Jezebel peeked at Perez Hilton‘s new site for 20-something women and screen-grabbed the hell out of it. The not-yet-launched site is called CocoPerez.com, and it’s for women who like their news with ejaculate dribbles scribbled on it! Keep reading »
When word got out about Jil Sander‘s collaboration with Uniqlo, we were excited. The designer, who was first known for her chic office wear for women and then for her edgy minimalist creations, ranks high in sophistication. However, the first few images of +J, her line for the Japanese retailer, are disappointing. Meant to be “classic basics,” the pieces come off as bland and boring. There’s little to covet in this collection of button-downs, sweaters, coats, and pants. The only item that retains a touch of Jil Sander’s contemporary aesthetic is a short, brown waistcoat with a Mandarin collar.
Due out in the fall, +J includes over 100 pieces — so let’s hope the rest of the collection has more flavor. More images after the jump. [Grazia] Keep reading »
Woe betide the sexual being who has a kinky fetish but doesn’t have internet access. You could waste years of your life—decades, even!—fretting that you’re the only sick f*** who likes her wrists handcuffed to the bedposts during sex. But with a few clicks of the mouse, anyone can get the lowdown via internet porn: Other chicks like to be restrained during sex, too! Lots and lots of chicks, actually. You’re pretty normal, girlie. In fact, you’re almost boring. All this is thanks to the 21st-century technology revolution, which isn’t only great for curious adults, but curious teens, as well. Make that really curious teens.

You can never have enough canvas totes. They’re great for trips to the beach and walks around town, and they’re sturdy enough to hold loads of books. In honor of the upcoming Tim Burton remake of “Alice in Wonderland,” why not make your next canvas tote this Alice-inspired one? You can’t beat the price, and the graphic is pretty cute, too. Stop schlepping things around in old shopping bags. Invest in a little canvas! You’ll save a heck of a lot of paper and plastic at the grocery store – and who doesn’t want to save the environment?

Has anything changed for women since the 1880s? We’re still stuffing ourselves into too-small clothes like skinny jeans and wreaking havoc on our feet with dangerously steep platform shoes. But that’s nothing in comparison to what our foremothers went through to look good — or stay incredibly thin). “Suffer for Beauty,” an exhibition at the White River Valley Museum in Auburn, Washington, offers a historical look at how ladies have subjected themselves to fashionable torture.

How excited are we over this news? Loeffler Randall, the hip New York label with killer shoes and handbags, has finally launched an e-commerce site. Shoppers who purchase Loeffler Randall’s signature booties, slouchy bags and drapedleather jackets on-line can look forward to a classy touch: a hand written thank you note. The site also offers colors and fabrics which are exclusive to the on-line store.They’ve added another element to distinguish it from other e-commerce sites out there: a portion of proceeds will go to Living India, a charity which helps children living with H.I.V/A.I.D.S in Southern India. Just be warned, this stuff is not cheap: classic pieces like the Satin Over-sized Blazer will set you back $575, while the popular Marti Flat boot costs, $895. But, trust us, some splurges are well worth it! [ Fashion Week Daily]

Some men skip from relationship to relationship, never once staying single, because they always have a girl waiting in the wings. We tend to hate these guys, but it might be our fault they exist. Social psychologists at Oklahoma State University published a report in the current issue of Journal of Experimental Social Psychology on “mate poaching.” Participants in their study were shown the same picture of a moderately attractive male or female, depending on their gender, and some were told the person was in a relationship. Then, participants indicated how interested they’d be in pursuing a relationship with the person in the photo. Keep reading »
What makes you swoon? I once swooned on a walk across a bridge in Central Park when my now-husband pointed to something below, and I looked down and saw the words “Wendy, will you marry me?” When I turned back around, he was down on a knee, holding my great-grandmother’s engagement ring. Swoon! I swoon when he brings home flowers for no reason at all, when he tells me I look lovely, and when I see how great he is with his niece and nephew. I wouldn’t swoon, however, if my man happened to “grasp my hand” when a beautiful, scantily-clad woman walked past us. Would you? Men’s Health seems to think this bizarre-o action is the key to a woman’s heart, seeing as they’ve included it in their list of 41 Ways To Make A Woman Swoon. In fact, almost the entire list seems to suggest that we women are insecure, needy, child-like creatures. After the jump, check out some of the other sad, sexist, and just plain odd ways they suggest making us swoon, and why they’re ridiculous. Keep reading »
We think it’s ultra-adorable that Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Jerry Ferrara (come on, Turtle from “Entourage,” people) fell in lovesies when she guest-starred as his character’s girlfriend on “Entourage” last season. It’s even more adorable that she’s returned to the show this season, and they’re still head-over-heels. So, we were none too pleased when we caught wind of this interview Sigler did with “The Quick Fix.” (Watch it here.) The interviewer had no idea that Sigler and Ferrara were an off-screen couple, and one of his first questions out of the gate was, “In real life, do you think beautiful women would date fat dudes?” Awkward alert!
