The world laughed when Heidi Montag said that she felt like she was trapped in her own body because of her enormo breast implants. But I totally understand what she’s talking about.
At 25, I had lost a large amount of weight and my body fat percentage was drastically reduced in a short period of time. This worked wonders for my ass, but wreaked havoc on my chest. I remarked to my girlfriends one night after a few too many drinks that I had tiger nipples. This description, complete with claws and roaring noises, was a reference to the stretch marks that cut deep swaths in my once firm skin. I was in an unhealthy relationship at the time and at the urging of my partner, I decided to do something about my prematurely sagging breasts. Keep reading »
A couple weeks ago we debuted a new feature, “Ask The Man Panel,” wherein we solicit guys’ opinions on clothing and fashion trends. We kicked things off with a $6,000 Marie Antoinette-inspired shoe, and today we showed them this, um, unique outfit from Alexander Wang, which includes a $600 hooded romper and a model who seems to be suffering from severe depression.
Let’s see what the men had to say … Keep reading »
The awesome fashion blog Kingdom of Style always has something I’ve never seen before, and the latest is a series of fashions inspired by Sylvia Plath’s 1963 semi-autobiographical novel, The Bell Jar. The line was designed by Jaggy Nettle, a Scotland-based design house. The cashmere sweater seen here and worn by Kingdom of Style blogger Queen Michelle was modeled after the 1966 Faber & Faber cover of The Bell Jar, the spiraling circles of which seem to allude to Plath’s descent into madness chronicled in the book. In any case, we like our literary allusions wearable. [Kingdom of Style] Keep reading »
I live in Paris. And I wear pants. Which apparently means I’m in big trouble. I got a crazy talking to the other day from a man sitting next to me in a cafe when he told me what I was doing was illegal. I panicked for a second, hoping that my heroin stash hadn’t fallen out of my bag or that the security tag from my stolen shirt wasn’t showing. No, all good there, so what was the deal? “You’re wearing pants,” the creepster said. “You know it’s against the law for women to wear pants in Paris, right?” Keep reading »
In honor of Cranky Coworkers Day, I’d like to take this opportunity to create a forum to vent about the most annoying things our coworkers do. Let’s face it, no matter how saintly you are, when you spend eight hours a day in a cramped space with anyone you are bound to get irritated at some point. Of course, my co-workers at The Frisky are a dream to work with, but it hasn’t always been that way. Let’s just say I had a boss who made me print out and fax every email she received to her hotel while she was on vacation. That’s an entire forest, gone in minutes. There was also the coworker who would come by my desk and always take a bite of my lunch without asking. WTF? And last, but certainly not least, the douche bag dude who took all the credit for my work. He made me understand the true meaning of “going postal.” Go ahead, get your rocks off. Tell us what your coworkers do that drive you crazy.
