“Quirky Girl”: The Other Side Of The Manic Pixie Dream Girl


The Manic Pixie Dream girl — every woman kinda sorta wishes she could be her, every guy kinda sort wants to bang her. Right? If you’ve got a festering love/hate relationship with Zooey Deschanel’s character in “(500) Days Of Summer” — and other relentlessly quirky girls like her — then you’ll appreciate this Funny Or Die spoof featuring Teresa Palmer and the drool-worthy Aaron Paul. Because sometimes quirky is just crazy. [Funny Or Die] Keep reading »

The Only Pair Of Jeans You Need This Fall

Looking to expand your denim wardrobe without spending a ton of money? A pair of jeans that do triple duty, like Gap’s 1969 pintucked trouser jeans — part of their “LA Story” campaign — ought to do the trick. The high-waist and flared leg are totally on trend, the dark wash and trouser cut are office-appropriate, and, of course, denim can be styled to suit almost any occasion. Dress them up with heels and a cute top, go casual with boots and a sweater, and conduct serious biz by pairing them with a buttondown and blazer. One pair of jeans that go with everything? And did I mention they’re on sale? Yes please!

Wheel Of High-Heeled Fortune

Not having enough room for my shoes (or my clothes or my cosmetics or my anything) in my small studio is a major source of stress in my life, because in addition to being a shopaholic, I am also moderately OCD. Thankfully, Rakku Designs has come to my rescue. They invented the handy-dandy Shoe Wheel, which can store up to 30 pairs of shoes (including high heels!) in small, attractive, and user-friendly packaging. It’s a little pricey at almost 60 bones, especially when you consider that I will now have the closet space to buy even more kicks.
