Today’s Lady News: Komen For The Cure Insider Tells All About Planned Parenthood Tomfoolery

  • Susan G. Komen for the Cure’s VP Karen Handel, a former politician who ran on an anti-abortion platform and was endorsed by Sarah Palin, allegedly drove Komen’s decision last week to halt grants to Planned Parenthood, which were used to pay for breast exams for low-income women.

Greedy Jerks Like These Are The Reason You Couldn’t Buy Jason Wu For Target This Weekend

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, I used to be quite the vintage clothing huntress. Finding a kickass sale with a few good finds in my size gave me an unbelievable cheap thrill.  Every weekend, I’d wake up early and drive to whatever estate sale promised a cache of clothing. One day, I entered a room at an estate sale and saw a woman who was picking up items of clothing indiscriminately and shoving them into bags. Keep reading »
