I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: I love old people. Aside from their I-don’t-give-a-fuck attitude about life in general, their fashion choices never cease to amaze me. As my grandparents get older, I’ve noticed that my grandfather’s pants just keep getting higher and higher, but my grandma— well, she’s another story. For whatever reason, as she ages, she keeps piling on more and more accessories, I think in an effort to remind us all that underneath the wrinkles, she’s still fabulous. My ex-boyfriend used to say he liked visiting her because she had so many brooches, faux pearls and cocktail rings that she looked like she belonged on the Titanic, and that is precisely why “Advanced Style” is my new favorite thing.

London-based blogger Susie Lau is the lady behind Susie Bubble, one of the first, and best, style blogs on the web. Susie’s imprint is all over the fashion world: You can find her in the front row at every fashion week, plus she’s constantly collaborating with designers and writes a style column for The Guardian. Recently, The Coveteur visited Susie and photographed her extensive and enviable closet — and we just had to share. Check out her full closet on their site.
It should come as no surprise that The Frisky staff is fairly obsessed with “Office” writer and star Mindy Kaling. It’s not just that we love her ridiculous portrayal of Kelly Kapoor, but we think it’s seriously great that she’s emerged as one of the smartest and sassiest female television writers around. We can’t wait for her new book, Is Everybody Hanging Out Without Me?, to hit the shelves this November, so in the meantime, we’ve been tiding ourselves over with her blog, The Concerns of Mindy Kaling. This isn’t Kaling’s first stab at putting her random thoughts on the internet — she used to write a blog called Things I’ve Bought That I Love, but gave it up when her day job (heh heh) became more demanding. We’re happy to see that she’s back on track now, chronicling her fave sandwiches, shorts and jewelry in signature funny girl form. [The Concerns of Mindy Kaling]
