Secret Weapon: Conair Anti-static Detangling Comb
I’ve read about using a wide-toothed comb versus a regular brush on wet hair for ages but didn’t believe in the benefits until I bought this Conair Anti-static Detangling Comb. While I’ve only been using it for a few weeks, I’ve already noticed a huge difference in my hair’s breakage and split ends (less of both). I bought a Conair but I’m sure any brand will...

Rodarte on Sale (!!) →
Opening Ceremony has Rodarte on sale. SERIOUS sale.
"More Ombre!" She Said.
Anybody who has a shred of vanity knows that finding a good “hair person” is a difficult task no matter where you live. When I lived in San Francisco, I lucked out and - on my second haircut and after a college career of $15 trims - found My Guy, a fauxhawked hair genius from Tokyo who gave the best scalp massages and long layers a well-tressed gal could ask for. On the latter, when I...

Celebs Go Geek Chic
I’m a huge fan of my oversized Ray-Ban nerd-chic glasses not only because I have to wear them (thanks DNA!), but they also hide restless nights, the effects of a salty dinner, bad karma. These celebs are also showing off four-eyes pride and strapping on a pair. via.
Saw this amidst Zara’s latest megasale. While I’m unsure of the price, I’m guessing it was around $40 based on neighboring items. The size S was a bit too small in the shoulders for me (I have somehow gained these wider surfer/swimmer shoulder in the past few years) but I love the zipper detail and magenta stripes. Would undoubtedly add some flair to a basic neutral tank +...
NOW on Boy Georgina Vintage: 1980s Red Silk... →
Gorgeous and on sale for $24.00 USD
Let’s clear things up: tribal tattoos? A definite NO. Tribal prints on cozy sweaters and tees? A resounding YES. One of my favorite things about shopping at small, local boutiques is that occasionally they hold huge blowout 60% off storewide sales. This is exactly how I nabbed this amazing tribal print sweater at SIANY in Calabasas. I’ve been searching high and low, on websites and...

Love these Looks: Golden Globes
Blushtones, mermaid silhouettes, various shades of blue and pewter and the occasional geometric pattern dominated the red carpet at last night’s Golden Globes. Here, a rundown of my favorite looks among the fashion plates out in full force. And of course that includes Tilda. American Horror Story’s Taissa Farmiga in a blushy mauve Vera Wang gown.

Hollywood's Power Stylists →
With the Golden Globes underway tonight, this New York Times article is timely and insightful regarding the business that IS the Hollywood red carpet. As one stylist candidly notes in the article, “The stylist is an outgrowth of the mean-girls culture.Their very existence says of an actress, ‘I don’t trust my own instincts, or I have no instincts, or I can’t bear to read all the mean...
Love this Look: Modern Mohawk
I’ve been wanting to try the long mohawk for some time now as homage to my faux-punk high school days. I came close at the BET Awards last year, albeit it was more Stefani-inspired pompadour than ‘hawk. For more modern mohawk looks, head over here.
Love this Look: Vanessa Hudgens
Love this look! Vanessa Hudgens in a sparkly Jenny Packham gown and classy black stilettos at the People’s Choice Awards. Chic, fun with just a touch of gothic-edginess.
Hello Kitty Celebrates the Year of the Dragon
Sometimes, I actively work to fight against stereotypes, asserting things “No, I’m not good at math!” (this despite having completed AP calculus in high school and earning a 5 on the AP exam) and “Look, I’m not a doctor” (I’m not). But when it comes to Hello Kitty, all of that goes out the window. Miss Kitty is celebrating 2012, the year of the dragon,...
Kate Spade says Stripes are Back! →
But I didn’t know they left! The designer recently proclaimed 2012 as the Year of the Pattern, with stripes leading the pack. I’ve always been a fan of patterns, but like any good thing, only in moderation - meaning I will hold off on that striped wallpaper. The jersey cotton striped maxi dress I recently picked up for 40% off? That is a totally different story (pictures soon).
