White lace is a deceptive fabric. It kind of wants you to think it should only be worn during the warmer months, with sandals and bare legs and a tan. And it should be worn then, but you can totally also wear white lace in winter, with the addition of one very important piece — BLACK TIGHTS. Black tights help white lace come out of winter hibernation — just look at how chic Jessica Alba looks in this Victorian-inspired white lace swing dress, her vibe further winterized with a deep plum lip and long sleeves. Here’s how plus-size women can replicate her look… Keep reading »
According to Lacey T, the a 27-year-old Oakland Raiders cheerleader who filed an unfair labor practices lawsuit on behalf of all the Raiderettes, there are some majorly screwed up and “illegal” demands placed on NFL cheerleaders. The fact that Cincinnati Ben-Gal Alexa Brenneman has filed a similar lawsuit against her team for violating federal employment laws only seems to confirm that treating cheerleaders like underpaid (the lawsuit says cheerleaders in Cincinnati make $900 a season), undervalued objects is a common practice in the NFL. Below, some of the “rules” Brenneman claims she was forced to abide by — including mandates about “no panties, “slouchy breasts” and “scale weight.” Be prepared to be outraged. Keep reading »
I’m really into the over-the-knee socks trend. I think they look super cute under boots, layered over tights, leggings, or bare legs. They’re flattering, sexy, and warm — a rare trifecta that’s been especially appreciated in this awful cold weather we’ve been having. I had been wistfully admiring this look on other women for awhile, but I was hesitant to try it myself. As someone with, umm, ample thighs, I didn’t think I’d ever be able to find over-the-knee socks that didn’t pinch or create a wool sausage effect. Then I ordered a pair of EG Smith over-the-knee socks from Sock Dreams, and now I’m rarely ever not wearing them. I had to take a moment to share the love with y’all, because these socks are THAT good. Keep reading »
Sure, getting dressed and undressed is second nature to pretty much everyone. We do it multiple times every day, why would men in particular need some sort of tutorial? Because, my friends, I recently realized that while there is no explicitly wrong way to get dressed and undressed, there is a decisively sexier way, especially before and after you get down. So, gentleman, if you want to reach peak sex appeal the next time you take off your shirt or pull on your pants, follow these rules, presented in GIFs of course. (Gotta have somethin’ for the ladies to look at…) Keep reading »
“I was so nervous about [filming Marnie's masturbation scene], Lena [Dunham] brought me in the dressing room and we took turns being up against the door. I would go ‘Do you think it should look like this,’ and then she’d say ‘No, no, no, no, hey, you sit down, I’m gonna try it,’ and it was like ‘Oh, that’s so interesting, because I was picturing like this.’ We were trying to decide, because Marnie was wearing tights and a dress, does she like, pull up the dress and then go down the tights? Or does she pull down the tights and then pull up the dress?”
Why am I not surprised that Lena Dunham was hands-on in helping Allison Williams with Marnie’s masturbation scene? Even though I didn’t find it super-realistic that someone would go masturbate in a bathroom in the middle of a party, good on “Girls” for showing women masturbating as a completely normal thing to do. If Allison has it her way, Marnie will be rubbing one out a lot more. ”I hope Marnie can find a way to somehow fulfill herself. I hope that she starts masturbating more, doing whatever she has to do to be her own person,” the actress told Dazed Digital. “There’s nothing quite like knowing that you can make it on your own. It’s very empowering.” Indeed! Something tells me Jessa could help Marnie shop for the perfect vibe. [Dazed Digital]
Who knew? Life as a professional cheerleader can be a struggle. Lacey T, a 27-year-old Oakland Raiders cheerleader, filed a lawsuit against her team yesterday for wage theft and unfair labor practices. Her lawsuit is on behalf of all 40 Raiderettes, who earn only $1,250 annually. Some of her grievances are as follows: Keep reading »

I know what you’re thinking: a crop top?! Really? Yes. I humbly ask you to consider the crop top sweater as a versatile wardrobe staple rather than a trendy mistake you’ll one day regret. With a high waisted, ladylike skirt, only a thing band of skin showing, the crop top sweater is understated sexy. Layered over a long button down and skinny jeans, it’s a modern take on prep. Seriously, you need one. Check out three ways to wear it, after the jump! Keep reading »
On Tuesday, the high in New York City is going to be 12 degrees. I know some of you live in the midwest and that’s all normal and good for you, but for me, 12 degrees is CRAZY INSANE COLD. Like, that ain’t right. If I could, I would wear a snowsuit all day, but I’ve found all that excess puffiness inhibits my ability to type. Instead, I shall layer a warm sweater dress over my coziest leggings and boots and pray Mother Nature gets her shit together soon.
Sweater dresses are awesome because they are all the warmth of a sweater, BUT LONGER, and all the cuteness of a dress, BUT WARMER, perfect for layering over tights or jeans/leggings. You really need one in your closet for these godawful winter months. Here are 17 to consider.
I don’t think much about Ashley Tisdale, except to remind myself that she is not the same person as Kaley Cuoco (I get them mixed up). But I might start paying more attention to her, because I am really feeling this funky outfit she wore late last week. You know I love me some wedge sneakers and a kicky mini. Get the look after the jump! Keep reading »
