Summer Drinks To Sip By The Pool

After spending about six months in London one thing was clear, the go to summer drink was Pimm’s and Lemonade whether you were at the boat races or the beach. Here are just a few of my favorite summer cocktail concoctions for the perfect lazy summer afternoon.

Pimm’s & Lemonade

Best for: Watching the Oxford-Cambridge boat race or sailing in the hamptons
How to make it: 1/4 Pimm’s No. 1
3/4 Lemonade
Some mint leaves, lots of ice and some fruit for fun

Sangria

Best for: late night christmas light laden backyard bbqs (we’re giving you a fun white wine alternative)
How to make it: 1 bottle of white wine (riesling, or some equally delicious sweet white wine)
1/2 cup peach schnapps
1/2 cup soda (anything citrus based like sprite)
fruit (mangoes, peaches, pineapple)

Planter’s Punch

Best for: kicking back in a rocking chair or swaying in a hammock
How to make it: 1/3 Dark Rum
1/3 Orange Juice
1/3 Pineapple Juice
some Lime Juice and Grenadine

Mojito

Best for: anywhere and everywhere
How to make it: 1/2 cup rum
two tbsp. sugar
three tbsp. limejuice

Giles Deacon’s Collection For Swarovski Is Sharp, Literally

Giles Deacon has become a popular guy in the fashion world in recent years, especially for his innovative (and funny) Pac-Man-themed runway show at last year’s London Fashion Week. His latest work is a collaboration with Swarovski, which features felt cuffs and necklaces adorned with a mish-mash of pointy studs, crystals, and glorified safety pins fashioned with ribbon closures. The products are certainly conversation pieces, especially if you’re going for that “Xena: Warrior Princess” look. [Notcoture, Swarovski] Keep reading »

Crave: Steven Shein Fangs Necklace

Keep this hush-hush. A few years ago, we wanted grillz. Not overly iced-out ones, but some fear-evoking metal fangs to go against our girly-girl exterior. We came to our senses, though, realizing that grillz would be one fashion faux pas we’d never be able to live down. But we recently found this Fangs Necklace, and not only does it satisfy our grillz fascination, but it also makes us feel a little like Sookie Stackhouse in “True Blood” — you know, because she doesn’t have fangs of her own.

Kate Moss Grabs Her Crotch To Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean”

In 2000, after a Harper’s Bazaar shoot, photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin were hanging around with model Kate Moss, drinking and dancing. Then, Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” came one, and Kate started channeling the King of Pop, trying out gestures, footwork, and, of course, the infamous crotch-thrust-and-grab. And they caught it all on video. [SHOWstudio]

Stunning Toilet Paper Wedding Dress

Thankfully, the final weeks of my engagement have been pleasantly devoid of bachelorette parties with plastic penis products or bridal showers with cheesy games, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate a beautiful toilet paper wedding dress when I see one. Don’t think a toilet paper wedding dress can be beautiful? You obviously haven’t seen the winners of Cheap Chic Weddings toilet-paper wedding dress contest. Ann Kagawa Lee of Honolulu took the grand prize for her couture-like creation (compared by some to an Oscar de la Renta gown) made from nothing more than toilet paper, tape, and glue. Her theme was “Gone With the Wind” and Japanese origami, and it shows. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is astounding — even more impressive than the coffee filter prom dress we saw last month. After the jump, check out a close-up of the hat she made to go with the dress. [via The Cut]

Gucci Releases New Jackie Bag Line

Gucci will release a new interpretation of its classic Jackie style (after Jackie Kennedy), along with this sexy ad campaign with Brigitte Bardot lookalike, Anja Rubik. The new, larger size takes the bag to an edgier level with versions in metallic/violet leather, brown python, and an envy-inducing green python. The collection of 12 styles comes out in the fall, even though the news broke just a few days short of the 4th of July. So, does America trump Italy in this case? [View on Fashion] Keep reading »

Is Beyoncé’s New Juniors Line Too Fierce?

Teen girls should be able to express themselves. That’s the point of Beyoncé and Tina Knowles’s new juniors collection for their already established label (Déreon), called Sasha Fierce, after Beyoncé’s album character. Says Tina, “[The collection] is edgier and trendier and reflects Sasha Fierce’s daring and outgoing attitude.” Edgy is a mild way of putting the “back-to-school” looks that include curve-hugging minidresses, one-shouldered dresses, black bodysuits, and fingerless gloves and f**k-me pumps. 


So far, Beyoncé has been a fairly solid role model as someone who exudes a huge amount of confidence, is sexy without being slutty, and projects a solid image of family and relationships. But, we have to ask…would you let your teen go to school dressed like this? [WWD] Keep reading »

Summer Scents You Can Spritz On The Go!

Summer can be the busiest time of year for many of us. Three months of vacation, travel, weekend excursions, surprise visits and spontaneous road trips! All those days at the beach, evening concerts and other balmy night activities sure are fun, but keep us busy and running all around! What is the best way to stay looking and smelling so fresh and so clean (clean) if there’s no time to stop by the house in between things? There’s travel size cosmetics, blotting papers, compact mirrors, mini hair brushes and even dry shampoo! But what about perfume? Continue reading Keep reading »

Crave: Nerdist “Nice Tweets” Tee

Know how when you’re talking to a guy and his eyes are wandering about eight inches below your mouth you kind of start to think that those tacky “my eyes are up higher” tees are maybe justified? Well, they’re still not. But you can give him something to laugh at (and feel like an ass about) with this nerd girl appropriate “Nice Tweets” tee. Supposedly they’re printed on an “American Apparel shirt so soft, you’ll swear you’re wearing a cloud made of babies.” We don’t hate the sound of that. [$20, Nerdist] Keep reading »
