For the most part, raw crystal jewelry can stay where it is now: in between the new age-y mystical books and bundles of sage. And no, we don’t need any smoky quartz to balance our sex chakras, thank you very much. What we do need, however, are some of the goods from Zulasurfing’s Etsy shop. And while the accessories there are made from crystals, there’s nothing corny about them. Keep reading »
Do you wax away your lady ‘stache? Well, that is a mistake my friend, because you could be a superstar on WomenWithMustaches.com. Do not deny the world your womanly Tom Selleck anymore! You too can become an internet sensation by submitting your own fuzzy foto to the site, not to mention save some dough on pricey trips to the salon. And girl, with one hot shot, you could ask the whole world, “Wanna go for a mustache ride?” [via Trend Hunter]
In the last 12 to 24 hours or so, two celebs have appeared on separate red carpets with two very similar deep side parts, and I sort of love it—check out Milla and Sienna, above. This marks a clear shift: For, well forever it seems, every celeb rocked the middle part (think Demi Moore and Jennifer Aniston to name a few). But this new development is actually great for 80 percent of the population with hair on their heads. Side-parts are way more flattering on way more people and I for one, love the romantic feeling the look invokes. Wanna know how to get one? Read on… Keep reading »
Camille from “NYC Prep” may not get accepted next year into her dream school, Harvard, but if she doesn’t mind donning menswear — and something tells me she probably doesn’t — she now has the chance to dress the part a little more easily. That’s because the Ivy League school has curiously launched a new men’s fashion line called Harvard Yard. Harvard and fashion? It’s not exactly the modern marriage we might expect, but nevertheless, the university has signed a ten-year licensing deal with a clothing manufacturer for a line of preppy men’s apparel. Inspired by photos of students lounging in Harvard Yard in the ’60s, the line includes “short-sleeve plaid shirts, Liberty print wovens, seersucker shorts, regimental stripes, sporty knits, patterned jackets and fancy pants — all in a contemporary, tapered fit.” Prices range from $165 for pants to $495 for sports coats.

Decisions, decisions. We love how voluptuous and sexy curls look (a la Amy Adams, here at the New York premiere of “Julie and Julia“), but we’re also suckers for slick, straight hair. For these particular events, her hair guru, Matrix celeb stylist Mark Townsend, made the style decisions above based on the clothes and um, just a “feeling.” For the NYC event, he wanted her hair to look modern and glamorous to match her ritzy Carolina Herrera gown. “I’ve been very inspired lately by hairstyles from the ’80s with lots of volume,” he said. But for the more slick look in LA, he was inspired by “beauty shots from the ’80s that I’ve collected over the years, very Carol Alt,” he says, referring to the supermodel who reigned supreme back in the day.
We’re torn. Which do you prefer?
Oh, and P.S. We just happen to have a few bottles of the Biolage Shine Endure Spritz that Mark used on Amy laying around the office. It’s good for shine, protection and both straight and curly hair. It costs about $14 in stores, but we’re willing to part with three bottles for our favorite comments regarding woman’s greatest mystery, that very serious conundrum: curly or straight? Keep reading »
It can be a lot of work justifying new purchases when we’re totally broke and probably didn’t need that fifth tutu skirt if we’re being totally honest. So before you buy yet another black dress, consider a purchase you wouldn’t have to feel guilty about. DKNY‘s new charity tee shirt is the perfect, cute loophole in your no-shopping contract!
The simple black-and-white illustrated tee costs $65 and funds benefit one of five New York charities. Best part is that you get to pick which charity you want the money to go to. Pick one up at DKNY stores or online and bask in the glow of your new shirt and the karma points you’ll get for buying it. [Elle UK] Keep reading »
If you’re a big fan of Lonnie Rashid Lynn Jr., aka Common, and like so many chicks we know, prefer to wear men’s cologne because so much girly perfume smells like fruit and pink flowers, then listen up: To celebrate his new Diesel fragrance, the rapper is holding a private concert for his friends and celebrity fans at NYC venue Capitale, which is small enough to ensure that onlookers just might get close enough to literally smell him. But what’s a girl who’s not a close personal friend or “celebrity fan” to do? Starting August 10, the first 500 people to make a Diesel Only The Brave purchase of $117.50 or more at Macy’s in Herald Square (and other select NYC locations) will receive two general admission tickets to this exclusive concert. Normally we’re not the hugest celebrity fragrance fans around here but you might be surprised at Common’s complex combo: With top notes of lemon blossom, mandarin and coriander leaves; a heart of labdanum, black rose and lavender; and a dry down of amber, tolu and ebony woods, this stuff actually smells really good. So there. Keep reading »
As the ultimate makeup junkie, I have a tough time saying no to a new shadow shade, lip color, or nail hue… and it certainly shows in my inability to organize it all. But now that my makeup collection has successfully taken over every drawer, zip case, surface, nook and cranny of my humble abode, I’m starting to resist the urge to buy more and more pots of colors that I’ll probably never use more than once. Instead, I’ve narrowed my focus to scouting out the newest and best priming products that can help make the most of the colors I already have for easy application, flawless appearance, and maximum smudge-free wear all day long.

Naturally, just because you’re about to be a mom doesn’t necessarily mean you want to look like one. But have you had a chance–or a reason for that matter–to look at the maternity clothes options out there? You’ll realize quickly that chic maternity picks are just as hard to come by as plus-sized ones can be. Then Nicole Richie got pregnant! The socialite-turned-reality-star-turned-designer/model has upped the ante for pregnant fashionistas everywhere by designing and starring as the face of her first maternity line, which will be sold at A Pea in the Pod stores. In an interview with People, the pregnant mom (her first child, Harlow, is 19 months old) said carrying a child can totally derail your style. More looks, after the jump! Keep reading »
