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 »

Quick Pic: Some Art With Your Coffee?

Sometimes we doodle on our coffee cups during boring meetings, too. (But never came up with anything this awesome.) Artist Boey creates intricate illustrations on styrofoam cups, and many are for sale, too. [Flickr] Keep reading »

Loving This Chanel Pre-Fall 2009 Cuff

Leave it to Chanel to design an item that’s at once classic and quirky. Case in point: this Russian doll-inspired bangle from their pre-fall 2009 collection. The bracelet is made from enamel and wood and features an iconic Imperial Russian symbol, the Matriochka doll. We love the combination of the bright red lips plus ubiquitous logo. It will set you back a few hundred dollars, but it looks sort of worth it, no? Also, between this and Guerlain’s new makeup collection, we totally smell an all things Russian trend coming on.

Quick Pic: Is That Victoria Beckham?

Models Heidi Mount and Finbar McGuiness did their best Victoria Beckham impressions (while wearing clothing of her design) for the September issue of V. They definitely made us look twice. [V Magazine] Keep reading »

1971 Reiss Hearts Women Who Rock

London label Reiss is launching 1971, a secondary line of thigh-zippering jeans, shearling jackets, and studded boots inspired by women who rock. With denim names like the “Patti” after Patti Smith, the collection is an amalgam of everything an off-duty Kristen Stewart type would want to wear. Provided, of course, she decided to clean up a smidge. Check out the whole collection here. Keep reading »

Could Ashley Olsen Ever “Quit” Fashion?

Are the Olsens experiencing “fashion fatigue”? Yesterday, we saw how Mary-Kate has been looking more hobo than boho. Now Ashley, the more serious style maven of the two, admits she may be looking to leave the fashion world and her luxury line, The Row. According to HollyScoop.com, Ashley recently stated:

“(In the fashion world) everyone is just really looking out for themselves. I don’t know if I’ll be designing this collection forever. A couple of years from now, I’m sure I’ll want to do something else, and I’m not going to shy away from that. What if I just want to be an artist, or if I want to go back to acting? Which is not in the cards, but what if I wanted to do that?”

Sounds to us like Ashley may just be a bit worn down, and we don’t blame her! (Managing a clothing label, all the other Olsen properties, and heaving around a venti Starbucks latte 24/7 must be exhausting.) But let’s face facts—even if Ashley were to “leave” fashion, she’d have to fall off the face of the earth. Ashley is already too great a style icon to stop influencing trends, even if she stops producing the clothes you can buy to rock those trends. [Wait, do you guys consider Ashley a "style icon"? Personally, I do not, but maybe that's just me? -- Editor] [HollyScoop.com]
