Yikes! With less than six months to go, the end of the decade is rapidly approaching. This past decade has seen many fashion improvements since the 90′s. Give yourself a pat on the back. Now it’s time to get to work. We have less than six months to eradicate some of the more embarrassing trends from the past years. Banning dark lipstick, heavy foundation and the anchor woman haircut were impressive achievements, but not nearly enough to forgive all our other fashion sins. Here is a list of styles and trends that must be destroyed as soon as possible. If we stop wearing these items now, history may forget that they ever existed, or may at least look kindly at the fact that we recognized the error of our fashion ways and attempted to repent before it was too late.

Funny how “cavemen” get all the glory while you almost never hear about “cave women.” But after 25,000 years, it’s becoming clear that the ladies who (maybe?) wore animal skins and dwelled in caves had a bigger part in prehistoric artwork than was previously thought. Professor Dean Snow from Pennsylvania State University has studied and analyzed the proportions of hand stencils in French and Spanish caves, and he believes that while the larger prints are clearly male hands, the smaller ones belonged to adult women. Using digit ratios and proportions to compare prehistoric hand outlines with the size of their ancestors’ hands today, Snow claims that the combination of a long index finger and a short pinky indicates that women were up in the caves painting right alongside the men. So give the cave ladies some love. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

A couple months ago I posted a letter to my younger self, to which many of you responded with letters to your own younger selves in the comment section. Turns out, we had a lot to say to our mini-me’s — from dating advice to style tips, we’ve learned a lot since the days we donned jelly shoes and spent weekends cruising the mall (or should I say we’ve learned a lot since the first time we donned jelly shoes and spent weekends cruising the mall?). I combed through the letters to our younger selves for the best lessons learned and wisdom gained. After the jump, 15 tips for the young women behind us. Keep reading »
Know what 54-year-old designer Donna Karan loves? “Music, DJin’, dancing, partys going out!” She’s also a fan of “just having a laugh and having it easy no worries!” Or so says the most recent issue of Women’s Wear Daily parody WWWD.
In their Man Issue, released this week, WWWD delves into deep issues ranging from the size of Shia LaBeouf’s package (“beyond inadequate,” for the record), to whether or not rappers Pharell Williams and Kanye West are super into each other in the biblical sense. It’s questions like these, my friends, that need answering as the financial markets crash around us and the recent loss of your job forces you to trade in your apartment for an abandoned refrigerator box, stealing a wireless signal just to get access to The Frisky.
Check out the issue here and a few more of our highlights after the jump. Keep reading »
Most guy gamers have dreamed of getting with one of the scantily-clad female characters, whether it’s Princess Zelda, Chung Li, or Bloodrayne. Now their fantasies have been answered. The burlesque group Devil’s Playground performs a show featuring these characters and others doing “things ‘suggestive’ doesn’t begin to describe,” according to Gossip Gamers.

If only they had Cole from “Infamous”, Commander Shepard from “Mass Effect,” and Alex Mercer from “Prototype” in a male revue, the straight ladies and gay men would be set, too! Keep reading »
