Here’s another one to add to your list of ridiculously amusing Tumblr blogs: Goths Up Trees, which documents the fascinating phenomenon of, well, goth people sitting in trees. It’s only a couple weeks old, but already well stocked with photos that are graded on a 5-star rating system, taking into account such important factors as fog, velvet, eyeliner, tree height, and presence of a rat.

A few years ago my friend Katelyn and I started our own New Year’s Eve tradition. We stay in, make dinner, drink wine, and spend the night reflecting on the last year and making up fun hippie rituals to usher in the new one (I hear this year’s festivities are going to include a ceramic chalice). Laid back NYE celebrations like mine might not require sequins or high heels, but they do require cute, comfortable basics, and slippers sturdy enough to pop out to the store for more wine if necessary.

2011 was an exciting time for hair. This year brought us gorgeous waves, major volume, feather extensions, and neon highlights, and nowhere were the trends more dramatic (for better or for worse) than in Hollywood.

New Year’s Eve is a great excuse to dress up. Yesterday we featured a disco ball-inspired outfit for those of us who like our NYE ensembles to be visible from space. Today we have a slightly more understated look, featuring dark lace, a dreamy fascinator headband, and fun flashes of gold. It’s perfect for classy soirees and cocktail parties–just add black tights for a boost of warmth. Click through for details!

New Year’s Eve means a lot of things: reflection, rebirth, resolutions, parties, flirting, champagne singing, and perhaps most importantly, SEQUINS. Add a little festive sparkle to your outfit this weekend with one or two sequined accessories, amp things up with a pair of sequined heels, steal the show in a sequined dress, or channel your inner disco ball and wear them all at once.

I started watching “Justified” because my boyfriend has a huge crush on Timothy Olyphant, who plays the main character, Raylan Givens. By the end of the first episode I’d discovered that it’s humanly impossible to not have a crush on Timothy Olyphant, but I was also intrigued by another character: Raylan’s ex-wife, Winona. Not only does she have the best name ever (I would know), she’s smart, tough, complicated, and she’s got great style: her court reporter job calls for pencil skirts and pretty blouses in a muted palette.

Infinity scarves, which consist of a singular loop of fabric, have gotten so popular that it’s actually becoming difficult to find a scarf with two separate ends. I, for one, have been loving this trend — infinity scarves are cute, cozy, convenient, and when you throw them on the ground they kind of look like a portal to another world — but the other day my friend said they reminded her of a giant bird’s nest around your neck, and now I can’t shake that visual. Plus, if normal scarves are phased out, all the fun ways to wear them will be rendered obsolete. So, what’s your vote on infinity scarves? Love ‘em or leave ‘em?
Christmas carols are nice, but they’re a little out of touch with the realities of modern life, don’t you think? I mean, red-nosed reindeer, frosty snowmen, jingling bells, and little drummer boys? Whatever. I think it’s time for an update. Ready to sing about real holiday topics like awkward political discussions, chaste sleeping arrangements, and horrifically bad gifts? Read on for three modernized Christmas carols! Keep reading »
Lace is showing up everywhere right now — dresses, tights, gloves, skirts — but I’m especially loving the way it’s being used in necklaces. The look of a dainty piece of lace skimming the collarbone is so striking and feminine. Here are 10 lace necklaces handmade by Etsy artists, and trust me: they’ll look equally gorgeous with a little black dress or a little black T-shirt.
