Hello from Paris! I’m spending the next month traveling around Europe and this beautiful city was the first stop on my journey. I’ve never been here before and instantly fell in love with the beautiful architecture, friendly people, and endless croissant supply, but the best part? The fashion—oh, the fashion! Women here really do step up their style game, and it’s inspired me to update my wardrobe too. These are the key pieces I’ve seen strutting by me on the sidewalk these past few days. Click through to get the look…
Me: I like your cape.
Model: Thank you.
Me: It’s very Empire Strikes Back.
Model: What is that supposed to mean? Keep reading »
We’ve seen a lot of creative iPhone cases, but this one, DIY-ed by the creative ladies at BleachBlack, wins the prize for most…dangerous looking. Not only is it fashion-forward, it looks like it could be quite effective as a weapon. Anyone who dares to mess with you risks getting a face full of iPhone, and man, that wouldn’t be pretty.

Here are three ways to put this skull and
crossbones cross-utensils dinner plate to good use:
1.Mount it on the wall to add a little goth style to your kitchen.
2. If you are poisoning someone, serve them a big pile of food on this plate, wait until they’ve eaten enough to reveal the image, and then say, “Yeah I just poisoned you.”
3. Give it as a gift to a friend who has questionable cooking skills.

I’ve already told you a little bit about my bad haircut experiences, most notably the time a 40-year-old hairdresser stole my kissing virginity, but today I’d like to go a bit more in detail about the horrific hairstyles I’ve sported over the years. What’s interesting is that I’ve never actually been that daring with my hair–never shaved my head in teenage rebellion or dyed it a crazy color with the exception of a hot pink streak a couple years ago–but even so, due to bad luck or poor decisions, I’ve sported some doozies. Read about my worst hair moments after the jump, and feel free to share some of your own hairstyle history in the comments! Keep reading »
This amazing decal of David Bowie as the Goblin King instantly transforms a lowly Macbook into a magical scene from the “The Labyrinth,” aka The Best Movie Ever. Ideally it would come with a separate decal depicting that legendary codpiece, but hey, this is a great start. [$23, Stickerman] Keep reading »
I understand that wardrobe malfunctions are a part of life. I accept the fact that buttons pop off and pants rip and blouses become suddenly see-through in certain lights. But that doesn’t make it any easier when it actually happens, for example, this weekend when I was walking around town and realized that my skirt was tucked into my underwear–and had been for an indeterminable amount of time. My mom has me beat, though. A few months ago she was on stage at a conference, being introduced to give a keynote address… Keep reading »
The other day my friend Niki said, “Hey do you know about Lands’ End Canvas? They have really cute things.” and then the next few minutes played out like a really contrived commercial. I tilted my head to one side and said, “Lands’ End? Cute? I hiiiiiiighly doubt that.” But Niki insisted, and then showed me some pieces on the website. After ensuring that she wasn’t a Lands’ End promoter in disguise, I was pretty shocked by what I saw. Here’s why… Keep reading »
