It can be hard to keep track of memories, especially when you switch apartments every year and the movers keep misplacing boxes. This ring holds extra special keepsakes right on your finger, where you can see them whenever you need a little boost. Or, if you need a place to stash a dose of birth control, that works, too.

When I pierced my tongue at 16 years old, I knew exactly what I was doing. So it’s really funny to me that when they notice I have a tongue ring, the most common thing people say (after asking “Did it hurt?) is to say, “You must have been trying to get attention from your parents!”
Yes, of course. Obviously.
99 percent of the time, I don;’t Keep reading »
Most fashion shows are known for emaciated, twig-like models strutting down runways, but there’s a different kind of fashion week going on right now. Full-Figured Fashion Week took five years to organize, but, at last, arrived in New York yesterday. Until Saturday night, designers will show buyers and the press their clothes for plus-size women, as well as take part in panels such as “The State of the Curvy Community.”
“The main objective is to show the consumers and buyers that there are other designers out there,” organizer Gwen DeVoe told The Daily Beast. She also said plus-size women care about looking good, rather than having tunics and jersey dresses as their only options. Keep reading »
Don’t bother denying it, you’ve been trying to dress like Blair and Serena for months now. Well, your days of attempting to make $50 dresses look like Chanel are over, courtesy of Anna Sui. The quirky chic designer has just released images of her Gossip Girl-inspired collection for Target and we’re definitely getting the appropriate level of Blair vibes from the dress all the way on the left. Check out the whole collection here before it launches September 13. [The Cut] Keep reading »
A photo from Madonna’s second Louis Vuitton ad campaign was leaked, and — surprise, surprise! — it features Madge wearing a pair of the bunny ears she rocked at last month’s Met Ball. Luckily, they look a lot less crazy in the campaign than they did in real life — some fashion just doesn’t translate to life beyond the Playboy mansion. In this upcoming campaign, she appears less like a hooker than she did in the last one, but I still prefer the brand’s series featuring former astronauts. No one sells Louis bags like Buzz Aldrin.

“Boxy” isn’t a word often associated with looking good. It’s more the sort of thing my mom calls me on a chubby day or that one time I wore an oversized blazer and came out looking sort of like a cross between a school marm and a stripper about to get the show going. Anyway, I screwed the pooch on that one but recent Royal Academy of Fine Arts grad Irina Shaposhnikova got boxy right like you wouldn’t believe in her graduation fashion show.

How we gonna dress like “Jenny from the Block” now? Jennifer Lopez is reportedly stopping production of her clothing line, Sweetface, which launched in 2003. Unlike other celeb lines so closely tied to the faces that promote them, Sweetface actually had a distance from the J. Lo megashine, and stood on its own with sexy draped tops, ruffled jumpers, and tight black miniskirts. The collection was less about Lopez, but more about creating clothing that looked like something she’d actually wear. There’s a possibility, however, that the brand will be reborn with an “entirely new fashion point of view,” the company said. In that case, your frown might turn upside down. Let’s just hope that “new viewpoint” isn’t something horrifically trashtastic (we’re looking at you, Heidi Montag). [Access Hollywood] Keep reading »
We normally put away our boots in favor of flip-flops and sandals when summer comes, but ankle boots have made their presence known on red carpets of late, and we’re trying to decide whether we should keep our feet ensconced in leather for the next few months.
“There are certain women who are just over wearing dresses with delicate shoes,” designer Alexander Wang told The New York Times. “They enjoy the irony of pairing something heavy with something short and sexy.” Keep reading »
I am not a huge fan of “keeping it real.” Real often sucks. Where does real usually leave me? For starters: pale, too broke to afford jewelry I really want, mousy mop-topped and sleep deprived. I am not suggesting we all become cookie-cutter Barbies and I am all for embracing what nature gave us, yet there are just a few guilty pleasures in life where the fake version is indeed better than the real deal.
