Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
The northeast got another dumping of snow last night, making this the snowiest January on record for NYC. Spring, dammit, won’t you hurry up!? Okay, so I probably need to learn to be more patient, but I just can’t wait to toss my puffy coat and snow boots back into my closet and start dressing for warmer temperatures. If the Club Monaco Spring 2011 lookbook is to be believed, there are so many fun spring trends to look forward to! Keep clicking to see the 10 I’m most psyched about… [via FabSugar]
I have a weakness for H&M. But going to the store can be pure hell between the crowds, the thumping music, and the epic fitting room lines. So I’ve always been annoyed that the retailer hasn’t offered online shopping for U.S. costumers—I mean, they have it in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Holland, Norway, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. Well, now Americans are being invited to the party. The company tweeted earlier today, “Good morning is an understatement! H&M has decided to have online shopping in the U.S. at the turn of the year 2011/2012.” Nice. Here’s hoping two of our other favorites—Zara and Club Monaco (who sells a few pieces through Shopbop.com)—get the memo and start allowing us to online shop soon. [Refinery 29] Keep reading »
The Good: Tim McGraw was pretty darn convincing as the husband/manager of alcoholic country singer Kelly Canter in “Country Strong.” Though I have to ask: why cast Tim in a movie about country music and not have him sing so much as a single bar? But perhaps the most classic performance by a country star in a movie of all time? Dolly Parton in “Nine to Five.” Pure genius.
The Bad: Reba McEntire in “The Gambler Returns: The Luck of the Draw,” though admittedly I did kind of enjoy her TV series. And Taylor Swift did not impress in the cheesy “Valentine’s Day.” Back to the studio, young one.
Lesson Carrie Should Take: Keep things wholesome, and your audience will love it. I’m thinking her choice of a church youth group leader role is right on target.
Just the other day, I learned more about the unusual sexual practice, agalmatophilia, otherwise known as mannequin love. Then lo and behold, I got to see it in action on this week’s episode of “My Strange Addiction.” Thirty-seven-year-old Davecat let the world see his relationship with his synthetic wife, Sidore. They enjoy having sex and doing erotic photo shoots together. And she never disagrees with him. The therapist gives his astute analysis — Davecat is lonely. Ya think? Oh, and there’s also a severe scab picker featured on the episode. This series just keeps getting more and more enthralling. [ONTD] Keep reading »
