Fall Trend Alert: Backpacks

blackbackpack 092910 m jpg
Celebs like Daisy Lowe, Ashley Olsen, Rihanna, and Rachel Bilson have all jumped on the backpack trend. And with all of the $1000+ “It” bags out there, isn’t it refreshing to find a style that is not only cute and totally wearable, but also functions as a bag should? Backpacks now come in everything from leather and suede, to canvas and nylon, and in fun prints, bright colors, and earthy tones. These aren’t the same padded, clunky backpacks that kiddies go off to school with — because at the end of the day, when faced with a choice between function and fabulous, we’ll take fabulous every time.

Above, the classic black leather backpack is sported by the likes of Megan Fox and Jessica Hart. Perfect to swing over a T-shirt or edge up a floral dress.

The Top 10 Gifts Facebook Has Given Us

This weekend, “The Social Network,” a scripted movie about Facebook’s origins, opens nationwide. In honor of this momentous-ish occasion, we’ll be re-running some of our Facebook-related content that you might have missed, illustrating the good, bad, and ugly things the social networking site has brought into our previously status update-free lives. The piece below originally ran in Feb. 2009.

Facebook, the social networking site that has connected more than 150 million of us with people we wouldn’t recognize if we bumped into them on the street, turns five today! In honor of the big day, I’d like to reflect on the gifts that Facebook has given to us over the past five years. After the jump, the top ten gifts for which you can thank Facebook. Keep reading »

I Recovered From Brain Damage

Halfway through my senior year in high school, I was getting ready to have a huge party in my barn after Winter Ball. My friends and I were in the hay loft, decorating and messing around. I was hanging a sheet and not paying attention as I walked backward. I then passed through the hole in the loft ceiling, fell 14 feet backward, landed on my head and went into a coma.

Dear Wendy: “My BF Told Me He’s Only With Me For Sex”

My boyfriend and I have been in a relationship for almost six months now, but for three months over the summer, we were long distance and weren’t able to visit one another. We were both really excited to see each other when school started in August. But since then, we have been fighting a lot. I think it’s because we’re not in the carefree summer mode anymore and are both stressed about schoolwork. We usually don’t see each other until after 9:30 or 10 p.m. each day, which has turned into sex/sleep/cuddle time with minimal talking. We text the majority of most days so it hasn’t bothered me all that much that we don’t talk about things in person. Recently, we got into a really big fight where I threatened to be done with our relationship and he texted something really hurtful. He told me that no one would ever want to date me except to have consistent sex. He told me later that he never meant it and that I should forget that he said it. But I can’t, and I’ve refused to have sex with him. I don’t know what to do or how to handle this because apparently trying to talk it out (or the way I have tried) hasn’t worked. — Over-thinker

5 Character Actors Facing Legal Troubles

I would imagine that the biggest problem with being a character actor is that you’ll probably be known for one role for the rest of your life, but you’re not famous enough to get out of your legal woes. Jeffrey Jones, who played Principal Rooney in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” spent his 64th birthday in court after failing to update his sex offender registration. In 2003, he was charged after paying a 14-year-old boy to pose in a sexually explicit photo shoot and he will have to register as a sex offender every year now. Since he failed to register last year, Jones was sentenced to three years probation and 250 hours of roadside cleanup community service. Yeah, it sucks to be him right now. [NY Daily News]

We’ve rounded up a few other character actors with recent legal woes. Keep reading »
