Wedge sandals are a huge trend right now, and many pairs include obvious nods to 1970s footwear: chunky platforms, wood heels, brown leather, gold accents, crochet details, etc. One of my favorite summer looks is chunky vintage-style sandals with a breezy sundress; it’s such a simple and flattering combination. Click through for some super cute, super ’70s-inspired sandals that fit the bill — all for less than a hundred bucks…
Lily Allen and her sister Sarah Owen have collaborated on Lucy in Disguise, a modern take on retro style clothing. As owners of a vintage store of the same name, the sisters definitely know about fashions from decades past. But their Haight & Ashbury Dress confuses us because we don’t know anyone who wants to spend $240 to dress like an ethereal wench. We suspect that folks who enjoy Renaissance faires shell out that much money and more for their costumes, but at least those are appropriate for the period.

But I was curious about the new, limited-edition Nice Stems! by OPI collection of shades of pink, from pale frosty pink to rich fuchsia. I was initially drawn to “I Lily Love You,” because who doesn’t love a tint of pink with flecks of glitter?

You know what dogs really need? A bowl of dog food that makes its own gravy. A tennis ball to slobber on. Some shots to keep the worms away. But most of all, the one thing dogs need is constant love.
You know what dogs don’t need? Everything on this list of dumb luxury items for your pooch.
Yes, all of these ridiculous bowwow baubles are real. And yes, all of these canine luxuries will be used as fodder to incite the coming revolution. Dogs are not fashion accessories, and if you’re decking Fido out in frivolous finery, then you are dumb. Also: you’re either rich or bellybutton-deep in credit card debt. But mostly dumb.
