I was about to make a joke about how these boots look like something the designers created with little scraps of fabric and leather they found on the floor of the factory, and then I read the description and apparently that’s exactly how these boots were made. So I guess I’ll choose a different snarky comment: these boots like they’re in the process of molting. Zing! [Luxury Jones Boots, $438, Free People]
Even though “glitter” and “flats” are two of my favorite words, I must admit I initially gave this project the side-eye, since I assumed they would leave a little trail of glitter wherever you walked (which might be kind of magical in its own way, but mostly annoying). However, the brilliant Sues from We Are Not Martha swears that isn’t the case: “The glitter is stuck on there like whoa (thank you Mod Podge!), and the shoes are still super flexible.” Sweet! Worries abated, I’ve got a pair of scuffed up flats that are about to get glittered like whoa. [We Are Not Martha]
I love Kristen Wiig for many reasons, and it’s been so interesting to watch her red carpet style evolve as her career grew from a “Saturday Night Live” cast member to a major movie star and Academy Award nominee. This outfit, which she wore to a “Friends With Kids” after-party, is such a fun throwback to 70s style. I especially love the color combination: vibrant orange dress, white blazer, and brown platforms. Find out how to steal her style after the jump! Keep reading »
Earlier this week we discussed the 10 things every woman needs to throw away. Now that you’ve cut down on some clutter and finally parted ways with your high school boyfriend’s Sugar Ray t-shirt, it’s time to talk about the things that every adult woman should have in her home.

I was shocked – shocked, I tell you! – when I discovered that Lands’ End Canvas is basically J.Crew but cheaper: super cute preppy stuff, quirky styling, good quality. Being cheaper than J.Crew doesn’t make Lands’ End Canvas cheap, exactly, but it is possible to find some great stuff for $50 or less.

The news that Dame Maggie Smith — aka the Dowager Countess — is hesitating to renew her contract for future seasons of “Downton Abbey” shook me to my very core. I mean, what would Downton be without her? A sad, empty shell of a show, that’s what. Here are 10 reasons “Downton Abbey” desperately needs the Dowager Countess … Keep reading »
How gorgeous and clever are these fresh tarts based on the Pantone color system? I love the intersection of baking and graphic design, even though it’s giving me a temporary case of synesthesia. My favorite flavor is blue, and my favorite color is banana! Wait, what? [Griottes]
“Just recently I started letting myself eat things from the minibar. When we were kids, we would never open the minibar. A $6 Snickers bar? But the other day I was in a hotel and I was staring at a Snickers bar, and I finally just ate it. Then it was like something in me snapped. I opened all these drinks. I thought: I can do it now. Now I’m all grown-up. I can eat things from the minibar.”
—Jennifer Lawrence, star of the eagerly anticipated “Hunger Games“ movie, tells Glamour magazine how her life has changed as a famous actress. As I mentioned here, I read the first Hunger Games book on my flight from Portland to New York and loved it. For the flight back home I bought the second book, Catching Fire, as well as this issue of Glamour, and by the time we landed I had transformed into a complete and total fangirl. Can’t wait to see Jennifer bring Katniss Everdeen to life on March 23rd! [Glamour]
