Say hello to Blank, a Japanese import. I’m so into these accessories I found while browsing the “new” section at PixieMarket.com, that I’m literally drawing a blank. Except for maybe an internal dialogue that goes like this: Cute. Cute! Cuuuuuuute. Loving the non-traditional prints of soldiers and dinosaurs on tights, another dinosaur design on an umbrella that makes it look like a piece of vintage china, and a blue and white scarf featuring Greco-Roman motifs. Also available is the Batwing dress, a roomy black tunic, and a leather brooch in the shape of a blue ribbon prize. Freaking. Out. [PixieMarket.com] Keep reading »
Hold on to your Forever 21 tube tops and Kanye glasses, people—MTV has a new reality drama. Called “Styl’d,” it follows the lives of five fashion assistants at MMA (Who? Yeah, some agency we’ve never heard of either). Half docu-drama, half competition for a contract with the company, the show covers the oh-so difficult life of being a stylist. From the trailer alone, it looks tough. They fall in pools! They have to lug racks of clothes up canyon trails! They sleep with each other! (Apparently, there is such a thing as a straight guy stylist.)
“Styl’d” has all the makings of a one-season flop, but you never know. Seeing what’s happened to other MTV alums, this might be the next crop of your fave reality star/designers/singers/scandal makers.
“Styl’d” premieres Sunday, Nov. 1 at 10 p.m. Will you watch? [MTV] Keep reading »
“I hate celebrities. All those pointless girls — I won’t name names, but you know who I mean. They are ‘famous.’ Ridiculous. I like women with style: actresses like Uma Thurman, icons like Audrey Hepburn. I like women with style to wear my shoes.”
—Shoe designer Manolo Blahnik on certain “celebrities.” He may not be willing to name names, but we are. Cough, LindsayParisJessica, cough. [Vogue UK] Keep reading »

Most of the handbags we own are pretty utilitarian, meaning they blend in with most of our clothes and can hold our everyday essentials: keys, wallet, iPod, phone, lip balm, magazine, camera, apple, and work ID. In short, we lug around our life. So, the few times we get all gussied up, we either have to put our pared-down necessities in a cheap black clutch we bought back in college, or carry our huge everyday bag with our dressy dress. Now, however, we’ve found a fun bag that’ll even start conversations for us at awkward cocktail parties. TsuroBride‘s metallic leather animal-shaped clutches, $80 and up, are playful but not tacky, and we think they’d look as elegant and appropriate with a black-tie dress as with jeans and a T-shirt. And, if you like animals so much you don’t wear anything made from them, the designer can create a pleather version for you. [Etsy] Keep reading »

She’s already launched Lovely and Covet, but Sarah Jessica Parker isn’t ready to end her perfume rampage. Along with the newest “Sex and the City” movie, Carrie’s real life fashion maven created SJP, NYC. Because when you already have two perfumes, why not make a trio, right?
The newest scent will launch in February and is capitalizing on the obsession many have with Carrie Bradshaw and her bold fashion sense. “A large part of the inspiration was what I now understand to be people’s impressions of seeing Carrie Bradshaw walk down the street and what feelings that evokes for her and for them — a real sense of freedom and possibilities, a love for the city around her and, of course, fashion,” she said of the new perfume. But, after her last two classy fragrance bottles, the newest one is a little lacking in elegant design, no? How do you feel about the leopard and zebra print paired with bright blue? Would Carrie approve? [WWD] Keep reading »
Not only does Ford donate $20 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure when you test-drive one of their vehicles from now until Dec. 31, but the car company also sells cute apparel and accessories, with 100 percent of the net proceeds going to to the organization. The Warriors in Pink line includes non-cheesy T-shirts, bright flip-flops, an umbrella with a patterned underside, a Martha Stewart-approved stamping kit, and more. We’re especially fond of the beautiful Warrior Woven Scarf, which we can wear all year long in support of finding a cure for breast cancer. [$38, Warriors in Pink]
We’re giving away one basket filled with Warriors in Pink gear — including the woven scarf, tie, umbrella, flip-flops, T-shirt, stamping kit, and more — but you have to work if you want it.

The double helix is the perfect design when it comes to storing a great deal of DNA information. As people are always looking for new ways to maximize storage in our daily lives, it was about time someone came up with a way to combine both the double helix and the closet. Bucharest-based designer Irina Alexandru has put a twist on the traditional closet with her DNA-inspired clothes rack that is part of her saving space furniture collection. It allows for the maximum number of clothing hangers in the smallest amount of space. And although it will probably have to sit in a corner somewhere in the home, it will no doubt be an interesting conversation piece. [Gizmodo via Impact Lab] Keep reading »
