Here’s what we’re wearing on this Happy Monday!
Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
When I’m not busy picking bald patches into my scalp, I like to look at hair tutorials and screw around with my locks. On days when I wake up with weird cowlicks or greasy roots, I usually pull it back into a sloppy bun, but I’d like to up the ante by trying out one of these twists, heh, on the usual. Click on for 10 bun and tuck hair tutorials! Keep reading »
‘Tis the season for fugly Christmas sweaters. Some celebs enjoy flaunting their holiday cheer in a hideous, knitted mess. The perfect ironic, Christmas look is all in the attitude of the wearer. It’s imperative that Christmas sweaters be worn irreverently or not at all. I’m not sure that Justin Bieber pulled off this festive cardigan (which allegedly cost a cool $1700) on his recent “Today Show” appearance. Ignoring the price tag momentarily, the Biebs looks no older than 12. Way too young to be a daddy. Maybe that was the intended look he was going for in the midst of his paternity scandal.

It’s been a rough year for Demi Lovato. Rehab, drugs, cutting … and now a nip slip in front of a crowd in Dallas, Texas, recently. The 19-year-old’s nip slip happened when she leaned over in a tight fitting dress. Come on, Demi Lovato! Everyone knows that’s a bad idea. [Hollywood Life]
Sometimes nipples have a mind of their own and we just have to let them be free. Click through to see some more celebrity nip slips. Totally NSFW, for the record.
Aw, the office Secret Santa, that old gem. The special gift giving moment when you have to awkwardly select a present for a coworker you’ve barely talked to since the Halloween potluck two months ago. Well, never fear, we’ve found 10 gifts — all under $20 — that should help ease your office Holiday party anxiety, though we can’t help you if you happen to get a little too drunk and pass out during the boss’s year-end speech.
We’re really feeling printed shoes at the moment: They’re an easy way to make an outfit feel a little extra special. And they’re also a simple, foolproof way to take an outfit from totally blah to something awesome. If you’ve got a bunch of neutrals in your closet, maybe invest in a pair of printed shoes to jazz up your basics? Just a thought. Behold our selection of possible fun patterns, shapes and sizes.
So, let me get this straight: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is about a woman attempting to outrun a sadistic rapist and solve a murder, so naturally you’d want to design a line of clothing around her look. Well, not really. It seems that H&M’s “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” collection is mostly a mish-mosh of faded and dingy colors, intentionally worn fabrications and rather impossible to wear stretch faux leathers. So yeah, I won’t be bothering with any of it. But what about you? Feeling the Lisbeth Salander look?
Attention Twihards! Be honest … could you imagine anyone other than Kristen Stewart playing Bella Swan in the “Twilight” series? Well, there was once a time when producers weren’t sure who they would cast, and actress Michelle Trachtenberg claims the role could have been hers. Catherine Hardwicke, who directed the first “Twilight” film, was apparently interested in possibly casting Michelle, who she knew fromalmost (so many close calls with this one!) hiring her for the movie “Thirteen.” Apparently Hardwicke thought Trachtenberg would be a good fit for the quiet, vaguely sullen future vampire lover.

One of the worst things I’ve ever had someone say to me is, “You look … festive.” Around the holidays, it can be hard to determine where to draw the line between kitschy holiday accessories and what’s, well, more suited as a wreath than a bracelet. I’ve rounded up some jewelry for the holiday season that manages to be chic while still injecting a bit of holiday spirit.
Confession: I’m a little bit obsessed with blogs written by American girls living in Paris. Their style, their food, their apartments, their men … ooh la la! My favorite is Making Magique, but I also like Badaude, the group blog HipParis and Dead Fleurette (who lives in Oslo, but is a Francophile). Maybe I’m deeply jealous of my friend Leonora Epstein, who wrote The Frisky’s 365 Days In Paris series. Or maybe I’m just envious of a world where the lighting always looks just-so. Or maybe I just want to wear red lipstick and polka dots without apology.
Either way, I’m going through a serious Francophile phase myself and hoping my holidays are filled with macarons and Chanel perfume. Shopping for a wannabe Parisian this holiday season? Allons-y! Keep reading »
