It's just two weeks until Halloween, meaning now's the perfect
time to stock up on candy, decorations--and gadgets!
Wait, gadgets? For Halloween? Yep, even this holiday can
benefit from some techno-wizardry, especially if you're looking to
create the ultimate costume. Here are three seriously cool gizmos
to liven up your All Hallow's Eve.
Finally, a way to integrate your smartphone into a Halloween
costume! Just choose one of the cool custom Digitaldudz shirts,
tape your phone inside so only the screen is showing, then run the
free Digital Dudz app (available for Android and iOS).
The effects range from a darting eyeball to a beating heart to
a flickering pumpkin.
Michelle Williams is often the darling of the red carpet,
and it was no exception on February 12th, when she arrived at the BAFTA Awards in
an elegant and simple champagne and black gown.
What was unusual was the name on the label of the dress. Known for wearing high-end designers like
Dior and Valentino, Michelle Williams stopped journalists in their tracks when
they found out the evening's attire was courtesy of H&M.
This week all fashionstas were a twitter over the new line by Karl Lagerfeld
exclusively for Net-a-Porter. KARL,
a collection of apparel and accessories is true to Lagerfeld's style aesthetic
– streamlined, clean lines, primarily black and white with some rocker and
futuristic touches. While KARL for
Net-a-Porter is far more wallet-friendly than Lagerfeld's collections for
Chanel, but can still be outside many stylish women's budgets. Here's some online styles that can evoke the
feeling of the KARL line, but at a lower price.
With the start of each new year, there is a whole new list of hot fashion trends. Weeding through the crazy, the unwearable, and the flash-in-the-pan fads, here are some trends that I believe will be big in 2012 and are also quite wearable.
This season, one of the hottest looks is the bow blouse (also known as a secretary bow or pussy bow blouse). This blouse was popular in the '70s on blouses and dresses, and then in the '80s as a way to add a touch of femininity to the power suit. These days, bow blouses look great on their own or under cardigans…and yes, power suits.
Here are some great options that are at great prices:
Because you need a Mother's Day gift idea and because you really didn't think the Snuggie could get any warmer or cozier, I bring you the Coz-E Electric Blanket. Available from Urban Outfitters for about $68--a small price to pay to be swathed in awesome sauce and snuggly warmth. (Although an internet search find the electrically upgraded Snuggie is available for less $25 from Amazon.com...)
Don't let the photo fool you: the woman in the picture isn't actually upset about receiving and being made to model a Coz-E; she isn't frowning so much as giving you that "come hither" look. It has "come join me in my Coz-E and we can watch Golden Girls together" written all over it.
