Here’s a guaranteed way to secure your place as the coolest kid in school: Show up the first day with designer supplies by Marc Jacobs (watch out, Lisa Frank). Following the launch of his bookstore in NYC’s West Village (adorably named Bookmarc), MJ has created a small collection of back-to-school supplies in a similar bookish theme. Stock your desk with colored pencils, notebook-like storage tins, or even Marc Jacobs-branded Sharpies. Better yet, get the whole kit ‘n kaboodle with one of the pouches pre-filled with colorful pencils, pens, paper clips, erasers, and other note-taking accoutrement. Luckily, the prices aren’t that outlandish. The kits are $11-17, a plastic case with mini-colored pencils is $8, and a simple pack of red pencils is $9, which, OK is a lot to pay for pencils. But, small change for all the Gossip Girls out there.

“I’m a Virgo and the sign is a virgin. So when I was 16, I got the word virgin tattooed on my wrist, thinking I was sooo deep and cool. And now I just look really weird having virgin written across my wrist and I have to explain it.”
– Nicole Richie, a mother of two, is definitely not a virgin. Sadly, I know someone else, who isn’t a Virgo, who also has “virgin” tattooed on her. Do you have a tattoo that you regret? [Starpulse.com] Keep reading »
It’s quite easy to get into a watch rut. Most people aren’t expected to have seven timepieces for seven days. But why not have as much fun with your watch as you do with other jewelry and accessories? The Liz Claiborne Slim Black Watch is a mod take on a classic silhouette. Whimsical lettering livens up the timepiece, which would look fun peeking out from your blazer sleeve or would look chic with a plain T-shirt. It’s time to switch up your everyday look!
Holy models scaling buildings! And here you thought being a model was a luxurious job where all you had to do was sit around looking pretty. For the beginning of High Street Fashion Week in London, ladies in designer goods participated in a “vertical fashion show,” seductively sliding down Oxford Street buildings by harness and wire. Some of the models actually had stunt experience, like Amanda Green, a double for Halle Berry, who told Metro, “I’m used to doing big action stunt sequences but the sight of four-inch heels and a five-story vertical catwalk was enough to push me over the edge.”
We hope they got paid extra. [U.K. Metro] Keep reading »
