Yes, There Are A Lot Of Products In My Shower

Take a look at that picture. Clearly, I have a problem. I’m a products whore. I like bath products, okay? Of course I don’t use all of these every time I shower, but I like to have some variation, just in case one day I want to smell like a walking basket of ginger limes and another I want to smell like a tea shop. You know how it goes. Plus, everything in my shower has been personally vetted and tested–by me!–to ensure the utmost in quality. So without further ado, all the stuff in my shower, which I recommend you try… Keep reading »

How High Is Too High–For Your Heels?

We all have our limits when it comes to the height of our heels. I’m prone to wearing more extreme shoes, I suppose, because I’ve been short since forever. I stopped growing when I was 13–my mom blames it on me becoming vegetarian at that age–and in order to not seem too midget-y, I took to wearing heels early on. I’m only five feet tall without shoes on, so my feet have adapted to wearing unreasonably high heels over time–even though they often make my friends cringe. My highest pair of heels maxes out at around 5 inches and they’re perfectly comfortable, because I’ve learned that it’s often not the heel height that makes shoes suck, but the slope of the arch that creates the most pain. Too extreme an arch and your foot will constantly be sliding forward into the toe of your shoe. That’s why I love a shoe with a small platform on it–it helps soften the slope and make the shoe infinitely more wearable. But everybody’s different. I have friends who can’t bear to walk in anything but flats. Others that wouldn’t be caught dead without their stilettos on. So tell us: What’s your take on high heels? How high is too high and what’s just right for your feet? Keep reading »

7 Horrible Hairstyles I Have Had And Why

I’ve already told you a little bit about my bad haircut experiences, most notably the time a 40-year-old hairdresser stole my kissing virginity, but today I’d like to go a bit more in detail about the horrific hairstyles I’ve sported over the years. What’s interesting is that I’ve never actually been that daring with my hair–never shaved my head in teenage rebellion or dyed it a crazy color with the exception of a hot pink streak a couple years ago–but even so, due to bad luck or poor decisions, I’ve sported some doozies. Read about my worst hair moments after the jump, and feel free to share some of your own hairstyle history in the comments! Keep reading »

Quality Time With Mary-Kate And Ashley Olsen


Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen launched their new T-shirt line (like they ever wear Ts) Stylemint a few months ago, and this month, have brought celebrity stylist Sara Moonves in on the act to share her style advice with Stylemint fans. The creepiest part of the video? When Mary-Kate admits that she loves Sara because she “really gets our personality.” As in, one personality. [Stylemint] Keep reading »

New Rules: Young Models Will Be Carded From Now On

The fashion industry says it’s going to be carding its youngest charges from now on and young models under 16 won’t be allowed to walk in fashion shows anymore. According to Council of Fashion Designers of America head Diane von Furstenberg, girls will be required to carry ID showing proof of age. The measure is ostensibly meant to guard against super young girls being exploited, but it seems like a bizarre arbitrary measure. Von Furstenberg herself was actually criticized for allowing 15-year-old model Hailey Clauson to walk in several of her shows, and some feel this is a personal response to that criticism. She sent out a statement to all members of the CFDA, writing: “The casting agents for the Diane von Furstenberg show will be doing [the age restriction] and we encourage others to do the same,”

The whole thing smacks of ridiculousness, considering the arbitrary nature of the age ban. Aren’t they all a bit too young to be strutting their stuff on a runway? Whether 14 or 16, shouldn’t these young girls be in school, rather than prancing around on a catwalk? [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »
