Target is stepping up its sexy factor just in time for Valentine’s Day. Dita Von Teese is launching a ’50s-inspired lingerie collection that consists of 26 different bras, panties, garters and bustiers in fabrics like satin, leopard and fishnet. The Von Follies by Dita Von Teese line of lingerie will debut in Australia on February 8th and in Target stores worldwide over the next year.
“There are so many vintage lingerie pieces I love that I haven’t been able to find in all my years of collecting. I wanted to design pieces that are tributes to my vintage obsessions, to make them beautiful and functional, while modernizing them for everyday wear.”

Leave it to one of my favorite mega-retailers to take the whole concept of “guest designers” and flip it on its head (again!). Instead of tapping a big-name designer for their latest accessories collaboration, Target plucked beloved-by-the-stars boutique owner Jaye Hersch. Just about every celeb in Hollywood frequents Hersch’s boutique, Hollywood Intuition, so I couldn’t be more excited—or obsessed—with the small, totally on-trend line of accessories she produced. I can picture Nicole Richie in these glasses and Jessica Szohr rocking this shoulder purse that doubles as a belt bag, right?
Lots of love,

An Introduction to the Electric Milk Frother
On a recent trip to New York, we became fixated on this little kitchen gadget when a friend made us afternoon coffee. It works in about 30 seconds and whip plain low-fat milk into satisfyingly silky foam – plus, it’s simple enough to let you tap your inner barista, even in an early-morning haze.

Thanks to three tech-y new hotels, seeing Europe on a dime just got a whole lot easier—and way chicer!
In Amsterdam: CitizenM
Two locations, one near the airport and one in the city center, make this mini chainlet not only one of the cities most affordable options, but also its most strategically placed. Rates start at $109 for a single room with a private bath and free wi-fi.
In London: Yotel
What technically started as a refresher stop for business travelers going through Heathrow and Gatwick airports has actually become a great option for budget-minded travelers just looking for a nap and a quick shower. For $36, you get a teensy capsule room—only 75 square feet—with a bed, shower, and workstation for four hours—each additional hour after that is $10.
In Maastricht: Qbic
The second location of this completely self-service hotel opens later this year—the original is in Amsterdam. You check yourself in at kiosks that work just like the ones in your local airport, and use your key card to purchase everything from organic snacks to items you forgot to pack for the duration of your stay. $91 gets you a tiny capsule room with private bath and access to the fitness facilities.
What to pack:
