Link Love: Swine Flu at Vogue, Tingling Thigh Syndrome in SF and Retro Swimwear

All the good reads from our feeds....

We hear from the HuffPo that swine flu has landed at the Vogue offices. We bet Sally Singer is glad she’s in San Francisco this week.

To add to the list of scary ailments you might be in danger of getting, here’s a new one: Tingling Thigh Syndrome. The culprit? Skinny jeans. Just ask San Francisco’s Parmeeta Ghoman, whose jeans-related affliction was recently highlighted on MSNBC.

With all the danger related to skinny jeans these days, we’re thinking you might want to opt for something else, like, say, skinny bracelets featured recently on Coquette.

We’ve all been experienced pain at the hands of good fashion (hello stilettos). Now the fashion industry is experiencing some serious pains of its own. Dolce & Gabbana are accused of tax evasion (again), Lacroix is bankrupt, Tiffany & Co. is struggling, there’s infighting at Versace and Giselle is $10 million poorer this year. All via the Cut....

Speaking of taxes we may want to evade, SFist leads us to ponder whether the nation will join 130 countries around the world and head for a VAT tax on all goods and services, from haircuts to herring?
