I already own this open cardigan in camel – and I’ve been meaning to pick up some other colors, but it kept slipping my mind. Good thing I’m absent-minded because I just snagged two more (in black and gray) – and I got the 20% off – plus one of the sweaters was half off with some other limited time offer.

Fargo Fabulous: The Trapper Hat

fargo+trapper+hat Fargo Fabulous: The Trapper Hat

It’s freaking freezing right now in Philadelphia. Thank goodness I had the good sense to ask Santa for a trapper hat last month. If you live in a city or town where the mercury often hovers around (or dips below) zero, please do yourself a favor and pick up one of these toasty warm toppers.

Trapper hats are very trendy right now. But, honestly, I couldn’t care less how popular they are because they’re so damn practical.

On my walk to and from work, my trapper hat keeps my head so warm that I forget how frigid it is outside. And the (faux) furry flaps protect my ears from the bitter wind. Surprisingly, my trapper doesn’t ruin my do like I imagined it would. Once I arrive at the office, just a few seconds of finger styling refreshes and revives my hairstyle. 

Here are some stylish and affordable options:


So does the trapper hat get two manicured thumbs up? You betcha!

Forever 21 Launches A Maternity Line

forever+21+lover+21+maternity Forever 21 Launches A Maternity Line

Well, it just figures. Now that I’m just about ready to pop, Forever 21 launches Love 21 Maternity. The small collection includes tanks, tunics, leggings, jeans and handbags – all for under $20. I’m tempted to add a few pieces to my mama-to-be wardrobe…but at this stage of the game, I fear I might go into labor before my order shows up on my doorstep.

Right now, Love 21 Maternity is only available at select Forever 21 stores in Alaska, California, Texas and Utah (kinda random, right?) and online at forever21.com/love21maternity.

New York Fashion Week, Fall 2010: Funky, Chunky Haircolor

Cynthia+Rowley+fashion+week New York Fashion Week, Fall 2010: Funky, Chunky Haircolor

Backstage at New York Fashion Week, my girl Megan McIntyre (from Daily Makeover) recognized an emerging trend for fall 2010: funky, chunky haircolor.

“Looks like it’s time to break out the Manic Panic. The big beauty trend for hair at Fashion Week was bright, chunky streaks of color that brought to mind punk-inspired street style circa 1996. At the Cynthia Rowley Fall 2010 fashion show, Eva Scrivo for Wella Professionals custom colored hair extensions in shades of emerald, lapis, amethyst, navy and turquoise to replicate the rich jewel tones present in the collection. Each hair extension was completely saturated with professional salon haircolor and then woven into the hair and styled, creating an element of surprise and intrigue when models hit the runway.

fashion+week+vena+cava New York Fashion Week, Fall 2010: Funky, Chunky HaircolorSuper stylist Ted Gibson for beauty.com went for a version of the trend that was a little easier to DIY at the Vena Cava Fall 2010 fashion show (shown left). He used Streekers to color hair extensions in shades of hot pink, purple and green, then pulled them back into the models’ slightly mussed ponytails to give a “downtown, cool feel,” to the otherwise equestrian look.

We think this is one trend that just might hit the trifecta of translating in all three worlds: runway, red carpet and real world. This is the second season funky color has been featured at Fashion Week (the girls at the Spring 2010 Proenza Schouler fashion show rocked lovely lilac streaks) and Lady Gaga recently caused a stir at the Grammys with her own spin on the Crayola color trend. Adding a bright streak of color to your coif is an easy way to add a hip edge to your regularly scheduled hairstyle without a huge commitment. Now all you really have to decide is which happy hue you want to adorn your hair with.”
