This weekend I was informed, via a celebratory email, that my Tumblr blog (where I post feminist quotes, haute couture dresses, terrible jokes, and pictures of Connie Britton) is now five-years-old. My first thought? Awww, they grow up so fast! My second thought? Damn, my life would be so much different if I’d never signed up for Tumblr. I mean, not only could I have earned at least two PhDs in all the hours I’ve wasted laughing at kitten GIFs, but there are so many things I know and understand now that I never would have known if not for Tumblr.

See this white T-shirt here? I bet you thought it was just a standard plain white tee you’d get in a Hanes 3-pack, didn’t you? Siiiiiiiigh. Could you be any less fashion savvy? This is obviously a “hip hop t-shirt,” designed by Kanye West in a collaboration with French fashion brand A.P.C. It’s made of cotton, so it will shrink when you wash it, and, oh yeah, it costs $120. Now I bet you’re thinking, no one would pay that much for a white cotton t-shirt! Wrong again, my friend. Kanye’s collection sold out almost instantly and demand was so high the A.P.C. website briefly crashed. Proof that he actually is the God he claims to be? Perhaps. [A.P.C. via DListed]
Salma Hayek has been kiiiiiilllllin’ it, fashionably speaking, in all of her recent appearances to promote that movie that rhymes with “Thrown Ups 2.” I really loved the simplicity of this outfit she wore to Katie Couric’s studio: an hourglass-shaped black dress, sky-high beige heels, and gold bangles (not to mention those big, bouncy curls!). It’s a great look for a date night, and would flatter so many different figures. I found a fabulous plus-size dress to recreate Salma’s style, and the best part? You can snap up this whole outfit for just a little over 100 bucks! Shopping details after the jump… Keep reading »
One of my weaknesses has always been eccentric little shops with tapestries hung in the front window and oh-my-God-are-those-real human skulls displayed on shelves. Bonus points if there is a woman behind the counter who resembles a character from “Hocus Pocus.” I could spend hours smelling all the essential oils and digging through the assortment of weird, witchy merchandise. I recently bought a porcelain palmistry palm statue for my desk at just this type of curiosity shop, and I thought it might be fun to round up some other home decorating pieces with a similar vibe. Get all the shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »
I always feel a little let down when I see photos of Nicole Kidman at events and premieres overseas, because you guys have no idea how much time I spend hanging out at the Nashville Whole Foods’ salad bar hoping to “accidentally” run into her and Keith Urban. When I realize she’s been out of the country for the entire time I was pretending to carefully examine the cherry tomato selection, I feel a bit cheated, you know? But hey, she’s gotta pay the bills, and when her trips abroad provide fashion eye candy as gorgeous as this exquisitely beaded light blue dress she wore to a dinner in Berlin, I can almost forgive her for leaving me all alone at the salad bar. Almost. [Photo: Fame Flynet]
