When Rachel Bilson was out of town, her LA home was burgled. The thief raided the star’s closet, taking designer clothes, shoes, handbags, and jewelry, including items given to her by her grandmother. While the loss of her Chanel collection unfortunate, it’s the stealing of the jewelry that Rachel’s grandmother gave her that’s most heart-wrenching; it can’t be replaced.
That got me thinking: What clothing or accessory would I be most upset about if it got stolen? It would probably be a bracelet my parents gave me. While the item could be replaed, I would always know that it wasn’t the one they gave me. Keep reading »
Sometimes the universe works in mysterious ways. It gives, it takes, and everything levels out somehow. For example, Courtney Love goes on Twitter. Then Ashton Kutcher. Then Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson. And we ask ourselves: Why are we reading this thing again?
Now, Bruno, Sacha Baron Cohen’s fashion reporter character from “Bruno,” which debuts July 10, has started tweeting. Suddenly, we can bear to read TweetDeck again.
A few of his tweets really aren’t printable on a blog our moms read. But ze rest are just brilliant … Keep reading »
Oh, Photoshop. How could bloggers exist without you? Some poor soul at Buzzfeed had the task of Photoshopping “Jon & Kate Plus 8″ matriarch Kate Gosselin’s reverse mullet onto 15 other celebs. Everyone from Suri Cruise to Shaq gets the Gosselin hair treatment. Just in case you were wondering if Tyra is still fierce with a porcupine ‘do … [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
Handbags haven’t gone out of style, but retailers keep coming up with different ways for women to transport their money and other essentials. We’ve already deemed the Cap-Sac a fashion don’t. But the Racktrap is a whole different story. It is a small, flat wallet that fits perfectly inside your bra regardless of your cup size. It easily and safely holds money, ID, and credit cards. Obviously, it was made for the woman-on-the-go who likes to have her hands free. The Special Edition Gold Racktrap costs $7.95, but you can purchase a four-pack to “match any outfit” for $19.95. Now all we have to figure out is how to discreetly dig around in our bra when we’re at the checkout counter. [She Finds]
For great bras that can hold you and your Racktrap, check out SheFinds’ Bra Guide.

As soon as I put on a pair of four-inch heels, I long for the moment when I can take them off. It’s not that they’re that painful, but I feel immense guilt about treating my poor little feet so badly. My sky-high pumps can’t possibly be good for them … or can they?

You don’t need to get sandy to experience the beach. Lilly Pulitzer’s new Beachy fragrance smells as yummy the real thing. If you’re a fan of watermelon, citrus, and jasmine blossoms, you’re bound to become a fan. The delicious scent will set you back $48, but the delicate blue bottle it comes in (and adorable mini scarf wrapped around it) makes it so worth it. So, give yourself a spritz or two and escape to the shore. [$48, Sephora] Keep reading »
Our usual “Gossip Girl” recapper, Sara B., is off this week, so Simcha stepped in to analyze the season finale’s style.
Finale, it has happened to me! Last night was the last episode of “Gossip Girl.” As if the writing hasn’t already gotten patchy (honestly, if “GG” was hackable, why wouldn’t you delete the rumors you didn’t want published?), now they’re heading into the dreaded college years. Sigh. On the upside, the death knell was the hot jam “Zero” by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. But while the teens may have graduated high school, there were some major fashion fails on the show. Like Serena lazily tacking her tassel into her hair. WTF? So, let’s rich bitch it up together, shall we?

First, there was the “murse.” Then, there was “manty-hose.” Now, there are sparkly “penis plugs.” While they’re not entirely new, these penile accessories are enjoying a renewed surge in popularity.
Instead of plain ones, men who love to trick out their dicks have options galore from Swarovski-studded to titanium-tipped. Fancy!
The plugs are inserted into the tip of the penis. Despite the ouch factor, the appeal of the plug is that it’s visually-pleasing and sexually-stimulating. They’re also financially-draining. As with any custom accessory, you have to get professionally fitted, and it will run you $150 or more. But if that’s your best asset, why not show it off? Keep reading »
If you’ve spent days, months, years sitting around wishing, dreaming, hoping for a chandelier made of lingerie, you, my friend, are in luck. Check out this pantychandelier currently on view at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair in New York City. Hot or not? Apartment Therapy wonders. Hard to say. In the comments, people can’t make up their minds if they love it or hate it. “A naked bulb would be a lot sexier than this.” “[T]hat is completely ridiculous. tasteless. looks like someone just threw their underwear up onto the chandelier …” “I get this already since my neighbor hangs all her bras and lingerie on the drapery rod in her dining room which is across from my dining room window. I can tell you it isn’t something you really want to see while eating.” Personally, I think it’s kind of awesome, in a strange sort of way. It’s sort of like if Dita von Teese exploded, and this is all that was left of her, her lingerie hanging from the light fixture. So, what do you think? Love it? Hate it? Or don’t know what to make of it? [Apartment Therapy] Keep reading »
This is the age of multitasking, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that fashion is following suit. Voilà: the Cap-Sac, a hat-cum-fannypack that protects you from the sun and stores your keys and wallet at the same time. Amazing! The nylon 80s-vibe chapeaus come in funky fresh colors like turquoise, pink, electric-yellow and cool zipper detail. Go full-on retro by pairing them with hammer pants, or rock it hipster-style with Wayfarers and skinny jeans. [$12.99, Cap-Sac.com] Keep reading »
