Rihanna went out last night wearing a long cardigan as a dress. We can’t decide whether this is a good idea. Sweaters aren’t normally long enough to cover our butts, but maybe in the winter, when tights can provide extra coverage. [NYC, 6/10/09] Keep reading »
How much do you really need to know?
I still remember the day I walked into my house only to be confronted by my entire family staring at me like I was an alien as my mother shrieked through her tears, “Thank god you’re home—I thought you were dead!!!”
Um, what? Keep reading »
This bag was made for walking. Voilà the heel-bag by Azumi & David. The question is, what shoes do you wear? How are they supposed to compete with that? [High Snobette] Keep reading »
Most of the time, I love being an adult. I can decide when to go to bed (or not), eat an entire package of Sour Patch Kids at the movie theater before dinner, and wear skirts of questionable length. But, every now and then, I wish I were a kid again. Not for the lack of responsibilities or months-long summer vacations, but for the clothes. Today, Stella McCartney announced she’s launching a collection for GapKids and babyGap later this year. If only I could shrink down a bit, I could sport Stella’s designs for less than a gazillion dollars! Here’s what else rocks about shopping in the kids department. Keep reading »
I usually find the “MAKE” editions of GOOP, Gwyneth Paltrow’s newsletter that attempts to “nourish the inner aspect,” the most tolerable. They’re recipes and how offensive and annoying can food really be? This week, Gwyneth introduces us to the cookie and treat recipes from some of her friends, including Evi, a Holocaust survivor, and Katie Lee Joel. Of the latter, Gwyneth writes:
“The summer before last, a mutual friend brought the lovely Katie Lee Joel and her husband William over for dinner. Much to my delight, she brought a fresh batch of these cookies with her.”
Wait. Hold up. “Her husband William?” Don’t you mean Billy? As in, BILLY JOEL? Is this Gwyneth’s attempt at not namedropping? Because that would be effing stupid, considering GOOP is one big celebrity snog fest. Seriously, what a pretentious twat.
Oh also, big old error in the last bit of this week’s newsletter. See above — guess someone forget to include the copy for next week’s preview, and Gwyneth, ever the diligent editor, didn’t notice it was missing either. Oopsies! What will William and his lovely wife Katherine say? [GOOP] Keep reading »
Last night I watched Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married?” for the first time. (I know, I’m a little late, but I didn’t want to get hit over the head with religious talk, as Perry is known for.) It was an entertaining movie, but what really stuck out to me was the theory of the “80/20 Rule,” which I had never heard of. The rule says that men can have a wife or girlfriend who fulfills 80 percent of his needs, but he’ll go looking for someone else to make up the remaining 20 percent. He’ll leave the woman who takes care of him because the chick on the side is more exciting, sexual, and basically new. But soon after, the man will realize the 20 percent he has now pales in comparison to the 80 percent he already had. In a quest to have 100 percent of his needs fulfilled, he ends up with less than when he started. This kind of reminds me of the idea that twentysomethings are too narcissistic to find a mate — supposedly, we want all or nothing in a mate. Do you think there’s any validity to the 80/20 Rule? And does it apply to women too? Keep reading »
Want to enjoy one night out without terrible pick-up lines, “accidental” groping, and lame dudes? Now, Mstaken.com sells an engagement ring (for $50) to avoid unwanted clingers. As the site instructs, “Slip on the ring—a little bright lie that says you’re married to the man of your dreams (whenever he gets here). When the coast is clear, stash your secret weapon in your keychain. Next time an unwanted suitor lurks near, tap your inner vixen and remember: you’re Ms. Taken!” One teensy problem? According to the guys at the blog Bar Stool Sports, wearing ring bling may actually encourage the unwanted suitors to pursue even more! Ah, the creme de la scum. Maybe Mstaken.com should sell pregnant body suits instead. [Bar Stool Sports]
