If You Have to Grill, You Should At Least Look Good Doing It

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: The Best Pin-up Girl Looks For Fleet Week

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. This year we are thinking that a blast from the past of the best pin-up girl looks from the ’50s are the best bet for setting sea-faring hearts aflutter. Keep reading »

This weekend, I’m going to a couple barbecues. I’m usually the odd girl out at these kinds of things, because I can’t eat whatever meats on the grill, so I’m gonna try to fit in by wearing another cookout staple: gingham.

Senator Feingold Loves Wilco And Four Other Rockin’ Politicians

Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold loves cheese, and he has great taste in music. In fact, the politico posts videos featuring the bands he loves in “Fein-tunes.” This month, he sang the praises of Midwestern indie group Wilco. It’s proof that sometimes Washington can back more than legislation. It can back that ass up, too. [Pitchfork] Keep reading »

Five Items From Winter You Can Wear This Summer

According to old school fashion rules, now that Memorial Day is upon us, we can dust off our bright whites without committing a fashion faux pas.

But the sort of thinking that declares a strict divide between summer and winter clothes is just too fussy for us—try these five of our favorite trends from the winter even as summer waxes on. Besides, we’ve never been sticklers for fashion rules anyway. Keep reading »

We don’t really go for the athletic type of man, so it should come as no surprise that we didn’t recognize half of Men’s Fitness25 Fittest Guys. This is the first time the magazine has compiled this list, so they didn’t just look for fit men in the United States, but went all over the globe. Click through for more eye candy.

Twitter Tirades: Stars — They Tweet Like Us!

Reading celebrity Twitters is like flipping to US Weekly‘s “They’re Just Like Us!” section. They whine about bad TV, do battle with technology, and wonder what other people think of them. This week, Nicole Richie’s Blackberry broke, John Mayer was busy, James Franco saw “Star Trek”, Samantha Ronson watched MTV, Karl Lagerfeld tried to make us feel better about buying his clothes, and Mindy Kaling may or may not have gone to Paris for a boob job.

Save Blossom and ’90s Fashion!

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! Here’s how to get the Blossom look—albeit slightly updated. Wear those Doc Martens with pride! Keep reading »

Gallery: Men We Wouldn’t Mind Seeing In Skirts

Even in these “Tough Economic Times,” guys are willing to pay a pretty penny for a skirt that shapes that ass just right. (More like 130,000 pennies, actually.) How else do you explain the quick selling out of Thom Browne’s man skirt on Gilt Groupe just the other day? Though it was marked down significantly from its usual $4,370 price point, $1,300 is still quite a lot to pay for a male pencil skirt.

We take this to mean that the Mirt is officially cool now. Though the man skirt has a long history, Marc Jacobs revived the Mirt’s popularity when he showed the sartorially questionable creation on his runway last spring. But we’re wondering which other men will catch on and show some gam. There are a few in particular who we totally wouldn’t mind seeing in a garment with such easy access…

Like Will Smith. Mother of god, that man looks good in anything. We’d probably prefer him naked, but he makes that printed skirt look damn fine.

Why Guys Hate Date Movies

Allow me to make three outrageous assumptions, so I don’t have to keep saying “Of course, not all women…” and “That being said, some men…” and so forth. Here goes: 1) Women love romantic movies. 2) Men love action movies. 3) Men love women, and women, for some reason, love men. Keep reading »
