Are You A Dating Disaster?

If it’s stupid and embarrassing, I’ve done some version of it on a date … and have had to do some pretty impressive damage control to make up for it.

From cartwheeling over a restaurant chair like I was in the “American Gladiators” atlasphere to accidentally saying unflattering things about Hunt’s ketchup (honestly, how could I have possibly known her father worked at Hunt’s parent company, agribusiness giant ConAgra?), I’m an ace at figuring out how to thoroughly embarrass myself.

Tavi Gets Christine O’Donnell Fashion Right

“Super average leather brown clunkers, but with pentacle-esque stitching. Like the Christine O’Donnell witch malarky, in shoe form.”

Tavi, being hilarious and witty as usual on Style Rookie. Think you’d find a pair of these Marios Schwab clogs in Miss O’Donnell‘s closet? [Style Rookie] Keep reading »

Old-School Wednesdays: Porno For Pyros Makes Good “Pets”


When I was in high school, I thought I was too cool for all the crap they played on modern rock radio.

The song “Pets” is an insta-classic. [YouTube] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Clarence Thomas’ Wife Asks Anita Hill For Sexual Harassment Apology

  • Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ wife, Virginia Thomas, called Anita Hill and left a message on her Brandeis University answering machine asking her for an apology nearly 20 years after the two families were embroiled in a very public sexual harassment battle. In 1991, Hill testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee before Thomas’ confirmation that he had made inappropriate sexual comments to her, including describing porn films. “Good morning Anita Hill, it’s Ginni Thomas. I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband,” the voice said. “So give it some thought. And certainly pray about this and hope that one day you will help us understand why you did what you did. O.K., have a good day.” In response, Anita Hill told The New York Times, “[Virginia Thomas] can’t ask for an apology without suggesting that I did something wrong, and that is offensive.” [New York Times]

French Macaroon Maker La Durée Brings Sweet Accessories To The Table

If you ever go to France, an absolute must on your tour should be La Durée, the famous maker of fashionable macaroons (or macarons as the French call them). They’re a favorite among the stylish set for their bright and sugary colors and gorgeous packaging. There’s good news for both fans of the sweets and those who can’t get to Paris—La Durée has made a collection of squeal-worthy stationery, notebooks, candles, and key chains that you can get via Opening Ceremony. Each creation is like a little treasure in itself. Think stickers depicting cakes, cookies, and Parisian images as well as sticky notes decorated with dog portraits and card sets with gold and pink color themes. We’re thinking these would make the perfect holiday stocking stuffers and office gifts (but we’d kind of rather keep them all for ourselves). [$10-55, Opening Ceremony] Keep reading »
