    The Look: Foxes via Caroline's Mode 
    Confession: I already own five jumpsuits, but this image of Foxes just convinced me to make room in my closet for one more. The singer's plaid onesie is just quirky enough to warrant a double-take on the street, yet incredibly flattering and wearable....sort of like she just threw it on and ran out the door. Especially during the winter when you don't feel like, you know, thinking about what to wear, this is perfect. 

    The FaceClinique Nude Nail Enamel 
    For anyone who's going on a nail art detox or just looking to give your winter look a little polish (sorry!), you need to have these new Clinique lacquers. Available in eight different colors ranging from pale peach to deep plum, they're an entirely different kind of neutral--one that's understated but definitely not boring.

    The News: Beyonce and Jay Z to perform "Drunk In Love" at the Grammy's
    Finally, the news we've all been waiting for! Psh, as if we needed another reason to stay home and watch the show on Sunday night...

    The Inspiration: Zoe Kazan for Warby Parker
    Even though the Karen Walker eyeglasses collection (starring little kids, no less!) will always have a special place in my heart, there's no denying the cuteness that is Zoe Kazan in this Leith Clark for Warby Parker campaign. I've never been happier NOT to have 20/20 vision. 

    The Song: "Passing Out Pieces"-- Mac DeMarco
    About half of the NYLON office harbors a not-so-secret crush on Mac DeMarco-- I mean, c'mon!--so news of the Canadian musician's new single was big. It's the latest off of his upcoming album Salad Days, so take a break from listening to "Baby's Wearing Blue Jeans" and press play on some new material here.
