Get A Closer Look At the Jimmy Choo Collection For H&M


Been chomping at the bit to see more of the Jimmy Choo collection for H&M? Check out this exclusive video with Choo’s founder (and quite the stylish-looking lady) Tamara Mellon, who gives a walk-through of the line. Surprisingly, one of the best parts of the collection is actually the clothes, which have been overshadowed by Choo’s main draw (shoes, obvi). For starters, the cute electric blue shift Mellon wears in the video is part of the deal, plus there’s a glam black evening jumper and a one-shouldered leather dress with ruffle details. Everything is designed to be mixed and matched.

Some great fashion advice from Mellon: she starts conceptualizing an outfit based on the shoes first, and then the accessories. Do you ever dress from the bottom up? Or do you start with the clothes and then add on? [YouTube] Keep reading »

Amelia Earhart—The New Sexy Style Icon?

For Hermès’ fall/winter catalog, the high-fashion house has created an Amelia Earhart-themed spread for its Jean Paul Gaultier-designed collection. Inspired by the new movie? Or just coincidence? In any case, the image of Amelia has been brought back—the aviation record breaker, that is, and not our lovely site editor (although she is super stylish, too).

In this series photographed by Peter Lindbergh, “Amelia” is sexier than ever with strong and manly trench coats, fur-collar bomber jackets, and leather driving gloves. The looks are pretty badass, but we’re not so sure we’d accessorize with aviator goggles and a large wrench. Think we’ll be seeing more sexy Amelia Earhart-inspired designs? Check out a few more pics after the jump. [ViewonFashion Magazine] Keep reading »

Han Cholo Straight Razorblade Pendant

So this pendant is meant for a boy, which is kind of cool, but on a girl it would be totally badass. Take away all images of all the places a lady could shave, and instead think of this as a warning to all foes: “You’ll get cut if you mess with me!” We’re not condoning violence, mind you. We usually cut and slash egos, not flesh, with our quick wit. [$57, 80's Purple] Keep reading »

The Halloween Inspiration Board: Carrie Prejean

Oh Carrie Prejean, we’ve had so much fun getting to know the former Miss California and her distaste for gay marriage in the last year. She’s become one of the most recognizable beauty queens that we’ve ever had the pleasure to see actin’ a fool on national TV! In fact, she makes the perfect Halloween costume, especially if you live in a warm part of the country and can feasibly wear a bathing suit at the end of October. (If not, a tacky white evening dress is a good substitute.) Keep reading »

How To Get The Layered Look Right

After looking through this blog post of all sorts of beautifully (and expertly) layered folks on the street, I came to the following sartorial realization: creating a slim and cohesive layered look ain’t all that easy. (Though this girl, above, certainly makes it look that way!) So many people (myself included sometimes) end up with big, bulky outfits that look disheveled, and not artfully so. So I figured it was high time we passed on a few layering tricks and tips—it’s all about balance, color and texture. Check out all 10 after the jump, and if you have any fail-safe methods for looking chicly layered, I’m dying to hear!

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: A Hamburglar Sighting In Prague

Staska looks like an adorable, bohemian version of the Hamburglar while on a break from work in Prague. She meticulously chooses her accessories to compliment her look. Where do we start? Check out her two different earrings, the way her socks echo her undershirt, and the red trainers that make it all come together. We’re getting hungry. Keep reading »

Quick Tip Of The Day: How To Tuck In A Too-Long Belt

While I like a nice bangle bracelet or a long charm-laden necklace as much as the next girl, my go-to accessory is the belt, because adding one — or switching them up — can change an entire outfit. The only problem is that belts that work with lower-slung pants are way too long to wear with dresses or over cardigans. J.Crew often styles its catalog models with the end of their belts tucked in, and while we like the casual coolness of this, Kristen Bell took this technique one step further by turning a too-long belt into a decorative knot in the front. To tuck yours the way Kristen did, take the end of your belt and slip it under, then over the belt, pulling it through the loop you created. Voilà! Keep reading »

Twitter, The New Public Food Shaming Diet

You know how people say that being held accountable (to others, not just yourself, that is) actually helps weight loss? When you have to show up for a previously scheduled training appointment, you are way more apt to workout than if you just “try” to get to the gym every night. And when you head to, say, one of those Weight Watchers meetings, you are more likely to not overeat because once a week you have to face the music about your daily menus. Now, with the help of Twitter, some people are taking this accountability concept to the Nth degree—Tweet What You Eat, known to its users as twye, is the latest diet craze. The concept is simple: It’s an online food diary where you log absolutely everything you eat and drink. All you have to do is set up an account (or log in if you’re already on Twitter) and start tweeting away. The idea is that if you are forced to write down everything you put in your mouth, for all to see, you’ll think twice about eating that second (or third) slice of cake. Would you try out this online food diary? Or are you more private about your consumption? [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Barbie Goes Back To The ’80s

Barbie collectors, get psyched for December: Mattel is launching their “Ladies of the ’80s” line, complete with mini interpretations of the great Joan Jett, Debbie Harry, and Cyndi Lauper. Joan is dressed in not only leather pants but also hot pink high tops, while Cyndi flashes her fishnets, and Debbie shows off a pink body-conscious strappy dress that could easily be worn today. One thing that would make these dolls even better? They should come with their own personal soundtracks. [Jezebel]

$10,000 Buys You A Lifetime Of Not Smelling Like The Joneses

Sure, in a perfect world, our favorite fragrance would be all our own. It would be an exclusive scent that smells like no other, and when we left a room, people would say, “Oh, it still smells like her,” and sigh wistfully. (For that matter, no one would have the same H&M dresses either, hate that.) Sadly, that privilege isn’t exactly realistic when you consider that L’Artisan Parfumeur is selling that very exclusivity to the tune of $10,000. For that low, low price, you can purchase one of eight new couture fragrances that comes with a “certificate of authentication,” and twelve bottles of various sizes. You may also opt to purchase another bottle for $450 at some point during your lifetime, and can will the certificate, or “ownership,” of the scent to your heirs. Personally, if I was rich and decided to blow 10 grand on some perfume, I would kind of want some say in choosing what it smelled like. But then again I’d probably be too lazy busy eating bonbons in bed sooo …. [Stylelist] Keep reading »
