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 »
Oh, celebrities: we hate them for never having a bad hair day, but we love them for the endless style inspiration they provide. From old Hollywood curls to beachy waves to that elusive flawless blowout, check out these seven celeb hairstyles and how to translate them from the red carpet to everyday life…
I pride myself on my vast knowledge of celebrities, particularly their love lives. Ever since my grandmother handed me a tattered issue of The National Enquirer as a young lass and affectionately called it “The Trash,” celebrity gossip has been my guilty pleasure. So, I’m always more than a little surprised when I find out two stars dated and no one bothered to tell me. This morning, I was perusing a great Tumblr called “Old Loves,” featuring photos of celeb couples who once dated, and found eight I had no idea about. Keep reading »
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a bunch of holiday-themed sex toys to get you in the spirit. Well, actually it would. But some people will use any excuse they can to customize sex products. Christmas is no exception. We couldn’t resist rounding up a bunch of the naughtiest stuff out there for you to put under your S.O.’s tree. Or maybe in your S.O.’s tree. Or on it in the case of this XMas Tuggie. Yes, it’s a Snuggie for his c**k! So he can keep his hands free and his nuts toasty while watching “A Christmas Story.” Brilliant! Keep on clicking to see more WTF sex toys for the holidays.
Believe it or not, the push to be hyper-thin hasn’t always been present. In the ’50s and ’60s, women were sold the idea that a curvy, bodacious bod was best, and companies like Wate-On advertised that they could turn a skinny girl into a voluptuous vixen through their weight-gaining products. Whether Wate-On worked, it’s refreshing to see a different kind of body type being coveted — one that doesn’t promote a protruding hip or clavicle. Check out these great vintage “anti-skinny” ads.

Hold on. Can we have a moment of silence for the previous 11 months of 2011 which have apparently come and gone without me really noticing? Where the hell did this year go? I still think I have Christmas 2010 presents to shop for. Oops. Anyway, click on to see what we’re wearing on this 1st day of December!
