The recession isn’t stopping girls from buying new summer clothes in the contemporary arena. Whether it’s a $475 dress from Intermix or a $40 bra at Rapunzel’s Closet, specialty store owners are beginning to see an uptick in traffic and a range of best-selling items that are moving quickly.
Store: Shopbop.com Location: The Web Bestseller: Current/Elliott’s roll shorts. Retail Price: $178 The Appeal: “Denim cutoffs are a coveted basic this spring season and it’s no surprise our customers liked Current/Elliott’s the most,” said Kate Ciepluch, Shopbop.com’s fashion director. “The boyfriend style can be rolled or frayed hem exposed, and provides a broken-in look that’s just right.”
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
