Style Stealer: Geri Haliwell Is Cute, Casual Spice

After turning in a killer reunion performance with the rest of the Spice Girls at the Olympics closing ceremony, Ginger Spice Geri Haliwell jetted off to the south of France to recover.

If stealing her style is what you want (what you really, really want), then check out our copycat look, after the jump! Keep reading »

In honor of How To Deal Week, today’s Saturday Playlist is a collection of songs that helped us get through tough times in our lives.

Listen to it as a whole, or pick and choose the tracks that speak to you, but either way, we hope this music will help you deal with whatever you’re going through.

I suppose in some ways I was destined to become a control freak. I was born into a proud dynasty of control freaks. My family is Italian, and growing up it was made very clear to me that a woman’s job is to keep everyone–especially the men–in line. Not only was I the oldest child, I was the only girl with three younger brothers, so I had a big job to do. If one of my brothers did something dumb, I could expect a call from my grandma asking why I’d “let him act that way.” “You have to control your brothers,” my great aunt would tell me as she rolled out biscotti dough. “If you don’t, who will?” Keep reading »

I am obsessed with Serena Williams. In fact, she’s kind of my idol. I mean, this woman can serve a tennis ball at 128 miles per hour(!), win $38 million in prize money, wear a lycra catsuit at the US Open, swear at line judges, guest star on “Law and Order: SVU,” sell clothes on the Home Shopping Network, and become a certified nail technician. She is a goddess. Needless to say, I think she looks sizzling in this tight red dress she wore for a post-gold medal appearance on “Letterman.” Paired with embellished platforms and big, beautiful hair, this outfit is freakin’ fierce. Game, set, match! [Photo: Splash News]

This piece is part of The Frisky’s How To Deal Week, in which we’re tackling mental health issues.

As an oldest child/perfectionist/control freak/Taurus, asking for help is one of my least favorite things. Whether I’m doing a crossword puzzle or weathering an emotional storm, I’ll handle it on my own, thankyouverymuch. Over the past year, though, I’ve been dealing with some pretty intense life changes and found myself in the position where I literally couldn’t get through it alone. I was drowning, and I had no choice but to reach out and grab the outstretched hands of my amazing friends, who pulled me to shore and gently guided me toward the office of a therapist, where I swallowed my pride and said, “You know what? I’m not doing so well.” In the process, I learned how important it is to be able to ask for help, especially when you’re feeling lost, overwhelmed, or alone. Here’s why… Keep reading »

Dear Whoever Took The Baja Hoodie My Neighbor Left In A “Free” Box On The Sidewalk,

When I saw that my neighbor had placed a Baja hoodie out on the sidewalk in a box marked “free,” along with a diverse collection of books, glassware, a compost bin, and what appeared to be an old washcloth, I laughed. This striped gray and black garment reminded me of the precious group of stoner skateboarders who lurked in the halls of my rural high school (once I wrote a feature story for the school paper about how the skater boys were misunderstood and deserved at least as much respect as our chapter of the Future Farmers of America). It reminded me of a guy in my freshman fiction class who would plagiarize Nietzsche during workshops and always wore–you guessed it–a Baja hoodie. It reminded me of the glassy-eyed surfers I met when I lived in Hawaii.

I didn’t know which neighbor abandoned it, but I can be relatively sure this person attended some reggae concerts in the early ’90s. I can be relatively sure they inhaled deeply and often. I can be relatively sure they recently got a “real job” and felt it was finally time to let go of their past.

What I couldn’t be sure of is who on earth would see a frayed Baja hoodie peeking out of a box on the sidewalk and think, “Score!” Since the box had been placed directly under my office window, I decided to wait and see…

Celeb Street Style Spotlight: Leather Shorts

Done well, leather shorts can hit the perfect balance of classy and edgy–hell, if they’re the right size and cut, they can even be flattering (yes, really!).
