While I have a soft spot for sequins, I'll admit, on occasion, their shimmer can border on overkill. That's where stud-tastic tees come in. Just the way they do on Katharine McPhee's Alice + Olivia tee, studs add a little — but not too much — embellishment. They're less festive and a little more cool. But, if you'd like to tone down the rocker vibe, just pair with other textures and under layers, like Katherine's wool blazer. And, when you want to amp up the look, try a pair of black denim and let the studs be the standout.
We got a quick look at House of Harlow's Spring '10 footwear collection back in October when the news was released. Now the Navajo-inspired shoes have reached Kitson, though they're on pre-order, with an end-of-February delivery date. There's something for every Nicole Richie fan — sky high pumps, heeled sandals, flats, flat sandals, boots, and moccasins. Here is a standout, this Snakeskin Pump ($225). The texture and chunkiness are beyond cool. Step inside for more.
Confession: I adore slightly cheesy, totally fabulous sequin totes. Who doesn't appreciate a little bling on the beach? Or, at the grocery store. Just because the holidays are over doesn't mean sequins are — they're always welcome in my world. I was once gifted a white cloth tote with silver sequins, and I get compliments at the beach and beyond — imagine the sun's reflection on each and every shimmering sequin. Lindsay's sequin tote totally complemented her laid-back St. Barts ensemb. The best part? These dazzlers go day-to-night in a fashion flash.
Any reader of Pop knows that L.A. starlets love to shop at the boutique Kitson. Well, if you've got no immediate plans for a Southern California trip, you can get a little Hollywood with one of Kitson's laptop bags ($58).
Available in pink, purple, black, or blue, they also sparkle like a vampire in sunlight. Subtle? No. But if you wanted that L.A. look, then you really weren't going for subtle then, were you?
A few days before the November ETA, Nicole Richie's costume jewelry line has been released to Kitson LA. And the pieces are cool. With an Egyptian feel, gold, silver, and enamel bangles rule the offerings. The big black and gold ring Nicole has been modeling is there too, for a keen $38. Did I not mention the price is right? Most pieces are below $70, except for this large black and gold cuff, which is on pre-order for $125. A fine beginning to what I'm sure will be a sparkling endeavor.
As children we used to relish "LPJ"s or little plastic junk from the Littlest Pet Shop to licensed toys from the latest kid's film at the fast food emporium so perhaps it stands to reason that as our consumption addiction withdrawal comes to a head we are regressing to this most basic of cheap goods group. Who knew that it was possible to enjoy the "made in China" goodness of the LPJ even in accessories land just as the full brunt of our debt to China really starts to cramp our spending habits.
Whitney Port fans who have anxiously been waiting for the release of the Whitney Eve clothing line can finally dress like The Hills star. The first few pieces of the collection have been released and are currently on sale at Kitson. Sequin-lovers can exude disco chic in the Whitney Eve Black Sequin Ozark Dress ($495, left), while those who seek romance in their wardrobe can invest in the Whitney Eve Grey Encino Ruffle Collar Dress ($345, right).
I know, the prices are steep, but if you've got cash to burn, it's a good place to burn it. It looks like Whitney's gal pal Lauren Conrad is already a fan in a red pleated skirt from the collection. First her own reality show and now a clothing line . . . can Whitney's life get any better?
How many times has it happened that you desperately need something from your purse while in a dark club, and just can't find it? You may have thought the designer See by Chloe lights were too pricey; if so, you need one of these Mini Purse LED Lights ($7). You can clip it to your inner purse pocket and switch it on when you're searching the depths. You can probably even use it as a flashlight to illuminate a dark path . . .
Tricycles may not be an official license to drive, but they are certainly a sign of independence as little ones pedal down the sidewalk all on their lonesome. Saddle your sweet pea up in a charming retro ride that will evoke memories of T–birds, soda fountains, and 10-cent movies.
Simple: The timeless look of a $120 simple retro pink tricycle from Target is sure to be a crowd pleaser as your tyke trolls down the path.
Swank: The jewel-encrusted pink tricycle from Kitson may be the perfect gift for high-rolling princesses leading an entourage. If you want your child to be the sparkly leader of the pack, it will cost you $1,595.
Does either of these set of small wheels suit your fancy?
Painting walls is never fun when done alone. To trick my friends into helping me paint my dining room, I'll be holding a painting party filled with bubbly and brushes. It'll undoubtedly get messy so I need you to help me find a outfit that's paint-friendly, comfortable, and cute.
I'll start you off with these Minnetonka Suede Moccasins ($38) because they'll keep my toes cushioned and happy as I paint the day away.
