November 14: What Are We Wearing Today?

You know what we could use a little reader feedback on? Poses. I know looking at our outfits every day is terribly interesting on its own, but we’d like to kick it up a notch by making our poses more entertaining. Not all of us are like Ami, for whom posing wacky comes naturally. So, if you could play Tyra for a day and direct our daily outfit photo shoot, how would you like us to pose? (Naked and/or in a gigantic Greek salad are not viable options, FYI.)

Little Girl Gives Her Doberman A Pawdicure

Who says a bad ass dog like a doberman can’t also get his nails did? Sometimes pups need a little pampering! (Or at least that’s what Lucca tells me every time she demands a massage.) And I concur with Jessica at The Gloss who sees a deeper message in this photo currently making the rounds on the internet. “This is a big f*k you to people who like to insist that certain breeds of dogs are naturally inclined to be vicious,” she writes. “Dobermans were the pit bulls of the 1990s, and yet here’s one exhibiting more patience with a child than a lot of adult humans would have.” So true. The smudges on my most recent mani are evidence of that. [The Gloss]

I have never worn Spanx, but Melissa McCarthy has officially made me terrified of ever doing so. Wardrobe malfunctions are already all too prevent in my life — from snapped heels to sudden holes in my jeans’ crotch to full-on thong reveals thanks to hearty gusts of wind — so Spanx just sound like a disaster waiting to happen. They do, however, make for a hilarious segment on “Ellen.” Watch above!

  • The Devil appeared on “Saturday Night Live”‘s “Weekend Update” and quit his job upon learning the details of the Penn State scandal. Because people who rape children (and people who protect child rapists!) are the kind of evil even the Devil wants nothing to do with. [Hulu]
  • Did you know that Jerry Sandusky, the former assistant football coach who is accused of child sexual assault on eight minors, was released on a mere $100,000 unsecured bail? Which he doesn’t have to pay unless he fails to show up for a court hearing? And that, despite the prosecutor’s request, he doesn’t have to wear a leg monitor? Hmm, wonder if this gentle treatment has anything to do with the fact that the judge, Leslie Dutchcot, is a volunteer with The Second Mile? You know, the children’s charity that Sandusky set up and used as a way of meeting his victims. [Deadspin]
  • A friend of mine — also the husband of one of my dearest friends and the father of my favorite honorary “niece” – owns a very popular swimming school for children in New York City. He has written a compelling blog post about what responsibility coaches hold both on and off the field (and in and out of the pool). [Cap And Goggles] Keep reading »
