I’m a wedge girl, which sounds vaguely dirty when you write it out but it just means I prefer to wear wedge heels. The other day I decided it was time to change things up, to really break out of my shell, so I set aside my wedges and threw on a pair of 3.5 inch patent leather pumps instead. I spent the day teetering around like a drunk person and by the time I got home my feet were in so much pain that I was fairly sure I was going to need to have them amputated. I know for many women 3.5 inchers are a no-big-deal, daily footwear option, so tell me: what’s your high heel height limit? What size/style of heel is your favorite?

I discovered Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Liquid Lipstick by accident. I was at Walgreens (because I’m always at Walgreens) looking for a long-wearing pink lipstick. I picked one that had some promising adjectives in the title (“infallible” was involved, or maybe it was “impenetrable”?) and brought it up to the counter. The woman rang it up, then examined the label and frowned. “Are you looking for a lipstick that lasts?” she asked.
“Yes,” I told her. “All my pink lipsticks fade within an hour. I need something heavy duty.”

Every year, fashion designers and editors try to make velvet happen, which is fine. A velvet dress really does look smashing at a holiday party, after all. And this season everyone is trying to turn the men’s slipper into the new ballet flat, which is a little weird, but I’m slowly warming up to the idea. The natural culmination of these two trends is the velvet men’s slipper flat for women, shown here in a royal purple hue. The combo is getting a little too Hugh Hefner-y for my tastes, but what about you? Would you wear ‘em?
What’s not to love about the peace sign? It’s visually pleasing, powerfully symbolic, and a great throwback to the 1960s.

You can get your hands on any of these peaceful pieces for 20 bucks or less.
I was flipping through O Magazine last night (gotta learn how to live my best life, you know?) and came across a sidebar article about a new line of affordable shoes. Here’s what it said:
“If you adore–but can’t afford–Brian Atwood’s luxe shoes, check out his new “B” line: same sensuous look, much lower price. Still a splurge, but for true fans, it’s a deal.”
That all sounded very nice, but then I looked at the price: $500. Wait, what?
