Worth The (Small) Splurge: Ann Taylor Flats

Half the reason I ordered Ann Taylor‘s “Perfect Flats” was a spiteful attempt to find a way in which they are not, in fact, “Perfect.” But I needed new black flats and didn’t want to spend $500 to replace my Lanvin regulars as they became increasingly less wearable, though I assumed the $98 Ann Taylor substitutes would be nothing but a short-lived band-aid on the problem. As it turns out, I was wrong. Not only do they look good — far better, in fact, than their picture — the leather is soft, the sole padded and the toe cleavage perfectly balanced. If this is what Ann Taylor’s new designer and sleeker approach is going to look like all the time, consider us interested. [$98, Ann Taylor] Keep reading »

Can Maxi Skirts Ever Work For Short Women?

As an individual who is faced with the dilemma of being vertically challenged — I’m super short, 5’1″ to be exact — certain fashion trends just don’t work for me. Pants are pretty much impossible and even if I liked the harem style, I can totally forget about ever looking good in them. In fact, for months I was convinced that I shouldn’t even try to make a maxi dress work because I would just end up looking like a child covered in piles of fabric. Eventually, desperation mixed with jealousy and a quick shopping trip lead to my first maxi dress purchase last summer. Now I’m in love and believe I have mastered the art of maxi dresses for shorties, though I’d hardly say that I’m willing to venture into the world of harem pants. Then, my world was rocked when I saw the Olsen twins strutting around town in maxi skirts! Keep reading »

Here’s One Way To Deal With Male Baldness

Meet Philip Levine, a London guy who said “eff that” to hair plugs when he started going bald, and instead decided to capitalize on his nude head by treating it as a canvas. Since 2006, he’s used the space as a place for artistic expression, bedazzling it with mirrored pieces or Swarovski crystals (once with 1,000 of them!). He also partners with makeup artist Kat Sinclair, who helps him create scalp paintings that are crazily detailed—in the past, he’s had a “Wizard of Oz” landscape, and a nature motif with life-like butterflies glued on to his head. Creepy or rad? Check out some more pics after the jump. [PhilSays.com] Keep reading »
