Style On The Street: “Gossip Girl” Extra

A plaid coat would fit in perfectly at Constance Billard School for Girls. It would also be an excellent addition to my closet. [Trender Bender] Keep reading »

Project Runway’s Kenley: I Take Back My Girl Crush

Red lipstick, brown hair, ‘tude-tastic, and she likes to wear feathers — on paper, Kenley from Project Runway sounds like my celeb doppleganger! It was girl crush at first episode. However, as the season has progressed, that brat has broken my heart and now she seems more like my evil twin. Kenley may make ladylike dresses but she has some seriously bad manners. She’s been so rude, I feel betrayed by my style and she’s made me reconsider my love of retro. When Kenley laughed at poor Joe on the runway with her trained poodle protégé, it made me want to puke all over her handmade dress. You know when Tim Gunn has to sit you down for a talk, you better step off. Alas, Kenley thinks she is too cool for the way of the Gunn and just seems to be taking her self-image on a downward spiral. Karma is an even bigger bitch than you, Kenley! Everyone with cable television has seen you in action and just like these Bratz, your day is coming, doll. [Seattle PI] Keep reading »

The Prince Albert: A (His)tory

Grace Kelly’s son, the playboy Prince Albert of Monaco, is finally engaged! While the significance of him producing an heir is important to Europe, we here at The Frisky are interested in talking about the other historically significant Prince Albert — the penis piercing. All the meaty details, after the jump…

Eight Ways To Get A Shopping High Without Shopping (Much)

Our poll earlier today is showing that along with cutting back on restaurant dinners, the state of the economy is forcing you to cease your late-night visits to JCrew.com. But if you love, love, love clothes and are feeling the itch for a new fall wardrobe, try one of these seven shopping alternatives, instead. Your bank account will thank you.

1. Clean Out Your Closet
If you take a Saturday and “merchandise” your closet, i.e., arrange shirts by sleeve length, you’ll feel like you’re shopping at a boutique every morning when you pick out your outfit for the day. Plus, you might find a dress that got pushed to the back of your closet or fell onto the floor and has been in a crumpled ball for the past six months.

Crave: Metalsgirl Resin and Herb Necklace

We’ve experienced growing, cooking and smoking herbs (sage, duh!), but it took jewelry designer Metalsgirl to convince us how wearable the plants are, too. Metalsgirl uses herbs like Thyme, Poppy seed, Rosemary, and Scullcap in a lovely line we covet called Resin and Herb. Love the color combination of this black, white, red and celery green necklace and while we’re not sure which herb it features, we think it’s a hit. [$80, Metalsgirl] Keep reading »

Hot Outta The Oven: Detox-Friendly Roasted Halibut

Hot foodie Teri Tsang Barrett knows her way around a kitchen—a graduate of the Institute of Culinary Education, she works as a Food Editor at Everyday With Rachael Ray in constant search of the perfect thin crust pizza. Here she unveils her favorite frisky recipes—good food that every ravenous gal can make in a pinch. Got a rumble in your belly for something you want her to cook up a recipe for? Email us at tips@thefrisky.com.

After a summer full of beer, margaritas and terrible wedding food, my husband and I are going full-court press with the detox. Call it prep for the holidays or fiscal conservation (you’ve been reading the papers, right?), but eating light and in sounded as good as a banana split being served by George Clooney on Lake Como. And everyone knows that fish is good for you. Fish is kinda scary though, too. Unless I’m shopping at a fishmonger or Whole Foods, I tend to steer clear of our finned friends, because God knows how long it’s been out of water. Make the effort to find fish of the best quality possible. Once you’ve nailed that requirement, it’s a piece of cake. Fish cooks fast and it doesn’t take a whole lot to flavor it just right. Halve the recipe after the jump if you’re feeding just two, but as dinner party food goes, this one’s the bomb. Quick and easy, tangy and satisfying—and it’s good for them too.

10 Movies, TV Shows, & Songs To Avoid During A Breakup

While I am on this “break” with the man friend (it remains unclear how long this break will last, FYI), I’ve sworn off certain movies, TV shows, and songs out of fear that they’ll make me depressed. A friend of mine went through a breakup recently and all she did was listen to Morrissey, but wallowing is not really my heartbreak style. I like avoidance and denial. Obviously, I can’t avoid these aspects of pop culture forever and will need to work them gradually back into my life, but for now, there will be no “General Hospital”, or Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend”, or Reese Witherspoon movies. See the rest of the list of Pop Culture No-No’s, after the jump. Keep reading »

Having A Baby With Your Gay Best Friend: What’s In It For The Ladies?

For more than a decade, my best friend has been a gay guy. I don’t really even like qualifying him as a “gay guy,” since his gayness is such a non-issue in our relationship and in my perception of him. Part of that may be the type of gay he is, or more accurately, the type of gay he isn’t. He never knows, for example, when it’s Pride weekend, and he doesn’t own anything rainbow, and he doesn’t even like Madonna. He does, however, love “Project Runway” as much as I do and his home is so beautifully designed, it would give Martha Stewart an inferiority complex. Sometimes after we’ve had a few bottles of wine — as we’re known to do — and we’re good and lubricated, he’ll slide in a comment about the possibility of us making a kid together. Usually, it’ll be a remark about what great hair it would have or how it would surely inherit the same square Flintstone feet we both share. I’ll chuckle and reply with some quip about it also inheriting the same flightiness we both have, too, and then I’ll change the subject. Keep reading »

Boo Tyra And America’s Next Top Model

To say that I’m displeased with Tyra and the other “America’s Next Top Model” judges for eliminating Isis would be an understatement. I’m actually pissed! Keep reading »

What Happens When Your Heels Are Too High

Fast forward to 1:44 to view a horrible model fall, which hopefully didn’t result in a sprained ankle. Designer Miuccia Prada says the heels won’t be as high when they get to stores next spring. Keep reading to see the offending shoes… Keep reading »
