I didn’t sleep well last night and then Lucca barfed all over my comforter this morning (she’s fine, I think she just had a tummy ache), so I decided to work from home. With Ami off for the day and Julie working from home as well, it was looking like it might be a dull day in the office for Jessica and Kate and unlikely we would do a “What Are Wearing Today” slideshow. But Kate and Jess gathered a couple behind-the-scenes Frisky staffers and peer-pressured them into joining the style parade. Click on to find out what they are wearing today!
We couldn’t help but fall a little bit for Peter Som’s exuberant, larger-than-life flower prints in his Spring/Summer 2012 collection. But one thing we can’t abide — or afford — is Som’s exorbitant designer prices. So we’ve searched around and found 10 pieces that evoke the same sense of joy and happiness that Som’s flowers do, without the majorly bummer price tag. The key to wearing any of these floral items? Make sure to keep everything else very, very basic. Check out our picks!
Rum-flavored vanilla ice cream packed with fudge-covered rum and malt balls. Yummy, right? Until I tell you that the name of this new Ben & Jerry’s ice cream flavor is Schweddy Balls! Named after an installment of the “Saturday Night Live’” sketch Delicious Dish featuring Pete Schweddy (played by Alec Baldwin), this flavor pays homage to testes. What? You don’t want to lick Schweddy Balls? Aw, come on. Why not suck on a scoop (or two if you want to be anatomically correct) before this tasty limited edition treat shrinks away.

Mos Def says that he is most definitely done with his name. While performing with Talib Kweli this weekend, he revealed that he giving up his moniker and changing it to Yasiin. “I’m retiring the Mos Def name after 2011. I’m actually doing it,” he said. “Mos Def is a name that I built and cultivated over the years, it’s a name that the streets taught me, a figure of speech that was given to me by the culture and by my environment, and I feel I’ve done quite a bit with that name and it’s time to expand and move on.” [Huffington Post]
With this, Mos Def joins an elite cadre of celebrities who changed their name mid-career. After the jump, a run-down.
Happy Thursday, everyone! One more day until the weekend — don’t you just love a short week? I think we should have three day weekends once a month. Keep clicking to see what we’re wearing today…
This morning, on my way to work at the bright-eyed hour of 8 a.m., I was joined in the elevator by one of the long and lithe fashion models that live in my apartment building. I don’t see them that often, as they tend to keep odder hours than my usual nine-to-five. I wonder why she’s up to early? I wondered, covertly starring (up) at her as the floors ticked downward. Her face was scrubbed free of makeup and she was thumbing through an appointment book. Oh wait! Duh. It’s fashion week, I recalled. I had blocked it out sort of. I very much love clothes, but I am not particularly fond of discussing them in great depth, which is why I “read” Luckylike a picture book. And that is exactly how we are going to be presenting some of the Spring/Summer 2012 collections being shown at New York Fashion Week; pithy intros plus photos of pretty clothes! First up is BCBG, a line that is actually kind of sort of affordable for us non-rich types. Three things I love about this collection:
- The colors: Lime! Lemonade! Cerulean! (I think?)
- The prints: The Missoni-esque stripes are lovely, but I’m especially obsessed with the mix of more “ethnic” prints with architectural color-blocking.
- The open shoulders: I’m sorry, but who doesn’t have gorgeous shoulders? This trend is something I can get behind because it would flatter everyone.
That, my friends, is as “fashion talk-y” as I am going to get today. Click onward to see a bunch of the looks from the BCBG Spring/Summer 2012 runway show!
Rosie O’Donnell is back on the TV scene, hosting a new talk show on OWN, and she promises she’s left her inner rage-a-holic behind. In a recent interview, she opened up about her anger issues. “You know, I think I had a lot more rage than I was aware of … But I’ve gotten back access to my other feelings. I’m not cut off from my emotions anymore … The rage has gone away … There’s been a healing,” she revealed in O Magazine. So what put an end to her anger jags? Rosie claims her estrogen levels were so low that she was unable to function normally. She says stabilizing her hormones soothed the savage beast. Very interesting. Maybe this tip will help other angry ladies. [People]

Among your cadre of summer-to-fall jacket options, consider the cropped trench. It’s cute, versatile and can be worn as both outerwear and — if you’re feeling particularly daring — as a blazer. We saw a girl wearing one today and were particularly covetous of the easy way the blazer fell over her long T-shirt and seemed to flop just perfectly over her clavicle. We’ve assembled 10 options for your perusal. Let us know what you think!
The Frisky staff agrees on many things. We disagree on lots too. One of those things happens to be the weather. Crazy, layer-loving Jessica is thrilled that “colder weather” is on its way, while I am already anticipating an early start to my usual bout of winter-induced seasonal depression. Ahh, well. I can’t always get my way. Keep clicking to see what we’re wearing today…
Courtney Stodden’s Twitter, the gift that keeps on giving. Last week, Courtney’s super sexy sensual tweets taught me how to take my own 140 character purple prose up a notch, but I knew there was so much more to learn from the 17-year-old wife of 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchison. In addition to her enviable vocabulary, Courtney really knows how to assemble a complex sentence, revealing many important lessons in grammar. So, class, the bell has rung — it’s time for Grammar 101 with Professor Amelia and my assistant @CourtneyStodden. Take your seats and click onward!
