This holiday weekend, we’ll be getting our Christmas tree up. Yay! But gurl, just because we like some traditions, doesn’t mean we want our 5-foot fir looking like everyone else’s. So, this year, we’re skipping bland plastic balls and grabbing a bunch of bad ass handmade ceramic ornaments by Edwards Pottery AKA Etsy seller HeartherLEdwards123. Our fave are these skull and cross bone cuties. Plus, she’s also crafted awesome owls, adorable kittens, and bitchin’ bones. But the best part is, after the holidaze, you can still show off these super cool ceramic pieces by wearing them as a statement necklace. Bonus!

Love Karl Lagerfeld’s designs, but can’t actually afford Chanel or one of his eponymous collections? Well, you’re in luck because Uncle Karl is going to release a collection just for Macy’s. Yep, you read that right. Karl Lagerfeld plus Macy’s equals a mass collection that will include jeans, party dresses, and everything in between. The collection is slated for a 2011 release. This collaboration is quite shocking as Lagerfeld doesn’t seem like the type of person to even walk into a Macy’s. [Fashionista] Keep reading »
Forget comparing Nicki Minaj to Lil’ Kim. I’d much rather ponder who would win the style battle between Nicki and Rainbow Brite. They both have blond hair and favor wearing multiple colors at once, but does one do her look better than the other? My vote is Rainbow, hands down, because at least she matches. Your thoughts?
