He’s the perfect height. He has perfect hands. You love his sister. You love his scent. How can you be with someone who doesn’t know how to play the tuba? Or speak French? He is perfect and everything about him is perfect by association. The problem is he doesn’t want to be with you. And now you’re never going to find love again. Right? Wrong. Here is what you need to remember: Keep reading »
You must, must, must check out P.S.—I Made This…. Like, now. Stop reading and click on over. OK, so what it is: a new DIY website that gets you thinking of everyday things in different ways. Oh, and the DIY projects are seriously chic. These ain’t the frumpy how-tos that you sometimes see. Plus, bonus points, they also run little inspiration boards and photos of the process/materials needed (check out one above). And who doesn’t love a good inspiration board? Seriously, head on over there. [P.S.—I Made This...] Keep reading »
Watching a scary movie on Halloween is so lame. Instead, you should go out and mingle with the undead, ghosts, and ghouls as you get scared half to death at a haunted attraction. Today’s haunted houses, ships, mortuaries, and hayrides are nothing like the cheesy attractions at carnivals you might remember from your childhood. Nowadays, haunted attractions have benefited from the live talent that has left Hollywood as computers take their roles in horror movies. And they’ve also gone more high-tech with animatronics and movie-quality sets and sounds. [Reuters]
Find a haunted attraction in your area after the jump. Keep reading »
If we see one more girl who’s half-naked, boobs pushed up to her chin, someone’s gonna get cut. What happened to leaving a little to the imagination? When did people start thinking it’s cute to traipse out of the house with half your butt cheek hanging out of a skirt and enough exposed chest to easily allow for an at-club mammogram? I may sound like your grandma, but I stand by my argument that most girls try way too hard to be sexy and just end up looking boring old slutty. We’ve got a few outfit suggestions for your next night out to help you avoid that Tired Old Skank look.
Say hello to Blank, a Japanese import. I’m so into these accessories I found while browsing the “new” section at PixieMarket.com, that I’m literally drawing a blank. Except for maybe an internal dialogue that goes like this: Cute. Cute! Cuuuuuuute. Loving the non-traditional prints of soldiers and dinosaurs on tights, another dinosaur design on an umbrella that makes it look like a piece of vintage china, and a blue and white scarf featuring Greco-Roman motifs. Also available is the Batwing dress, a roomy black tunic, and a leather brooch in the shape of a blue ribbon prize. Freaking. Out. [PixieMarket.com] Keep reading »

Hold on to your Forever 21 tube tops and Kanye glasses, people—MTV has a new reality drama. Called “Styl’d,” it follows the lives of five fashion assistants at MMA (Who? Yeah, some agency we’ve never heard of either). Half docu-drama, half competition for a contract with the company, the show covers the oh-so difficult life of being a stylist. From the trailer alone, it looks tough. They fall in pools! They have to lug racks of clothes up canyon trails! They sleep with each other! (Apparently, there is such a thing as a straight guy stylist.)
“Styl’d” has all the makings of a one-season flop, but you never know. Seeing what’s happened to other MTV alums, this might be the next crop of your fave reality star/designers/singers/scandal makers.
“Styl’d” premieres Sunday, Nov. 1 at 10 p.m. Will you watch? [MTV] Keep reading »
“I hate celebrities. All those pointless girls — I won’t name names, but you know who I mean. They are ‘famous.’ Ridiculous. I like women with style: actresses like Uma Thurman, icons like Audrey Hepburn. I like women with style to wear my shoes.”
—Shoe designer Manolo Blahnik on certain “celebrities.” He may not be willing to name names, but we are. Cough, LindsayParisJessica, cough. [Vogue UK] Keep reading »
