The first day of school is 10 percent who your new teachers are, 90 percent your outfit. Ok, maybe 10 percent is who that new hottie is, but that can just factor right back into your outfit because you want him to notice you, obvs. And nail art is just another way to show off your awesome sauce! So, I’ve put together this slideshow of some of my fave looks from some super talented nail artists to inspire you to do up your digits for your big first day!
Here’s my back to school cool look — saddle shoes! My mom got me a fresh pair of these kicks every year for elementary school. Instead of being on my feet, this time around, I put them on Kiki T’s hands. Special thanks to the best hand model/astrologist in the world! I only wish we went to the same school back in the day….
Seeing so many celebs rocking blazers has made me go a little blazer-crazy. If you want to add one item to your wardrobe for fall, you really can’t go wrong with a blazer–it’s a perfect transition piece for the changing seasons, and there’s a chance it’s the most versatile piece of clothing ever. Seriously: wear it to work with a pencil skirt and heels, wear it on the weekend with jeans and boots, wear it on a date with a lace dress and wedges, and so on and so on.

If Fashion Week’s runways are any indication, you’ll be seeing a lot of fur on the streets this fall. Fur was everywhere — from Marc Jacobs, to Carven to Christopher Kane and more — and you’re bound to see lots more as the temperature goes down. Personally? I’m not huge fur fans (I mean, I’m vegan, after all). It’s horribly expensive and it involves killing animals. So if you like the look of fur, but don’t like the moral and wallet price, try faux fur. We’ve found nine pieces featuring faux fur that we think you’ll love as much as we do.
Circle skirts are great for both girls with big hips and those with more boxy figures. Adding extra volume on the bottom half of your body can create a more feminine shape for straight up-and-down girls, and can accentuate the junk in your trunk if you’re more curvy (raises hand). To get you circling the circle skirt wagon, we’ve found 10 great looks. Check ‘em out!
When it comes to watches, my priority is not being on time — in fact, I’ve worn my fair share of broken vintage versions just for the look of them. I can’t be alone, right? (Or am I?) Regardless, I covet the hell out of gorgeous, brutally priced timepieces (whether they’re functioning or not). Rolex? Bulgari? Sign me up. Unfortunately, I don’t have the kind of budget that allows for $30,000 watches. That diamond and sapphire-studded leopard-face Cartier? I can’t have it, even though I want it. Luckily, there’s a world of watches out there, and there are tons that look believably rich, without the rich price tag. Check out my 10 picks for sweet watches at prices that won’t make your heart stop ticking.
A lady’s private bedroom, sitting room or dressing room is often referred to as her boudoir. It’s an old-fashioned, Victorian practice which, in modern times, became a popular photography style. Any picture, candid or posed, where the subject is either partially clothed or in lingerie, is considered boudoir style photography. If you’ve flipped through the pages of any magazine, you’ve probably noticed that it is an incredibly popular style for photographing sexy celebs.
No surprise that earlier this week Kim Kardashian posed for yet another picture wearing stockings and lingerie. This time she added a fur coat and pearls to the mix. “Vintage shoot today,” she tweeted, along with the seductive boudoir photos. I’m sure PETA will love them.[Daily Mail UK]

Now that we’ve acknowledged that summer is on its way out, we can get excited about fall makeup! With new trends come new releases, and you know what that means: it’s high time to update your makeup wardrobe, so to speak. Here are my product picks that will have you craving the cool weather sooner than you think…
It’s Cameron Diaz’s birthday today, so in honor of the “Something About Mary” star, we’ve decided to take a look back at some of her best sartorial moments. Love her or hate her, you have to admire her for snagging consistently hot younger dudes and kind of just doing what she wants. Also, Cameron is a rare actress that does casual-wear as well as she does formal occasions. So on the occasion of her 40th birthday (girl looks damn good), we salute you.
Labor Day fast approaches. Which it means it’s time for me to be depressed that I didn’t go to the beach as many times as I promised myself I would. Blah. Summer never really unfurls in the idyllic way it does in my mind. But there is one place where summer is always perfect. Stock Photo Land! What the hell is this woman so happy about? That she has the world’s largest straw hat? Screw her! Let’s take our end-of-summer angst out on these stock photo models who, apparently, had a way better summer than the rest of us. Assholes.
The other day, Amelia and I got to talking about this awesome DIY lampshade. “It’s like papier maché for adults,” I said, which led us into a brief discussion about how to spell “papier-mâché,” which led us into a much longer discussion about all the childhood craft projects we missed. Dreamcatchers! Decoupage! Friendship bracelets! But what if we didn’t have to miss them? What if there were updated versions of these very projects that were fun to do and yielded beautiful results? Turns out there are — click through to check out seven grown-up variations of our favorite childhood crafts…
