Scarves are obviously a necessity during winter, when the temperatures drop to unbearable and every inch of skin needs to be covered. But scarves are also big for fall — called “transition” scarves, these are made of thin fabric, often colorful combinations, and are a little on the boho side. Perfect for when the weather is starting to cool, just a touch. Lauren Conrad recently said she loves to add a colorful thin scarf to an otherwise simple outfit to pull it all together. We like that idea too. Keep reading »
Not that style and politics should mix, and we certainly don’t think a candidate or a candidate’s spouse should be criticized for lacking style, but Catherine and I have both been bowled over by Michelle Obama’s nose for fashion over the course of the campaign. And never more so as when we both came into the office after the final night of the DNC and said nearly in unison (after we discussed the actual substance of the night’s big speeches, of course), “Who was Michelle wearing?” Now we have the answer! According to Fashion Week Daily, Obama was wearing a Thakoon dress adorned with three Erickson Beamon broaches. Unfortunately, it’s not clear whether Obama did the accessorizing herself or whether they came with the dress as is, but regardless, this just backs up our belief that printed dresses and costume brooches are totally going to be huge for Fall.

There’s a part of me that sometimes gets a little cynical — it doesn’t help when the Guys On Our IM make me want to re-question my sexuality — but then I hear a little story like the one I’m about to tell, and my heart melts, I hear birds twittering, and a rainbow suddenly bursts across the sky. So, one of the guys who helps out on the technical side of The Frisky recently got married to his lovely girlfriend of many years. As a final present to show his appreciation and love for her, he gave her the nerdiest/most insanely romantic gift I have ever heard of. Being that he’s one of these tech guys who gets things about the Internet’s potential, he optimized the search term the most beautiful bride in the world — that way, when you type that exactly into Google.com search and click “I’m Feeling Lucky”, it takes you directly to a website he set up for his new wife. Seriously. Try it. But don’t get mad at your SEO because he’ll never come up with something as sweet and awesome.. Keep reading »
Before Johnny Depp was an Oscar-nominated actor and honorary Frenchie, he was in a band called The Kids. He reunited with the band last night at a benefit concert and totally rocks a sweaty t-shirt with the best of them. Keep reading »
I’ve always been a late bloomer, so it wasn’t until my late ’20s that it occurred to me to groom my somewhat pronounced Black Irish eyebrows. And it was only natural that my carpet was mostly natural; I did minimal trimming to reign in my coordinating pronounced downtown region. I believe SNL’s Amy Poehler on “Weekend Update” compared this old school size of pubic-hair real estate to a slice of New York City pizza, which would not be altogether off the mark in describing my zone’s unaltered state. My reasons were numerous, though I’d never had to give them. Keep reading »

It’s become my understanding that “sex on the beach” is a cliché that leads to sand in bad places. However, sex and beach are both words that bring to mind the ultimate summer fling. Scantily clad bodies, sun, surf, outdoor bars, gleaming tans, it all makes for a lovely little fantasy. Unfortunately, fantasies often come to an end. Sorry kid, time to wake up from that dream. Fall is almost here! So how are you going to let your summer fling fade gently into the sunset? Here are my tips:
(WO)MAN UP: I don’t like people who ignore — they have absolutely no backbone and are cowards. Own up to what you’re doing. Make it clear that it is O-V-E-R. This was fun, but now it’s done. You don’t want to get stuck with a Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction: “I will not be IGNORED, Daniel!”

Leggings are great for working out, lounging around, throwing on, or for pairing with an outfit that was a once cute dress but is now too short. The greatness of leggings, is not what I’m debating here. It’s what’s spawning from these tight favorites that has me worried. Mainly, what are these faux leather, almost plastic looking leggings that are popping up everywhere? I can’t decide if I love them or hate them. They’re definitely funky and a good trend for those completely bored of jeans (ahem, moi). American Apparel has gone so far as to make high-waisted and faux denim leggings. So time to weigh in ladies. Will you be shimmying into these tight creations? Love it or leave it? Keep reading »
