10 Easy Ways To Inject Color Into Your Home

Now that I know you’re with me on the prettiness—but lack of livability—of white interiors, I figured it was high time for a post on just how to surround yourself with more color. Today, Apartment Therapy kicks off our list of little ways to inject color with their post on gorgeous, jewel-toned doorknobs. Who says the only doorknobs in your house have to be solid and brass (or, if you’re like me, solid and stainless steel and ugly)? I love the way the above knobs reflect the sunlight and are such an easy (and relatively cheap) change we can all make. (For a little bit of info on what to look for when you’re shopping for a vintage doorknob, click here.) And, after the jump, nine more easy ideas.

A Way Chic DIY Website—You Must Go

You must, must, must check out P.S.—I Made This…. Like, now. Stop reading and click on over. OK, so what it is: a new DIY website that gets you thinking of everyday things in different ways. Oh, and the DIY projects are seriously chic. These ain’t the frumpy how-tos that you sometimes see. Plus, bonus points, they also run little inspiration boards and photos of the process/materials needed (check out one above). And who doesn’t love a good inspiration board? Seriously, head on over there. [P.S.—I Made This...] Keep reading »

Haunted Attractions Across The Country

Watching a scary movie on Halloween is so lame. Instead, you should go out and mingle with the undead, ghosts, and ghouls as you get scared half to death at a haunted attraction. Today’s haunted houses, ships, mortuaries, and hayrides are nothing like the cheesy attractions at carnivals you might remember from your childhood. Nowadays, haunted attractions have benefited from the live talent that has left Hollywood as computers take their roles in horror movies. And they’ve also gone more high-tech with animatronics and movie-quality sets and sounds. [Reuters]

Clothes Crush: Japanese Brand Blank

Say hello to Blank, a Japanese import. I’m so into these accessories I found while browsing the “new” section at PixieMarket.com, that I’m literally drawing a blank. Except for maybe an internal dialogue that goes like this: Cute. Cute! Cuuuuuuute. Loving the non-traditional prints of soldiers and dinosaurs on tights, another dinosaur design on an umbrella that makes it look like a piece of vintage china, and a blue and white scarf featuring Greco-Roman motifs. Also available is the Batwing dress, a roomy black tunic, and a leather brooch in the shape of a blue ribbon prize. Freaking. Out. [PixieMarket.com] Keep reading »

New MTV Fashion Reality (Again?!) Show “Styl’d” Coming In November

Hold on to your Forever 21 tube tops and Kanye glasses, people—MTV has a new reality drama. Called “Styl’d,” it follows the lives of five fashion assistants at MMA (Who? Yeah, some agency we’ve never heard of either). Half docu-drama, half competition for a contract with the company, the show covers the oh-so difficult life of being a stylist. From the trailer alone, it looks tough. They fall in pools! They have to lug racks of clothes up canyon trails! They sleep with each other! (Apparently, there is such a thing as a straight guy stylist.)

“Styl’d” has all the makings of a one-season flop, but you never know. Seeing what’s happened to other MTV alums, this might be the next crop of your fave reality star/designers/singers/scandal makers.

“Styl’d” premieres Sunday, Nov. 1 at 10 p.m. Will you watch? [MTV] Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Manolo Blahnik Hates Celebrities

“I hate celebrities. All those pointless girls — I won’t name names, but you know who I mean. They are ‘famous.’ Ridiculous. I like women with style: actresses like Uma Thurman, icons like Audrey Hepburn. I like women with style to wear my shoes.”

—Shoe designer Manolo Blahnik on certain “celebrities.” He may not be willing to name names, but we are. Cough, LindsayParisJessica, cough. [Vogue UK] Keep reading »

Etsy Find Of The Week: TsuroBride Orwell Clutches

Most of the handbags we own are pretty utilitarian, meaning they blend in with most of our clothes and can hold our everyday essentials: keys, wallet, iPod, phone, lip balm, magazine, camera, apple, and work ID. In short, we lug around our life. So, the few times we get all gussied up, we either have to put our pared-down necessities in a cheap black clutch we bought back in college, or carry our huge everyday bag with our dressy dress. Now, however, we’ve found a fun bag that’ll even start conversations for us at awkward cocktail parties. TsuroBride‘s metallic leather animal-shaped clutches, $80 and up, are playful but not tacky, and we think they’d look as elegant and appropriate with a black-tie dress as with jeans and a T-shirt. And, if you like animals so much you don’t wear anything made from them, the designer can create a pleather version for you. [Etsy] Keep reading »
