St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow, which means we should all start mentally preparing ourselves to see herds of adults in tacky drinking T-shirts and shot glass necklaces. Newsflash: dressing like an ass is not a requirement for celebrating St. Paddy’s Day. There are tons of ways to add some festive fun to your attire without going overboard or looking like a leprechaun threw up on you. Check out some non-tacky, green must haves to make your March 17th outfit pop. Cheers!
This spring, fashion is all about the daring cuts. If you’d rather flash a little leg than a little midriff, consider the high slit trend. Maxi skirts and dresses with high slits are coming in an array of fabrics and patterns, for occasions both casual and formal. To avoid pulling a Paris Hilton and flashing your mons pubis, go for slits that are off to the side and not so high that they’re cuttin’ it close. Here are 10 high-slit maxi skirts that will flash a lot of leg…
If there’s any three-word phrase that can instantly calm my control freak, perfectionist self, it’s “Let it be.” I love the sentiment. I love the song. And I really love this beautiful pendant necklace, made with hand-drawn chalk art. Isn’t that lettering dreamy? If you like the necklace but hate The Beatles (I met someone once who hated The Beatles, so I know you weirdos exist), check out the rest of this Etsy shop’s gorgeous chalkboard art jewelry. There’s definitely something for everyone! [$30, CuffLoves]
Crazy good? Crazy cool? Crazy smart? Crazy beautiful? Crazy stupid? Crazy amazing? Crazy high? Crazy ugly? Crazy funny? Or just crazy crazy? Because I could always get the Ryan Gosling Collage T-Shirt instead. Please advise! [£48, La La Land]
I’ll be honest, a leather midi skirt sounds like a recipe for butt sweat to me, but I’d be willing to deal (and perhaps prep my backside with some baby powder) for an outfit as frickin’ hot and chic as this ensemble Mandy Moore is wearing. Do you think Mandy Moore gets butt sweat? I bet not. Whatever. Get the look and the butt sweat for yourself with my recreation, details for which are after the jump! Keep reading »
Fashion photographer Terry Richardson has released a statement (posted to at least Page Six and Huffington Post, so far) defending himself against the mounting complaints from young models who have accused the “porno-chic” photog of sexual abuse.
Earlier this week, a former model revealed on Reddit that she was allegedly sexually assaulted by Richardson at a photoshoot when she was 19. She later identified herself as 24-year-old Charlotte Waters and she is just one of many young models to speak out about his eerily-similar inappropriate behavior with young women. In 2010, Danish model Rie Rasmussen publicly confronted Richardson about allegedly abusing young models and Jezebel has gathered numerous stories of abuse from models and stylists here. (Styleite has a comprehensive timeline of Terry’s creepy behavior here.)
Richardson lashed out against the “witch hunt,” calling the “false allegations” nothing more than “Internet gossip.” Keep reading »
Now that the weather’s warming up, all kinds of markets and arts & crafts fairs are popping up all over. Since half of the Astrology 101 writing team (ahem, Katelyn) just happens to make and sell amazing wood art at one such market in Portland (Saturday Market, represent!), we thought it was the perfect opportunity to discuss how to spot each sign at these creative marketplaces.

Hi guys, I have something important to announce. I am officially declaring war on the War On Women Eating Starch. Okay, so there’s not an official War On Women Eating Starch, I’ve just noticed that a lot of the women I know never eat potatoes. It seems to be a weight thing, because potatoes are heavy and don’t have a heck of a lot of nutritional value, and it’s been baked, heh, into us to, like, worry about our weight every time we put something in our mouths. As a result, I see a lot of women I know asking for a side salad instead of fries, or brown rice instead of mashed potatoes, and I’m like, “LADIES, I’m not saying you need to hoover a casserole dish full of scalloped potatoes into your piehole for every meal, but life is meant to be lived!” And you are not living if you don’t let yourself eat some form of potato on at least a semi regular basis. So join me in taking back potatoes, be they mashed, gratin-ed, twice-baked or deep fried, with one of these yummy recipes.
The crop top trend can be pretty intimidating, but don’t let a little midriff scare you. Matching crop top and skirt sets appeared all over the runways of fashion week and are a major trend this spring. I recommend keeping the shapes structured and the midriff exposure to a minimal sexy peek. Here are 11 crop top and skirt sets I’m jonesing for…
