Claw Your Way Down The Rabbit Hole

Every good movie deserves a proper nail polish collaboration, right? OPI fell down the rabbit hole and found inspiration in Tim Burton’s delicious-looking new film “Alice in Wonderland.” The product of their fantastical dreams turned into four different shades: Absolutely Alice, Mad as a Hatter, Off With Her Red! and Thanks So Muchness. These looks are certainly not for anyone afraid of color or glitter, since each is just as extravagant and eye-catching as the next. From the deep red for the Red Queen to the glittery black for the Mad Hatter, each pairs with its character to crazy perfection, which makes sense, as those on-screen personalities really do need outlandish colors to compete. The polishes, available at salons nationwide in January, will retail for $8.50 each or $20 for the set. [All Lacquered Up] Keep reading »

How Sexy Is Your Apartment?

Sure, lots of blogs are rounding up the sexiest stories, trends, and scandals of the year — including us — but when Apartment Therapy does it, it’s a little different. Among AT’s sexiest posts of 2009, don’t miss what happens when furniture gets it on, an odd array of chic condom dispensers, the sexiest … bathroom soaps, what happens when you do the deed in a swinging bed, and naughty lampshades. What do you do to sex up your apartment to set the mood? Turn on the lava lamp? Throw a red piece of fabric over the light? Scrub the toilet? Tell us in the comments. Keep reading »

The Adam & Eve Clutch—Fashion’s Original Sin?

Can’t quite commit to the popular androgynous fashion trend sweeping the nation? Don’t want to wear a boy-cut without having a bit of girlish flair in there? Now you can go both ways with this Adam & Eve purse from Patricia Field. The metallic and lacquer torso clutch is half-man, half-woman—meaning you can swing both ways and wear it with both your busty-boob dresses and your andro ponchos. [Fashion Tribes] Keep reading »

Could You Give Up Your Beauty Products For Home Remedies?

The challenge: substitute every single “normal” product in your beauty routine for an all-natural, possibly edible, old-fashioned beauty recipe—oh, and no makeup! One brave woman is trying to do just that, and after a week of substituting odor-eating baking soda, apple cider vinegar rinses/milk rather than shampoo/conditioner, and using lemon and apple cider vinegar as a facial wash, things aren’t looking pretty (see her very frustrated shot, above).

Quotable: Lindsay Lohan Threatens Us With More “Fashion”

Just when we thought Lindsay might decide to listen to her critics and give up her dream of being a celebrated fashion designer, she goes and alerts us all that she refuses to stop at those awful leggings. Guess you can’t keep a Lohan down. [Twitter-Lindsay Lohan] Keep reading »

Korean W Gives Demi Moore Her Hip Back

Poor Demi Moore. Just as the Photoshop drama regarding her W cover finally became last week’s news, the Korean version of the magazine had to go and stir up more controversy. As is the norm, the international mag reprinted the American cover, but failed to use the exact same copy of the image. To recap, after the initial drama, Demi took to Twitter and blasted out what she claimed to be an un-Photoshopped TwitPic of the issue which matches the American issue, followed by her lawyers sending a “threatening letter” to bloggers. But look really close at Demi’s left hip on the Korean W cover. See that extra bit of skin? She was Photoshopped, plain and simple. Now the question is, just which issue was touched up: the skinner hip or the fleshier one? So far there’s no response on the new Korean cover. Meh, at the end of the day, they’re probably both altered, just in different ways. [Hm, or are they just cropped differently?--Editor] [NY Post] Keep reading »

Spotted: Rihanna’s Scary Spiked Suit At Topshop

We know you’re dying for one—as of Feb. 3, the masses will be able to buy their very own spiked sweat suit à la Rihanna. The suit was revealed as part of Topshop‘s collaboration previews and is created by U.K. designer Ashish Gupta. (Ann Sofie Back and Jonathan Saunders are also collaborating for spring.) Says Ashish: “Studs and spikes were a big part of my mainline collection this season, and it felt right to carry that through in some way for my range for Topshop. I love the contrast between soft sweatshirt fabric and metal spikes—it’s classic sportswear meets punk.” Check out more of the Ashish collection along with the duds from Ann Sofie Back and Jonathan Saunders, after the jump!

AE Cable Knit Studded Sweater

Every year we buy a few sweaters, but only end up wearing a couple favorites over and over. This year, though, we’ve found one that deserves to be added to the wardrobe mix because it pulls double duty. This particular sweater is perfect for layering under a quilted vest and toning down a full mini-skirt by day, but will also look sleek with a pair of skinny jeans and knee-high boots for night. The cozy cable knit is what winter is all about, but the wooden studs keep it from being too collegiate and stuffy. [$69.50, America Eagle Outfitters] Keep reading »

Crash Jewelry Wears It Like It Is

Some people can profit from an economic depression if they figure out how to cater to a desperate clientele. Clearly, the fashion industry isn’t among those folks because they’ve been in the crapper all year thanks to curbed recessionary spending. Maybe the answer is to confront the problem and tell it like it is. At least, that’s what Crash Jewelry does with its recession-themed necklaces. Each blinged-out accessory refers to depressing 2009 statistics, whether it’s unemployment rates or national debt. So why not spruce up your hobo duds with a beaded plaque around your neck that demonstrates consumer debt? Or a jeweled pie chart pendant that explains national federal debt? Hey, at the very least, these might one day become collector’s items and actually be worth something. [Inventor Spot] Keep reading »
