Things You Can Only Get Away With Wearing When It's This Effing Hot

It is really effing hot out right now. And it looks like it's going to stay that way for a while. Temps soared to 99 degrees in New York yesterday and we're supposed to hit triple digits (and maybe even break the record high of 101) today. Even Mary Sunshine would be hard pressed to put a positive spin on this oppressive heat wave, but we thought of one thing: It's sort of the only acceptable time to walk around half-naked (not that anyone would look twice if you did walk around naked in New York). So. We put together an assortment of breezy frocks, cropped tops and the tiniest hot pants that look (only slightly) less ridiculous in this heat. It's not all American Apparel, promise.
