BABEWATCH: Madewell Design Director Kin Ying Lee

September 21st, 2010 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Kin Ying Lee with Alexa Chung at the Alexa Chung for Madewell collection launch

Name: Kin Ying Lee

Occupation: Design Director of Madewell

Why She’s a Babe: Everything at Madewell, J.Crew’s little sister store, is cute: their jeggings (yes, we’ve been brainwashed into saying this word with a straight face), their Alexa Chung collabo, even their head designer, Kin Ying Lee. We love the design sensibility Kin brings to Madewell–classic but cool–we love how the online shopping site uses Asian models, and we love Kin’s adorbs dimples. If we could buy those like we buy jeggings, we probably would, too.

Alexa Chung For Madewell Has Arrived!

September 9th, 2010 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Gals. If you’re into what “trend forecaster” Nina Stotler calls the “quirky coquette” look that seems to be everywherrre this fall and is, as Stotler says, “currently embodied by young stars like Alexa Chung”–who’s our kind of babe–you can buy it for a reasonable-ish price at Madewell, J. Crew’s younger sister store, which launched their Alexa Chung for Madewell line today.

(And, no, this isn’t a sponsored post, although Madewell really should pay me for this shit and also Diana for being a walking advert–and a hot one at that–for their jeggings, which she wore when we appeared on the cover of Hyphen.)

Since I couldn’t sleep last night, I ended up scouting out the collection early and buying this top instead:

Diana and Jen’s Excellent Ebates Shopping Adventure [Sponsored]

June 25th, 2010 | 8 comments | Posted by Jen & Diana

JEN: Attention, Ebates shoppers

DIANA: (channeling Bono) “Uno, Dos, Tres… Catorce! (14?) Hallo… hallo…”

JEN: Don’t you think Ebates should have a thing like K-Mart, like the Blue Light Special?

DIANA: My parents used to tell me that they got me as a baby at a Blue Light Special.

JEN: That reminds me…did you hear about the meth heads who tried to sell their baby outside a Wal-Mart?  Too bad your parents weren’t there, cuz the baby was a bargain, only $25! And Ebates has a 1% cash back deal with Wal-Mart, so…

DIANA: They also could’ve put it on eBay, which has a 1-3% Ebate.

JEN: The meth really clouded their judgment.

DIANA: Hear that, kids?  Just say NO.

JEN: Enough about discount babies, what did you buy using our Ebates cashola?

DIANA: Well…first, I had to get a replacement foundation for the one I lost in Oklahoma last month. Sigh. Somewhere in the rural backwoods of Tulsa, some hotel employee is walking around with a really dewy, smooth, flawless complexion. Bitch!  It’s the Chanel Vitalumière in 41, Natural Beige. SPF 15, so I don’t get too tan in the face and look, as my Hardass Asian Grandma would say, “like a worker.”

JEN: You are naturally tan in the face though!

DIANA: Yeah. My grandma always frowned and made the clucking sound: “Ohhhh… you Continue reading Diana and Jen’s Excellent Ebates Shopping Adventure [Sponsored]
