Walmart Admits "We're Not a Dept. Store," When It Comes To Fashion

While Walmart may currently be the most popular shopping destination in the country, it still hasn’t shaken the stigma among many clothing customers of being a place you go for cheap sweats, underwear and tee shirts.

Guys Love Spanx

Guys Love Spanx

According to Neiman Marcus, people might make jokes about Spanx for men but they’re flying off the shelves. The men’s fashion director at the department store told the New York Times, “We are selling them as quickly as Spanx can make them. Men may not be talking about it, but they’re buying it.” The president of Freshpair, a website that sells “torso-enhancing” tees, says “profile-enhancing” underwear is also quite popular. [More]

No, A $1,000 Purse Is Still Not An Investment

No, A $1,000 Purse Is Still Not An Investment

Around this time last year, we posted an article about how luxury goods companies are marketing their products as “investments” during the recession, rather than indulgences. It’s an interesting way to position four-figure handbags, but a bad use of the word “investment.” The Los Angeles Times’ Your Stylist column recently brought out this meme, describing an expensive handbag as an investment and “your new best friend.” Should it be?

Will You Wear A $600 Disney Dress Based On One Of Its Movies? How About In 5 Years?

The future of Disney merchandising will hit a lot more demographics than the mostly kid-oriented stuff of today, if Disney has any say over it. Disney has already angered theater chains by shortening the theatrical release window on its new movie-like product Alice in Wonderland, cutting into theaters’ profit models in order to bump up the DVD release date. But CNBC notes that it’s also launching the “most wide-ranging array of consumer products ever” for a Disney flick–and that includes thousand dollar necklaces, nail polish, and dresses that cost as much as $600.

South Butt Rebuts North Face

South Butt Rebuts North Face

“South Butt,” sued by North Face for trademark infringement, has filed a delightfully nyah-nyah answer to the apparel maker’s legal claims. While North Face asserts that South Butt is sewing confusion and mistake among consumers, and deceiving them, the parody company, intent on a 1st Amendment defense, insists that that “the consuming public is well aware of the difference between a face and a butt.” The rest of the fun filing, inside… [More]

Great, Now Demi Moore's Torso Is Missing

In all of the chatter surrounding the Demi Moore W cover controversy, many people have insisted that her vanished hip is part of a perfectly natural pose. They were correct. The photo shows the natural standing pose… of a runway model in her mid-twenties. It appears that Moore’s head, legs, and arms were superimposed on the hips and torso of model Anja Rubik.

How To Ruin Your Jeans On The Cheap

How To Ruin Your Jeans On The Cheap

If there’s one thing my grandmother and I agree on, aside from the fact that Marlena being possessed was a dumb storyline on Days of Our Lives, it’s that it makes no sense to pay top dollar for deliberately weakened/damaged denim. The ConsumerReports blog ShopSmart has found a website that offers tips on how to distress your jeans at home, like using a pumice stone to cut holes, or a cheese grater to create patterns.
