Want to put a little piece of Paris in your pocket? Check out French makeup company Bourjois’ limited edition collection of eyeshadows and blushes, called “Rendez-vous à Paris.” Each compact features a vintage-inspired illustration of a Paris monument or landmark. A shimmery silver hue shows a picture of the grand opera house; a sultry black accent shadow comes with a faux old-fashioned photograph overlooking the Seine; the packaging for the Rose d’Or blush depicts the Eiffel Tower.
Well, or so we thought. Olympia Le Tan’s canvas, brass, felt and silk thread clutches feature first-edition covers of 21 different classics are certainly “different” and chic in the nerdiest way possible. (In fact, Tilda Swinton reportedly scooped one up.) Then we found out they cost $1500.00 each, and our collective jaws dropped. So, um yeah. [Inventor Spot] Keep reading »
Judging from oh, say, all those three wolf moon shirts that keep popping up all over the place, wolves are (still) hot, hot, hot right now! They must be if international “it” girl Daisy Lowe wore this fetching (har) hat to Rihanna’s “it” concert in London this evening. Being complete sheep (ha), we scoured the web in search of this cap, because we simply had to have it. So the bad news is we stumbled upon a few sort-of-but-not-really similar versions at Ecrater and, um, the Minnesota Historical Society, but go figure, they’re waaay too scary-looking. The good news is we finally started to wonder why the hell we were looking for a hat like this in the first place and stopped doing so immediately. Whew, that was a close one. Keep reading »

Unless you are very, very lucky, many women spend tons of money and time in the pursuit of perfect skin. No one seems to stop buying products, and new treatments continue to come out, so it would seem nearly no one achieves the goal.
Dr. Ellen Marmur, chief of dermatology at Mt. Sinai Medical Center, recently went on CBS’s “The Early Show” to talk about the subject, and some of her tips were very surprising. The first issue (which we’re all guilty of), is in fact treating the problem too much. “Many women and men use too many products, like exfoliating way too much,” says Marmur. In the end, she suggests, if you don’t know what the product is going to do for you, then chuck it. Which also debunks the myth that you have to spend a lot on fancy creams and lotions: “You can do that for 100 bucks a year. That’s less than 50 cents a day.” Keep reading »
NBC’s The Thread posted a piece on how to do your makeup on the subway, which got us thinking about situations in which we ladies use cosmetics in public. Not that we haven’t done it a million times before, but the thought of having to primp during your morning commute doesn’t sound very inviting. Not to mention, it’s an open invitation for people to stare at you as you make your horrifying mascara face (oh come on, everyone has one). Plus, it’s probs dangerous. Keep reading »
What I’m Wearing Today:
- Moscot Glasses
- Gap Button-Down
- J.Crew Jeans
- J.Crew Shoes
- J.Crew ring
- Lucca Dog
So I’m working from home today, which has NOTHING to do with the fact that I went out for a big ol’ birthday celebration last night, oh no it doesn’t. This is what I wore, however, to walk my dog, Lucca, and to see my therapist. Yes, even the gold shoes. What? I love them. Keep reading »
While some clothing companies sew sequins on a sweater and call it holiday attire, Kate Spade takes a more original approach, turning the classic bows that get stuck on top of presents into hair accessories, ballet flats, necklaces, and, our personal favorite, rings. These aren’t accessories you’d wear year-round, but it sure would be fun to bring them out every November through New Year’s — and maybe on our birthday, too. Keep reading »
Do you use lip liner? Mostly I find it a waste of time, but there are loads of reasons why I should get on the lip liner bandwagon: Lip color has more staying power, color doesn’t “bleed” or feather out of your lip borders and your lips do look ever so slightly bigger when they’re lined. Now for the reason why I don’t wear it—it’s got a bad rep. All I think of when I hear lip liner are those early ’90s looks with the very visible, two-different-toned lips where all you saw was a line traced around the mouth that was many shades darker than the actual lip color.
Well, Marion Cotillard proves, above, that lip liner can be subtle and you don’t even have to wear dark, heavy, matte lipstick to make it work. Here she is, working the red carpet last night with a pretty and chic pout. If you look really closely at the blown-up photo, you’ll notice the lip liner. So how do you make liner work for you? Well … Keep reading »
