It’s not the first time that Gilt.com, the upscale flash sale site has offered automobiles for sale online, but noteworthy with such a fashionable brand as Fiat. The sale, which began today at 12pm EST, features a Fiat 500 by Gucci plus a trip to Italy for $27,750 (honest to God, a bargain). Later in the day a Fiat 500 Cabrio and 500 Abarth will go on sale, for a price not listed until sale time.
I bought my husband one of these Uglydolls, thinking he’d dig the quirky, Kid Robot-type of figure, but he just stared. “Thank you, what is it?” he said. Clearly, he didn’t “get” how brilliant they really are.

Amy Winehouse, dead at 27, wasn’t always the train wreck she was cartooned in the media. It’s easy to forget that with the flashbulbs of paparazzi around her. Pictured here in 2007, this candid photo on stages shows an actually sexy Winehouse.
I actually thought of that while interviewing Kardashian, when she mentioned how her step-dad Bruce Jenner had once been featured in SUCCESS. Something about Kim saying, step-dad, struck me as very human and reminded me for all her caricatures in the media, she is a real person. (I think.)

In lighter news, file this under that’s a new one: a Silent Disco. It’s apparently where everyone straps on a pair of headphones and raves to their own beat. The dance floor is completely silent. Here’s a video.

If you’ve been feeling guilty about all those Gilt Groupe, Rue La La, Swirl and Beyond the Rack sales you’ve been shopping, not to worry.
In marriage by-law 7, article 1,paragraph c, the rule clearly states every three personal clothing purchases are neutralized by one clothing purchase for your spouse. JackThreads is a cool, guys-only flash-sale site to accomplish just that. Here’s a funny sneaker keychain.
