Launched late last week, Disco allows you to set up messaging groups, then send and receive SMS texts among each other in one clean and organized fashion. The app may be free, but text messaging rates will still apply.
Highlights from the Diane von Furstenberg runway at the Fall 2010 New York Fashion Week. A bit of disco, retro flair with pop colors, prints, and bright floral chiffon. Gold lamé was all over the collection - from vests to mini-dresses. The collection also included an embellished variation of her famous wrap dress with sparkles and ruffled tiers.
I’m taking it back to the disco era with my black silk halter jumpsuit. This piece has been my stylish sidekick ever since I purchased it at a local San Francisco boutique a while back — I've worn it to a wedding, an engagement party, and on a date. And this evening, it's accompanying me on a girls' night out! So as not to be too ‘70s, I modernized my look via a black blazer, caged sandals, a silver tassel necklace, and stacked bangles.
Sure, shown together the Tsumori Chisato aesthetic can look like a magpie catastrophe, but dilute this collection with a "regular" coif and basics like black pants or a nice white tee-shirt elsewhere, and you've got that Chisato magic ready to turn you into a fashion superstar--we love the colors, we love the shapes, we love the insanity of it all. We like designers like Chisato and, say, Basso & Brooke, who show that dressing like a left of center, fashion kid doesn't necessarily mean ridding your closet of color in some Rad Hourani or Martin Margiela manner. Chisato gives credence to the claim that one can only truly be fashion forward with a little daring color or intense imagery. Chisato always feels so seventies and so the designer will probably never hear a bad word from us. Disco, after all, never goes out of style. We can't wait to see how Surface to Air puts together the Spring 09 advertisements. We think last Spring might be hard to beat.
There's nothing sexier than a man with moves. Dance moves, that is. So many people cite Saturday Night Fever as a favorite movie, but really, it gets kinda depressing towards the end, no? I guess they're just as romanced by the disco and the dance as I am. I do have an obsession with disco — what I would give for one night at Studio 54. What can I say, I love the night life. But back to Travolta. I have tried to memorize this dance routine, it's a goodie. Travolta had the looks and the bravado, but he also had the flexibility and the funk. Let's face it people, he gets down and dirty. Doesn't this make you want to go disco dance the night away? Go!
I recently had a long day of wine tasting in Napa Valley, got home around 7 p.m., and had to get ready to go back out again. As fun as a social life is, it can be exhausting and challenging.
Challenging, in the closet arena. I definitely have some go-to items for lazy Sundays — jeans, moccasins, cardigans — but a Friday night on the town? So I grabbed my black Corey Lynn Calter maxi dress, threw on tons of jewelry, a vintage clutch, a light-washed jean jacket (to dress the look down), and called it a night. And yes, I felt quite Fab.
This black disco dress, size small ($34), can also do the LBDisco. You don't have to be an expert to learn these moves. Plus, if you're not so sure about loud print maxi dresses, this caters to the trend in a more subtle way.
There are too many performers I either missed or still have yet to witness live. Jimi Hendrix, Elvis, and Nirvana are amongst the ones I will never see because, well, they are no longer. Led Zeppelin, Bjork, and Diana Ross are still on my list. Oh, Diana. Such a Fab diva. I love this quickie performance she did, with a fun Michael Jackson cameo at the end. From her sexy white Halston-esque dress (I've heard rumors it's Halston?) to the round white stage, it's all so very . . . disco chic. Diana's got the voice and the moves; my favorite is at the very beginning when she throws her head down then back up and begins to shimmy. Upside down, boy you turn me, inside out, and round and round . . .
Well, that is because you have not seen Sven and Helga! (That's what I like to call them anyway.) We posted this vid a long time ago, but it seems that Diesel jazzed it up to enhance its fabulosity and to shill some sneakers. Sven and Helga so thoughtfully walk you through some basic disco moves, my favorite being the perpetual pelvic thrust. And when their friends get up and the whole room's dancing, you can't help but get into the "disco feeling" yourself.
We've bedazzled cell phones, iPods, Bluetooth headsets . . . and now the latest item being blinged out is the earplug. The Royal National Institute for the Deaf (RNID) has launched a competition to find an earplug that's socially acceptable.
"Because of Bluetooth headsets and iPods, people are getting more used to the idea of putting things in their ears that are fashionable," said a spokeswoman. Designer earplugs may cost you a bit more ($20-$30), but it may be worth it for those who go clubbing often. Would you consider investing in designer earplugs or would you rather succumb to hearing damage?
