8 T-Strap Heels To Wear While Dancing Like A Lady

t strap heels m jpg
T-strap shoes remind us of old ladies — in the best way possible. Popular in the 1920s and ’30s, these polished-looking shoes were probably perfect for dancing the Charleston back then since feet get safely buckled in. These days, we see them most often on “Dancing with the Stars,” where the women wear them to perform fancy footwork. Strap on one of these eight pairs and make your special someone take you for a spin around the dance floor sans bumping and grinding.

Buy An Ultra Chic Laptop For A Good Cause

The Dell Design Studio has just issued Product Red, a new line of laptop covers created by cool artists where part of the proceeds go to the Global Fund to help combat and eliminate AIDS in Africa. Photographer Ben Grieme created a series of beautiful ombre color gradations (like the one above), Klaus Haapaniemi designed whimsical wallpaper-like patterns based on the four seasons, and Takashi Kusui was inspired to create gorgeous abstract prints to “demonstrate the innate energy of the continent of Africa and Mother Earth.” Check out the entire collection here. If you’re in the market for a new computer and/or an art buyer, it’s a worthwhile add-on. [Full disclosure: Ben Grieme is a dear friend of mine and he's rad. And yes, he paid me to write that last bit. Hollah!] Keep reading »

Crave: Madonna “Celebration” T-Shirt (Win One!)

Madonna has been a part of our life basically since we were born. We didn’t listen to her as babies, of course, but back in the ‘80s when we came into the world, the original pop star had already begun to make the music we’ve been enjoying since we got our first Walkman. Madonna’s greatest hits album, Celebration, hit stores this week, and it’s got all the good stuff on there – from “Papa Don’t Preach” to “4 Minutes” featuring Justin Timberlake and Timbaland. Put on one of these shirts that hearken back to Madge’s earlier days, throw on a few black jelly bracelets and maybe a rosary necklace, then gyrate around to your favorite tune. [Celebrate/Madonna, iTunes]

We’re giving away five Madonna Celebration T-Shirts, but you have to work if you want the Material Girl in your closet. The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, Oct. 2 through Thursday, Oct. 8 — will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Who Wants To Smell Like Kim Kardashian?

Behold the scent of Kim Kardashian. With her booming reality TV career, it was only a matter of seconds before Kim decided to launch her first fragrance. But she says the perfume creation has been in progress since she was little and she and Kourtney would mix flower petals together in the blender. Yet this scent is way more refined, complete with hints of jasmine, gardenia, and sandalwood. This February Sephora will begin to stock Kim’s perfume, which will cost $16-65. Keep reading »

What Jon Gosselin Should Do Now That He’s Booted From TLC

Poor Jon Gosselin has done a lot of soul-searching this week. After finding out that TLC would no longer be needing his services since “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ is becoming “Kate Plus 8,” Jon has taken stock of his life and made a few serious realizations. First, he decided that he didn’t really want to divorce Kate, and had his lawyer file paperwork to try to stall the divorce for 90 days. This was not a lame attempt to get ink in this week’s tabloids, but a serious change of heart. Nice touch, being photographed with his girlfriend the next day. Keep reading »

Bodysuits? Anybody? Bueller?

When I came across this Sportmax bodysuit, it brought back memories of my Grandma Betty: watching her in the bathroom as she’d primp, taking drags off her Benson & Hedges cigarette in between showering her bouffant in V05 hairspray and coating her lips in shimmery orange. Of course, she’d do this all in a bodysuit, usually an unsexy nude undergarment, as well as nude stockings.

Of course, I’m sure many of you have some full-body variety. Although it’s probably more for “special occasions” and not so much for everyday wear. Here’s what you might call a “fashion bodysuit” as it’s both an undergarment and a top. Would you (or do you) wear something like this? Or are panty-tops for Grams only?

What’s Your Pedicure M.O.?

Recently, Heidi Montag was spotted reading (yes, reading!) The Da Vinci Code (yes, an actual book, albeit a cheesy one) during her pedicure. It got me thinking: What is your usual pedi M.O.? Do you read the salon mags (that’s my go-to reading material—and I’ve been known to bring in an ice cream cone for a seriously awesome Friday night … yes, I realize that’s potentially lame)? Bring your own book a la Heidi? Do you only read your own magazines from home? Are you typing away on the Crackberry? Or, do you actually stop, and take the time to close your eyes, sit and relax? I’m intrigued! Do tell. Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Lindsay Lohan Is Back On The Pole

Those who missed the seriously not entertaining (disappointingly so!) “I Know Who Killed Me” will now get a second chance to see LiLo work a stripper pole thanks to new ads for her 6126 leggings line, which is described as “a lifestyle brand of feminine power and grace.” Yup, class act all the way baby!

Chicago Loses The Olympics

Not even President and Michelle Obama, nor Oprah herself, could seal the Olympic deal for Chicago. Chitown’s biggest powerhouses flew to Copenhagen this week to lobby for Chicago to host the 2016 Summer Games, but the second city lost the bid today in the first round of voting by the International Olympic Committee. Tokyo lost in the next round, and in the final round the IOC selected Rio de Janeiro over Madrid to host the games. This will be the first time a South American city will host the Olympics. Brazil was a favorite to win the games — mostly because every other country has hosted before — but there was an audible gasp in the voting room when it was announced that Chicago lost in the first round. Still, I know many Chicagoans will be relieved by the results — there was a big fear of increased taxes if their city won the bid — and I for one can’t wait to watch all those hot Brazilian boys in the stands when the Olympics take over their country.

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Rachel Zoe

Rachel Zoe‘s large-sunglassed visage has become a ubiquitous image. Her tent dresses are recognizable from yards away. And that mane of wavy blond hair has been copied by Midwesterners and starlets alike. Why not add to all the Zoe worship on Halloween by being her? But you’ve kind of got to take it to the hilt. Here’s how … Keep reading »
