Zergnet: Simply Irresistible

This year’s Lingerie Fashion Week in New York coincided with the 75th anniversary of the invention of nylon stockings, and the pin-up inspired lingerie line Secrets In Lace celebrated with a vintage runway show and burlesque performance. From the sounds of it, the show was the kind of fashion celebration vintage dreams are made of — models walked the runway to live jazz music, burlesque star Angie Pontani performed, and a host of curvy models rocked Dita Von Teese’s nylon line, which is manufactured on the machines that created the original nylon stockings of the 1940s. It’s so refreshing to see a fashion show that highlights the female body as is without the body image-crushing restrictions of most modern runways.

I have an ongoing obsession with Kourtney’s pregnancy style. Maybe it’s because I’m petite/curvy like her and like her fashion ideas for my body type, or maybe it’s just because she has super duper expensive clothes and thus looks way more chic than your average reality TV star. All I can say is that she looks adorable in her latest venture out shopping for baby clothes with her sister Khloe. Where do I get myself one of those half cardigan/half semi-jacket hybrid things she is wearing? How does she make a baby bump look so cute? How does she compel me to use the twee phrase “baby bump” without rolling my eyes? I must say, I also adore the way she and Khloe hold hands when the paparazzi hounds them. The sisters look much cuter walking side by side than Kourt and Lord Disick even on their best day. [Image via Fame/Flynet]
You know what they say, go big or go home. Y’all, I am SICK of wearing clothes that pinch my skin, “hug” my curves (more like strangle, amiright?) and are “figure-flattering” from head-to-toe. What does that even mean anyway? When I see clothing items described as “shrunken” my instinct is to run in the other direction.
I recently found an old photo of me from 11th grade, when I was really into wearing all oversized everything. It wasn’t a good look, but what is a good look is pairing oversized pieces with your more body-conscious pieces — the contrast in proportions is super chic and also gives you room to breathe. Here are 16 big, baggy, bad ass pieces I’m currently digging.
It’s pretty clear that just about all of us have an inner basic bitch, whether she’s hiding deep within our heart or on display right on the sleeve of our North Face fleece. So if we’re all a little bit basic, why is it something to be ridiculed? When rocked a certain way, “basic” sartorial choices can look really chic — and maybe that’s why they’re so popular in the first place. Plenty of celebs seem to feel the same way and have no problem putting a sexy, stylish twist on their ensembles of leggings, top knots, infinity scarves, yoga pants, ballet flats, North Face jackets, Uggs and Starbucks cups — and they look damn good doing it. Click through for a few celebs who are happy to prove that dressing like an alleged “basic” can be a winning choice.
It seems like everyone with a Netflix account and a pair of ovaries (and many people with neither) are rewatching “Gilmore Girls” this month, and I haven’t felt this much Stars Hollow togetherness since 2007! I’ve been in love with this show for years, and I’ll take any excuse to binge watch it. I just made it through the first season, and I’ve noticed a few things: 1) Most of the main characters were developed from the very beginning! 2) Luke and Lorelai need to get it together already, and 3) WTF were they wearing?

I have a theory: Esquire is on women’s side when it comes to the whole friendzone thing. Meaning, they get it. When a woman decides that she’s not romantically interested in one of her male friends, that’s kind of the bottom line. She’s drawn her boundaries in their relationship and that’s the end of the story. And that’s why they’re giving men terrible, terrible fashion advice to get out of the “friendzone.” Keep reading »
