Bargain bins beware

Since subscribing to Rachel Zoe’s Zoe Report, while still staying updated through my usual means of course, my life has certainly changed for the better. The woman is a genius. I love looking (and drooling) over high fashion as much as the next broke fashionista (can you be that?) but let’s be honest. College kids don’t make diddly and it gets worse when they can’t find even a part-time job. (Read: my life currently.)

So with that in mind, my favorite part about her reports is the little section at the bottom titled Attention: Broke Ass Parallel Universe. I basically thrive off of it, because she tells you exactly where to find an item similar to the aforementioned high-fashion piece she owns and/or raves over, for a much lower price. (I just said that in my best door-to-door vacuum salesman voice.)

With the economy the way it is, a lot of fashion and style magazines are taking the route of teaching women how to shop on a budget, mix and match higher priced peices with bargains and shop their closets. My point: Even those things are sometimes pricey. Continue reading

Project Runway

Good morning, bloggers! (In my best Tim Gunn voice.)

Project Runway is back. What does this mean? Every girl on the planet is hating their life and pining for Heidi’s long legs and perfect bod. (I mean, is she serious?) I’ve done a little dating with my DVR and here’s what I’ve gotten so far.

Arie - Too weird for TV.I hate the first episode of any show like this. I can’t remember who is who. Fortunately I do remember Arie because she went home. She designed that weird hoodie fit for the futuristic college classroom. Awesome! Wait, wasn’t their challenge red carpet? I also remember Chris (from Minnesota) because he won with that punk inspired ruffle dress that was freaking phenom. I wish Lindsay Lohan hadn’t said she would wear it, because I try to steer clear of her fashion choices, but it’s fine.

Kate + Playboy = Britt throw up

Seriously, no one wants to see a reverse mullet, especially a naked one that popped out 6 kids at once. Keep it. Supposedly she was offered $400,000. Maybe Hef will sit next to her on the couch since apparently Jon is “disgusted” with her. Whatever. Losers.

Tila 'I don't drink' Tequila

Tila 'I don't drink' Tequila

In other trailer park news, Tila Tequila apparently citizen-arrested her (now?) ex-boyfriend Shawne Merriman. I’m not going to lie, I did watch her show on MTV and my honest opinion is that they were just having some rough sex and citizens arrest really means, Tila likes handcuffs.

Her defense? “I’m allergic to alcohol.” Is she insane? First of all, reality dating shows provide alcohol by the liter. No way you can tell me she wasn’t drinking.

Fashion B-port.

I’m back like Herpes. OK, bad joke, but I know you missed me over the weekend. I got to do a lot of thinking, what with recovering from the swine flu (not really) and I’ve decided to start my own version of my lifeline: The Zoe Report. Catchy title to come soon.

How do you feel about…rompers?

I’m not going to lie, the first time I saw a romper making fashion headlines this summer, I thought, “These are worse than harem pants! And that’s sacrilege!” And then I saw one in person this summer on a girl who had the body for it, and I was surprised to find that I didn’t hate it – on her.

Rompers

The jury is still out on this questionable fashion piece, so let’s go over a few styles and ways to wear it.

STYLE & DESIGN no longer fashionable.

It’s been hard times lately for Time Inc., who has been forced to close now two magazines in the past month. In early August, they closed Southern Accents magazine, whose advertising

And here we are, nary a week before New York Fashion Week, and they’ve pulled the plug on Style & Design. And who is to blame for this travesty? The collapse of the luxury market, apparently.

Carpet burn

The 2009 Daytime Emmy awards aired on the CW Monday night. I’ll admit, I didn’t watch. However, I am caught up on the red carpet photos. Don’t worry, I’ll tell you who is gross and who (as my love Rachel Zoe puts it) is bananas. Continue reading
