My older brother is getting married to a girl I legitimately like. I’m happy for them. Really, I am. Keep that in mind as I make the following statement: Their wedding and all the surrounding events make me want to hurl. It’s not so much the constant “So what about you? Is there a boyfriend?” questioning I’ve come to expect from family, our friends and people I’ve not seen since I was maybe two feet tall. It’s the dresses. Cocktail dresses for the busty and hippy are a difficult thing to come by. Usually, it’s a shapeless mess of a tent dress or a slutty problem of a form-fitting one.
You, however, can learn from my years of double-D drama. Use these tips to find a happy medium that you’re not quite literally busting out of. Keep reading »
First there was the Succu Dry, a sex toy for men with a fanged orifice; and then today we introduced you to a vibrating ring that dudes can masturbate with on the go. Clearly, sex toy production is on the rise. But the most common place a dude might encounter one is with the lady he’s lovin’. So how do guys actually feel when a gal breaks out her vibrator? How often are they down for the extra help? And would they ever try a sex toy on themselves? An array of answers, after the jump… Keep reading »
Christ on a cracker, we don’t think we’ve seen more perfect hair ever. Some paparazzi yelled, “Hey Charlize, over here!” at the recent Hollywood Film Festival Awards, she snapped her head back, and boom, somebody could put this pic on a magazine cover. To get this look, you’ll need some seriously good genes, a killer set of baby blond highlights, and a conditioning treatment to make it look extra glossy and silky. Ask the colorist to use a balayage technique (that’s when they paint the highlights in) to get it looking extra natural and sun-kissed. If you’re just interested in the style, blow-dry, create an extra-deep side part, sweep to the side, and coat ends with just a dab of L’Oreal Studio Line Curl Smoothing Cream. Use a small-barrel curling iron to create individual curls, then use your fingers to separate them so they look wavy. God help you. [L.A., 10/26/09] Keep reading »

Evidently, there is a Spanish mugger who doesn’t have proper respect for the wrap dress. While she was enjoying a day of museum-hopping in Madrid, Diane von Furstenberg got mugged. “I just got robbed in the street in front of the Thyssen museum … My wallet, cash and all my credit cards!!” she tweeted. “I am totally fine !! I hope it the worst thing that will happen to me.” At least he didn’t take her phone. Where are the fashion police when you need them? [NY Post] Keep reading »

But that’s not all! There’s also the Beauty Bottom Cushion, which will make your butt “taut enough to bounce a 100 yen coin off of.” So would this mean you could literally sit on your ass all day and get some benefit from it?

Last year, when the Phillies won the World Series, I cheered myself hoarse, posed with a police officer for a triumphant picture, and called my mother from the happily delirious mob I joined, beer in hand, to march down Broad Street. It was amazing — I have the Facebook pictures to prove it. And, I easily could have missed it. High school me would have rolled her eyes, channeled “Juno”-level snark, and stayed inside. Here’s how I learned to love the ball game, plus a guide for non-believers. Keep reading »
Not everyone enjoys dressing in costume for Halloween, but that doesn’t you need to be a total Debbie Downer and wear your normal clothes on Saturday, either. Jewelry of the spider, bat, or vampire varieties is the easiest way to acknowledge it’s Oct. 31 without donning a full-on costume.
If you’d like to take things up a notch without putting on a “sexy fill-in-the-blank” outfit, go for these spider knee highs. They’d look great — elegant even — with a simple black dress. And unless your skirt is lady-of-the-night short, only your suitor, perhaps dressed as Prince Charming, will be privy to the spiders’ webs at the top of the socks.
