Would You Spend Up To $300 On A Friendship Bracelet?

We love these super fun one-of-a-kind friendship bracelets by designers Frieda and Nellie, though ranging from $150 to $300, are these pricey bracelets worth the splurge? The combination of saturated colors, rhinestones and vintage charms are fantastic, but something inside me keeps saying we should just be making these ourselves. Keep reading »

We Love It When You Say Yes

This super cute necklace has just the right amount of cheekiness to make it right up there on the wants list. We love the laser-cut black acrylic; the sans serif font and drippy bits are simple and bold at the same time. And at 30 percent off, this accessory is at a price that makes us say oui!

Would You Wear This Over-The-Top Chain Vest?

We love chains, lots of them. We love mixing metals and harnesses too. But does Arden B go overboard with this chain vest? All those beads and tassels and pearls and chains of different lengths around the chest pulling and drooping at the same time. And what would one wear with it? You could always pull a Christina Aguilera and wear nothing underneath it. Yeah, that makes it useful. Not! [$59, Arden B] Keep reading »

Jennifer Aniston looks phenomenal while shooting her new film “Wanderlust” in NYC. Her layers and color combinations are perfect East Coast fall style.

The clothing alone makes us want to check out the movie, but if we needed a second reason, Jennifer is co-staring with comedian hottie Paul Rudd. Yes, please.

Above, Jennifer looks warm and stylish in a great mix of camel, brown, gray and black. And the leather detailing at the belt and shoulder flaps makes this peacoat lust-worthy. Take a look after the jump at four more awesome Aniston outfits. Then tell us — would you wear any of these looks?

Get stunning legs in your life by taking notes on Leighton Meester’s amazing floral lace stockings. We love the combination of textures and prints in her outfit, but fun stockings like these could just as easily be the item that brightens up an otherwise drab ensemble.

We’ve put together a bunch of stocking trends for you to take a look at — all tights under or around $20, so you can get some high style without the high price!

Totally DIY-Able Nail Art

I love nail art—been doing it for years, um, been getting it DID for years. I had the raddest, weirdest nails waaaaay before Willow Smith was on the scene. Swarovski crystals, 3D designs that were painstakingly done one petal at a time, multi-color hand-painted scenes, etc — all done by my amazing nail artist Thomas. I had it all. Or so I thought! Enter the totally DIY-able nail marbling technique. Keep reading »

A Brief But Fond History Of A Jacket, Plus A Super Fast DIY!

diyfurcollar 120110 m jpg
Originally bought by my best friend in the mid-’90s while she was in high school, if this Calvin Klein Jeans jacket could talk, oh the stories it would tell. Fortunately, for my girlfriend and me, it can’t talk, so our secrets are safe. But the history still shows through its frayed hems, missing buttons, and crinkled body — things that make me love it even more. This jacket has been everywhere from rock concerts to breakup sceness and everything in between. Every fall, I get excited to throw it on, and it never disappoints; the classic lines and military green color are tried and true and it has a relaxed, cool, effortlessly chic vibe. But what about when fall turns into winter, temperatures drop, and lighter jackets get put away until spring? May I suggest DIYing it? Take a look after the jump to see how you can stylishly bring a lighter jacket into winter with you, and then tell us, do you have a favorite article of clothing that’s been with you through thick and thin?
