Advertised on Gilt Groupe, this $500 (on sale) outfit was worn by the woman who worked at my daycare.

Skants.

April 1, 2010 at 4:41 pm (pop culture) (, , , , )

I used to rock a pair of pants that had a built-in short skirt attached, which I loved but they made me look like some sort of confused waitress.  So I clicked on this link to ModCloth’s “Skants“, secretly hoping that look was back in style.  I wasn’t ready for this.  It looks like someone put on an ugly sweater whilst drunk.

Luckily, they’re unisex.

Two famous models, one from the 90s and one from today, at the same event.

Naomi

And now, Agyness

Just for an added bonus, here’s a hilarious pic from The High Definite, helping models with the toughest part of their jobs.

Tyra’s So Mad She Didn’t Think of This for ANTM…

September 29, 2009 at 9:08 am (movies, pop culture) (, , , , , )

This fall, MOMA is going to be doing a retrospective on Tim Burton’s films, so Harper’s Bazaar decided to let Tim Burton create clothing and style a photo spread for this month’s issue.  This is fairly perfect, since Tim Burton’s movies have, as of late, been more appropriately viewed as stills rather than moving, talking, horrible song-filled pieces of cinema.

Like this.

More gorgeousness after the cut, and sadly/gratefully, no Helena Bonham Carter…

My birthday is next month (hint hint)

April 3, 2009 at 8:06 am (pop culture) (, , )

The bikini jeans were created by a Japanese clothing line called Sanna’s that claims to make Brazilian fashion.  One fashion blogger says

I think the design is pretty cool and although it may take some time getting used to, once a celebrity blesses these jeans, there official. Lindsay Lohan, Rihanna, Britney Spears and Jessica Simpson all have the star power to make these jeans the staple look of 09′.

So run out and get them while you can, ladies!  They’re going to be the fashion staple of 2009!

Thanks Kate Comer!

And while I’m on the subject of open letters….

Dear ladies,

This style of shoe is not cute.

I usually try not to make judgment calls on fashion, because there are people that can pull off any look out there, but this is pushing it.  It’s all the style of wearing gladiator sandals mixed with the tragedy of having to wrap your feet in burlap because you can’t afford shoes!  Plus, they won’t keep you cool or warm!

There’s a reason only one of these pictures shows someone actually wearing these shoes.  I think even stylists realize that these look horrid on actual people.

So ladies, keep your $220.  Spend it on kittens.

Love,

Gynomite

Who wouldn’t want a kid that Beck follows on the street?

March 16, 2009 at 11:12 am (cool things i've found, pop culture) (, , , , )

This is Arlo Weiner, son of Matt Weiner, the guy that created Mad Men.  Amazingly, this isn’t even slightly the most interesting thing about Arlo Weiner.  At the age of 3, he asked his parents for a top hat, and hasn’t looked back since, becoming by far the most stylish 8 year old that ever existed.  He wants to design his own clothing line, and admits that he gets a lot of inspiration from his dad’s show.  His parents love it, and talk about the time he was followed down the street by an awestruck Beck.

Jump to see more pictures of him with his descriptions of his outfits!!  (via AskMen)

You’ve been wasting those plastic grocery bags

A girl I work with showed me these boots today, and I hate to get all girly on you guys, but they are ridiculously awesome.  And $45.  Plus, they’re made out of plastic grocery bags.

Extra large does not mean extra cool

October 14, 2008 at 2:13 pm (pop culture) (, , )

You know what’s funny?  The 2XL and 3XL sections of American Apparel’s website.

American Apparel, long known for their “who me?  i was just stretching while thinking about having sex with poetry!” ad campaigns and for drastically undersized clothing, has decided to acknowledge a large percentage of the country by making their clothes in sizes 2XL and 3XL.
