Alice + Olivia’s Modern Take On Barbie

Okay, so Alice + Olivia haven’t designed a new Barbie doll, but the styling of this model in its resort lookbook really reminds me of a classic Barbie. Alice + Olivia has swapped the black and white stripe swimsuit for a black and white stripe romper. The blond hair has been replaced by a big, yellow floppy hat. But both the model and the doll still know the power of great sunglasses and earrings. See the rest of the Alice + Olivia resort collection here. Keep reading »

Debbie Gibson And Tiffany Are Looking For An Opening Act!

 

Dust off your bowler hat because Debbie Gibson—I mean Deborah—is going on tour with fellow ’80s icon, Tiffany. Deborah just posted this video calling fans to audition for a spot on the Journey Through the ’80s tour bus. To enter her Guitar Search, you have to upload video of you singing and playing one of her songs and tweet the link by July 9. Wait. Am I having deja vu? This is exactly like a reoccurring fantasy I had when I was eight. Only Facebook and Twitter and YouTube didn’t exist, so my discovery was destined to occur at the Scottsdale Mall while performing a set consisting of Debbie’s “Only In My Dreams” and Tiffany’s “Could’ve Been” accompanied by my karaoke machine.

Random Single Gal Recipe: The Juicy Lucca Burger

Really, this burger recipe is my take on the Juicy Lucy which is what a burger stuffed with cheese is commonly called. I’ve added a little heat with the inclusion of jalapenos and cayenne into the meat, opted for an English Muffin instead of the usual bun, and topped it off simply with a slice of ripe tomato. So, now it’s the Juicy Lucca, although she wasn’t allowed to have any because it has onions in it. Obviously, you can adjust this recipe so that it’s for as many people as you want, but in true Random Single Gal Recipe style — and considering it’s Independence Day — the following is if you’re just cooking for one. (Also, as I live in an apartment with no outdoor space, it’s also tailored to a stovetop griddle pan.) Happy 4th of July! Keep reading »

Your Own Stylish Patch Of Shade

It’s officially beach season and I plan to spend hours reading trashy novels and soaking up the sun. But I have no intention of speeding up the wrinkling process. While lounging, I protect my skin with tons of sunblock and my own little patch of shade. This simple straw hat is a must-have for happy, safe, and stylish sunbathing wherever the season may take you.

Nicole Richie Launches House Of Harlow 1960 Handbags

Proving that she’ll take her very successful House of Harlow 1960 brand as far as demand will allow, Nicole Richie has added a collection of handbags to her fashion and accessories brand. The handbag line, which includes everything from crocodile clutches to large leather bags, has the bohemian vibe Nicole is known for. The concept behind the collection was to contrast luxury with casual, using young calf hair and relaxed vintage leathers. But skins aren’t the only focus–great attention was also paid to the hardware. Gold and black studs adorn the larger bags, and jaguar heads close clutches. The line is slated to arrive in stores mid-July, and seems to have something for every woman, a goal Nicole said she had in mind while designing. Prices will range from $150 to $625.
