Nostalgia: Hypercolor Shirts

Nostalgia_Hypercolor

We are mildly obsessed with some of the ingenius fashion items of the 80′s and 90′s. Maybe because it was all candy and roses and everyone was loaded and happy back then. Or because it was just downright weird? Who knows. Who cares. Let’s just mentally frolic back to our hypercolor tees and their heat sensitive evidence markings. If you didn’t own one than... Read More

JustBecause_KateVsZooey

The new face of Cotton’s “Fabric of My Life” campaign Kate Bosworth is singing her way through their new commercials. Kate looks great as always but the jury is still out on her singing abilities. Ric Hendee, senior vice-president of consumer marketing for Cotton, Inc., said that Bosworth was “anxious” about her vocal talents, but he’s glad that... Read More

Obsessed: Alexis Bittar Liquid Gold Druisy Ring

Obsessed_Bittar_mini2_02031221

We have totally embraced the minimalist trend. There is a simple formula that predicates going to work in the morning—wake, shower, and dress, which usually entails a black slender-cut bottom and a gray slouchy top… and repeat. And while our garments have taken a back seat in precedence, we definitely find the time to wear a “good” accessory. So naturally (while we rarely... Read More

JustBecause_PradaMet2_032012

The Costume Institute at the Met’s much anticipated Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations 2012 exhibition is finally approaching. From May 10th through August 19th, the museum will highlight the strikingly congruent affinities of two Italian designers from different eras.

Nostalgia: Colored Denim

Nostalgia_ColoredDenim_010112

We asked our good friend Jessie Cohen, publicist extraordinaire and fashion afficionado, to tell us what her current throwback obsession is and she had this to say: When I was in 4th grade I had a pair of royal blue denim jeans that I thought were the best thing ever. I was awkward for sure. And yes, I had braces, but those jeans were my salvation. A pop of color in an otherwise... Read More

WTF: Hair Earmuffs?

WTF_HairMuffs_121311

We’ve often fallen victim to the “hairy eyeball,” but the hairy ear? WTF? A good friend (not Chewbacca) directed us to yet another odd fashion item. We thought the earmuff tended to be ridiculous. Then we were introduced to the hair earmuff. (We were thinking “Weavemuff” would have been more appropriate really.) This goes beyond our imagination, and we want... Read More

Ahhh. Now lift your jaw from the floor, clean up the drool and stop pawing at the monitor. We know he’s hot. But if you are lucky enough to have a sexy boyfriend all to yourself you can now clad his body in David Beckham’s underwear line for H&M. Not quite the same as having him there but enough to maybe inspire a hot make-out session. H&M will launch the... Read More

Karlie Kloss for Vogue Italia. Too Skinny?

JustBecause_Editorial_120111

In case you didn’t get the memo, Midwestern beauty, Karlie Kloss took it all off for her Italian Vogue Shoot with Steven Meisel. Lift that jaw off the ground and put the pizza down… cause let’s face it, it wouldn’t hurt to eat a couple less calories since Thanksgiving. Our question is simple, even though we sometimes would like to sew our mouths shut and... Read More
