I know most of you that read this blog don't care at all about this show. Which is totally understandable. I, however, will be watching every episode (or at least as long as my lil sis is still on).  She is the one in the tiara, Zui. My sister has always been pretty vain so this comes as no shocker to me (every time she visits me she brings a new picture of herself for my fridge). I am sure Paris loved her. Not only does she have insanely awesome style and an amazing weave but she's also hilarious.
that don't fit and give the world an unintentional, back-gap, peep show whenever you bend down. isAbelt is a clear, adjustable, virtually invisible belt that keeps those jeans in place and your waist streamlined, so you don't have to wear a regular-old, heavy, bulky belt. Since I like my belts to show, my personal fav is isAbelt Jr-Skull style complete with cute skulls and pink lips graphics. It's super fun, really comfortable, and fits up to a junior's size 12 (women's size 12-14). All other isAbelt's come in junior's, women's, and plus-size women's styles.
Brooklyn based Jewelry designer Gabriela de la Vega's special Antique key collection, combines timelessness and originality with style. The keys are casted in Vermeille; sterling silver and plated with 18k gold. In the necklace featured above, the center key was a key to a grandfather clock. All of the keys have their own histories. Another was a key to an old desk given to Gabriela by her Great Grandmother, that she always held onto and never lost. Click here to shop around!  Every piece is so feminine and expressive.

The second volume of P.L.A.I.N. Janes from Minx hit stores this week, along with the sad news that the Minx imprint will cease publication in January. The second Janes book is as much fun as the first, with the sassy high school girls creating unauthorized art around their small town. This time, things are complicated by crushes, with each Jane having her (or his) own love troubles. Despite boy issues, though, Main Jane's goal is still to make art, and it is that goal that drives the story.
Confession: I'm a serious pack-rat who is completely freaked out by disorganized clutter. I can handle, like, an artfully arranged stack of books, but stuff just sitting out willy-nilly, with no home? It slowly, quietly drives me insane. Which is problematic, see, because I'm constantly coming home with armloads of random crap that I refuse to throw away. Certainly I'm not alone in this. So because my living space is not that big and I really don't think 43 Folders will work for me, I'm officially making a pledge to keep stuff together...
It's not news that women in Washington (particularly those truly on the world stage) are scrutinized for their clothing, but I'm a little confused by Robin Givhan's Washington Post story about Palin's so-called ordinary style. Givhan is known for her no-nonsense fashion criticism of the political elite--whether or not that's responsible or even necessary is up to you--but this one just seems like a redux. Givhan waxes aesthetic for several paragraphs about Palin's run-of-the-mill style, ultimately concluding that its common roots are what make it so different, and then...well, that's it.
