You know how the saying goes ‘sex sells’, but does it really go too far.  Recently, my roomate and I were watching a commericial and it was so sexual that we would have never imagined that it had anything to do with perfume or jeans.  All we said was, “What’s with that?”  I believe that you are still able to sell those products without all the excess sexual content…its soo weird.

Twitter goes Couture

The Italian Issue of Vogue has a very interesting cover for this month. It’s a collage of models taking pictures of themselves. Gisele Bundchen makes an appearance, hiding her pregnant belly. An editorial inside is rumored to also have been shot in the same Twitpic style. This is a new idea for fashion, especially magazines.

Alexander McQueen’s Alien Shoes

These amazing yet painful to watch shoes debuted on the runway of Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2010 line. Even Lady Gaga wore them in her new video for “Bad Romance.” Before the pop star wore the shoes, there was a demand for them by many women who wanted to buy them as art pieces. These shoes are 10-inch stilettos that appear more eye-friendly than foot-friendly.

Looking For that Perfect Peacoat For that Upcoming Winter Chill?


Ladies, that winter chill is around the corner so its time to get that coat out of the old closet… or maybe its time to spruce it up a bit and go hip and fashionable. If your looking for that perfect peacoat or leather jacket, have no fear because, I have done my research and found a place that is fashionable and cheap (and when I mean cheap I mean reasonable prices for our pockets.) Its Overstock.com.

As a college student, saving a few dollars is what you always want, so why spend more than you have, when you know you could save the extra cash for next semester’s books…ahem! And invest in a coat from Overstock.com. By the way make any purchases on the site and only pay $2.95 for your entire order. So what are you waiting for?
