Nick Olsen, former Domino blogger and an assistant designer to the amazingness that is Miles Redd, came up with a list of first-timer decorating mistakes forThe Washington Post. Now, since I’ve painted and re-done my bedroom no less than four times over the past year, I considered myself to be over that beginner mistake hump. READ MORE »

Aretha may have crooned about a chain of fools, but she probably didn’t consider what a love fool one would become after seeing Vivier’s chain-print tote bags. Made from French linen and hemp handles, each purse features a printed navy chainlink design, a thoughtful detail that transforms the concept of totes from casual to chic. READ MORE »

Hipsters would call these concept bindis “art.” We would call them “ugly.” To begin with, we’re pretty sure the whole bindi/sari/Gwen Stefani thing happened in 1999 and stayed there. Second, how exactly, do you expect to be taken seriously when you have hair, cloth, or stones stuck to your face? The sets of body stickers… READ MORE »

There’s lots of literary esteem to be held for classic coming-of-age stories like Little Women or Jane Eyre. And while The Babysitters Club and Sweet Valley High may not qualify for a place in the cannon of American literature, there’s no denying the iconic impact of the YA series you grew up with. If you… READ MORE »

Someone get Juno off her hamburger phone! A hamburger purse with all the fixings is what the cool kids are wearing these days. But just in case the Whopper is not your junk food of choice, Garudio Studiage in the U.K. also sells savory chicken leg and hot dog handbags, each with a zipper and… READ MORE »

MTV’s new “TRL”-esque show, “The Alexa Chung Show,” started this week and its VJ’s style has already caught our eye. Good thing, then, that MTV.com will be detailing just what Alexa wore every episode online, with links to where the exact and similar items can be purchased. And look! She’s even rocking Catherine’s favorite nail… READ MORE »

Hilarious nostalgic blog alert! “What Claudia Wore” discusses in great detail the fashion choices of Claudia Kishi, as depicted on the covers of one of my favorite young adult book series of all time, The Babysitters Club. Kim, the blogger behind “What Claudia Wore,” is totally obsessed with Claudia’s style, as I think all of… READ MORE »

I love nail polish that’s a little different from the usual pinks and reds, and last fall, I tried to make green nail polish happen. I painted my nails a lovely toad color and hoped others would follow suit — or at least appreciate the color. Our Emily was the only person who was fond… READ MORE »

Marc Jacobs’ new ad campaign is a bit mystifying. Why, we’d like to know, is model Natasa Vojnovik hanging by her ankles from a window? We’re all for death-defying stunts, but this one doesn’t seem to have much of a purpose. You can’t see the clothes, you can’t see her face, and I’m not entirely… READ MORE »

And they say going to the whorehouse is a crime. Well if that’s the case, we’re set to become criminals, especially after seeing U.K. lingerie line, Bordelle. With a super-luxe meets fetishist vibe, the collection of corsets, supermini dresses, and bras features banded strips of material (ok, throw a little bondage in there, too). We’re… READ MORE »

It has been raining on and off in New York for weeks and we are sick of it. It’s easy to prepare for cold weather rain: wellies, a water repellent jacket, massive black umbrella, and, for the really dedicated, a hat. But the task gets considerably more difficult when the pelting rain is combined with… READ MORE »

The next time I get a boo-boo I’m not putting on a neutral Band-Aid, which won’t match my skin anyway. I’m going to stick on a black leather Band-Aid from Scott Amron to toughen up my girly appearance. The bandages also come in a Louis Vuitton logo print. I doubt the fashion house has sanctioned… READ MORE »
