The stars were shining last night in Hollywood for the the 62nd annual Emmy Awards and we recapped all of the red carpet hits, misses and hot trends this morning on TODAY. Click the videos below to watch.
Celebs are embracing their roots–literally. Two tone tresses are growing in popularity amongst Hollywood’s A-Listers. The trend is certainly easy (and cheap enough) for anyone to try but I’m curious to know what you think. Is this low maintenance look for your locks effortlessly chic or a faux pas?
Anyone who knows me could tell you that interesting nails are my guilty pleasure so I had to share when I stumbled across “The Daily Nail,” a blog following one girl’s journey through 365 days of different designs. Just a few of my favorites are below (sharks for “Shark Week,” Weeds for the Weeds premiere!), but there’s a lot more on the site that will surely inspire some creativity of your own … Happy painting!
If you missed my minute buzz this morning you can catch up with the video clip here! The mini segment this week was all about fun finds for the little ones as they head off to school. If you want more info on where to buy, click here.
U-Laces are this week’s Win-It and possible the next Silly Bandz craze. Already a top trend in Japan, the colorful, stretchy segments fit in the eyelets of most sneakers and allow you to “trick your kicks.” Weave, criss-cross or zig-zag your design … over 2 trillion combinations are possible. Check out U-Lace.com’s gallery for inspiration. To help you get started, I’m giving away a set of 8 different colors. To win, follow me on Twitter and reTweet the contest mention. The winner will be announced tomorrow at 5:00 pm EST. *Sorry, USA only.
After daring to don a little boy’s tuxedo shirt and tie on TODAY last week I was inspired to put away the crafts for reWork Wednesday in favor of raiding a different closet in the house…his closet! A simple guyish touch is a great way to give your girly garb new dimension. Check out the looks above for inspiration and dive into his drawers in search of ties, cufflinks, suspenders & pocketsquares to adorn yourself with next time you head out.
This morning the TODAY Show kicked off their Modern Wedding series and to help the winning couple (and anyone out there who may be planning their own), I rounded up the hottest trends in favors, from gifts that do-good to DIY. If you couldn’t tune in, you can watch the segment above and if you want more info on products I mentioned, you can click here.
Between fun, frilly clothes in store windows and a subscription to Vogue, it’s easy to end up with a closet crammed full of crazy. And come weekday afternoon errands or lunch with a friend, you find yourself with nothing to wear. Sound familiar? Below find wearable wardrobe staples & well-priced pieces that I promise you’ll get more use out of than you ever did that tulle skirt or those “McQueenadillo” knock-offs.
I am a die-hard TV fan, from True Blood and Mad Men to Weeds and everything in between so needless to say, I can completely understand the desire for a tee to show off your TV pride. Glee fans get ready… Macy’s is launching an exclusive Glee line of fashion apparel for every type of “Gleek”. The pieces are priced between $20 and $35 and you can find special in-store themed vignettes and creative window design displays at select stores across the country.
Whenever I wear my electric orange heels on the TODAY Show, my Bobbie.com inbox fills with emails wondering who makes them… and I absolutely love spreading the buzz about Ruthie Davis! For those who haven’t heard of the designer, you’ve probably seen her attention-demanding designs on the red carpet before (I put together a collage of some recent shots). You can head over to the Ruthie Davis website to browse the entire collection of drool-worthy pumps and sexy, spiky stilettos.

The retro rompers that started to reappear a little over a year ago are proving that they have more staying power than a typical trend (see all the celebs above in Seneca Rising’s easy breezy Holland style). While the all-in-one aspect of jumpers make for an effortless ensemble, it can also make them difficult to fit well. So for all of you out there who’ve ever said “I can’t wear a romper” here are some tricks:
Opt for Unstructured: A soft, stretchy fabric with few seams will allow you to push & pull and make sure the garment hits the right places. You might also consider going a size up so the fabric drapes nicely and isn’t pulled taut.
Seek Out a Specific Silhouette: Though many rompers are drop-waist, best suited for those with narrow hips, there are rompers that are fitted at the empire or natural waist.
If it’s your first time donning a romper, stick with dark neutral colors and add a cardigan, jacket or, as cooler weather approaches, opaque tights until you get used to the look.
Everyone loves a surprise and everyone loves fun jewelry. So what could be better than combining the two? Check out the trinkets above, from Fendi’s hidden mirror/watch (a splurge) to lip gloss rings from Hot Topic (just $3.99). I even spotted a notebook ring (found here) and cameo locket stud earrings you can purchase here.
