Harper’s Bazaar Knows A Good Pose

Good things come in threes. Maybe that’s why Harper’s Bazaar chose the same pose to model full camel-colored trousers three times in the August issue. (Full disclosure: The look Cameron Diaz is wearing is actually a Chloe jumpsuit, but nonetheless has the same effect as the other two pairs of trousers.) This possible mistake isn’t something you’d expect from such an expensive glossy. Keep reading »

Be A Virtual Clothes Whore With The Retail Therapy Game


Know how you kind of want to shop all the time, but there isn’t enough money in the world to support that habit? Well, we kind of thought it might be just us with those issues until we heard about Retail Therapy, an online game centered around virtual consumerism. Retail Therapy launched quietly as a Facebook app last week, grabbing about 4,000 users in just a few days and making us feel a little better about our shopping obsession. If you, too, want to get in on the game, here’s how it works: after choosing your avatar (they’re all ladies, so get comfortable with your feminine side, boys), you get $2,500 with which to stock your boutique, design clothes or keep your own closet looking classy. Stock will update frequently to reflect what’s actually going on in the fashion world, too, which is quite cool. Better still, however, are the partnerships that Retail Therapy has forged with brands like The Gap and Diane von Furstenberg. Through the game, it’s possible to browse e-DVF dresses and click through to the real thing. We’d write more about it, but our avatars are jonesing for some espadrilles. [Tech Crunch] Keep reading »

Quick Beauty Tip: Drugstore Vitamin-E Oil Vs. The Fancy Stuff

It’s no secret that vitamin E is super healthy for your body and skin thanks to its antioxidant properties. You’ll find it’s often a nourishing ingredient in lip balms, but lately we’ve been seeing some great skin care results from the natural product in its purest form. It all started when we tried out a super fancy face oil, one like Bobbi Brown’s Extra Face Oil, which retails for a fairly pricey $60. We kind of prefer the straight vitamin E-only drugstore variety, however (which is also helpful if you’re allergic to nuts—facial oils blended by beauty companies will often be a mix including almond extract or oil). Dabbing a bit on has helped clear up acne slightly, but better yet, helps it heal faster. After a few weeks of treatment, a few of our brown sun spots have faded noticeably. (Sunscreen, always!) Best yet, a bottle from the vitamin section will cost you less than $20, and keeps for ages. (Kind of like oil for the Chanukah lamp that you think is only going to last for a little bit, but instead lasts forever!) [$14.56, MaxVite] Keep reading »

Gloves That Nail It

These nail gloves might be all design-snobby, but we could actually see them coming in handy for scratching itches and opening tough packaging on cold days. [AnOther Magazine] Keep reading »
