Here’s a scarlet letter I’m not afraid to brandish.

When I moved to New York City almost five years ago, I swore off my basics wardrobe. The one comprising an apparel company that shall remain nameless; my go-to for college parties and wild, strobe-lit affairs. It was time to step it up, so that even when I went for simple, it would still come across as streamlined and put-together.

Enter Ekineyo.

I first fell in love with the Brooklyn-based brand’s Babe Dress—a long-sleeved body-con with a single sheer panel along the lower hem. It was cool, clean, and above all, didn’t require the self-conscious pull-down that many women endure when their freakum dress (annoyingly!) rides up. It was a time when Ekineyo consisted primarily of nylon/spandex creations in fun prints and bold hues. A few years later, its offerings have expanded and, in a sense, grown up with me.

For a night out, I now opt for Ekineyo’s fleece coordinating set. Currently in black and red color ways, the two-piece set is forgiving (thanks peplum!), and cozy enough to dress up a cold fall evening on the town. Plus, the co-ordinate aspect is a plus: wear both together or mix-and-match for a combination of different approaches. Either way, you’ll feel sexy and sleek without crossing a thin, co-ed line.

Zappos Pops Up In Vegas

By  November 21, 2014

ZapposPopupZappos is following in the footsteps of e-tailers-turned-retailers like Warby Parker and Nasty Gal and setting up shop just in time for the holidays. The 20,000-square-foot 24-7 pop-up shop in downtown Las Vegas is merchandised with 16 different areas offering everything from couture to athletic wear. Basically, it’s real life Zappos.com.

The technology-driven pop-up is a sort of experiment for the online retailer. According to Steve Hill, vice president of merchandising at Zappos, the sales made at this shop “will inform future stores we decide to open.” Though there’s a finite amount of stock at the shop, with so much backup inventory online, Zappos anticipates that “no one will ever feel disappointed if [they] don’t have the size or color they want because they’ll get it the next day.”

Shopping aside, Zappos aims to make the store even more of a jovial holiday shopping experience. The parking lot has been transformed into a winter wonderland and the store’s café will serve hot chocolate and snacks, making it a perfect place to bring the kids. Oh, and there’s a bar that will serve alcoholic beverages for when all of the above merriment gets a little much.

ReeseWitherspoonWildEvery day, we bring you celebrity sightings and stylings as seen everywhere from the streets to the red carpet. Whether they’re dolled up or dressed down, we can’t resist the need to know who wore what.

For an actress who’s starring in a movie titles Wild, Reese Witherspoon took a relatively tame approach to her outfit for the film’s Beverly Hills premiere. Witherspoon looked radiant in a white hot cocktail dress, which she topped off with minimal jewelry and flawless makeup. So, in case you forget while you’re watching this movie, remember this impeccable outfit and that Witherspoon will always have a little bit of Elle Woods in her no matter how far into the wilderness she’s forced to hike. Here, she proves that a simple silhouette and a bright swipe of lipstick will catapult you to the top of any best-dressed list—as “any Cosmo girl would have known.”

Thanks to chief creative officer and chief executive officer Christopher Bailey, the British brand is working on incorporating technology into its retail experience. Bailey points out that his Burberry is oppositional: “I would say, first, it’s brand of contradictions, so we’re heritage but we are also fashion. I love traditional service, but I love digital innovation. We are a big company, but we like to make sure what we do is intimate.” [Women’s Wear Daily]

Valentino Garavani chatted with Fern Mallis on Tuesday at 92Y about his new book The Last Emperor…and other things.

In a certain way, at the end, I am quite proud because I did it with lots of love.” [Women’s Wear Daily]

Watch: The 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Casting Video

By  November 20, 2014

Ever wonder what goes on behind the scenes of the most highly anticipated fashion show of the year? Well, here’s your answer—and it involves buoyant wavy hairstyles, itsy bitsy teeny weeny bikinis and a lot of air kisses (as one might expect). The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is merely weeks away, but this video takes us all the way back to when models were just vying for a spot in the show. It’s clear that these women don’t need sparkly lingerie and oversized wings to work their walk—but we’re still looking forward to watching it all come together on December 9.

4 Moods, 4 Looks

By  November 19, 2014

target-when-youre-feeling

This season, allow your ensembles to act as a reflection of yourself, whoever you are that particular day. When your mood meshes with your unique creativity, the possibilities of personal style are endless. We’re dynamic and multi-dimensional creatures, Glam girls, so the way you approach fashion should be too.

Whatever side of your style feels like shining on a particular day, it’s important to coordinate pieces for a look that carries all the way through for a pulled-together, synchronized aesthetic from top to bottom. When you’re reveling in a red-carpet frame of mind, put your most glamorous foot forward via a sky-high pair of pumps, sparkling accessories, and a haute Hollywood-ready red lip. On the opposite side of the style spectrum, laid back babes will want to rock a cool graphic tee, stretchy skinnies, and the effortless beanie and booties combination. As for those dreamy days, when you’re feeling flirty and feminine, a little bohemian and a whole lot of beautiful, don a flowy floral dress, awesomely accessorized with a fabulous fur vest, fringe, and leather. Feeling an edgier attitude coming on? Rocking a trendy city-chic look is a good go-to for most occasions. Get your street-style star status on with a fitted midi-dress, fierce stiletto booties, spike and studded earrings, and a cool cat eye.

Fashion is much more fun when you get in the routine of using it to reflect your identity. What attitude and influences are you feeling today?

RihannaSuit

Every day, we bring you celebrity sightings and stylings as seen everywhere from the streets to the red carpet. Whether they’re dolled up or dressed down, we can’t resist the need to know who wore what.

Rihanna traded in her sparkly Tom Ford nipple covers for something a little more, well, refined. In a far cry from the revealing pasty-dress she wore at the 2014 amfAR Gala, the singer went for a more demure gingham suit in a sugary sweet shade of pink. Though it’s not her usual red carpet MO, we have to say a non-risk-taking version of Rihanna is quite refreshing (right, well, she’s still not wearing a shirt…but it’s a start). The dark lipstick and messy hair give this look just the right amount of @badgalriri edge we know and love.


Kathy Griffin Will Succeed Joan Rivers On Fashion Police

By  November 19, 2014

KathyGriffinFPAfter much speculation, it has finally been confirmed that Kathy Griffin will take the place of late comedienne Joan Rivers on E!’s Fashion Police. Griffin will join Melissa Rivers, Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osborne on the show, and it’s unclear as to whether George Kotsiopoulos will stay on. However, TMZ reports that instead of airing on a weekly basis, the show will only air during awards season and other special occasions as event programming.

A source told Us Weekly that, “Joan has always given her blessing to Kathy [and she] wanted Kathy to be her successor.” Well, it looks like Joan’s wishes are being honored, and we can’t wait to tune in to see what happens.

In a conversation with André Leon Talley, Rucci said that he has decided what his next career move will be, but he was unable to disclose it.

Rebagg offers cash up front for the handbags you’re not wearing anymore and makes the re-sell process totally easy and painless. [Glam Inbox]

There’s a “new normal” in the toy industry: the Lammily doll, which is basically what Barbie would look like if she actually had the measurements of an average 19-year-old woman. She comes with a sticker extension pack, complete with cellulite, freckles, acne and scars to make her seem that much more “real.” Creator Nickolay Lamm made this toy because, “I wanted to show that reality is cool. And a lot of toys make kids go into fantasy, but why don’t they show real life is cool? It’s not perfect, but it’s really all we have. And that’s awesome.” [TIME]

Alexander Wang will open his first London store in Mayfair early next year. The shop will join brands including Paul Smith, Amanda Wakeley, Buccellati and Garrard & Co. on Albemarle Street with a shop that will span 6,500 square feet.  [Women’s Wear Daily]
