Three reasons we love nail polish:
- It’s something you can change about your look in a few minutes time.
- It’s a cheap and easy way to add something special to your wardrobe or outfit theme.
- The trends are always changing, making it a pleasant surprise to find that gray actually looks really sophisticated on your hands.
This fall, we’re cultivating our nail polish palette with muted hues of gray and brown, earthy tones, and some rich pinkish reds to remind us of the changing leaves. Check out our suggestions after the jump! Keep reading »
No more dinette sets or speedboats for TV game show “The Price is Right.” Now they’re featuring lots of American Apparel
clothing for bidding games. How much would you bid on the selection? (We were pretty surprised to see how far-off our imaginary guess was.) Anyhow, we don’t know which to lament more—the downfall of American Apparel or of “The Price is Right.” We miss the days of Bob and Winnebago trailers. [YouTube

As Ashlee Simpson became really excited at the US Open, her hubby, Pete Wentz, tried to pretend he wasn’t with her. He gave the crowd a blank stare while repeatedly thinking: “Please sit down. Please sit down. Don’t let them realize we’re together. I’d never let my hair look like that.” [NYC, 9/7/10] Keep reading »
While she’s knocked up, Lily Allen is taking a break from the limelight (sort of) to open a vintage boutique with her sister, Sarah, which they’re calling Lucy in Disguise. The girls’ London shop isn’t quite ready to open yet (it will open later this month), so in the meantime, they’ve set up a pop-up boutique in Selfridges to give the public a taste of what’s to come.

Here’s a guaranteed way to secure your place as the coolest kid in school: Show up the first day with designer supplies by Marc Jacobs (watch out, Lisa Frank). Following the launch of his bookstore in NYC’s West Village (adorably named Bookmarc), MJ has created a small collection of back-to-school supplies in a similar bookish theme. Stock your desk with colored pencils, notebook-like storage tins, or even Marc Jacobs-branded Sharpies. Better yet, get the whole kit ‘n kaboodle with one of the pouches pre-filled with colorful pencils, pens, paper clips, erasers, and other note-taking accoutrement. Luckily, the prices aren’t that outlandish. The kits are $11-17, a plastic case with mini-colored pencils is $8, and a simple pack of red pencils is $9, which, OK is a lot to pay for pencils. But, small change for all the Gossip Girls out there.
