I am a big fan of “alone time” and “space,” which is one of the many reasons I will not be buying a pair of Fundies underwear anytime soon. Some things in life were indeed built for two: See-saws, cats cradle, thumb war, patty cake, etc. Underwear, not so much. Perhaps I am just a square or closed-minded, but I am an only child and I was never good at sharing. From a style point of view, Fundies are not horrific. Boring, yes, but I am not going to avert my eyes in disgust. That being said, I don’t think Fundies were created or are bought for style reasons. Oh yes, this product is meant to live in kinky-ville. Not that Fundies look particularly sexy-time to me, but maybe that’s just because I am imagining the logistical difficulties of two people trying to get into these. I doubt the packaging says this, but it should contain a warning for the uncoordinated. All joking aside, I recommend buying these. Not only are they dirt cheap, but it’s always good to have a gag gift or two around the house. I also feel like promoting this classic if only because it has been around for decades and has had the same packaging for over 20 years. To survive so long in the ever changing fashion world, that earns my respect. [$9.99, Fundies, ShopInPrivate.com} Keep reading »
I remember shopping in Kids ‘R Us (well, not exactly shopping, it was more trailing behind Mom while she picked out clothes and held them up to my and my sister’s little bodies for an instant size comparison) and wondering what those signs were for their “Layaway Plan.” Once upon another desperate time, layaway programs rose to popularity during the Great Depression and became a common form of payment for people who couldn’t afford to pay the dolla-dolla bills for stuff upfront. Now, for obvious reasons, layaway is making a big-time comeback. Unlike credit cards, programs charge no interest and require no credit history, but customers can’t take their items home until they’ve paid in full. Most plans charge a small fee, usually around $5, and require customers to pay within a limited time period. Intrigued? Stores like TJ Maxx, Marshall’s, Kmart and Burlington Coat Factory are offering the option to pay-to-buy—your credit card will thank you.
And online layaway programs are even more rad—you can pay-until-you-get-it on iPods, LCD Sharp TVs, GE refrigerators, almost anything at elayaway.com. Keep reading »
Late Night TV has been going through some serious shake ups. Leno is officially dunzo and this month, Conan and Jimmy Fallon launched their new talk shows. So, now that we’ve had a chance to sample the goods, who do we really want to take to bed with us? Find out in this round of Shun, Shag or Marry!
Ok, first things first we have to narrow down the Late Night pool a bit. Although we’d normally love to shun any dude who hosted “The Man Show,” after watching Jimmy Kimmel whimper on “The View” after his recent break up from Sarah Silverman , we just can’t kick a man when he’s down. Carson Daly just had a kid, new dad’s also not fair game. And let’s not even go there with grumpy grandpa Dave Letterman. So, that leave us with: Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Fallon, and Craig Ferguson!

Ever since the return of Zack Morris on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” the “Saved by the Bell” reminiscing hasn’t stopped. Bayside was a factory of ’90s fashion, and may be the only place where denim-on-denim will ever remain respected (sort of). With her neon scrunchies and flowered denim outfits, it-girl Kelly Kapowski influenced a generation of young girls. You can still get her hot look, which, if you’re lucky, might land you your own Zack (swoon!).
- Mixing florals with a graphic design gives off that funky flair. [$17.99, Charlotte Russe]
- This denim vest is slightly OTT, so rock it with Kapowski confidence. [$248, William Rast, RevolveClothing.com]
- These flower-print sneaks are scarily close to the ones we wore in ’92. [$20, Cabbage Rose, Urban Outfitters]
- Kelly lived in denim minis. Easy to see why when one like this would show off your hot legs. [$19.80, Forever 21]

Inspired by a friend’s shiny new pair of Jeffrey Campbell stacked heels in the most refreshing shade of mint, I got to thinking. Who says pastels are only suited for your Easter basket? We tend to associate pastels like eggy yellows and dainty pinks with the early springtime, but what’s more summery than a bowl of mint ice cream or a cloudless blue sky or the aqua tint of the ocean on a perfect day at the beach? Creamy cool tones are about as fresh as colors come and are the perfect calming, crisp alternative to obnoxious 90s neons. The stars predict warm weather ahead, so surrender to the the summer spirit and get your hands on some cool-toned pastels! For example, Leos can swap their trusty LBD for a more daring satiny spearmint number and Libras will ditch their old wayfarers for a fun pair of lavender-hued frames. Check the slideshow and see if your sign is destined to don lilac, aqua, or mint! Keep reading »
David Carradine’s bizarre death has left us all wondering, WTF? A final photo showed he was found possibly in a similar situation to late INXS singer, Michael Hutchence— left hanging with hard on. Both are suspected of dying from a kinky kind of fetish called erotic asphyxiation. But what does that mean exactly? And can you live to tell the tale?

Do you swear to tell the truth, avoid neon colors, and not wear sunglasses as headbands, so help you God? In a courthouse, there is a legal oath as well as a fashion oath. Few people would repeat [Michael Jackson’s pajama-clad court appearance faux pas, but many overlook the less obvious style no-no’s in a courtroom. Whether you’re in the jury box, testifying, or, heaven forbid, the defendant, there are certain rules everyone should follow in front of the (fashion) judge. Keep reading »
Elizabeth Taylor has gotten a bum rap, what with her eight marriages to seven husbands and all. Is she the only person to repeatedly go to the altar? Certainly not. Nor are women — Liz and Zsa Zsa Gabor included — the only sex to say “I do,” “I do,” “I do,” etc. Click through for some of the repeat husbands from Hollywood past and present.
