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 »
I’m all for capes, whether they be plaid wool or nylon with a Superman logo, but this gray jersey version by Kirrily Johnston is a dead ringer for the bed sheet I wrap around myself when I have the flu. If that wasn’t bad enough, it’s inexplicably being modeled with a see-through shirt and camel toe. Suddenly, I don’t feel so good. [$80, Shopbop] Keep reading »
Sometimes bad clothes happen to good people. And even your favorite celebrity can occasionally step out of the house looking less than flawless.
So while we love these ladies and adore the designers, there were some moments this year when the fashion gods seemed to be punishing celebrities for their misdeeds.
