There’s kind of a random op-ed in the Femail section of The Daily Mail today called “How Can Lily Allen Be Chanel’s Latest Fashion Muse?” that bemoans Karl Lagerfeld’s apparent fascination with the singer, whom the writer refers to as looking “worse for wear” in the past. It’s curious for several reasons: The paper is… READ MORE »

When it comes to fashion, some people are so obsessed, they’re like bad painters. They just. Keep. Adding. So, seriously, is it that imperative that your toe nail clippers be embellished with Swarovski crystals or your key chain be from Gucci?

Now for the little Miss Fancy Pants who wants to get noticed… READ MORE »

I barely knew that there was a civil war in Sierra Leone until it was declared over in 2002. I remember seeing an episode of “Oprah” about the horrors women were suffering there: rape, murder, AIDS, extreme poverty. I knew as horrific as it was, I needed to know more.

I’ve been pretty fascinated by the New York Times’ series “Women at Arms,” about lady folk in the military. Yesterday’s front page story might have been the most interesting so far. It looks at the lives of women who’ve returned from serving in Iraq and Afghanistan and are now dealing with the debilitating effects of… READ MORE »

Oak, a fashion-forward store in New York City, has been pulling out the ridiculous men’s fashions lately. First, we found this T-shirt thingy by Complex Geometries. And now, we’ve come across this $110-shredded shirt by CMRTYZ, which reminds me of the “True Blood” scenes where Maryann Forrester rips people’s backs apart. That being said, I… READ MORE »

Two-finger rings have been spotted on celebs like Rihanna and Lauren Conrad, and we’ve wanted one since the trend made a resurgence a year ago. Until now, though, we hadn’t found one that was perfect for us. The flowers make Chadwick & Rueling’s handmade two-finger rose ring look feminine, but the oxidized silver adds a… READ MORE »

Since hitting the big time with her “Dawson’s Creek” character Jen Lindley, Michelle Williams has gone on to make mostly independent films. Besides “Brokeback Mountain,” a lot of her movies haven’t landed in theaters — at least not in wide release — and I’ve Netflixed a few of them recently. Right now, I’m halfway… READ MORE »
