Necessary Clothing Is Sooo Necessary

Necessary Clothing Is Sooo Necessary

   We Magpies are always on the lookout for clothing stores where we can stock up on the hottest trends – without spending a fortune. We used to love combing the racks for finds at Forever 21 – but recently, that store has gone majorly downhill. Which is why we were so excited to discover […]

…But Lay Off My Blue Suede Shoes

…But Lay Off My Blue Suede Shoes

As we’ve mentioned before, suede shoes are really “in” this fall, and many designers have included blue suede shoes in their fall lines. Navy blue, cerulean blue, and a whole array of different shades are going to be seen on New York feet this fall, and all you need to do to look stylish is to get your hands (or […]

Attennn-tion! The New Uniform – Silk Shirts for Fall

Attennn-tion! The New Uniform – Silk Shirts for Fall

  Last season, it was our Elizabeth and James (to die for!) black blazer; the year before, the slouchy boyfriend cardigan.  There are certain fashion trends that we Magpies embrace which then become our fashion uniform for the season.  We can’t help it; when we find something we love – we wear it again and […]

The Best Fiber Mascara – Made In Japan!

The Best Fiber Mascara – Made In Japan!

Our favorite cameras, hair straighteners, take-out food, and cars (well, we haven’t had any problems with our brakes)… and now this! It would take an  innovative, high-tech Japanese beauty company to figure out a way to get all those tiny fibers in mascara to go on lashes in the right direction. We’ve tried many mascaras that claim to have fibers to lengthen […]

We’re Forever Fawning over Aldo’s Fawson Pumps

We’re Forever Fawning over Aldo’s Fawson Pumps

We first professed our love for Aldo here, when we purchased a pair of  faboosh nude patent leather pumps that we ended up wearing the entire summer. But now – we Magpies have fallen in love all over again. And it’s not just our new love!  Aldo’s Fawson pumps have been seen on everyone from reality star Lauren Conrad… […]

Eat, Pray, Love The Merchandise!

Eat, Pray, Love The Merchandise!

Eat, Pray, Love, the movie taken from Elizabeth Gilbert’s best selling memoir of self-discovery following the breakup of her marriage, has not even opened yet (it’s premiering Friday, August 13,2010 – can’t wait!) and already the movie-inspired merchandise is all over the place!  Usually the crew at Harriet Magpie is not impressed with commercial type merchandise, but the items […]

Dior’s Extase Mascara – Don’t Leave Home Without It!

The crew at Harriet Magpie is forever looking for that magic mascara that will lengthen and volumize our lashes without the clumping and hassle. We’ve tried every mascara on the market – and we seem to always go back to Dior as the gold standard for mascaras. So it’s not surprising that we were willing to shell […]

New Face Lotion For Sun Days – Try It You’ll Like It!

New Face Lotion For Sun Days – Try It You’ll Like It!

Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you know by now how damaging the sun can be for your skin. We are very aware of it too, but whether we’re very consistent about applying sunscreen every day, well, that’s another story. Even the sunblocks that claim they’re light and won’t clog our pores, are still too heavy […]

Oh Go Get O-Bronze!

Oh Go Get O-Bronze!

Summer is here, and so is the incredible selection of sunscreens to protect you from those dangerous suntans. But just because too much sun is bad for your skin, too little color still makes you look washed out when wearing all the pretty, light-colored tees. So what’s a politically and dermatologically correct girl do when she wants to look […]

Want Longer-Looking Legs? Go Nude!

Want Longer-Looking Legs? Go Nude!

It’s such a simple concept, really; extend the length of your legs by camouflaging it! Match the color of your pumps (the higher, the better!) to your skin tone, and instantly create a longer, leaner, sexier look! No more starving yourself on plain lettuce, and spending countless of  hours at the gym doing leg lifts. This trick gives you that slim, […]

It’s Easy Going Green-with Mac Makeup!

If you told us Magpies that our new fave makeup color this summer would be green, we would have died laughing! But now, we must confess, green seems to be our new go-to color when we want a little sparkle and oomph in our look without looking like we’ve joined a circus! Since green is a neutralizing color to […]

Here’s the Low-Down On High-Tops

Here’s the Low-Down On High-Tops

High-tops are making a big comeback this summer! Everyone from Rihanna to Agyness Deyn has been spotted in the shoes, and the trend is hot for the hot weather ahead! Personally, we still wear the pair of  black converse high tops from four years ago – which is a definite fashion faux-pas! Because the summer trend for […]
