These days, you can ask anyone for style advice. Ask Rachel Bilson what sunglasses will look good on your enormous head. And now, you can consult Kate Bosworth on your accessorizing needs. The actress has teamed up with her stylist Cher Coulter and the shopping website JewelMint to create a new jewelry-buying experience. How it works: You take a fashion quiz to determine your personal style, and each month, “Kate, Cher and the JewelMint team will recommend personalized jewelry.” It’s a subscription based service, so if you want to purchase something (at 70 percent off retail) you have to pay $29.99 per month (but you’re not charged for a month you don’t make a purchase). As a member, you’ll also have access to Kate and Cher’s “custom designs.” I’m skeptical about services like this.

The Neiman Marcus Christmas Book is out! We had to ask ourselves what could possibly top last year’s cupcake car, and have found our answer in an edible, life-size gingerbread playhouse by Dylan’s Candy Bar, which retails for $15,000. So what does $15K get you? Three-hundred and eighty-one pounds of gourmet gingerbread, 517 pounds of icing (which is how heavy you will be if you attempt to eat it), and thousands of fixings including “giant cookies, lollipops, gummies, mints, gumdrops, and (of course) a candy-encrusted roof.” Your child’s new abode also comes partially furnished with a lollipop tree inside. We imagine the recipient of this gift is either a complete Candy Land freak (with loaded parents) or this kid. [Neiman Marcus] Keep reading »
If you grew up in the ’90s, then you know that Banana Republic used to be the one-stop shop for the urban pioneer who wanted to look as if she went on safari. This Heritage Printed Canvas Tote not only continues our canvas bag obsession from the summer, but also reminds us of our youth, when dirt was OK and everything didn’t have to be pristine. The rich textured fabric looks like it was recycled from a coffee sack, and the leather handles only add to the authentic travel feel. This is a classic and sensible tote you’ll want to hold on to for all your excursions … even in the concrete jungle.
