I’ve always been drawn to thick, dark eyebrows. I love the drama and definition they bring to the face, and I get so excited when “bold brows” are declared a trend (this has happened approximately once a year for the past 50 years) and fashion designers start sending models down the runway with giant black smears over their eyes to really drive the point home.

This scarf is a great way to get the Ikat trend into your wardrobe without having to dive in completely. You can add a pop of color or texture to any number of outfits, wear around your neck or head, or tied to your bag. The combination of green, orange, pink and ivory is perfect for fall, and works well with just about any skin tone. It would look beautiful thrown over everything from a peacoat or giant sweater to a silk or lace top. [Luxury Ikat Scarf, $40, Spun by Subtle] Keep reading »
As much as we love the ’90s, “Beverly Hills 90210,” and fashion, we sure don’t want to look like we literally stepped out of your giant old television with those bunny ear antennas. This black “satin” number with giant white bow is the almost spitting image of the infamous homecoming dress that Brenda and Kelly both accidentally wore. Actually, if you wanted to do a remake of that scene with a few of your lady friends and a bottle of vino, this would be the dress to use, and at 70 percent off, perfect for the filming of an alternate ending — CAT FIGHT! Uh oh, did we just turn this into a “do want”?! [Bow Trim Satin Sheath Dress, $20.99 Spiegel] Keep reading »
I’m all for accessories that make a strong statement, but let’s make sure that statement isn’t, “I just stopped by the pet store and strapped a couple angry guinea pigs to my head.” And for $165? You could buy one pair of normal sized, reasonably priced ear muffs and, like, 10 happy guinea pigs. I mean, if you were into the guinea pig thing. [Shopbop] Keep reading »
Olivier Zahm is a fashion editor whose sex life is an open book. Literally. Well, virtually, rather. The editor of the artsy fashion bible Purple, Olivier is known for posting salacious pictures and stories from his life online. In a big New York Times Styles profile on the lad, he likens himself to Warhol. He says, “Even in the bedroom I have my camera, I sleep with my camera, I have lunch with my camera.” What this often means is providing to his viewers and followers very graphic portraits of the women he’s with, who seem to rotate with shocking frequency. When Zahm takes trips from Paris to New York, the Purple Diary blog is updated constantly, and each day Zahm is kissing a different girl or taking photographs of someone’s breasts who were definitely not the same someone’s yesterday.
