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 »

She’s already launched Lovely and Covet, but Sarah Jessica Parker isn’t ready to end her perfume rampage. Along with the newest “Sex and the City” movie, Carrie’s real life fashion maven created SJP, NYC. Because when you already have two perfumes, why not make a trio, right?
The newest scent will launch in February and is capitalizing on the obsession many have with Carrie Bradshaw and her bold fashion sense. “A large part of the inspiration was what I now understand to be people’s impressions of seeing Carrie Bradshaw walk down the street and what feelings that evokes for her and for them — a real sense of freedom and possibilities, a love for the city around her and, of course, fashion,” she said of the new perfume. But, after her last two classy fragrance bottles, the newest one is a little lacking in elegant design, no? How do you feel about the leopard and zebra print paired with bright blue? Would Carrie approve? [WWD] Keep reading »
Not only does Ford donate $20 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure when you test-drive one of their vehicles from now until Dec. 31, but the car company also sells cute apparel and accessories, with 100 percent of the net proceeds going to to the organization. The Warriors in Pink line includes non-cheesy T-shirts, bright flip-flops, an umbrella with a patterned underside, a Martha Stewart-approved stamping kit, and more. We’re especially fond of the beautiful Warrior Woven Scarf, which we can wear all year long in support of finding a cure for breast cancer. [$38, Warriors in Pink]
We’re giving away one basket filled with Warriors in Pink gear — including the woven scarf, tie, umbrella, flip-flops, T-shirt, stamping kit, and more — but you have to work if you want it. The best commenter for this coming week — from today, Friday, Oct. 16 through Thursday, Oct. 22 — will be awarded with the Warriors in Pink basket. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

The double helix is the perfect design when it comes to storing a great deal of DNA information. As people are always looking for new ways to maximize storage in our daily lives, it was about time someone came up with a way to combine both the double helix and the closet. Bucharest-based designer Irina Alexandru has put a twist on the traditional closet with her DNA-inspired clothes rack that is part of her saving space furniture collection. It allows for the maximum number of clothing hangers in the smallest amount of space. And although it will probably have to sit in a corner somewhere in the home, it will no doubt be an interesting conversation piece. [Gizmodo via Impact Lab] Keep reading »
When it comes to free crap, no one (save maybe celebrities) racks up more gratis perfume, CDs, tickets, books, gadgets, haircuts, trips, clothes, massages, bags, shoes and even home goods than magazine editors. Publicists and their clients are all too eager to send them free everything in hopes that maybe, just maybe, one of the many items piled up around their desks will stand out and land on one of the mag’s glossy pages. (And yes, while that sounds like a dream come true to many, after you get that much stuff for a few years, well, it all just becomes a bunch of stuff, ya know?) Until recently, bloggers didn’t have this “problem,” but since — shocker! — PR firms started to realize the potential of the internet to spread the word about the products they represent (after all, most sites have way bigger traffic than even top mag circulations), the more influential bloggers started getting free stuff, too.
Now, the FTC wants to make sure you know that the lipstick your favorite blogger is recommending was probably sent to her for free. And according to The New York Times, this is gonna rock the online fashion and beauty community, big time. But what does it mean to you? Keep reading »
Who says Olivia Newton John’s influence on fashion is over? Carmen’s sporty look is achieved by pairing a Zara top and American Apparel leggings, in an apparent nod to the cult classic “Let’s Get Physical” video. Work it out, girl! Keep reading »
The other day I was walking down the street wearing a shirt with a frilly collar and black skinny jeans, and, suddenly, it hit me! If I put on a cropped jacket, some red knee socks, and carried around a red cape or blanket, I could fight bulls like there’s no tomorrow. Now, if only I knew someone with a bull costume, my matador ensemble would truly be complete. Keep reading »
