The controversial site surveyed 52,390 of its female members and went on to create a list of the top ten most popular places these women like to shop.

In today's column, I introduced you to Philly's "Project Runway" candidate, Dom Streater. The 24-year-old Streater is a Moore College of Art and Design grad from West Philly. In a video show for the Lifetime reality show, the shoe-loving Streater shows you around her West Philly home. (You can also take a tour of her closet.)
Streater is young, but Christian Siriano, the show's most popular winner, was only 21 when he took home the "Project Runway" crown. And that bubbly personality will hopefully serve her well when it comes to screen time.
Streater is currently a freelancer who designs the Halycon Collectin. Want to see some samples of Streater's work? Take a gander at her portfolio.

And here we thought, "Hurry up with my damn croissants" was the line to be reckoned with in Kanye West's latest hit, "I Am God." But the story behind the song just got more intricate and interesting.
The self-adoring artist revealed to W magazine that the track was written after an "unnamed designer" invited him to his runway show one condition - if West would decline other fashion shows that season.
“Cause it’s like, Yo! Nobody can tell me where I can and can’t go,” West shared. “Man, I’m the number-one living and breathing rock star. I am Axl Rose; I am Jim Morrison; I am Jimi Hendrix. You can’t say that you love music and then say that Kanye West can’t come to your show.”
