Balenciaga Vs. YSL? Two Similar Pairs Face Off

Here’s a look at one of the accessories from Balenciaga’s highly-anticipated Fall 2009 collection, a super sexy pump that features a cagey, mesh detail and bow tie closure. Yet something about it is strangely (or not?) reminiscent of YSL’s hugely popular cage strappy sandals. Both have a similar structure and feature ribbons around the ankles. Is it just us, or do you see the similarities, too? And if so, is it okay for another designer to steal draw inspiration from another? You tell me.

Flutter Away With Butterfly Prints For Summer!

They call it the “butterfly effect”– the theory that a butterfly can flap its wings in Chile to create a windstorm in Central Park (not to be taken literally, of course). Regardless of the power the butterfly’s wings have, it’s obvious that they’re a trend to watch out for! Names like Diane von Furstenberg and Juicy Couture have embraced the butterfly, so it’s no wonder these beautiful creatures have translated well into clothing and accessories. Consider it a happy medium between ultra-feminine floral prints and sultry animal prints. You can go small and subtle with a butterfly print scarf or go big with a skirt that looks like butterflies are resting on top! Remember, with all printed apparel, it’s best to keep accessories simple. This summer, stand out from the crowd of floral prints and reach for the butterflies instead! Take a look at the slideshow for a selection of butterfly prints. Keep reading »

Is It True Men Just Want Sex?

A lot of women are conditioned to believe that all men want women for is Sex. Men are the enemy, as they only have one thing on their mind. They want to abuse you and use you, and when they get what they came for, they’ll leave. This is not true, well not completely.

It is true that men have an instinct and inborn desire for sex, as women have an instinct to have children, just like the primates who came before us.

It is true that women can manipulate men to want to be in a relationship with them by using sex as a tool. Continue reading

Quiz: Did Marcia And Jan Have A Lesbian Affair?! And Other Juicy Brady Rumors.

“Here’s the story of a lovely lady…who joked about having a lesbian affair with her TV sister.” Fine, that just doesn’t have the same ring to it, but it is true. Maureen McCormick revealed in her blog this week that the affair she claimed to have had with on-screen sister Jan was a joke she made years ago for kicks and shock value. Coincidentally, Maureen made the joke right before her autobiography Here’s The Story hit shelves—just in time for Brady fanatics to rush out and buy it, hoping to read about the sisters’ sapphic love. While the book actually is chock full of sex and drugs, sadly none of Marcia’s naughty escapades involved Eve Plumb, aka Jan. Well, Marcia, Marcia, Marcia. After the jump, it’s time to separate the Brady fact from the Brady fiction. [NY Post]

Looking deeper into the Brady history beyond the Bunch, turns out America’s pristine squeaky-clean family embroiled themselves in enough scandals to flatten Alice’s highly-hair sprayed coif including a roaring incest fest. Holy cow!

I’m slapping the Marsha-Jan Bang as pure FICTION. But are you schooled enough in all things Brady to uncover the truth behind the Bunch’s craziest shenanigans? Test yourself after the jump in The Brady Bunch Bonanza– FACT or FICTION? Keep reading »

What It’s Like To Be Single Around The World

After thinking a lot about that crazy singles map of the US and how all the ladies on the East Coast are screwed, I got back to my navel gazing about what it means to be single. (I have plenty time alone to think about these things.) I moved on from my bubble of self-absorption (played out) and started wondering what it must be like to be single in other countries—not that I’m thinking of fleeing or anything. Is it better in France where fidelity is not a cultural moray? Is it worse in India with the caste system and arranged marriages? And what are those cold singles in Iceland doing to stay warm? Well wonder no more, because Liz Tuccillo (Mrs. “She’s Not That Into You” and former “Sex and the City” writer) is travlling the globe to demystify singlehood in an awesome web series called, “How to be Single.” Um…amazing! After the jump, a few of my fave revelations from single sisters around the world. [Your Tango] Keep reading »

Casting The Michael Jackson Movie

A biopic about Michael Jackson is a Hollywood must. The potential film has A-list and Oscar written all over it. The story of the pop icon is full of highs, lows, success, drama and a climatic ending. Well, of course we need a cast and here is what I propose for the MJ story — I am sure the movie is already in the works and Steven Spielberg is trying to buy the rights!

Is There Value In Playing Hard To Get?

At last month’s Dating Boot Camp event, NYC-based matchmaker Matt Titus talked about the rules of attraction. When a woman makes herself too available to a guy, he warned, it’s “game over.” His declaration raised the obvious question — does the age-old rule of playing hard to get still apply today?

Angelina Jolie’s Skincare Secret Involves Needles!

Some are inclined to think that Angelina Jolie possesses some kind of superhuman powers because no one manages to look that good with such a non-stop schedule. Most of us normals know that most life issues show up on our faces first, whether we’re tired, eating poorly or just plain stressed. So, how does she get the glow? Turns out Angie is allegedly into a bizarre (what else is new?) treatment called derma rolling that involves taking a roller of teeny needles to your face to make small punctures all over your skin. Not surprisingly, derma roller manufacturer, Environ, claims miracle results. The theory is that puncturing the skin stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, the proteins that make your skin look smoother and more youthful. It’s also a way to help products to penetrate pores more deeply: “The principle of the Cosmetic Roll-Cit™ is that the ‘micro-needles’ puncture the horny [huh, huh] layer of the epidermis, which is the main obstruction to penetration of active ingredients,” explains Environ’s website. The LA Times describes it as akin to “aerating your lawn when fertilizing.” Other supposed benefits include improving acne and scarring. Keep reading »
