Dress Porn: 21 Drop-Dead Gorgeous Gowns From New York Fashion Week

My favorite thing about fashion week is the craaaazy things designers parade down the runways in an effort to stand out, like bondage hula skirts and models with giant, eye-less lizard heads. My second favorite thing is looking at the season’s fresh crop of breathtakingly opulent gowns, and the Spring/Summer 2013 collections didn’t disappoint. Here are 21 of the most gorgeous gowns that showed up on the runways this week, many of which quite literally made my jaw drop when I saw them. So. Freakin’. Beautiful.

This is Obie, who is quickly gaining fame in his quest to lose weight and become the Dachshund Biggest Loser. His story began when a relative of his owners, an elderly couple in failing health, asked the Oregon Dachshund Rescue for help. They’d been showing Obie love with food and were unable to provide him with physical activity, and now this pup was in trouble. The organization posted a plea on Facebook: could someone foster Obie and help him get healthy? Nora Vanatta, an EMT and veterinary technician from Portland, stepped up to the plate, and when Obie arrived from Seattle, he weighed a whopping 77 pounds. Now this sweet pup is in the process of losing 40 pounds on a low-fat, high-protein diet, and inspiring other overweight canines to get fit with his “Biggest Loser, Doxie Edition” Facebook page, which already has over 33,000 fans. “My hope is that he can be an inspiration to any person or animal trying to lose weight,” says Vanatta. Obie, we’re all cheering for you. [OregonLive]

"It's a way to express your passive aggression."

It’s been so crazy and fascinating to watch Tavi rise from 11-year-old fashion blogger to the editor of her own magazine, Rookie, and bonafide celebrity. Now she’s working the media circuit to spread the word about Rookie Yearbook One, a new book featuring the best articles, photos, and illustrations from Rookie‘s first year. Stopping by “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” yesterday, Tavi was poised, insightful, and funny as she described her rise in the fashion world, getting her hand stroked by Bjork, and, of course, how she perfected her bitchface technique. The whole interview is great, but the bitchfacing tutorial starts at the 2:45 mark. [Late Night with Jimmy Fallon]

4 Seriously Dumb Things I’ve Done Because I’m Scared Of Bees

What grosses you out?
Don't get me started on hairs in my food... Read More »

I went to a wedding this weekend at a beautiful farm outside of Portland. When it came time to eat, we all took our plates outside to sit at picnic tables under a small grove of trees. The sun was out, a pleasant breeze was blowing, horses were frolicking in an adjacent field, and I spent the whole time hyperventilating as a group of yellow jackets darted around the table and one of them leisurely ate my sandwich.

To answer the obvious question, no, I’m not allergic to bee stings, I’ve just harbored a phobia of bees ever since I was a kid (or maybe ever since I saw “My Girl”?) that, to my chagrin, hasn’t abated in adulthood. Here are four ridiculous things I’ve done as a result of my ridiculous fear of bees… Keep reading »

Mom Trades In SUV For Family Bike; Makes The Rest Of Us Look Incredibly Lazy

This is Emily Finch, a mother of six who traded in her gas-guzzling Suburban for a thigh-burning family bike. Apparently a full load of kids, gear, and groceries can weigh up to 550 pounds, but Finch keeps pedaling away in her cute wedge sandals, making sure to “rotate kids into pumping position to keep them fresh.” Would anyone be surprised if I told you she lives in Portland? Anyone? Anyone? That’s what I thought. [Bike Portland]
