Dear Banana Sweater Boyfriend,
Look, I already know we’re going to get along. After all, we both like garish Cosby sweaters, and bananas. What more do you need to form the basis to a solid relationship?
Earlier this week, Kate, Ami and I were waiting for our orders in front of our favorite falafel truck when we spotted a girl in the above green halter top dress. The lovely mossy green color was striking, especially paired with a brown leather belt and boots. The dress, $158 from Anthropologie, felt appropriately fall-like but still retained a sexy edge. And the color! The color was absolutely stunning. We liked it so much that I thought I’d search for other great pieces of mossy green goodness. Check out what I found!
It’s been apocalyptically raining and rather miserable in New York this week. So, I think we can all agree that what’s needed right now is an adorable orange kitten interlude. This particular kitten is named Garfield, and he’s hiding in plain sight from a large dog that’s chasing him around the yard. Feel free to refer to Garfield as much as is needed this weekend.

“Have fun. Don’t take anything too seriously. Try a bit of irony now and again. Don’t wear anything too tight. Borrow things from your brother, boyfriend or father’s wardrobe. And wear stupid shoes!”
“I’ll eat when I’m dead.”
–Brit designer addict and heiress Daphne Guinness on how she stays thin enough to fit into her couture collection. The 43-year-old subsists on Red Bull and Ensure nutrition shakes and allegedly refused a plate of pasta during a photo shoot because “If I eat, I can’t work.” Her collection of designer items, which includes a vast array of Alexander McQueen garments, is currently on display at the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.

And in the “Are You Out of Your Damn Mind?” category: A woman in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is trying to sell a pair of Missoni for Target rainboots on eBay for $31,000. Yes, you read that correctly. She’s hoping she can sell the boots — which retail for $34.99 — for $31K on eBay, in order to pay for her daughter’s college education. As Tammy Lyn explained to CNN Money, “We have lived frugally and have some savings, but like most Americans, it’s just not enough to cover college, retirement, and life at this point.” And while she says she’s received some negative comments for the stunt, she has faith that someone, somewhere will see her posting and pull through. Not only that, she’s set aside a few other Missoni for Target items with the goal of using them to pay for her daughter’s second, third and fourth years of school. It sounds like she has a lot of faith in the Missoni for Target line. And perhaps a skewed understanding of free market economics. [CNN Money] Keep reading »
Before I was a Frisky lady, I lived in Philadelphia and had a regular DJ night. Over the years, I amassed tons and tons of vinyl records, and lugged them around in milk crates and stolen postal crates (shhhh, don’t tell anyone). Now that I’m no longer DJ-ing (I cannot stay up til 4 a.m., you guys!) I need some place classy to put all my hundreds of records. And that’s where the “Mad Men”-inspired Draper Media Console comes in. It’s sleek, modern, and stores a dazzling array of records. Certainly much more grown up — and legal — than my old postal crate.
