We’ve been waiting not-so-patiently for the Christmas release date of the latest movie incarnation of “The Great Gatsby” ever since we saw the amazing trailer (seriously, could time move any slower?!). In the meantime, we’re going to show our Gatsby street cred with this amazing tank top, which should instantly make us the coolest attendee of any and all summer parties. Pair it with cute cutoffs, embellished sandals, and do The Charleston like nobody’s watching. [$31, Skreened]

Check out the straight spines and perfect smiles of these ladies competing in the 1956 Chiropractor’s Beauty Contest. After spending nine hours a day hunched in front of our computers, our vertebrae probably aren’t so pretty anymore–we’d be lucky to get Miss Congeniality. [The Nifty Fifties]
This weekend my friend Molly and I went to the fabric store and picked out a piece of gorgeous black fabric with pink polka dots. “You know,” said the woman at the counter, “we’re not supposed to call this color ‘black’ anymore. ‘Caviar’ is the new black.” Molly and I were stunned by this new development, and it got me wondering about other blase color names that could be replaced with elite artifacts from the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Check out my suggestions after the jump, and please share your own ideas in the comments! Keep reading »
Whatever the reason, there often comes a time in our lives when reading takes a back seat to, you know, everything else. Maybe your crazy schedule leaves you no time to go to the library, let alone relax with a good book. Maybe Twitter has ruined your ability to read anything longer than 140 characters.

We’re celebrating Rad Reads Week here at The Frisky, which just happens to be the perfect time to rediscover the magic of a good book. Wondering how to get back in the habit? Check out our 10 tips, after the jump! Keep reading »

There are certain places in the world–Maui, for example–that invite you to slow down, take a breath, and consider this amazing world we live in and our place in it. Inspired by that pristine ocean view, I decided to hunt down a few more perfect places for pondering. From waterfalls to banyan trees to a stunning starry sky, click through to check them out…
Sometimes an outfit is so perfect it makes me gasp and do a little office chair dance. Example: this chic, summery ensemble sported by Freida Pinto on her way out of “The Today Show” studios. I love the dreamy yellow dress, the crisp blazer, and trendy details like the colorful snakeskin bag, oversize sunglasses, and raspberry lipstick. Perhaps the best accessories of all? Those exquisite eyebrows! Damn, girl. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
