One of the myriad beauties of summer is the ability to simplify, product-wise. Chic relies on a bold lip, a touch of powder, and of course, epic mascara. When it's either go big or go home, consider Maybelline’s Falsies by Volum’ Express mascara, which makes lashes so long and fluttery that they look almost faux. Plus! At under $10 a pop, you can replace your tube when the stuff gets the slightest bit dry.

Vacations abound in these balmy months! And if you want to capture all the fun adventures, Leica has you covered with its new compact V-Lux 20. Not only does it take high quality pics, but it also has GPS tagging, so you can record your exact location and time for easier organization post-trip. Plus, there's also a HD movie recorder, so you secure both still shots and live action. Charity bonus: Matthew Modine just celebrated the new Leica boutique opening in Willoughby's earlier this week, and the brand's CEO Joseph Douek agreed to donate a portion of proceeds from all Leica products purchased at the store next week to Modine's Bicycle for a Day environmental non-profit organization. Chic and charitable, what more do you need? THE DETAILS: $699, Willoughby's

Amanda Seyfried, we were fans when you were a Mean Girl, but now we just worship. Pourquoi? Because you sported a cozy SPiN New York t-shirt yesterday in West Hollywood. Given that the club is located in the basement of our office building, Chic adores nothing more than a few sliders and a half-dozen rounds of table tennis. What better way to waste away a summer Friday? Visit Spinyc.com to reserve your table...

Daily Doubles: Isabeli or Idina?

Chic is down in Sao Paulo this week, and so we’ve got super Isabeli Fontana on the brain. We discovered she’s been dipping into fashion design when we were treated to her runway show the other afternoon. While sitting through her mini press conference post-show, we confess that we couldn’t follow much of her musings, as everything was in Portuguese! However, while gazing at Fontana chatting away, we realized her uncanny resemblance to Tony Award winner Idina Menzel. Striking, non?

Chic will be the first to admit that sometimes we just want to unwind by gazing at a lot of pretty dresses. No shame in that! Luckily for us, bridal company Priscilla of Boston is teaming up with Thread Social to launch a collection of frothy frocks that will debut in late June at select Priscilla of Boston locations in Philadelphia, PA, Scottsdale, AZ and San Jose, CA. Whether you’ve got your eye on something short and sweet or floor-grazing and romantic, the collection of nine silhouettes has you covered. Plus, the prices range from an ultra-reasonable $250-$450. Who can argue with that? Pas nous!
