What A Subtle Tattoo

My mom was pissed when she saw the tiny tat on the bottom of my foot. Little did she know that I could have gotten much more more aggressive with my inking. [Fashion Copious]…

It’s Time For A Hella Bright Nixon Watch

There’s something to be said for a delicate, lady-like watch. But ladies don’t want their accessories to be “lovely” all the time; sometimes we want them to be awesome. And when that mood hits, a bright-as-hell Nixon watch does the job. The Time Teller P Watch looks like a little piece of pop art and…

Be A Virtual Clothes Whore With The Retail Therapy Game

Know how you kind of want to shop all the time, but there isn’t enough money in the world to support that habit? Well, we kind of thought it might be just us with those issues until we heard about Retail Therapy, an online game centered around virtual consumerism. Retail Therapy launched quietly a…

Stomp Mel Gibson To Get In Shape

We’re not fans of violence, per se, but this “Stomp Mel Gibson” special is kind of awesome. [Advertising Is Good For You]…

Must Buy: Official Betty White Apparel

We’ve always had a thing for “Golden Girl” Betty White and her geriatric cheekiness. But, until now, we never had an appropriate way to express our love. Yeah, we could buy Betty’s sexy calendar, but that would just be tacked on our walls, and sorry, that just isn’t a public enough homage to Ms. White.

Does Nina Garcia’s New Target Affiliation Make You Respect Her More Or Less?

Nina Garcia of Project Runway, Elle, and Marie Claire fame has signed on to be Target’s “fashion expert.” The role will mean more videos for Target’s website and StyleBoutique blog, repping new developments for Target brands like Mossimo, and offering tips and tricks for making the most of the store’s budget clothes. This is a…

Vena Cava Designs For Bloomingdale’s Aqua Brand

Vena Cava is bringing their artsy cool aesthetic to Bloomingdale’s Aqua brand this fall. Given Aqua’s affordable price point, the Vena Cava collaboration is expected to be even less expensive than the brand’s already-existent diffusion line, Viva Vena. We hope — and expect — that it will be just as cute, though! [The Cut]…

Martin Scorsese Is Directing Chanel’s New Commercial

Apparently Karl Lagerfeld’s artsy, bizarre little romps in the land of cinema and short videos just won’t cut it when it comes to marketing Chanel’s new Bleu de Chanel men’s fragrance. The company has enlisted the help of Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese for that task. The commercial — we feel like we’re cheapening it by…

Model Tanning FAIL

At first, we kind of thought that these three lovelies were dead. Then we looked more closely at the clothes and realized that there was nary a sign of struggle or dragging in sight. All we can really take from this bizarre Marc Jacobs fall ’10 ad campaign is that they don’t realize that tanning…

What Should Betsey Johnson’s Plaza Hotel Eloise Suite Look Like?

It was announced last September that fashion designer Betsey Johnson would be designing an Eloise-themed suite for The Plaza Hotel in New York City. Those of you who were obsessed with Eloise to the extent that we were as kids may or may not have peed your pants in excitement at the news. Now, finally,…

Quotable: Calvin Klein’s Francisco Costa Says Waifs Are So Over

“Calvin Klein originally started the whole waif moment and not much has been done since then … Lara was our exclusive four years ago. We’ve never had someone who really represented our houses and all our licensees in the same way. She is very current, very beautiful and very womanly. It’s time for that persona…

Check Out Tiffany & Company’s Boring $4,800 Handbag

Sorry to be a downer, but we’re totally underwhelmed by Tiffany & Company’s soon-to-be-released handbags. The iconic jewelry maker is stepping into the handbag market this September with the help of the design duo formerly behind the recently-shuttered bag line Lambertson Truex. The designers, who formerly made incredibly ladylike bags, make total sense for the…

Victoria’s Secret Bedbugs Aren’t Very Sexy

Hot on the heels of the recent Hollister bedbug infestation and cleansing, Victoria’s Secret on New York’s Lexington Avenue had a fun little infestation of its own. Apparently, bugs were found and the store was closed down for sniffing by bed bug-detecting dogs, a quick, intense chemical spray and, finally, another dog sniffing. The company…

How To Salvage Your Nasty Summer Feet

We’ve done a post about maintaining pretty feet. This is not that post. This, rather, is a guide to going apes**t on your feet once you’ve let them get to what seems like a point of no return. Having recently pumiced my own mangled extremities half to death and come out alive, I’m not unlike…

Lane Bryant Wasn’t Always So Full-Figure-Friendly

Lane Bryant may still be a plus sized Mecca, but they’ve certainly changed their approach to advertising. Now, curvy ladies parade in their undies instead of hiding under massive coats and calling other “chubbies” to join the ranks. We think that’s a win. [Copyranter]…

Worth The Splurge: Dannijo Jewelry

Designed by sisters Danielle and Jodie Snyder, Dannijo jewelry is a rather cool mix of sleek and boho. Necklaces made of crystal stop short of being hippie-appropriate when draped in silver chains and studs, causing us to drool just a little bit. Whether it’s a cocktail ring you want or a necklace that’ll make everyone…

Worth The Splurge: Alexander Wang Fall ’10 Shoes

A lot of our internet time here at The Frisky is dedicated to watching shoe porn. Call us pervs, but there’s nothing like a sleek pair of heels on a Monday morning to make the work week feel a little more bearable. At the top of our radar right now are Alexander Wang’s fall ’10…

Check Out The New eBay Fashion App

I’m a staunch believer in buying clothes and shoes on eBay. Though not a lover of used things, I am a huge fan of deals, and the enormous selection of new goods still tagged and in their boxes makes it my go to website when I’ve got something very specific in mind and don’t want…
