Get your hot little hands on these new presidential candidate paper dolls, and you’ll be the envy of all your registered-voter friends. You know how most paper dolls start off in their undies? We’re wondering whether McCain and Obama are depicted wearing boxers or briefs in their doll version.
Each book costs $7.99 and features 32 pages of paper dolls and outfits printed in the U.S. on recycled paper. The Obama Paper Dolls book features Barack, Michelle, and their two daughters, along with various changes of clothes actually worn by the couple on the campaign trail. The McCain Paper Dolls book includes doll versions of John and Cindy with an assortment of outfits, including Cindy’s wedding dress, but doesn’t include John’s kids Meghan, Bridget, Doug, Jack, Jimmy, and Andy — maybe because his offspring are older, or because some are from earlier marriages or adopted, or because none of them is as cute as Malia and Natasha?

Remember how Amelia got all excited about the new Quiksilver women’s collection? Well, it’s finally available! The clothes make me want to go back-to-school shopping (back-to-work shopping? Fall wardrobe shopping? We need a new name for this). I can see myself wearing the first dress with just a vintage belt until it gets cooler, then layering with a shirt underneath and cardigan on top after the first frost. I am also into the Nora Tank. Would it be wrong to own a dress and a tank made from the same fabric?
P.S. I got a sneak preview of Quiksilver’s holiday collection yesterday, which comes out in September, and it is equally cute. Keep reading »
We’ve always wanted a chaise lounge (or a fainting sofa, if you’d like to be more dramatic like Scarlett O’Hara) because it just evokes a time when women were glamorous and bedrooms were boudoirs. We imagine lounging on this sofa while blogging on The Frisky and drinking a chilled glass of sauvignon blanc as we ponder where to make an appearance that night. Although this print is pretty bold, it could be tempered with pale pink or mint green walls. A white chandelier would also be a wonderful complement. [$579.99, ChaiseLounges.com] Keep reading »
Who needs celebrities for style inspiration, when you have these fashion plates walking the street? In our latest installment of this regular video feature, a guy with a taste for purple professes why labels do not matter. Keep reading »
We were excited to see photos of both Liv Tyler and Rihanna looking all hippie-chic with tie-dye clothes this week and are especially enamored by RiRi’s scarf. While hers is probably made by someone fancy, it can be easily reproduced on the cheap.
Just take a white American Apparel scarf, and wrap rubberbands around it at regular intervals. Then, follow the instructions on your box of dye. For more tie-dye inspiration, check out our slideshow of groovy clothes and accessories. Keep reading »
Lauren Conrad, from MTV’s The Hills unveiled her fall 2008 collection, le vie en rose, recently. I’m not really impressed because I’ve pretty much seen every piece somewhere else. She changed up the fabrics or added a little detail here and there, but the feel is no different from everything else being offered by trend-driven retailers. And the prices are ridiculous for what she’s selling ($58 leggings, seriously?). Now I’m not a proponent of stealing from a designer, but since LC borrowed heavily from the trend world, I decided to peruse the Web for less expensive versions of her clothing.
Lauren’s Inspiration Look: Zoe Dress, $230
Less Expensive Version: Halter Necklace Maxi Dress, $29.80

We don’t know anyone who actually uses the phrase, “My heart melts for you,” and the only time we actually see it is when we’re trying to find non-cheesy cards for anniversaries and Valentine’s Day and are stuck with sentiments like that. But if someone gave us these 14k gold Yayoi Forest earrings with a note saying, “You make my heart melt,” we have to admit, our heart would probably melt. [$320, Matter] Keep reading »

Candles have pros (flattering light, romantic) and cons (fire hazard, wax everywhere), and OXO’s Candela line combines the best of candles without the cons. The new Luau style is a portable lantern that stays lit up to 10 hours, can be dimmed, and never needs batteries. And since it doesn’t get hot, you don’t have to worry about your sheets catching on fire, unless you’re just that good. [$199.99, OXO.com] Keep reading »
Excluding the insane $225 price tag, we think this wifebeater with garter clips is pretty fantastic. It’s the perfect mix of something to wear in the bedroom that’s sexy, but also kind of tough. But then again, there must be a way to DIY this with a Hanes tank-top and some clips you can buy at a fabric store. [ShopBop.com] Keep reading »
