When I heard that Diablo Cody had signed on to write the big-screen version of my beloved Sweet Valley High series, I died a little inside. In a good way. You see, I’m such a hardcore SVH fan that I collect the series and read them on the regular. I am still not over the butchering that occurred when SVH became a TV show, starring a bunch of losers who had no business tainting Francine Pascal’s vision. However, Diablo Cody I trust. Mostly. I’m thrilled to learn that the film will be taking place in the ’80s, which means it will, hopefully, be inspired aesthetically by the original book covers, recognizable by their soft-focus-colored pencil drawings. However, I’m concerned that Diablo might need help casting the film. I’ll never forgive her if Lila Fowler is played by, shudder, Megan Fox, or Bruce Patman’s brawny bad boy is ruined by faux badass Shia LeBeouf. Diablo, I hope you are reading.

I fell in love with oxford shoes in London, where you can’t throw a Cornish pasty down the street without hitting a pair (not that anyone was throwing Cornish pasties, but you get the idea). I love the vintage, masculine vibe they bring to every outfit, from dresses and tights to wool trousers and cardigans. Here are some awesome oxford options to work into your winter wardrobe, and the best part? They’re all 50 bucks or less…
It seems like the American Music Awards are kind of like the off-brand Grammys. Sure, some of the big stars are there, but, like, Jay-Z and Beyonce aren’t exactly banging down the door to make an appearance. And also, what’s up with Sprint throwing its name up all over everything? Kind of tacky, no? Just about as tacky as some of the outfits worn by the potpourri of rock, hip hop and country stars in attendance at last night’s program. Click through to see what we mean.
The other day I told you about Becky, the Dr. Laura guest who can only get off by humping the corner of her laundry basket, which she’s had since college. She admitted to preferring the basket her husband Steve’s really “large” penis. There’s no denying that clean laundry is sexy as hell, but it’s clear that her feelings for the laundry basket run deeper than that. Becky’s is not the only case of a person being turned on by — or even having romantic feelings for — an inanimate object. Click through to read about more people with objectum sexuality, otherwise known as a romantic desire for inanimate objects such as laundry baskets. [Oprah]
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!
