Style On The Street: Button-Downs Don’t Have To Be Buttoned

Let’s take a minute to remember the ’90s. Nirvana played on the radio, “Beverly Hills 90210″ was on TV, and you wore huge flannel shirts to school, sometimes with a kick-ass concert tee underneath. We’re not in the ’90s anymore, so this gal classed up the open-shirt look by swapping flannel for crisp, white oxford. [Weardrobe]

Crave: Sports Team T-Shirt

If you are a sports fan like us, why not get into the festive sports spirit by rocking your favorite sports team T-shirt? The problem is when you go to buy a shirt with your team logo, it’s either too expensive or too big. Alyssa Milano created a line of sporting T-shirts, hoodies, jackets and pants for women. We’re loving this 3/4 sleeve raglan T-shirt. It’s cute and fitted and you get to show your team pride. And It’s not overly priced for those female fans out there who still want to look and feel sexy.You can order shirts for NFL, MLB, NHL, NBA and NCAA. Did anyone know this chick had a clothing line?

Post-New Year’s Eve Crafts

If you drank a lot of bubbly last night (I know I did), you probably have a few empty bottles lying around your apartment. While you’re getting over your hangover today, make a mini chair by following the instructions provided by Instructables, or glue Champagne bottle crown caps to magnets for chic refrigerator adornments. Keeping your hands busy should distract you from that throbbing head. Keep reading »

Crave: “Do You Like Me?” T-Shirt

Remember when you were in grade school and you totally had a crush on the cute boy in your class who had warts on his hands and so one day you passed him a note when the teacher wasn’t looking which said, “Do you like me? Yes Or No (circle one)?” This t-shirt will remind you of that time — although hopefully he circled “Yes.” [$34, 80sPurple.com] Keep reading »

These Shoes Are Wacky

I found these crazy heels by way of Trend de la Creme. Aren’t they wild? This particular model, with a rocket-riding robot on it, is called the Wonder Girl. Their creator? The UK-based shoe manufacturer Irregular Choice. And they’ve got plenty more shoe oddities to chose from, for girls who like to let their heels do their talking for them. Take, for example, these pale blue cheekily charmed boots with a see-through heel. These big-buckled ones sport prancing unicorns on their soles. Cherry Loves It are poppin’ if you’re lookin’ to get Shibuya-ready. Fancy yourself a space cowgirl? And then there’s the Alphabite. For dancing girls: a sky-high boot with a tipping slot. The line comes from the mind of designer David Sullivan and have rocked the runway at Heatherette. Keep reading »

Lose Weight When You Walk

Ladies! Throw those weight loss resolutions out the window. There is a new piece of workout equipment destined to change your life. It’s a shoe. I know, I was a skeptic too. But The MBT (Massai Barefoot Technology) is being called the world’s smallest gym. It looks like a sneaker but the sole is curved and thick. Initially, when you put them on it almost feels like you might fall backwards because it seems like you’re walking on a springy mass (like a trampoline) or a sandy beach. But once you get comfortable walking in the shoes, it’s like a total body workout without even putting in work. You just walk like you normally do. You can run your errands or go for a walk, only this time you’re getting a serious workout in. The shoe works on firming and toning your abs, thighs, legs and butt muscles. I’m not complaining about trying to drop a couple of holiday pounds. It also helps improve posture and relieves stress on our joints and back. The shoe is so hot reportedly celebs like Gwyneth Paltrow, Cher and Heidi Klum own a pair. Keep reading »

Crave: Thakoon For Target Shibori Woven Dress

We’re not completely sure why Target decided to put out a “resort” line of summery clothes in the middle of winter. Did they do it to torment those of us currently dealing with snow and ice, or something? Luckily, there’s at least one piece in the Thakoon collection that you can wear right now, whether you live in Milwaukee (put on thick, brightly colored tights) or Florida (bare legs and sandals). We bet Thakoon-lover Michelle Obama is picking one up, too. [$39.99, Target.com] Keep reading »

10 Love Affairs We’re Ending

We’ve all had something that we’re really excited about initially, but then it lets us down. At that point, we have to reassess our “loves it” list and move on to the next thing. These 10 items were overdone in 2008, so in 2009 we’re ending our love affair. Keep reading »

Crave: Benetint Lip Balm SPF 15

Benefit’s versatile Benetint stain has long been one of our favorite beauty products, mainly because it makes our cheeks look nice and rosy, like we just spent a couple hours sledding in Vermont. It’s supposed to work wonders on lips, too, but when we tried it once, the brush tickled us too much. That’s why the new Benetint Lip Balm is perfect. The tinted lip balm comes in a pot, so you use your finger to apply it, and it contains vitamin E and sunscreen. Now, if only someone would kiss us. [$20, Benefit] Keep reading »
