Is The Twilight Saga Making Pale Skin More Desireable?

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, I might not have had to endure the pain of a lobster red face or waited so long to stock up on SPF. According to the Daily Mail, women are embracing their pale skin following the release of “New Moon.” Keep reading »

Multitasking: A Phone And Bracelet In One

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, the device became an excuse to add new things to my wardrobe. (Although, I wouldn’t go so far as to say: “That top would look really great with my iPhone.”)

Here’s a new idea that could potentially combine the world of digital communications and fashion, and take the iPhone off the map as the “it” accessory du jour. Keep reading »

Erin’s Style Diary: Monday

What I’m Wearing Today:

  • Thrift Store Blazer
  • American Apparel T-shirt
  • Patrizia Pepe Jeans
  • Sam Edelman Zoe Boots
  • Yves Saint Laurent bag

This is what I refer to as “my uniform,” which is basically an easy go-to consisting of my favorite old jeans (which miraculously fit even after consuming T-day extravaganza food and drink all weekend), a soft t-shirt and my most beloved recent thrift store purchase. Today I’m wearing some ridiculously high platforms because I’ve been obsessing over humongous shoes ever since my foster dog ate my pair of four-inch-plus pony skin Louboutin wedges. It’s a recession, so these are suede and by Steve Sam Edelman, cry-cry (kidding). I probably could’ve saved even more money buying them at a sex shop though. Keep reading »

Dig Out Your Scrunchies — They’re Back In Style!

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 tie to come back into fashion, and along with his blessing comes the new, more chic title of “hair furniture.” No, it’s not furniture made of hair (which I originally imagined and cringed), but rather the idea that your head should be dressed up with massive adornments. Personally, I’m all about the understated glamour when it comes to hair and really not ready to travel back to the ’90s via neon scrunchies. Are you? [Guardian] Keep reading »

Cyber Monday: Your Click-To-Buy Gifts Cheat Sheet

I’ve never been one for long lines and cranky register people/fellow shoppers, so I never usually leave the house on Black Friday. I did get up one year for it, at 4 a.m., and went to Kohl’s—my mom wanted company and I was curious and fully committed to going back to bed ASAP after we left the store. What did I see? Mass hysteria. One guy bought about 45 blenders and was rolling them out on a flatbed push-cart. Another lady had the entire stock of black gloves in her cart and was essentially snarling at anyone who came near her (or her stash of pleather). People were yelling at the register employees. The parking lot was a road-rage mess. Frankly, I don’t care what sort of sale is going on; it ain’t worth the very un-yuletide cheer people seem to have going on. Internet holiday shopping, however, is a 100 percent different story—I am all about it. So, as you may guess, today is my day to shine. And I’m not alone. I hear analysts are projecting that 96.5 million Americans are planning to buy something from the internet today—over 10 million more people than last year.

Oh, and as a gift from us to you, we’ve got a bunch of great sales listed, after the jump. Because sitting there at work, you can get, like, half your holiday shopping done (or, OK, fine, pick up a few things for yourself). Just don’t get caught! Keep reading »

What Do You REALLY Want For Christmas This Year?

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. An ad in the brochure suggested that men “Make her feel special with a clothesline this Christmas,” prompting some women to criticize the store for its old-school sale tactics. Margaret Green, from a women’s equality group in England, told The Daily Telegraph that the advertisement was an “insult,” saying: “I feel for any man that follows the brochure’s advice because I don’t think a clothesline is going to make anyone feel special. A gift like this is so unromantic and useless it is likely to create a frosty atmosphere in some households on Christmas day.” Well, we can’t have frosty atmospheres on Christmas day, can we? Although, on second thought, isn’t that kind of what everyone’s wishing for when they sing about dreaming of a white Christmas? Anyway, frost or not, we can’t have guys thinking we all want lightweight aluminum clotheslines for the holidays, so let’s spill it: What’s on your wish list this year and what can your significant other do to make you feel special?

Helena Christensen Is Pro-Nudity Past 40

Could middle-aged women become the new ideal of female hotness? It would seem Helena Christensen thinks so, as the 40-year-old supermodel has been making moves to adjust image standards. She appeared nude on the cover of i-D this month (along with Eva Herzigova and Claudia Schiffer), and is also in the buff for a spread (no pun intended) in Elle‘s January issue. According to the Telegraph, Christensen is, “flabbergasted that people could be offended by pictures of naked women.” In the accompanying article, Helena also admits: “I have no problems with showing my body. I love the female shape. It’s crazy — you can have movie posters with men with machine guns but oh, God forbid you show nipples.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. While we give kudos to Christensen’s embrace of the female form at all ages, we do have to say … do many 40-year-old women look as good as her naked? [Telegraph.co.uk] Keep reading »

French Marie Claire’s Bedazzled Babies

This month, the French edition of Marie Claire ran a spread featuring jewelry with babies as the models. Was this supposed to be a cute idea that turned out ultra creepy? Is that baby wearing a bracelet as an arm cuff? The tagline: “My baby, my treasure … ” [MarieClaire.fr] Keep reading »

Your Cordury Skirt Is a Sin

I don’t love corduroy skirts either, but this guy seems to have a major hatred for the fabric. Can someone give this guy a job as the fashion police for UsWeekly? [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
