So to preface this post, I want to make sure to convey that a woman’s style (or man’s style for that matter) or lack there of, should never be a topic covered by political pundits. It was mega annoying to hear Chris Matthews and the gang analyze Hillary Clinton’s blazers in the same breath that they discussed her health care policy. Though Michelle Obama isn’t running for office, we couldn’t help but notice she’s got some serious style that definitely brings to mind Jackie Kennedy’s fierceness. When she fist-bumped Barack on Tuesday (a moment which made me think these two probably have a vibrant sex life and frankly also made me salivate a little), I was like, “Damn, is she wearing a studded belt?” I’m sorry, but that is just cool. So, with that in mind, I decided to see what other fashion inspirations come courtesy of the possible future First Lady. Three looks, and how to get them, after the jump… Keep reading »
Sin is in, sweetie. And it’s all been put together in one silver quilted boxset of Absolutely Fabulous episodes and specials written by the funniest comedy team from across the pond, Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders. From flashing off the Eiffel Tower to snorting cocaine off work papers, with almost 24 hours worth of hanging out with Britcoms boozin’, trend chasin’, pill poppin’, LaCroix lovin’ cougars, Patsy and Edina, you might need to check into rehab — but your vocabulary will grow to include “sweetie darling”, “ciggy”, and “champagne fridge”.

You might think summer starts when the temperature finally reaches 80 degrees Fahrenheit, your roof deck opens up, and the beaches start charging admission, but you’re wrong. Summer doesn’t actually begin until you put on a fresh pair of flip-flops. Whether they’re the cheap plastic ones from a drug store or a work-appropriate leather pair, or a fancy bejeweled pair, flip-flops are the shoes of the season. Here are 10 that will let your feet take in the fresh air and sun – just don’t forget to paint your toes. We like a bright, punchy coral color like Coral Reef by Essie. Keep reading »
We’re not sure if we actually do crave this, because it’s something we need to try. We are HORRIBLE at painting our own nails, which is why we go see Susan down the street from our office every few weeks. But it would be nice to save some bucks and be able to give ourselves a streak-free polish without getting hot pink all over our knuckles and coffee table and couch cushions. So yeah, Sally Hansen, we are going to try your ingenius nail pen and see if it really makes home manicures easier. [$8.49, Walgreens.com] Keep reading »
We didn’t wait and certainly don’t expect/want you to, but we just can’t help but think it would be really funny to wear these sweats to bed, with our boyfriend, to whom we are not married and living in sin. Because what says “Abstinence Rules!” like a big ol’ message on your butt? (Thanks to Boinkology for the link!) [$16.99, KMart.com] Keep reading »
French fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent died yesterday of a brain tumor at the age of 71. YSL epitomized crazy, chic, snooty (and I mean that in a good way) French style and pioneered the lady pantsuit. If we were still using the term, we would call him fierce. [Bloomberg.com] Keep reading »

The hoops-head Philly outfit’s just opened their e-doors, serving up tees like “First Team All-Hood”, their NCAA spin on the five-name shirt (including “Jalen & Chris & Juwan & Jimmy & Ray”), and “What Happens in Colorado Stays in Colorado”, which, if it doesn’t refer to Kobe, presupposes that something happens in Colorado. Pick up the duds at Undrcrwn.com. Keep reading »
Last week I provided date-night ensemble ideas inspired by images from Sex and the City and now that the day is finally here, I’ve decided to go into a bit more depth with fashion rules and guidelines inspired by TV’s most beloved fab foursome. For six seasons, these ladies taught us to adopt an ‘anything goes’ approach to fashion, among other things — though we still haven’t forgiven Patricia Field for those giant flower pins.
