Baby Hair Extensions Make Waves

Baby high heels are so 2008. This year is all about baby hair extensions! For mothers out there who are sick of correcting people that their bald baby is in fact a little lady, a Beverly Hills-based company called Baby Bangs has created hair pieces that will turn your little bundle of joy into a mini-diva a la Jessica Simpson or newly weaved, Katie Holmes. All you have to do is slip on the skull cap of silky fake strands tied to an elastic headband and voilá, your baby is undeniably a girlie girl! There are five different headband designs and six hair colors to choose from. So, now you’ll never have to hear someone say, “What a cute little boy!” ever again. Though you might hear a few cries of, “Bad mom! Bad mom!” [Trend Hunter]

Crave: Awesome Peacock Clutch

Etsy can be total hit or miss. Sometimes it’s just pages of crafty crap, other times weird kitschy-cool stuff. But every once in a while, you’ll find a sleek, totally shoplift-worthy item like this smart peacock clutch. This roomy handbag is made-to-order and in addition to the antique-brass detailing and totally eye-catching embroidery, it is lined with fine turquoise silk. Original AND classy!

Crop Tops Are Back And Other Unsexy Fashion Trends

Sadly, crop tops are making a resurgence, having been spotted at Topshop, on the Alexander McQueen runway, and on street-style icons like Rumi Neely. But we think this trend is baaaad because there’s so much room for error. The only place we’d like to see the crop top is on a “Beverly Hills, 90210″ marathon. We’re not just going to hate on the midriff top, though, because there are other fashion trends that want to be sexy, but are actually gross. [Refinery29]

Crave: Topshop Stripe Block Poplin Dress

Look naughty and nautical in this cutie-pie poplin dress from Topshop. Of course, Topshop hasn’t opened Stateside yet (be patient until April, our pet) so you’ll have to import this little number from England. It comes in red, too, in case you’re channeling “candy striper,” not “longshoreman.” [About $80, TopShop.com] Keep reading »

Roberto Cavalli’s Doggy Designs Are Fit For An S&M Club

Roberto Cavalli, the over-the-top designer with a knack for swathing men and women in copious amounts of leopard print, beading, and leather, is coming after your dog. He’s launching a line of petwear that promises to make your pooch the envy of the Miami club scene. Seriously, I know people dressing their dogs up is kind of common now, and I will admit that Lucca has a jacket that she wears when it’s freezing and/or raining, but leopard pajamas and leather vests are a bit much. What’s next? Donatella Versace designing doggy evening wear? [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

Style Buzz: Michelle Obama’s New Yorker Cover, PETA Effs Up

  • Michelle Obama graces another cover — this time, The New Yorker‘s style issue. The mag pokes fun at the kerfluffle surrounding Michelle’s bare arms with three doodles of Michelle strutting down a runway, arms covered up! [Mrs. O]
  • PETA strikes again! The animal rights group ripped a sleeve on the Balenciaga gown worn by French Vogue editor, Carine Roitfeld, while aiming for her goat fur coat. I don’t condone assaulting people in public, but if you are going to go after someone, ruin the correct couture, at least. [Style.com]
  • Eighties-inspired two tone lipstick, yay or nay? [Refinery29]

Crave: Navy Patent Pumps

We are suckers for patent round toe pumps. They go with everything and are perfect for work and play. Black, on the other hand, does not always go with everything and can get rather boring anyway. That’s why these navy patent pumps are perfect for those days when you need an alternative neutral to compliment some fabulous outfit for which black simply will not do. Best of all, they are from Target, are almost embarrassingly affordable, and are (fairly) comfortable. Can we get a “Woohoo!?” [$29.99, Mossimo Valonia Pump] Keep reading »

Style Buzz: Zooey Deschanel Is The Latest Celeb To Enter The Fashion Biz

  • Adorable Zooey Deschanel is designing a line of sunglasses with Oliver Peoples! Whee! [Perez Hilton]
  • Madonna and Ed Hardy’s head designer, Christian Audigier, will team up on a line — we can expect “tattoo-inspired tee shirts and diamante encrusted bodices.” So, practical stuff. [Mirror]
  • Apparently, when England’s Prime Minister Gordan Brown and his wife visited D.C. recently, they brought Sasha and Malia dresses from TopShop! Our own Catherine is in London right now and we hope she brings us stuff back from TopShop too! [New York Times]

Does The World Really Need The Doodle Bra?

When I was a kid, I used puffy paint to decorate my jeans, T-shirts, and caps with peace signs and funny faces. Boy, was I behind the times. Now girls are custom-decorating their bras with markers?! The Doodle Bra package comes with a Doodle Bra, stencils, an idea booklet, and special Doodle Bra markers, which wash out, so a maturing young woman can create one-of-a-kind designs and patterns. I thought we were trying to teach young women to have some modesty, not to go around flashing their bras while exclaiming, “Look what I drew!” Also, what’s up with the woman in green in the drawing above who seems to be standing guard, making sure the Doodle Bras are sexy enough?

Where Are All The Style Icons At?!

Liz Jones, a columnist for the U.K.’s Daily Mail thinks our generation has a problem — we don’t have any style icons! Sure, we’ve got women like Michelle Obama and Kate Moss to look to for style inspiration, but, according to Jones, not one woman in the twentysomething age bracket really deserves the title of “Style Icon.” And she’s got an extra special bone to pick with those who claim model Agyness Deyn DOES.

“Maybe I am old and jaded, but I don’t think she has a clue about style at all. I hate that this messy, un-put together look is deemed somehow ‘London’. That Agy has now joined a long line of cutting edge Brits (Kate Moss, Amy Winehouse and the lamentable Peaches Geldof) who demonstrate how non-conformist they are by dressing like tramps. But what is even more galling is that Agy and her ilk have created so many young female doppelgangers. If I see another twentysomething in black cutoff tights under a mini-skirt worn with ballet flats, I will want to kill myself.”
