It’s really hard to figure out what to wear during the spring months, when the weather can turn from nice to nasty on a dime. That’s why we love Wolf & Harrison’s French Terry Cape, which allows you to brave the elements in a sweet and stylish way. The 100 percent organic cotton cape fills a weird weather niche, but we’re betting you’re going to want to wear it year round — wolf, sheep or whatever you are.
After Tuesday night’s “What Not to Wear” episode, featuring yours truly and an incredible cast of friends of family, I’ve gotten a few questions thrown my way. People have wondered what became of the infamous tiger sweater, lovingly named Raoul. Well, first, Stacy had her way with him. Yes, I did give it up. And no, I don’t miss it one bit. And now onto some other business… Keep reading »
Where do we even start with Allie? First, she founded the blog The Campus Style. And now she helps run the quarterly magazine Young Foxy and Free and works at Scoutmob, the site for all things awesomely local. “I got an internship at Scoutmob and was hired in the fall as the assistant editor,” she explains. “I get to explore the city and find nifty and noteworthy locals and events.

Long before Latisse or any of the other eyelash lengthening potions were developed, Elizabeth Taylor rocked extra-long, extra-thick lashes. And now, just weeks after her death, the truth behind her lush lashes has been revealed: Taylor was born with distichiasis–or double rows of eyelashes. Thankfully, the mutation had few negative effects — though in some cases it can cause problems if the lashes begin to grow inward — but it did make some assume she was wearing makeup when she was not. Roddy McDowell, her co-star in “Lassie Come Home,” recalled:
“On her first day of filming, they took one look at her and said: ‘Get that girl off the set – she has too much eye make-up on, too much mascara’ … Guess what? They learned that she had no mascara on. She has a double set of eyelashes. Now, who has double eyelashes except a girl who was absolutely born to be on the big screen?”

Personal pet peeve: when a stranger on the street tells me to cheer up and “smile!” because I’m not walking around town with a s**t-eating grin on my face. Usually I actually do scowl and don’t respond, or if I’m in a truly bad mood, I’ll retort that only looney bin escapees walk around smiling to themselves and at leering strangers. But going forward, I am going to calmly explain that I suffer from CBF and then they will feel bad for having insulted someone with a condition that they cannot help. Ha! [Kris Atomic] Keep reading »
In celebration of the bonds between friends and loved ones, Joelle by Marc Joseph has created a collection of whimsical silver trinkets. We’re quite smitten with the “I Heart U” stud earrings because of the simple yet chic design and message. The carved letters provide an strong contrast to the mirror finish of the earrings. The posts are 10 kt. white gold, so those with sensitive skin don’t have to worry about an allergic reaction. These Joelle studs are the perfect gift for your loved ones, but you might just want to keep a pair for yourself!
