Do Not Want: The Selfie Brush

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.

Anna Wintour Answers 73 Questions (While Wearing Sunglasses Indoors)

Nuclear Wintour Will See You Now

Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of Vogue, is the latest star/victim of the magazine’s ”73 Things” interview series. The normally private and icy editor-in-chief seems cool with poking fun at herself, so maybe she’s human after all! Spoiler alert: she actually approves of Brooklyn, admires the gladiator-like quality of tennis players (which she clearly channels), and throws some trademark shade when a model brings up her least-favorite fashion word. Oh yeah, and all those rumors about her? They’re true. [Fashionista]

Shop The NYFW Trend: Everything’s Coming Up Palm Prints!

One of my favorite trends out of NYFW so far are the array of leafy palm-prints from designers like Tracy Reese and Yigal Azrouel. From full-on palm trees to more abstract, close-up fronds, palm prints are a sophisticated alternative to regular ol’ florals. And you don’t have to wait until spring to wear them — palm prints are already everywhere in stores, so what are you waiting for?

The Best Of NYFW: J. Crew Loosens Up

Nearly every day I’m wearing something on my person that came from J. Crew. I am a disciple; an unofficial, uncompensated walking advertisement; a diehard fan of their toothpick jeans, Capri flip-flops, Everly pumps and assorted overpriced sweatshirts that I refuse to buy unless they’re on sale. And come spring, I will no doubt be adding at least a handful of the items shown as part of the brand’s NYFW collection. Spoiler alert: Tight, constricting fabrics and silhouettes are out, and baggy — baggy shorts, baggy shirts, baggy jackets — are IN.

The Best Of NYFW: Rebecca Minkoff’s Breezy Pastels & Beachy Stripes

The Best Of NYFW: Rebecca Minkoff’s Breezy Pastels AND Beachy Stripes

Hey guys, I’m off to Cinque Terre in Italy and all I’m bringing with me is an Italian dictionary, a camera and a suitcase full of all the clothes from Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Ciao, prometto di scrivere!

Just kidding. I’m not going to Cinque Terre and I certainly don’t have a suitcase full of Minkoff’s silky pastel dresses and tanks or airy striped shirts and skirts. But a girl can dream. Check out some of my faves from the collection below!

The Best Of NYFW: Rachel Comey’s Raw-Hemmed Glamour

The Best Of NYFW: Rachel Comey's Raw-Hemmed Glamour

Rachel Comey consistently makes clothes for the most glamorous arts and crafts teacher you’ve ever met in your life. Her latest collection shown at NYFW is no exception. Tons of volume — one can’t be too encumbered when in the midst of a macrame project! — a mixture of neutrals and nature-plucked colors (I love the red and purple moments, especially), and fabric edges left raw rather than perfectly hemmed, like her muse got fed up and went at them with a pair of sheers. Wearing clothes like this in real life is all about proportions. A voluminous swing dress works best at a mini length with heels — heeled clogs, preferably. Check out some of my fave pieces from Rachel Comey’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection below!
