There I was, just a few moments ago, sitting at a coffee shop in West Hollywood, sippin’ on a Vietnamese iced coffee and feeling pretty AFB about life, when a random woman approached me and complimented me on my dress.
“It looks so lovely on you,” she said kindly.
“Why thank you!” I replied. “The weather is so beautiful and warm, I thought I’d wear a white dress today!”
No matter where you are — in a coffee shop in West Hollywood or taking shelter from the rain in NYC or somewhere else entirely — warmer temps are around the corner (in the Northern Hemisphere at least), so white dress season can be yours for the taking. Here are 17 little white dresses that are totally compliment-worthy.
It might be a wrap on the first weekend of Coachella, but we’re still getting over some of the random celebrities that decided to descend on Indio, California, for the Music and Arts Festival. To this group of celebs that seemed to stand out like a hand full of sore thumbs, we have three words for you: Just Say No-chella.
Did you get a chance to step outside last night/early this morning to look at the blood moon? This was the first full lunar eclipse in three years, and the first in a series of four that will conclude in September 2015. the Earth will begin to position itself between the sun and the moon for the first of a series of four total eclipses to conclude in September 2015. As for the red hue? As CNN explains it, “In a total lunar eclipse, the full moon turns a coppery red as it passes into Earth’s shadow. During the process, the moon’s bright glow dims, taking on a red hue because of shimmers of sunlight and sunsets seeping through the Earth’s atmosphere.” Gorgeous.

I know as well as anyone that nothing stands between a woman and her wine, and in the case of Florida’s Desiree J. Taylor, that includes pants. The 35-year-old woman was caught on a surveillance camera meandering around a Publix supermarket in Ocala in just a T-shirt and a pair of slippers, listening to music on her tablet, and then waltzing out of the store with a stolen case of boxed wine under her arm. She was arrested yesterday morning on charges of disorderly conduct, resisting a merchant and petty theft, police said. I’m guessing they decided not to charge her with indecent exposure on account of the fact that she at least paired her pantlessness with a T-shirt that came down to the tops of her thighs. Let this be a lesson, criminals — if you’re going to go pantless, make sure you’re at least wearing a top that could pass for a mini dress. [Crime Feed]
Shockingly enough, pantless crimes are really quite common. It seems like every other week I read a story about the police picking up a perp who forgot to put his or her pants on before committing some nefarious deed. Way to be discreet! Here are just eight mostly recent examples of criminals who drew even more attention to their illegal activity by breaking the law pantless…
I am so pumped that spring weather has arrived! Shorter hemlines, lighter fabrics and happier prints, GET AT ME. Speaking of the latter, one of my favorite trends for spring is fruit. Lemons, limes, strawberries, watermelon and pineapple abound in many of the textiles being used for everything from dresses and skirts to crop tops and rompers. Seriously, looking at that striped pineapple dress in the middle is making me both hungry and sartorially inspired. Click through for more fruity fashion…
Cupcakes and macarons have had their day in the spotlight. I propose we elect these delightful little cakewiches — yes, I just made that up — as the latest “it” dessert. Easier to bake than a macaron and more portable than a cupcake, these treats have moved to the top of my must-bake list. Try one of these inventive recipes and report back on your favorites.
Katherine Heigl once had an extremely promising career, starring on “Grey’s Anatomy” and in a number of (shitty) rom-coms, but she hasn’t been able to get a job recently thanks to the terrible reputation she and her manager mom have for their diva-like demands. I don’t think her latest headline-making stunt is going to win her any fans — she’s suing Duane Reade drugstores for six million dollars because they tweeted the above photo. I guess her argument is that they used her image to promote their stores without her permission and without paying her, which isn’t okay because she is “a highly successful television and motion picture actress, producer and celebrity” in “high demand.” RECORD SCRATCH. Have a stadium full of seats, Katie Heigl. Highly successful TV and movie actresses don’t need to sue drug store chains because they tweeted a photo. Also, I’m pretty sure Katherine Heigl isn’t worth six million. Ugh, this lawsuit gives me secondhand embarrassment like whoa. [TMZ]
We like in a litigious country so this is of course not the only totally stupid and ridiculous lawsuit related to a celeb’s name and image. Here are a few more…
