Art School Confidential

It’s not often a girl can pull off purple and yellow in one outfit. Or green and orange. Or red and turquoise. Or … you get the idea. But you won’t have to worry about clashing if all the colors of the rainbow are on one adorable color wheel. This 22k gold pendant hangs from…

If You Must Write, Use This Pen

There aren’t many opportunities to use an actual pen nowadays: Most companies offer online bill pay, smart phones contain an appointment book and notepad, and ATMs don’t require deposit envelopes anymore. But every once in a while, you might want to send a handwritten note or greeting card, instead of an e-card. On those rare…

Touch Screen-Friendly Gloves

The downside to texting in winter? Freezing fingertips. The upside? Cute fingerless gloves that let you show off your manicure (added bonus). We’re digging these ribbed cashmere-blend “glovelettes” from J.Crew for their extra-long sleeves, which add warmth on days when you don’t have a long-sleeve layer on under your coat. Or, use them to extend…

A Dessert With A Little Kick!

A glass of wine and a bowl of fruity sorbet make a mouth-watering dessert. But did you know you can have both tastes for the price of one? Wine Cellar Sorbet infuses its sorbets with extracts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Champagne, white wine, Pinot Noir, Riesling, ruby port, sake, and red wine. The result is a…

Moccasins Meant For Showing Off

When the colder seasons come around, we go into heavy hibernation mode, building blanket forts and watching movies and only leaving the house for work, medical emergencies and, if we’re feeling really motivated, food. We’re not ashamed to admit that we’ve worn our ratty slippers out in public on more than one occasion. These gorgeou…

Tasty Edible Art

We’re not big sugar cookie lovers at The Frisky–most we’ve tried tasted awful and were too hard. But after sampling Jenni’s Cookies, we’ve realized sugar cookies are quite tasty when done right. Jenni’s Cookies have the perfect amount of sugar and aren’t too sweet. Plus, they’re beautiful! Each cookie is hand-painted–not frosted–with royal icing i…

A Ring That Won’t Leave Pinky Lonely

Unless you’re in the mafia, the pinky often gets left out when you accessorize. And you know what? It’s tired of being passed over just so your ring finger can wear some wedding ring, whatever, like that’s important. Now you can adorn both digits with this double ring by Slow and Steady Wins the Race.

Style Stealer: Sienna Miller’s Pastel Autumn Look

While everyone else was out shopping for brown, mustard, and green corduroys, Sienna Miller went for pastel pink. In this outfit she demonstrates how to mesh three seasons into one outfit. She took the color of the pants from spring, the knit sweater from autumn, and the peep-toe shoes from summer. It’s a look that’…

The Look Of Alexander McQueen For Cheap

This digital printed T-shirt by MNG by Mango is phenomenal for three reasons: It features a laser-cut yoke and appliqué, which are sexy in a nude color; the print is pretty and dark at the same time, with ultra-realistic birds, snakes, and butterflies; it is reminiscent of the late Alexander McQueen. We can picture thi…

Cheapskate: Leopard-Print Shoes, Boots, And Bags For Less

The above objects of desire — Christian Louboutin’s Big Lips Booty boots, Valentino’s Leopard Hair Calf Bow Tote, and Lanvin’s Leopard-Print Knee Boot — all cost way more than $1,000! And while leopard print continues to be a big trend, we can’t justify spending a month’s rent and food allowance on boots or a bag.

Not Your Little Sister’s Spin The Bottle Game

We haven’t played Spin the Bottle since college, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some boys we’d like an excuse to kiss. Enter Jimmyjane’s “adult” Spin the Bottle game, which features a bottle filled with strips of paper instructing the spinner on how to make her next move. Some of the dares are innocent, while…

Banana Republic Returns To Safari

If you grew up in the ’90s, then you know that Banana Republic used to be the one-stop shop for the urban pioneer who wanted to look as if she went on safari. This Heritage Printed Canvas Tote not only continues our canvas bag obsession from the summer, but also reminds us of our youth,…

A Remedy For The Earring Blahs

It’s really easy to get a case of the earring blahs. You love a pair so much that you wear them everyday until they become boring to you.

Cheapskate: Capes & Ponchos For $100 Or Less

Capes and ponchos are not only very in this fall, but are also quite practical, which — let’s face it — fashion often isn’t. Capes and ponchos allow room for layering and can keep you dry on a rainy day. But since this is quite possibly a fleeting trend, here are some capes and poncho…

Fashion, Music, And Forbidden Love

“Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky,” the true story of forbidden romance between two of the most creative minds of the 20th century, is out on Blu-ray and DVD today. Roger Ebert said this film, which was directed by renowned French filmmaker Jan Kounen, is an excellent biopic. It stars Anna Mouglalis, a former Chanel model,…

Get Seduced By Wildfox’s Love Potion Tee

We’ve never tried love potion, but we imagine the problem with it would be that a) it runs out, and b) it doesn’t actually work. What is completely charming us, however, is Wildfox’s “Love Potion No. 9″ T-shirt (which, unlike love potion, is reusable). With a soft texture and oversized fit, the graphics are the…

Silver Tie Affair

For rocking the business look, you have two options: dress in a boring skirt suit or play hardball with the boys and go the menswear route. If, that is, you actually know how to tie a tie — do you? Otherwise, try this cheeky silver necktie necklace by Brooklyn-based jewelry company Metal Sugar. The silver…

Cool Jewels

We’re not big fans of diamonds — too conflict-y and we tend to lose anything nice we have. That’s why we love these Cool Jewels Ice Cube Trays. The trays make jewel-shaped ice cubes that sparkle and shine and melt away in your drink. Plus, at under 10 bucks a pop, you can buy a…
