How To Find The Right Evening Bag For Your Look

image (7)
Try to think about the last time you decided to invest in an evening bag. You are probably struggling to come up with even one time it has happened. It usually goes like this: you think about the dress, then you think about the shoes, and then you start texting your friends: "hoops or studs? choker or monogrammed chain necklace?" And when all that's said and done, and you think your work here is finished, you're left with one lingering afterthought, "Crap, I still need a bag." This all-too familiar scenario has us scrounging around for a bag small enough to be considered a clutch - usually just our most basic going out crossbody - and hoping we get away with it. So...

Artist Toyin Ojih Odutola Finally Gets Her Due At The Whitney

toyin-ojih-odutola-headshot-1509394882
I’ve been to a lot of art openings. They're usually the same: the not-so-subtle posturing, the atmosphere as stale as the snacks proffered, the indifferent crowds outside smoking cigarettes and drinking cheap wine. Toyin Ojih Odutola’s opening at the Whitney Museum of American Art was different. Marking her first solo show in NYC, To Wander Determined, the event was more reunion than reception. This night, filled with Black artists, scholars, curators, stylists, and writers who have praised Ojih Odutola’s genius for years and waited on places like the Whitney to catch up, felt like a collective triumph. Museums like the Whitney, Guggenheim, and even the more progressive Brooklyn Museum have been historically known to exclude black women artists—and only in recent years...

This Enormous Party-Time Jell-O Shot Is Everything

JELLY SHOT TEST KITCHEN

Land of the free, home of the gigantic jelly shot.

There's something else we need to talk about: a jelly shot mold. Imagine a big-batch Jell-O shot, with a patriotic color scheme, and it's basically everything your red, white, and blue dreams are made of.

JELLY SHOT TEST KITCHEN
JELLY SHOT TEST KITCHEN

Blog Jelly Shot Test Kitchen came up with the genius way to make a giant, layered Jell-O shot in a bundt pan. Though this version uses red, white, and blue, you could switch up the gelatin colors pending the occasion (or your own creative whims).
The boozy concoction would be a smash at any summer part. You could also make a kid-friendly version by swapping the alcohol for lemon-lime soda, or even plain water.

Ariana Grande (Finally!) Lets Her Hair Down With a Platinum Blonde Color And Bangs

Ariana Grande(@arianagrande)님의 공유 게시물님, 2017 10월 29 오후 2:37 PDT

Aside from her impressive vocal range, Ariana Grande is best known for her interminable brunette mane, consistently polished and pin-straight, whether worn in a high-slung ponytail, a half-up style or two glossy double-knots. All that changed after the culmination of her Dangerous Woman Tour, when Grande made the switch to a shade of grey that looked almost lavender. And after making the full-on move to Team Platinum, with a unicorn-like hue that calls to mind Kim Kardashian West's recent dye job, it seems Grande is test-driving another above-neck shift: micro bangs. The pop star took to Instagram yesterday to share a selfie featuring trademarks—power brow, long lashes, matte pout, glowing skin—framed by...

Bettina Bakdal’s Dresses Are Made Slow With Vintage Hermès Scarves

According to Danish designer Bettina Bakdal, there’s nothing wrong with slowing down. She studied at the Royal Danish Academy School of Design, graduated, and went to work for several large retail corporations in Denmark. She was the head designer for Inwear, producing somewhere around 800 garments between 2006 and 2007. After her stint there, she finally decided to pump the breaks. “I needed space from making clothes,” Bakdal says. “I worked on two independent films as a costume designer and was teaching fashion at Design School Kolding—I needed to clear my head.” It wasn’t until 2013 that she started an eight-person design collective studio and shop called Konrög in Copenhagen; now, she’s turning her attention back to handcrafted fashion with her...

Red Curry Squash Chicken Chili

You know what’s difficult? Being patient. I’m writing this very overdue post from the allergist’s office where I go once every 3-11 days for allergy shots. My allergies have been pretty bad for a very long time. I’m horribly allergic to cats and according to my allergist, most everything else too. Ragweed, trees, grass, dust mites, and just about anything else found outdoors.. you name it, I’m allergic to it. So finally, I figured it was time to take the plunge and get allergy shots. This requires that I stop into the office once every 3-11 days to get shots. Then after getting the shots, I’m required to wait 30 minutes in the office just in case I have an...

Beyoncé And JAY-Z Dressed Up As Lil’ Kim And Biggie

Twitter

Beyoncé and her family never disappoint when it comes to Halloween costumes, and this year was no exception. For Kelly Rowland's party over the weekend, Queen Bey and her husband JAY-Z dressed up as another couple of music royalty: Lil' Kim and The Notorious B.I.G.
The few pictures from the evening only give glimpses of the Carters' looks, but eagle-eyed fans were quick to identify their costumes from the snaps. (Bey probably staged a photoshoot at home like she usually does with her outfits, anyway. We wouldn't be surprised if she posts some posed shots on Instagram soon.)

Lily-Rose Depp Puts a French Girl Spin On This Celebrity Shoe Trend

00-story-image-lily-rose-depp
The red shoe has been everywhere this season, with celebrities from Sienna Millerto Dakota Johnson making a bold statement below the ankle. While Miller wore Gucci’s classic loafers and Johnson took to suede ankle booties in the same shade, it seems there’s a more ladylike alternative, as demonstrated by Lily-Rose Depp. When the French-born, American-raised model stepped out yesterday in Los Angeles, she wore a pair of red shoes that looked like cleverly modified ballerina flats. With a pretty bow detail at the toe and a practical block heel, the choice of accessory felt as feminine as it did functional. And it was just what Depp needed to punch up a plain white slip dress, which featured delicate lacing at the neckline and barely-there...
