Documentary Sends Fashion Bloggers to Work in Sweatshops

 

Fashion bloggers often have to purchase a ton of fast-fashion pieces in order to keep up with the changing trends. Clearly, they aren't the only ones who are guilty of this. Most consumers pay little mind to where and how the affordable clothing they love to purchase, is made. A Norwegian documentary called Sweatshop: Deadly Fashion, took three popular fashion bloggers and sent them away to work in, you guessed it, sweatshops. Realizing the inner-workings of the fast-fashion industry should make us all feel at least a little shitty about how grossly consumed we are with consuming crap (literally, sometimes) with little regard for laborers who slave away in order to cater to our demand. Where do you stand on this issue? Are you capable of changing your shopping habits?

Karl Lagerfeld Gives a Lesson on Couture and Ready-to-Wear

Karl Lagerfeld Gives a Lesson on Couture and Ready-to-Wear

Karl Lagerfeld took a moment to explain what makes something a couture piece (because a bunch of crappy, douchebag t-shirt labels in the 2000s ruined the word) to Vouge. Basically, it's a lot more work. Side-note: When Uncle Karl talks, it always feels as though he really wants to open every statement with, "Listen betches, because I'm tired of exlaining."  Am I right, or am I right?

Accessory Trend: Round Bags

spring 2015 accessory trends

Karen Walker, Verasce, and Rebecca Minkoff were just a few of the labels that rolled out some round bags in their Spring 2015 collections. Clearly inspired by the eighties, these circular purses are interesting looking, and totally practical considering they're often more forgiving when it comes to shoving stuff into them. From evening clutches, to everyday carry-alls, the options are a plenty when it comes to executing this trend.

Drew Barrymore: "I've Never Been a Big Designer-Label Person"

Drew Barrymore: "I've Never Been a Big Designer-Label Person"
“I’ve never been a big designer-label person. [Someone got me some fancy Cheddar cheese and] I was like, this is too jazzy for my taste buds. I could tell it was from the fromagerie, and I was like, no, I just want some good old supermarket Cheddar. I still love a fistful of flowers from the side of the road, but I’ve also come to love ornate flowers. I love the marguerite daisy, but I love a peony, too, and one’s five cents and the other is $5.”

The Sag Award Red Carpet Looks Were WAY Better Than Those at The Globes

The Sag Award Red Carpet Looks Were WAY Better Than Those at The Globes

Don't get us wrong, there were some beautiful dresses at The Golden Globes this year but, they were mostly comprised of the same old, silvery, sparkly stuff we're used to seeing. The pant suits worn by the likes of risk-takers like Emma Stone and Lorde gave all of us looking for something more sartorially exciting, life. I think some starlets heard our cries and decided to take a more fashion-forward approach with their selections for the Sag Awards and we're so pleased.
