You missed your chance! The eBay auction for Princess Beatrice’s crazycakes fascinator sold for more than $130,000. Proceeds from the auction will go to UNICEF and Children in Crisis charities through her Little Bee Initiative, which she set up for the purpose of the auction. Said Beatrice of the sale: “I’ve been amazed by the amount of attention the hat has attracted. It’s a wonderful opportunity to raise as much money as possible for two fantastic charities. I hope the winner of the auction has as much fun with the hat as I have.” No doubt. [The Telegraph] Keep reading »
Last week, I checked out the new Saks Fifth Avenue Off Fifth outlet store at Woodbury Commons, which is an hour drive outside of New York City. Woodbury Commons is an insane outlet destination shopping spot, and people bring friggin’ wheeled suitcases to tow their booty around. There are more than 100 shops there, but not everything is the deal you might think it is — it takes some maneuvering and smart shopping to get a really good deal. I found a Yigal Azrouel coat, which was originally retail priced at $1875 (ridiculous, I know), on sale for $370. If I knew math, I’d say that was a 85 percent discount or something. You guys probably hate it, but I think it’s a grown up and sexy interpretation of my Navajo craziness.
Anyways, I learned a thing or two about outlet shopping from the folks over at Saks Fifth Avenue Off Fifth and my day trotting around all 1,000 acres of Woodbury Commons. Keep reading »
The Cannes Film Festival finished up this past weekend, and the stars were out once again, beautiful gowns and all. There were too many dresses to bring together, so we’ve pulled together some of the best–and weirdest–looks for your enjoyment.
Music biz people know how to dress crazy like no other. Want proof? Witness the outfits worn to last night’s Billboard Music Awards. But this Billboard show was weird: Beyonce was demure, and even Ke$ha looked somewhat reserved (for Ke$ha). Was it pop star opposites day? Tell us what you think!
Beautiful Christina of the blog Second Skin Style uses her fashion site as “a little collection of my thoughts and outfits,” she explains. Her style is thrift store-eclectic. “I see patterns in everything and tend to think that in the end it all makes sense.” Lately, she says, “I’ve been feeling very hedonistic, and if you think about it, the winter months sort of bring that drive out in people. The cold makes it easy to justify a little pleasure seeking! I am trying to stay grounded though and not get too self-indulgent, but there are a few things I allow myself to dip into with abandon.” Check out Christina’s guilty pleasures after the jump!

Our friends over at Lucky might be braver than we are. They are really feeling the printed pants thing. Says Lucky’s Jenna Gottlieb: “This season’s crop of patterned trousers–while understandably intimidating–qualifies less as costume and more as refreshingly modern spring trend. And, surprisingly, these statement-making items are actually completely wearable.” Gottlieb’s got great taste, and she’s selected several cute, perfectly patterned pairs to try, including these pairs from Nic + Zoe (left), Asos (center), and Forever 21 (right).

Before you say, but Julie, I don’t WANT to steal this 1970′s model’s look: I know. It’s bright, it’s stripe-y, it’s slightly jarring to the corneas. But! There is something kind of cool and laidback and I-spend-my-summers-in-Mallorca about it, too. I’ve decided to update the look for the 2010s by toning down the color palette and giving it more of a nautical feel. I think you’ll approve. Keep reading »
