Opening Day: The Next National Holiday?

Could you use another holiday away from the office? Chances are, the answer is yes. Good news – Budweiser created a petition to make Opening Day a nationally recognized holiday. And it’s already reached the minimum threshold of 100,000 signatures required to receive a response from the White House.

According to Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith, the campaign’s spokesperson, “The more than 100,000 people who signed the petition are just a fraction of the 1.3 million who will attend Opening Day games this year. The day is already an unofficial holiday, but now it’s time to make it official.”

We couldn’t agree more, Ozzie. Tell us, where do we sign?

The Midas Touch: Can These Gold Leggings Really Reduce Cellulite?

Imagine a world where your most comfortable leggings battled cellulite for you. Magical, right? Well, for a cool $200, you could have just that. Allegedly. Oh, and did I mention they were 24-karat gold leggings? I kid you not.

Gold Leggings

According to the Daily Mail, a company called Proskins has created compression leggings woven from 24-karat gold that use nanotechnology to reduce cellulite. Before you trade in your gold earrings and necklaces for these leggings, let’s all just take a second to remember the Sketchers Shape-ups fiasco. You know, the sneakers that claimed to tone – but didn’t? Yeah, I’m guessing this is just another too-good-to-be-true fitness claim for the fashion world. For now, I’ll still be sticking to the occasional jog and yoga class, thank you very much.

Your Momma’s Got Style

Prove it for a chance to have her featured on our login page

Mom Style

We’ll cut right to the chase: we’d be lost without our moms. Not to mention our aunts, sisters, grandmothers, and all the other women out there who have paved the way to great style by making sure we didn’t leave the house sporting a pair of flannel PJ pants.

So this Mother’s Day, we’ve figured out the best way to say thanks: by proving to the world that her style’s unrivaled.

Send us a photo of your mom’s impeccable style or tweet us her best fashion advice to put her name in lights – or at least the chance to appear on our login page or social media channels. You can submit your photos and advice via Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #momstyle.

We have a feeling this is one Mother’s Day gift she won’t soon forget.

Pin to Win: Our Love At First Sight Sweepstakes is Here

Rue La La + Madewell join forces this Valentine's Day

We interrupt our regularly scheduled dose of “Pinspiration” for something even more exciting: our Valentine’s Day Pinterest sweepstakes in partnership with Madewell. The stakes? One lucky winner will receive a $2,000 shopping spree – $1,000 to each Rue La La and Madewell.

The rules are simple: enter the sweeps on our Facebook page, then pin one thing you love from Rue La La, one thing you love from Madewell, and (at least) one other thing you’ve loved at first sight (spotted from anywhere). Go bananas. This is no time to show restraint.

For us, pinning what we love means anything from buffalo chicken pizza to an Hermès cuff bracelet – with plenty of style and Rueisms in between. But to get everyone’s gears rolling, we asked a couple of our staffers to create their own Pinterest boards (just to see what would make their lists).

Who: Rachel Solomon, Associate Creative Director
What she loves: We’re sensing a red trend – not to mention a commitment to Chanel.




Who: Domonic Gunn, Digital Designer
What he loves: Dom has a thing for tailored suits, and we have a sneaking suspicion his wife asked for those strappy sandals.

 

Enter our Rue La La + Madewell: Love At First Sight Pinterest Sweepstakes from February 5 to February 13, 2013, for the chance to win a $2,000 shopping spree – $1,000 to each Rue La La and Madewell.
