Susie Bubble posted about Writtenafterwards and designer Yoshikazu Yamagata's special projects, and this giant bra and undies set was so incredible we had to re-post. Imagine driving through the country and coming across a truly humongous pair of grannie-panties blowing in the breeze. It would be enough to make you wreck your car. (Via Style Bubble.)

This year, we're selling exclusive Peace One Day T-shirts, and all proceeds go to the Peace One Day campaign.
I have yet to ever see a playsuit that really makes me say WOW until I spotted this haltered number from BLAND. Designer Teddy Willoughby has become a fast favorite of mine since I saw his first show and he knows exactly what he's doing, especially if he made me fawn over a playsuit. X - Jen

I don't think anyone (apparently not even Madonna) can pull off these LV bunny ears quite as well as Daria Werbowy has for Flare Magazine. Maybe it's the leather pants or that she'd look amazing wearing a burlap sack but this cover has me sold. X - Jen

If you're in NYC tonight, stop by our store at 14th St. and 6th Ave. to catch a free, in-store performance by Amanda Blank. The trash-talking Philly rapper is back on the East Coast before she starts touring with Matt & Kim, so you can see her on what's almost her home turf. Show starts at 7pm. Don't be late, or Amanda will be pissed! Kidding, kidding. She won't care, but you'll be mad at yourself.

For her latest project, jewelry designer Stephanie Simek asked five different musicians to create original songs, then packaged those songs on a cassette tape wrapped around a steel pendant. The song can only be heard if the necklace is taken apart, but each locket comes with a CD that contains all five versions. Sounds pretty good.
It's Monday. We need all the eyeshadow we can get.
