Make Your Own Hermès Paper Bracelet

Hermès is one of those intangibly expensive luxury brands that creates classic products you’ll always lust after but probably will never be able to afford. Perhaps the Parisian fashion house has decided to humor the less fortunate by putting out this free cutout design for its dog collar cuff bracelet (hey, pity gift or not, we’ll totally take it!). Download the PDF, cut out along the lines, then follow the step-by-step instructions for folding and gluing. The finished product is a completely believable Hermès replica. If you have a color printer, you can choose some of the snazzier designs, like an orange background with white print or a purple plaid motif. While we imagine your paper bracelet wouldn’t hold up as well as, say, a Kelly bag, you’d at least get an ephemeral taste of the brand, and a chance to practice your origami skills. If you have so much fun with your crafty cutout, you can also check out this hilarious Keyboard Cat project which has been circulating the interwebs of late.

The MidWasteland Gets To The Heart Of American Style

Street style — truly the reality TV of the fashion world — is simply delicious. We never get tired of checking out the cool New Yorkers on The Sartorialist and the insanely hip, young jet-setters at Lookbook.nu. Now we have a new one to add to our list, and it’s right in your backyard. While The MidWasteland definitely logs plenty of street style, it’s also a site devoted entirely to “fashion, lifestyle and culture in the Mid West.” Who says you have to live in Paris to be tremendously chic?

Glow In The Dark Toilet Paper: Convenient, Funny, Or Risky?

Going to the bathroom during a power outage or while you’re suffering from a major hangover just got a lot easier. You no longer need light to locate the toilet paper roll. Glow in the dark toilet paper shines like a beacon of good hygiene, but one question still remains: Is it really safe to have this tissue close to your bum? I’ve noticed colored toilet paper has become a thing of the past, and I always thought it was because dyes are unhealthy. However, one thing is for sure, glow in the dark toilet paper will be good for laughs –$8 laughs. A glowing trail of tissue on someone’s shoe would be that much funnier than a trail of regular white TP. [thumbs Up! via Impact Lab] Keep reading »

Marc Jacobs & Chairlift Do Bizarre, Low-Budget Videos For Saks


Chairlift is a band we love. Marc Jacobs is a designer we adore. Yet, we’re a bit puzzled by the promotional videos they worked on together for Saks Fifth Avenue. The videos feature the three members of Chairlift clad in Marc Jacobs’ fall collection, wandering around Williamsburg, Brooklyn like drugged-out hipsters. In each montage, set to Chairlift tunes, the sequences are clearly meant to look ironically low-budget with cheesy, porno-like close-ups on handbags and washed-out lighting. The effect comes off as completely bizarre. In the first, “Making an Entrance,” the gang wanders around a warehouse block doing yoga poses and attempting handstands. In “Drawing Attention,” the band heads to the roof of a building to look cool while drawing on the walls and taking pictures of each other to post on their blogs and MySpace pages. The craziest one, however, has to be “For the Love of Tacos,” above, where the Marc Jacobs-chic crowd goes to this, like, divey bodega for tacos that, of course, was totally rad before all the hipsters came and made it a party spot. Oh, the irony is killing us. Watch it and can we please discuss!?! [SaksFifthAvenue.com] Keep reading »

Topshop To Launch New Makeup Line!

Any Topshop news is good news in our book. The London import will be prettying up its wares with a new cosmetics line, due out next year, as it continues to become more of a department store/one-stop shop. No word yet on what the collection will be like, but British Elle says: “We’re guessing they could be tapping an international make-up artist to work with on the project.” We’d also expect some uber-cute packaging and, hopefully, very affordable price points. Should Sephora feel threatened? [Elle UK] Keep reading »

The Frisky Guidebook: The Holy City

Don’t let the old moniker fool you, what Charlestonians worship the most is a good party. At its busiest during wedding season and the summer months, this tourist town is worth visiting year-round with various festivals, galas, events and shows. The climate is often blessed with bouts of 70-degree weather in the dead of winter, ensuring that there is a party going on somewhere every single night of the week in any given month.

Celeb Designer Julia Stiles “Cares About The Environment More Than You Do”

I think we can all agree here that the whole celebrity-turned-designer thing has gotten a little out of control. Apparently, Stiles agrees, because she filmed this spoof on the practice using some very hot male models, green styles and some shants you’ll never forget. [Julia Stiles Styles] Keep reading »

Candle Quick Is An Infomercial Product We Could Actually Use

Here’s an infomercial product that scores points with the green team, and is actually quite resourceful. The Candle Quick allows you to melt down your nearly used-up candles and recycle the wax into one new candle. If you’re the type who finds it frustrating when your favorite votive still has product in it, but is too burned down to get a match near it, the Candle Quick would probably save you money in the long run by hanging on to the extras. Of course, if you have a bunch of different candles on your hands, you might end up with a weird-smelling witches’ brew of Juniper-Vanilla-Sea Breeze-Apple-Crisp as your end product. Mmmm… [$24.98, TaylorGifts.com] Keep reading »

Lauren Bush Wants To Feed The World

OK, jaded fashion lovers, listen up. We’re all tired of hearing about designers who donate two percent of the proceeds from a random T-shirt to some backwater pet charity in Papua New Guinea. (Note to all publicists: We see right through you.) But Kenneth Cole and Lauren Bush have collaborated on a Feed Health backpack that’s actually going to make a difference. For each of the $125 bags sold, another one will be donated to a health care worker in sub-Saharan Africa. The bag will be filled with medical supplies, like syringes and bandages. Condoms. A cell phone. Oh, and a scale to weigh newborn babies. Starting tomorrow, the backpack will be available at select Kenneth Cole stores and online here (with free shipping!). So, no more hoarding your pennies. Besides, you can’t even buy Givenchy on sale for that price! Keep reading »

H&M Gets The (Winter) Party Started

We know summer isn’t over yet, but the style masterminds over at H&M are already thinking ahead when it comes to our holiday party wardrobes. They’ve debuted looks from the Fall/Winter 2009 Party collection and it looks pretty festive to us. The line ranges from outerwear and dresses to shoes and bracelets, and overall, the line is pretty eclectic since no two items seemed to be designed with the same theme in mind. But one thing ties the whole collection together: boldness. You see it in the uber-chunky necklaces, the sexy structured dresses and champagne-colored faux fur jackets. Every piece makes a strong statement, and we hear it loud and clear: We are young, we are chic, and we don’t care about hypothermia. [Stylistic] Keep reading »
