Add this to a list of things that make me want to puke, alongside tween thongs, padded tween bras, and Miss Bimbo — soft and snuggly hooker heels for your baby! Oh, but they’re supposed to be FUNNY. Yeah. No. I swear nipple tassles for toddlers aren’t far off. Better get on that idea quick! [Heelarious.com via DListed] Keep reading »
Technically I am against the gladiator sandal trend. I think they look stupid on 90% of the population. But these high-heeled gladiators are something I can get behind because they’re not obnoxiously strappy, they give you some lift which counteracts the stumpy-leg affect of most strappy flats and they’re wedges, which means they are easy to walk in. Sold. [$89, NineWest.com] Keep reading »

Last time I checked, cooking for groups on a hot summer day was on my “Top Ten list of Things I Don’t Want To Do”…until I was stuck with an apartment full of people to feed on a sweltering weekend in NYC and nowhere to hide. Out popped this pasta dish that actually peaks in flavor when it’s served at room temp. If you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, refrigerate the pasta and once you’re ready for re-service, let it sit out for 15 minutes before giving it a good stir and maybe another drizzle of olive oil and some salt and pepper. And pssst – this is one of those recipes that sneaks in under $15. Keep reading »
Depending on your values, you might think spending more than $1,000 on a handbag is ludicrous. Or you might think a quilted Chanel bag is an investment. If you fall into the latter category, how would you feel about an $18,000 fly-fishing rod? Chanel is offering such a rod, along with a set of monochrome Chanel flies (complete with the double “C” logo on gossamer wings and a quilted black leather box). At first I thought, Coco Chanel must be turning over in her grave! but The Guardian reports that she was a tomboy who fished while dating the Duke of Westminster in the ’20s.
