Two Days Left to Submit a Sketch to ModCloth's Make the Cut Contest

If you're anything like me, you've imagined-up a few perfect pieces of clothing that would really complete your wardrobe, and yet, you can never seem to find them while out shopping. Heartbreaking, indeed! So what's a girl (or guy) to do?

Sketch them (if you haven't already) and submit them to ModCloth's Make the Cut Contest. All you have to do is submit a little sketch (up to 5 per applicant) for your chance to win $500 and to have your piece patterned, produced and sold on ModCloth. But hurry -- the SF-based e-comm metropolis is only taking submissions through this Sunday at noon. 

SF Street Style: Color Block Dress + Adorable iPhone Case

Meet the lovely Abigail Holtz, a product manager at Google who worked on Boutiques.com. I caught up with her outside The Grove in Hayes Valley, in this colorful print -- a refreshing print for the office, or a fun weekend day dress. Taking a closer look, Abigail had some fabulous accessories going on, too.

Nowness Presents Animating Chanel

Peter Philips, Chanel's Global Creative Director of Makeup, created Animating Chanel, a quirky video capturing Chanel make-up products transforming into robots. The video hit the web yesterday, and caused a nerdy-tech-meets-Chanel-chic ruckus in the blogosphere.

Animating Chanel is just one of many genius products exclusively produced for NownessLVMH's luxe, minimalist online magazine.

The Best Brazilians for the Truly Fearless

Last week on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, reality star Kyle Richards got her first Brazilian wax on national television. Richards spread her legs and told her waxer, "I was thinking a Dorothy Hamill. I don't want the Telly Savalas!"

Regardless of which side you stand on, the question of waxing has always been the case for heated discussion, as evidenced in our Great Waxing Debate last week.

Whether you're one to bare it all or more of the "landing strip" type, you shouldn't drop your knickers for just anyone. So if you are going to take the plunge, here's our guide to the best Brazilians in SF.

Aprizi Gives Big Love to the Little Guys

Fashion is fast, and we, savvy shoppers, are always on the prowl for the next big thing. Sure, H&M is a staple and we love mega fashion houses like Prada, but isn't it great when you find a unique item from an amazing, emerging designer? 

Aprizi, a NYC-based startup, is taking a new approach to online shopping by filtering out the big brands and only featuring high-quality independent designs. Think Design*Sponge meets ShopStyle

Karl Lagerfeld Hearts Janelle Monae

Karl Lagerfeld is nothing if not particular. After all, you don't get living legend status in the fashion industry for not making a statement, and making or breaking a few people along the way. It's not often that you see him raving about anything or anyone, so when he praised singer Janelle Monae two weeks ago, after her concert in Moscow, it was kind of huge.

“Her way to move is unique,” Lagerfeld said. “It's really something she invented.” Big words for a rising star.

While her moves may define Monae, Lagerfeld's signature is definitely his iconic black and white.
