Viva La Biba!

BY Laurie in General |

Beyond Biba Trailer from November Films on Vimeo. I was super psyched to hear the news that a documentary has been made about my absolute all time fave 60's-70's design house, the influential and way ahead of it's time, Biba. The movie, Beyond Biba, is premiering in the UK this weekend, and I really do hope it makes it over to our shores. Biba was founded by Barbara Hulanicki and her husband in 1964, and quickly grew from a small mail order company to ... Read More

Dirty Town, Dirty Shop

BY Web Intern in Style File |

Are you a bride-to-be or just a big fan of panties and burlesque? Tomorrow night at Town Shop in NYC Dirty Dolls Lingerie will be hosting a launch party for their line with a red carpet and VIP shopping event. You can get fitted for one of their righteously sexy bras and shop for panties, shapers and tap pants. All while drinking free wine and eating wedding cake (booze and sugar? for free? could you ask for more?). Plus you can get a makeover from The Glam Fairy ... Read More
No, this one isn't caused by that shirtless picture of Daniel Craig that randomly popped up in your last Google image search. This particular bizarre feeling in your south towns can actually be from your pants. Apparently if your skinny jeans are a little too, uh, skinny, they can cause meralgia paresthetica or 'tingling leg syndrome.' It comes from excess pressure being put on your femeral nerve by restrictive denim, and it only gets worse if you pair them ... Read More
If you really like food, or things that are shaped like other things, these purses might be perfect. Hambags by Hannah Havana of Garudio Studiage are little vinyl purses and wallets shaped like food. Choose between a hot dog, a chicken leg and a burger for the purse, or pick up a Whopper Wallet, which is shaped like - you guessed it - the very fast food favorite it was named for. They all come with a chain strap (the wallet has a chain wrist loop) and zip ... Read More

Absolutely Fat-bulous

BY Web Intern in Style File |

Thanks to an article/segment from Good Morning America, I have a new blog crush: Young, Fat and Fabulous. YFF is a blog run by a young woman named Gabi and it focuses on trendy fashion for plus-sized girls. The clothes she chooses to talk about are a little edgier than those usually featured on Fatshionista, and the blog in general is less political. Plus, YFF seems to focus a lot on the ''in-betweenie'' set, which is the range of sizes that span the gap between ... Read More
Every story about living on a budget seems to start out with the line ''in these tough economic times.'' So, in these tough economic times, thrift store shopping seems like a really good idea. And the thrift stores have noticed. The New York Times published an article today about a new phenomenon - Goodwill boutiques. These shops are still run by the Goodwill and they still use their profits for the same cause, but instead of being a big warehouse of ... Read More
