There’s no denying that in Hollywood, you are what you wear. In fact, everyone is so well styled that it’s often hard to tell the normals from the celebs (okay, that size two girl being followed by paparazzi? Yeah, she’s famous).
Yet, we gotta love LaLa land for its diverse and plentiful shopping areas. Hit up Beverly Hills for super luxe labels, Robertson for start gazing and fancy boutiques, or Melrose for funky thrift shops. Whether you’re looking for California-cool style or the latest celebrity trend, our list of Los Angeles shops will have you covered. Keep reading »
Turning the camera around on the paparazzi is a popular move among celebs these days. Beyonce does her best shutterbug impression in London. [5/25/09] Keep reading »
Last night, while most of us were recovering from a long weekend of food, booze and sun overexposure, the new season of “Jon and Kate Plus 8″ premiered on TLC. It seems Jon and Kate and their 8 kiddos are suffering from a bit of overexposure themselves. Ever since allegations of marital infidelity (Jon’s been accused of cheating on Kate with a young school teacher, Kate’s been accused of cheating on Jon with her bodyguard), the surly couple has been popular tabloid and blog fodder, creating a trail of paparazzi everywhere the family goes, much to Jon’s and Kate’s chagrin. “The media storm stuff? I hate the media storm stuff,” Jon says in a voice over on last night’s episode. “I did not sign up for public scrutiny of everything and neither did Kate.” Oh, no? Well, what did you think you were doing when you signed up for a reality TV show and invited cameras into your personal lives? Keep reading »
“I think I would have had sex a lot earlier! I think I would have lost my virginity earlier than I did at 22. I had the public and all this pressure, and I wish I had just gotten it over with in the beginning when it was sort of OK. I think I would have been much more in touch with myself. I think I wouldn’t have had issues with weight–I carried this protective 20 pounds [in college]. It was all connected. And to me, that’s a health regret.”
As someone who waited until I was nearly 21 to lose my virginity, this revelation from Brooke Shields in Health magazine is fascinating to me. I’ve often thought the same thing, that if I could go back in time and do something differently, I would lose my virginity earlier. My reasons don’t have to do with body image — waiting just ended up being a huge letdown! Looking back, would you change when you lost your v-card? Keep reading »
So, last night my internet was down, hence my usual “Bachelorette” liveblog didn’t happen. I’m sorry. But I did watch and boy, was this episode a good one! Jillian continued to make excellent fashion choices — was that yellow cardigan from Madewell?! — but also exhibited an inexplicable obsession with a honky tonk lifestyle I did not think they grew in Canada. For starters, she’s got a thing for Wes, the country crooner with the icky facial hair and exaggerated accent. He won the first one-on-one date in which he and Jillian enjoyed a romantic dinner in a locked bank vault. No joke. He then made enemies as he totally c**k-blocked every other dude’s chance at one-on-one time, despite being awarded an early rose. Douche!

She’s baaaaack! Susan Boyle returned to the “Britain’s Got Talent” stage on Sunday to perform in the semi-finals. She chose to sing “Memory,” from the musical Cats — so what do you think? Was Susan’s latest everything the hype made her out to be? Keep reading »
Summer is on its way now, so out with the flannels and in with pjs that have more sex appeal!
- These pink flamingo bottoms by C & C California are perhaps not sizzling hot, which is why I will leave it to you to decide what goes on top…if anything at all. [$32, C & C California, Bluefly.com]
- I will most certainly be happy in this cute nightdress from Scanty. The length and drawstring have a certain kittenish look, but the happy faces keeps the serious meter down. [$35, Scanty, Bluefly.com]
- Leopard print…my oh my, this is daring! Leopard print is high on rawr factor, but the jersey tops and bottoms make this look more of a wink-wink kind of sexy. [$35, Tart Intimates, Bluefly.com]
- Python. The world alone makes me think of a deadly sports car. This pink python number will certainly get hearts racing and I can still feel pretty in pink. [$66, Natori, Bluefly.com]

I don’t know what to do about my Virgo coworker (9/09/77). I’m a much younger Taurus (5/09/87), and he’s been flirting with me since November. He stares at me often — to the point that other workers have noticed and commented. Most of the office assumes that there’s something between us, but we’ve grabbed dinner after work only once (and fast food hardly counts). I’ve asked him out on a few occasions, but he always declines. He says he has issues caused by an ex, who was also younger than him, that he’s still broken up about. Apparently, she left him after he got laid off, and she broke his heart.
He told a mutual friend that he thinks I’m very attractive and that he does like me, but he won’t date me because of the age difference. Personally, I think that age doesn’t matter. I hold a higher position, despite being one of the youngest in our office, and usually act more mature than he does. Is there something more that he won’t own up to? Am I missing something? Is there some way to show him that age is just a number?” – Too Stubborn to Give Up Keep reading »
