“I remember meeting this girl in Florida, maybe the year before I started [to model], and she was the daughter of a friend of my dad. She was, like, ‘I wanna be a model.’ I thought it was so vain, really embarrassing.

Honey, if only I had a crystal ball that could tell me what was going to happen in 2010! But, I’ll just have to make do and look fabu with my nail art version of the ball they drop on NYE in Time Square. It’s so sparkly, I cannot resist it’s shiny powers. So, I decided to paint a portrait of it on my favorite canvas, my digits. Here’s how I blinged in 2010 after the jump! Keep reading »
Not every girl feels comfortable in vampy lingerie. And now, those of us who prefer more demure underthings can stock up on bras and boyshorts with a dash of old-fashioned glamour at Anthropologie. The store has several sets of “underpinnings” that are more modest than the usual bedroom attire; however, just because they aren’t slinky doesn’t mean they aren’t sexy. [$16 and up, Anthropologie] Keep reading »
So, we all have those days—the days where your hair is slightly greaseball, a little bedhead-y and you just don’t want to deal. (And if I had to guess, a few of those downtime-filled days are coming up for everyone? Hopefully.) Instead of just throwing up your hair into a tight ponytail, where it’s pretty obvious you haven’t seen a bottle of shampoo in a day or two, utilize the magical hiding powers of the high bun, like Diane Kruger, above. Loving her casual cool ‘do—and loving even more that it’s a snap to do it yourself. Here’s how… Keep reading »
A good Francophile knows Deyrolle. The famous taxidermy boutique has been operating out of Paris’s 7th arrondissement since 1831 and inside is a veritable cabinet of curiosities. It’s a must-see stop on any tourist’s list and a go-to if you’re in the market for a six foot taxidermied polar bear, framed rare beetle, or intimidating stuffed leopard. Deyrolle has apparently teamed up with Opening Ceremony for a little collaboration which produced these nature-inspired scarves. How very chic! [Opening Ceremony] Keep reading »
Due, in most part, to the fact that it’s their job to be surrounded by all things fashionable, most models end up with a badass sense of style and innate ability to, well, look good always. While some do rock the boat a bit with their day-to-day looks– think Iekeliene Stange and Agyness Deyn– we have noticed a model “uniform” of sorts that most of those well-dressed, lovely ladies are working. Here’s how to master it.

When we heard Hot Topic was doing a designer collaboration, we immediately thought, “Oh no.” When we heard that it was with someone named John Eshaya, we thought, “Who?” John Eshaya, it turns out, actually has quite the interesting resume. He created Jet, a clothing brand and subdivision of Fred Segal, the California boutique chain and celeb favorite. He also helped run Ron Herman, another offshoot of the Fred Segal brand. Starting in May, his designs will be sold at Hot Topic and Torrid stores (the plus-sized label). The collection will bring Cali casual with sweatpants and jersey get-ups, which Eshaya says, “is kind of giving the Jet look for these girls that are plus-size and keeping it young and happening, so it is not like they are having to wear stuff that isn’t super cool.” While this sounds super mainstream, we admit that it could be potentially decent.

Forget that gift cards generally make lousy presents, another reason why they’re an all-around bad idea: they’re becoming popular vehicles of crime. The New York Times reports that more and more, retail employees are committing theft by manipulating stores’ gift cards. When you think about it, these electronic devices are far more clever than filling one’s pockets up with cash or goods, as it’s essentially hidden money. Joshua Bamfield, author of the Global Retail Theft Barometer, tells the Times, “To employees, this is like currency. It’s almost as good as the U.S. dollar.”
So what should you be looking out for? One popular tactic is for a clerk to distract you while they hand you a zero-value card and take your money themselves. Ask them to verify the value in front of you, or come back and ask a different employee to check the balance. Thank you for reading this very important PSA. [New York Times] Keep reading »
Normally, I’m not a resolution person—I make them, stick to them for, oh, two weeks and then I forget entirely about them. Fun times. For me, making resolutions usually makes me feel worse about my life—just one more reminder of stuff I haven’t yet done. So, imagine my anxiety when reading about beauty resolutions over at Style.com. Shockingly, though, all the resolutions were totally pull-off-able and now I’m inspired! So, I’ll start off with my New Year beauty to-do: “Throw out my mascara on a regular basis.” If you’ve ever seen any of my mascara tubes, you know my makeup MO: I use and use and use mascara for months, no years, and never throw it out. Grody, I know. And not the best idea for my eyes, medically speaking. So, that’s my beauty resolution for 2010. What’s yours? Start using heat-protectant before flat-ironing your hair? Regular waxes? Non-regular waxes? Using a daily eye cream? [Style.com] Keep reading »
