Fragrance reviews are silly, but sometimes, fragrance marketing is even sillier. What do “playful pastimes” and “nostalgia” really smell like? So from now on, we’ll be crowdsourcing our own fragrance reviews. Read on to find out what our office thought about the latest sample to land on our desk. This week, we’re testing out Viva La Juicy Noir by Juicy Couture.
Has their been an influx in cool-mom shopping of late?
We may all want to while away the hours prancing from one sample sale to the next, or loading our virtual shopping carts with an entire season’s worth of new duds. Of course, real life (and even realer bank accounts) get in the way. The Goods, our new curated daily feature, delivers one standout steal hand-selected for your quick and easy shopping pleasure. Today’s find: a see-through Juicy Couture box clutch that’ll make your shopping priorities transparent.
The holiday season means a never-ending rotation of parties — and all that bubbly has a tendency to lead to some less-than-classy situations. Thankfully, we’ve got Derek Blasberg to give us tips on etiquette, or in this particular case, eticat.
We’re pretty on the fence with this one.
Juicy Couture is going for a new look this fall. The brand has ditched their usual pastel colored, over-the-top and costume-y ads for a sleeker, more urban ad campaign.
We weren’t aware that anyone was still shopping at Juicy Couture, so we were a little shocked this morning when we found out the brand’s Fifth Avenue flagshop had bedbugs. And then, we kinda weren’t — because all that velour tracksuit karma was going to come home to roost sooner or later.
Sally Singer is getting into the swing of things at T Magazine, The New York Times‘ fashion glossy she took over about a month ago. The Times Company issued a press release not too long ago announcing the hire of Michelle Sanders as fashion director and Jacob Brown as features director.
We’d heard these things called Silly Bandz were all the rage, but until we stumbled upon US Magazine’s blurb on the growing craze of Silly Bandz among celebrities like alpha mom Sarah Jessica Parker — who wore a lime green one in the shape of who-knows-what — we had no idea how big they really were. And we’re all familiar with the domino effect that stems from a little bit of subliminal trend endorsements by celebrity moms.
We’re all for fashionable collaborations around here — especially those that bring some of our favorite designers back down to earth. It’s a total win-win, the large chain retailers can actually afford to pay the poor struggling designers and us consumers, well, we get to enjoy some democratically priced designer merch. So you’d expect we’d be completely over-the-moon that too-cute for words designer Erin Fetherston has been tapped to do a collection for a readily available mass-market brand.
Remember when all you wanted was every single color and style of Juicy Couture sweat suit the brand manufactured? Now, more high brow designers (no offense to the Juicy girls) are jumping on the sweatpants band wagon and designing their own versions; versions that work for both lounging and for more formal occasions.
Earlier this week, we reported that Stefano Tonchi would be replacing Patrick McCarthy as Editor In Chief of W magazine. Now the inevitable questions arise: what will W look like with Tonchi as Editor In Chief?
