I’m not sure if it’s God or Anna Wintour or the Pantone people who come up with the trendy color names every season, but this fall the fashion world is going crazy for “oxblood,” a deep burgundy that we can only assume  is the same hue as, well, ox blood. Beautiful color, totally gross name, right? But I guess it could be worse. Here are 10 alternative names for oxblood that I’m very glad I won’t be seeing in Vogue anytime soon… Keep reading »

As I’ve mentioned before, there are very few moments in my life where I’m not wondering, Where the hell am I? So it was with great interest that I read about a pair of “No Place Like Home” GPS shoes that can guide you to any destination with a Dorothy-esque click of your heels. Creator Dominic Wilcox explains how the magical footwear work:

“After uploading your required destination to the shoes via a piece of custom-made mapping software and a USB cable, the GPS, which is embedded in the heel, is activated by a heel click. It then communicates to the wearer via a ring of LED lights to point in the required direction. The shoe with the GPS wirelessly communicates with the right shoe that has a progress bar of lights to show how close you are to the destination.”

Right now the shoes are just a prototype, but I need them to become a reality, like, now. In the meantime, I might have to DIY my own by duct taping my smart phone to the toe of my red sequin pumps. “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home…” [Dominic Wilcox]

Hair Dos: 5 Easy Hair Updates For Fall

Whenever the seasons change I get the urge to change my hair, and my yearnings are always strongest in the fall. Maybe it’s the stack of thick fashion magazines bursting with hair inspiration, the new clothes I’m adding to my wardrobe, or the fact that it’s finally cool enough to bring my hairdryer out of timeout and retire the sweaty top knots of summer. Just in case you’re also in need of a change, here are five super easy ways to update your hair this fall…

Fall Into A Slouchy Cardigan In A Perky Color

This cardigan combines the best thing about fall fashion (slouchy cardigans!) with the best thing about summer fashion (bright colors!), which makes it the perfect transition piece to bridge the seasons. I’d love to throw it on over jersey dresses or dark denim skinny jeans and flats–pretty sure I’d find a way to wear this baby pretty much every day. [$90, J.Crew]

I’m inclined to love this dress because the shape is totally retro, and I think the color is absolutely stunning against olive skin. That being said, the color combined with the texture of the ruffles makes for a very frothy dress, does it not? I wouldn’t be that surprised if I found out it wasn’t actually made of fabric, but layers of peach buttercream. And now I’m hungry. Anyway, what do you think of Vanessa’s fashion confection?

Have you ever gone to the movies and sat behind someone who’s talking and texting and throwing popcorn and thought, I wish a ninja were here to kick that guy’s ass? Well if you’re watching a movie at the Prince Charles Cinema in London, your wish could very well come true, thanks to a new campaign called, fittingly, “Invisible Cinema Ninjas.” Here’s how it works: volunteers dressed in black lycra “Morphsuits” are given free movie tickets in exchange for hiding in a dark corner of the theater and keeping an eye on the audience. If anyone dares pull out their cellphone or start up a side conversation with a friend, the ninja will leap out of the darkness and incapacitate them with a karate chop to the throat give them a stern warning. “The ‘Cinema Ninjas’ may sound ludicrous, but they have been a real success in clamping down on those ruining films for everyone else with inconsiderate behavior,” says the theater’s PR rep.

Damn, first the hot tub cinema, now cinema ninjas? London really knows how to make the most of the movie-watching experience. [Oddity Central]

Meet The World’s Tallest Mohawk And 10 Other Huge, Crazy, Colorful Hairdos

This is Kazuhiro Watanabe. Last week he shattered the world record for tallest mohawk with his massive spike of hair that reaches 3 feet, 8.6 inches above his head. Pretty amazing, right?

Between Kazuhiro’s new record and NASA’s mohawked hottie, this punk rock hairstyle is definitely having a moment (in related news, it might be a good time to buy stock in Aquanet). All this recent ‘hawk talk got us in the mood to ogle some other crazy mohawks, so we found 10 more (literally) hair-raising hairdos, including a couple past record holders. Click on the gallery to check ‘em out! [Huffington Post]
