This triple braid is like one of those cookie-cake-pies you see on Pinterest that kind of freak you out, but you can’t help but want to try it anyway: it’s a braid within a braid within a braid. The good news about this hairstyle is that it’s much easier than baking a cookie cake into a pie — just braid your hair into three equal sections, then braid the three into one monster braid. Voila! Celebrate your new coif with a piece of PieCookieCake. [Hair Romance]
Alright, so it’s probably not the best outfit for klutzes, but how chic is this white-on-white-on-white look on model Karolina Kurkova? I am a huge fan of the monochromatic thing, for starters, but I love the subtle accent her red lips, black shades, silver bag and sweeeeeeeeeeeeet two-toned oxfords add. Yes, white stains easily, but you can also bleach that shit. I betcha Karolina has a bleach pen in her purse, and if she doesn’t, she should. Get the look after the jump! Keep reading »
Let me introduce you to my new best friend, the low block-heel sandal. She loves to take long walks in the park, window shop for hours at a time, flirt at happy hour, and go dancing at da club, but is still all business at the office. Although she only stands about two-inches tall, she always compliments my clothes, is reliable in a jam, and supports my every adventure! This summer, we will spend every waking hour together.

As a lady with more than a little redness on her face, concealer is one of my must-have beauty products. Concealers come in many forms, like sticks, tubes, and pots, but my particular favorite is a pen or wand. With a foundation wand, you can apply it directly onto your skin and pat it down with the applicator yourself — that way, you never have to touch your face with your dirty fingers. (Do I really need to remind you that touching your face is BAD for your skin?) Plus, it’s super easy to carry in your purse for touchups throughout your day. LORAC clearly had this in mind with their new Touch-Up To Go Concealer/Foundation Pen, which I’m happy to report is part of my daily beauty routine now. Keep reading »

Sky Ferreira’s new video for her song “I Blame Myself” is a fun one to watch, but it’s even more fun to shop. Shot in Compton, this ode to “early ’90s gangster rap videos” features the pop singer as the neighborhood’s queen bee, driving around with her crew in a hydraulic car. But she’s still got plenty of time for a dance breakdown or two. What makes this video extra special, however, is that absolutely everything Sky wears is available for purchase through SSENSE. Hmm, I’m feeling that red blouse. BRB… [SSENCE via Idolator]

I’ve been debating whether to jump on the overalls trend for a few months now and still haven’t bit the bullet and bought a pair. Everywhere I look, though, overalls are taunting me — at the vintage store I went to yesterday, in basically every issue of every lady mag recently, and on countless celebs whose pictures fill the paparazzi feeds. My biggest fear has been that overalls will just look ridiculous or dumpy on me and that I’ll look back and wonder why the hell I thought dressing like a farmer would be good look. But seeing at how these celebs have rocked the trend, I’m starting to think this trend doesn’t have to be one I’d regret trying. I’m especially into the way stylish women like Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo are wearing overalls that are more fitting than baggy, with cuffed ankles and cute little flats. Very chic! Hmm, maybe I’ll give this a try after all…
