Brooks Brothers’ Limited Edition “Mad Men” Suit

What's sexier—your guy dressing up as Don Draper for Halloween or him dressing like that regularly just because?

Beauty Test Drive: Benefit Crescent Row Fragrances

We know and love Benefit's cosmetics well -- their Bad Gal eyeliner and Dr. Feelgood complexion primer have been makeup bag staples forever -- but we don't exactly think of them first when it comes to perfume. Strike that notion, because their newish Crescent Row line beats out any old Britney Spears fragrance launch any…

What Are Pajaki? And How Do You Get Your Hands On One?

The Polish word "pajaki" literally translates to "spiders of straw" in English, but the paper chandeliers made through this art form are so much prettier than the name would suggest. The town of Lowicz, which is 90 miles outside Warsaw, and surrounding villages are known for their colorful folk art, but, lately, the pajaki, which…

Trend We Heart: Pouch Necklaces

"Everything old is new again" is a saying that you hear over and over again in the fashion world because, as we all know, trends are recycled. A few years ago, my mom bought me a copper necklace that consisted of a filigree ... well, I called it a basket at the time ... and…

Cheapskate: Banana Republic Is Having A Major Sale!

We don't usually think of Banana Republic as a Cheapskate kind of place since it's Gap's grown-up, more expensive sibling, but every now and then the retailer has a major sale. And this time, we're taking notice because several of the items are weather-appropriate now, and those that aren't only need to be layered. Check…

Giving New Meaning To “Bachelor Pad”

I don't know why I'm so flabbergasted, and, dare I say, turned off, by these new padded crotch Calvin Klein jeans for men that promise “body-defining fit for an enhanced profile.” After all, we ladies have padded push-up bras, Spanx, and a variety of other undergarments that create the illusion of a body blessed by…

Painter Takes Pet Portraits To A Whole New Level

Painter Valerie Leonard is the Annie Leibovitz of pet portraits—without the mounting debt and camera, that is. Valerie's "process" is an insanely involved one: She devotes days to each portrait, studies images of a particular animal, researches traits and characteristics of specific breeds. Then, she researches classic artists for the most fitting painting, using the…

United Bamboo Dresses Up Kitties, We Can’t Get Enough

These models are fierce! We would love to wake up each day and have runway garb greet us as we check the date. Unfortunately, staring a high-fashion model in the face (and body) first thing in the AM would probably shoot our day to hell before it even got started. United Bamboo has managed to…

Computers Can Now Get Salon Treatments With OPI

Or, um, something like that. Remember last week when we mentioned that Dell collaborated with artists to create a series of chic laptop designs? They're at it again, but this time, their partnership is aimed at nerdy beauty junkies. Nail company OPI worked with Dell to create a line of laptops based on famous polish…

Cheapskate: Under $100 At Bluefly

Bluefly is known for selling designer clothes for a lot less, but sometimes the original price is so high that when it's marked down by the online retailer we still can't afford it. This doesn't mean a recessionista can't find anything at Bluefly. There are many designer articles of clothing, shoes, and accessories sold for…
