Who Knew? Jessica Simpson’s Clothing Line Is Hugely Lucrative

We were pretty impressed and surprised by the following facts about Jessica Simpson:

Her style endeavors have been something of an undercover winner. Apparently, in 2010, her empire of fashion and cosmetics will net $750 million.
She is the only celeb fashion entrepreneur to top $1 billion in annual sales.
Her net worth i…

New Ford Focus Will Use Recycled Jeans For Interior Furnishings

Do you ever wonder about clothing you give away to the Goodwill? Who will wear it next? Or will it just get trashed? It would be cool to think that in your next drop-off, your blue jeans get recycled by becoming part of a car. That may sound weird, but Ford is apparently releasing a…

“Charity Sex”: During The Holidays, Should Sex Be Treated As A Gift?

Here’s a curious article over at Fox News, “Charity Sex: The Gift That Keeps On Giving.” “Charity sex” (not to be confused with “pity sex”) is, according to the author, “a gift you give to your partner, and to yourself. Maybe you do it because he’s all wound up, and sex relaxes him. Maybe you…

Would You Wear: Prada Customizable Sunglasses?

We’re reluctant to admit it out loud, but isn’t the point of wearing designer glasses to wear designer glasses and feel the smug satisfaction of your status logo beaming from the corners of your eyes? Prada has just released customizable sunglasses so that the wearer can choose two letters to show off. This would the…

Latest In Collaborations: Colosseum x Tod’s

We hear that Tod’s, the producer of Italian luxury goods, and the Colosseum (yes, as in the) may be teaming up. OK, so not really in the form of a collaboration, but apparently, Diego Della Valle, the company’s CEO, has offered 25 million Euros to Italy to restore the ancient structure. Thankfully, this doesn’t sound…

We can’t tell you where these Beatles shoes come from, or where to get them, but they are–in a word–awesome. [Nicoolest]…

Do Not Want: Kill Yourself And Die Necklace

We did a double take upon seeing this necklace sold by Colette, which reads “Kill yourself and die.” (It also comes with a piece of artwork with the same slogan.) If there’s a reference to something here, we’re missing it. If there’s an artistic explanation, we’re not seeing it in the product description. Either way,…

Eyeshadow With A Taffy Texture And Cute Packaging To Boot

A little birdie told us that Jelly Pong Pong’s eyeshadow would be irresistibly cute. For starters you have an ultra sweet bird detail sitting atop the pot, making it a perfect display item for your vanity. Second, the product features a unique blend of melted-down shadow, coconut oil, and vitamin E, which creates a “taffy…

MIT Smarties Create Interactive Wallets

Raise your hand if you’ve ever avoided looking at your credit card bill (easier now, thanks to automatic payments) or bank balance? We’re oftentimes guilty of not managing our money as best we could, and we hate to use technology as the culprit, but you can’t deny that money is becoming increasingly abstract with…

We Heart These Only Hearts Boxers

We sometimes think that the sexiest thing you can wear to bed isn’t the see-through nightie or the fancy lingerie, but rather the laid-back, basic stuff. Like these Only Hearts boxer shorts. They’re natural, comfy, and would, without a doubt, make us feel sexy. Who’s with us?

The Versace Family—Italian Mobsters?

The Versace family—a veritable Italian fashion dynasty—has seen its fair share of scandal and drama (deaths, unfortunate bouts of plastic surgery—we’re looking at you, Donatella). So the rumor that the Versaces are involved in the “’Ndrangheta,” which WWD describes as “the equivalent of the Sicilian Mafia,” actually seems believable. Apparently, an interview with a former…

Vogue Suggests Skipping The Pantyhose This Winter

Apparently, in October, Vogue ran a story that gave “practical advice on how to do as New Yorkers do — and dare to bare your legs this winter …” We’re not sure which NYC women they were talking about exactly, because as far as we understand this is a practice for crazy people. Now the…

I See London, I See France … And Queen Elizabeth’s Underpants

Why celebrities should never, ever accidentally leave belongings behind: they will surely end up on the internet or up for auction. That’s what’s going on with a pair of Queen Elizabeth’s underpants—if you can even call them that—that she apparently left on a plane way back in 1968. For some 40 years, they had bee…
