Wildwoods to Host Its First-Ever Sneaker Convention

SneakerConvention

The first-ever Jus Nice Sneaker Convention is coming to the Wildwoods Convention Center at the end of August. The one-day-only event promises sneakerheads the chance “to buy, sell and trade some of the most unique and high-in-demand sneakers available.”

Organizer and sneaker re-seller Justin “Jus Nice” Roper says he put together the event after attending sneaker conventions in other cities and realizing his town should have something similar. “I know there are a lot of kids around here who want to collect sneakers, but they never had an opportunity to have something like this here,” he says. “Before now, we’ve had to travel three, four hours to get to one.”

The 6 Most Ridiculous Things in Free People’s Home Collection (Including a $68 Stick)

Marquee`

These sticks are for sale. | Free People.

Every summer, my style veers off into bohemia, probably the last vestiges of my semi-hippie college self. It’s when I wear the two Free People items of clothing I own — a high-neck, sheer wisp of a dress and a lacy slip I layer with everything. But even though I can appreciate the store’s dreamy, summer-perfect clothes, I cannot forgive them their absolutely insane home collection, which seems like a huge joke they’re playing on us, laughing in their Navy Yard offices while we spend $28 on a bag of nails. Here are the six most ridiculous items in their decor lineup.  Read more »

I’m probably as skeptical as they make ’em when it comes to celebrity fashion lines and lifestyle brands. (I’m still disappointed by and slightly terrified of Blake Lively’s Preserve.) So when word got out that Reese Witherspoon was debuting a lifestyle brand, Draper James, I approached the prospect with the trepidation usually reserved for a wolverine. Or a snapping turtle.

But lo and behold, I’m back from the trenches and can report that a lot of the collection is actually quite cute. Read more »
