Warriors In Pink Warrior Woven Scarf (Win It!)

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!

Double Your Storage Space With The Double Helix Clothes Rack

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 »

Who Do You Trust More: Beauty/Fashion Mag Editors Or Bloggers?

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 »

The Frisky’s Chic On The Street: Rome Oct. 16th 2009

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 Halloween Inspiration Board: Matador

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 »

Bebe Hires The Kardashian Sisters. Um, Yay?

Though hard to admit, it seems the Kardashian sisters do know something about fashion and running a business. After all, their store, Dash, has taken off — but are they ready to design? While we’re not quite sure, Bebe, apparently, has full faith in the girls and has hired Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney to create a collection for spring. “This is honestly a dream come true!” Kim wrote on her site. “We have always loved fashion and have wanted to design for such a long time and now we finally are!”

No word yet on just what their line will look like, but we wonder: Will you buy Kardashian designs at Bebe? [Er, seems like that'll be a whole lotta "sexy," and yes, those quotation marks indicate irony. -- Editor] [People]

Move Over Stilettos: The Kitten Heel Is Walking All Over You

We’ve seen this one coming for a long time, and, between Michelle Obama and Carla Bruni Sarkozy, it’s been on the fashion radar a lot lately. Now, the not-new-but-new-now heel height has been spotted on Italian Vogue editor Giovanna Battaglia (uh, such a huge style crush on her!), above, and loads of runways for spring 2010—Marni, Missoni, Louis Vuitton. So, what are your thoughts? Are you a total four-inch heels or flats girl? Or do you really love the mid-height heels? I think to make a kitten heel feel non-corporate, you need a really wild pair—and a non-business-y getup. [Refinery29] Keep reading »

Opening Ceremony’s “Where The Wild Things Are” Keds—A Rip-Off?

Class, please observe:

Up top: Opening Ceremony’s limited-edition “Where The Wild Things Are” Keds, featuring zebra stripes or leopard prints on pony hair. They run for $125 a pair. [Style.com]

Down below: Some pre-existing Keds that are awfully similar (no fancy pony hair or anything) and will only set you back $60. [Zebra print, Zazzle; Leopard print, Zazzle]

So, students, is this a total rip-off? Please discuss. And yes, this will be on the final (receipt, that is). Keep reading »

My, That’s A Slutty Lamp You’ve Got On Your Table

We’ve seen humans as furniture before, but Atelier Van Lieshout‘s latest exhibition of work at the Carpenters Workshop Gallery in London puts fiberglass figures into some compromising positions. According to a press release, AVL has based sculptural works on the human body since the ’80s.”With a fascination bordering on obsession with the human body, this collection continues to explore new shapes and forms influenced by the human figure with all imperfections and complexities carefully manipulated to create functional sculptures that are at once abstract but also familiar.” Pretty hoity-toity commentary, considering the lamp above looks like a person slobbing a giant knob.

What A Doll: Pupa Kokeshi Eyeshadows

Cue chorus of girlish squeals (or, um, not). But don’t these Pupa Kokeshi makeup dolls kind of remind you of your childhood? This brings us back to the days of princess-packaged blush, Polly Pockets, and all the other pretty things (or necessities) you’d carry around in your purse. The palm-sized dolls open up to reveal a range of fun colors to put on your face. Try swiping an eyeshadow in dark purple, pastel lavender, midnight blue, or charcoal.

Here’s our official plea to makeup companies to produce more lighthearted cosmetics! [Spoiled Brat] Keep reading »
