Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
We are loving the major fall trend of fur booties. Whether real or faux, designers of all levels have added fuzzy boots to their fall lineup. We’ve been obsessing over the Christian Louboutin “Toundra” fur bootie for some time now, so when we discovered Forever 21’s faux fur pair, we could barely contain our excitement. What makes this version so great is the color and texture of the faux fur as well as the details it has taken from its higher priced partner: strap and buckle details, the chunky platform pointy toe, and a great shaped sexy heel. A fantastic take on a high-end look. So, tell us — would you wear this trend or do you think it’s one to be left to the Eskimos? [1.

I was 5 years old the first time I threw on a pair of heels, packed a suitcase and informed my mother that I was moving out. At age 10, I boarded a plane to swim camp and never looked back. My father, worried, followed me on board to make sure I was fine—I was horrified by his intrusion. By the time I reached 12, I’d begun fantasizing about boarding school and begged my parents to send me away soon after. At age 15, I volunteered in Venezuela for the entire summer—I left a few days after the school year ended and returned home a mere week before classes began again.
The summer of 1998 is rarely mentioned. That was the summer my parents parted ways and I flew between Tennessee and California roughly a dozen times in three months. Keep reading »
We said it was a Lifetime movie waiting to happen. And this is why we are not big-time Hollywood producers. Brad Pitt sees far more potential in the story of the 33 miners who were trapped underground for more than two months earlier this year. His production company, Plan B—which also produced “Eat, Pray, Love” and “The Time Traveler’s Wife”—is close to inking a multi-million dollar deal to the rights to the saga. Apparently, there are just two hold-ups.

“I really don’t think I need to say, ‘Mommy was a porn star.’ I feel like they’re going to know me and think, ‘Mommy loved us so much that she quit everything and made us her job.’ And that’s what I did. The moment I decided to have children, I quit. I won’t even do a Maxim cover.”
I am currently sharing my apartment with my ex-boyfriend. Initially, this wasn’t the plan, but he gave a good argument about why it would be beneficial to the both of us — namely financially. I told him we could try it out and see. Well, it’s been a month and something has come to my attention that just really bothers me. He recently sent me an e-mail, accidentally, under an alias e-mail account he uses. The weird thing is that his alias is a female. When I asked him why he had an alias account and why he’s using a female name, he hesitated then said, “I don’t know … I use it for junk e-mails and stuff.” I explained to him that I thought it was creepy. I, too, have an e-mail account specifically for junk e-mails, but I don’t use an alias and if I did, my alias wouldn’t be a member of the opposite sex. His response to this was to delete his female alias account and create a new male alias account. My question is, am I wrong to find this incredibly creepy and to wonder what else he’s hiding? It’s no secret that one of the reasons we broke up was due to his secretiveness and lying. Am I an idiot for thinking we could be roommates? — Two’s A Crowd
