We’re all about wearing thick wool tights to stay warm during the winter, but Kate Hudson looks like she could use a pair of ski pants walking around ice cold, super windy Manhattan today. [N.Y.C., 12/11/09] Keep reading »
SandraRose.com featured this sad story of a mother (her name was kept anonymous, probably better for her safety) who got really sick and tired of her baby being so … bald. “It’s never too early for my baby to start looking glamorous like Beyonce!” said the mother. What did she decide to do about the problem? She gave her kid some long, luxurious locks, natch. Don’t worry, she didn’t get her a weave, which could be painful and dangerous for baby’s head. She got her a less dangerous, yet still fiercely fashionable, lace front wig. “I wouldn’t be caught dead without my lace front and my baby won’t either,” this doting mother explained. OK. I’m not laughing anymore. Does this scare the crap out of anyone else? I don’t know whether to cry or call Child Protective Services. What if this trend catches on? Then what’s next? Thong diapers?

In Taiwan, Eva Airlines has decked out an Airbus Hello Kitty-style. Think this would relax fearful flyers or make them more freaked-out? Hmm … we wonder if the safety card features HK illustrations as well. If Hello Kitty can survive an airplane crash … [PSFK] Keep reading »
If you tell me I can look like Beyonce, I’m going to listen. The lady has an amazing body and certainly shows it off — strutting around in her music videos and on stage in itty-bitty outfits and curve-hugging dresses. Just who does she have to thank for those perfectly toned curves? Trainer Marco Borges and his Power Moves system, which focuses on multiple muscle groups — think jumping lunges and reverse lunge presses. Already I’m tired. Click through to check out her (seriously intense) tour workout plan! Keep reading »

As we head into winter, the days are getting shorter, the leaves are changing color, and our skin is majorly drying out.

Dr. Hunter’s Cuticle Cream to the rescue! This rose-scented cream softens cuticles and conditions nails, giving them a healthy glow. With packaging so apothecary-cute and portable, we’ll be able to fix our moisture deficiency wherever the cool, dry winter wind takes us. [$5, Caswell-Massey]

J. Crew has come out with this chic 15-inch laptop case, which you’ll actually find in the men’s section. Channeling that classic prepster style, the zippered sheath shows off a tan leather border with a choice of red, navy, or black for a main color. Unfortunately, the tech accessory doesn’t quite bring the J. Crew prices you’re used to—at $285 each, the cost seems uncharacteristically high. So, why? For starters, the goods are a collaboration with a Montreal-based luxury label called Want Les Essentiels de la Vie, but also the chosen materials sound ultra-fancy. The bag uses “the finest” 100-percent certified organic Turkish cotton, sustainably produced leather from Norway, brass hardware, and is reinforced with Teflon fiber.
So maybe you’re paying for what you get, but in the meantime we’ll be stalking the J. Crew sales before paying full price (please put these on sale, please!). [$285, J. Crew] Keep reading »
Just in time for the serious nesting months (i.e, the freezing cold days of real-deal winter), Lonny is back with a second helping of all things adorably home. For the December issue we get a peak inside interior designer Vanessa De Varga’s beach bungalow, lots of gold and sparkly things you’ll want to buy thisverysecond, a look at design queen Kelly Wearstler’s new tabletop line and and a crapload of seriously chic black-and-white schemed rooms. You will die. But my very favorite feature is all about J.Crew’s collection store here in NYC. I’ve been in numerous times and more often than not I find myself marveling more at the decor than the actual clothes (and that’s saying a lot!). They use loads of chalkboard paint on the walls (J.Crew creative director Jenna Lyons also uses it all over her home, too!) and to great effect—it’s matte enough that it’s a comfortable shade of black, rather than jarring. Check it out. [Lonny] Keep reading »
We know the holidays are all about wholesomeness, but we can’t resist this little seducer of sin. Michelle Chang’s baby snake necklace is too sexy to ignore: an infantile serpent mounts and wraps itself around a thin, delicate gold chain. String one on to add some slither to your step. [$52, Michelle Chang]

Maybe dressing like a guidette isn’t your thing (we’re hoping to God), but you can still show your “Jersey Shore” pride with this line of T-shirts and panties. To recap: one character on the MTV reality show, Mike, cockily refers to himself as “The Situation,” which has something to do with his washboard abs. So when “The Sitch,” as Amelia likes to call him, started working in the local customized tacky T-shirt shop, you knew it would only be a matter of time before his “The Situation”-emblazoned boyshort creation would spawn an entire fashion empire. Well, here you have it. Show your love for Mike by throwing one of these tees over your surgically enhanced breasts (although he’d probably like it better if you weren’t wearing it at all).
