–or a sleep-deprived, scruffy college kid.
Marc Jacobs is one of the most “directional” trend setters out there but a very well informed tipster wrote in to show us that even king Marc gets inspired, very inspired, by his peers. The Anna Sui dress is from the designer’s first ever collection-Spring 1992–and was spotted when our tipster bought an Anna Sui Read more →
The Fourth of July falls in the middle of the week this year, making it incredibly annoying for trying to sneak anywhere for a long weekend. So we recommend just taking the whole damn week off and going to the beach. To help you pack, we’ve gathered up 10 cute beach bags–many of which are Read more →
Theme dressing for a holiday can be tricky. You want to be festive, but not costume-y. It’s especially challenging on the Fourth of July when you have to work with not only red, white and blue, but also stars and stripes. That’s a whole lot going on in one outfit. So if you’d rather look Read more →
Everyone loves Memorial Day because it marks the start of the summer (and because of the long weekend!), but finding something to wear to a barbecue can be a bit of a drag – especially if your usual go-to outfit is a mix of see-through T by Alexander Wang and Miu Miu booties. (Ketchup stains! Read more →
Hillary Clinton has been all over the news the last two days. No, not for some diplomatic achievement–mostly for the hilarious Tumblr “Texts from Hillary” and the fact that one of her staff members said s/he wants to “ban” her hair scrunchies. Hillary has a long profile in this month’s Elle. In it, writer Rachael Read more →
Here are three more collections to obsess over. Marc by Marc‘s Daria-in-the-army vibe, Sophie Theallet did glamor with a mismatched twist and Vera Wang kept things wearable and pretty. There are of course also a ton more reviews on our fashion week page.
It was weird to walk into the Lexington Avenue armory and see a straightforward runway set for Marc by Marc Jacobs–no evidence was left of Rachel Feinstein’s magical set for Marc Jacobs’ show the night before. A the same time it made Marc Jacobs’ show feel that much more magical and fleeting.
Jacobs’ collection for his contemporary line, Marc by Marc, made much less of an impact than his RTW collection–no ginormous brightly colored fur Jamiroquai hats here–but the clothes were wearable (and comfortable looking!) and hipster friendly. Many of the models were styled a la Jenna Lyons with thick framed glasses wearing Daria-esque loose day dresses in vibrant prints. Blazers and knits were worn over knee-length pleated school girl skirts (these were not of the slutty cheerleader variety).
Yep, they keep coming. Since last week’s update, big names like Chloé, Balenciaga, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Hermès and Lanvin have all unveiled their spring 2012 campaigns, some of which came with interesting news. For one, Chloe’s spring campaign was shot by Glen Luchford and stars Karmen Pedaru & Kate King, not Arizona Muse and Read more →
Having your name or initials emblazoned on something never gets old. It goes back to that pride you felt back in third grade, when writing your name into your favorite books sent a statement to the world: “This is mine.” (And if you’re like me, you also drew a unicorn and stars for good measure) As far as gifts go, something personalized or custom-designed shows that you put a bit of effort into it, when you could totally just buy an iTunes gift card.
With that in mind, we gathered a bunch of customizable gift ideas at various price points. Whether your recipient is into fashion or not, here are ten ideas for cool custom gifts. Click through to check them out.
Wanna get someone a fabulous gift that’s designer without breaking the bank? You totally can. In fact, a lot of designer labels cater to people like us who want to be fancy but for whom the Miu Miu shoes and Alaïa dresses we really want are far out of reach.
These aren’t knock-offs or collaborations or makeup, but real designer items that we would actually be very happy to find under the tree or in a stocking. Now if someone could tell us where to put stockings when you don’t have a fireplace, that would be great.
From Prada to Alexander Wang to Alaïa (seriously!), here are the 14 best little designer gifts that less than $300 can buy!
