April 26: What Are We Wearing Today?

Heyo! It is so, so nice out today. Thank God it’s Friday, riiiight? We’re itching to get outside, so let’s make this quick. Come check out what we’re wearing today — and if you have any fun plans for the weekend, and I am sure you do, tell us all about it in the comments!

Makeup Bag: The Best Of International Beauty Products

My product stash has a serious case of wanderlust. Cleanser from England, toner from Australia, moisturizer from France — I may not be in any position to travel the world over, exactly, but my skin definitely is. The origins of these 8 products read like a guestbook at the United Nations, so you don’t even have to leave your bathroom to feel exponentially more worldly. Keep reading »

Kim Gordon Generously Shares Her “Traumatized Good Times Tunes” Rap Playlist

Sonic Youth on "GG"?
Huh? The band appeared on "Gossip Girl"? Read More »

In my experience, breakup music can go two ways: there’s the soft, sad, slow, wallowing type, and then there’s the upbeat and/or aggressive type that makes you feel like you’ve got the world by the balls, and fuck him, anyway. Personally, I usually begin with the former and progress to the latter over time, once I feel like I’ve gotten all of the tears and self-pity out of the way and I’m ready to move on to not giving a fuck. And you know what’s the best music for making you feel like you just don’t give a fuck? Yeah, it’s probably gonna be rap. But don’t just take it from me — impossibly rad rock star Kim Gordon, who split from her Sonic Youth bandmate Thurston Moore in late 2011 after 30 years together, knows that hip-hop, or what she calls “Traumatized Good Times Tunes,” are kind of the panacea for heartbreak and that gross, creeping “oh my god I feel so sorry for myself I could die” feeling. Gordon revealed her personal playlist and, no surprise here, it’s pretty legit, featuring tracks by Joey Bada$$, Boss, and Gang Starr, and the obligatory Iggy Azalea guilty pleasure. Check it out. We recommend. [Refinery29]

Style Stealer: Victoria Beckham’s Spring-Ready Miniskirt Look

Hold up. The Victoria Beckham, in an outfit that could actually be recreated by a mere mortal? For real! Sure, Posh’s look probably cost somewhere in the neighborhood of 50 million dollars, and this one will only set you back $288, but still. They’re almost the same! This neutral look, accented with a flash of bright orange, looks fabulous on VB — and it’ll look fabulous on you, too. (Sorry, perfect baby angel child accessory not included at this time.)

Makeup Bag: Bright Spring Color For Lips, Eyes, And Cheeks

Spring and summer makeup is all about color. On lips, on cheeks, on eyes, on nails — wherever you decide to put it, you’re going to want to make it pop. We can’t recommend wearing all of them at once, but there’s nothing like a slick of vibrant color somewhere on an almost-bare face to perfectly suit the season. These 5 lip colors, liners, and blushes are the ultimate for getting the sunny spring look we’re all after. Game on. Keep reading »

Don’t get me wrong, I am not about to complain about this choice photograph of Robert De Niro clutching Lil Bub at the Tribeca Film Festival Directors Brunch. However. As an animal lover, I do have my concerns that Bub’s saturation level has passed the point of Internet sensation and entered exploitation territory. Bub is but a very brief, very lovely shooting star in our mortal universe, not meant to stick around long, and I fear for her well-being when she is being paraded around at huge events with large crowds like so. But nobody else seems to be worried about this, so I should probably just shut my mouth. At least Mr. De Niro seems to be handling her with care.

April 23: What Are We Wearing Today?

Finally, we’re all back at The Frisky HQ! Did you miss us? There’s a lot of construction going on in the office right next door, so we worked from home all last week because of all the noise. It’s pretty dreary out, so we aren’t exactly wearing the sundresses and sandals we pictured ourselves in this time of year … oh well. It’s supposed to be 70 out tomorrow, so things are looking up! Let’s see what we’re wearing on this deceptively un-springlike day…

This late April has brought about some seriously weird weather here in NYC. It’s 45 and rainy today and set to be 72 and sunny tomorrow, so not only do we have no idea what to wear, but our bodies have no idea what to do with themselves. This, naturally, presents Beauty Problems galore. We can’t be bothered with complaining about our stuffy noses and tension headaches when there are more pressing issues like chapped lips and frizzy hair at hand! Julie has a newly-developed lip balm addiction, Winona is dealing with skin sensitivity and blotchiness (and layering on the foundation to no avail as a result which, come on, we all do), and I have an incredibly painful under-the-skin zit that as of right now is invisible to everyone but me. Are you having any weather or stress-induced beauty issues? Let’s commiserate. Please? [Photo of woman looking at face in mirror from Shutterstock]
