Shopping Guide: Sneaker Wedges You Can Buy Instead Of Those Horrible Daddy’$ Money Ones

Shopping Guide: Sneaker Wedges You Can Buy Instead Of Those Horrible Daddy'$ Money Ones

Okay, allow us to come clean: we think sneaker wedges are horrible. Absolutely dreadful. We first saw them at NYFW a few years ago and thought, “Those won’t last more than a season.” Aaaaaaaaand, we were super fucking wrong. But we still hate them.

However, the recent release of Daddy’$ MoneySketcher’s take on sneaker wedges that sets women back more than a few decades–moved us to compile a shopping guide of alternatives. This way, no one has to support unbelievably sexist marketing/bad taste in the name of owning sporty horse hooves.

In a surprising twist, we found some of them kind of almost okay. More »

Shopping Guide: Potbelly-Friendly Thanksgiving Dresses

Shopping Guide: Potbelly-Friendly Thanksgiving Dresses

Thanksgiving is about two things: trying not to argue with your family and eating your face off. Sometimes those overlap!

Oh, Thanksgiving is also about pretty autumn colors like cranberry, pumpkin, wines and plums. Here, we have assembled a gallery of under $300 dresses (with a wide range of prices) that are nice enough for a formal dinner occasion but forgiving enough to account for that delicious third helping of stuffing. Please note that if you’re not embarrassed of your Thanksgiving potbelly, by all means buy a bodycon dress and own it.

Friday Style Icon: The Ladies of ‘A League Of Their Own’

Friday Style Icon: The Ladies of 'A League Of Their Own'

Last week Jennifer and I were figuring out some upcoming Friday Style Icons because I didn’t want every week to be about mining ’90s movies I liked as a child. And we immediately concluded, Let’s do A League of Their Own! Unfortunately, A League of Their Own is the opposite of what we were trying to do. So I did a gallery of awesome Chloe Sevigny looks. This week, as we were compiling stuff for our tribute to the ladysports classics, intrepid intern Jill was like, “Just like Nylon!” and we were like, “WHAA?” Then she broke our fucking hearts by showing us a spread in this month’s Nylon about makeup inspired by A League of Their Own.
