Bridesmaid Shoes That Won’t Break The Bank

If you’re in a friend’s wedding, be prepared to spend big bucks, because you’ll have to buy everything from a plane ticket to your bridesmaid dress. And if the bride wants all her ladies in waiting to wear matching shoes, that’s another hundred bucks out the window. Hopefully you can convince her to go with a less expensive footwear option, like this ridiculously good-looking pair from Payless. That’s right, Payless. Lela Rose hand-picked 15 dyeable styles (and 64 custom colors) for the retailer’s Unforgettable Moments collection, and they all cost under $50, including the dye job and shipping. The Nathalie (pictured) is so cute we’d buy them even if we didn’t have to. [$44.99, Unforgettable Moments]

Inspiration Board: Dirty Dancing

ib dirty dancing g1 jpg
“Dirty Dancing” is a classic if there ever was one. Since a new, limited keepsake edition of the film hit stores today (which includes Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze‘s screen tests and tons of other special features), we decided to revisit the timeless wardrobe that Frances “Baby” Houseman wears in the 1987 movie.

Above: Jean shorts and a white T-shirt will never go out of style. (However, we might not decide to show off our stomach.)

10 Jumpsuits We’d Actually Wear

Jumpsuits and rompers are extremely divisive articles of clothing. Despite their surge in popularity over the past couple years, a whole lot of people still hate them. At one point I despised one-pieces, too. But then I found one that worked for me, and I was sold (they’re great because you don’t have to worry about remembering to cross your legs like you do with skirts and dresses). These 10 are more wearable than your average jumpsuit.

Karl Lagerfeld’s Shrine To Barbie And Ken

Karl Lagerfeld’s studio is featured in The Selby Is In Your Place, and there’s a preview of the space on TheSelby.com. When we first saw this photo, we thought, “Does Karl have a seriously weird Chace Crawford and Barbie obsession?” But then we realized it was a picture of Chanel model/muse Baptiste Giabiconi and a bunch of Barbies, which was part of Karl’s “Barbie and Ken” exhibit at Colette last March. But it’s still a little scary. [The Selby] Keep reading »

Cheery Nail Polish For Sunshine-Filled Seasons

Put away all your dark nail polish until next fall, because just like last year, J. Crew has anointed two colors of Essie nail polish as the shades of spring and summer. Punchy Pink and Russian Roulette look so bright and fun they’ll wipe away any lingering memories of the long, cold winter you barely made it through. Because nothing goes with warm-weather clothes like happy colors on your fingers and toes!

[$8.00 J. Crew]

Do You Want To See Average-Looking Women In Magazines And Movies?

Elle editor-in-chief Robbie Myers went on “Today” this morning to talk about body types and how curvier models are getting more attention in the fashion industry these days, with more womanly figures walking the runways at Louis Vuitton, Prada, and more. She said, however, that women reading magazines or watching movies don’t want to see bodies like their own in the media; while we don’t want to see anorexic models, we “respond more to women who are a little bit above average. … Seeing someone who looks like [the average woman] doesn’t actually send her out and make her want to go shopping.” We’re gonna guess that Elle won’t be jumping on the plus-size model bandwagon anytime soon.

5 Lies We Tell Ourselves While Shopping

When we’re out shopping and a shirt catches our eye, we’ll tell ourselves anything to justify buying it, even when we already have at least 25 other perfectly good tops hanging in our closet. We’ll find a way to convince ourselves to make a purchase seem practical if we want it badly enough. What lies do you tell yourself when you want to buy something that you don’t really need?
