TGIF! This weekend, my plan is to finish reading Jeffrey Eugenides The Marriage Plot, then start on Mindy Kaling’s book. If I get through that, I’m on to Swamplandia! So, basically, I’m reading all weekend. Click through to see what we’re wearing today and then share what your weekend plans are — or what you’re reading if you’re not pulling your nose out of a book in order to socialize either — in the comments!

Last night, I fell into a little bit of Flickr k-hole as I discovered and combed through a treasure trove of vintage ads targeted at women. Various household cleansers! Brillo pads! Life-changing appliance materials! A perfume called “Macrame”! And a crocheted toilet paper cover that looks like a poodle? Oh yes. Some of these are positively frame-worthy. And just wait until you see my slideshow of vintage homemaker magazines… Keep reading »
James Bond fans, meet your two new Bond girls. Today in London, the cast and crew of “Skyfall,” the name of the 23rd James Bond film, gathered for a press conference and revealed for the first time which women would be distracting the notorious ladies man 007. According to TooFab:
French actress Berenice Marlohe, who stunned in a sexy red dress, will play the glamorous Severine … though, at the moment, not much more is known about her character. Naomie Harris will also star in the film as a field agent named Eve — and Harris revealed she’s been doing yoga, stunt driving and firing machine guns to prepare for the role. We like her already.

For today’s “What Are We Wearing?” intro, I decided to channel James Lipton (easy enough) and ask the Frisky crew a random question, the answer for which would obviously have far deeper meaning than intended. The question: “What is your least favorite smell?” With little hesitation: “Old saran wrap. Smells weird” (Ami); “Funeral Home perfume. After that, cat pee” (Jessica); “Honey vanilla tea. Sorry, that’s weird. It just makes me want to gag” (Julie). As for me? Buffalo wings. Or maybe I just hate the smell of sports bars. Anyway, here’s what we’re wearing today!
Bomber jackets have been around for almost 100 years–it’s hard to find a style more enduring than that. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite modern takes on this classic coat, and here’s the best part: they’re all under 100 bucks. Bombs away!
I think of Anne Hathaway as an arbiter of class. I speak for myself, but I’ve never heard or read anything that depicted Anne to be any less than a contemporary Audrey … except for maybe the financial crimes of her ex-BF, but we can’t hold that against her. Earlier this week, Anne attended the Princess Grace Awards Gala here in NYC alongside Julie Andrews and Princess Charlene of Monaco (wow, she hangs out with such riffraff!). When I saw the pictures from the event online, I was ridiculously impressed by her ability to carry this embellished dress. I am a harsh critic of sparkle and shine on clothing, but Anne’s Valentino could make a convert out of me. This got me thinking: what other celebrities have rocked sparkly dresses with total class? There’s not an ounce of garishness on any of these ladies.
