You may be wondering: What are “ninkles” and do I have them? Good question, “ninkles,” not to be confused with “cankles” (fat ankles), are unsightly wrinkles on your knees. If you suffer from this affliction, short skirts are, apparently, totally out of the question this spring. So, what do you do to tame those “ninkles”? Diet? Knee exercises? “Ninkle” cream? Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do, unless you plan to get a knee lift. British Vogue editor, Emily Sheffield, recommends a mid-length skirt with a little bit of stretch “so you can actually walk” to conceal the problem. Thank you. Noted. Now, back to worrying about my “sagel,” my affectionate term for that bagel-shaped patch of fat on my stomach. [NY Mag] Keep reading »
This Topshop tasseled maxi skirt takes the fringe trend to, well, the max. With its tie-dye top section, I wouldn’t be surprised to find it in our Coachella style roundup, but that’s about the only situation I can imagine wearing it. We asked the Man Panel what they thought of this uber-bohemian look, and here’s what they had to say… Keep reading »
The ’70s are back in a big way this spring and summer and this cute little sundress from Charlotte Ronson’s I Heart Ronson line for J.C. Penney has all the elements. The multi-colored chevron stripes on top give the illusion of a narrow(er) waist, while the vertical stripes on the floaty skirt elongate. We love the vintage vibe of the braided straps and brown belt, plus, we’ve never been able to resist a frock with pockets. Um, and it’s on sale? Consider us sold.
Damn you, Helen Mirren, for looking so fine. Mirren proves that wearing leopard-print after 50 doesn’t have to look like some tickety-tackity cougartown tragedy. Here she is at the London premiere of “Arthur” in an animal-print Dolce & Gabbana gown and leather jacket, and it works. How you do sexy so well, lady? [W.E.R.Q] Keep reading »
Evan Yurman, the jewelry designer behind the much-anticipated David Yurman Bridal Collection, says wedding jewelry should speak to the wearer. And most of the pieces in the bridal collection spoke to me when I stopped by the DY townhouse in Manhattan for a preview. The only problem was that I’m nowhere near accepting a proposal or offering one. But a girl can enjoy diamonds nonetheless… Keep reading »
I’m not into polishes that sparkle and shine. My nails are super short (sorry, I’m terrible and I bite ‘em), so I want a polish that minimizes, rather than emphasizes, the damage I’ve done. Enter designer Jason Wu’s collaboration with CND nail polish. He’s created four matte-ish colors ranging from a shocking glam red to a muted neutral purple (it’s called Brigitte, of course!). When I applied, the nail polish dried flattish, but had a neat dimensionality that made it appear unique in different lights. When you want polish that lets you shine, Wu’s where it’s at.
