Until recently, Park Avenue millionaires and swamp-trolling Louisiana farmers have been engaged in one of the most unlikely of reciprocal relationships. The Southerners breed and treat alligator skins; the wealthy buy luxury goods made from them.

Think “fashion” and “recession” and the image of dirty, swarthy men probably doesn’t come to mind, yet… READ MORE »

This whole “designs based on Navajo and other indigenous tribal art” fashion moment is clearly not going away. The look is popping up on bags, shoes, dresses, jewelry and even the so-called “hipster snuggie” by Urban Outfitters that is such a blatant rip-off of Lindsey Thornburg’s Cloaks, left (the latter laughably priced at $925, but… READ MORE »

Years ago, I was forced to accept my pale skin after burning my face so badly that blisters covered my nose. Now, while others slather on tanning oil with single-digit sun protection, I have to cover myself with a muumuu and wide-brimmed hat for fear of burning. If the Twilight Saga had been around earlier,… READ MORE »

For me, finally getting my iPhone went way beyond the image of being a cool user of the Apple product. The second I purchased it, I became wrapped up in a world of new accessories, planning to pimp my cell out with a case and get a few pairs of fingerless gloves. In a way,… READ MORE »

What I’m Wearing Today:
Thrift Store Blazer
American Apparel T-shirt
Patrizia Pepe Jeans
Sam Edelman Zoe Boots
Yves Saint Laurent bag

When I think of scrunchies, I remember that scene in “Sex and the City” where Carrie tries to convince Berger that the hair accessory is just so not a New York thing. It wasn’t then, and it hasn’t been for quite some time. But now Marc Jacobs has decided it’s time for the massive hair… READ MORE »

I’ve never been one for long lines and cranky register people/fellow shoppers, so I never usually leave the house on Black Friday.

A garden center in the U.K. is apologizing today for a very un-PC brochure they reportedly sent to about 900,000 homes recently.
