Whether you're a hardcore knitter or a hardcore vodka drinker, this pair of shot glasses -- one clear, one blue -- would be a great addition to your lifestyle. And if you're a fan of drinking while knitting, well, more power to you. Just be careful with those needles. [$24, Bread & Badger]…

Ask The Man Panel: Topshop’s Fringed Skirt

This Topshop tasseled maxi skirt takes the fringe trend to, well, the max. With its tie-dye top section, I wouldn't be surprised to find it in our Coachella style roundup, but that's about the only situation I can imagine wearing it. We asked the Man Panel what they thought of thi…

Do Not Want: Grandma’s Attic Swimsuit

From the horrific wood paneling to the kitschy plastic heart belt buckle, this swimsuit is a dead ringer for my grandma's attic. The major difference? My grandma used to pay me $2 to help organize her attic, but this swimsuit will run you $120. I think I'll pass. [via ModCloth] P.S.

Unlikely Style Icon: Ms. Frizzle From “The Magic Schoolbus”

Growing up, The Magic Schoolbus was one of my favorite series of books and TV shows. While my school's budget was slashed to the point where our class field trips consisted of walking outside and looking for bugs in parking lot mud puddles, Ms. Frizzle was using her magic schoolbus to launch her class into…

Awesome Affordable Etsy Find: Subtle Studs

As much as I usually favor statement-making jewelry -- disco ball-sized necklaces, sparkly chandelier earrings, etc. -- sometimes subtle pieces can pack quite a punch. These blue pearl studs would look so chic peeking out from casual summer hair. And lucky for us, these tiny earrings have a tiny price tag to match. [$10,…

Fashion Flashback: Suffragette Style

Check out this dance troupe striking a pose at a women's suffrage ball sometime around 1910. With all the recent attacks on women's rights, this photo makes me want to round up my most politically active girlfriends, sew ourselves some matching outfits, and choreograph a subversive dance dedicated to John Boehner. [via the…

Would You Wear: Painted Space Shoes?

For $180, Etsy artist Sheriff Nasir will paint you a custom pair of space age wedge heels. I think they're absolutely gorgeous, but I might be more tempted to display them on a shelf than actually wear them. How about you? Would you dare to wear the galaxy on your feet? [via…

Unlikely Style Icon: Young Hillary Rodham Clinton

If I had access to a time machine, I would head straight back to the '70s and befriend young Hillary Clinton. The girl had it goin' on: she was (and still is) smart, funny, ambitious, and passionate about women's rights. The main difference between Hillary then and Hillary now? The amazing hippie wardrobe she abandoned…

Girl Talk: I’m Stressed Out About Wrinkles

I'm 25, going on 26, and I am very proud to call myself a feminist. I think the standard of beauty in this country is bulls**t. I like to question authority and talk about the meaning of life and also I'm really stressed out about fine lines that are starting to show up around my…

An Open Letter To Orange

Dear Orange, I feel like you and I got off on the wrong foot. Or, at least we would have, if you had feet. You're just a color so that wasn't really the correct phrase to use. But here's the thing...

An Imagined Conversation With This Model

Me: Hey, are you wearing those stick-on bra cups? Model (who just happens to be Holly Madison): Yep! Aren't they cute? Me: Well, I'm not sure if cute is the right word...

Awesome Affordable Etsy Find: Treat Your Baby Right

I pity the baby who doesn't have a onesie with Mr. T's face on it. Seriously though, if you've been looking for a badass baby shower gift, it doesn't get more badass than this. [$14.99, Truly Sanctuary]…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: “Roseanne”

I went to the University of Hawaii for a semester during my junior year of college. I had a room with an inexplicably king-sized bed and a panoramic view of the ocean. There was a farmer's market down the street that sold fresh pineapples and papayas. I ate shaved ice for breakfast and sweet bread…

How Colorful Is Your Closet?

The vast majority of my clothes are black, which means my closet is almost as dark as a Stanley Kubrick film. Usually I'm okay with this arrangement. I prefer to bring color into my wardrobe with accessories--hot pink shoes, bright blue tights, gold costume jewelry--but there are times when I see someone rocking a bright…
