Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Originally bought by my best friend in the mid-’90s while she was in high school, if this Calvin Klein Jeans jacket could talk, oh the stories it would tell. Fortunately, for my girlfriend and me, it can’t talk, so our secrets are safe. But the history still shows through its frayed hems, missing buttons, and crinkled body — things that make me love it even more. This jacket has been everywhere from rock concerts to breakup sceness and everything in between. Every fall, I get excited to throw it on, and it never disappoints; the classic lines and military green color are tried and true and it has a relaxed, cool, effortlessly chic vibe. But what about when fall turns into winter, temperatures drop, and lighter jackets get put away until spring? May I suggest DIYing it? Take a look after the jump to see how you can stylishly bring a lighter jacket into winter with you, and then tell us, do you have a favorite article of clothing that’s been with you through thick and thin?

Kylie Minogue has had a movie-worthy life between the soap operas, the locomotion, a comeback, and a battle with cancer. But it would probably be best, if said film is ever made, for Kylie to stay out of the casting process. When the singer was asked who she would want to play her in a film, Minogue offered, “I’ve been told Hilary Duff resembles me. If she could manage to lose the American accent perhaps that would work.” Erm, I mean I enjoyed “Lizzie McGuire” as much as the next person, but Duff isn’t the shiniest star Hollywood has to offer. Though I will say the resemblance is there. [Huffington Post]
After the jump, other famous folks who’ve casted themselves, with sometimes bizarre and gender-bending results.
First Taylor Swift scoops up Jake Gyllenhaal. Then Blake Lively gets flirty with Ryan Gosling. And now it looks like Neve Campbell may be dating Isaiah Mustafa, aka the Old Spice Guy. According to a source who squealed to Us Weekly, “They’re dating. Neve is really happy.” I guess I feel happy for her, since she split with her husband in June and that can’t be easy. But still, can’t these gorgeous famous women leave some awesome dudes for us? Gawd. [PopEater] Keep reading »
