In late 2010 Snooki launched a line of slippers with Happy feet, the oversized fuzzy footwear she scuffles around in on "Jersey Shore." Happy Feet founder Pat Yates told the New York Post that "she crashed our server the first time she tweeted about our products." Snooki recently put her name on DiamondShark's limited editon pendant called the Snooki Party Ball 2011. It sells for $45 and commemorates her New Year's Eve appearance on MTV when she dropped inside a ball at midnight on national television. Daniel Weinstock, a partner at DiamondShark.com told the Post that the necklace will "probably sell out."

ThinkstockLiposuction is one of the most desired surgeries amongst women, but it's also potentially one of the most dangerous. Plus, have you ever seen seen one of those reality shows where the patient is getting lipo with that horrible vacuum hose thing? Ugh, so gross. So we spend our days doing squats and lunges and rubbing fancy creams on our thighs in hopes of getting rid of bumps and bulges, of which, let's face facts, are going nowhere. Or are they?Read More »from Fat freezing! The affordable, painless alternative to liposuction
Recently the FDA approved a technique called CoolSculpting by Zeltiq which promises to freeze off your fat. This cryolipolysis (aka fat-freezing) machine targets hips, thighs, bellies, arms, and any other place you want slimmed and chills it down to a point where fat cells are damaged. These lipocyte cells die off in the next few weeks and are broken down by your liver and lymphatic system.
According to an article in W, Santa Monica dermatologist Ava Shamban has used the CoolSculpting treatment on over 700 patients so far and charges around
If you were worried about Ralph Lauren overspending on his collection of fancy vintage cars, don't. / Getty ImagesWe often hear about which retail chains are doing well during the recession, but just how much do the top fashion CEOs make? Millions. Women's Wear Daily ran down a list of the top 10 earners in 2010, and the amounts are jarring. Take a look at the year's highest salaries, which include bonuses, stock options and other compensations.
- Michael Jeffries, Abercrombie and Fitch: $36.3 Million. And to think, all we got was a popped collar and a case of bedbugs.
- Glen Senk, Urban Outfitters: $29.9 Million. Urban has beat the recession, but in order to see the money himself, Senk must stay with the company till 2015.
- Ralph Lauren, Polo Ralph Lauren: $27.7 Million. People refer to the whole style as "polo" shirts. This guy is loaded.
- Roger Farah, Polo Ralph Lauren: $19.3 Million. He's only the COO and president, but he makes more than most CEOs. Not bad!
- James O'Donnell, American Eagle Outfitters: $17.9 Million. Remember when Aerie stores launched? There's already 137 of
These ladies all got the red plaid memo before heading in to workA weird phenomenon occurs when women work together in the same environment every day. No, we don't mean our periods syncing up, though that's true too. Ladies begin to dress alike. Perhaps you liked your assistant's skirt and subconsciously bought a similar one. Possibly you saw your boss wear a gorgeous red cashmere sweater and somewhere deep in your fashionable brain decided you'd start wearing red too. Maybe you and a coworker hit up Nine West after work and both bought the same pair of flats. We're not sure of all the reasons how or why this occurs, but before you know it you're having a Doublemint gum twins moment while walking to the copy machine. Now a new blog is documenting fashion twins and triplets in the work place.Read More »from New fashion blog documents matching coworkers

Just within the past decade we've seen boot-cut, low-rise, distressed, colored, acid wash, and skinny jeans rise and fall in popularity. We've even been introduced to surprising fads like pajama jeans and jeggings! If Spring '11 Fashion Week was any indication, the recent '80s and '90s fashion revivals have made way for a return to the 1970s.

Designers like Marc Jacobs, Rebecca Taylor, Tracy Reese, and Chris Benz all sent '70s-inspired silhouettes down their spring runways while the flared and wide-leg pants characteristic of the disco era were included in collections by Anna Sui, Tory Burch, Derek Lam, and Jason Wu to name a few. Many of these flared pants were accompanied with a high waist-a controversial style in fashion, as many feel it is not always the most flattering cut. But fashion Read More »from Designers and fashion experts agree: 70s-style, high-waisted flared jeans making a comeback

Cap-sac: the fannypack for your headLet's get one thing straight. Fannypacks were never cool. Not even the Gucci one Carrie Bradshaw wore on "Sex and the City" trying to be edgy. Practical? Maybe.

ReutersJohn F. Kennedy had his boat shoes. Reagan wore cowboy boots and Richard Nixon chose formal wingtips to frolic on the beach. But, last week, while on holiday in Hawaii, President Barack Obama may have boldly gone where no president before him had gone while on vacation: he wore flip-flops. In public.news outlets, style watchers, and even historians have labored extensively over the appropriateness of Obama's footwear choice.
"I can't say I've seen a president's toes before," presidential historian Jane Hampton Cook, author of an upcoming children's book "What Does the President Look Like?" told the New York Post. "But I don't think this is a big deal. Your footwear belongs to the occasion. If you're on the beach buying your daughter snow cones, I don't think you can beat him up for this."

Christian Louboutin Rollerboy Spikes, $1,245The Transportation Security Administration has been extra tough on passengers recently, but we never thought fashionable items could be considered a security threat. Taz Arnold was passing through airport security on January 2 when TSA agents attempted to confiscate his $1,245 Christian Louboutin Rollerboy Spike shoes. According to his Twitter account, officials called them weapons. After much deliberation, Arnold was allowed to keep his fancy footwear with a warning that they very well could be taken away next time.Read More »from $1,245 spiked Louboutins deemed "weapon" by TSA
TSA officials examine the potentially dangerous shoes. Photo via @TazArnoldThe TSA regulations website says metal scissors and hand tools are permitted on flights, including
screwdrivers under seven inches in length. We think those might be able to inflict a bit more damage than a studded shoe, but we suppose the TSA were just trying to play it safe.
