individuality and style with praticality.

Clothes Lounge is always on the lookout for primarily British designed and affordable fashion to add to its range and the highly original styles and designs from Disaster Designs fit the bill perfectly. Born in the summer of 89 in a haze of tie dye and a tangle of dream catchers, Disaster has reinvented itself through the trends and fads of the last 20 years defining itself always as a lover of quirky and unusual things, reflected in the current collections. The Paper Planes range has an airmail inspired design and the words stitched onto the front that read "return to sender". Disaster Designs’ Songbird collection incorporates intricate designs on each bag with handwritten notes, musical scores, vintage roses, beautiful birds and other vintage illustrations. From mini bags for a unique everyday accessory to generously sized overnight bags the ranges combine individuality and style with praticality.


Zimbabwean model

Kuda Katanha is a Zimbabwean model based in Philadelphia, PA who launched her career only in June of 2010. Less than six months later, she's already featured in photo shoots and beauty pageants for clothing labels in New York, NY and even came in as a finalist at the Miss ZimUSA 2010 pageant in Washington DC. And to celebrate it all, well, she just released a calendar for her growing legion of fans!

The African Queen, as she is known in the world of entertainment, is a petite 20 year old beauty who played basketball, soccer and netball, and even joined the swimming and track & field teams while attending Avonlea Primary School & Mabelreign Girls High in Zimbabwe. After her family relocated to the United States when she was 13, Kuda also added cheer-leading to her list, cheering along some veeeeery lucky athletes at Downingtown East High School in Pennsylvania. She credits her love for sports and the outdoors directly as a catalyst that keeps her looking and feeling catwalk ready.

Outlet Shopping

Honest-to-goodness outlet brands and prices, not the type you find in surplus shops where most of the items have their tags cut, or have the wrong size, or if you’re unlucky, fake items that are being passed on as originals. I recently visited this mall and was pleasantly surprised to see that it has outlet stores.
Across Mango outlet is an store for Benetton, Sisley, and Nike. I found the prices still a bit high for an outlet store even though most were at least 50% off. The selection was limited so I went to the next outlet store: Plains and Prints. At this outlet store where items are sorted by color, what you see is what you get. Most items are either the last piece or the last size. All items are at 50% off although there’s no sign that says so. I had to ask the sales lady which ones were on sale and she told me that everything was half the price tag. There’s supposed to be a Guess outlet store but when I went to both stores (the one for kids and the other for adults), I couldn’t find any item that’s priced outlet store.


a stylish homage to Cool Britannia

Drivestyle for Her and Him.

The tapered Ladies' Frontwoman Jacket and the Men's Frontman Jacket will rock any outfit - sporty or elegant. These versatile garments are really two jackets in one and can be worn either as a cool street-style jacket or as an elegant blazer. Three interchangeable badges and a rigid collar with a characteristic bonnet-stripes design make it easy to change the look of the jackets. Two outside pockets offer plenty of storage space while on the road, and there is a special pocket for the MINI key. Made of soft cotton, the Ladies' Campus Sweat Jacket in light grey and the muted dark grey Men's Campus Sweat Jacket feature the popular college look. The casual sportswear jackets with a tonal cut and sewn Union Jack motif on the back are sure to draw glances with features such as a "MINI Rocks" badge and a Union Jack embroidery print on the upper sleeves. Further details include scratchproof press studs. The black Ladies' Stage Light Longsleeve and Men's Stage Diver Longsleeve cut a fine figure on any stage. Feminine cut, shiny "MINI Rocks"
