I'd never thought I'd say this, but I think I'm jealous of Snooki. The Jersey Shore girl tweeted a pic of her closet last night with the caption "My closet=my sanctuary," so of course I HAD to click on it. In the picture, Snooki is posing in a gold, glittery fedora showing off some serious shoulder, and if you look behind her, BAM! The mega-monster closet space. Cue everyone living in New York City simultaneously crying. I mean, I grew up in the SUBURBS OF CHICAGO, and I never had a closet space nearly this huge. Her hardwood floor walk-in closet features entire shelves dedicated to all of her shoes, bags, and all other animal print accessories. Further down we see that she has a spacious hanging rack for her clothes, and, man, HOW DO I GET ONE OF THESE THINGS? Like, this might be as big as my entire apartment, but I don't even care.
JWOWW with her pups in Jersey City on March 23.

Yep, you read that headline right. Jersey Shore girl JWOWW had an interesting (and furry!) featured guest on her latest blog post—one of her pups. Noel (her dog) took to the internet to discuss his latest adventure in hair dye—an all over lavender purple wash with a bright blue color to accent his paws. His sister Bella, a pretty Pomeranian, sported a girly hot pink hue on her feet and tail with a matching chest collar. He said (erm, barked?), "What started out as your average stroll, though, quickly turned into an impromptu fashion show. People began to notice how cool and sassy we looked and soon we became the talk of the town! Bella and I always strive to stay fresh to death and I think we really outdid ourselves with our latest look." I'll say! JWOWW even sported a touch of bright hair dye in her own strands to match her punky pups, and we're kiiinnnd of obsessed. We also love that she coordinated their collars with their freshly-dyed fur for all-out ferocious fash sesh. But tell us, would you ever dye your pups' 'do?

Ever since Snooki announced that she has a baby on the way (!!!), she's been dropping hints that she wants her new addition to be as fash-forward as possible. Just last night she tweeted that she wanted "give birth in heels" followed by a pic this morning of leopard and red patent leather platforms with the caption "My labor shoes! Bahahaha." (Looks like she wants to start her life as a new mom on the right foot. *ba-dum ching*) To put it simply: She ain't messing around when it comes to shoes, which is why she decided to expand her Happy Feet slippers collection into the world of children's and infant footwear, according to WWD. Yep, this means her fuzzy, sneaker-inspired slippers will be donned by little dudes everywhere—especially on her own. Happy Feet owner Pat Yates said Snooki "is extremely involved in the development. She’s extremely particular. She didn’t just sign and walk away. She’s involved in every facet, from the website design to the slippers.” The collection will be available at SnookiSlippers.com for $15 later this spring.

In a moment of unlikely circles converging, venerated New York lifestyle magazine Paper has chosen Jersey Shore's Vinny Guadagnino for its 15th Annual Beautiful People issue. The April installment features Cobra Starship's Gabe Saporta on the cover (which makes sense since dude is nothing if not dishy with a knack for dressing sharply) and contains the gorgeous likes of Rita Ora, actress Zosia Mamet (from the upcoming HBO show Girls), and our Lady of The Not-So-Basic Bishes, Kreayshawn.
OK, I know you're all thinking, "Well OBVI you love that this JS kid is in this magazine you wildly biased, slippery MTV-employed woman," and while I get that, here's where my brain went in enjoying this particular move.
That's it! Season 5 of our beloved fist-pumping, boardwalk dominating Jersey Shore is officially over, and what a season it was. From hair-raising drama with Deena to hard-hitting lessons with Pauly D, this fifth season at Seaside Heights has been equal parts entertaining and educational. Nowhere was this more true than in the style department, and this last episode took the cast out in one gigantic Snookilicious leopard print bang. Thus, we're spotlighting the sign-off ep's top 5 style moments. Here we go!
5. VINNY'S TOO-TIGHT TEE
Vinny wears a too-tight tee on the season finale of "Jersey Shore."
Getting ready for one of the roommates' last nights out, Vinny polls the house for some style advice. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on how you look at it) for Vin, the Shore House loves fierce like family and doesn't intend to let their dude go out looking like a fool. Bestie Pauly D says, "Bro, that t-shirt's screaming, 'I. Don't. Fit. You.'" While Ronnie stands on the steps chuckling, Deena chimes in, "Where'd you get that? BabyGap?" Ouch. But think about how difficult spitting game at the club would have been if they let him out like that.

We couldn't help but notice that every time we spotted JWOWW out and about this past month, she's been giving us the cold shoulder! We don't mean like that—we just meant that the Jersey Shore girl seriously loves her cutout shoulder pieces, and, honestly, so do we. We can't get enough of this '80s-throwback trend, and Sammi was the first JS girl to sport this look in January of last year. The little peek of shoulder in a blouse, tee, or dress is a subtle way to flash some skin this spring, and, um, if you have a bod like JWOWW's, it's like a teeny weeny little present for our eyeballs. (Thank youuuu!)
Either we've been distracted by Snooki's sparkly engagement ring or her big mommy-to-be news because SOMEHOW we missed that our Jersey Shore girl launched a handbag line. Like, what? Where have we been? Excuse us if we're late to the party, but we need to discuss. Her 12-piece collection includes everything from going-out clutches to carry-all hobo bags to patent leather totes, and the most expensive piece won't cost you more than 50 buckaroos. A sampling of her collection includes a "Wild Love" leopard print (duh) glossy handbag with a giant bow on the front, a buckled zebra clutch with a removable chain strap, a studded Boston bag that comes in both tan and black, and a skull ring fold-over clutch with an optional leather strap. But, um, is it just us or does that black clutch look a tad familiar? Haven't we seen this before?
Sammi in Miami on March 3.

After watching six seasons of Jersey Shore, we know how many routines of GTL go into keeping Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola's golden glow and tight tummy in their perennially perfect state. But this latest swimwear sighting is prettttty epic. Sammi rocked a string bikini that's so mega on-trend it gives Snooki's metallic swimsuit and JWOWW's Filthy Couture bikinis a run for their money. From the color to the bold print, we could totally see ourselves getting our tan on in this string bikini. It comes in a neon green hue, AND it boasts a sexy zebra print that we all know is a Jersey favorite. The Joe Boxer Women's Tigress neon and zebra print top and bottom retail for only $19 a piece (!!!) at Kmart.com. In other words, it will cost you a mere $38 to channel Sammi's fierce-ness at the pool this summer. Be sure to rock it with killer abs (well, we can dream), a golden tan and heavy liner on your lids because, duh, that's what Sammi would want, guys.

The Jersey Shore girls set up their tent.
On this week's episode of Jersey Shore, the roommates all go CAMPING! Well, all but Vinny and Pauly who opts out, claiming to be against the whole "no mirror, no bathroom, can't do my blowout" aspect of camping. Perhaps the rest of the roommates were just less aware of how stripped an experience camping can be, but they braved the wilderness and their extraction from the world of styling irons and GTL nonetheless. So how exactly do the Seaside Heights mainstays ready themselves for a *achem* low maintenance night under the stars?
A baby outfit if Snooki has a girl!
Guys, Snooki is expecting! The big news dropped today, and the mommy-to-be also revealed that she's engaged to boyfriend Jionni LaValle. (Ah ha! That WAS an engagement ring we spotted the other day.) Call us crazy, but we're kiiiind of excited to see how Snooki styles her little meatball. It's still up in the air whether it's a boy or girl, but don't worry—we're covering all our bases. We've put together some Snooki-fied baby outfits for her newborn that we think she'll totally dig. First up, a baby girl ensemble! Our Jersey Shore lady is ALL about accessories and animal print, so we went with a giant pink zebra bow paired with a sparkly fuchsia zebra swimsuit (so beach ready, amirite?), pink cheetah print sunglasses, a black tutu, and animal print flip-flops. We think this girly punk rocker meets beach babe ensemble has every part of Snooki's style rolled up into one tiny little package. Awww!
