Genius: A Product To Fight Humidity Hair

Summer is a favorite season in the beauty category (shimmery self-tanner, anyone?) but also one of the most problematic.

Weekend Wear: Daytime Date Look

Trolling street wear sites like Chictopia is one of my favorite online activities -- after online shopping. Like others who are fans of these sites, I get inspiration for my own outfits. User FashionisaPlayground calls this look the "Fair weather sailor," but I think it's more suited for a daytime…

Weekend Wear: Kim Kardashian’s Summer Concert Look

Kim Kardashian has been a fashion force since she landed on the scene as a result of her now-infamous sex tape. But even before she became known for her other talents (or lack thereof, depending on how you look at the situation), Kim worked as a stylist. I think Tim Gunn'…

Cheapskate: Sheath Dresses

You might not have the ducats of Victoria Beckham -- or her severely serious demeanor -- but that doesn't mean her style is out of your reach.

Beauty Test Drive: Balenciaga Paris Eau De Parfum

If you're a lover of lady mags like we are, then you've probably noticed advertisements for Balenciaga Paris in almost every April issue. It's kind of difficult to get the full effect with those paper fragrance testers so I got my hands on an actual bottle of this new scent. My first thought after…

Snake Ear Wrap: Creepy Or Chic?

I normally stick to simple hoops or tiny stud earrings, so it's a little odd that I'm so drawn to this elaborate snake earring. I just can't help loving how it winds around, going through a regular hole and wrapping itself up the ear. What would you pair with it in your other ear?

You’re Hot! (And 148 Pounds!)

What if every time you stepped on the scale, it called you "Hot," "Lovely," or "Ravishing," rather than any number that's not your "goal weight"? This "Yay! Scale" made by VoluptuArt pays with compliments rather than pounds, but some think that a scale without numbers just "encourages unhealthy eating habits." Whatever, I am…
