For the Marissa Cooper in Your Life

...Or the Kirsten Cohen, although she tends to go straight for the bottle. And by the way, if you don't get these random references you can assume that you're just super-cool and have no time to waste on the O.C.

This cell-phone shaped flask is Style.com's Item of the Week (click for larger image so you can read the caption, it's really quite reasonably priced) as perfect for, "quick nips in the limo" and "spiking inadequate punch at a New Year's party."

Sheesh, the O.C. and Vogue both are just such bad influences on me. I should go back to watching Gilmore Girls instead.


Kate (The Only "Moss" In Our Woods)

I am totally obsessed with this necklace (and its name) Plus, I think it's time my jewelry collection expanded beyond the constraints of Urban Outfitters, I mean the Laguna Beachers buy jewelry at Urban Outfitters and even I know better than to follow their fashion example.

Anyway, considering that Kate's price is quite reasonable ($54) I think I should buy myself the gold one for Hannukah and the silver one for Christmas.

Ah, the joys of being a halfsie

Fashion Disaster

"THE cost of a transit strike to department stores and designer boutiques in New York during the week before Christmas and Hanukkah will undoubtedly be staggering. The cost to the greater cause of fashion could be even worse."

When perusing the NY Times, I rarely actually read the articles because of the air of droning voices and and utter boredom that their little blurbs manage to exude.......yet occasionally I run across something so frighteningly important that am I persuaded to actually click through the kajillion pages the article consists of. Really, with a hook like this, how can I resist?

In this time of trouble the NY Times is spotting a resurgence of terrible fashion faux pas such as "weird, leotardy types of things and oversize purple Patagonia sweatshirts." You think that's silly? Are you thinking that the Times is being just a tad overdramatic, but wait,
It was, after all, the transit strike in 1980 that led millions of New Yorkers to walk to work wearing business suits with running shoes, usually white. It was a look born of practicality, but one that commuters refused to cede when that strike ended, as if their long-term comfort was another chip on the union's bargaining table. Thus was born one of the worst fashion trends ever.
White sneakers with business suits! Arrrrrghhhhh, we cannot let another national disaster like that one occur! Damn unions! Those kerflingin' ungrateful socialists are at the root of all fashion evil.

Snack Attack, Mothafuckas!

Oh God, I think I just died laughing. Best SNL short since Chris Farley and Patrick Swayze were auditioning for Chip 'N Dales. This is my life (minus that HOT jacket)


Um, this made me feel very bad about how much I care for the well being of "BritNeyNSeAn"....but hopefully you are cool enough to enjoy it guilt-free.

BritNeyNSeAn4eVa (2:28:21 AM): hell ya. a tiger don't change his spots. he cheated on his babymomma so u cant tell me he won't cheat on Brit. she needs to think about her baby since she's a momma now. i seen it happen to my friend her baby's daddy went back to his old girlfriend before my friend had her baby and now he don't talk to her or see the baby or nuthin :(
BritNeyNSeAn4eVa (2:28:52 AM): and hes ugly 2.

You can read the whole "IMterview" here, but I found this little excerpt to be a perfect encapsulation of what I find wrong with Kevin. As Hailee puts it so eloquently, "a tiger don't change his spots."

Leo Shops at Victoria's Secret

........for the models that is.

I totally take back what I said about feeling sorry for Leonardo DiCaprio because Gisele had moved on to someone who is actually hot.

Leo is supposedly with this 20 year-old Victoria's Secret model.
Um, so I guess that means Leo is over it too.


Jenny Shimizu vs. Maddox Jolie

Um, I guess all we can conclude is that Angelina Jolie thinks mohawks are hot.

Watch for Brad and Zahara to get mohawked very very soon, considering that Angie appears to control the lives of everyone around her.

The Worst Best-Dressed

Vogue, how could you do this to me?

Sienna Miller
"starring" in your best dressed January issue.........is this how you want to start off our year? On a lame, copycat, slept-her-way-to-fame note?

Oh, and when you refer to her as a "Headline Maker" and a "Rule Breaker" I assume you're referring to the headlines she made when her famous boyfriend cheated on her and the rules she broke by following Kate Moss's style down to every last hat, flat, and jean.

I assume Vogue just stuck Sienna on the cover because she's a "famous actress" who is more likely to sell magazines than say, someone with original style, but it still hurts.

Paint the Stars Black

Not to talk about only Chanel or anything, but how gorgeous are five black Chanel outfits all in a row? Certainly too gorgeous to leave languishing on Teen Vogue's hit or miss page, because sometimes I doubt your commitment to annoyingly undersized magazines.

(Ashley Olsen, Mia Maestro, Diane Kruger, Lindsay Lohan, and Amanda Hearst) It almost makes me not hate Mia Maestro (not quite though, I still kind of blame her for the downfall of Alias)

Dear New Face of Chanel,

First of all, puh-leeze don't get used to me calling you that all the time or anything because I'm getting very tired, very fast of you flaunting this new contract in our faces all the time.

Rule #1 As a face of Chanel you are expected to look good all the time.

Rule #2 Yes, you are expected to show some Chanel love, but (and this is a big butt) never at the risk of making it look ugly.

That said, please never pull a stunt like this one where you drape your self in advertisements, and fail MISERABLY at making it look good! Now, I know this sounds a little harsh, Linds, but you are no longer representing yourself, you are representing CHANEL.

No Lindsay, DON'T try to explain yourself. You are a bad enough influence on your little sister as it is--btw, EW, ALIANA, go to your room and change NOW--and I think we all know how hard it is to overcome sisters with bad taste. Besides (since I refuse to sully this post with pictures of you making a fashion victim of yourself) I posted a picture of you doing the Chanel right, and you look very purty here. Thank you, that is all.

Don't Call it a Comeback

....or do, whatever. Either way go watch Kate Moss's ad for Virgin Mobile.

Um, but don't enter the contest to win a phone signed by her because I already did and I want to win

.....although here I go telling you so apparently my subconscious has already given and decided I can't win. Although on the other hand, I didn't put a direct link to the contest, so I guess if you really want to enter you're going to have to go find it yourself! MWA HA HA HA!


Hi, I'm on Crack.

As in, "Hi, I'm on Project Runway for the 2nd time, my name is Daniel Franco, and I. Am. On. Crack"

Yuck, please God make Daniel go away or I might go apeshit on Katrina's TV the next time he faces the camera and quivers like the high-strung rabbit he is.

Gross. Go away and come back when you're clean Daniel. I don't think Bravo can handle you and Whitney Houston at the same time.
