Last week, we told you about the first book in the new Lorien Legacies, I Am Number Four, and asked you to tell us which Legacy, or superpower, you’d like to have. In exchange for an I Am Number Four prize pack, we also asked you to tell us how you’d use your Legacy for good and evil. I’m sure it was as difficult choosing one superpower as it was choosing one winner, but josephine won for this comment: Keep reading »
Cue the eyeroll. A British celeb style website called MyCelebrityFashion polled men on their girlfriends’ clothes and asked, “What trends make women look promiscuous?” Because you can tell a slut by what she’s wearing, duh.

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 »
