You guys, the sky WILL NOT STOP raining. Like, every day now. It starts out beautiful and then by 4 PM it’s pouring and my hair is gross. Get it together, weather! Anyway, we are all dressed to varying degrees of … weather-inappropriateness. Ch-ch-check it out.
Earlier this year, blogger Gabi Fresh made waves when she collaborated with Swimsuits for All to launch the Fatkini. Inspired by the Harmony Korine movie “Spring Breakers,” Fresh’s collection is full of bold, bright color and fun styles. “I wanted to give [plus-size women] cuter things,” Fresh explained in an interview with The Daily Beast. “All I want for us is to have the same ability to go shopping like everyone else and have those options available.”
We loved her designs, and wanted to find a bunch more cool plus-size bikinis, but it proved a more difficult undertaking than we thought. Even go-to plus-size retailers seem to be shilling belly-covering tankinis in place of straight up bikinis. To me, the relative dearth of plus-size bikini options speaks to a larger notion — seemingly even prevalent in the plus sizde marketplace — that bigger women should cover up their bellies and be ashamed of the way their stomachs look. But plus-size women should have an equal opportunity to show off their curves in bikinis that fit and flatter them, too.
Thankfully, more and more plus-size clothiers are catching on. We found nine totally awesome plus-size bikinis that’ll look great on every beach.
Japanese beauty products are wild, man. They are at once super futuristic but also hopelessly outdated. Like if Betty Draper met “Tron” or something — you’d be wearing a crazy space suit but worried about “reducing” and “slimming your figure.” I’m totally fascinated by these things, and I’d be lying if I didn’t say that I pretty much would buy all of this crap if my budget allowed. Who doesn’t want a $4,000 animatronic seal, you guys? Or a bizarre medieval face-stretching device? This stuff is the coolest!
Check out 10 of our favorite bizarre beauty products from the Japan Trend Shop above.
Fashion thrives on controversy in all of its many manifestations, but how far is too far? VICE, which has been distributing its fair share of maybe-too-much content since 1994, wants to test your limits. The free monthly magazine’s largely self-explanatory Women in Fiction issue brings us “Lost Words,” a fashion spread featuring models styled and posed as beloved female writers who have killed themselves, during the act of killing themselves.

Today’s weather report is brought to you by eight Frisky staffers/interns, all decked out in dresses and skirts, which means it’s blissfully balmy. Click on to see what we’re wearing on this perfectly temperatured June day…
Proving once and for all that you can wear prints upon prints, Heidi Klum stepped out in an all-stripes ensemble for an appearance on “The Today Show.” Here’s one small rule for pulling this look off — the size of the stripes should vary. For example, Heidi’s skirt has a wide stripe, while her blouse has a thinner stripe, breaking the two pieces up and creating balance. I never met a stripe I didn’t like, so I am quite relieved Heidi has officially confirmed that I can wear more than one at once. Thanks for being a friend, Heidi. Find out how to get the look — including Miss Klum’s cool accessories — after the jump! Keep reading »
My best friend has a hot, super short haircut. Instead of spending a fortune getting it cut at the hairdresser every month, she gets an expensive haircut every six months and supplements that with $14 “cleanups” at her local barber shop. She’s invited me to join her several times by telling me how “amazing” it is. I’ve always replied with, “Not my scene.” To which she’s said, “You’re missing out.” Keep reading »
Sometimes things just come together in a totally simpatico way. Take, for instance, this new street style video series called “Nailin’ It” that my friend Patrick worked on. Despite NYC being a city of, like, eight million people, who do Patrick and show host Ross Erin pick to appear in their segment on New York style and fashion? None other than our own Simcha “Miss Pop” Whitehill! Amelia and I spotted her in this little vid, sporting her trademark quiff, looking cool as hell. We love this video not just because of the amazing coincidence of our nail art guru Simcha randomly appearing in a video called “Nailin’ It” (I mean, seriously), but because it shows that amazing fashion comes in so many shapes and styles.

Just in time for Father’s Day, last night’s TV schedule featured the Miss USA competition and the Daytime Emmys, both bastions of typical dude fascination. Right.
At the Daytime Emmys, “Days of Our Lives” and “The Price is Right” were both big winners, while Ellen DeGeneres took the honor for top daytime talk show. There were tons of soap stars attendance, though too few “Real Housewives” for my taste. I mean, you’re telling me Ramona Singer had something better to do last night. As if!
Anyway, you can check out what everybody wore in the gallery above!
Miss New Jersey, a competitor in Sunday night’s Miss USA pageant, is a beautiful woman, that’s pretty obvious. But even so, the one thing that’s most noticeable to us is her weird — whatdoyoucallit? — front butt. In this photo, and several others from the night, it appears that Miss NJ’s butt is in the front. How is this possible? We’ve seen other photos of her in different gowns and no front butt, so it’s gotta be an awkward cut of the dress, right? Right?
