Add Some Edge With A Cool Cuff

Since cell phones became the new watches, your wrists may be in need of something to take their place. Perhaps you could take a tip from the unlucky watch-stealers with wrists stuck in cuffs. Tight-fitting like the handcuffs a cop carries, a cuff bracelet is a fun and flashy way to add edge to your look. They can’t tell time, but they can take a simple outfit to a more fun and accessorized level! Like the variety of watches you’ve retired, you can find a cuff to match to the core of your style. Casual or cordial, leather or lustrous, boyish or bangle-like, there’s a big selection of cuffs to make a big impression. While some provide all-around clasping security to save those like me from losing another piece of jewelry, the c-shaped variety are great for a bit more mobility and easy attachment. Check out the slideshow for a fashion police-approved selection. Keep reading »

Etsy Find Of The Week: Wonting Notebooks And Prints

The inevitable nostalgic itch to start buying school supplies–even if you graduated long ago–is starting right about now. Then again, you’re probably not going to become enamored by the offerings at Office Max. These notebooks from Etsy seller Wonting NYC are the perfect compromise. Simple yet cute designs adorn the kraft paper covers. Inside, you’ll find blank perforated pages and a pocket for keeping receipts and scrap paper.

Brigitte Bardot’s Eyes Would Add Some Sparkle To Your Sofa

Designer Angéline Bailly modifies photographs, printing images — from classic pics to modern cityscapes — on large-format canvas for her furniture and home accessories label Téo Jasmin. Among our favorite items are this Louis XV sofa featuring Brigitte Bardot’s eyes and pillows printed with the drawing from The Beatles’ Revolver album and a plump pair of lips. They’d add a little pop-art punch to our otherwise Ikea-infested apartments. [Téo Jasmin via Apartment Therapy] Keep reading »

Shocker! Kate Moss Looks Different Before And After Airbrushing

Kate Moss is hotter than ever these days. She’s killing it in new Prada and Just Cavalli campaigns, gracing the September covers of W and Russian Vogue, and recent business dealings with Simon Cowell and Philip Green indicate that the model-turned-designer is also entering into entertainment mogul territory. But the Daily Mail, one of the UK’s most entertaining and trashtastic papers, is always ready to cut a celeb down to size, and they love their Kate pot shots. This time, however, they’ve gone too far. Keep reading »

Crave: “Who’s The Blonde That Married What’s-His-Name?” (Win One!)

Who’s The Blonde That Married What’s-His-Name by Carol Boswell and Lenore Skenazy is like Mad Libs for adults. In other words, you get to fill in the blanks and give your brain a mini-workout.

Are Fashion Experts Out Of Touch With Middle America?

OK, sure, I think we all know what the resounding answer is. But how out of touch are they? New York Times Fashion & Style writer Cintra Wilson has been catching an internet’s worth of flack lately regarding an article she penned about the new J.C. Penney store, which has just opened in midtown Manhattan. Now, anyone who’s ever tentatively stepped a Lanvin-clad flat a few miles outside of New York City knows that a J.C. Penney store opening is nothing to write home about, but, apparently, it’s a big huge deal in a town filled with Pradas and Chanels and Louis Vuittons. Not surprisingly, Wilson found little to like about the store, which she referred to as a “dowdy Middle American entity.” When she couldn’t find anything in her size, which is “2,” she delivered a shocker.

Are Gay Designers Responsible For All Of Fashion’s Problems?

It’s hard not to hate Perez Hilton. Dude can be a real d-bag. So, when Jezebel blogger Tracie Egan wrote on her own blog that she’s not nervous about Hilton’s new CocoPerez “lady blog,” we were pretty much in agreement. After all, Jezebel is pretty awesome as far as the feminist blog set goes, and Perez Hilton draws penises on women’s faces. But Egan moved quickly from criticizing Perez for thinking he “gets” women to bitching about gay men in general. According to Egan, gay men are to blame for most of the problems in the fashion industry.

Armored Jeans Protect Against Angry Fashionistas

Armor-like clothing and jewelry seem to be having a moment right now. Denim brand Acne is slated to offer a pair of armored jeans in its spring/summer 2010 lookbook. The polished plates on the knees, thighs, and calves will protect you if your heel catches and causes you to tumble to the sidewalk — or if a jealous friend kicks you in the shins. We’d like to know whether they make your legs sweat, or if the armor is somehow breathable. [via NY Mag] Keep reading »

The Woman Behind Valentino and Chanel

Did you know that designer greats Coco Chanel and Valentino Garavani didn’t achieve fashion icon status on their own? As it turns out, French designer Madeleine Vionnet was more than a little responsible for their massively successful couture feats. Not only did she reshape the fashion world with the “invention” of the bias cut, cowl neck, halter top, and handkerchief dress, she helped create a truly progressive style for women in the early 20th century. You know how French women always look gorgeous, modern, and like they never try too hard? That was her. Keep reading »
