Hautelinks: Week of 2/23/12


Hautelinks - your weekly source for the best of the web

* Okay, this is my personal favorite link because I am officially addicted to Pinterest (P.S. Are you following the CF Pinterest page yet?): The new blog Pinterest, You Are Drunk highlights the most bizarre/hilarious/scary/amazingly awful things that people add to their pin boards, with witty commentary to boot.

* Okay, it may not even be SPRING yet, but we’re already lusting over so many Fall 2012 collections. One of our faves? Burberry FW 2012 – practical, elegant, and oh-so cool.

* On a similar note, with New York Fashion Week behind us, Glamour breaks down the dos and don’ts of Fall 2012 trends.

* Hahaha, this is SO true: The Life of a Fashion Writer, in Meme form.

* Real Simple shows you how to banish a bad mood in 15 minutes.

* If the weather has been less than fabulous where you are lately, you need The Beauty Department’s rainy day makeup must-haves. Must try that setting spray!

* 16 Celebrities Photobombing Other Celebrities, from The Frisky. The Hugh Laurie one made my day.

* An ongoing controversy in the fashion industry that we think is worth knowing about: Is anyone stepping up to protect underage models?

* Jazzi McG did a fantastic DIY version of the Givenchy Fall/Winter ’11 Final Toe Heels – the project is almost unbelievably easy, to boot.

* Another fun shoe DIY we want to test out: Geometric Wedges, via Sincerely Kinsey.

* Haha, amazing: Sh*t Fashion Girls Say… at New York Fashion Week.

* One of our favorite bloggers, Garance Dore, gives you an intimate look into Fashion Week from her perspective in her new video series.

* CollegeCandy celebrates one of their favorite budget beauty products, and it’s one of our all-time faves, too.

* Kids Explain Marriage, from The Gloss. “Tell your wife she looks pretty, even if she looks like a truck!” Aw, romance.

* Fashion news alert: Are you ready for Banana Republic x Mad Men round 2?

* Got a few minutes to waste? Koalas to the Max is just cool. (Keep moving your mouse, you’ll get it!)

* Another link for the random/cool pile: The Colour Clock is a website that “represents time as a hexidecimal color value” – design geeks, this is for you.

* Okay, one more: Geeky Tattoos is a blog dedicated to, well, just that – photos of nerd-tastic ink from around the world. Pretty awesome!

* 50 Bold, Beautiful, and Brilliant Package Designs, from Life Scoop. Gorgeous packaging sells me every time.

* Refinery 29 shows you how to wear the bright mascara trend.

* Also from R29, 5 Ways to Elevate Your Jeans-And-Tee Uniform. We’re big fans of white jeans for spring, too.

* 33 Ways to Stay Creative – print this out and put it next to your desk! Great reminders for a stressful day.

* Eek, this is gross: Eyelash Extensions? Watch Out for Formaldehyde. (To be honest, I don’t know anyone who has had these done, but I’ve always been curious… and am less so now.)

* If you need some relaxing music, this playlist of acoustic hip hop covers would be perfect background noise for exam studying or paper-writing.

* Cool project idea: DIY Dip Dye Collar. Kind of genius!
