Do Not Want: Hoofin’ It Edition

Most little girls go through a pony phase at some point. They’re majestic and enchanting creatures, and blah blah blah childhood princess fantasies. But there is a very wide berth between loving horses and wanting to be one. These hoof heels are made of carbon fiber and feature around 5,000 individual horse hairs, for the horse hair purists among us. Thankfully these hooves do have a point — proceeds from the sale of the heels, which cost around $2,500 a pair, will go to charity. [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »

Holy thought police, bat girl! Police in Iowa arrested a pregnant woman in her second trimester last month for telling a nurse she’d been thinking about having an abortion. While in the hospital after falling down a flight of stairs, Christine Taylor, 22, told a nurse about her employment and marital woes; Christine also said she’d considered both abortion and adoption before deciding to carry her pregnancy to full-term. The nurse then got suspicious that Christine had been trying to self-abort by throwing herself down the stairs — Christine was arrested under Iowa’s feticide laws, and the poor woman spent two days in jail.

Style 911: “I’ve Lost Weight And Now Nothing Fits!”

style911 030811 m jpg

In the last couple of months, I’ve lost about 15 pounds (on purpose). I’ve lost enough that my clothes are big on me, but not so big to justify buying a whole new wardrobe. Any suggestions for how I can make my wardrobe more skinny-friendly without spending too much? I’m finding that most of my jeans are baggy and my shirts look big and blousey, not showing off my figure the way I want to. I’ve always loved my legs, but now I have a new, flatter stomach, too. Are there some new pieces I should buy? Any other tricks?– Andrea

First off, it’s a smart decision to work with what you’ve already got! People often feel the need to run out and buy a whole new collection of clothes when they lose weight, but there are simple things you can do with your clothes to save yourself money and closet space. One suggestion — take some of your most expensive and most-beloved pieces and get them tailored. There’s no reason to get rid of those $150 jeans — a good tailor can get them taken in at the waist for way less than what it would cost to buy a new pair. You can also keep some of your favorite items by employing some slimming accessories — like wide, cinching belts and fitted blazers or cropped jackets. We also recommend that you buy at least a couple of pieces you love that highlight your favorite parts of your new body. If you like your smaller waist, for instance, purchase a figure-flattering party dress. After the jump, some of our favorite new-body options.

Diane Von Furstenberg Hates “The Real Housewives”

“You know what I don’t like right now about women in America? I don’t like when they are objectified in ‘The Housewives of Miami‘ and ‘The Housewives of’ … you know? What I resent is when women are objectified. … I just want every woman to know that they can realize their potential — but their potential is not necessarily fake tits.”

Diane von Furstenberg wants you to reach for the stars, ladies. You too can marry a Belgian prince and design a crazy popular wrap dress and then marry a possibly-gay billionaire. Think big! [NYMag.com] Keep reading »

You know there’s a problem when … your toddler needs to be treated for alcohol addiction and alcohol abuse. The UK’s National Health Service reports that the youngest patient they’ve treated for alcohol addiction was three years old. They are not releasing any further info on the patient’s identity to protect his or her confidentiality. This is not a typo. They didn’t mean to say 13-year-old. How do you even discover such a thing? Mommy and daddy caught little Jane sneaking vodka into her daily apple juice sippy cup? Someone please explain to me how a three-year-old can be an alcoholic. My brain can’t comprehend. [Google News] Keep reading »

My Top 5 “Lucky” Experiences

Thursday is St. Patrick’s Day and it’s got me thinking about the concept of luck. It’s a strange one. What does it mean to be lucky, to have bad luck or good luck? Is luck completely out of our hands or does luck just present us with opportunities that we can either take advantage of or not? I think I believe luck to most often be the latter (though there are certainly cases where the former applies); good or bad fortune rears its head and it’s up to the individual to make the most of it. I feel like I’ve lived a very lucky life, one I’m grateful for and have tried to make the most of. But there have been a few experiences in this life of mine that stick out as particularly lucky. Read about them after the jump, and then share your lucky experiences in the comments! Keep reading »
