How To Get Featured On _________ [Insert Style Blog Name]

There was a time a couple years ago when getting featured on The Sartorialist was a goal for many a stylish New Yorker. I got lucky early and was snapped the week after I moved to the city, but friends and workmates alike were left scheming, stalking and plotting to run into Scott Schuman while wearing the…

A Cute Pochette For The Bare Necessities

When all you need is enough purse to hold some cash and lip gloss, leave your duffel bag-sized tote behind and pick up a pochette. (It’s like a clutch, but even tinier and, thus, more adorable.) Pochettes are our go-to toters for a night out, and this Marc by Marc Jacobs checkered one is our…

The Happy Medium Necklace

Though few attempt to find it, there is, in fact, a delicate balance between a simple pendant and a statement necklace. This Lee Angel multi-strand necklace with its medium weight baubles and general feeling of pretty lightness hits it on the nose. You can wear it dressy or casual and it will never look too…

A Love Affair With A Wrap Dress

Why do we love wrap dresses? Let us count the ways: 1) they’re expandable and contractible, meaning they work during bloated times and thin days; 2) they always flatter our cleavage region; and 3) more often than not, they’re actually comfortable. Why do we love this wrap dress in particular? Because it features our three…

Boys Like Flowers, Too

A pretty crystal vase is all well and good, but something a little more fun is often in order. These homme/femme vases are both cute and cheeky, turning the classic man and woman bathroom symbols on their heads by associating them with something pretty and lovely-smelling instead of, well, toilets. You can buy them separately…

Beauty Test Drive: Peter Thomas Roth Complexion Clearing Pads

As if bikini waxes weren’t inherently embarrassing enough, some of us (read “me”) may or may not have ingrown hair situations that make the whole thing all the more uncomfortable. Perhaps in an effort to put me out of my awkward misery, one of the lovely wax ladies at The Skin Spa suggested Peter Thoma…

Sofia Coppola To Direct New Dior Fragrance Commercial?

Rumor has it that Sofia Coppola will be directing another Dior fragrance commercial, this time starring Natalie Portman, Dior Parfum’s new ambassador. Those of you who obsessed over Coppola’s last Dior commercial (above), like we did, will be a little bit thrilled about this news. Coppola and Portman were both spotted filming in Pari…

Oak & Co. Gives Young Designers Exposure

The hardest thing about being a new designer is not so much the creativity — if you’re good, you’re good — it’s getting exposure for the awesome clothes you’re creating. Some designers with amazing wares actually struggle for years just to get their clothes in front of the right eyes. New website Oak & Co.

Can’t Get Enough Of These Crochet Booties

Few and far between are the crochet accessories that manage not to look like hippie-wear. These Candela NYC booties, however, expertly walk the fine line between something that belongs in the closets of people who went to Woodstock and pretty-chic. The ribbon laces, sleek shape, and floral pattern make them a total win in our…

Freak Out: Kate Moss To Star In Reality TV Show

Kate Moss, perhaps the most over-exposed yet somehow mysterious model of our time, is venturing into the realm of reality TV. Moss won’t be hosting her own show — the gods are not that kind — but she will be making a guest appearance on Great British Hairdresser, a show slated to be hosted by…

Pissed that their uber-expensive tech toys shut down in intense heat and sun, three iPad users are suing Apple for everything from false advertising to breaching consumer protection laws.

Quick Video: How Many Hipsters Can You Fit In A Car?

Someone has finally asked the question on all of our minds: How many hipsters can you fit in a single, brightly colored car? Even if we never find the answer, at least we’ve learned that “with such an amazing field of vision, it makes being judgmental of people who aren’t as cool as you…

Dolce & Gabbana To Outfit Chelsea Soccer Team

Soccer players are so in right now. Though the World Cup definitely deserves the brunt of the credit for that, we have no idea why it took so long for people to obsess over what is essentially an army of incredibly fit, hot men. Now that the world has arrived at the fairly obvious conclusio…

The Top 40 Pop Culture Preppies

Despite our ardent attempts to stave off the return of “preppy” as a trend, it seems the popped collar is upon us and seersucker is having a full-on-moment. Again. Rather than continuing the noble fight to make pastel pants for men a thing of the past, we’re joining the multitudes and getting our prep on.

Justin Timberlake Directs 3 Horny Tequila Ads

We kind of started approving of everything Justin Timberlake does after he shed his N’Sync-era brillo pad curls and excessive denim. The upcoming ads he directed for his 901 Tequila, however, throws his infallibility back into question. Justin seems to have followed the “when in doubt, make it about sex” logic that so many…

In her ongoing bid for world domination, Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka is launching a line of shoes and handbags. The shoes will be released by Marc Fisher and sold for $80-$140 in department stores next spring, but the details of the handbags are still unclear.

Who Would Wear Boob And Butt Helmets?

As if these butt and boobs motorcycle helmets weren’t icky enough on their own, the boob helmet comes complete with a nipple piercing. Before seeing this particular piercing, we didn’t even know that nipple piercings could be particularly gaudy, we’d always though it was a standard ring sort of situation. Now we know better. One…
