Rebecca Minkoff has expanded her growing collection to incorporate small accessories as a staple. Her upcoming line of tech accessories is entirely cool (more to come on that soon), but one of her most sought-after designs is her pouches. The simplistic coin wallet is turned into the Rebecca Minkoff cool girl must-have with quirky wording on the front.

This is my new favorite pouch, in coral bubble leather, that reads “My diet starts tomorrow!” on the front. With summer knocking at our doorsteps, this is an entirely true saying for many of us right now. (more…)

Bravo did it to us again last night. Instead of making one episode about the buildup to a not-particularly-interesting event and then the event itself, they promised they’d do that, and then they split it into two. That means that we watched a bunch of people doing absolutely nothing last night while they waited around for Gretchen to perform in Vegas, and then she didn’t actually perform. Next week! Next week, they promise. In the meantime, Heather went on an audition and everyone else did things that I can’t even remember now, 14 hours after the show aired. That’s how much those things didn’t matter.

And as a bit of a housekeeping note, I thought I’d mention that I’m indeed not recapping the New Jersey housewives this season. Not only does it conflict with Mad Men, but interest in the Housewives shows in general seem to be down, both here and elsewhere on the Internet. The last season of Real Housewives that you guys really seemed to care about was Beverly Hills, so after this season is over, we’re taking a Housewives hiatus until it comes around again. And now, on to the recap. (more…)
