A Bra for Every Boob

Nene Leakes in one of her more conservative looks

Nene’s breasts always seem to be front and center in all of her outfits, and not in a good way. In last night’s season opener of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, I saw no less than four instances of Nene’s huge, saggy boobs. Not that having boobs is a cause for disgust–but when they are shown in the most unflattering way, it makes you cringe. With all that cash, has no one clued her in on the myriad of bras out there? Girl, get some support!

The Fedora: Perfectly Gangster

Amber Rose sports a fabulous staple: The fedora

It can be a task to find that perfectly sexy, effortlessly-looking hat. The fedora can come off as ridiculously cheesy or incredibly chic-and sometimes add an extra dip of class to an otherwise boring outfit.

Shopping: Et tu America?

Anna Wintour makes decisions behind the comfort of her Ray Bans

Rumors are swirling that the directors of the CFDA had a bow wow on how to control prices in high fashion retail. Apparently, designers are none too happy about the endless sales, reductions, and discounts dished out throughout the year to us, the consumers. Anna’s solution? Retail sales relegated to 2 times a year, a la Paris.

[Anna asked of the group] “Could someone lead a committee that would make ground rules for retailers when the discounting starts, and then all the retailers can agree to it?” Wintour asked.

When CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg pointed out, “That’s illegal,” Wintour said: “Is that something we can change? We have friends in the White House now.”

According to a Vogue spokesman, Wintour was merely alluding to designated days for retail discounts that are already in place in certain countries including France and the United Kingdom.

“That may be OK over there,” says Vano Haroutunian, a New York lawyer focused on the apparel industry. “But here, it sounds like collusion.”

Without sales, the general public would likely not buy designer goods at all. Bad idea, Anna. Very bad.

Hitting a Hi Marc

From Marc Jacobs’ Dont Miss The Marc line

One of my favorite things to do in NY is stop by the frenetic Marc by Marc Jacobs store to pick up any number of inexpensive accessories, trinkets, and gifts. I love that I can load up without seriously unloading my wallet. So how cool is it that Jacobs has just released a bridge line of under-$200 clothing and accessories? Added goodies include tights, bangles, and tees. Below is a preview courtesy Fashionista
