The second the weather is warm enough to warrant wearing the occasional pair of flip-flops, we start daydreaming about the beach. That means fantasizing about what we’ll wear while frolicking in the frigid waves of the Atlantic. We’ve got our eyes on this hot little retro-ish number from J. Crew which has the lovely sounding name of “Plumeria.” We plan on donning this adorable suit with a straw fedora and big glamour girl shades — and a high SPF, of course. Summer, hurry your ass up!
She may be off “Dancing with the Stars,” but you can still catch Wendy Williams on TV. Her new show, “Love Triangle,” in which the mega opinionated host helps romantically confused contestants pick who to choose and who to lose, debuted on the Game Show Network this week. We can’t get enough of Wendy’s tell it like it is advice, which is why we’re super psyched she’s sharing her opinions on dating with Frisky readers in our new webseries, “Love It Or Leave It.” In this first episode, Wendy has some tips for women who might be having a hard time scrounging up a date. It’s a good thing I have a significant other, because Wendy clearly would not endorse my every-other-day shower habit as a way of wooing a man. Oops. Be sure to watch “Love Triangle” weeknights at 7:00 p.m. EST /6:00 p.m. CST on the Game Show Network. Keep reading »
I didn’t think I could love Jenna Lyons, Creative Director for J. Crew, any more, but my respect for her has grown tenfold beyond just loving her work with the line. On the brand’s website, there’s a feature called “Saturday with Jenna,” featuring photographs of Lyons hanging out with her son Beckett (above). In one photo, she’s seen holding her son’s tiny feet, freshly pedicured with a hot pink Essie polish. The accompanying quote reads:
“Lucky for me, I ended up with a boy whose favorite color is pink. Toenail painting is way more fun in neon.”
“It’s really awesome for me that you’re not obsessed with showering every day,” my new boyfriend remarked recently. I looked at him somewhat surprised. “Well, then I don’t have to either,” he explained.
See, I’m a “shower every other day” kind of girl, with the occasional whore’s bath thrown in when necessary. It’s not something I’ve typically advertised to the men I’ve dated over the last few years and I doubt they’ve noticed since I’ve taken care to groom before dates and whatnot. But with M. living out of town and coming to visit for days at a time, our mutual grooming habits have been obvious and, it seems, in sync. Keep reading »
Let me start this post off by saying that I think Reese Witherspoon is gorgeous, I am really into the retro-inspired look of this Vogue shoot and am psyched to see her movie — which inspired the look — “Water For Elephants.” It looks romantic and I am a cheeseball. However, I am very thrown off by her lips in this cover image. The way they’re strangely upturned at the corners, it’s like she’s trying to hold back a smile. Like she has a secret. A naughty, shameful secret. Like maybe she just farted in her very expensive couture gown and she’s hoping Anna Wintour doesn’t smell it and open a can of ice cold whip ass on her. Yep, that’s gotta be it. It’s all over her face. [Vogue's Tumblr] Keep reading »
Ever wonder what would happen if Britney Spears took Adele to Da Club for a dance off? I have a theory. Britney would start dancing, natch, and Adele, in her proper English accent, would be, like, “Bitch, I ain’t no dancer, I’m a singer. I’m turning this into a sing off!” And then while Britney gyrated and sweated to the hot beats, Adele would sing her ass off, and the whole thing would look and sound something like this mash-up of Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” and Britney’s “Till The World Ends.” I thought it was just in my fantasies, but apparently not. Thank you, Jarod Ripley, for making my pop music dreams come true. Keep reading »
