Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
With a fantastic military-inspired jacket, skinny high-water jeans in the perfect wash, amazing over-sized Dior satchel, and patent leather pumps, Charlize Theron gives off no-effort chic. This is a great look for when the weather is dreary but you still need to appear completely put-together. Follow Charlize’s lead by grabbing a boyfriend blazer with contrast lining to keep the look classic once the coat comes off. Take a look at our version after the jump, and tell us: What’s your favorite go-to outfit when you need to look put-together but can’t bring yourself to think?
I’m all for accessories that make a strong statement, but let’s make sure that statement isn’t, “I just stopped by the pet store and strapped a couple angry guinea pigs to my head.” And for $165? You could buy one pair of normal sized, reasonably priced ear muffs and, like, 10 happy guinea pigs. I mean, if you were into the guinea pig thing. [Shopbop] Keep reading »
When the weather is gray and you feel like you can hardly lift yourself out of bed, pop on a bright color to get your day moving. (OK, so we can’t promise that a vibrant yellow sweater will have the same effect as caffeine, but you could at least try it out.) Check out our picks after the jump!
Olivier Zahm is a fashion editor whose sex life is an open book. Literally. Well, virtually, rather. The editor of the artsy fashion bible Purple, Olivier is known for posting salacious pictures and stories from his life online. In a big New York Times Styles profile on the lad, he likens himself to Warhol. He says, “Even in the bedroom I have my camera, I sleep with my camera, I have lunch with my camera.” What this often means is providing to his viewers and followers very graphic portraits of the women he’s with, who seem to rotate with shocking frequency. When Zahm takes trips from Paris to New York, the Purple Diary blog is updated constantly, and each day Zahm is kissing a different girl or taking photographs of someone’s breasts who were definitely not the same someone’s yesterday.

I’ve been with my girlfriend for about two and a half years. The one problem I have is with my girlfriend’s friends and how they handle money. From everything I know, everyone is on pretty similar pay levels, but her friends always seem to be short on cash when they do stuff together. My girlfriend always covers everything, whether it’s drinks, dinners, or tickets to events, and gets defensive when I ask about it and says “it’s just a couple dollars between friends.” Recently, I’ve been getting short-changed by them, too. They will invite us out to a fancy restaurant, order up a storm of appetizers and bottles of wine, while I’m content with my single entrée and beverage, and then when the bill comes, they’ll suggest we split everything evenly, and then when it comes time to pay, what they’ve put in is about half of what their evenly divided portion should have been. I’ll offer to pay the remainder to avoid an issue, but it leaves me peeved. I can cover these financial indiscretions without problem since I’m better off financially than most in the group, but my girlfriend is saving up for a big trip soon, and can never seem to get out of debt, yet is still always paying for her friends and is mortally embarrassed when I threaten to call them out on it. Also, if I’m thinking about a long-term future with her, I’m afraid to have joint finances if she can’t seem to manage her own. — Need a Bail Out
