When Fashion Bloggers Hit Big … Are They Still The Same Bloggers?

In case you haven’t noticed, fashion blogging has reached new heights of celebrity and popularity. What started out as a wholly indie movement—girls discussing fashion on their Live Journals, or posting pics through a Blogger account to share with friends—has now turned into a veritable “field.” To begin a fashion blog nowadays often isn’t just about personal expression, but also about assuming a higher editorial knowledge of style and the industry.

And now, it’s also about freebies (and fame). At least for those who become the popular kids on the web. Keep reading »

Leighton Meester’s Bizarre (But Cool) Eye Shadow Trick

First, ignore the fact that not only did Leighton Meester play up her lips (bright red!), but also her eyes (major smokey shadow!) at the same time—I’m not a fan, but, hey, rules are created to be broken. Instead, let’s focus on the crazy interesting eye shadow trick she’s got going on: Shadow in her crease, shadow above her eye, but no shadow (or at least a totally different and light shadow) on her eyelids. While I’m not advising you do that for anything other than a red carpet appearance, I do think you could copy that trick with less jarring colors and it’d look pretty freaking awesome. I’m feeling a lighter wash of, say, peachy brown?

Here’s how to do it …

Dina Lohan’s Shoe Line Gets Lampooned

First, there was Lindsay Lohan and her preposterous line of leggings. Then came mom Dina Lohan and her “Shoe-han” shoe line. SHOE-HAN? In internet-speak, I say: WTF? Now, some anonymous individual has taken it upon himself/herself to pen a faux-Dina shoe blog featuring some wackadoddle styles that would be just perfect for the 2010 Shoe-han collection set to debut on Mother’s Day. There are the Denise Richards “It’s Complicated” gold pumps, the garbage can stripper shoes, and the My Pretty Pony patent leather heels. I hope we aren’t limited to one pair. I WANT THEM ALL.

Hair Model Citizen: Lily Allen’s Skunky Do

We’re not saying whether or not we’re wild about Lily Allen‘s new ‘do (we’ll leave that up to you), but she is definitely a Hair Model Citizen for busting out something, well, interesting. So she’s got the rock star platinum thing going on: really choppy, thick bangs and plenty of chunks of black. Now the only way to get this look–if you’re interested, that is–is to be prepared to do some serious damage to your hair. You’d have to bleach the whole thing and then separately dye the black, unless you already have black hair and you could just not dye a few strands. On second thought, we’d recommend leaving this look to Lily Allen. [Manchester, 11/17/09] Keep reading »

Louise Goldin For Topshop Will Put Your Eye Out

If these shoes are a question, the correct answer is yes. Jimmy Choo did H&M; now, Louise Goldin does Topshop. We love these studded pumps that look like porcupine spines for your feet. They come in chrome too and are a toned-down version of what Goldin’s models wore on the runway, sans crystals. We’ll take every color they’ve got, please. [MYKROMAG] Keep reading »

Amelia’s Style Diary: Wednesday

What I’m Wearing Today:

  • Lorick Dress
  • Red Bird Cargidan/Vest
  • Club Monaco Blazer
  • Gold Chain Necklace (birthday gift!)
  • J.Crew Tights
  • J.Crew Shoes
  • Moscot Glasses

So, aside from the tights and dress (this one is by the designer who does Blair’s mom’s line on “Gossip Girl”), I am wearing the same outfit as Monday. I’m a creature of habit, y’all. Seriously, I just can’t not wear these shoes! They’re so cute and fancy and, also, all my other heels need to be resoled, so there’s that. Anyway, I decided to take it up a notch today, after yesterday’s slobfest. And I’m wearing my glasses more: A) because I love them and B) because I need to place a new order at 1-800-Contacts. Anyway, loving my outfit today. Very happy with it. Keep reading »

Fashion Scandal Du Jour: Underage Drinking On Shopbop!


OK, people, brace yourselves: There are kids who are drinking underage, probably all the time. We know, we know. How do we know? Because we watched this Stylecaster and Shopbop video of Manhattan socials Poppy Delevinge, Hayley Bloomingdale and Isabelle McNally getting ready for a night on the town (styled by Shopbop’s own fashion director Kate Ciepluch), and it starts with swigs of champers and involves some flip cup. Only problem is, Miss McNally is still a teenager. D’oh! Oh well, like we care. Plus, what’s that show the kids are wild about? The “Gossip Girl” thingie? Aren’t those fictional rich gals always downing martinis? Anyway … In my day that was an after-school special. Now, not so much. [Shopbop] Keep reading »

Do High-End Boutiques Fashionably Discriminate?

The other day, I went into a very exclusive boutique. You know, the kind with the all-glass front, and the man at the door who has to unlock the door for you, and the shoes start at $1,500 a pop and the dresses run into the tens of thousands. I wasn’t going in there just to be a lookie-loo, either. I was interested in buying a ring that they had in stock. Unfortunately, I got treated like a potential shoplifter. Is that right?
