Most of us get the time from our smart phones or computer monitor, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t wear a stylish timepiece. Since watches are the one accessory no one will fault you for wearing everyday without changing, you should up the statement making-factor by choosing one in a bold color or print, an unconventional design or noticeable metal. After the jump find seven really chic watch choices. I’ve got my eye on #3 and #6.

If your mother is anything like mine, she probably used to yell at you all winter: “If you don’t put on a hat, you’re going to catch pneumonia!” I hated wearing my stocking hat when I was younger — all the cool girls had ear muffs or knit headbands. Oh, how the times have changed. Now, I’d wear any of the elegant hats below every day without complaint. When it starts to snow and I’m walking down the street wearing my ribbon-trimmed cloche, I’m going to feel like the most sophisticated girl in town. Keep reading »
The sharp chill here in the Northeast has us pulling out our thickest tights, warmest sweaters, and assortment of winter accessories in preparation for the months ahead. While we have plenty of scarves to get us through, we’re in the mood for a neck cozy this year. Hipper than a scarf, more comfy than a turtleneck, a neck cozy like the those from Etsy seller Yokoo look so warm and stylish, we think winter may actually be tolerable this year. And if we do get the winter blues, there’s always Yokoo’s fun photos to cheer us up. [$70-$135, Etsy] Keep reading »
You’ll be struck by the greenery—Forest Park is the largest wilderness park within city limits in the United States, and Washington Park’s rose garden is worth a visit—and the friendly vibe of Portland, Oregon.

Sure, the area has a reputation for rain, but what’s sexier than snuggling up with your significant other during a rainstorm? Check out these hot spots, and you’ll forget all about the weather.

These itty-bitty oxidized-silver bullet studs are perfectly feminine and edgy at the same time. It can be difficult to find an accessory that truly goes with everything, but these do the trick. They’ll balance out the frilliness of a girlie dress, and they’ll look just as good with an over-sized sweater, leggings, and bad ass boots. You’ll never want to take them out. [$40, Shopbop] Keep reading »
So, let’s say your political candidate of choice lost last night…or years ago. If you’re driving a vintage Volvo that supports Mondale/Ferraro or you’re too distraught to cover up the McCain/Palin sticker on the back of your Durango with one that says MY OTHER CAR IS A ZAMBONI (I’m looking at you, hockey moms), here’s how to remove it completely. Because if ever there was a time for change, it’s now.

Dita Von Teese, watch out. Check out this coffee table book of photographs by celebrity photographer Timothy White, starring Hollywood It-girls done up as retro-pinups. In the past, White’s shot stars ranging from Harrison Ford to Will Smith, but this time around he went for old school Hollywood, girly glamor. His pinup makeover subjects include Cindy Crawford, Gina Gershon, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Kate Hudson, Michelle Trachtenberg, Molly Sims, Vanessa Williams, and Mary-Kate Olsen. You can check out Olsen’s shot here. We like that the images are classy, not crass. These days, more is the new less. Keep reading »
We usually keep our change in a jar on our bedroom windowsill and empty the quarters out once a week for laundry, but with a coin purse this sweet, we may have to get rid of that jar completely. Cute enough to be carried by itself, it’s still the perfect size to be thrown into a handbag and pulled out when you want to buy a newspaper… Or, you know, do a load of laundry.
