The Easy 2010 Update On The Braid

As we get further and further into 2010, hairstyles are shifting to the side. (Examples: The ubiquitous side-swept hair at the SAG Awards this past weekend and all the side-updos and hairstyles at the spring 2010 fashion shows, especially at a certain Mr. Alexander Wang’s show.) Now French street photographer and illustrator Garance Dore is finding women with a genius and very easy way to DIY the trend: side braids. Simply braid your hair to one side of your head and let it rest on your shoulder. The more unfussy and mussed-up, the better. This is my new morning go-to hair. And you don’t have to have insane-o long hair (à la the chic girl, above)—this looks cute on shoulder-length hair, too! [Garance Dore]

Reuse, Recycle And Rekn.It Old Sweaters is a re-knitting service begun by graphic designer Haik Avanian. How does it work? Easy. You print a shipping label from his adorably designed website,, slap it on an envelope containing your old, tired sweater, and send it off to Haik. Then his mom (yup, hi mom!) transforms it into a new and “useful object” for $30—January’s “useful object” is a scarf—and then he ships it on back to you! Next month, depending on your votes, it may be an iPod cozy, cut-off gloves, or even socks. Genius, no? [] Keep reading »

5 Style Tip-Offs: How To Know She Wants A Divorce

Real Housewives of Orange County” fans already know the (unsurprising) news—Tamra and Simon are headed for splitsville. Not only has Tamra carried on this season ad nauseum about how depressingly bad her marriage is (was?), but a week ago, Simon actually up and filed for divorce! Now he’s taken to his Bravo TV blog (yes, he has one apparently) to blab about the situation: “In fact, she has told me recently that she is happy being single. And even the way she has dressed lately (she does look really hot) tells me that being single is what she wants … ” Huh. He got me thinking, does the way a woman dresses and puts herself together actually tell the tale of a relationship in trouble? After the jump five maybe-sorta style and beauty tip-offs … [Bravo TV] Keep reading »

You Need It All: Target’s Newest Home Line

51yslqty5yl aa400 jpg
Seriously, it’s awesome. Target’s newest home line, Regency, is a whole slew of interior amazingness. Think mirrored, black/white details, lots of fret work and zebra. While some of the line isn’t available online anymore (I’m hitting up a Target store stat!), there’s a lot to be had, like this “Dupioni Fret Work Pillow” that’s a whopping $20. Check out more sleek steals …

Adore It: Ann Taylor’s New Jewelry Line

Gotta say, Ann Taylor has really been stepping up its style game lately! I happened upon the brand’s spring 2010 jewelry line and immediately fell in love. Witness the above necklace, $128. (A tiny bit steep, but if you head on over to the site, you can get an extra 25 percent off all the sale pieces.) And here’s my thing: J.Crew has some pretty jewelry, but you see it all over the place—this stuff feels a lot like theirs, but you won’t be one of a million people wearing it. See a few more pieces, after the jump! Keep reading »

The Catorialist: Kitties Got Mad Street Style

It was only a matter of time! As you may have guessed, The Catorialist is a street style blog … all about cats (and a parody of The Sartorialist, obviously). Pretty photos of kitties with Sartorialist-inspired captions like, “On the street … Full tortoise, Chinatown, LA,” “The model … Bowery, NYC” and “On the street … Milan.” Truly hilarious, not to mention a nice little wake-up call for those of us who get a tad too serious about fashion, you must check it out. Like, now. [The Catorialist] Keep reading »

How To Get Kate’s Reverse Cat Eye!

Check out Kate Hudson‘s super sleek and architectural-feeling eye makeup at this past Sunday’s Golden Globes. I’m loving it—the look is sort of like a reverse cat eye. Not only are her inner rims lined, but the liquid liner is extended beyond the inner corners of her eyes (rather than the usual outer-corner cat-eye look). Different, fresh, totally cool, no? Get the quick how-to, after the jump! Keep reading »

Fab Or Freak Show: Shoulder Jewelry

I’ve talked about my l-o-v-e, love for shoulders before—they’re the one body part that, no matter what your weight or gym-going schedule is, are always looking sexy. So, imagine my excitement when I stumbled across jewelry for your shoulders! Babette Epaulette designed an entire line of various shoulder jewelry from chains, mesh pieces and feathers—you can wear ‘em over a sleek and snug jacket or paired with a strapless dress. They really draw attention to your shoulders—but I’m not sure if I think it’s a good kind of attention? What are your thoughts here, sexy or sort of silly? [Babette Epaulette] Keep reading »
