I'm slightly disappointed in this Britney.
With an economy that comes closer to resembling the 1920’s each day, there’s no better time than now to dress like you’re spending the night at the Speakeasy.[article courtesy of Nylon GUYS]
This summer, Cole Haan introduces modern shoes with an old soul (just not an old sole) in their new capsule collection Cole, Rood & Haan Co. They’re both named for and inspired by Cole Haan’s original brand, which began 81 years ago in 1928. Carrying a feeling of freedom, youth and classic American style, the shoes range from riding boots to relaxed boat shoes; the whole collection comes in brown or black leather.
Keep an eye out for their 2009 release and pick up a pair before they, once again, become part of the past.
:The Story:When I was young, I placed my baby teeth under my pillow and when i woke up I'd find a shiny new quarter. But whatever happened to those little teeth? Where did they go? Would I ever see them again?Many years later, a little tooth was standing at my door. It looked familiar. It's name was ickle. Welcome home, my milk toof!
The doctor will see you now - online.
There are a million excuses for not going to the dermatologist. You’re too tired, you’re too busy, you’re too overwhelmed.
It’s particularly true when it comes to seeing someone like Dr. Zein Obagi, a beloved Beverly Hills derm whose office examinations cost about the same as our monthly rent. You’d see him if you could, but geography, money, work, and life keep getting in the way.
But now, Dr. Obagi is making it even easier to get your skincare questions answered. He recently launched a virtual office, where you can log-on, get a long-distance examination, and get his tips, all through the internet.
Think of it as a house call for the 21st century. And while it might sound a bit sketchy, it’s anything but; there is a detailed questionnaire to answer, and “patients” can even submit a photo, so that Dr. Obagi gets a clear idea of just what your skin problems are. While he can’t write a prescription for you or give you a quick facial, you’ll get a detailed explanation of what you can do.
And the only thing better than getting rid of the doctor’s waiting room? Getting rid of it for free; through August, Dr. Obagi’s online consultations are completely free. Which means that you officially have no excuse not to get your skin checked out. If only our dentist could do the same thing…

Flats Out of a Vending Machine?
After dancing the night away in heels, female club-goers in Britain can still enjoy a comfortable trek home thanks to new vending machines that sell flats for just 5 pounds (about 8 bucks) a pair. "After getting tired of giving my girlfriend a piggyback home every Saturday night, I had a 'eureka' moment," says Rollasole founder Matt Horan of his clever invention. They aren't available in the US just yet, but shoe designer Eileen Shields—who counts Angelina Jolie as a fan—sells party slippers that are flexible enough to fold up and stash in your bag until you've hit your stiletto pain threshold. From June 12 to July 12, InStyle.com readers will get a free pair of fold-away party slippers with the purchase of full-priced heels. Just enter the code "InStyle Party Slipper" in the special instructions box when you place your order at Eileenshields.com. Trust us, your feet will thank you.
