Turn On Your Brights!

That kooky Brit, Sienna Miller, was seen frolicking around dreary, gray London in fire engine-red buckled shoes. Brilliant move! There’s no easier way to sass up an outfit than with a pair of wow-colored shoes. Six we love, after the jump…

Makeup: What’s With the Kid Stuff?

Most little girls (and even some boys!) have a moment where they play in mom’s makeup, pretending to be a grown-up woman. But is the reverse true as well: do grown women like to play in makeup that looks to be for little girls?

Barbie for Stila, featuring makeup mimicking Barbie’s looks over the…

David Beckham*, what hath you wrought?

First, the New York Rangers’ left wing Sean Avery interned at Vogue and blogged for about everything from what’s in his closet (Dries Van Noten, Chanel) to what it’s like fracturing one’s spleen on the ice.

Ooo Wee Ooo, Look Just Like Buddy Holly

Way before MGMT, Weezer, Kurt Cobain, and even Bob Dylan, Buddy Holly made nerd rock cool with his iconic black-rimmed glasses and according The Guardian the dweeb look is BACK. Channel this legend’s look—who died 50 years ago this month—and hopefully his visionary spirit with a pair of these geeky-glam specs.

1. These slim…

Study Says Makeover Shows Make Us Feel Bad

Bad boyfriends…frenemies…makeover TV shows. One of the fundamental questions of human nature is why do we love stuff that may not be so good for our self-esteem?

How To Buy Affordable Art

So you can finally afford an “It” bag (though you loathe the term), a vacation to another continent, and a couch that doesn’t require assembly. So why pray tell do you still have that sappy Klimt poster hanging over your bed? It’s time to outfit your pad with some REAL art. I’m not suggesting you…

Girl Talk: Why I Love My Gray Hair

My first gray hairs were cause for celebration. My mother, politically liberal, but parentally strict, had forbidden me from coloring my hair “until you start going gray.” So when, at 14, I was able to show her a few silver hairs buried in my thick black mop, I was overjoyed.

How To Take A Great Picture

Whenever I get on Facebook I feel depressed. I seem to spend most of my time untagging myself in pictures so my third grade boyfriend doesn’t see me looking like I have four chins and a lazy eye. To make matters worse, it seems everybody else is beautiful, photogenic and having The Best Time Ever.
