Kate Spade has it out for me.
That is the only possible explanation why they could have hired Garance Doré, a French style blogger and photographer, to design pieces for their fall line. Doré’s whimsical doodles are all over dresses, bags, and even an umbrella and iPhone case. The prices are as WTF as Kate Spade prices usually are, but that Joie De Vivre shirt is so damn cute I might just go searching the couches for loose change.
Above, my favorite picks from the Garance Doré for Kate Spade line!

Ryan Lochte, medal-winning swimmer, pool pisser, and chaste ladies’ man, continued to celebrate his 28th birthday in London this week, even leaving da clurb with a pretty blonde.

Click on to see more photos, including Lochte’s rad David Bowie shirt which I am totally going to steal from his closet when we sleep together.
I must admit, I haven’t always entirely understood rhythmic gymnastics. Oh sure, it requires skill, but I’ve always wondered if rhythmic gymnasts were people who couldn’t hack it in regular gymnastics once the various apparatuses were introduced. Well, upon watching the rhythmic gymnasts perform at the London Olympics these last two days, I am prepared to admit I may have been wrong. These ladies work their ribbons, balls, and hoops like nobody’s business, all while contorting their bodies into crazy positions. Click through to see some of these goddesses in action.
Hannah Hooper of the band Grouplove has outed Christina Aguilera as a singer with the stinkiest reputation. “I have friends that lived in Pittsburgh and they grew up around Christina Aguilera and they swear to God that she smells like hot dogs,” she said. Hot dogs? That’s harsh. I guess Xtina needs to lay off the pork.
Hey, just because they’re famous, doesn’t mean their armpits don’t get funky just like the rest of us. Click through to see some more celebs who have been accused of being stink bombs. [Bossip]
Individual makeup routines, and reasons for wearing makeup, vary. I wear makeup because, well, I don’t like the way my face looks without it.Gwen Stefani wears makeup so that her husband likes her more. Some women are even devoted enough to wear makeup at the gym. But regardless of why or when you choose to wear the stuff, there’s nothing worse than spending half of your day putting it on and the other half concerned about what it’s doing on your face. Bright lipstick, shimmery shadow, and sweeping black liner may look fabulous, but they can take ages to apply properly, and then you have to worry about what it all looks while you’re sitting hunched over at your desk or running for the train — things can get messy!
Most of us could use a little bit of a low-maintenance makeup overhaul, a welcome departure from the primer-foundation-concealer-powder-eyeshadow-eyeliner-mascara tedium, and there’s no better time than summer to minimize your routine. These products serve double (or triple, or quadruple) duty to cut a chunk of time and energy out of the process so that you can expend it somewhere else.
