Let’s Get Nostalgic: Show Us Your Old School Easter Photos!

What’s not to love about Easter? The family time? The food? The Easter egg hunts and big ol’ baskets of chocolate? I’m a big fan of it all. But perhaps my favorite Easter pastime is watching the cute little kiddies run around in their Sunday best, looking like they were plucked directly from the pages of the JC Penny catalogue. And even better than that are the epic photos when kids are taken to the mall for the first (okay, or seventh) time to see the Easter Bunny. I remember when I was that age, and Easter was my JAM. So let’s reminisce, shall we?

Head over to The Frisky’s Facebook page, find Katie’s old school Easter photos (above!) and reply in the comment section of that picture with an Easter throwback pic of your own!

New Favorite Tumblr: Sad Desk Lunch

Do you eat lunch at your desk? I used to all the time, and still do occasionally. Sometimes, while answering emails and trying not to get bits of tuna salad all over my keyboard, I’d look down at my tupperware-strewn workspace, and the bag of vending machine peanut m&m’s I was saving for dessert, and be like, “Damn, this is bleak.” And now there’s a Tumblr, Sad Desk Lunch, to document this fine tradition:

Sad Desk Lunch isn’t about how great your lunch is. And it’s not about how crappy your lunch is either. It’s about the fact you eat your lunch at your desk during your lunch break where you could roam free. Step outside. Breathe a little. Americans have a tendency never to take their lunch break and sit around, munch on their sandwich at their desk.

After the jump, check out a few more Sad Desk Lunches, including a creative use for a Keurig machine. So depressing. So familiar. Oh, and you can submit your own SDL photos here. May God have mercy on your cold leftovers. Keep reading »

Frisky Q&A: Nick Verreos From “Project Runway Under The Gun” Wants Your Boyfriend To Wear Makeup

frisky-qanda-nick-verreos

Once upon a time long ago in a land far away … well, okay, it was 2005 on Bravo … there was the world’s most friendly and energetic designer, Nick Verreos. Although he was eliminated on episode 10 (boo), his involvement on the show shot his line,  Nikolaki, co-designed with his partner David Paul, to stardom and now Katy Perry, Eva Longoria and Beyoncé  are all fans. It also made him a regular presence on fashion red carpets and a regular guest on the TV Guide Network’s “Fashion Wrap.”

Verreos hasn’t strayed far from “Project Runway,” though: this year, he joined the cast of  ”Under The Gunn,” a “Project Runway” off-shoot hosted by the one and only Tim Gunn. The show brought Verreos, and other alums Mondo Guerra and Anya Ayoung-Chee, to mentor and coach teams comprised of 15 designers. Not surprisingly, Verreos was the winning mentor.

Part of the “Under The Gunn” final prize was to work with Benefit Cosmetics to create new uniforms for their in-store staff members. On Monday, Verreos and winner Oscar Garcia-Lopez hit up a Benefit store in SoHo to show off the brand’s adorable new apron (Sophie and I are wearing them above with Nick and Oscar!), kvell about his love for their products, and give his endorsement for the makeup-for-men trend.

Fashion Math: Sweatshirts + Midi Skirts

Leave it to Chloe Grace Moretz to combine two of my favorite current trends – a fitted sweatshirt and a full midi skirt – into one fabulous outfit. Mixing a sporty top with a girly bottom keeps the look from being too casual or too precious, and has that much ballyhooed “effortless” vibe. Naturally, I went buck wild pairing both graphic and simple sweatshirts with a variety of retro-shaped midi skirts in this first edition of Fashion Math! Click on for some seriously cool combos…
