Fashion Secrets Of A ‘real Housewife’

The showcases Thursday, Friday and tonight also feature designers from as far away as Russia and several from San Francisco. Thursdays boutique show in the cavernous auto museum offered local clothing shops a chance to expand their audience. Chipotle Mexican Grill provided the nibbles, and martinis were served in plastic cups. There were some hiccups. The large velvet-roped VIP area left little room for non-VIP guests to navigate the pre-show party area. And Trumpette designer Stevenson, who is also a sponsor of Fashion Week, left in a huff, unhappy with his seat allotment.

Prada Iconoclasts The invitation said Harlem Renaissance, and the gin and bubbly were flowing at Prada’s newly renovated shops on via Montenapoleone. The pair of stores, men’s and women’s, were finished in September but only formally inaugurated in the presence of the fashion crowd. Live jazz wafted through the menswear store where a billiard table and card games were set up to suggest the back room to the Harlem Club — which was the women’s store down the block. Prada no doubt wants to keep its customers feeling indulged. The Prada Group this month reported that sales in its stores rose 12 percent last year to nearly 3 billion euros ($4 billion) — the lion’s share of its overall 3.6 billion in sales.

Nobody cares, they wail! What frustrating lives these people must lead if they think the only subjects that should be covered are ones in which they have an interest. My own interests are exceedingly narrow 80s films; 90s TV; the novels of Curtis Sittenfeld and Melissa Bank ; the essays of David Foster Wallace , David Sedaris and David Rakoff ; my dog but even shallow ol’ me accepts that other people have different interests. Furthermore, these people have as much right to find coverage of their subjects as I do of mine. Yes, Iwish there was more coverage of Saved By the Bell in this paper and, yes, I do find it frustrating that valuable newspaper real estate that could be devoted to the greatest hits of AC Slater is instead given over to coverage of unimportant things such as football but I deal with it, because I know other people are interested in football. So what I’m saying here is: try to develop some empathy and accept not everyone is interested or uninterested in the same things as you.

Just give men a few good suits, some shoes to go with them plus a few cool toys and theyre happy. Toss in a scantily clad young actress or two and men will sit and stare for hours. As for size, GQ is the biggest at 210 pages, Details has 204 and Esquire 184. But sometimes its not the size but what you do with it. We always liked Esquire because it tried month after month to outstretch its rivals . Marchs Style issue Editor David Granger does it again with plenty of real world fashion shot on guys we wouldnt mind having a cocktail with. A first-person account, albeit a conceptual rehash, of trying to find the perfect pair of jeans is a nice touch.

Special-edition Drake Shoes Not Actually Sold For $100k, Giveaway Winner Felt Uncomfortable Owning Them

On top of that, the misdirected hysteria over these sales made the seller of the second auctioned Jordans the white pair, not the black ones uncomfortable even keeping the shoes in his home. From Tyler Munro for AUX.tv : Toronto-based photographer Devon Little , one of two people to nab a pair as a giveaway at http://www.chicemma.com the Toronto Raptors Drake Night, says he wasnt planning on selling the shoes until a friend told him how much the first pair was going for online. While he calls himself a huge fan of Drake, telling us he listens to Nothing Was the Same daily, the realities of being a broke 22-year-old student with a chance to make a wad of cash too good to ignore. Little put his shoes up for auction and watched bids climb to more than $100,000 throughout the day, and thats when things got stressful. Devon elaborates: […] At this point [when the bidding reached six figures] I was very stressed. I didnt feel comfortable with the shoes in my house, so we took them out of the city and put them in a safe box.

Avery Flynn: Shoes, glorious shoes

To prepare him for the salty urban winter sidewalks, his owners had him try on some dog shoes. But walking in them, it turned out, presented a major challenge for the poor pooch. His attempt to get around with his paws trapped inside these foreign objects is pretty adorable (if a bit upsetting), but be warned: his owners laughter gets kind of annoying. You might as well just mute the video and turn on your own soundtrack. We suggest Take a Walk by Passion Pit. Latest from our Partners

There Is No Struggle Greater Than the Struggle of This Dachshund Trying to Walk in Shoes

These babies are probably the most famous shoes ever to make an appearance in a movie. So much so that there is a meme about The Wizard of Oz that boils the plot down to two chicks fighting over a pair of shoes. I’ve been lucky enough to see them on display in the Smithsonian, and I squealed out loud with delight. Don’t worry, my kids have no illusions about just how much of a dork their mom is. The Glass Slippers The original fairy tale is a bloody mess of people hacking off toes to try to fit into Cinderella’s obviously miniature shoes . Disney, no surprise, didn’t go that route.
