Get the Amy Winehouse Look

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Music, Clothing, Style,

Put-Description-HereHere’s a tidbit that almost seems too ridiculous to be true: is coming out with her own makeup and clothing lines.


According to The Sun, the singer will soon be speaking to fashion and cosmetic execs about this new financial venture.  If wannabes are going to (inexplicably) imitate her, why not make them pay to do it?  Possible items linked to Winehouse’s name include hairspray (duh), scarves (to keep the bees in the hive), perfume (to mask the unwashed scent) and eyeliner (double duh).

Products not included?  Brushes, shampoo, tattoos, crack pipes and disintegrating ballerina flats.

The Oscars: Red Carpet Fashion

Jessica Alba at the OscarsFor me, award season isn’t about who walks away with a statuette - it’s about what they’re wearing when they’re doing it. Who looked great? Who should have stayed home? And who stole the show away from the actual show? That’s right - it’s time for the red carpet round up.

Pregnant arrived on the red carpet in a dark maroon, empress-cut waisted dress that gave her baby bump plenty of room. Everything was okay but the top of the dress, which exploded in a profusion of feathers that made her gown look less like couture and more like curtains haphazardly wrapped around her body. 

wore a double-stranded necklace that somehow didn’t complement her shell-colored ball gown. The color wasn’t right for Keri, and the unembellished look didn’t quite reach the elegant look Russell was no doubt going for.

Did Mariah Carey Leave Something at Home?

Put-Description-HereThis picture was taken of while she was out shopping in Beverly Hills this Monday.  Every time I look at it, I just can’t help but think there’s something missing.

No, it wasn’t her dog.  (Although he’s not pictured, the Jack Russell was there at the mall with her.)

The diva’s got her sunglasses.  Check.

What could it possibly be?

Sanrio Targets Male Customer Base

Men's Hello Kitty Line

Say it ain’t so! In one of the last bastions of all things fem, Sanrio has found it fitting to create Hello Kitty products for young men after a Limited Edition collection proved popular. Included in the assortment will be t-shirts, watches, bags, and other articles in decidedly masculine shades of black and blue. No matter what the color, Sanrio seems confident that it will sell in Japan next month and not long after in other Asian countries and the U.S. Even with its slightly revamped image, you still have to be comfortable with yourself to wear one of these items, male or female.

Olympic Athletes Glow in the Dark

Ski SuitSpace Suit

This is what the well-dressed ski bum will be wearing in the future. Presented as part of Munich’s bid to host the 2018 Winter Olympics, the LED-lit ski suit was designed by Willy Bogner. Solar-powered, it has an optical output ration of 55 Lumens/Watts. Also featured was the “Private Space Suit” with its flexible LED panel that can go on a jacket or pants with a lifespan of up to 50,000 hours. We hope that Germany has a lot more sun during its winter than we do or the clothing will be merely expensive and gaudy.

Future Clothing To Be Functional

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Wearables, Design, Science,

Electric Vest

Scientists are now experimenting with what our clothing will look like and, more importantly, do for us in the years to come. For example, some day we will be able to charge our iPods with body energy converted to electricity. Other futuristic products include clothing made of self-cleaning material that doesn’t require much washing, outfits made with carbon nanofibers that act as armor, soft helmets that turn hard in case of a crash, and wool that doesn’t itch or shrink. Finally, there is experimentation with byproducts such as chicken feathers or rice straw being turned into material to cut down on petroleum-based synthetic fabrics. We guess that means that you can double your clothing as pillows or sleeping bags, should the need arise.

Eco Dryer Removes Shoe Moisture

Eco Shoe DryerYour shoes get suddenly soaked on your lunch hour and you are at work. What to do? You reach out for your handy LID Eco Shoe Dryer, plug it in to charge it, and let the silicon gel inside absorb the moisture in any type of shoe. As the humidity is sucked out, the indication color goes from blue to pink. The company claims it will also work in closets and shoe boxes. This is definitely a fine alternative to tossing them into the oven for a few minutes and having to endure the results of dry on the outside, soggy on the inside. Made of ABS resin and polycarbonate, the Eco is available for $30.00.
