7 Celebrity Dogs Gone Wild

Francesca the French bulldog looks like an adorable canine princess, and, for the most part … she is. That is unless you interrupt her beauty sleep. Martha Stewart’s precious pooch went feral on her face yesterday, which resulted in a trip to the hospital for stitches on her lip. So why did Franny flip out? Martha leaned down to whisper bye-bye to her doggy as she slept. Franny must have been having a nightmare or something because she awoke suddenly and head butted Martha in the mouth. The doggy equivalent of “Don’t wake me up!” Luckily, Martha is willing to forgive Franny for the attack, but hopefully she’s learned her lesson; let sleeping dogs lie. [Dlisted]

I Want Ben Minkoff

Meet the newest object of my affection: the Gregger Leather Tote. Gregger (yes we’re on a first name basis already) is part of the Ben Minkoff collection, Rebecca Minkoff’s latest line of men’s bags. This tote has a modern military vibe and a removable laptop sleeve. The rest of the collection include leather messengers, iPad cases, computer bags, and iPad sling bags, which are a sort of murse that hold an iPad. Ben Minkoff is sold at Bloomingdale’s and Ben Minkoff] Keep reading »

Deena Nicole Coins New Term: “Female Backpack”

Every now and then, in-between the fights, tanning sessions, and hot tub hookups, “Jersey Shore” gives us a something valuable. Like last week, when Vinnie showed us that it is possible for a guy to turn down sex if he knows he’s not on the page with the girl who’s offering it. This week, a nugget of wisdom came from newcomer Deena Nicole Cortese. While the girls discussed whether Sammi had gone to the gym with Ronnie, Deena said, “She’s probably sitting there watching Ronnie lift … She’s Ronnie’s backpack. She’s a female backpack.”

In a succinct, two-word phrase, Deena totally nailed what feels so off about Sammi and Ronnie’s relationship. Keep reading »

Introducing The New Ellen Tracy

Forget what you thought you knew about Ellen Tracy because the brand, which is sold exclusively at Macy’s, is now going after a younger, chicer audience, too. I had the opportunity to tour the Ellen Tracy boutique at Macy’s Herald Square yesterday, and quickly learned that the brand is able to speak to older women, say age 50 and up, as well as the consumer between the ages of 28 and 49. The brand turns trends, like anoraks or embellished Tees, into classics by offering them in colors and shapes that mix easily with other Ellen Tracy garments and items already in your closet. Ellen Tracy is a separates-driven brand that offers “no-thinking dressing” — you slip the pieces on and you’re done without any readjusting.

Ellen Tracy’s fit is for a 50-year-old woman, not a 14-year-old stick thin model. And the brand even designs its pants, which Oprah lives in, for women with curves. The Betty Pant is designed for the woman who carries her weight in the front or maybe just had a baby. The typical curvy woman with an hourglass figure often goes for the Linda Pant. Many Ellen Tracy pants are designed without a fly or side pockets so there’s no excess fabric. Sleeves are also given a longer length on some shirts and blouses because arms are an area that makes some women uncomfortable. In addition to offering pants and separates, Ellen Tracy is known for its suiting — the boyfriend blazer is a huge seller. The suit pieces are classic, but have a small quirky element, like a satin tuxedo stripe.

While some Ellen Tracy fashions are available online at Macys.com, I advise you to see the whole collection in person at the store. You can have fun styling the pieces to fit your lifestyle and get help from an associate who is hired and trained by Ellen Tracy, not Macy’s. Keep clicking for some of my favorite items from my tour.
