Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Earlier this month Frisky staffers shared the stories of the worst gifts we’ve ever received. When we read the horrifying/hilarious bad gift stories from our readers, we had to share those too. But what about the best gifts we’ve ever received? I’ll never forget one birthday when I was in high school–my brother secretly asked all my friends, family, and teachers to write notes to me and then stapled them all together in a little book titled “Why We Love Winona.” So awesome. A non-nostalgic close second? The thermal pants my aunt got me for Christmas last year. Whenever I wear them (pretty much every night) I feel cozy and grateful. Read on for a few stories from Frisky staffers, and please share your own best gift stories in the comments!
We included skinny cargo pants on our list of trends we hope die in 2011 for good reason, but these cargo leggings deserve a separate shout-out of their own. The combination of skintight spandex and lumpy thigh pockets not only creates a supremely unflattering silhouette, it also encourages the wearing of leggings as pants (another trend that made our list). For shame! [$176, Shopbop] Keep reading »
“Extremeties” may not be slated to open for at least a year, but I would recommend getting a ticket to the Broadway play now. Katie Holmes is being courted for the play about a woman who seeks revenge on an attempted rapist with the help of her two roommates. And it looks like Chloe Sevigny may be co-starring with her. “I was reading it and I’m kind of seeing how the cast is gonna pan out,” Chloe tells Entertainment Weekly. “I know the director is great but I feel like the cast has gotta be real strong. And it’s such a commitment.” As for the attempted rapist, producers were talking to Matt Dillon but he had a timing conflict. Guess we’ll have to see who takes over for him. Strangely, I can totally see Katie and Chloe becoming good friends. After all, Katie’s a Scientologist and Chloe has played a polygamist Mormon for the past few years. So they have the religious cult connection, if nothing else. Oh, and they’re both such fashion plates. [NY Times, Huffington Post] Keep reading »
