2011 Glasses Kind Of Defeat The Point

Those New Year‘s sunglasses had a good run from 2000-2010. But we gotta say: Once you get to 2011, isn’t the point kind of defeated? The look just isn’t quite working for this year. Try again in 2020? [Party City] Keep reading »

The Rundown On Reese’s Engagement Ring

We are officially jealous of Reese Witherspoon. We’re getting information on the ring Jim Toth offered her and damn, is it awesome. The timeless design by William Goldberg features a square-cut 4-karat diamond and pave diamond band. While the diamond may look standard, it’s anything but. Apparently the cut was inspired by a diamond once owned by the Indian Buddhist warrior and emperor Ashoka Maruya. According to Glam Chic: “The stone has 62 displayed facets and rounded corners, which creates more sparkle and fire than most traditional cuts.” No word on how much it’s worth … but you can bet that it cost more than a pretty penny.

Lesson Learned: Probably Not A Good Idea To Call 911 After A Bad Mani

OK, we get the disappointment and annoyance when you get a crappy manicure. Most of the time, however, we just shut up, begrudgingly hand over the 15 bucks and live with it. That’s not the case with one Florida woman who decided to call 911 after something (it’s not quite clear what) went wrong during her manicure. She ended up calling 911 several times—once because she wasn’t satisfied with the officer who arrived on the scene and a couple other times because she claimed her long nails kept hitting the “redial” button on her phone. The end result? Jail. Yup. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Would You Wear: The Faux Moto Jacket Tee?

We can’t stop staring at this trompe l’oeil shirt with a motorcycle jacket print on it. It’s kind of confusing … and we’re not sure that’s a good thing. But, better, we suppose, than a faux tuxedo t-shirt, right? Do you think this design is edgy or too far off the edge? [Urban Outfitters] Keep reading »

Handbag Or Weapon?

This piece by Dafne Balatsos looks more like a Super Mario Brothers weapon or medieval torture device than a handbag. For real—you could do some serious damage with this guy. And we’d bet TSA wouldn’t let you near a plane with it. [Trend Hunter] Keep reading »

Shopping Guide: Slip Into Slipper Socks

Here at The Frisky, we’re all about comfort. So it should be no surprise that our latest obsession embodies that to an almost comical degree: slipper socks. It’s a sock and slipper in one! Oh the genius.

Rumor Mill: Rihanna Could Be Designing A Topshop Line—Good Or Bad Thing?

Topshop‘s celebrity mascot Kate Moss is out. Does that mean Rihanna is next in line? Some are speculating that the pop star may be in talks to design a line for the British fashion chain. We’ll admit, the evidence isn’t all too convincing—that she had lunch with Sir Philip Green in Barbados and “could” have been talking about a collaboration. (For those who don’t know, Mr. Green is a business tycoon and Topshop’s owner.)

But it’s an interesting thought. Rihanna often hovers between worst dressed and best dressed … we wonder what her collection would look like. Do you think this would be hot or not? [Daily Mail]

A Perm … For Your Eyelashes?

The last time we saw a perm and liked it was in 7th grade when Jennifer Guglio’s mom let her get one and she accessorized it with colorful baby barrettes and Hello Kitty hair ties. That. Was. So. Cool. Since then? Not so much. Until Marie Claire brought up perms recently. They’re back, apparently. But not for your hair—for your eyelashes?! One MC beauty writer talks about getting the treatment at a NYC salon. The writer was extremely satisfied with her $80+ treatment, saying that her curly lashes made her face look “more feminine” and that she didn’t need to wear mascara because they were so dramatic … Keep reading »
