The Gilded Lily is the tasty cocktail of New York Fashion Week. Created by The London Bar by Gordon Ramsay at The London NYC hotel, The Gilded Lily is a chic and sophisticated combination of prosecco, fresh strawberries, St. Germain, and grains of paradise to cut the sweetness and add a little spice. If you’re in NYC, then stop by The London Bar, near Lincoln Center, for The Gilded Lily, which is priced at $17. But if you’re not in NYC, don’t fret. We have the recipe! Keep reading »
Ever noticed how the minute you get your hands on some money, you find a ton of things you’d like to spend it on? Well, that’s the inspiration behind “Blowin’ Money Fast,” a dark metallic green nail lacquer, from the fall Ginger + Liz Colour Collection. This is the perfect emerald shade to transition from summer’s bold nail colors to fall’s dark neutrals. Plus, this organic and eco-friendly nail polish is a great guilt-free way to blow through some cash.
JNY Style Guy Lloyd Boston recommends every woman own a classic white shirt in his latest book, The Style Checklist, which details the 100 items every woman needs in her wardrobe. And I couldn’t agree more. A classic white shirt looks refined with a suit, but also makes a chic partner to a pair of jeans or cropped leggings. I happen to think Jones New York’s No-Iron Easy Care Classic White Fitted Shirt is the best available. It stays crisp throughout the day without needing ironing or starching. And what’s even better is that the 100 percent cotton Easy Care shirt doesn’t require any special maintenance — no dry cleaning! Just toss it in the washer. I prefer to let mine hang to dry. After trying several lesser priced white shirts that became dingy after a few wears and required a hot and heavy iron, I’m happy to pay a moderate price for a quality item that holds up through a ton of wear.

Looks like Lanvin’s H&M collection may be getting some competition. The Gap has just announced that it will work with the House of Valentino to produce a special collection, due out late November. There aren’t too many details yet about what we can expect, although the designers for the project, Valentino creative directors Maria Grazia Chiui and Pier Paolo Piccioli, said, “We are very pleased that Gap thought of us as a partner for this intimate project, as it brings together the iconic world of Valentino and Gap’s fashion essentials. In this way, Valentino and Gap synthesise the current trend of combining luxury with basics.” Keep reading »
At first glance, we thought this was the latest in chunky jewelry. But no, despite its chain and bow accents, this is in fact a sex toy for women. Called Sono Love, the flat, slightly hand-shaped device is modeled after the form of an orchid. With contours to fit a lady’s you-know-what, you control the Sono with a hand, dictating pressure and movement. And we guess you could also wear it around your neck. Which would a) be gross, and b) please don’t. [Yanko Design] Keep reading »
