Is This Hand Sanitizer Slut Shaming Me?!

Urban Outfitters is selling this "Dirty Hand Sanitizer" as a $7 stocking stuffer. Do the tag lines, "Wait - was that slutty?" and "A gentle, reassuring solution," reinforce the notion that being a slut is bad and that doing naughty things makes you morally unclean? The label features only a woman. It's sans man, which further implies that only a woman can be a "slut." But wait - it's supposed to be a joke, it's made for people who get the joke, it's ironic!

The Top 10 Reasons I Am Hating Hipsters [Friday Faves]

There's a new plague making its way across college campuses from coast to coast. Take one step into your local incorporated coffee shop, vegan restaurant, Urban Outfitters or American Apparel store and you will be afflicted.

Shop Urban Outfitters for $12.99 or Less! [Budget Stylista]

Although the store itself has racks on racks on racks of sale clothing, the marked discounts aren't always too generous... $10 off a sweater is great, but when the starting price is $60, you're still paying a heck of a lot (at least in terms of the average college student's budget).

Bracelets & Bangles [8 Under $20]

I found I was lacking bracelets so I decided to make them my target. We've all seen "arm parties" making the rounds on the internet, and now is the time to stock up on your bracelets and bangles to throw your own bash.

If You Like This Expensive Store, You’ll Love This Cheap Store

I'm going to be honest with you -- my first thought after watching that Shopaholic film was 'so this means if I got a credit card, I could have amazing clothes like that too?' Definitely not the point, as every person I shared my revelation with was quick to point out. But what's a shopaholic on a limited budget to do? Figure out how to do it on the cheap!

Leather is one of the biggest fabrics for fall 2010. It is also one of the easiest to embrace because EVERYTHING can be made in leather: bags, shoes, leggings, shorts, jackets, skirts...the list goes on. And I love it all. Leather is sexy. It's edgy. And it makes everything look cool.

Fashion Porn: Doin’ It Out West

One of my favorite Spring 2010 fashion shows this year was D&G with their western wear inspired collection.
