Leather is having such a major moment right now that designers and retailers are going beyond the classic leather coats and jackets. We also are loving leather skirts, tops, dresses, pants, and vests. Take a look at some of our favorite leather pieces that will make a statement in your wardrobe.

Artist Susan Stockwell makes intricate, gorgeous dresses out of paper goods, like maps and sheets of currency. The dresses mimic colonial styles, and reflect her interests in ecology, geo-politics, mapping, trade and global commerce. It’s this confluence of ideas that give her work an extra charge. Check out some of her paper dresses in this gallery.
I stumbled upon the gem of a shopping site, ROMWE, when I was reading one of my favorite style blogs, StylePantry. Owner and editor Folake Huntoon wore an amazing leopard-print blouse in one of her “My Style” posts, and I had to have it. Fortunately for me, Folake revealed that the shirt was available on ROMWE, and I went searching on the site for it. Unfortunately for me, it wasn’t for sale anymore. I did, however, find a few similar leopard-print blouses and many more lust-worthy items. ROMWE does street fashion quite well and at affordable prices. The selection is huge! And the site even lets shoppers know how many units of a garment are still available, and what the new items will be. Check out some of my favorite pieces from ROMWE, and you’ll become a fan too!
I wasn’t aware of Camilla Belle’s total bombshell status until recently. I was scrolling through Glamour’s beauty blog (love!) when I came across this post and died inside. Unfortunately, she’s not famous for much more than dating a Jonas brother, but I checked out her iMDB page and it looks like she has a few big movies coming up — a starring role as Eve in the highly anticipated adaptation of Paradise Lost and Mary in Mary Mother of Christ alongside Al Pacino. Fingers crossed, we’ll be seeing a lot more of Camilla in the near future. For now, I’ve put together a roundup of her best looks for your appreciation!
I am fully willing to admit that LA is a totally different monkey than New York. The fashions, the seasons — everything is completely different. Which is why, after looking at the collection of looks at Thursday night’s GQ Man of the Year Awards, I kind of just give up. I don’t even know what month these ladies are dressing for. Certainly it’s not for almost-Thanksgiving time. In any case, some of these celebrities shine, while others completely miss the mark.
I still can’t get my mind off the brutal winter to come. We’ve had a few bone-chilling days already, and it’s only mid-November. Needless to say, it’s hard to stay warm and sexy in the wintertime. Bulking up is a must so as not to freeze, but who wants to leave the house looking like a swaddled snowman just because it’s cold outside? Not me. Here’s a roundup of some sweaters that will keep you warm but looking cool under all your layers.
It’s Friday and Ami and I are still bringin’ it in the style department. Julie is home sick and Jessica is sick of what she’s wearing. So, because three’s company, we’ve swapped out those two for one ANNIKA! Check out what the three of us are wearing — and have a fabulous weekend!
It’s a general belief among conservationists that man should meddle with nature as little as possible. But what happens when there’s a wild animal in peril, and humans have the ability to help out? Earlier this month, guests at the Kapani Lodge Lagoon in Zambia, noticed a baby elephant and her mother struggling in the mud near the facility (think Artax drowning in the Swamp of Sadness in “The Neverending Story”). Rather than let the animals slowly suffocate in the mud, they alerted the South Luangwa Conservation Society. Conservation Society members, along with representatives from the local wildlife authorities, came together to develop a rescue plan, and both elephants were pulled to safety. Check out the dramatic photos of the rescue, and the relieved baby.
Breaking news in the world of appendage anomalies (my favorite). Doctors in China saved a man’s severed middle finger by attaching it to his stomach. Twenty-year-old furniture maker, Wang Yongjun lost the tip of his finger when working with an electric saw. Eeek! His doctor had to make a snap decision to save the finger with this unusual technique — making a faux umbilical cord-type thingy to restore blood flow to the tip of the digit and help regenerate a new finger. In a month from now, the wounded finger will be birthed from his stomach, good as new. Whaaa! That is insane. I am nicknaming it Wang Finger Stomach. Yes, his unique appendage was man made, but most humans with extra body parts come by them naturally. Click away for the world’s craziest extra human appendages. Prepare to be wowed. This is not your average triple nipple stuff. [Orange UK]
I’ve never worn a nightgown in my life. The word alone makes me cringe, and the suggestion that I invest in one even more so. I’ve always been under the impression that nightgowns are firmly in the “not sexy”camp. My mother wears nightgowns! What’s sexy about that? (Sorry, Mom.) But a T-shirt and boxers are not that sexy, either, and it might be nice to have something cute to wear to bed when my boyfriend sleeps over. I’m looking to trade in my old decaying sweatpants (“lounge pants,” they prefer to be called) for something a little more romantic that will still keep me sleepin’ comfy.
