I didn’t know that I needed a bejeweled pineapple turban until now. Or, better yet, a minature coconut tree hat. Luckily, Tami Bar-Lev has provided the world with both, along with many other surreal and headpieces. You haven't seen high fashion until you've seen a sparkly fish wrapped in newspaper and draped over someone's eye. And if you're a bride-to-be sick of veils and tradition, she does wedding fascinators, too! Yay!
There’s a fine line between ... Read More

Well this is awesome - two students from Cornell University have created a mannequin modeled after real plus sized bodies, building the most accurate curvy shape the fashion industry has ever used.
That sounds a little strange (why would an accurate plus-size mannequin be revolutionary?) but until now, most mannequins for larger clothes were made by just magnifying the general proportions of smaller mannequins. That means the proportions of plus-sized mannequins ... Read More
It's almost summer, which is the perfect time to share this adorable, Coney Island lookbook from designer Julie Mollo. Mollo is one of my favorite independent designers. She's cute as a button and her style reflects that as she designs whimsical circle skirts and bold accessories for girls unfraid of colorful fashion. Created to showcase her circle skirt line, this lookbook is perfectly summer-ready and the skirts are so cute, ... Read More

After filing for bankruptcy last spring, Betsey Johnson has risen from the ashes like a hot pink, sparkly phoenix. That’s right, on May 12 Betsey is set to star in "Xox Betsey" on Style Network, and it looks like quite the party.
"Xox Betsey" let’s us pick the mind of the quirky fashion legend and her relationship with daughter Lulu. That crazy kind of mother-daughter dynamic is something particularly intriguing, as it may serve to humanize the ... Read More

I know y'all have seen the ridiculous ass-backwards looks from the red carpet gala at the Costume Institute Ball. I will NOT bore you with talk about how the glitterati got it all WRONG. Punk is not putting a thousand dollars of studs on a three thousand dollar Burburry jacket (I'm looking at you Sienna Miller). If you haven't seen the pix, check them out here and come back to me laterz.
The Metropolitan Museum is super important and does a great job preserving ... Read More

Rebel Wilson is one cool chica who’s come a long way from her days playing Toula in Australian TV show Pizza (look it up on YouTube. If you’re not Australian you will be super confused and most probably scared).
In fact, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Wilson is releasing her own line of T-Shirts. Named after her popular Pitch Perfect character, the Fat Mandi collection currently consists of just two shirts. The garments are both designed to bring ... Read More

My little sister, who is graduating high school this year, has been trying out new styles of makeup and also wants to dye her hair blue. She says that this is all in preparation for college. In a more brooding tone, she confesses "I feel like I care a lot about how I look... Is that bad?" In high school, clothes and style seem to be indispensable to one's self-worth, from the hairstyle to the shoes. Similar to my sister, many girls seem to be concerned that ... Read More
Andrea Diodati’s Fall 2013 collection, titled The White Fall, is a collection made up of cotton candy separates and sugary sweet styling. In NYC’s lovely All Souls Chapel, the scene was set with sparkling lemonade, pink cotton candy via Handsome Dan’s and a live performance by songstress and pianist, Nibia. The styling of the models and overall vibe of the show were initially reminiscent of Meadham Kirchhoff S/S’12, but the show soon took ... Read More
