The OnePiece (better known as the “adult babygro”) is the new must-have winter wear in the U.K. Like to wear in public—not just to sleep in on Christmas Eve. Starting at only $110, you too can look like an adult baby. Waaaahhh! Bad trend! [The Daily Mail] Keep reading »
We’re always on the lookout for affordable, seemingly one-of-a-kind jewelry. Zedena Designs delivers on both with its handmade pieces. We’re particularly taken with the Damask Songbird on Brass necklace, which features a songbird enameled in a damask pattern and a hand-antiqued brass chain complete with Zedena Designs’ signature heart-shaped clasp. It’ll quickly become your favorite piece because it adds just the right amount of color to any outfit.
The other day a friend sent me a link to an item on the Madewell site. “Weren’t these the shorts you wanted? They went on sale and are only $11!” Tempting, but I told her I was abstaining from all fashion purchases at the moment. “I’m on a fashion diet,” I said. While the term “fashion diet” might sound like some god-awful liquid food plan to be able to fit into a dress, it’s what we like to call taking a break from style-related shopping (well, except the necessities, like if you run out of shampoo).

International crisis alert! Supermodel and all-around babe Natalia Vodianova dared to show up at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year ceremony night before last with legs that had not been shaved. I know! You can hardly believe it either. The Daily Mail dedicated an entire article to this body hair situation (as did we, apparently), and, get this, Vodianova had the nerve to flaunt her fur by pulling up her skirt for the photographers. Not only that! Coco Perez has previously documented sightings of the model’s thigh hair. As StyleList points out, she’s a mother of three, so maybe she didn’t have time to get out the razor. Check out the hair concern here, if you so desire. [StyleList] Keep reading »
When I saw the first few seconds of Prada’s latest fashion film, I thought, Hm, they’ve animated a runway show. How dull. But what the company is calling a “MotionBook,” rather than a “Look Book,” is actually quite a bit more than that: a startling, beautiful, surreal blending of pieces from the fall/winter 2010 line overlayed with a mix of animation twists. Grazia says of the James Lima-directed short, “We love the fashion-illustration-come-to-life feel of it, and the raw, almost comic book treatment of the images,” and so do we. Now if only we could get real life to look like that. [Grazia] Keep reading »
This adorable mini-collage would look amazing framed and hung up in a glassed-walled sun room, surrounded by potted ferns and gilded curiosities from around the world. Luckily for me (since I don’t have a glass-walled sun room or a fern), it would also look awesome tacked onto the inspiration wall above my desk, surrounded by black and white photo booth strips and my treasured Spice Girls concert tickets.
And that, my friends, proves what a versatile little piece of art this is. [$7, Etsy] Keep reading »
