I’m not proud to admit I’ve already clocked more hours on my wedding-gown search than I did choosing a college.
From afar, it seemed like a fun task to find a gorgeous vintage dress to get married in. On the other hand, it only has to be the most knock-’em-dead dress of a lifetime, to be photographed more than any other outfit I will ever wear.
The upside of going vintage is that nearly every gown is one of a kind. This is also the downside. When you find a real beaut, there’s always at least one thing wrong: color, condition, price, it’s already sold (second most common problem), or the most common and aggravating issue of all, size.

Hilary Duff is against the use of the word “gay” when it means “bad” or “uncool,” not homosexuality. Surprisingly, the above PSA is kind of awesome. [via Missbehave] Keep reading »
To tell you the truth, I’m not so into pants. I wear jeans and I wear dresses whenever I possibly can. But sometimes pants are necessary — on freezing days, on corporate meeting days, and on days when you haven’t done laundry. After the jump, seven pairs of pants I would totally not mind wearing. In fact, I would ever wearing them on warm days, casual Fridays, and the day after picking up my laundry from the cleaners. Keep reading »
Tyra is a diva who likes to pull stunts like a bra burning. But nothing is as inflammatory as sexuality. So, now the talk show host is demanding some guests who want to stop being gay. Say what?! Maybe she’s planning on showing a leopard can’t change it spots by ruining an exotic fur couture coat? Or perhaps she’ll fix ‘em up with her “America’s Next Top Model” gays Mr. and Mrs. Jay? But if there’s anyone crazier than her, it’s a homosexual trying to straighten up. [Feministing] Keep reading »
We love it when guys are fools for love! Nothing is cuter than a gentleman who is cool and sensitive enough to show his best friend he cares. So we totally freaked out when we picked up this week’s TV Guide and saw the stars of Fox’s medical drama “House,” Dr. Wilson with his arm around Dr. House under the caption “Isn’t It Bromantic!” Aww, they’re the cutest couple of cover boys! But they’re not the only television show slated to capture all the dudely devotion this Fall. “The Hill’s” Brody Jenner will also be looking for a fella he can be fond of in his upcoming MTV reality show, “Bromance”. Is this the season of buddy shows? We sure hope so! So in honor of the guys who have added some man love to Television and Film, here are The Best Bromances, after the jump… Keep reading »
Today is Sweetest Day, that odd Hallmark Holiday that remains the awkward teen stepsister to the slightly more tolerable and decidedly more popular Valentine’s Day. I first heard of Sweetest Day years ago when I was a floral designer in Chicago and some poor guy came into to the shop on his lunch break throwing around twenties and begging me to create the most gorgeous Sweetest Day bouquet money could buy. “I need to convince my girlfriend not to dump my ass,” he whined. “Well, why would she dump you? What did you do?” I asked. “I cheated on her,” he replied. And that’s when Sweetest Day was forever branded in my mind as the occasion to atone your relationship sins…or at least spend a bundle on flowers trying. That impression was further molded a couple years later when I was on a first date with a guy who, while flipping through his planner before the movie started, said, “Oh, crap! Sweetest Day is this weekend. I gotta get something for my girlfriend.” “Your girlfriend?!” I asked in disdain. “Yeah, she’s great.” He answered. I opted to skip drinks with him after the movie ended.
So, here’s to Sweetest Day…and hoping none of you get surprised with a gift from your sweetie this year. Keep reading »
In case you were stuck in a cave somewhere and missed the “Project Runway” finale, you can watch it on Saturday. Bravo will also re-air the final episode of “The Rachel Zoe Project” on Saturday, too. You can also check out the complete season of “Baby Borrowers.” I’m kind of excited about the Dooney & Bourke event on QVC, which airs Saturday afternoon. On Sunday, you can watch the classic “Mommie Dearest” while you clean out your closet for fall. Remember, no wire hangers, evahhhhhhh! And of course, Sunday is great for primetime viewing.

In case you don’t speak German, “wunderbar” means “wonderful.” It also happens to be the name of my very favorite candy bar. Keep reading »
This weekend, Oliver Stone’s highly anticipated movie about the fairly unpopular president (Bush), “W”, comes out. I’m psyched to see this film, though I’m still pretty unclear on whether it’s a comedy or a drama. Still, Josh Brolin (Dubya), Elizabeth Banks (Laura), Ellen Burstyn (Barbara), and James Cromwell (George Sr.) should add up to being a pretty compelling movie, acting wise. And Richard Dreyfus plays Dick Cheney! That’s so perfect because I hate Richard Dreyfus. Anyway, after the jump, a summary of some of the reviews so far, so you can decide for youself if this is a must-see or a see-it-on-HBO type flick. Keep reading »
