A.P.C. and Aesop's new Post-Poo dropsWhat do a French fashion house and your latest bowel movement have in common? Unfortunately a lot more than you'd imagine.
A.P.C. has teamed up with Aesop to create Post-Poo Drops, something they're describing as "an aromatic, botanical formulation to combat the malodorous." It's currently available in A.P.C. and Aesop boutiques for $29 a bottle. According to Aesop.com, "This discerning formulation of essential oils combines a powerful aroma with disinfecting and anti-bacterial properties. The crisp, citrus peel notes are fortified with rich floral elements to effectively neutralise disagreeable smells."
In other words, you drop some in the toilet after you make a #2. And what exactly does this have to do with fashion?!
We know fashion people would like us to think they don't poop, because they also would like us to think they don't eat. Apparently the Paris-based clothing company hopes to help their customers keep up the illusion that their sh*t don't stink. Not the worst consumer

We love eco-friendly fashions, but since they're not always easy to come by we thought we'd pay tribute to our planet with actual green accessories. With spring underway, green accents are a great way to ease into color without overdoing it. Whether lime, olive, forest, or emerald, it is easy to go green.

Prada's new smoking lips heels. Photo courtesy of NordstromWe've heard of statement heels, but the latest stilettos might be saying a little too much. Last week we saw celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model wearing Christian Louboutin's Sex heels. The five inch pumps literally spell out "SEX" in crystals across the toes. As if either of those famous ladies need to drill that message home.
