You're like, a total spaz if you weren't seriously obsessed with Cher's magical computer-organized closet in Clueless. It's disappointing to think that the film is nearly 20 years old and Ikea STILL hasn't come up with anything remotely similar. But what's this? A light in the distance? It would appear the wonderful world of technology has smiled upon us mere plebes: Cher's style system is now iPhone compatible! Check out these apps and quit, like, buggin' out, ... Read More
  Today, the Huffington Post brought us a lovely dollop of wisdom in the form of men sharing which women's clothing trends they hate the most. Gee, what a thought-provoking and completely valid discussion! I sure do love thinking about all of the women and girls who will forsake their personal style after reading about how some douchebag thinks peplum tops look like maternity wear! Let's take a look at a few of the especially imbecilic gems the menfolk of the ... Read More
It was just last week that good ol' Chip Wilson made some pretty brainless comments about how Lululemon's products are "not for everybody." Essentially, he told anyone over a size 0 to GTFO of his store.  Now it's damage control central over at Lululemon, and Chip wants you to know it's all his fault. He released a video via Lulu's Facebook page on Friday afternoon. Here's his statement in its entirety: "Hello, I’m Chip Wilson. I’m founder of ... Read More

"The Hottest Styles Are Here"... Not   Abercrombie and Fitch is having a “meltdown,” reports Buzzfeed. Why? Because girls aren’t buying the whole “cool kids wear Abercrombie” thing anymore. Women’s clothing sales have dropped 30% in the last quarter, contributing greatly to an overall 10% decline in business.    Company CEO Mike Jeffries isn’t revealing much about the drop (don’t let 'em see you sweat, ...

I’ll be honest: I’m not a math fan. My high school career was all about Algebra dragging down my otherwise stellar C+ average. I can't do fractions or long division or tell time on a clock... I dislike numbers and try to avoid them at all costs.   But that doesn’t take away from the fact that the above shirt from Children’s Place is ridiculous. How ridiculous? The shirt proudly proclaims that girls excel in important subjects ... Read More
Meanwhile in Pakistan, a new 3-D, animated children’s show is supposed to debut featuring a crime-fighting WOMAN in – get this – a burka. In case you couldn’t tell by the title.  Yes, it's the Burka Avenger, a mild-mannered school teacher by day and a defender of women’s education by night. She fights villains who are trying to close girl's schools with pens and books. Are those super powers? I guess they can be. BECAUSE ... Read More
Sarah Fraunfelder was about to embark on a college tour with a group of other high school students when it happened. According to the 15-year-old, a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officer at the security checkpoint in LAX glared, mumbled, and then said, “You’re only fifteen, COVER YOURSELF!” after she inquired about his hostile behavior. Shaken up, Sarah texted her father, Boing Boing blog co-founder Mark Fraunfelder, who recounted ... Read More
Well this is awesome - two students from Cornell University have created a mannequin modeled after real plus sized bodies, building the most accurate curvy shape the fashion industry has ever used. That sounds a little strange (why would an accurate plus-size mannequin be revolutionary?) but until now, most mannequins for larger clothes were made by just magnifying the general proportions of smaller mannequins. That means the proportions of plus-sized mannequins ... Read More
