Arctic Elk Runners, Fall/Winter 2010 Preview

So Here's a preview of the new runners by Mor's Footwear, for you fabulous men out there. What makes these unique is that they are made of elk leather and elk suede from the North of Finland making them both durable and soft with a luxurious feel. I don't know about you, but I'm really diggin' the grey ones. Have a looksee at http://www.morsfootwear.com/collection.asp

Barneys X-rated Windows, Hide The Children!

According to The Post, that is. The NY newspaper did a hard hitting investigative report on the window display on the "offensive" images, only to find that an NY stylist describes them as "fabulous" and that the penis on the gorgeous male model is "beautiful."

Seriously, I laughed out loud when I read this in the New Yorker. Shocked was The Post reporter who viewed the windows that included images of Iman with her breasts exposed. People, keep in mind that it's a collage and you really have to look hard (no pun intended) for the breasts and penis to spot it right away!
