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!
Americans tend to think that we are the arbiters of cool. But you know what? After perusing a recent collection of photos of Russian hipsters in the city of Omsk, I’m inclined to think that we’ve dropped the cool ball and these guys are now leading the pack. Don’t believe me? Well, check out this selection of Russian hipster kid photos–and what we can learn from them. [English Russia]
We’ve been known to try our hands at baking every once in a while. But we typically stick to pretty standard stuff. And with good reason — deviate from the plan and you could wind up with one of the extreme cake disasters we discovered. These cakes prove that just because you can bake doesn’t mean you should.
