Start Saving Up, Hipsters: This Bike Costs $70,000

Classic Schwinn not doing it for you anymore? Yearning for a ride that will really get you noticed? How about this one-of-a-kind beech wood bike? Inspired by a famous 19th century chair designed by Michael Thonet (side note: who are the people who are keeping track of famous chairs? Should I know about famous chairs?), it will cost you $70,000, but hey, it’s a small price to pay for total exclusivity. Careful though: that 5-figure price tag doesn’t include brakes.

Dear Fat Girl,

Last week, I saw an overweight news anchor respond to a bully with such power and confidence that it made me cry. It also made me want to write about my own experience of being a fat girl. I almost wrote this letter to my younger self: a deeply sad, chubby fourth grader who endured horrific taunts from classmates at recess, and even worse abuse in her own head when she’d go home and look in the mirror. But then I realized that there is something about these two little words, “fat” and “girl,” that denotes a shared life experience. If you’ve ever been a fat girl, you know what it’s like to have a body that feels like an enemy, to suppress your own voice because you think it doesn’t count, to be informed with a sigh that you have “such a pretty face,” as if it’s a bit of a tragedy. Here are some things I wish someone would have told me, back when I felt so hopeless, back when I felt like I would never be anything more than the fat girl… Keep reading »

My little tea time routine involves brewing some vanilla chai, putting on some chill music, eating a square (or three) of dark chocolate, and flipping through a fashion magazine. It’s totally relaxing, but you know what’s missing? Mr. T glaring at me from the side of my teapot. Yep, that would really take the whole thing to the next level. [$18, Etsy]

Artist Leanie van der Vyver created these insanely high leather heels, aptly titled “Scary Beautiful,” to draw attention to the strange and intense ways humans alter themselves to achieve “perfection.” The front heel requires the wearer to lean forward onto their shins in order to stand and walk upright(ish). Extreme? Yes, but if you had no context at all for modern day beauty standards, would these seem any more ridiculous than a 6-inch studded Louboutin stiletto? Or a syringe full of Botulinum we use to voluntarily paralyze the muscles in our faces? Food for thought. Check out a scary, beautiful video of the shoes in action, after the jump… [Laughing Squid] Keep reading »

While out and about in London, the future first lady of Canada bravely rocked an ensemble that included partially shaved My Little Pony hair, punk rock skull t-shirt, quilted leather jacket, jersey maxi skirt, bowler bag, and Tory Burch sandals. I have 100% worn this outfit to Walgreens to pick up cold medicine, so I get it, but for a nice dinner in London? Not so sure about this, Avril. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

“We country folk, we like our big hair. I am certainly no exception. I just feel like … maybe it makes the rest of me look smaller. I’m not sure of my reasoning, but that’s the number-one thing I do, when someone fixes my hair, I put my fingers in it and make it look bigger.”

Carrie Underwood tells People magazine that she totally abides by the old southern saying, “The higher the hair, the closer to God.” I’m seeing Carrie in concert this Sunday, and will definitely be foofing my hair up as much as possible in her honor. Apologies in advance to whoever is sitting behind me. [People]
