Christopher Lee Sauve's New Collection Is Obsession-worthy

"Classic core icons, pharmaceuticals, and tribalism. Sort of Valley of The Dolls meets National Geographic," says Christopher Lee Sauve of his new t-shirt collection.

That may sound confusing, but Sauve makes the unexpected mix work.  He's currently showing the collection in Tokyo, but it's simultaneously available at Addition Adelaide.

And if that's not quite busy enough for you, the designer's made a limited run of custom leather t-shirts for the Christopher Henry gallery in collaboration with Polar Buranastit and Edward Fong.

How long could you go internet free? Poll

I know, I know, this isn't a completely fair question because of the popularity and affordability of smartphones, netbooks, laptops, and other portable devices, and the thought of actually going intenet-free seems a little far-fetched. But after not being able to tear myself away from yesterday's biggest news story about Lindsay Lohan heading to jail and the restrictions she'll face, I couldn't stop thinking about how long I could go without Internet access (Lindsay's only communication with the outside world will be done via a public pay phone).

I don't think I'd be able to make it for a full week — maybe three or four days at most. For now, it sounds like Lindsay will only have to wait 23 days to update her Twitter account; how long could you go?

Quote of the day....Marc Jacobs

"OK, recently I watched every episode of Jersey Shore's first season. I don't know if it was any good and I certainly didn't learn anything, but it was definitely hypnotic and it gave my brain a vacation. As for music, I know everyone associates me with edgy rock, but there are times when I just want to hear Britney Spears singing 'Womanizer, Womanizer…' over and over. I know, I know, it's Britney! But I told you. I love imperfection."

Happy Birthday Miss Natalie Wood! <3

If Miss Natalie Wood was alive today, she would be celebrating her 72nd birthday. Growing up, I idolized her acting, her looks, and when I realized how tragically she had passed years before I was born, I was always intrigued into the real reasons behind her death. There are many skeptics who believe it was an accident, yet so many wonder if it was premeditated murder. Regardless, the young starlet passed too suddenly and way before she should have. One of my favorite novels is her biography, and after reading it, I found a new found respect for her, and also a great sadness. My favorite Natalie Wood films are "Gypsy", "Rebel Without A Cause", "West Side Story", and of course, "Miracle on 34th Street". RIP Miss Natalie, someday it will be honor to meet you!

Happy 30th Birthday Gisele

Happy birthday to Gisele Bündchen, who turns 30 today! Having been discovered in 1994, she's spent over half her life in the business, and has plenty to show for it, excluding cellulite, wrinkles, baby weight, and other signs of age and normalcy. The gorgeous woman and her inhuman legs lent her splendidness to the fall Roberto Cavalli campaign. Overall, not a bad way to turn 30.

Lindsay Lohan Is In Jail

I am clearly not shocked that I am writing about Lilo hitting the slammer. It was only a matter of time that the law would win against the freckled troubled child-star. Above, Lindsay Lohan surrenders to the court this morning in Los Angeles amid a crush of paparazzi. Did you all see the cameras? I'm surprised people were able to get a decent shot. She's clearly watched enough TruTV to know the right way to do the "walk": Lead with the hair. Also, the glittery gold explosion behind her? That's the death of a thousand child stars' dreams. But to whoever decided to throw the glitter- brilliant. We all know she won't be in jail for her whole sentence, due to the over-crowding of California prisons; however, I truly hope that maybe this stint in jail might just be what she needs to make a life-changing decision to straighten up and take her life seriously. Some detox, some brown hair dye, and she can try to get her career back, instead of becoming a tabloid goldmine.

Happy Birthdayyy Disneyland!

Walt Disney’s original Magic Kingdom, Disneyland, turns 55 years old this week. I am quite jealous of everyone who gets to be there this week to celebrate.

Babies: Thin Blue Line? or "Stork Bites"

Most mamas think they are done seeing little blue lines when they have a positive pregnancy test. However, many new moms see a similar line once their lil ones arrive. Many babies are either born with, or develop, a thin blue line on the bridge of their nose. Though there is no medical name for the mark, doctors believe that the condition is a combination of well-worked veins in the head and lil ones' thin skin. For most tots, the veins' appearance fades as they get older and there is no pain associated with their appearance. Our son Riley has a very noticiable tiny blue vein between his eyebrows, and I thought this was uncommon. Our doctor said it's normal and should slightly vanish as he gets bigger.

Did you experience the little blue line with your child?

Apply Lipstick, Get A Ticket?

We already know how dangerous it is to drive while distracted, and that's why the city of Troy, MI, isn't going to take it anymore. Starting July 29, drivers in the Detroit suburb will get a ticket if they're caught texting (already a statewide law), voicemailing, dashboard dining, or grooming behind the wheel.

Lots of you admitted that you apply makeup while driving. But sadly, tragic stories of driver distraction provide us all with wake-up calls. Lora Hunt, the Illinois woman who was polishing her nails while driving and therefore struck and killed a motorcyclist, was later found guilty of reckless homicide.

Many cities and states have laws against cell phone usage while driving, but do you expect to see more laws prohibiting primping?

Disney + Mac = Heaven for Maggie!!!

Love Disney (of course you do)? Love MAC (well, duh)? Then perhaps you might be interested in the new MAC and Disney line of products debuting this September. Like Hello Kitty and Barbie before them, Disney's character's will be featured on lipstick, powder, lip gloss, and blush.

The only difference? The collection is called "Venomous Villains," and instead of pretty princesses and cute sidekicks, four of cartoon history's biggest baddies will be the featured characters. I'm dying for Ursula and Malificent! I am truly giddy and more than excited for this! I have many of the MAC Hello Kitty items, but hello!? this is DISNEY people! I NEED this collection. Bad.

Bub's Bears= Kids Teddy Keepsake!! *New Mom's Must-Have!*

Mamas pay good money for their lil one's clothes, only to have them outgrow the cherished items in a matter of months. While some pieces are best handed down to friends with younger tots, others deserve a second life where they can continue to be loved daily.

Bubs Bears ($92) are patchwork teddy bears made out of fabric from your offspring's clothes. Each 17-inch bear is handmade using swatches from garments sent to their designers. Bears can be made using a central theme, such as one color or character, or can be mismatched to create a more wild-looking plush animal. Send the designers some information about the bear – who it is for, why it is being made, etc. – and they will include a birth certificate with it, adding to the sense of nostalgia you'll feel when you look at your wee one's baby clothes years from now.

Blake <3

Blake Lively was in Paris, France on location for some time filming Gossip Girl, but now she is back in New York City and is looking fabulous. Seen here on July 15th, filming new scenes with the rest of the ridiculously good looking cast, she appears to be floating like a butterfly in her beautiful cut-out style flowing gown. She has a pension for fabulous attire.
