We can’t wait to see “Eat Pray Love” tonight, but in the meantime, Dogeared is keeping us occupied. The jewelry company has a line of delicate trinkets and jewels in honor of the film. We’re particularly taken with this purple macrame bracelet. The bright purple color mixes up standard metal chain bracelets. Wear it alone, with your watch, or with a bunch of bangle bracelets. We couldn’t agree with the message more: “I deserve something beautiful.” That’s right.
Have you been wishing you could look like lovely Betty Draper, or siren Joan Holloway, or any of the other sexy, stylish characters on “Mad Men”? Do you love ’60s fashion and wish you had access to the hit show’s wardrobe? Or, maybe you’d just love to outfit your apartment with some of the show’s cool mid-century props. Well, here’s your big chance. Beginning last night and going through the 22nd, furniture, props, and three iconic dresses worn on the show — including the green dress Joan wore in the infamous lawnmower episode — are up for auction on eBay. The 10-day celebrity auction will benefit the Lung Cancer Program and the City of Hope. “This auction offers Mad Men fans an exciting new way to connect with the series while helping to support City of Hope’s important work in research and treatment of lung cancer,” said Sandra Stern, the COO of TV for the show’s producer, Lionsgate. This is the sort of PR move Peggy might have come up with, don’t you think? Keep reading »
Gone are the days when shopping from an overseas website seemed absurd. Many, like the U.K.’s Miss Selfridge, offer flat-rate shipping, about $12 in this case, to the U.S. You no longer have to save your pennies for a shopping excursion to get the London look because these moderately priced, even with the exchange rate, items will be hand-delivered via a courier. But feel free to tell people you bought your fashions in Europe. We won’t tell. Keep reading »
I’m channeling my inner Stephen Colbert to offer a “tip of the hat” to Levi’s for advertisements that don’t make us wanna scream and pull our hair out. Walking to work this morning, I saw two print ads from their summer campaign that I just love. One depicts a man and a small child, presumably a father and son, and reads, “Everybody’s work is equally important.” The other depicts an older man standing with a young woman and a young man, with the same tag line. Wow, I thought. How cool that a clothing company would make such a progressive statement about gender? Keep reading »
Luxury lingerie designer Kiki De Montparnasse is having a sale and panties are only $85 now, ladies! (Sarcasm.) One Kiki item particularly puzzles me, not because it’s discounted, but because it exists at all: Kiki’s “Night Nurse” costume. Do people actually wear those get-ups for sexy bedtime role-playing?

Lately, we’ve been waxing philosophically, ahem, about pubic hair grooming and it’s time for me to throw in my two cents. About a week after Jessica wrote about her first bikini wax — after being the proud owner of a ’70s-style bush — I went in for my first wax, but unlike Jessica, I was committing myself to the full shebang.
