Get it? Because Jamie Chung used to be on “The Real World”! What? You didn’t know that? You mean I am the only person on Earth whose brain is essentially an Encyclopedia of Bunim-Murray Productions? Yes, Jamie Chung was one of seven strangers picked to live in a house on “The Real World: San Diego” back in 2004. She was normal and quiet and didn’t get into any trouble which is A) probably why you don’t remember her and B) why she’s actually a successful actress now (“The Hangover” series, “Once Upon A Time”) instead of appearing on her 10th season of “The Challenge.” AND she can afford to dress like a star now too. That bright blue leather jacket is nearly $600, while her purse is nearly $400. Too rich for my real world butt. But I found a bunch of similar and much more affordable items so that we can all dress like an ex-reality show star who’s gone on to bigger and better things. Keep reading »
The seemingly innocuous topic of Jay Z’s limited edition holiday collection in collaboration with Barneys turned rife with controversy in the past few weeks after the upscale NYC department store was accused of two separate racial profiling incidents in the last month alone. Everyone from Jon Stewart to Andre Leon Talley criticized the hip-hop mogul’s decision to go forth with the high-profile partnership, even after he announced that 100 percent of the proceeds from the collection would go to his Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation for low-income students.

A few months ago at my parents’ house I was rifling through a drawer full of tokens of my adolescence (read: a bunch of old stuff my mom has failed to throw away) and happened to discover a mood ring. It was in the shape of a dolphin and I was beside myself with glee. “I’m totally bringing mood rings back,” I declared, to myself, but my style resurgence was short-lived: I got a rash, obviously, which is what always happens to me. (“Is that scabies?,” my boyfriend asked me in alarm last week as I stretched my bare legs across his bed. Nope, I had just shaved that morning, that’s all.) Keep reading »

After giving up makeup for two weeks this summer, I had a realization: my usual makeup routine was way, way too complicated. Two weeks was enough to get used to the whole “zero-get-ready-time” thing, and along the way, I completely lost my tolerance for time-consuming cosmetics. Before my makeup fast, I was spending at least 20 to 30 minutes on my face every morning. These days it’s more like 5 to 10 minutes. And let me tell you: it’s awesome. If you’re looking to streamline your own makeup routine, read on for some tips… Keep reading »
- Victoria’s Secret model Jessica Hart is supposedly getting dumped by the brand after she publicly dissed Taylor Swift, who performed at this year’s VS Fashion Show. Hart told a reporter Swift “didn’t fit” at the occasion. Sources tell Page Six that Hart will no longer appear in VS catalogs or walk in future fashion shows. Yikes! Hart also said the invented the top knot, so clearly this woman needs some media training. [Page Six]

I blew my wad on a rental car so I could drive to Pennsylvania with Lucca for the Thanksgiving holiday, which means I am banned — BANNED — from doing any shopping on this Cyber Monday, no matter how good the deals may be. But that doesn’t mean I cannot live vicariously through the rest of you. Here are 15 items I would purchase if I were shopping today, which I am not, I swear, I swear, I swear.
