Trend To Try: Gown and Sneakers

The recent Chanel couture show has us wondering: is it finally time to try your everyday shoes with fancy dresses? KStew was a purveyor for the trend in the past couple of years, but TBH we have never been 100% on board. With resurgence of sneaker culture in the last few years, we have more choices than ever and maybe there are some gowns and sneakers we wouldn’t mind wearing together. Here’s how to rock those sneakers with sequins! read more…

WHO WORE IT BEST: Celebrity or Dog?

New spring and summer ad campaigns are starting to come out, guys! This means it’s time to put our judge’s glasses on decide whether or not fashion brands chose the right outfits, backdrops, hair, makeup, and most importantly: the right model. I don’t know about you, but I think there is a lack of dogs present in most campaigns. Since celebrities are taking over most model’s jobs, can we make a case for swapping celebrities for canines? read more…

Your Comprehensive Guide To: Lady Gaga's Many Outfits

If there’s anyone who wears more clothes than Lady Gaga then they must have a full-time job in speed changing because Mother Monster has a serious addiction with her wardrobe. Since I’ve been typing this sentence she’s switched outfits three times! How can we even keep up? Well I’ve compiled a timeline of every crazy piece of attire GaGa has worn leading up to her album release because I know you might have missed a few here and there.

FYI: Designer's Random Object Collections

Sometimes, designers decide to take a walk on the wild side – and by wild side I mean…making something other than things meant to clothe human bodies. Including key chains, home decor, personal items, sports items etc, I’m a bit on the fence about people who actually buy these overpriced & arbitrary items, but nevertheless, I will rationalize their decisions by admitting that they’re “interesting” to look at. Or at least, interesting to think about. (And by this we are referring to pondering why they exist and why we will never have enough $$$ to partake in the ~fun~). read more…

H&M Collabs: The Good, The Bad, The Beyonce


Source: Beyonce.com / H&M

In her continued attempts at world domination, Queen Bey has produced an heir to her throne, signed on as the face of America’s favouite cola, and drawn in more female viewers to the super bowl than ever before. The pop culture queen’s latest efforts have us bowing down in affordably-priced tropical-infused garb with her buzz worthy collab with H&M – and, in the history of celeb-filled campaigns, this one’s looking pretty promising. Get hyped with us for Bey’s high street takeover and browse the Swedish retailer’s history of hit and misses staring Lana, a troop of models, and Mark Ronson killing it in hot pink suiting.

Wait, what? That t-shirt cost you $1625? (And other ridiculously cheap looking expensive things)

Traditionally, being rich meant buying ridiculously expensive garments and looking hella’ good wearing them. These days however, there can be little correlation between the cost of clothing and how ~pricey~ they appear. Thanks to poor-looking rich people *cough Mary-Kate Olsen*, it has become the norm to disguise your wealth under cheap/ugly looking outfits that actually cost more than most people’s monthly rent. So sit back, relax and enjoy these selected items while being grateful that you probably can’t afford any of them. Who knew it could cost so much to look so bad? read more…

Your Comprehensive Guide To Pronouncing Designer Names

If fashion wasn’t already one of the most intricate areas of art (a tall, but deserved, order), it’s been further complicated throughout history by its phonetics. Design words – from ombré to décolletage, haute to ruching – and the emergence of new, exotic designer names – have been mangled by even Vogue’s most faithful follower. We’ve all had one of those read-it-but-never-once-said-it words touch our tongue leaving us bruised and broken, and vowing to silence rather than relive the horror of pronouncing Prabal Gurung (prub-le ger-rung) in public ever again. Crack open your schoolbook kids, because it’s time to brush up on the ABC’s of fashion designer diction. read more…
