Does The World Really Need The Doodle Bra?

When I was a kid, I used puffy paint to decorate my jeans, T-shirts, and caps with peace signs and funny faces. Boy, was I behind the times. Now girls are custom-decorating their bras with markers?! The Doodle Bra package comes with a Doodle Bra, stencils, an idea booklet, and special Doodle Bra markers, which wash out, so a maturing young woman can create one-of-a-kind designs and patterns. I thought we were trying to teach young women to have some modesty, not to go around flashing their bras while exclaiming, “Look what I drew!” Also, what’s up with the woman in green in the drawing above who seems to be standing guard, making sure the Doodle Bras are sexy enough?

Is Rihanna The Next Nicole Brown?

Linda Fairstein, a former chief prosecutor for the New York County D.A.’s Special Victims Unit, says Rihanna will end up like Nicole Brown if she reconciles with Chris Brown. Both Rihanna and Nicole were or are in the age group of women, 16 to 24, who face the highest rates of intimate partner violence when they began their relationships with violent men. There were many people who witnessed O.J. Simpson’s abuse of Nicole. Similarly, rumors are now surfacing that suggest the February altercation wasn’t the first time Chris allegedly assaulted Rihanna. Both fans of O.J. and Chris had/are having a difficult time believing the truth about these men whose charm has often gotten them ahead. Brown has supposedly made threats against Rihanna’s life like O.J. did to Nicole. And sadly, Rihanna and Nicole didn’t initially press charges against their violent partners. Keep reading »

Where Are All The Style Icons At?!

Liz Jones, a columnist for the U.K.’s Daily Mail thinks our generation has a problem — we don’t have any style icons! Sure, we’ve got women like Michelle Obama and Kate Moss to look to for style inspiration, but, according to Jones, not one woman in the twentysomething age bracket really deserves the title of “Style Icon.” And she’s got an extra special bone to pick with those who claim model Agyness Deyn DOES.

“Maybe I am old and jaded, but I don’t think she has a clue about style at all. I hate that this messy, un-put together look is deemed somehow ‘London’. That Agy has now joined a long line of cutting edge Brits (Kate Moss, Amy Winehouse and the lamentable Peaches Geldof) who demonstrate how non-conformist they are by dressing like tramps. But what is even more galling is that Agy and her ilk have created so many young female doppelgangers. If I see another twentysomething in black cutoff tights under a mini-skirt worn with ballet flats, I will want to kill myself.”

What’s The Craziest Thing You’ve Done To Win A Guy Back?

Last night on “Secret Diary Of A Call Girl,” Belle gave up the world’s oldest profession. Why would she quit her lucrative career so willingly? Was it the sex party with Bambi that went violently awry? Is she just sick of the biz and her madame? Is she afraid her family is close to finding out her secret now that her politician ex-client has been busted in the newspaper? Nope, none of that stopped her. It was a M-A-N! The high class hooker threw away her career and took a typical, entry-level office job with a jerk boss just to show her ex-boyfriend she still loved him. Of all the things we’ve seen this whore do to please a guy, this takes the cake!

But we’ve all done crazy/dumb/desperate things to try to win a boyfriend back, haven’t we? I may or may not have once drunkenly dedicated my karaoke version of “I Touch Myself” to a dude. What’s the most ridiculously extreme thing you’ve ever done to try to get a guy back? Or what has a dude done to win YOUR heart after having lost it? Fill us Frisky gals in in the comments!

Top Ten Ways Women Take Things Up A Notch

Ask Men U.K. had an interesting article recently on the top ten ways a guy could take a relationship “down a notch” when he doesn’t want to necessarily end it — or, you know, give up regular sex — but just “slow things down a little.” AM tells its readers, “The trick is cooling things down without turning her off” and then gives ten ways to navigate such a “delicate situation.” They suggest having group dates (10), which will makes things feel “less like you’re in a relationship and more like you’re ‘just hanging out,’” not to introduce her to any of your friends (9) , call less often (7), do it-‘n-dash (2), go on vacation without her (1), and just act like an overall jerk (4). Call me crazy, but if a guy really wants is a friends-with-benefits relationship, why not just ask for one? Why go to the big expense of flying to Phoenix alone for the weekend just to prove some point when a conversation would have the same effect? Anyway, we ladies have a few “tricks” of our own. After the jump, the top ten ways we “creatively” take things “up a notch.” Keep reading »

Slideshow: Shoes So Ugly They Should Be Banned

ugly shoes 1 jpg
I’m forced to look at ugly shoes every day. I see them walking down the street, sitting down to eat, in class and at the gym. And while the experience is always harrowing, I’m often able to calm down by reminding myself that I probably won’t come across those red patent platforms with their gold laces and faux fur again. Sometimes though, I find no such comfort, knowing all too well that the hideous footwear I’m witnessing is a full-blown trend and won’t be going anywhere any time soon. Because misery loves company, here are seven ugly shoes that should have never, ever been designed…

Barbie Weddings No Longer Child’s Play In Japan

Barbie just doesn’t cut it for little girls in Japan, who would rather play with Licca-Chan, a rival doll. So instead, Mattel, Inc. will cater to adult brides when it launches the Barbie Bridal line, a collection of wedding gowns complete with ruffles and bows embroidered with the Barbie logo, only in Japan in June. “Once our apparel brand is established, then we can go back to our core target, kids,” said John Cullen, vice president of Mattel Brands. Offering Barbie-themed wedding dresses seems like a disastrous plan for Mattel to bolster the Barbie brand in Japan, but really, it’s not at all far-fetched. Keep reading »
