Memorial Day Weekend is upon is and we’re more excited about the barbecue bit than anything else. While I definitely won’t be doing any cooking —I’m prone to burning myself in even the safest of situations—I definitely will be standing near the grill decked out in my cooking finest looking like I could be of use. It’s a tricky and foolproof plan.
Join me, won’t you? Keep reading »
Hey there, sailor…it’s Fleet Week in NYC! It’s that time of year when even girls who swear they don’t dig dudes in uniform realize they are hard-pressed to resist the all American charm of nautical men.
If you are so inclined to do your patriotic duty and show one of these boys around town, we do not suggest wearing nautical-themed clothes. A night out on the town with a sailor while wearing a nautical outfit is a bit too much camp, even for us.

Remember “Blossom“, the ’90s sitcom featuring a single dad, his quirky teen, and her closet of floral dresses and hats? Children of the era will forever look to Blossom as a past fashion icon, so we couldn’t help but gasp when we heard that Mayim Bialik, the show’s star, is now set to appear on an episode of “What Not to Wear.” It looks like Mayim is still walking around in flowy dresses and braids, and we’d like to say, more power to her!
