Style Stealer: Chloe Sevigny’s Leopard Look

I know what you’re thinking: Why would I ever want to steal this outfit? But! All of the elements of the outfit are great, even if you’d never be caught dead pairing a bowtie with a leopard print dress. And hey, we like a challenge. We think, for instance, that the bowtie would work better as a belt. After the jump, we give you our interpretation of Chloe Sevigny’s leopard love. And if you see an outfit you’d like to steal, {encode=”julie@thefrisky.com” title=”send us a pic”} and we’ll do our best! Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Hoofin’ It Edition

Most little girls go through a pony phase at some point. They’re majestic and enchanting creatures, and blah blah blah childhood princess fantasies. But there is a very wide berth between loving horses and wanting to be one. These hoof heels are made of carbon fiber and feature around 5,000 individual horse hairs, for the horse hair purists among us. Thankfully these hooves do have a point — proceeds from the sale of the heels, which cost around $2,500 a pair, will go to charity. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

Style 911: “I’ve Lost Weight And Now Nothing Fits!”

style911 030811 m jpg

In the last couple of months, I’ve lost about 15 pounds (on purpose). I’ve lost enough that my clothes are big on me, but not so big to justify buying a whole new wardrobe. Any suggestions for how I can make my wardrobe more skinny-friendly without spending too much? I’m finding that most of my jeans are baggy and my shirts look big and blousey, not showing off my figure the way I want to. I’ve always loved my legs, but now I have a new, flatter stomach, too. Are there some new pieces I should buy? Any other tricks?– Andrea

First off, it’s a smart decision to work with what you’ve already got! People often feel the need to run out and buy a whole new collection of clothes when they lose weight, but there are simple things you can do with your clothes to save yourself money and closet space. One suggestion — take some of your most expensive and most-beloved pieces and get them tailored. There’s no reason to get rid of those $150 jeans — a good tailor can get them taken in at the waist for way less than what it would cost to buy a new pair. You can also keep some of your favorite items by employing some slimming accessories — like wide, cinching belts and fitted blazers or cropped jackets. We also recommend that you buy at least a couple of pieces you love that highlight your favorite parts of your new body. If you like your smaller waist, for instance, purchase a figure-flattering party dress. After the jump, some of our favorite new-body options.

Al Qaeda Launches A Jihad Cosmo-Esque Magazine

Muslim Women Discriminated Against
Today's Lady News
A bus driver refused to drive women wearing Muslim veils. Read More »

What do the fashionable jihadists of the world read? Why, Al Qaeda’s “Cosmo-style” (that’s Fashionista’s words, not ours) ladymag Al-Shamikha, which means “majestic woman.” The glossy 30-page magazine boasts interviews with martyrs’ wives, beauty advice on how to keep skin clear (not surprisingly, that boils down to “staying inside with your face covered”), and helpful hints for single ladies trying to score a “mujahideen,” or Muslim fighter.

Ask The Mega Man Panel: The Capelet Blouse

We love the idea of a capelet, but does it work when it’s part of a shirt? Maybe, maybe not. We asked the man panel to weigh in on this Pins and Needles Melody Capelet Blouse and got a, uh, mixed reaction. And if you’ve got an item you’re dying for the man panel’s opinion on, {encode=”julie@thefrisky.com” title=”email us a link”}! Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Annoying Facebook T-Shirts

“I Facebooked your mom.” “Poke me.” “I don’t read books, I read Facebook status updates.” It’s bad enough that we collectively spend so much time “liking” and “poking” and status-updating on things; there’s really no reason to wear your Facebook addiction on your sleeve. [BitRebels] Keep reading »

What’s Your Seasonal Wardrobe Change Routine?

As it begins to slowly inch from winter to spring, we’ve begun to reexamine our wardrobes, pulling out some of the light coats and spring dresses that have been shoved in the back for so long. The savviest fashionistas among us have a dedicated plan for switching from winter to spring. One thing I like to do — I do an end-of-season boot/shoe examination. Any shoes with busted soles or worn-down heels get taken to the cobbler ASAP. That’s because there’s nothing worse than waiting until the first cold day of fall to realize all of your boots have busted heels.

So tell us: how do you make the transition? What are your seasonal switch tips? Keep reading »
