Since we won’t get to see Jason Schwartzman in his upcoming film “Fantastic Mr. Fox” (due to it being animated and all), we’re very pleased the actor is featured in the look book for Band of Outsiders‘ fall 2009 collection. (The label’s designer, Scott Sternberg, has also used our girl crushes, including Michelle Williams and Marisa Tomei, to show off his women’s collection, Boy by Band of Outsiders.) The distinctive, dreamy look of the Polaroid images make us want to Poladroid all our photos from this summer so our lives will look equally cool. The only thing that would make this better is if Jason were holding our hand, rather than this mannequin’s. Check out two more photos from the look book after the jump.

In the dating world especially, first impressions are lasting ones. So it’s always rough when you thought you wooed a dude and he never calls you again. Sigh. Luckily, this week, one of our Frisky gentlemen clued us in to the 10 Reasons He Didn’t Ask You Out On A Second Date. Eye opening, am I right, ladies?! While cell phone shenanigans, a lack of physical attraction, talking too much about yourself, and blatant pre-date lies definitely apply to both genders, there are some specific reasons for why a gal won’t give a guy the time of day again. Here are some reasons why she isn’t going to come back for round two. Keep reading »
I know what you’re thinking: there’s nothing funny about about abortion! Mostly, I agree with you. Politicians who make decisions about what women can do with their bodies and wackjobs who try to kill abortion providers are scary.
A very not safe for work clip of Chris Rock on abortion, and further unpacking the notion that there is something funny about abortion, after the jump:

The Degrassi hotties huddled together at the red carpet premiere of their new flick, “Paradise City: Degrassi Goes Hollywood.” Fingers crossed the movie is as action packed with pubescent problems as the tv show. But whatever it takes, I know I can make it through! [Toronto, 8/26/09] Keep reading »
I’ve never understood the appeal of roughing it. Communing with nature can be fun for some, but I prefer a concrete jungle any day. Modern amenities like hot showers and flushing toilets are necessities to me, not luxuries. But pretty soon I might be singing a different tune because, apparently, “glamping” is on the rise. Glamorous camping sites make roughing it a little more palatable because most of the comforts of home are available in the outdoors, making camping an upscale vacation option. Most glamping establishments currently cater to a very upscale clientele, according to The Wall Street Journal, but you can turn a normal campsite into a glamping paradise with our suggestions after the jump. And for more info on everything glamping, check out GlampingGirl.com. Keep reading »
Last weekend, while some of my friends were off on weekend trips to grand places like the Poconos and St. Louis, I was in the place you can generally find me: home. But, thanks to a little planning, I felt like I had traveled hundreds of miles away from my apartment and had a relaxing, indulgent two days.
Staycations have gotten a lot of hype lately since people have less money to spend on actual trips out of town, but I didn’t believe it was actually possible to have a vacation-like time while remaining in the city I call home. I proved myself wrong. After the jump, the five things I learned about going on a staycation. Keep reading »
Here’s a nonsensical one for you. On Tuesday, three women were supposedly bounced from a Britney Spears concert for … wait for it … dancing “too provocatively.” The girls say they were ganked from their seats by security after someone complained about their moves during the song “Get Naked,” causing the girls to miss three songs. I doubt a few girls in a row of seats could do anywhere near as much damage as scantily clad Brit Brit was likely doing on stage. All I have to say is, “Pot. Meet kettle.” [NY Post] Keep reading »
