Queen Michelle at Kingdom of Style found this out-there rib cage necklace by way of Bitching & Junkfood. If exposed ribs and a bit of spine are your style, this is the jewelry for you. Made of perspex, the piece was created by London-based Spanish designer Patricia Nicolas. Anatomical correctness doesn’t come cheap, though. It’ll set you back £330.00, or around $525.

Because if it is, I want to marry Winston. Pipeline points us to the adorableness that is a pug named Winston modeling eyeglasses for ModCloth. On the left? That’s “Winston Gates.” On the right? That’s “Diane Von Winstonburg.” I want to climb through the screen and squeeze those furry cheeks! If you’re a pug lover like me, check out the saddest dog in the world, too. Also: What’s with the cutest pets on the interwebs being named Winston? [Pipeline] Keep reading »
Lindsay Lohan seems to consider herself somewhat of a social media expert and has now found a new use for Twitter. She’s been sending out Fashion Week invitations to the Ungaro show in under 140 characters.
To catch you up a bit on the Lindsay craziness, here’s a recap: despite the woes and complaints of the fashion industry, Emanuel Ungaro went ahead and hired Lindsay Lohan as an artistic advisor for the brand. She showed her diva attitude during Fashion Week in New York, moving around seating cards, and even made her new bosses angry when she missed a press call with the Wall Street Journal and decided to not pose for pictures at Fashion’s Night Out. We hate to say we told you so Ungaro, but well, we told you so. Keep reading »
Any fashionista worth her wardrobe knows that she can buy trendy stuff from Forever 21, but who really has the patience to wade through all the crap and mess that plagues the actual store? We don’t, that’s for sure. So we’ll just surf the website to find all the trendy and classic (bet you didn’t think Forever 21 had “classic” in them) items to add to our autumn wardrobe. I’m really loving the Crochet Trim Sweater Cardigan because I can’t afford real Chanel, but don’t want to wear a complete knockoff. Check out 17 garments and accessories we’re loving for their design and price, after the jump.

What’s worse: the hat thing or the head thing? This model at Lie Sang Bong’s runway show doesn’t appear to care for either. [10/1/09, Paris] Keep reading »
Do you think that when Rihanna is middle-aged, she’ll want to turn back time and not wear this dress? [Paris, 9/30/09] Keep reading »
Even though Blair Waldorf is weaning herself off headbands now that “Gossip Girl” has gone to college, we’re still digging cute crap we can wear on our heads, and apparently Karl Lagerfeld is, too.
Lagerfeld photographed a story for the October issue of Italian Elle, that transformed a male model into a Ken-like doll (he has a bulge but no reproductive organs) and added interesting accessories atop model Ikeliene Strange’s head. You thought Lady Gaga‘s hair bow was wild? That was nothing compared to a colander, a heel, and a telephone. [Design Scene]

Sometimes you have to wonder where on earth designers come up with their product names. For example, this Steve Madden model is called the “Cuddless,” which apparently merits this description: “Dreamy heels that call for more then a one night stand! Cuddle the night away in these all suede shoes.” (Hmm …maybe “Cuddless” was a spelling error?) But now that we think about it, we do kind of want to snatch up these shoes and hold them close to our hearts. We love the neutral gray color that lets the simplified ruffle detail stand out to give a basic bootie a fashion upgrade. Or, maybe according to Steve Madden, we should be calling these bootays. [$149.95, Steve Madden]

Despite the fact that I’ve totally succumbed to the internet in numerous ways, one former habit will just not die: My apartment is cluttered with magazines. Every month, my mailbox floods with glossies and flipping through the pages feels like fashion heaven. Sure, there’s The Fashion Spot where users painstakingly upload each and every page, but there’s just something about being able to flip through the editorials and see the beauty in person.
Could that be the one way internet magazines just can’t compete? Keep reading »
Kate Moss was spotted leaving the John Frieda salon in London today, but it’s not her hair that caused us to look twice. (Um, definitely not the ‘do; perhaps she just got a conditioning treatment?) Maybe only a supermodel can get away with pairing black denim hot pants with tights, a leo underneath a blazer, and a rockin’ python bag all at the same time, but knee-high, slouchy brown boots are accessories that look good on everyone. We were trying to think of which high-end designer made these when we remembered our recent over-the-knee boot gallery and realized that, save for a slight color discrepancy, Kate’s boots were kind of spot-on knocked off at, wait for it … Victoria’s Secret. With the huge demand for mega-high leather boots growing by the increasingly cooler-out day, we’d advise you to click over there and snap up the Devon boot ASAP. Because the majority of other options out there cost as much as, well, as much as Kate Moss’s actual boots probably did. Keep reading »
