Cheapskate: Yoox

Much like an endless online sample sale, Yoox.com plays host to scores of designer duds and regular person prices all the time. Now, however, even their sale stuff is even more on sale and the deals are a little ridiculous. Sizes can be a bit tricky to find, but if you’re willing to e-dig for a little bit, you’ll definitely find something for you. Our favorites after the jump. Keep reading »

Inspiration Board: The Guidettes Of “Jersey Shore”

I woke up this morning, looked in the mirror and couldn’t help but dispiritedly think: “If only I could throw a really dark fake tan, some rhinestones and a pouf on this situation. Maybe then I would be happy …” OK, not really. But I did come across yet another picture of Snooki and finally realized and even appreciated the effort that goes into looking like that all the time. And when it comes to such dedication, attention must be paid. How it has taken us this long is unclear, but what matters most is that you now will finally have a definitive guide to looking hideous all the time “Jersey Shore” style. Keep reading »

Style 911: How Do I Make “Menswear” Feminine And Sexy?

“I keep wanting to try the menswear-inspired trend, but every time I try things on I feel like a manly cater-waiter. I really need help rocking that look in a sexier, more feminine way. Thanks!”– Laura

Beauty Test Drive: Aveda Dry Remedy For Winter Hair

If your hair is at all dry or lackluster, you need to check out Aveda’s Dry Remedy shampoo, conditioner and hair mask. Now. It is, I kid you not, the best haircare combo I’ve ever experienced in my life. (And given that part of my job involves testing out beauty products, this is no small statement.) The line is a replacement for Aveda’s now-discontinued Sap Moss set, which certainly hydrated hair, but was actually thick and creamy to the point of feeling a little oily. With Dry Remedy, they’ve worked out those kinks and the result is a rich, all-natural line that leaves no heavy icky residue to deal with later. I did balk a bit at the high price initially — about $80 for all three bottles — but I can honestly say that my hair was noticeably softer, shinier and more lovely-smelling after a single use. If you’re looking to switch up your shampoo, this is it. [shampoo: $24; conditioner: $24; hair mask: $26, Aveda] Keep reading »

Leather has been pigeon-holed for too long, and we’re here to liberate it. Too often, it’s confined to shoes, belts and bags rather than allowed to experience its full potential as the material for anything and everything else. I understand that cotton is the “Fabric of Our Lives” and all, but leather should at least get to be the “Fabric of Our Nights,” don’t you think? Check out these awesome, sometimes unexpected leather items for further convincing.
