I love the ombre look and have done it several times. I saw the pin from Glitter, She Wrote with instructions on a plastic wrap marble look and since I already had an appointment today, I thought I would try this out. It is always hard for me to pick a color, but pink is my favorite so I decided to go with that for my base.
I started with two coats of pink and waited approximately 6 minutes for them to dry. Six minutes was not long enough, and I immediately smudged my nail trying to cut the plastic wrap. Luckily, I was going to add a messy color on top, so I didn't have to bother with fixing it, and you can't even see where that error was. Finally, a technique works even if you have smudges and dings!
Jimmy Choo's new website launches today.
The acclaimed footwear brand's highly-anticipated new project, Stylemakers - an interactive site featuring a photo gallers of street style images - is set to go live. Members of the public are invited to upload a picture of themselves wearing a Jimmy Choo creation - shoes or bag - and share the image at www.choo247.com.
The website is categorized according to location - with sections including London, England, New York, America, Shanghai, China and Sao Paolo in Brazil - and each city has a different ambassador. In London, Caroline Issa is the label's muse for the project. The website has launched to coincide with the brand's new Choo 24:7 collection, which aims to provide the perfect footwear wardrobe for every shoe need.
Stylemakers is the latest new venture for Jimmy Choo.
Can't shop at a retail store that doesn't publish its own
catalogue fashion magazine? Me either. Thankfully, Topshop has jumped on that trend trade and finally published 214, which has landed in select stores.
"SELECT STORES?!" asks the U.S. customer. Don't worry, they want your money, too, which is why they've made the Spring/Summer 2011 issue available online!
The main editorial, "Shades of Summer," -- photographed by Saga Sig and styled by Anna Trevelyan -- highlights all the bohemian meets '70s products in the line. Check out the front cover photo after the jump.

A couple of days ago, we hit up the Chic Dish Twitter account and asked our followers to send in a picture of the kicks that they were wearing at that very moment. It was an experiment, and if 20 responses came in, we would have given a $20 Zappos gift certificate away randomly to one of the submitters. Unforunately, we only got 17 submissions, so no giveaway on this one—however, we are going to do this regularly, so be on the lookout, and be sure to follow Chic Dish on Twitter.
That said, we had a great time checking out the submissions, all of which you can find after the jump, along with the Twitter user who sent it in. Go take a look, and let us know what you think - any favorites?
Edit: Okay, we are getting a few questions about the roll of toilet paper in the above photo—we checked with @pinksage, and apparently, she has “the sniffles” and was too lazy, or broke (have you seen the economy lately), to do it up right and grab a box of Kleenex.
