Wedge sandals are a huge trend right now, and many pairs include obvious nods to 1970s footwear: chunky platforms, wood heels, brown leather, gold accents, crochet details, etc. One of my favorite summer looks is chunky vintage-style sandals with a breezy sundress; it’s such a simple and flattering combination. Click through for some super cute, super ’70s-inspired sandals that fit the bill — all for less than a hundred bucks…
Any bookworm with a strong imagination has probably pictured herself in the throes of fictional passion with any or all of the men that grace the pages of her tomes of choice. Just in case you should ever find yourself in such a situation in real life, with a real man, there are some important pieces of advice you’ll need to make the kill. Here is a categorized guide to landing the literary hero of your fantasies.
Since it’s The Frisky’s 7 Days To A Prettier Place week, we are showing off our humble abodes. My apartment would be considered large and in charge by New York standards, but don’t get too jealous. I live in a less desirable outer borough, I have a roommate, and the best thing about my apartment is also its Achilles heel — it hasn’t been remodeled since 1970. Literally. Sometimes I want to pull up the red shag carpeting or lime green, floral linoleum myself, but hey, I rent. My 80-year-old Greek landlord who lives downstairs would be displeased. Instead of fighting the apartment’s kitschy vibe, my roommate and I have tried to embrace it full-on. Check out the rest of my groovy grandma pad after the jump.
A desk is a great way to make you feel like a real-life adult-type person (I don’t have a desk). Desks give you a place to stretch out and get work done away from the distraction of the TV, a dedicated place to focus your energies when you need to do work, and perhaps most importantly, a place to hide all the floating papers, junk mail and ephemera that can sometimes take over your life. After the jump, we’ve found a selection of desks to pretty up your place.
So, unlike most of the New York-based Frisky crew, I live just outside of Portland, Oregon. I love my place, which is a one-bedroom in a condo complex (the owner rents it out) that I share with my boyfriend, Nick. Maybe it’s due to growing up with a scientist father who had a large shelf in the living room dedicated to manta ray exoskeletons, but my favorite spaces are the ones that tell stories about the people who live there and spark conversations with the people who visit. I’ve tried to fill my apartment with weird and interesting things that make me happy and comfortable. Click through for a little tour!
We’re all for giving a dude a chance. Once you get past a certain age, you realize that there are no perfect men out there. You’re going to have to be more “accepting” if you don’t intend to be single forever. Sometimes the most princely men are the ones we wouldn’t normally go for or whose foibles are easy to get used to with a little paradigm shifting. Do it — throw out your list, be open-minded, look for a feeling and not for a set of qualities. With that being said, there are certain kinds of guys that should be avoided on your dating journey. Click through to see the 10 types of guys that we advise you to steer clear of. Good luck and may the force be with you.
Today, the word ‘douche’ is synonymous with ‘old school product we don’t actually need.’ Ads for douches seem to be laced with the intent to harm women’s self-esteem, not to mention our vaginas, as douching can actually cause infections. But these ads have an interesting history. Did you know that douche was originally considered a birth control method, back when birth control was illegal? Because of this, it was socially camouflaged as a “hygiene product.” From there, the ads evolved into mothers and daughters with cable-knit sweaters tied around their shoulders, having talks about “feminine odor” on the beach. After the jump, take a look at the history of douching and douche advertisements—which, to this day, are still trying to convince women that a Lysol-flavored vagina is a good thing.
A porno ‘stache, as defined by the Urban Dictionary, is a mustache that looks vaguely like a dead ferret sitting above the upper lip, reminiscent of a ’70s porn star. I just so happen to find these dead ferret-like ‘staches vaguely arousing. Bow chicka bow wow (or however you spell the sounds in bad porno music). Lucky for me these, ‘staches are beginning to find themselves nestling on famous upper lips again. Yessss! Porno chic is back en vogue.
Click through to see some of the sexiest porno ‘staches — both golden oldies and modern marvels. Try to keep your clothes on, ladies.
We were disturbed enough by the John McCain campaign staffer who courted a 17-year-old by visiting her at her high school. But yesterday, we heard about actor Doug Hutchison, the actor from “Lost” and “The Green Mile,” and his new bride, wannabe country singer Courtney Alexis Stodden. He’s 51. She is 16. And while it’s obvious from their wedding photo that neither of them looks their age, just … EWWWW. (Also, is that really their wedding photo? Creepy.) Of course, the couple recognizes that they are unusual. “We’re aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial,” they said in a statement. “But we’re very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless.” Her parents, apparently, approve of the union. [E! Online] This is hardly the fist case where a famous adult fell for a teenager. After the jump, other folks who had relationships with someone underage.
