I blew my wad on a rental car so I could drive to Pennsylvania with Lucca for the Thanksgiving holiday, which means I am banned — BANNED — from doing any shopping on this Cyber Monday, no matter how good the deals may be. But that doesn’t mean I cannot live vicariously through the rest of you. Here are 15 items I would purchase if I were shopping today, which I am not, I swear, I swear, I swear.

Yes, Olivia Munn, YES. This is how you style a striped, summer-y midi dress for cooler temps. I am loving how her stacked heel boots and bad ass green leather jacket give the look an edgy, tough vibe. Like, during summer with flip-flops, this dress is all, Oh hey I’m easy breezy, just chillin’ on the lanai with a glass of pinot grigio, but during winter, it’s all, Get to steppin’, I’ve got a hot toddy to drink, it’s cold out. Or something. Anyway, steal Olivia’s style, after the jump!

GAP Rallies Around Sikh Model After Ad Was Defaced By Racist Graffiti

Gap Ad Racist Graffiti

GAP’s #MakeLove ad campaign features a variety of diverse models, including Sikh actor and designer Waris Ahluwalia, who appears in a simple, beautiful portrait with illustrator Quentin Jones next to the words “Make Love.” The image appeared on billboards and in NYC subway stations, where unfortunately, the sight of Ahluwalia’s turban inspired some dim-witted vandals to deface the photo with racist graffiti. The word “love” was crossed out and replaced with “bombs,” and “Please stop driving taxis!” was scrawled in the white space. The defaced ad was spotted by a friend of Arsalan Iftikhar, a senior editor at The Islamic Monthly, who snapped the photo above. Iftikhar posted it to Twitter to show the world “how millions of brown people are viewed in America today.”

Style Stealer: Kim Kardashian Does Black From Head To Toe

Style Stealer: Kim Kardashian Does Black From Head To Toe

Something about New York City style that I’ve yet to fully embrace: people here wear a lot of black, especially in the colder months. Like, black from head to toe. Nothing chicer! I’ve heard it said. I actually love black and would wear it more often, if not for the fact that my dog Lucca is a big time shedder. And there’s nothing dog hair loves more than a black swath of fabric, lemme tell you. But for those of you not being held hostage by the fur, fur, fur everywhere, Kim Kardashian’s oh-so-NYC ensemble is the perfect example of how to rock black-on-black-on-black. And oh my god, I am loving her full-length coat. So glam. Get the details on how to steal her style after the jump! Keep reading »

Must Haves: 10 Grandma-Approved Holiday Dresses

Choosing a holiday dress your grandma will approve of is an art form. It can’t be too flashy or high fashion. It must be relatively modest, with feminine details like lace, floral prints, and peplums. Bonus points for retro styles that harken back to your granny’s youth (peter pan collars, full skirts, etc). Does this all seem overly complicated? It is! Which is why I’ve done the work for you and scouted out 10 holiday dresses that will have your famously snarky grandmother singing your praises (at least until she finds out you’re living with your boyfriend out of wedlock, you’re on your own with that one).

Bonus: it’s made to order in your exact waist size so it’s a great choice for any body type. [$30, Etsy]
