Wedding dress shopping. Here’s what happens to me: I walk into a bridal salon and tell the nice maternal saleswoman that I want a tea-length gown with no flowery accents. I am ushered into a dressing room where I am told that they have one tea length gown, it is covered in flowers, and did I want to try on, say, this $1,500 satin gown with a 14-foot train? For funsies? Repeat nine times. Nine. Nine.
“This is your one chance to be a princess!” one saleswoman told me. When I explained to her that my “princess” vision actually, like, seriously really did include a tea-length dress and she was just going to have to see if she could manage to wrap her mind around that, this total stranger looked at me like I had just shot her kitten point-blank in the face in the middle of the dress shop.
So, I went to the custom dressmaker. I told her what I wanted. She said she could totally do that, but she wouldn’t start the dress until next year, even though we’re getting married in April. Why?
“So you have time to get your weight where you want it.” Keep reading »
Meet reader Kara. She scares the s**t out of me. She dressed up as Regan from “The Exorcist” for Halloween this year and will be haunting my nightmares for the foreseeable future. Thanks, Kara. Please don’t drag me to hell.
Kara is not the only Frisky reader to send in their costume photos, in fact, over 30 of you responded to our callout, officially making me feel like the biggest sour puss ever for not dressing up this year. I’ve learned my lesson. We’ve got a Fraggle! Tributes to the Day of the Dead! Dexter Morgan and a hapless victim! Joan Holloway! A Pan-Am Stewardess! And many, many, many more! Happy Belated Halloween — and looking forward to seeing what you wear next year!
Upon discovering that Kim Kardashian’s 72 day marriage to Kris Humphries was ending, our first concern was the incredible fortune they amassed during their brief union . There’s the $17.9 million they raked in for their televised, fairy tale extravaganza, the $2.5 million People allegedly shilled out for exclusive photo rights, and, of course, their Gearys Beverly Hills registry, which included a $7,850 vase and a $730 ice bucket, to name a few of the ridiculous items. We don’t know the exact dollar amount they made off with … but it was a lot. (And apparently Kim has sold her divorce story to People for an as yet undisclosed sum!) After the jump, our suggestions for what the couple should do with their spoils. We’re sure their lawyers will disagree. Keep reading »
Pop quiz: Ryan Gosling : Amelia :: _______ : me. If you answered Joseph Gordon-Levitt, you’d be correct. Inspired by Ryan Gosling Vs. Puppies, I’ve decided to pit My Celebrity Boyfriend That Just Doesn’t Know That We’re Perfect For Each Other (Yet!) up against a gaggle of squee-inducing kittens. Will JGL defeat the appealing meows of tiny furry kittens, or has JGL’s hotness finally met its match? Worlds be colliding! And while my allegiances are fairly well-spelled out, you may want to challenge my choices. Commence debate in the comments!

Something is afoot in Hollywood! Toe cleavage is everywhere. Celebs are steppin’ out in heels cut so low you can practically see their pedicures — and let me tell you something: I like it. I am a big fan of toe cleavage. Perhaps because it’s cleavage that I have, as opposed to the traditional sort. I am rocking some nearly vulgar toe cleave today (as you’ll see later in “What Are We Wearing Today?”) and this morning, I spent an almost disturbing amount of time perusing the photos of celebrity toe cleave on toe cleavage blogs like The Toe Cleavage Blog. Yes, such a place exists and it is heaven if you are a fan of feet. Anyway, to hold you over until my toe cleave is revealed this afternoon, here are 18 examples of celebrity toe cleavage. (Mine is just as good, if not as rich and famous.)
Like a lot of people, my teeth were pushed and pulled with a variety of contraptions during my formative years. It all started innocently enough in 5th grade when I got spacers. Tiny rubber bands were wound between metal brackets that had been twisted around my back teeth. This was the first sign that my preteens were going to be painful and not because of my unflattering haircut and spotty fashion sense; those bands were an agent of torture. Sure, they came in bright, fun colors, but I learned quickly that neon pink things can be used as a torture device too. When my jaw became too sore to snack on Hot Pockets after school as per my usual routine, I knew that shit was getting real. Keep reading »

This magical borough in New York City is positively thick with emo blog hacks from Texas. But if this gritty urban paradise isn’t convenient, then the next best place to meet men is, you know, wherever. Keep reading »
