Who Wore It Better: Lizzy Mercier Descloux vs. Marc Jacobs

I will never ever like the Sex Pistols but you have to admit that this shirt is pretty cool. For a Sex Pistols t-shirt. Lizzy accessorized hers with a classic red blazer, flag-shaped lapel pin, and what looks to be a sweater clip. Marc opted for a navy ‘do, some cartoon tats, and a pair of understated wool trousers. So beloved Cat Party readers: who do you think wore it better?

Mag Hag: Wooooo magazine

Are you curious to know if David Byrne thinks that pottery is a legitimate art form? If you answered yes then you should click this link immediately and purchase the current issue of Wooooo magazine. Wooooo is an interview-based magazine, kind of like Interview magazine, only less boring. It’s also kind of like Butt, minus all the gay stuff. It’s basically the funniest magazine that I have ever encountered. If you are really depressed you should just buy Wooooo and you probably won’t be depressed anymore. It’s also great for long bus rides, bathroom reading, and waiting in line at sample sales. And just when I thought that I couldn’t love Wooooo more, they make a t-shirt with cats eating tacos on it. CATS EATING TACOS!

TOPSHOP Fall '08

I haven't been feeling the offerings at Topshop for a while now, save for a few pieces here and there (shameful, I know). Thankfully Fall 2008 is looking mighty fine, just in time for the opening of the store in NYC.

View the full collection here.

Kiehl's Discount: One Day Left!

Sorry I'm a bit late on this but there's one more day to save 20% on your Kiehl's purchase both in-store and online. All you have to do is print out this flier and bring it to a Kiehl's store (click on the photo to make it bigger) or use the code "FAMILY" when purchasing online.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Olive Fruit Oil Deeply Repairative Hair Pak
I could probably go on for days about how awesome this stuff is. I used to dye my hair (black, my 17 year old self thought it was a good idea but it took years to remedy that mistake) and this was the only product that could keep it from feeling like straw. I don't dye my hair anymore but I still use it! The scent is perfect, it won't overpower any other perfume and is super subtle.

Deluxe Hand and Body Lotion with Aloe and Oatmeal
I have issues with body lotion. Probably because I hate most body lotions; they take forever to dry and are leave a gross slimy film. This is the only one that I've tried and actually like enough to apply daily as it absorbs really quickly and doesn't get all over my clothes.

Creme d'Elegance Repairateur
This is a great night cream for those with super dry skin, it doesn't leave an oily residue so it will stay on your face (not your pillow). Plus it doesn't cost $200 like so many other fancy face creams...yeah!

APC Fall 08: First Look

There's a sneak peak of the APC Fall '08 collection over at Nylon.

Looking good, can't wait to see the rest! I'm really liking the colors and layering... why do the French possess an innate power to layer perfectly while Americans usually end up looking like dowdy-puffy-scragglemuffins? Not fair!
