According to WWD, there is one thing that traditional shopping has over online purchasing. And that's instant gratification - the ability to find, pay for, and take your item home right away (or wear out of the store, if it's that good). But as reported today, that advantage may not count any more with the increase of same-day delivery options at major shopping sites, including Wal-Mart, Nordstrom, and Amazon.

While these e-retailers are only testing these models at the moment, it's exciting to think that you could order an item in the morning and be able to wear it, fresh out of the box, that night. Of course, there are a few hiccups in this shopping model. As Matthew Nemer, Wells Fargo retail analyst, told WWD, "The only way to make the same-day delivery model work is if there's a store. If you pick up from the retail store, it's always going to be closer to home." And, clearly, for those who do not live in

The world waited not so patiently for Kate Middleton's baby bump to show, and now that it has finally started making appearances, we're anxious about her fashion choices. So much so that WWD even ran a piece with designers' custom sketches for what the Duchess should wear. Granted Kate has had a much easier time dressing during her pregnancy than most because her body hasn't changed as drastically as others, but there are definitely a few fashion lessons we can learn from Kate. Pregnant women, please advise...

There was a time when denim jeans didn't come with a $200 price tag and the qualifier "skinny." Don't believe me? Ask Ulysses S. Grant or anyone else alive in 1873, the year Levi Strauss and Jacob Davis patented the blue jean. Over the past 140 years, the wardrobe staple has evolved from button fly to bell-bottom, and way, way beyond (wait till you see the guy with fire-breathing pants). But when it comes down to it, there's nothing like the basic blueprint. Durable, thick, unisex-the kind of cut that looks good on everyone, and particularly good on a few people. On Levi's birthday, let's reflect on the men and women who helped keep this great brand alive-hot celebrities and models. -Piper Weiss, Shine StaffRead More »from Denim Porn: Levis' Best (and Sometimes Accidental) Models

When I became a mother at 22, I still had a lot to learn about personal style. About adult style, I should say. The evolution of the way you dress can be affected by lots of different people and circumstances in your life, but some influences are stronger than others. And - believe it or not - some of my biggest style lessons so far came from my kid. Here are 7 things motherhood taught me about style:

Don't even think about wearing these items yet! Pssst, we're going to let you in on a little secret: It's still spring! Yes, we're all excited that the weather's warming up, and we're just as thrilled as you are to not be bundling up in a gazillion layers, but unless you live in a part of the country (or the world) where it's perpetually 85 degrees and sunny this time of year, the fact remains that is still May. Not July.

This means that while the sun might be out-and it well may be a glorious afternoon-we can probably all agree that it's not sweltering to the point where we desperately need to bust out shorts, little tank tops, flowing white maxi dresses, and Saint Barths-ready sun hats.
While we're all for swapping in some key spring pieces, wearing lighter fabrics, and retiring the heavy black tights when you're wearing a dress, we also believe in not jumping the gun, seasonally. That said, here are 4 things you shouldn't be

There was a time when Rihanna seemed to be buddy-buddy with U.K. retailer Topshop, but at the moment, the friendship has been put on ice. The singer is currently suing the brand for using a picture of her face on a T-shirt without her consent. However, as WWD claims today, the lawsuit is a bit more tricky than meets the face eye. The fashion outlet reports that unlike the U.S., "there is no right of personality" in the U.K., meaning that Topshop's use of Rihanna's photo is fair game - as long as the company purchased it, of course.

RiRi does not quite see it the same way, as using a celebrity's image does suggest an endorsement by association. Which may or may not be okay, but, hey, you should ask first. The suit will be officially addressed at Her Majesty's High Court of Justice this summer, where a decision will need to be made as to whether Rihanna has the right to know where her celebrity is

I'm going to begin by saying that I am wholly against "Barely Legal"-emblazoned attire for anyone, of any age or gender. I don't care if you're 18 or 87, it's just, well, gross. The concept 'barely legal' in and of itself is simply a porn-y, it's-legal-so-it's-okay loophole that supports the covert and overt sexualization of very young girls, and encourages and emboldens the closeted pedophiles who salivate over them. Just thinking about it makes me feel like I want to take a shower, quite frankly.Read More »from Sexy Baby: Hustler “Barely Legal” T-Shirt Sold in Toddler Sizes

So I probably don't need to explicate the manner and degree to which my head exploded when I saw the following post on Reddit under the title, "Looking for shirts for my 4 y/o daughter, I found this and physically cringed…"
At a second hand store. Toddler size 4. I grabbed it without even registering what the label said, it just looked like a good night shirt for the summer. Carried it around for about 5 minutes before I read the text
The one-and-only Cher turns 67 today. Cher does not need to use her last name, because when you have a fantastic voice, a great attitude, and a closet full of outrageous Bob Mackie creations you will long be remembered and adored. To celebrate Cher's 67th birthday, we are turning back time to revisit her 67 most gorgeous, scandalous, and over-the-top ensembles. Madonna may be "the queen of reinvention," but most of her outfits are downright boring in contrast to Cher's hippie chic duds from the "Sonny & Cher" days, her controversial Grammy looks, and even her recent dazzling tour costumes. Soak it up in one mesmerizing GIF or view Cher's magical transformation in slideshow form. Happy birthday, Cher! I got you, babe.
