Crave: Crazylibellule And The Poppies Les Garçonnes Perfume (Win It!)

We’re pretty low-maintenance in the perfume department and tend not to bother with spritzing our pressure points before running out the door in the morning. But we like to smell nice, so Crazylibellule and the Poppies’ CrazySticks solid perfume sticks have found a home in our handbags. The sticks, which look like chunky ChapStick tubes, contain light and lovely fragrances that we can rub on whenever the mood strikes us. We’re especially big fans of the new Les Garçonnes collection. Each of the seven scents honors a lovely woman from the ’20s, one of the most glamorous decades ever, in our opinion. It’s too bad these perfumes weren’t around back then; the flappers would have appreciated the convenient, portable scents while painting the town red! [$18, Amazon.com] Keep reading »

Run, Do Not Walk, To Norma Kamali’s eBay Store

This morning we trekked through the rain to the Apple store in downtown NYC where we were treated to quite the unusual fashion show. In the spirit of “the democratization of fashion,” instead of hustling past bodyguards and navigating seat assignments there was no insane crowd as usual — even though I had an invite, no one checked and it seemed pretty open to whomever happened to be laptop shopping at 11 a.m. Seating was first come, first served (a practice which if applied to all shows would mean that they would actually start on time and not 30-45 minutes late, just sayin’). Anyway, Miss Kamali herself took the stage dressed in one of her signature jumpsuits and black cat glasses and chatted away with tech guru Omar Wasow about how technology has impacted the fashion business.

Bridal Shop Creates “Twilight” Prom Dresses. We Are Afraid.

Much has been made of the blue prom dress Bella Swan (or Kristen Stewart, depending on how much you blur fantasy and reality) wears in the “Twilight” movie. You may have heard of it. Countless teen magazines and websites have scoured the market looking for similar styles, but nothing quite compares to this rendition spotted at a Port Angeles, Washington bridal shop. Owner Belva Bodey claims she was inspired to cop the design because in the movie Bella shops in their town for a book. Call it a leap of faith, but she believes Bella would have bought her prom dress from the same town. Talk about mixing up your fact and fiction. Yeeps! Incidentally, the green dress pictured is one Bella supposedly wears to her birthday party in “New Moon.” Once again, rabid “Twilight” fans scare us more than actual vampires do! Keep reading »

Blue Lips At Doo.Ri: Would You Try The Hypothermic Look?

The clothes at the Doo.Ri show last night were mostly gray, accented with a couple blue and peach pieces. The makeup matched, though in a rather unexpected way. Makeup artist Tom Pecheux made the models’ lips blue. Check it out! Keep reading »

The New Domino Magazine?

It’s called Lonny magazine and as of late last night (or early this morning, rather), it’s now got a launch date—October 1st. For those not obsessed with every move ex-Domino staffers make, Lonny is home decor/design mag in the vein of Domino (it’s even got a former Domino editor on its inagural cover, look!) that’s being pulled together by Michelle Adams, the woman behind Rubie Green textiles, and a former Domino assistant herself! It’s set to be online only—PDF versions, perhaps? So get pumped, Domino lovers. Interiors coverage is set to get fun again! OMFG. [MA Belle] Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: Homage To Mary Travers’ Style

Folk legend Mary Travers of Peter, Paul and Mary may have been a revolutionary artist but she always managed to make fighting the Man look pretty damn good, too. She passed away yesterday after an ongoing battle with leukemia, but her particular brand of laid-back cool lives on. Keep reading »

Natalie Portman Demonstrates How Matchy-Matchy Works

Normally, I am fiercely against anything too matchy-matchy—i.e., exactly color-coordinated belt and bag, or lips and shoes, or headband and belt and bag. It just looks too trying-too-hard and robot-esque. I actually actively try not to match my beauty touches or accessories—and while I’m not a Kate Moss mix master, I do spend some time contemplating it all. Yet, when I spied Natalie Portman‘s color-coordinated nails and lips I actually didn’t hate the combo. Here’s why it works. Keep reading »

Finally, Spam Mail Is Good For Something

How many times a day do you automatically delete emails with subjects like “Get big penis now offer pump for sex only $12.99!” (Or maybe you don’t delete them? We don’t know!) At least there’s one person out there finding a comical use for spam emails that would otherwise be a nuisance—Floyd Hayes, a graphic designer who decided to pimp out the subject lines in sex spam emails on colorful buttons. His line, called SeksiSpam, features pins emblazoned with the hilarious phrases that come to his inbox: “Riding seksi bich”; “Nice graet leegs”; “Working on nipless.” Keep reading »

Dubai Company Creates Cosmetic Line For Muslim Women

There are many reasons why women look for cosmetics without this or that—maybe they’re vegans or maybe they’re very eco-conscious. Another reason? Religion.

For Muslim women, there’s apparently been a gap in the market, due to the lack of non-halal makeup. (Halal refers to the law forbidding, among other things, certain pork and animal products and alcohol.) That said, many Arab women already wear makeup — lots of it. We’re guessing that, perhaps, they’re not all so strict about conforming to Islamic law. Keep reading »
