Over The Top

slide_3074_44483_largeWith Halloween right around the corner, we’re so glad that The Huffington Post has gathered pictures of inappropriate costumes. We’re not offended by much, but some of these costumes are a little surprising to say the least.

Glamour has their eye on Paris Hilton’s most recent up-do. What do you think?

Chanel seems to be into do it yourself manicures this season, with lines of green and now purple nail polish, as highlighted by Nylon Magazine.

Philadelphia Magazine posted a slideshow from Utley All-Star Animals, a night of shopping at Boyds which benefits the Pennsylvania SPCA.

Glamour highlighted these products back in February. On a dreary day like today when you might not want to wear wellies, we’re thinking they’re not such a bad idea. First off there are heel covers from Sole Mates that cover your heels, to prevent you from sinking into the grass.

According to their website, “The patented design of the SoleMates High Heeler™ is mechanically engineered to fit snugly on most heels and yet the flexible material grips securely without damaging the heel or compromising the aesthetics of the shoe.” Since we sometimes sink into the grass, we’re willing to give these babies a try.

Also highlighted in Glamour were Swims galoshes which are the chicest rain shoes we’ve ever seen. The rest of their line can be found on the swims website, which has a gorgeous layout and even tells you how many rain days cities from around the world have. While Philly isn’t included, New York is with 95 days of rain a year! It’s a far cry from Las Vegas with 18 rain days a year. Geeze.

Lastly, a model from the Ralph Lauren campaign was allegedly fired for weighing in at 120 pounds. At 5′10″ apparently that’s too much. Perhaps her firing paired with attention being paid to plus size models will lead to changes in the fashion industry?

Dear PW Style,

“It’s” is a contraction meaning “it is.” “Its” is the possessive.

Pass it on!

Your Pal,
