Brush Up On Your Turban Tying Skills

When the first “Sex and the City” movie was released, the midnight showing garnered an interesting mix: 20-something girls with their friends alongside teeny-boppers dressed in their best prom outfits attempting to pull off the Carrie Bradshaw style. So if this is any indication of the audience we can expect to find for the sequel, then get ready for more imitations of the characters’ fashion choices and fake Cosmos in the theaters. But this time, taking the place of tutu dresses will be Carrie’s vacation-inspired outfits from Pat Field, including one very interesting, standout turban. So, in preparation, it’s time to get to practicing your turban-tying skills. [For some us who couldn't be less excited about "SATC2," it's simply handy to know how to tie a mean turban. -- Editor] Read on for step-by-step instructions. Keep reading »

“True Life”: Skinny Jeans Destroyed A Man’s Privates

You have boring spoofs and you have hilarious spoofs. This parody of MTV’s “True Life” series is one of the latter because it hits the ridiculousness of the show right on the nose. Like that kid who was “addicted” to tattoos and had to get one every time he got drunk, the young man in this video can’t stop wearing skinny jeans, even though they wore away his penis and scrotum. I have to say the part about the sagging is so painfully true. I wish dudes would stop sagging their jeans. Check out the video above. Keep reading »

Last week, we asked you to share your style advice in exchange for an Anna Beck Designs Kecil necklace. Everyone can benefit from a little help in the fashion department, and you guys wrote up some awesome tips that’ll help us get dressed in the morning, but bellarose‘s comment was our favorite:

Don’t wear anything you wouldn’t want to be caught in an accident or disaster wearing. You never know what could happen during your day. Always look and feel your best! Your apartment could catch on fire and the only clothes you would be left with would be the ones you are wearing — hope you’re looking cute and comfy!

Donna Karan Auctions Off Internships To Rich Kids

You’ve got five more days to pay $3,000 for a week-long internship in Donna Karan‘s PR department, get going! If that sentence sounded a little off to you, you’re not alone. Designer Donna Karan is auctioning off a short-term internship and we find that a little gross, elitist, etc. The only saving grace is the fact that the proceeds go to help out the Stephen Gaynor School, an awesome place for kids with learning difficulties. It’s not so much that the designer’s heart is in the wrong place as the fact that an opportunity that should be merit-based is being sold like a designer dress that very few can afford, and that feels icky to us.
