A fancy feline is the height of sophistication when entertaining, which is whey we’re bummed these purr-ty ties for cats have sold out on Etsy.
“This kitty does NOT look happy,” our sister wrote in an email. That’s because the tie isn’t tied in a proper Windsor knot. Duh. Keep reading »
Beach weddings, much like daytime weddings, are not a time to go crazy with the makeup and prom-like hair. Keep it lovely by working the bright eyes and clean-looking skin. And, because you’re going to look naturally-pretty instead of hooker-hot, pick a dress with a fun neckline or a statement necklace to add a little something-something to your look. Keep reading »

Hearts are so last year. I love the look of this delicate envelope charm, which you can customize with an engraved message on the back. Mine would say simply, “LU,” which is my dog’s nickname, not a wack version of “Love U,” FYI. [$75, LOOKAjewelry, Etsy] Keep reading »
It’s easy to be cynical about attending a wedding, and unfortunately the recession has only made it easier to begrudge those who bask in true love’s light and make us schlep out to some random country club in the middle of nowhere. I actually love weddings, but celebrating the chubby-cheeked cupid is expensive. The outfits, the gift, the travel — it all adds up! Before you start getting all anti-wedding, here are seven easy ways to save this season. Keep reading »
Sometimes, we’ll go out on the town only to spend much of the night pushing our way through piles of people in an attempt to reach the bar. Then, when we finally get the bartender’s attention, we can’t even think of a drink we want him to make. For a change of pace, we’re going to stay at home a little more often and, over the course of the year, test the drink recipes in Food & Wine Cocktails 2009. With concoctions like a five-spice margarita and something called the “Big O” designed by top mixologists, plus party food recipes, we won’t need to leave our apartment to have a good time. Well, except to stock the bar. [$10.17, Amazon]
We’re giving away three copies of Food & Wine Cocktails ’09, but you have to work if you want to know how to make delicious drinks. The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, June 5 through Thursday, June 11 — will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

The genre has simply become less competitive over the years since the pool of artists in the category is relatively tiny. But let’s not forget about polka entirely, okay? While polka music is a little hokey, the costumes associated with it are inspiring. Keep reading »
Clear is the new black according to fashion designer Kei Kagami, who just debuted this “water dress” at the Arnhem Biennale. The exhibit has taken over the center of Arnhem (in the Netherlands) for a month to display works by dozens of fashion labels including Lanvin, Hussein Chalayan, Jil Sander, Rick Owens, Martin Margiela and Viktor & Rolf. The theme of the exhibition is “shape,” which Kagami chose to interpret by using an amorphous material, water, to create a dress form. Splashing! [A Shaded View on Fashion] Keep reading »
