  • The First Wearable 24 Karat Gold Shoes Are Here! But, Would You Wear Them?

    Behold the first pair of wearable pumps made of gold!

    Alberto Moretti is going for the gold with the creation of the first wearable pair of 24-karat gold shoes. For the ladies, there's a pair of heels, and for the guys, loafers. Each is covered in velvet and drenched in 24-karat gold. But expect to fork over some serious coinage for these shoes as prices start at $2,650 (or 2,000 euros).

    According to the brand's Facebook page, the shoes were created in collaboration with HORO, a brand that has also made gold leaf T-shirts.

  • The Do's and Don'ts of Wearing High Heels

    According to a recent survey released by the College Of Podiatry, 2,000 women (and men!) reported foot pain within an hour of wearing their heels. At least 20 percent reported that the pain begins within 10 minutes and a third reported walking home barefoot after a night of dancing.

    The best way to kill the foot pain is to simply not wear heels. But, who (us included!) is going to do that? Instead, we reached out to Dr. Rock Positano, Director of the Non-Surgical Foot And Ankle Service Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, for the do's and don'ts when it comes to wearing some of our favorite heels.

    DO always purchase your heels later in the day and not early in the morning.

  • 10 of the Craziest Leggings Ever

    There was a time when wearing black leggings made a bold fashion statement. Now, you can't turn heads in a pair of stretchy pants unless you've got the face of Karl Lagerfeld imprinted on your thigh. Ever since 2011, the fashion industry has seen a rise in the demand for pants-less pants.

    According to Women's Wear Daily, some designers have responded by offering pants with "shaping benefits such as tummy control and derriere enhancement." Others however, have gone in the opposite direction, throwing caution to the wind and letting their imaginations go wild.

    "Designers are artists," The Luxury Spot's Bryce Gruber, tells Yahoo Shine. "They're all sorta free spirited hippie types…so obviously intergalactic leggings are fair game."

    Fair is a relative word.

    "I've noticed a slow uptick in the patterned leggings trend," says Tamar Anitai of The Fashion Binge."Unless you've got inches to spare, patterned leggings will make you look shorter, wider and a lot like Pippi Longstocking."

    But, style

  • 7 Heatless Hairstyles to Wear This Summer

    Hair is considered to be the ultimate accessory for women; however, it can quickly turn into one of your greatest enemies during the hot summer months. From frizz to limpness, it's easy to rely on hot tools as the best way to tame your strands into some sort of stylish behavior. We say put down the blow dryers and curling irons and work with your natural texture —no heat involved.

    "Hair can be worn more natural and organic looking in the summer," Patrick Melville, owner of the Patrick Melville Salon in New York tells Shine. "My philosophy is longer hair in the summer, so you can have more versatility and with the climate being warmer, you can let your hair dry naturally. Think about growing your hair out in the spring and summer and going shorter in the fall and winter as clothing necklines go up."

    We recruited Melville to give us the lowdown on how to achieve some of summer's chicest styles without having to apply a lick of heat. --Andrea Arterbery, Shine Staff

  • Puppy Born with Mustache: Happy Friday!

    This is the cutest puppy ever!

    Here's some later afternoon cuteness to kick off your weekend.

    No, your eyes aren't deceiving you. That definitely is a mustache that you're looking at on this adorable puppy and apparently it's something that he was born with!

    This little guy is Inigo Montoya and the picture was uploaded onto Reddit by his owner who goes by the name peach_and_garlic_pie. Also known as Monty, he was born during the month of Movember (which is really November and when men everywhere grow mustaches to raise awareness and funds for men's health issues). How perfect is that? Since then, Monty has taken the internet by storm with his supreme cuteness and all we can think about is giving him a snuggle. What a cutie!
