Horizontal stripes can be a little tricky, but these are thin enough that we’re confident in your ability to pull them off. Style it with a thick black belt to break up the pattern, throw on some red lipstick and serious heels, and get ready to look French in the best way possible.

Usually, looking through my Facebook updates feed is cause for extreme boredom. On the rare occasion that it provides something I’m actually interested, I regain faith in mankind and blog about the glorious occurrence. This is one of those times. Amidst a sea of updates about peoples’ puppies and boyfriends and stuff was a pretty nifty project from Jeff Simmermon, Facebook friend and man who brought us all those Types of Bitches. Jeff used scissors, tape and a few hours to make a striped accent wall in his living room and we’re a little bit in love with it. Project details after the jump. [Flickr] Keep reading »
There are a few features I dream of having in my future home. The list includes a dishwasher, a washer and dryer, a radiator that doesn’t clank, and a striped bathroom. Because of that last wish, the December issue of Lonny made me drool all over my laptop. The online magazine pictures not one but two striped bathrooms. The first (above) is in the J.Crew Collection store on NYC’s Upper East Side, and the second (after the jump) is one of the bathrooms at Hotel Keppler in Paris.

To properly celebrate our nation’s birth, you must do these three things tomorrow: grill food, watch fireworks, and wear something (anything) that involves stars or stripes. We’re here to help you with the third. Now, you have a couple options. You can go all out and wear only an American flag draped around your body, or you can be a little more subtle, and put on something you already own — or needed an excuse to run out and buy today. While you’re at it, don’t forget to pick up a pack of sparklers. Keep reading »
A trip to the beach this weekend left me with some pretty nasty sunburns. Yes, I applied sunscreen. SPF 30, in fact. Apparently that wasn’t enough, and now I need to figure out what I can wear that won’t inflict more pain (and will distract my coworkers, who keep coming over to gawk at my crayon-red splotches). This blouse-y t-shirt from Old Navy will let my burns breathe while making me look slightly nautical. I did just come back from the seashore, after all. [Old Navy] Keep reading »
