The Fug Girls have discovered a fashion rule that, unlike most other fashion rules, should not be broken.
I am supremely disappointed in Glamour magazine for posting this article about what a great idea it is to wear high-waisted, pleated pants. The outfit picture shown to demostrate the virtues of this fashion horror is not helping matters. Agree? Disagree? Leave a comment- you know I love them (comments, that is. Not pleated high-waisted pants).
Generally speaking, when it comes to fashion, I like my men to look like men. Not like little boys. Or women. Or clowns. Thank you Burberry, Costume National, DSquared2, and Hermes for NYFW Spring 2011 collections that are designed for men. Balenciaga, Alexis Mabille, and especially Commes de Garcon, you're on notice.
For those of you looking for more environmentally and ethically sound clothing choices, Eco Fashion World is your resource. With a list of eco-friendly online stores, and fashion brands, as well as news, books and education, open jobs in the industry and even a breakdown of the various types of eco-friendly fashion choices you can make. Whether you prefer vegan, vintage, fair trade, or all of the above and then some, this guide can help you find what you're looking for. (Although, I didn't see Fair Indigo in their list of stores, so I may have to email them about that...)
In corporate America, it isn't easy for women to look both professional and feminine. Fortunately for us, Lucky Magazine has put together a fabulous slideshow entitled "15 Feminine Pieces to Instantly Update your Work Wardrobe."
Continuing with the magazine theme, I was fascinated by the "Top 10 Fall Beauty Trends" by Allure. My faves? #1- Red Lips and #5- Rough Waves.
Speaking of beauty tricks, I am loving this video by our favorite make-up artist Kandee Johnson. Whether you are getting ready for a school picture day (it's that time of year again!), or any other type of photo- passport, family portrait, even your drivers license or workplace ID, this make-up technique will do the trick.
While I've always loved ModCloth's pieces for summer, every now and then, there's an amazing something or other that is just perfect for the cooler months of the year. Like this dress, these boots and this coat. In fact, I see no reason not to buy all three and wear them all together!
Happy Thursday, everyone!
