Shopping Guide: On The Hunt For The Perfect Clutch

Shopping Guide: On The Hunt For The Perfect Clutch
As a bonafide no-car-having city girl, I have a tendency to carry a big bag containing everything I could possibly need throughout the day. But I fell in love with this clutch, and now find it difficult to carry a large purse in this crazy heat. I prefer a clutch with special accents or details that can fit under my arm lightly and securely. Here are 10 great clutches you might want to consider.

The Only Beach Bag Necessary

We used to schlep our stuff to the beach in a regular canvas tote bag that never really had adequate space. Then we came across Fashionable Notes’ Beach Bag, which has made beach-going a more practical and easy experience. The Beach Bag is large enough to hold a couple of towels or large sheets, a magazine and a book, a water bottle, and a sandwich and snacks with room left over. “Beach Bag” is stylishly printed on the side of the bag with water-based ink. The inside is coated with a vinyl-like product that’s easy to clean, and there are rubber feet at the bottom so the bag doesn’t actually rest in the sand. Now, we have to stop ourselves from going to the beach just to show off our Beach Bag.

An Argument In Favor Of Makeup & Accessories At The Beach

Though I’m rarely seen in public without makeup, even I realize the ridiculousness of wearing a full face of makeup on the beach. I was fully on Team No Beach Makeup … until last Monday. After a day of relaxing on the sand and in the sun, I looked haggard. My eyes were sunken with small bags, and my skin was oily and shiny. Luckily, I had sunglasses and a hat to hide my mug. But it made me reconsider my stance on beach makeup. Here are the makeup and accessories that will keep you looking beautiful at the beach and on the way home. Of course, if you’re actually going swimming, which I hardly do, then forget the makeup, but make sure you have these accessories at hand.

Awesomely Affordable: Swimsuits For Less Than $50

We like to go shopping for swimsuits this time of year because, in an effort to make room for new merchandise, retailers drastically reduce the price of swimwear. It’s really difficult to find a sexy and well-constructed one-piece swimsuit for an affordable price early in the season, but now there are a lot more available. Check out some of our favorite one-piece suits for less than $50.

LuAnn de Lesseps Transforms Into Danielle Staub With New Blond Hair

Luann De Lesseps of “The Real Housewives of New York City” has abandoned her brunette cropped look for blond extensions, transforming her into Danielle Staub, formerly of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Maybe Luann is thinking of taking up residence across the Hudson River? Keep reading »

Inspiration Board: Retro Anjelica Huston

I didn’t become aware of Anjelica Huston’s fabulousness until she starred in the 1990 film “The Witches” and “The Addams Family” in 1991. But this model and actress has been mesmerizing audiences with her beauty and acting skills since the ’70s. I love looking at old photos of celebrities, and fell for this easy look Huston is wearing in the photo above. This fuss-free, casual look inspired me to find a slightly dressier option with silkier fabrics. Find out how to get it, after the jump! Keep reading »

Inspiration Board: “The Talented Mr. Ripley”

We love vintage fashions and movies set in the past, so “The Talented Mr. Ripley” is one of our favorite films. We enjoy watching the clothes Gwyneth Paltrow and Cate Blanchett‘s characters wear as much as we enjoy Tom Ripley’s cunning manipulation. Instead of drooling over the 1950s wardrobe, we found some very similar fashions we can actually buy.

Got Any Easy, Fuss-Free Exercise Tips?

Earlier this year, I decided that my personal trainer wasn’t a necessity. I told myself that I could save the money I paid him, while employing the exercises he taught me and taking advantage of BeFitNYC, NYC’s free or low-cost fitness program. But you know what? I got lazy … big surprise right? So, now I’ve got a tricycle tire around my mid-section, a droopy butt, and fat knees. I need help! Please reveal your easy, fuss-free, and dare I say fun at home/free exercise tips in the comments. Hopefully, these exercises can be performed in a 3′ x 5′ floor space because that’s all the room I have. And look out for a post of all the good tips next week. Keep reading »

17 Photos Proving Rihanna Can’t Stop Touching Herself

18 Photos That Prove Rihanna Can't Stop Touching Herself

Rihanna wants one thing to be very, very clear — she loves her body and she is not afraid to touch it all over when she’s on stage. For example, at the Wireless Festival in London this weekend, RiRi grabbed a handful of her own practically bare ass because, well, why not? RiRi’s fingers repeatedly wander down to her nether regions and backside when she’s on stage. Maybe the pressure of having thousands of eyes staring at her makes her yearn for a sweet release? We have no clue, but one thing’s for sure, she has no problem giving herself some loving.
