11 Tips For Scoring At Thrift Stores

Despite it being shopping season right now, none of us are buying as much we did last year — at least not from regular stores. While the retail industry is in its worst slump in 35 years, resale and thrift shops have reported increases in sales. I have definitely contributed to that rise; Besides a new winter coat (and underwear, of course), I haven’t bought any new new clothes since this summer. I even went to a super fancy wedding in a dress that cost $3! Below, find out how to work the Goodwill racks like a pro from three highly successful thrifters… Keep reading »

Fashion Extras: Cold Weather Accessories

When the cold weather hits, looking hot isn’t an easy thing to achieve. In many cases, an attempt to stay warm can result in a Marshmallow Man phenomenon, something that wasn’t even stylish in 1984. Check out these scarves, gloves, and other winter warmers that will dress you up, but not necessarily weigh you down. Keep reading »

Lindsay Lohan Finally Has A Hit

Her acting career may be in the crapper, but Lindsay Lohan’s fashion line is a hit. She’s kicking ass with her fast-selling debut legwear line, created through her company, 6126 (a name inspired by Lohan’s idol, Marilyn Monroe, whose birthday was June 1, 1926). Despite a price tag that rivals that of some designer jeans, Lohan’s line of leggings is selling like hotcakes in high-end stores like Henri Bendel, Nordstrom, Intermix, and Lisa Kline. “They’re blowing off the shelves,” says Jill Lowe, publicist for upscale Hollywood boutique Intuition. There are 35 styles in various colors and patterns, but the best-seller is the Mr. President, which at $132 is also the most expensive. “The leggings are made of top quality materials,” says 6126 publicist Ali Brubaker. “Many have accents like 100 percent leather patches and 100 percent cashmere leggings which also contribute to the price range.” (We’re betting the high price has more to do with the line’s famous designer than leather accents.) Lucky for Lohan, her fashion foray might turn into an entire brand. “We are building a lifestyle brand that represents timeless glamour,” Brubaker says. “Our hope is to organically [roll] out additional product categories over the next several years.” Lohan may not be able to score plum movie roles (or any movie roles, for that matter), but at least she’s got a future in “timeless glamour.” Who knew?

Christmas Trees For Your Studio Apartment

There’s nothing like the smell of fresh pine this time of year, but having a real Christmas tree comes with some downsides: those freaking needles get everywhere, the thing needs to be watered even though it’s dead, and none of us have the space for a 9″ beauty. The fake options below will make your apartment festive this December without the drawbacks. Just make sure to buy a pine-scented candle so you don’t miss out on the smell of Douglas Fir.

The Last 31 Days Of 2008: Try A New Recipe

My BF has been trying to persuade me to cook for him lately because he often cooks for me. I’m not really interested in cooking, so I know it would mean a lot to him if I made the effort. I’ve decided to prepare this recipe for vegetarian lasagna because it fits all his dietary restrictions. I’m thinking I’ll make it for his birthday dinner in January. But first, I’ll have to try it on a guinea pig a.k.a. Mom this month. I think you should also try a new recipe this month because a dish of food is always an appreciated gift at a holiday party.
