Dammit, Madewell! Memorial Day weekend hasn’t even happened yet and you’re already pimping your fall 2012 line! And dammit again, Madewell, for making me want every single piece! Can’t a girl enjoy her summer wardrobe in peace? (Click through to see 20 of our favorite looks, many of which we’re sure to wear — or at least be inspired by — four months from now.)
When the weather takes a turn for the hot, hot, hot (fingers crossed it actually happens, I mean, does anybody remember winter?), societal requirements mandate you should be wearing clothes, but I’d rather be… not, not, not. Seriously, I love the warm weather, but the idea of sticky shorts and tank tops has me sweating already. It may not be so bad when you’re lounging poolside, but think New York City in the summer time, and by New York City I mean the subway. Ah, public transportation — for the low price of $2.25, you, too can have your perspiring thighs stuck to a metal bench or, even better, an equally swampy stranger. Fun! (No, terrible.) I don’t consider myself over-the-top girly, but dresses suddenly become a whole lot more attractive when the thought of putting my legs through pants makes me want to hop into the Hudson. I’m foreseeing loose, easy (/lazy), short, diaphanous, versatile, and white as the characteristics I’ll be desperately seeking in frocks this summer, and now’s the time to stock up before everyone beats you to it. After the jump, ten white dresses I can’t wait to get my (train-hopping, A/C-craving) hands on.
The annual Cannes Film Festival is on right now, and that means tons of celebs and luminaries are making their rounds on the red carpet. What are they wearing? Oh, all kinds of things. Check ‘em out after the jump.
I’m convinced that I am one of melting makeup’s worst victims. I have serious issues keeping my face on the other nine months of the year, let alone summer, when it’s prime time for super sexy sweaty skin. As such, I’ve been forced to develop some pretty hardcore techniques for keeping my makeup on as long as possible. The best strategy I can stand behind is to keep it minimal, especially as far as foundation goes — and by that, I mean no foundation at all. It may sound scary, but a little bit of tinted moisturizer and a whole lot of a good concealer can carry you through the day (and oh, those summer nights) without the spotty disintegrating effect a thicker formula tends to cause when things get heated. Thankfully, I’m not alone in this fight — some of my favorite brands have stepped up to give me a hand in my battle against the heat. Here are ten of my product picks for makeup that stays fresh, even when you feel anything but.
Shrimp Cocktail Toes: You might know it as toe overhang, but we prefer to call it Shrimp Cocktail, after the way toes sometimes hang over the edge of sandals and shoes like delicate shrimps. Ladies, you know when you’re buying shoes that are too small, forcing toes to cram in areas they shouldn’t, or too big, sliding toes to the end and off the edge of shoes. Keep fit in mind the next time you buy a pair of open-toe shoes, and take a lesson from these celebs: Shrimp Cocktail Toe is definitely not cute.
A Florida woman is reporting that she spotted Jesus on an episode of the “The Bachelor.” It wasn’t even the new season though, it was Brad Womack’s season, so I’m suspicious. What channel was airing that this week? And how convenient that this news be released during the week of the premiere of Emily Maynard’s run as “The Bachelorette.” I wonder if Brad is behind all this. Conspiracy!
Anyhow, Guerda Maurice of Port St. Lucie claims that she was watching an episode of “The Bachelor” and spotted a tent in the background that she wanted to put in her backyard, so she took a picture of the screen with her cell phone. That’s when things got divine. “My phone was vibrating and so warm, and very warm and hot like a burning smell,” said Maurice. “I flipped the phone and I see Jesus’ picture and I said, ‘Oh my God, where did this picture come from?’” And here is said picture of Bachelor Tent Jesus. Thoughts? My only thought is that if Jesus did choose to appear on Earth, I suspect he wouldn’t want to be associated with “The Bachelor” franchise. Unless he was attempting to present the world with a rose.
Any true believer will tell you that Jesus’ image can appear almost anywhere if you look hard enough. Keep on clicking to see some more of the craziest places Christ has popped up. [Mediaite]
