Shopping Guide: Awesome Printed Jeans & Pants (So You Can Ride The Trend In Style)

Shopping Guide: Awesome Printed Jeans & Pants (So You Can Ride The Trend In Style)

Okay, look: printed jeans (and cords and trousers) are verging on annoying trend territory (maybe not far off trends-that-need-to-die territory) but the fact of the matter is… we love them. We love them a lot. They are surprisingly versatile, incredibly easy to style–a solid color top and cool ankle boots, you say?–and they look so fresh. Which is to say, even if they seem dated in six months, we won’t care because we’ll still be wearing them. Here’s a bunch of good ones, starting at $24.80 and topping out around $400. More »

Shopping Guide: The "New" Hi-Low Hemmed Dress

Hi(gh)-low hemmed dresses–or mullet dresses as they are sometimes called–are usually associated with the obnoxious wedding dresses and prom gowns of the ’80s. But designers have now deconstructed the image of these bi-level beauties. They’ve added grungy, edgy touches for a more modern feel. The hi-low dress is the Billy Ray Cyrus of the fashion world, in the best way possible. More »

Friday Style Icon: Thora Birch As Enid From Ghost World

Friday Style Icon: Thora Birch As Enid From Ghost World

Terry Zwigoff’s Ghost World (based on Daniel Clowes’ comic of the same name) follows two alienated teenage buddies, Rebecca and Enid, who’ve just graduated high school and drift around their small anonymous American town trying to figure out life stuff. …They don’t. Well, Rebecca (a teenage Scarlett Johansson) gets a job and begins taking on new responsibilities, which Enid resents and dyes her hair and then ends up just running away. But Enid is a pretty cool central character when you too are a self-centered, disaffected teenage girl. So, thanks Enid. Thank you and your many animal prints. More »

Would You Go To Bloomingdale’s Because Carrie Bradshaw Suggested It?

Would You Go To Bloomingdale's Because Carrie Bradshaw Suggested It?

How about the New York Public Library? Or SoHo? The entire, tourist packed neighborhood of SoHo? How about Benihana? I see that Carrie Bradshaw, in this guide from Candace Bushnell’s upcoming young adult novel Summer in the City, is truly offering me the kind of insider’s perspective on New York typically possessed only by the residents of Greenland. – Gothamist More »

Shopping Guide: 17 Easy Rompers For Better Weather

I was a diehard romper hater for years. Then I tried one on and couldn’t believe how flattering they were. That said, fit is crucial… unless you want to end up looking like a little kid (and I still kind of cringe when boutiques refer to them as “playsuits”). Anyway, if you’re a romper holdout, I respect that. But if you’ve always been a fan (or crossed over, like me) here’s a bunch of rompers fit for many occasions involving Spring. More »

Way To Suck The Fun Out Of Shopping: A Bedbug Guide to New York

Way To Suck The Fun Out Of Shopping: A Bedbug Guide to New York

Macy’s in Herald Square is the newest New York store to become afflicted with bedbugs. Or make that, bedbug. Following in Bloomingdale’s footsteps, Macy’s claims that they found one solitary bed bug in the store, which is highly unlikely unusual, because bed bugs notoriously travel in packs. The Cut makes the spot-on observation that if it were indeed only one, why would Macy’s be so quick to report it? “Retailers used to be afraid of talking about bedbugs but now they’re all coming out and saying they have them like it’s the coolest problem ever,” The Cut writes. Here at The Gloss, we thought it would be fun to take you on a virtual tour of bedbug afflicted places in NYC. It’s totally going to become the new Sex and the City tour. More »
