Despite the “Is Disney Racist?” controversy surrounding “The Princess and the Frog,” my mixed feelings over the entire frilly pink princess marketing regime and the fact that I’m a grown woman, I’m unabashedly excited for the first hand-animated Disney cartoon in what feels like forever. Almost against my will, I’m overwhelmed with the… READ MORE »

Bluefly is known for selling designer clothes for a lot less, but sometimes the original price is so high that when it’s marked down by the online retailer we still can’t afford it. This doesn’t mean a recessionista can’t find anything at Bluefly. There are many designer articles of clothing, shoes, and accessories sold for… READ MORE »

Beyonce turned a few heads when she released her album last year under her alter ego, Sasha Fierce. But Jennifer Lopez is turning even more heads now because people are asking themselves: “WTF, didn’t Bey do this last year?” J.Lo has released her new single, “Fresh Out the Oven,” under the alias “Lola,” which is… READ MORE »

Two particular fall trends have been on our minds lately—menswear and colorful socks. Combining the two brilliantly is this pair of socks by Hansel From Basel, an L.A.-based indie hosiery company whose wares never fail to charm.

This weekend, I will rip my closet apart with a seriousness usually reserved for much more, well, serious matters. Fall is here and I’ve still got sundresses and gingham skirts taking up precious space that is no longer rightfully theirs. This is not a time for simply shoving the unworn to the back of the… READ MORE »

After seeing “The September Issue,” Grace Coddington is kind of my new obsession. From her bright red curls to her adorable cats to her indescribable talent and determination as an editor of Vogue, she’s a true genius. So it really was only a matter of time before she was immortalized in some form. Cult tee… READ MORE »

Kate Gosselin apparently thinks the whole world is her spawn. Well, not really, but she pretended she does on Jay Leno’s “JMZ” last night. The infamous mommy scolded three photogs who were taking pictures of her while she was loading groceries into her car. She made them… READ MORE »

I’m always on the lookout for ways I can annoy people a little less. Thankfully, the Marist Institute for Public Opinion (MIPO) has released a survey declaring the most annoying phrases in the English language—”you know” is second only to the word “whatever.” Eek, I say both!

It’s no exaggeration when I say that a ton of magazines closed this week. Conde Nast’s Gourmet (sob) and Cookie have heard the death knell. That’s why I was surprised to see that a new one, Get Married, is launching. Seriously, another bridal magazine? Why is a company introducing a new bridal publication after it’s… READ MORE »
