Crave: Fur-trimmed Parka

We’ve finally had to admit that it’s cold outside and our sweater coat will no longer keep us warm. We spent this weekend looking for the perfect coat. You know, a coat that is stylish and substantial enough to keep us toasty on blustery days, but not so thick that we’ll look like Frosty the Snowman. This parka from The Gap fits the bill. The design of this parka makes it perfect for dressing down or up. We love the idea of pairing it with an LBD, tights and ankle boots. The faux fur trim makes it perfect for any animal activist. Plus, it’s on sale now, so it won’t break the bank. [$103.50, The Gap] Keep reading »

Peace Signs: Still Going Strong At 50

Back in 1958, textile designer and commercial artist Gerald Holton designed a symbol for peace activists to put on their protest posters. The image he created was a combination of the letters N, for nuclear, and D, for disarmament, and it still represents peace 50 years later. The popularity and connotation of the peace sign has changed over time. It was used by Vietnam war protesters in the ’60s, and 30 years after that, my friends and I wore peace sign necklaces just because they looked cool. In celebration of the symbol’s anniversary, designers such as Diane von Furstenberg, Proenza Schouler, and Alexander Wang have designed outfits inspired by the peace sign. (If you live in NYC, check them out in the windows at Barneys.) Below, 11 peace products that are more chic than hippie… Keep reading »

Crave: Satellite Rings

We love the modern look of these Satellite rings by Anne Kiel, which are made in gorgeous, bright colors with sterling silver and resin. They’d look awesome on your left ring finger, the one everyone is always glancing at when you’re at Home Depot looking at tools and they’re wondering why you’re there alone, and you have to explain, “No, no, this isn’t a wedding ring! It’s a satellite ring. It’s awesome and means I can come to Home Depot alone and find things that, sure, I can’t lift into my car but so what? I’ve got this great non-symbolic ring and I’m wearing it with pride!” Or, you could just wear it on another finger. [$91, Supermarket HQ] Keep reading »

Cover Your Walls In Fishnet Wallpaper

I adore this fishnet-style wallpaper designed by Jon Sherman and created by Flavor Paper. The hand-printed paper’s pattern is composed of the stockinged legs of retro ladies, and old school bustiers and panties decorate the squares where the design crisscrosses. The available colors are hot: fireball, gold, electric raspberry, and licorice. Unfortunately, at $150 for a 27″ x 15′ roll, this may not be the perfect wall covering for die-hard recessionistas. But can’t a girl splurge everywhere once in a while? [Cool Hunting] Keep reading »

Crave: Maxine Dear Belts And Buckles

If we dreamed in color as richly saturated as these gorgeous custom hand-dyed leather belts from Maxine Dear, we’re sure we’d never want to wake up. Paired with their awesome belt buckles, made from re-purposed children’s books, and worn with a pair of dark jeans, we’re sure we’d never want to get undressed, either… much to our boyfriend’s chagrin.

Barbie’s Big Birthday

Barbie is turning 50 next year (doesn’t she look good for her age?), and her birthday celebration is going to be huge. She’s getting a line of beauty products, collaborating with Vera Wang on a wedding dress and Jeremy Scott on a capsule collection, and getting her own show at New York Fashion Week in February. For the show, 50 designers will produce life-sized outfits inspired by the doll — oh, to be a style icon. We’re curious whether the models who will walk in Barbie’s fashion show will all resemble her. If so, they’re going to have a hard time finding anyone, because even models don’t have her kind of proportions. Check out Barbie’s many, many, many looks over the years, after the jump… Keep reading »
