Shark Week Every Week, get your Shark pants here!

Awesome runway comedy on the streets of Sydney.  Saw it on The Sartorialist, had to find the designer: Romance was Born.  Great, fun, fashion.  Simple black T, shark produces the shock factor. Love it.

Art? Fashion? or Runway Comedy. . . You decide.

Art? Fashion? or Runway Comedy?

It depends on who you ask but designer Di Mainstone has definitely created something unique with her Sharewear line.

Playing with shapes and the idea of isolation and community in NYC brings an interesting point of view to the table [...]

Classy dumpster chick heels? Ferrel Girl shoes? Basically, it looks like some strange lego piece got crazy with some tape and made its-self into a heel. Not quite sure, if [...]

Bullet or Dildo Dress? You Decide . . .

I know what I'll be wearing to my next bachelorette party. Thank you Tru$t Fun!

Really, what goes through someone’s head when they create such a thing? Poor model, if someone made me wear that I would quit! Now I see why you hear about so many models using drugs and drinking.  [...]
