Happy Friggin' New Year--Get a Snooki Party Ball!!

 The guiltiest pleasure of 2010 was definitely Jersey Shore.  You have to respect that the entire cast cashes in at every turn. Snooki's latest venture is jewelry. It's friggin adorable, only $50 and can be found on Diamond Shark  The necklace is the deal of the day and will only be up for another 10 hours. Move yo' ass!

Here's a message from our favorite Italian Umpa Lumpa:

Carine Roitfeld resigns.

I'm two days late...the story of my life but I just learned that Carine Roitfeld is resigning her post as editor of Vogue Paris. Even if you have never picked up an issue there is just one question to ask...WHY?

It can only be something exciting. A tectonic shift such as this in the fashion world can only create something sensational. Who of the  french Conde Nast hive will follow and with what new blood are they mixing? I cannot wait to see the new baby.

Jewelry for the Girly Girl with an Edge

I don't know if you're anything like me but I really have to make an effort to remind myself to wear jewelry. It really only makes its way out of the jewelery box if I really want to impress with my collection of baubles but my newest discovery helped me to realize that just don't have the jewelery that makes my heart sing.  
sells jewelery made from bullet blanks. They make everything from  earrings to bracelets and rings. Take a look. I think it will speak to the pretty little hard ass in all of us.

Did you get gravy on your sweater?

So we spend days, months and sometimes years putting together gorgeous sweaters for ourselves and others  with the hope they are actually worn. The problem with people wearing things is that they get dirty with use, stained immediately or sometimes even pill. What's a girl to do with her beloved dirty hand knit? Ship it to The Laundress in New York. Lindsey and Gwen will lovingly wash, de-pill and dry your sweater with Eco-friendly products. Your sweater is then lovingly folded, packaged and returned in better condition than you have ever seen it for a mere $36 per item.

These two are not just two sweater washing grannies working out of their basement. Each has a degree in Fiber Science and Textile management  from Cornell University and have worked for the likes of Brooks Brothers, Ralph Lauren and CHANEL.

They also do denim services. Check out their blog for garment care tips.

Mean Girls 2

I am not sure how this version is in any way a sequel in that there are none of the original actors, writers (Tina Fey) or charm. It is obvious from the trailer that this version will not lend another classic line like : "Boo, you whore!!" (Say it out loud to get the full effect.) Amazing, isn't it?

In this version it's the Anti-Plastics vs. The Plastics. In reality The Plastics would wipe the floor with their flannel wearing nemisi but I will rent the DVD just to see exactly how the not-the-Lindsay's will reign victorious. Yes, Disney is wise enough to know that there is no box office draw to this film but if you're at the Red Box on a random Tuesday night....

Here's the trailer : um, enjoy? *shrug*
