Ugliest Dresses from Urban Outfitters

October 10, 2009

Urban Outfitters is so wishy-washy. Sometimes, they have cute stuff, and other times they have obscure hipster vintage crap that is way too overpriced. I’m a smart shopper so I only go there for the deals. But sometimes even the deals, and especially the dresses makes you think, “What were they thinking?”

Here’s my pick of the top 3 ugliest dresses from Urban Outfitters. Looks like their designers need to get back to the drawing board on these!


1. Looks like they got this floral print on-sale (at least I hope they did) because it hasn’t been around since the 80’s and early 90’s. Oh, and since when did throwing a zipper in the front of a dress become flattering?


2. Urban Outfitters idea of trying to make a Stewardess uniform more mainstream. No, I take that back, I’m being unfair to the Stewardess uniforms with this ugly piece of $&#*. There you have it again with the zipper and this polyester/nylon looking blend. You couldn’t have gotten more cheap, shapeless and just so boring.


3. If I wanted to look like an eggplant for Halloween, I would consider buying this. But then, taking into consideration its overpriced-ness, I would have to object. This shapeless frock makes skinny people look fat and fat people look fatter. I can’t understand why you would spend money on this pathetic excuse for a dress when Ralphs is giving away free grocery bags .


The Anytime / ALL the Time hoodie.

May 28, 2009

Picture 2I am perpetually a cold person, even when it’s pretty hot outside and sunny. I guess that’s no big shock since I had to move back to sunny California from cold New York. Anyway, I’m always looking for the perfect hoodie. My definition of the perfect hoodie is that it’s thin enough to wear ALL the time or layer, its super soft and cozy on my sensitive skin and it’s stretchy so that you can push up the arms and they actually stay.

People, look what I found at TARGET!

NOTE: Buy a size smaller if you like them snug because they will stretch out after continual use (which I know you’ll be doing!)

Cutest F’ing swimsuits.

101 things to do with ramen noodles

September 9, 2008

I happen to not be a poor college kid, and I happen to have a job – but despite the fact, I still love ramen. Not only because its cheap,  but I just love the taste. One of my roommates in college taught me a new way to eat it – throw away the sauce pack it comes with, drain the water and add soy sauce. This got me thinking and soon I was putting butter and parmesan cheese and creating other concoctions. Then I saw this book, 101 Things to do with Ramen Noodles, and I thought, I must have it! What a great way to utilize such a cheap, popular staple in my diet to make a whole new array of dishes!

LuLu’s super affordable, adorable online clothing store (*COUPON OFFER)

April 1, 2008

This morning I got an email from Ali from I am a big sucker for new online clothing sites (because let’s face it.. in New York without a car – online shopping is a huge blessing!). I headed straight for the dress section because that’s pretty much how I gauge a site on if I’d actually shop there or not. My findings? TONS of cute and very underpriced dresses. And with the summer coming up you can bet I’ll be shopping there pretty often. Oh and if you use the promotional code ‘urbanupdater’ you’ll get 15% off your entire order until May 15. You’ll also get FREE shipping over $75!


This little black dress is fun, flirty and a staple for almost every wardrobe. You can throw it on to go to a cocktail party, cousin’s bar mitzvah, birthday party, wedding… oh, the possibilities are endless. Anyway, everyone needs a little black dress for those unforseeable occasions. And for $60 bucks? This is definitely a hit!


Ok, so what’s not to like about this hot, sexy, sultry pink dress? I am a huge fan of pink and when the weather hits 85 degrees in New York City, there is nothing more that I’d rather wear than…well no clothes at all. But that’s not really an option walking out on the street, so this little hot pink number will do the trick. Dress it up for a party or dress it down for shopping and the beach, this dress is perfect for all occasions. Plus it’s only $27 bucks? What a steal!!!

And aside from the sweet dresses, has tons of affordable jeans, shoes, tops, accessories. You name it! Go stock up ladies, because summer is almost here!

skinny jeans gets second round of admirers

March 31, 2008

Skinny jeans have been a pretty big craze for the past… eh, i’d say 2 years. I got into them last year and I love my only (dark gray/black) pair of skinnies. I got a huge hole in the crotch (no idea how) and I was devastated, but with a little thread and the pinch and pin method I was able to somewhat fix it so no one would notice. But enough about me. For all of you who have been asking for SKINNY JEANS. 2 words: Urban Outfitters. Click here for a wide selection of affordable skinnies for all tastes. And if you want a bright bold color that they don’t have…. just buy a pair of white ones and dye them. It’s super easy and a great way to get a unique pair of jeans.
