The 9-Incher You’ve Always Dreamed About

As a woman with 70 pairs of pumps (and clearly, a bevy of shoe-fetishists for exes), I can tell you that there is no such thing as too high a heel! Nobody understands this better than British shoe retailer Parmars. Next year, they’ll unleash the Sky Heel, a nearly 9-inch platform for crazy shoe whores like me who date super tall men and have health insurance (just in case of a lil’ slip ‘n’ fall). The heels are being made in glittery red or gold (classy?) and retail for around 65 smackers. Kinda steep for pumps that’ll never leave my bedroom, but the look on all my ex-boyfriends’ faces when they see a pic of me in these will be priceless! Mwahahahahaha! Above, I have made a mock-up of what I hope the design will look like, but in 2011, the real deal will be revealed. The checkout line forms behind me! [SWNS] Keep reading »

A Different Kind Of Pinup Calendar

Another year, another totally embarrassing United Bamboo Cat Calendar. We didn’t think they could top themselves, and yet, here we are, staring down Professor J. Catsworthy in his special United Bamboo tailored jacket. You can order the 2011 version of the calendar via their site — and we highly recommend you do. After all, what’s better than 12 full months of totally mortified cats in clothing? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Share Your DIY Gift Ideas!

With the holidays right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about gifts. Unless you’re my mom, in which case you started thinking about this year’s holiday gifts on December 26th of last year. But for the rest of us, mid-to-late November is a sane time to get the ball rolling. And if you think you might like to make any homemade gifts, you should probably get cracking pronto — at least on the planning. In the comments, I’d love to hear your ideas for DIY gifts — things you’ve done in the past, ideas you’ve seen elsewhere and would like to try, things you’ve received and loved — especially if they don’t require too much in the way of sewing, knitting or crafty skills. After the jump, a few ideas to get things started. Keep reading »

What’s The Strangest Gift You’ve Ever Received?

Ever get a truly tacky, off-the-wall ugly present — like the leg table above — and wonder just what the heck the gift giver was thinking? Well, now there’s a place for all of your unwanted but well-meaning presents. Why Did You Buy Me That? chronicles strange-but-true gifts — everything from ugly jugs and creepy baby plaster heads to Elvis ducks and pleather dachshund purses. Check out several more terrible gifts after the jump. And tell us: what’s the weirdest gift you’ve ever gotten? [Why Did You Buy Me That?] Keep reading »

The Reversible Jean Makes Its Debut

Finally, the conundrum of how to pack light has been answered. European denim line Salsa Fits My Life has designed The Two, a reversible jean with light and dark washes. One side of the jean is a light wash that’s perfect for day, and the other side is a dark denim finish that’ll make dressing for night a snap. The Two retails for $179, but think of how much wear you’ll get out of one pair — think cost per wear and you know you’ll get your money’s worth. Plus, since it’s two pairs of jeans in one, The Two also makes packing light easy. All you’ll have to add are a few tops, a dress, and shoes for a long weekend away. The jeans are available at Fred Segal, Lisa Kline, Tobi, and the Salsa Fits My Life boutique in L.A. What do you think of reversible jeans? Would you wear ‘em? [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »

Don’t You Dare Decorate Alone

Home decorating is overwhelming, even for folks who aren’t colorblind. But housewares designer Jonathan Adler breaks it down for those of us with Kelly Wearstler dreams on an Ikea budget. In his book Jonathan Adler on Happy Chic Accessorizing, he tells you how to arrange everything from pillowcases to coffee tables, and shares his favorite paint chips and fabric swatches. Naturally, there are tons of photos of rooms decorated in his quirky, colorful style and his dog, Liberace, is the pup on the cover! Follow Adler’s motto, “95% chic + 5% happy,” and I bet you’ll love your home so much you’ll never want to leave.
