I believe everything in life.. whatever we do, we have to have a passion and there… Continue

I had the opportunity to attend CES 2009. A few days prior to my Vegas arrival, I'd been tweeting with Melissa Pierce and she invited me to interview Tony Hsieh, CEO at Zappos.com. It was an amazing experience.

While enjoying on a sea beach in spring, we all know that swimming and sunbathing are not the last things we crave for. Undoubtedly, buying and wearing a befitting beach wear only never gives your 'beach fashion sense' a finishing touch. There is more to it.

With New York and London living up to their respective reputations for Fall '09 amidst all of the burgeoning dilemma's brought on by the chaotic financial & political climate of the world, it was foreseeable that Milan would either go the sensible pragmatic sportswear route, or be trapped by it's over-sexualized, over-stylized extravagant musings of the past. What we seemed to have gotten is that many designers seemed to have been lost somewhere… Continue

Yuli’s post is yet another voice asking, “What defines ethical social marketing… Continue

We also love her strong brows, something we are always… Continue

While we may be vintage peddlers in essence, we would like to think of our aesthetic as far from retro, because after all, there is nothing intriguing about looking tarty, costumey or too precious and controlled. Nothing seems to excite us more than fashion week since it inspires our buys and gives us a feel of contemporary fashion's new direction. With the gut-wrenching status… Continue
New York Fashion Week may kick of the annual shows every season, but it's not normally until the London shows that we truly get excited for what's in store next season.

Watching PREEN rise to the level of respect it now garners after making it's mark on London's street chic scene over a decade ago, two aesthetic themes stand out: graphic prints and undeniably unique patterns. This witty update to the classic sweatshirt happens to capture both of those strengths with it's diagonal winged sleeves and abstract fishnet print while also channeling the body-con era.
