Hawaiian prints were all over the spring and resort runways this year–from Stella McCartney, Dries Van Noten and more. And now that it’s summer, it finally seems appropriate to break them out. While Hawaiian shirts might traditional be the purview of men, we’ve found girly, feminine interpretations of the trend for ladies. Check ‘em out!

A headline in the UK Sun that read “Curry In Surrey” informed me that Brad and Angelina spent almost $4,000 on curry and booze at a London restaurant. A source at the Mogul in Bagshot curry house in Surrey said“There were five friends and two of their bodyguards there and they ordered a mountain of food and booze. It might seem hard to believe that they ran up a bill of nearly £3,000 at a normal curry house but they are really generous and extravagant.”
Generous and extravagant indeed. We wonder if we had that much money if we would take our friends out for dinner. Maybe so. But for $4,000 worth of curry? Definitely not. I mean, Brangelina, you could have just donated it to us. We need new computers. Click through to see more ridiculously expensive items celebs have burned their money on.
Happppppy Friday! I brought Lucca to the office today, and within 10 minutes she was engaging in a mini dog fight with a coworker’s pup. She’s rather dominant, just like her mommy. Okay, that’s your Lucca update for the day. Let’s see what we’re wearing!
For anyone who’s ever wondered what the downside to online dating is, allow me to present THIS GUY and his scary makeshift medieval weapon. And the other guys in this slideshow. And every other dude (and some women) on the blog OK Cupid Enemies, which collects truly abhorrent examples of singles currently on the market on the popular dating site. Prepare to be very, very scared. [OK Cupid Enemies]
Note: I have taken it upon myself to blur their faces, but OK Cupid Enemies does not.
It’s not hard to understand why screenwriters love to make the male lead some kind of carpenter or woodworker: its a vaguely “manly” sounding job yet free-spirited and there’s ample opportunity to take their shirts off. I realized this the other night when I saw “Peace, Love & Misunderstanding” and fell head over heels in lust with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who plays Catherine Keener’s super-sensitive love interest yet is also a manly-man carpenter. He’s a poor man’s Javier Bardem, but I won’t have to shank Penelope Cruz to get him in bed. Mmm-mmm. You can hammer my nail anytime, Jeffrey. Screw my bolts. Level my 2-x-4. Drill, baby, drill!
Enough with the double entendres. After the jump, eight more hot carpenters of film and television. I’m sure you’ll be impressed with how well they work with their wood. (Sorry.)
Many of us probably take tampons for granted. I mean, they’re nice in that they prevent us from bleeding on our light-colored pants, but but did you know that they could also save your life? Survivalist Creek Stewart has highlighted 10 ways you could use a humble tampon to extend your life in the wild, and trust me–it’s not quite what you’d expect. Click through to check ‘em out, that is, if you want to live! [The Art of Manliness]
Oh, Florida what strange gifts you deliver us. This month is officially Naked Ladies On The Roadside month. On Tuesday, Tracy Mabb was arresting for causing a traffic hazard by exposing herself. “She first started by pulling off her top and revealing her breasts, but didn’t stop there. She also gave drivers and pedestrians a full view of her ‘vagina and buttocks.’ The arrest reports claims that she did so with a ‘complete vulgar and indecent manner.’ When confronted by police, she refused to put her clothes on, and shouted, ‘I don’t give a f**k,’” the Sun Sentinel reported.
At least she didn’t pleasure herself like the woman last week. What do we think? Are bath salts to blame here? Whatever the cause for her indecent exposure, her mugshot it epic. Is it just me or does she kind of look like Dave Pirner from Soul Asylum? Click on through for more amazing female mug shots. [The Gloss]
Chanel events always, without fail, draw an extraordinarily dressed crowd — Karl Lagerfeld, after all, only associates with the most fabulous of people (and yes, the same standard applies to his choice in pets). The Parisian fashion house feted the opening of a 113-photo exhibit to preface Lagerfeld’s upcoming photo book, a collaboration with former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld. “The Little Black Jacket: Chanel’s Classic Revisited” features celebs like Sarah Jessica Parker, Kanye West, and Tilda Swinton celebrating — what else? — Chanel’s iconic little black jacket. If you’re in the New York City area, the exhibit opens Friday, June 8 (that’s tomorrow, y’all) at 18 Wooster St. and runs for a week, and the book comes out on August 15. If you can’t make it to check out the show, and don’t feel up to cashing out $98 for a book (me neither), here’s the next best thing: the good, the bad, and the “what in the name of Coco was she thinking” from last night’s event. Commençons!
Random story time: when I was an intern, I had no style. I wore a pair of Nine wedge flip-flops every day that made my feet bleed. They don’t make interns like they used to — I want to steal all the outfits that Interns Shannen, Daley, and Morgan have worn so far. I can assure you no one wanted to steal my style back in 1997 when I interned at Jane magazine. Anyway, let’s see what we’re wearing today!
I used to harbor an inexplicable hatred for button-down blouses. Actually, I can explain. I don’t mean the actual blouses themselves, or on other people — I actually would see other people wearing them and be jealous of how good they looked. The problem was when I would try them on myself. Suddenly, my shoulders looked broad, my boobs flattened, and my hips enormous. I continued to try them every once in a while in hopes that I would one day be the type of girl who looked good in them… and now I am! My body didn’t change or anything, I just realized that I was going for the wrong type of shirt. Starchy button-downs still look terrible on my difficult-to-dress figure, but it turns out that a semi-sheer, silky blouse might even be my best look. They don’t fare well for the summertime, which is why I’m turning to the sleeveless variety to carry me through.
