Polka dots are sweet, but I prefer the diamond print on Lauren Conrad’s 1. State blouse — somehow it’s more adult. Find out where to get her exact shirt, plus similar printed flats and a large orange clutch below! Keep reading »
Jimmy Kimmel sent a camera crew to New York Fashion Week to ask people their opinions on made-up designers, and not one of them missed a beat in diving right into a lie about knowing all about Chandler Bing’s fashion line. Because the fashion world is borderline ridiculous, these unsuspecting folks also didn’t blink an eye when at the names of bullshit clothing lines by “designers” Betsy Ross, Phil Robertson and Antonin Scalia. Facepalm. [Death & Taxes]
Fun fact about me: I find showering really tedious, boring and annoying. Some days I wake up and I just can’t. That 10 minutes standing in the tub could be spent getting a little extra sleep, or reading Twitter while I drink my coffee, or having a really quick morning masturbation session (truthfully, I’m a before bed masturbator, but you get the point). The only real problem with skipping a shower in the morning is that my hair often looks like a hot mess when I wake up. The roots are greasy, my bangs have a mind of their own and I always have this crazy cowlick/hair bump situation on the left side of my crown. On days like this, I usually pull it back into a haphazard bun, but even that is hit or miss — plus, I’m sick of having the same go-to bad hair day style. With that in mind, I considered the variety of bad hair day problems and found 10 hairstyles to try the next time greasy roots, pesky cowlicks or limp strands threaten to ruin your day.
We’ve already tested the Eylure line of false lashes once, in a controlled, relatively stable, indoor environment. Still, after Sophie’s Beauty Test Drive, I was inspired to give them a whirl myself. Sure, these things look great when you’re sitting in your apartment, straightening your hair and paging through Seamless, but I wanted to try them out in extreme conditions. My guiding principle for this Beauty Test Drive was “What would Kim Kardashian do?” Embracing her doe-eyed optimism, I took the Eylure lashes to a place where they probably haven’t been before — the beach. Here’s how it went. Keep reading »
Model Melanie Gaydos was born with ectodermal dysplasia, a genetic disorder that caused her to experience over 30 surgeries in her young life. The disease, which impacts pores, hair, teeth and nails was enough to deal with at a young age, but Gaydos also found herself in a tough family environment growing up. She began modeling about three years ago in gorgeous and striking photos that only she could bring to life. Now, she hopes to take her modeling skills to runway work. This interview is part of The What’s Underneath Project, which aims to prove that style is about so much more than a person’s outfit choice. The series asks subjects to undress as the interview progresses, getting more vulnerable in both their appearance and their responses as they go — and it’s beautiful. The interviews touch an honest place that some people never reach even in conversations with closest friends. Gaydos’ segment is especially moving and brave. [Huffington Post]
In case a bad hair day threatens to ruin your photos, the Selfie Brush does double duty as a hair tamer and phone case. That way, you don’t have to bother to put your brush down and then pick up your phone before taking a selfie, which will save you approximately three whole seconds. It also allows you to answer your phone mid-styling by simply flipping the brush around to chat, or answering the call via voice command and using speaker phone. Is the world seriously at a point where we need to worry about consolidating our various forms of vanity? As the product’s website reminds us, the brush is “easy to find in a pocket book” (yes, a pocket book) and the “perfect social media tool.” It also provides nifty instructions on how to take the perfect selfie which includes showing off your “luscious locks” and “a soft and playful smile,” as well as incorporating the right filter, lighting, and “slimming angles.” Hey, at least they remind us to “ditch the duck face”! If it suits you, you can buy the selfie brush here, but I think I’ll be sticking with regular phone cases. Since I kind of feel like a bully now, I will say this much: that brush handle makes it much easier to raise your phone high above your head for prime photographing angles without dropping it on your face.
