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?

A series of new VW ads show male and female mannequins dressed in “soiled” denim. Looks like someone had a fashion emergency … [FashionIndie.com] Keep reading »

Give Your Dog A Hipster ‘Stache & Make Him Happy At The Same Time

The mustache obsession continues! Yesterday I needed something to make me smile (I wasn’t feeling so fab) and then I came across this totally awesome dog toy and I did more than that — I squealed. I am so going to put this mustache chew toy in my dog Lucca’s stocking (yes, she gets a stocking, what’s wrong with that?) and the next time we need to go somewhere in disguise, she’ll be all set.

Hermes Is Not This Homeowner’s Favorite Luxury Brand

Despite being a fan of plaid, I’ve never particularly liked Burberry’s signature print. But that’s OK, because the owner of this home, Norwegian artist Jens Werner Andersen, more than makes up for my lack of enthusiasm. [via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Makeup Crush: Bourjois Limited Edition Compacts

Want to put a little piece of Paris in your pocket? Check out French makeup company Bourjois’ limited edition collection of eyeshadows and blushes, called “Rendez-vous à Paris.” Each compact features a vintage-inspired illustration of a Paris monument or landmark. A shimmery silver hue shows a picture of the grand opera house; a sultry black accent shadow comes with a faux old-fashioned photograph overlooking the Seine; the packaging for the Rose d’Or blush depicts the Eiffel Tower.

They’re only around for a little bit, so grab one up quickly. They’re the perfect stocking stuffers (or just a très chic present for yourself). [About $10 each, Asos.com] Keep reading »

Gift Idea For The Literary Fashionista

Well, or so we thought. Olympia Le Tan’s canvas, brass, felt and silk thread clutches feature first-edition covers of 21 different classics are certainly “different” and chic in the nerdiest way possible. (In fact, Tilda Swinton reportedly scooped one up.) Then we found out they cost $1500.00 each, and our collective jaws dropped. So, um yeah. [Inventor Spot] Keep reading »
