LOS ANGELES—Amanda Thomas of Luv Aj linked up with 4th and Bleeker blogger and model Alex Spencer to create a jewelry line called "Septum." None of the pieces actually go through your nose.
NEW YORK—Among the costumes that are going to be big this year according to NYC Halloween store owners are Power Rangers, Hunger Games, Fifty Shades of Grey (renamed "Bound for Pleasure" due to licensing issues), and "That Asian guy with a tux. The one who dances."
