Last night, we stopped by Anthropologie to get a first look at the store's Made in Kind holiday collaboration with Chris Benz. The clothes were very bright, and very reflective of the pink-haired designer's signature look, and after seeing three different girls try on his lime green maxi dress (and all look amazing) we're convinced that maybe it isn't such a tough color to pull off.
We headed to the racks to handle some of Benz's more voluminous dresses...Read Full Story

(BoobyPack)Hyperbolically speaking, the thing I hate most in the world is schlepping. I'm the worst about it. I'd rather carry nothing, stash my pockets with a phone, a couple of credit cards, one lip balm, and my keys—and run the risk of being extremely unprepared for any and every circumstance outside of the ordinary—than carry a giant handbag everywhere. So this—this Boobypack thing, above—this, is exciting. See, it's a longline bra top with a built-in pocket. Like, a fannypack for your...Read Full Story
Two Marc Jacobs ads hit the internet this week, but only one is real.
Okay, fine, it's the one on the left. Sorry, we had to get one more Ikea monkey reference in before the week was up.
Lensed by Juergen Teller (of course), Marc's spring Marc by Marc Jacobs ad campaign features a male model wedged into a graffiti'd dive bar bathroom stall. Wisely, he is not touching the toilet seat.
Usually, when a brand wants their ads to look "gritty," they'll smear...Read Full Story
