The Best Yoga Pants on the Planet – So Low…So Good

Friday, November 27th, 2009

So Low Yoga

So maybe you had a little too much Tofurkey and even your stretch denim is making faces at you….

So maybe your idea of working out is doing calf raises in Target while waiting in line on Black Friday…

So maybe you are one of those green juice drinking, yoga doing, marathon running girls who’s backsides make even straight girls weep…

So what? So I am now irrevocably convinced that a pair of So Low yoga pants is for you. I recently snagged two pairs and now understand what the fuss is all about – Cameron Diaz is a fan and probably gets sent about a zillion free pairs of yoga pants a week so the fact that she has worn the same pair of So Lows out on at least a few occasions, well it means a least a little bit of a something.  These pants are the perfect thickness, hit the belly at the perfect not too low spot, and have a supporting (read lifting) bit of stretch that makes these one damn flattering pair of yoga pants. Also, Manhattanite has a ton of different styles, umm hello sparkle waist band, how’s it going purple leopard, so you are sure to find at least a few pairs to make you smile.

A few tips, I’m glad I ordered the large, because they do run rather snug, and at 5’6′ – I could use probably about an inch hem on these to wear with my ballet shoes/bare feet. Also, there are several pairs on some serious sale right now at 50% off (though I would absolutely splurge on these at full price, and I never thought I would say that about workout pants) so my last tip is to snag them up before I do! Seriously.

The biggest shopping weekend of the year is here– which means just a few short weeks left to shop!  I tend to get really caught up on shopping for myself on Manhattanite, but in reality, there are tons of great items for gift giving throughout the year…


1.  Tolani Blue Feather Scarf perfect for :  your new boyfriend’s mother/mother-in-law; your au pair (particularly if you live in a Northern climate!); your eccentric, worldly aunt.

2. Andy Warhol Perpetual Calendar perfect for: your art appreciative roommate; that indie rock guy you just started dating.

3. Modern Geometry weekly organizer and business card holder perfect for: your entrepreneurial friend starting their own business; your hip, lawyer friend.

4. Dog-earred Diamond necklace (in sterling silver) perfect for: your “little sister” (whether through Big Brothers Big Sisters, your sorority, or real life!).

5. Cake 5 piece travel set + Party Girl Flex Flop + Miss Oops Critical Care Kit perfect for: your bff whose purse is so big & full of crap it gives her back pains; the jetsetter in your life; your stressed & frazzled workaholic sister/mother/aunt.

Get Into Some Anlo Denim!

Monday, November 23rd, 2009

One denim label to look out for on Manhattanite is Anlo, who seems to have got the “skinny” look well  sorted out in their dark and flattering shades. Not only are they super tight and super sexy, for their Fall/Winter 09 collection, they have come up with some very clean-cut and smooth designs equipped with subtle yet outstanding detail.

My favourite has got to be the Ella Studded Jean, as I have an obsession with studs. The studded detailing only covers the top part of the bottom, making it still easy to sit on and also not overwhelming the whole “rock chick” look. The exposed zip on the ankle is another fantastic add-on to this pair and it is definitely my denim choice to get for this season!

The Willa straight leg jean in midnight is just fantastic for nights out, and making black denim look far more interesting than usual. If you are thinking of leather pants, these actually offer an extremely similar look.

The wash on the Ellie jean with buttons is superb as well, i love the unique smoky greyish-blue wash and that you have the option to free up your ankles whenever you like!

I cannot wait to get my hands on a pair, so now I just need to see which wash/cut/style I am actually lacking in my wardrobe and then make the big decision! What do you think?

A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes: Disney Couture

Are you a Disney princess at heart?

Whether young or old, Disney’s whimsical world has left an imprint on many a girl’s dreams. Of course, most of us don’t have a Never Never Land – and as we grow older, our love for Disney become fond memories of our past. Now, with Disney Couture jewelry, you can incorporate a little of that nostalgia and magic into your everyday wardrobe!

Disney Couture jewelry features gold and silver-plated pieces mixing beloved icons like Tinkerbell, Cinderella’s castle and Snow White’s mirror with contemporary fashion. Guest designer Kidada Jones contributes fun and playful pieces combined with artful street style.

These pieces remind me of all my girlfriends who scramble to get the latest Disney Classic movie for the kids they don’t even have yet, just so they can share the enchantment they experienced when we were children. Here’s to a perfect holiday gift for the Disney princess(es) in your life!
