totally good idea

Dollhouse hearts Check out this great idea for a DIY studded bracelet. Totally affordable. Totally cute.

Alternate idea: go to 6th Avenue in the 30s and get some colorful plain plastic bangles for 6 bucks a pop. Decorate with rhinestones or pyramid studs. All you need is some Crazy Glue. And the studs. And the rhinestones. Well, you get the idea.

dollhouse boots featured on demi couture!

Dollhouse Boots featured on Demi Couture
[click image to enlarge]

Dollhouse Kennedy Ankle Boots are a hit -- both price-wise and style-wise -- with fashion blogger, Victoria Potter of Demi Couture. She writes on September 14:

Norwegian newcomer Phi has some amazing pieces, but you’ll have to be prepared to pay for them. Dollhouse seems to have created a hybrid boot between these Burberry Prorsums ($985) and these Phi boots ($995).

Instead of going the route of bankruptcy, check out the Robson Street Winners (or whichever one is near to you, stock may vary though) and give these Dollhouse babies a whirl. They’re incredibly affordable ($40 at Winners, $60 on the Dollhouse site).

They’re incredibly comfortable due to the bit of platform and the tire tread grip sole. They aren’t made of leather, but for this price, who cares?! For a piece that’s very on the moment trendy, you can’t go wrong with these boots.

I’m quite happy with my pair.

Thanks so much Victoria!! And we totally ship to Canada.

Demi Couture is a visually pleasing, very well-written blog with good insights. We think you'll love it.

back in stock!!

Shop to your heart's content, because the boot you have all been waiting for, asking for, hoping for, is BACK IN STOCK. Yes, you guessed it. The Dollhouse Zest Work Boot, made very famous by Teen Vogue! Available right now on, both in the featured color -- tan with green laces -- and in black with blue laces. Both pretty great.

Don't just stand here reading this. Get shopping, before someone else buys your size!

fashion blueprint: outfits for the week!

Follow our "Fashion Blueprint" to create outfits for the week. With a few key Dollhouse pieces, you can mix and match to make endless combinations. (That's where your creativity comes in.) Plus, it's much more economical, yes?

Start with your Core Outfit:
A top and skinny jeans (what else?)
Day 2
Go dressy!
Day 3
Add some color! Bright color is very IN for Fall.
You get the idea. Don't forget to add some inner layers (half off intimates until 9/14), some Dollhouse fab shoes,* and a cute cropped Bomber when the weather gets a bit chillier. We love the Dollhouse Cropped Bomber.

*Can we just tell you? The Gladiator style shoe/sandal/boot (you name it) is so IN! We just walked by the Tents at Bryant Park (NYC Fashion Week) this morning, and saw wall-to-wall gladiators. Everyone attending the Shows was wearing glads. You'll be glad to wear glads too.

cupcakes, revisited

Yes, you can believe your eyes.
Cupcakes reach new heights. And lengths.
[image from Cupcakes Take the Cake]

Okay okay, so yes we are obsessed with cupcakes. But so are you. Just admit it. You have a problem and so do we. First the frosting shots. And now this. Cupcake kebabs!

Q: Do you eat the kebabs as if you are a sword swallower, or do you just shave slivers off, like shawarma and enjoy all the flavors as a mélange? Hmm. We'll get back to you on the proper etiquette for cupcake kebabery.

fashion's night out hits the streets

She's got the look. Now imagine 100 of this girl.
[image from Fashion's Night Out official Website]

Picture this. 9:30 am. Wednesday, September 9. A beautiful, strange and wonderful army of fashion models, uniform height, each wearing Fashion's Night Out t-shirts and 4" heels. A sea of natural young fresh faces, slightly wavy long hair parted in the middle, most of them blonde. Why weren't there more brunettes, I wonder...

"The look" is quite similar to the girl pictured above. About 100 girls, in fact, (were there 200?) arranged in fairly orderly rows, poised to run across Sixth Avenue toward the Tents at Bryant Park. A woman in charge wearing a printed satin blouse stands opposite her beautiful army on a raised hydraulic platform with a megaphone giving the command. A man dressed somewhat like a FedEx delivery guy, but not exactly, single-handedly stops traffic at 41st Street and Sixth Avenue. He's got guts. Taxis and buses start honking like crazy. On cue, models break into giant smiles and lighthearted screams and charge across the street.

Take 1. Cut.

They do this six more times. I cannot believe my eyes. Only in New York. I am so happy I got to see this, even though I didn't have my camera on me. Why oh why did I leave my camera at home?

I walk another block towards the Dollhouse Showroom, and no one has any idea what is going on just a block away. No one has any idea there is an army of beautiful girls charging towards the Tents at Bryant Park. Ah fashion. Ah New York. How I love you both.

The story doesn't end here. Check out more discoveries about this mysterious event on our Twitter page.

UPDATE: September 10, 2009
Yes, this is what I saw! Photo by Patrick Demarchelier! Yes, I said Patrick Demarchelier!!!

just take a little off the top, thanks

A cupcake frosting shot? Just the frosting? Not even a little sliver of cake on the bottom? You're kidding right?

You probably already know about this crazy cupcake trend; but I just learned about it two seconds ago, and feel compelled to talk about it for a moment. Yes, the cupcake craze continues to flourish in NYC and all around the country. Who would have thought it would last for this many years? New Yorkers are usually more fickle -- except, apparently, when it comes to all things cupcake.

Cute little cupcake boutiques, like Babycakes on the Lower East Side (Broome btwn Orchard & Ludlow), sell the essence of the cupcake in addition to their regular menu. Yes, 75 cents will buy you enough frosting to make you diabetic. I am not kidding. And on the West Coast, Sprinkles has you covered too. They even decorate their frosting shots with toppings.

My advice? Have a protein shot with your frosting shot for a slower burn. ;-)

At Sprinkles in LA, you can have your frosting shot and toppings too!!

leaving las vegas

The MAGIC show closes tonight at 6pm. What are your plans for after the show, before your Red-Eye? Here's are some thoughts for last-minute fun (the relaxing kind, because you need it). Good show guys!

Mandara Spa at Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas
Mandara Stone Therapy. Using heated Basalt stones, your mandara therapist will soothe and smooth away stress and tension in the body using Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage strokes and Chakra balancing stone placement. Simply divine.

Ah, the Peppermill. Such a great place.

Pictures don't do the Fireside Lounge justice. You have to see it in person.
The lighting is icy blue and fiery red. And the patented firepit is pretty cool.
Yes, it's patented technology.

The Fireside Lounge at the Peppermill

This is such a great spot to sip something tasty and take in your last moments in Las Vegas. It's the 60s-style Las Vegas of the movies. Yes it's that good. The lighting is incredible, and the fire pit is mesmerizing. Definitely stop by before your Red Eye. On the way out, have some eggs, bacon and hash browns in the restaurant. You're not going to get fed on the plane.

2985 Las Vegas Blvd South
Las Vegas, NV 89109

The Water Show at the Bellagio

Can you really ever get enough of this water show? Well I can't. Even in the 106 degree heat. Wait til dark, it will cool down. Then stroll over to The Peppermill. Have a good flight everyone!

and now, a sweet treat for the new yorkers who didn't go to magic

Equal opportunity snacking is what we stand for here at Dollhouse. Earlier we posted for our Dollhouse sales team currently at MAGIC about a great cupcake spot that delivers all over Las Vegas. Half our company is at MAGIC as we speak (booth #JR2600), showing all the great new styles from Dollhouse. The other half is here in NYC, thinking about snacking as 3pm approaches. Miss Softee to the rescue. Yes you read that right. Miss not Mister. If you love the sweet/salty combo, and who doesn't, Miss Softee is currently at 40th & 5th selling today's special: Potato Chip Choco Dip Cone. I know! Are our eyes deceiving us? We'll just have to walk over and sample for ourselves.
