Shopping Guide: Long & Lovely Necklaces
Long necklaces are a magical part of the jewelry kingdom. They’re great for layering with other necklaces, look striking on their own, and — fun fact! — the long vertical line they create can actually have a slimming effect. Add one to a little black dress, for example, and oh man will you look like a tall drink of water. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites that measure at least 24″ long and cost less than $50. Click through to check them out, and remember, contrary to what some stores would have you believe, a necklace is not a shirt.

Elizabeth Banks And Chelsea Handler Get Mistaken For Each Other Often

On Monday, Chelsea Handler tweeted, “Elizabeth Banks is on tonight’s show, so all my dreams have come true; I can now say I’ve interviewed myself.” Sure they do look a bit alike in that both-have-shoulder-length-blonde-hair-and-angular-faces way, but apparently people confuse them all the time? In last night’s interview, Chelsea divulged that the comparison isn’t always flattering. Chelsea explained, “People always say they look alike, but Chelsea is obviously much later. Meanwhile, we’re the same age.” Elizabeth shared that it goes both ways for her too. “I was sitting in Toronto and a guy walked up to me and said, ‘My girlfriend loves you. She would die if I got your autograph.’ I was like, ‘Sweet. Cool.’ He said, ‘I just love your books, My Horizontal Life.’ I was like, ‘Oh, he thinks he’s meeting Chelsea Handler.’ I couldn’t ruin it for him. He asked, ‘What are you doing in town?’ So I said, ‘I’m on a book tour.’ Just being Chelsea, drinking my vodka.” [LA Times] Keep reading »

This Is What Happens When You Pose Like A Model In Public


Filmmaker Yolanda Dominguez decided to see what would happen if real women posed like fashion models. In public. And then she filmed the reactions of passersby. The result is both hilarious (at one point, a concerned McDonald’s employee comes to check on a woman who seems to have glued her clutch to her forehead) and intriguing. If you read a lot of fashion magazines, even the most contorted poses start to look familiar and even normal. It’s pretty jarring to see them taken out of context, and I think it says a lot about the way the fashion world views women. Check it out and let us know what you think! [YouTube] Keep reading »
