Breaking: Willow Smith now has a bowl cut. And despite it looking kind of dorky … it’s kind of dorky in an awesome way. We swear: Willow’s at a point where anything this girl touches turns to gold. (Or at least, A+ hairstyles.) One question. How’s she gonna whip her hair now? Maybe this just goes to show that you don’t need to be a long-haired lady to embrace the hair-whipping mentality.
What do you think of Willow’s new ‘do? Cute? Edgy? Or oh dear? [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »
Purple is a color loaded with meaning. At one time symbolizing royalty, it’s also come to be known as one of the colors representing LGBT groups and orgs. It’s more recently taken on a newer political meaning in America—that of bipartisanship. NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg has taken to wearing a purple tie at public events. He says, “Purple is made of two colors, red and blue. Red and blue seem to have some political significance.” Glad to see Mr. Bloomberg has a basic understanding of politics and also passed third grade art. Keep reading »
The “Jersey Shore” cast members sure are doing a bang-up business these days. Book deals (“book deals”), workout videos, and now … the official Snooki house slippers. Miss Polizzi’s fashion sense was quick to be capitalized on, so we’re actually surprised that it took this long to make a dollar off of her famous slippers. She now has a website (“My Official Slipper Site,” aka SnookiSlippers.com) and is selling two varieties of the ginormous shoes—a leopard print and a pink and white sneaker motif, both of which come with a classy lace-up detail. This is actually a really smart branding move that could make Snooks a nice income. We’re sure there’s a slew of teenage girls out there just dying to get all dolled up for their next Snooki slumber party. (Sigh.) [Snooki Slippers via BlackBook] Keep reading »
Gardening is cyclical, so when fashion mirrors nature, shouldn’t it too follow in a cycle? That’s the theme behind this awesome Etsy find—a rosette necklace made from recycled T-shirts by CreativityIsMessy. Best of all, it’s made to order, so choose your rose color (lavender, pink, and charcoal are some nice options) and then select a hue for the ribbon. Here’s the kind of piece we’d totally be into DIY-ing ourselves if we had the time … but since the price is pretty affordable at $28, we’d probably let someone else do the job (a way better one at that).
Is it just us, or are Uggs experiencing some form of horrible mutation? After the original came the colors—pink, purple, and the like. Then there was Jimmy Choo‘s studded and fringed monstrosity. And now this: sparkly, sequined Ugg boots. People, stop the Uggsanity! [High Snobette] Keep reading »
I love nail art—been doing it for years, um, been getting it DID for years. I had the raddest, weirdest nails waaaaay before Willow Smith was on the scene. Swarovski crystals, 3D designs that were painstakingly done one petal at a time, multi-color hand-painted scenes, etc — all done by my amazing nail artist Thomas. I had it all. Or so I thought! Enter the totally DIY-able nail marbling technique. Keep reading »
