Closets mean different things for different people. If you’re Carrie Bradshaw, it’s a sanctuary and shrine. If you’re a slob, it’s your cleaning quick-fix that houses any assortment of junk. And if you’re someone who lives in a cramped studio apartment in Chinatown, then you probably don’t have a closet, so for you it represents envy.
For workout fiends, your dressing zone could also be your home gym thanks to a company called Process that creates “fitness furniture”–aka wardrobes that open up to reveal bars that allow you to stretch, do crunches, or perform pull-ups. The design is kind of cool, but we’re not so sure we’d be down with sweating in such close proximity to a pile of newly dry cleaned cashmere sweaters. Process also makes a table that doubles as exercise bars when you turn it over … which might actually come in handy for the studio apartment crowd. What do you think? Cool idea or no?

It was love at first sight when we peeped the nOir “Daggers” knife stud earrings because they’re everything we want in a piece of jewelry — shiny, glitzy, and violent. OK, so maybe that last one isn’t what we’re really about, but we do like to think of ourselves as women who are more exciting than your average wearers of stud earrings. So we’ll pick an earring that has some edge over a regular old ball stud any day.
I thought it was a fluke when I saw two women on two separate occasions wearing a ’90s French roll, a hairstyle in which the hair is rolled and tucked starting at the nape of the neck and pinned to the back of the head. But then, Kourtney Kardashian wore her hair in a roll this week, too. And you know what they say … three instances makes a trend. So is the French roll making a comeback? Keep reading »
This has happened to us before. When we were 6 years old. And did not understand how to wear clothing properly.
Now there’s a company out there making custom 2-in-1 jeans that take two back halves and sew them together so that your butt pockets become your front pockets. Edgy? Perhaps. But we’d imagine most people would just think you got dressed in the dark. [Mind What You Wear] Keep reading »
For well over a decade, Martin Margiela has made a point to contribute to AIDS charities and research. This year’s AIDS awareness t-shirt design features Japanese scripture, which reads: “There is more action to be done to fight AIDS than to wear this t-shirt, but it’s a good start.” Proceeds go to a French HIV/AIDS foundation.

It’s day 22 of the 30-Day Cellulite Challenge, which means there’s only about a week left, and things are looking good. I’ve been using Karin Herzog‘s Dynamic Duo Anti-Cellulite Kit for about three weeks, and it seems to be working. By the way, at the end of my experiment, we’ll be offering a deal on the Herzog products, so you can try them yourself.
Now, though, there’s another issue. Keep reading »
