Recently, Heidi Montag was spotted reading (yes, reading!) The Da Vinci Code (yes, an actual book, albeit a cheesy one) during her pedicure. It got me thinking: What is your usual pedi M.O.? Do you read the salon mags (that’s my go-to reading material—and I’ve been known to bring in an ice cream cone for a seriously awesome Friday night … yes, I realize that’s potentially lame)? Bring your own book a la Heidi? Do you only read your own magazines from home? Are you typing away on the Crackberry? Or, do you actually stop, and take the time to close your eyes, sit and relax? I’m intrigued! Do tell. Keep reading »
Rachel Zoe‘s large-sunglassed visage has become a ubiquitous image. Her tent dresses are recognizable from yards away. And that mane of wavy blond hair has been copied by Midwesterners and starlets alike. Why not add to all the Zoe worship on Halloween by being her? But you’ve kind of got to take it to the hilt. Here’s how … Keep reading »
There’s something about NYC fall weather that makes us want to wear preppy outfits, even though we’ve been out of school for years and are miles away from the nearest Ivy League college. Today, Amelia, Catherine, and I were able to stay true to our personal styles, despite rocking the same back-to-school trend. Amelia made her coral dress less girly by adding her new favorite blazer, patterned tights and two-tone riding boots. She looks like the senior we all wanted to be when we were freshmen. Catherine went the casual route with dark-wash skinny jeans, ballet flats, and a chambray button-down shirt. And I can’t forget her signature cardi (in a blazer-style cut today). My outfit is kind of a fluke because everything else I tried on this morning didn’t work. Catherine and I are dressed very similarly, but I dressed my version up by rocking my animal-print pumps (now that it’s cold enough for calf hair). And yes, that’s the same cap I’ve been wearing for the past week because I haven’t had the time to wash my hair. Keep reading »
Unlike this model at Bernhard Willhelm’s Spring/Summer 2010 show, I will not be wearing a plant on my head this fall, next spring, or any season. You? [10/2/09, Paris] Keep reading »
What the heck is a Lipstick Tomboy? According to Clutch Magazine, a Lipstick Tomboy is a woman who is the opposite of the “girly girl” and is “clean, stylish and confident living by their own definition of womanliness.” The Lipstick Tomboy doesn’t care about trends and wears clothing that suits her body instead of what the fashion world dictates. OK, that sounds like most of the women I know, but writer Sky Obercam gives more details on this type of woman, and, it turns out, a Lipstick Tomboy simply sounds like a lazy woman who doesn’t mind looking like crap on a daily basis. She doesn’t own an iron, has holes in her clothing (that could easily be mended), has spots on her clothes, and leaves her eyebrows ungroomed. I also think the Lipstick Tomboy would be too lazy to put on lipstick. Keep reading »
There are some things that you would think wouldn’t follow you into adulthood. Fear of the dark, a love for Disneyland, jelly sandals. One of the more annoying ones: acne. Seriously, isn’t that supposed to be one of those things that just scars your high school experience? Waking up to see new pimples when you’re in your 20s? Gah!
If you’re like me, you’ve been plagued with acne since a teenager, and while it’s not as severe as say, those scary Proactive commercials, it’s an issue that’s persisted into your adult years despite your attempts to solve the problem. Considering Accutane? Read on to find out about my experience.

If you thought Sarah Palin’s moment in the spotlight was over after the election, you were seriously mistaken. The “average hockey mom/governor” won’t give up that fast. Already she has transformed herself from politician to author, completing her memoir and landing on the bestseller list before the chronicle has even been released. But that’s not all. Remember when we predicted that eventually a lipstick would be inspired by and named after her? Sadly prescient. Keep reading »
There’s no doubt about it. Getting laid off sucks. What happens next is the stereotypical lifestyle of depression, daytime television and sweatpants. This may be fine for a week or two, but after a while you will start to go crazy and feel disgusting.
We would never say, “Hey! Awesome! You lost your job!” Though, we do believe you can get something out of this time of unemployment for yourself. And if you look on the bright side, believe it or not, you might find yourself looking a whole lot hotter. After the jump, check out our suggestions. Keep reading »
Queen Michelle at Kingdom of Style found this out-there rib cage necklace by way of Bitching & Junkfood. If exposed ribs and a bit of spine are your style, this is the jewelry for you. Made of perspex, the piece was created by London-based Spanish designer Patricia Nicolas. Anatomical correctness doesn’t come cheap, though. It’ll set you back £330.00, or around $525.
