Categories: Good One

The brand new blog A little Honey has come across some awesome customized Obama Air Force One low-top sneakers. "Oh wow" is really all that can be said.

Barney's Warehouse Madness has Begun

Categories: Sale Away

Rather than Valentine's Day, which is lame no matter where you stand on the spectrum of involved-ness, let's think of today as Barney's Warehouse Sale Day. Yes, folks, it has begun, and we will drink to that, but let's not lose our heads. Racked has a report from the front-lines this morning, (actually, they have about six posts so far) where shoppers were lined up, waiting to get inside. People! The sale goes until March 2.

Fashion Week Recap: Toilet Paper Huge at Sean John

Categories: From the Front

If you've ever attended the shows at Fashion Week, you know that reading Lynn Yaeger's diary about that experience is a lot more fun that partaking in it first-hand. This time around, Yaeger gets distracted by Forever 21, dissed by Diane Von Furstenberg, sees a boob at Betsey Johnson's show, and witnesses the unbelievable at the Sean John show: a model makes it all the way down the runway with toilet paper trailing from her shoe! Oh, the horror. It's too good. (This reminds me of when my sister would pray for the baton-twirlers to drop their stick during the Macy's parade.)

But the best part might be this:

Project Runway Sucks

Categories: We Love TV

OMG, is that from American Apparel??

Here's the thing. I know I'm no great thinker. My entertainment choices are nothing to be proud of. If I had DVR, I would probably tape The Real Housewives of Orange County. When I see a heinous accident on the highway, my urge is to pull over and take photos. But Project Runway (which I love and will watch as long as it's on, despite the headline of this post) is beginning to offend my intellect.

Could Fort Greene be Home to a Really Good Flea Market?

Categories: Save the Date

The folks at Brownstoner have just launched a new blog, Brooklyn Flea, documenting the process of opening their flea market, which is scheduled for April 7. This is also an opportunity for y'all to chime in with your opinions. We are excited to hear that the space, in the Bishop Loughlin schoolyard on Lafayette Avenue is big—40,000 square-feet. We are slightly wary of flea markets that give a lot of space to local craft-type stuff. Maybe it's just us, but we want vintage furniture more than anything else. But there should be room for everyone here, and we are rooting for a flea market renaissance!

Project Runway's Asian: Fierce but No Cigar

Categories: We Love TV

Here is a picture of the mean Asian randomly sewing a bunch of denim onto the bottom of a jacket she probably snatched out of someone else's arms to begin with because, as she likes to announce, she's competitive.

Well, even though the fat guy made a dress that would only be appropriate for the love interest in a Color Me Badd video, he's hanging in for another week. It seems Bravo couldn't resist a bitch-off between Jillian and Victorya's heinous coat-dress-things. Jillian's might have been even uglier, but at least it seemed harder to make, and there you have it.
