Kourtney Kardashian Gets The Deluxe OK! Photoshop Treatment

Another celeb has taken to Twitter in order to address outrageous magazine Photoshopping. But while Demi Moore fought against the claims that she was altered, Kourtney Kardashian is readily admitting that her body in real life does not match what appears on the cover of OK! magazine. And to make matters worse, in the race to secure exclusives, it seems that editors failed to actually ensure the rights to the story. “One of those weeklies got it wrong again … they didn’t have an exclusive with me,” tweeted Kourtney. “And I gained 40 pounds while pregs, not 26 … But thanks!” In addition to their inaccurate figures, the magazine also altered her cover image, making her appear skinnier than she really is.

Who Said Laptops Can’t Be Bookish?

In a world where Kindles and Nooks are taking over the antiquated habit of reading actual books, it’s nice to see that technology and the literary can play nice. [Twelve South] Keep reading »

It’s no secret that online shopping is becoming the new standard. From Net-A-Porter to Gilt Groupe, you never have to leave your couch in order to buy new clothes.

It Takes Shoes 1,000 Years To Biodegrade!?

If I had to estimate, I would assume I currently own and wear about 40 pairs of shoes, between all the boots, sandals, heels, and flip flops in my closet. You can say I’m a bit of a shoe addict. But after learning how long it takes for soles to compost, I’m re-thinking my love affair. According to Thomas Briel of BIO-D Biodegradable Shoes from Simple Shoes, your average footwear sits in a landfill for about 1,000 years before they decompose. Just think about that for a second. Over the course of a lifetime, I’m sure people accumulate hundreds of shoes. Multiply that by the population of the world, and we’re quickly destroying our lovely Earth just with what we wear on our feet. Because of this, Simple Shoes designed an entire collection of shoes that only take 20 years to compost, instead of the overwhelming 1,000. Now that I know the damage my shoes are doing to the environment, I’ll really think twice about buying a pair I don’t actually need. Will you? [Treehugger] Keep reading »

Are Bootights Really Necessary? Eh, Maybe

Remember when we put our thinking caps on to create the five new clothing mashups fashion would see in the future? Seems we forgot one that’s just oh-so necessary. Winter calls for boots galore, leading to many pairs of ruined tights from zipper snags and rubbing. Bootights are here to solve the problem. While most will simply, you know, wear socks over a pair of tights, Shelby Mason was disgraced during a business trip after she removed her boots in airport security to display a pair of white tube socks. The horror! Thus, Mason invented bootights and the shame of wearing white socks with black tights was forever gone. If you’re convinced you actually need these, buy your own pair at Dillard’s.

Here’s Your Chance to Steal Carrie Bradshaw’s Wardrobe

Everyone knows that Sarah Jessica Parker’s wardrobe for her character Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City is beyond enviable. From the high heels to the brilliant accessories to the odd little pieces that stylist Patricia Field works in, each and every item is a gem. For most, many of these pieces are impossible to own given their high price tags and designer names. But now, with the upcoming release of the second film, a boutique in London called Start London, is giving away ONE Halston Heritage dress. If you’ve seen the trailer, its the light pink floaty number that Carrie wears along with a silver turban. Here’s the problem – you’ll have to be the perfect size—a 10—for the dress to fit, but we say, good luck to all! [Grazia] Keep reading »
