You’ve seen one meth head, you’ve seen ‘em all. Ditto for cokeheads, dope fiends, and alcoholics. That’s why A&E’s “Intervention” can get a little stale. Thankfully, there are occasionally people like Allison on the show to remind us, “Wait, you can get addicted to that?” Allison appeared a few seasons ago, but she’s kind of gone down in history as the show’s most memorable addict because of her intense addiction to huffing computer duster which she buys in bulk from Staples. Allison is possibly best known for saying in a singsong-y voice, high on the dust, “I’m walking on sunnnnnshiiiiiiine!” And so am I, every time I watch this episode. (I don’t mean to downplay or make light of the seriousness of Allison’s addiction — I am very glad to hear she is in recovery and doing well.)

As our friend Chloe Sevigny notes, you’re never fully dressed without azzezzoriez. Here, dear Chloe shares with us the keys to her accessory kingdom — lots of “porcelain mouth attire,” and “chreeesmas tree skirts.”
Lately, I’ve been fancying myself a bit of a photographer. Thank you, Instagram! But I think I’m ready to graduate a camera that isn’t my phone. And that uses actual film—remember that stuff? And so, I am lusting after this camera which takes gorgeous fisheye photos. And looks so much like something a character on “The Jetsons” would carry.
We were so thrilled to hear about the return of Arrested Development (a new season and a movie? Is this real life?) that we decided an AD-themed style inspiration board was in order. Our vote for Most Stylish Bluth would be the ever-ignored teenage movie executive Maeby, who rebels against her fashion plate mother by dressing in layers of clashing prints, stripes, and plaids–and happens to look great doing it. Click through to get Maeby’s signature look for yourself…

You knew it was only a matter of time before Barbie would step into the modern era and begin exploring the world of body modification. Though she’s not exactly a traditional Mattel release, the new tatted up Tokidoki Barbie sports a chest and neck full of tiny, colorful tats, sexy leopard print leggings and pink hair. She’s also got her very own Tokidoki pet — a cactus named Bastardino — if that’s your thing. You won’t find her at the local Toys ‘R Us, but you can grab one for a cool $50 off of the Barbie Collector site starting next week. [$50, Barbie Collector]
