Make Your Own Skinny Jeans!

Ahhh the “Skinny Jean”….a fashion forward look  we fought long and hard for years. Thinking they would make our stubby gams look less lean and lengthy and more like a top-heavy turkey leg, we clutched our favorite bootcuts like they were our first born. That is until we actually tried on a pair of skinnies and discovered we’d been wrong all along and purchased them immediately. From that day forward we were hooked. But replacing all of our trusty bootcutsRead more

Goody’s QuikStyle Paddle Brush – A Review

In case you missed our post on Influenster and the awesome Holiday Vox Box we were sent, today’s feature is all about the Goody QuikStyle Paddle Brush. Retailing between  $9.99 and $13.99 (depending on the retailer) it’s a bit pricier than a regular paddle brush and the claims of faster drying time, we assume, are why. Speaking of claims, here’s what the Goody QuikStyle Brush says it can deliver: • Absorbent microfiber bristles remove 30% of water for faster styling • Antimicrobial microfiber keeps the brushRead more

Say Bye Bye To Tarantula Eyes

We’ve spent more money on lash combs that we’d care to admit and have repurposed every last safety pin in the house when we’d lost our lash comb (yet again.) All in the endless pursuit of natural looking lashes rather than an eye full of spider legs. EWWW. Yes, we know that they were all the rage last season and on every runway from Chloe and Lanvin to Valentino and Mui Mui’s during their ‘11 Fall campaigns. Personally, we think they’re aRead more

Hold the Sugar & Hide Your Jewels in Style!

To know us is to love our endless quest to find the dual purpose in everything, even items that we’d gladly deem well enough alone. Take the beautiful sugar bowls and apothecary jars of mornings passed. Uniquely stunning yet visually fresh, these bowls would hold sugar with pizzazz and became an anchor of style in every kitchen counter. But when faced with a few more baubles than would fit in our Secret Book Compartment or Stenciled Necklace Holder, we were forced to yet again, get creative.Read more

Got Something To Hide? BOOK IT!

Finding new ways to repurpose is as innate for us as breathing. In our minds, everything has a dual purpose. Every. Thing. So while out and about on a ‘hunting expedition’ at the local thrift store we came across a gem so amazing, so sultry, so blissfully perfect, we just HAD to snag it. What’s so sexy about a book you ask? Well dear kiddies, this isn’t just any book. It’s a GAME. We couldn’t believe our ‘luck’ when weRead more

Then Let’s Do The DIY Thang, shall we? Aside from your darling little earrings in need of a little up-cycling, you’ll need nail polish remover (if there’s currentlyRead more

Wedge Me Up Before You Go-Go

Once upon a time, amidst the mid 90’s glitter pop, the platform sneaker was all the rage, especially by Spice Girl fans.  However, if you were seen sporting them, you were either embraced by fellow fans or ostracized by clueless anti-fans, various random haters of “Spice World” and of course, the fashion elite. Translation? Not a good look. Cut to the present day launch of Isabel Marant’s Willow sneaker, which instantly sold out and kicked off the trend that everyone and their mama is now embracing. From Chloe to Aldo, Steve Madden to ASH, Marc Jacobs to Top Shop andRead more
