According to Jessica, I always end up working from home on days when she dresses up and/or “makes an effort” for “What Are We Wearing Today?” You know what else I miss on days I work from home, besides Jessica all dolled up? Celebrities. Apparently Aaron Carter was in our conference room today and I missed it. Grr. Anyway, let’s see what Ami, Julie, and Jess are wearing today…
While I’m counting down the days until this Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony, I’m also taking some time to hone my “Fashion Police”-esque critique down to a science. It would have been a lot easier on me if last night’s turnout for the National Board of Review Awards Gala hadn’t been so damn well-dressed — with, of course, a few key exceptions.
I’ve never met a pair of leather leggings I didn’t like, but they are, shall we say, an investment piece. A soft, flattering, fitted pair can set you back like you wouldn’t believe, but they look so goooood. The newest trend that I can get behind is these coated skinny jeans, as seen on the stars. Rihanna, Blake Lively, Miranda Kerr, and Kim Kardashian have all been spotted rocking the style, and they’re shockingly sexy on a bevy of body types. Unlike leather, waxed denim is vegan-friendly and won’t leave you $500 in the hole, terrified to put on a single pound. Here’s five pairs to choose from, ranging from a reasonable splurge to a ridiculous steal.
It’s a big week in the world of celebrity cruises. Royal Caribbean is now offering us plebeians the chance of a lifetime: to board the Allure of the Seven Seas with none other than THE Kate Gosselin. Yes, you can now purchase your tickets to join Kate for seven nights, as the cruise travels from Ft. Lauderdale to Jamaica to Cozumel and back. On board perks include a Kate Gosselin meet and greet, a commemorative gift, a photo session and a private BBQ with Kate as the guest of honor. Whomever conceptualized this cruise is a goddamn genius. A genius, I say! I wonder if the kids are coming or if Jon is watching them that week. I guess I’ll have to book my cabin to find out. Click through for some more fabulous celebrity cruises you can take this year. You know, just in case you already have plans in August. [Buzzfeed (image also via Buzzfeed)]
Model Agyness Deyn may have just gotten her big acting break. Sure, she had a cameo in “Clash of the Titans,” but soon we’re going to get to see more of her on the big screen. A lot more. She’s landed the role of Flo, a “strong-minded stripper” in a remake of the the cult classic “Pusher.” Here is the first pic of Deyn rocking a red nipple tassel and trashy lingerie. It may not be the couture she’s used to, but she’s working it. Deyn is not the first to get on the pole for a role. Click through to see some more actresses who’ve played strippers. [Telegraph UK]
It’s a noisy day at our offices. I have a hacking, disgusting cough. Workers are here fixing the fire alarm system. And we’re all wearing a little color. Click on to see what we’re wearing!
If you’re a photography enthusiast you might know that the daguerreotype was the first widely used photographic process, invented in 1839. If you’re a cute boy enthusiast you should probably know that the Tumblr blog “My Daguerreotype Boyfriend” documents some of the hottest dudes ever captured on copper plates. With substantial mutton chops and swagger, most of these guys would look right at home ordering a PBR in a modern-day hipster bar, but I’ve gotta say, skinny jeans and hoodies have got nothing on a nicely pressed Civil War uniform.

You can’t tell just by looking at me, but I live and breathe fashion. I follow all the right blogs, know all the right names, and stalk Style.com like a savant. I whittle away days on the internet amassing perfunctory “wishlists” of items I will never be able to afford, and I have forgone meals in favor of spending my money on thick issues of Vogue in languages I can’t read. I’m in deep.
Still, when you have a kind of go-to look, a uniform even, it grows into a habit that’s hard to break. I’m so comfortable in shades of black and grey, thrown together into a messy lazy-girl formula ruled by skinny jeans, oversized sweaters, and low boots, that I haven’t dared to wear anything else in, well,years. Am I just lackadaisical when it comes to dressing … or am I scared? Keep reading »
Patterned leggings are a simple way to seem dressed up without putting a whole heck of a lot more effort into your outfit. If you’re going to go with a crazy patterned bottom, keep the rest of your outfit plain and basic. Or else you’ll look like a clown. Which, you know, might be your thing.
Hey, what did you get for Christmas? I got pajamas, fancy towels, and a book on gender! I think that’s pretty great, but the 12 couples in this slideshow probably think their gift was better — they all got engaged over the holidays (i.e. the period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s). There are so many, I thought we should keep a running list cause clearly a trend is afoot. As a formerly engaged on New Year’s Eve person, I am now anti-holiday engagement. But that’s because my engagement ended and I am reminded of that every New Year’s. But I’m glad it worked out that way, so it’s a nice reminder that I’m not married to that guy, but also, I would rather not be reminded of him at all on a holiday, you know? Well, whatever, good luck to these celeb couples who all got engaged during the holiday season! I really don’t mean to be a downer.
