Jason Wu Designs Creepy-Chic Madame Alexander Dolls

Jason Wu, arguably the most adorable new-ish American designer in the business these days, has just upped his awesome factor by designing limited-edition dolls for Madame Alexander. We’ve dug around for some images and are officially entranced by the creepy coolness of the mini models in their realistic frocks and gorgeous shoes. (Glance away from the amazing blue ‘fro and covetable dress for a minute and you’ll notice the doll at left is wearing mini Louboutins.) More images after the jump. [Refinery29] Keep reading »

Would You Wear Heels In The Snow?

I’m a high heel lover, but even I have to admit defeat when it snows. My rubber-soled boots win every time because I like my limbs. Anyway, I’ve noticed quite a few women wearing their heels in the snow on my favorite street style site, Chictopia. So I wonder, do you wear heels in the snow? Keep reading »

And The Prize Goes To … The Best Gift You Bought Yourself

Last Friday, we asked you to tell us about an item you bought to treat yourself, and you seriously blew us away. We almost teared up a few times because your stories of personal purchases showed what’s important to you, and how much you value yourself. After much deliberation, we decided reader Maggie’s story was our favorite:

I recently landed a sweet job as a nanny. This is my first real job outside of college, and I’m like Mary Poppins. I live in their attic and have lots of stuff in my bag. I love the kids I nanny for, and the family has made me feel so welcome and loved in their home. I used part of my first paycheck on some artwork for my little attic apartment. I bought a block print of a vintage bicycle from an artist on Etsy, and I’m so pleased. It’s the first piece of real art I’ve been able to buy for myself since I became a real person outside of the college bubble, and it’s nice having some art that I love to put up in my new home and make the space my own.

Thanks for all of your thoughtful answers, and don’t forget to enter to win our daily Valentine’s Day giveaways Keep reading »

Hair Model Citizen: Dannii Minogue Is So Glamourous

How freakin’ cute does Kylie’s sister’s hair look on the cover of U.K. Glamour? It’s a little bit Marilyn with a whole lot of Jackie mixed in, all updated for 2010. How to get the look? It’s basically a really short, asymmetrical bob that’s been curled to flip at the ends and teased for volume. We think it’s a fresh way to stand out from all the extension-addled starlets out there.

A Month Of Outfits Worn By Alexa Chung

Many of us at The Frisky were completely bummed when Alexa Chung‘s MTV show, “It’s On With Alexa Chung,” got canceled, not because we watched it regularly (we’re at work at the time, as we suspect most of the audience was), but because it gave us the opportunity to see Alexa’s outfits on a daily basis. Thankfully, she’s on the February cover of British Vogue, and she’s doing a style diary on their website all month. The best part about her “Today I’m Wearing … ” posts is that you can tell the photos aren’t professionally shot since they’re sort of fuzzy, like cell phone snaps. Even so, we get the idea of what she’s got on and her descriptions are priceless. Yesterday, she paired “a bow in my hair by Kleenex” with a white Topshop dress, and today she stood at what she calls a “petrol station” and said her chic nerd ensemble was “boring …. Tomorrow will be better.” We’ll be checking back to see if she keeps her word. [Vogue.co.uk] Keep reading »

Your Dream “Jersey Shore” Vacation, On The Cheap!

It’s time for a vacation, right? I’ve got an idea for ya. Why don’t you rent the house the “Jersey Shore” kids stayed in for their wild summer in Seaside Heights? Currently, the house will run you $3,500 a night, but come May—when beach season rolls around again—that will go way up, to $6,500 a night, reportedly three times what the house rented for in the pre-reality show days. But think about it: You and your honey could get close in the hot tub, which presumably has been scrubbed down since the summer. You could make a big Italian meal like “The Situation,” cuddle like Ronnie and Sammi, or see if you can master the duck phone a little better than Snooki. Sure, it’ll be freezing out, but you don’t actually have to leave the house. Heck, it’s not like the crew went to the beach more than once all summer. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
