I love silk: it’s the perfect lightweight layer under a cardigan or pullover, and a good washed silk shirt is perfect for channeling that louche-luxe vibe I’m always after. These 10 silk tops and tanks will be right at home in your wardrobe come spring — just be sure not to get iced coffee on ‘em, like I always seem to…
I know printed pants are not super popular ’round these parts, because a while back I did a post about styling printed denim, and the overwhelming response on Facebook and Twitter was “WHY DOES THIS EXIST?” So I’m going to go out on a limb and admit it: I really like these floral pants Drew Barrymore is wearing. I think the bright colors and fun print suit her perky personality, and I love how she paired them with red heels and a subtle black blouse. Now for the moment of truth: what do you guys think?
Um, is it spring yet? (Actually, it totally is. Finally!) I’m ready to shed my thick knit tights in favor of bare legs and flippy skirts, and I’m sure you are, too. A-line skirts are flirty and flattering on all body types, thanks to their fit-and-flare silhouette. Let’s get spring started with these 10 adorable A-lines, at a range of prices…
Jeans keep getting skinnier, am I right? But still, sometimes they’re just not skinny enough. American Eagle Outfitters has taken that a step further with their new Skinny Skinny Jeans — denim so skintight that it’s spray on. The Skinny Skinny Jeans have their own video (vaguely NSFW) and product page, which features a choice of two unisex signature colors — Indigo and Bright Light — but sadly, when you try and add the $49.95 “jeans” to your cart, the site alerts you that they’re sold out. I guess if this rather brilliant marketing campaign manages to draw you to the AE site, you’ll maybe stick around to purchase one of their other styles of denim which, sadly, are only as skinny as actual fabric will allow.

I fell instantly in love with this red lace dress Emma Roberts wore to a party in Beverly Hills. It’s fun, flattering, and since I’m going through a red period right now (not as menstrual as it sounds), I’m especially taken with the color. Emma’s dress is by Style Stalker and costs $189, which is practically free in celebrity money, but still about double what I usually spend on a dress. I dug up three other pretty red lace dresses for $70 or less, from size 3 to 2X. Shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »
Whether you’re headed to Red Lobster or the Bush compound in Kennebunkport, you should dress the part. And what better way to declare your love for crustaceans than wearing them? And no, I’m not talking about Philip Treacy lobster hat: I mean this cotton scarf featuring navy blue stripes and a lobster print! It looks so good you’ll have to stop yourself from dipping it in melted butter. [$21.99, ModCloth]

This is model and singer Nil Karaibrahimgil, on the runway during the Red Beard by Tanju Babacan show during Istanbul’s Fashion Week. You didn’t know Istanbul had a Fashion Week, did you, but oh, it does. And apparently ovo-themed fashions are very popular there. In any case, this kind of reminds me of those gummy fried eggs that are available at a lot of British supermarkets and candy stores. And it’s making me crave one real bad.
Karl Lagerfeld isn’t the most politically correct fellow around, nor is he necessarily the most reasonable, but he is delightful in the way that many kooky, mildly racist old European men just are. He has terrible things to say about almost everyone, but he says them so straight-forwardly and in such bastardized English that it’s next to impossible not to chuckle — he’s just kind of hilarious in the most inadvertent way. “I am not that pretentious; you have a distorted image of me,” Karl tells Harper’s Bazaar‘s executive editor, the fabulous Laura Brown, in this installment of “The Comedown,” her webseries for the mag. They chat about everything from Choupette (who, yes, Karl realizes is “the most beautiful and most famous cat in the world”) to what he would do if he was invisible for a day (robbery). You may want to skip this video if you’re firmly anti-Karl, because there’s a considerable chance you might actually start to find the man wildly endearing, warts and all. [Fashionista]
