Not This Crap Again: Girl Kicked Out Of Prom For Wearing Pants

shafer rupard

A North Carolina high school senior was kicked out of her high school prom not because she was sneaking booze, not because she was humping on the dance floor, but because she was wearing pants.

Shafer Rupard from  Cherryville, North Carolina, showed up to her prom rocking her adorable Justin Bieber-esque haircut and wearing red skinny jeans, a leather jacket and a hat. She was allowed into the Senior Prom at Cherryville Golf & Country Club, but then was approached on the dance floor by a teacher and asked to leave. Keep reading »

April 24: What Are We Wearing Today? (#InsideOut Edition!)

As Winona wrote earlier today, it’s Fashion Revolution Day! In an effort to call attention to the disconnect between what we buy and who makes it, we decided to all turn our shirts #InsideOut for this special edition of What Are We Wearing Today? We’ll also be tweeting these pics to the various brands’ attention, asking them, “Who made my clothes?” Click onward!

7 Vacation Destinations To Wild Out With Your Girl Friends

The cavalier girl clan (Leslie Mann + Cameron Diaz + Kate Upton + Nicki Minaj = stoked) in the new film “The Other Woman” (in theaters April 25th — check out the trailer after the jump!) has us reminiscing about our love (nay, dire need) for booze, beautiful men, and bonding time with our best friends, all while enjoying some amazing, luxurious destination. Yes, we need all of that, more of the time … but especially that last one. Now, where’s that suitcase?

When we plan the occasional (completely necessary) lavish getaway with our best girls, there are a few “must-have” determining factors when deciding where to book it.

The destinations in this gallery are our top picks to “let loose and get wild” with your gal pals, as calculated from the algorithm presented by the delicate matrix of factors below:

  • Booze: Let’s get drunk.
  • Men: Preferably lots, and preferably beautiful.
  • Shopping: We want to buy cool shit (ex. Co-worker asks: “Where did you get that boho chic bag?” Reply: “Oh, just from this one-of-a-kind vendor in Aruba with my best girls”).
  • Relaxation: Sun, beach, spa, all of the things. Yes, please.
  • Photo Opp Potential: Because it doesn’t really matter unless it’s all over social media, making people jealous.

Introducing Barbell Denim: The “Anti-Thigh Gap” Jeans

As anyone who has ever not been able to pull a pair of jeans up higher than their knee can tell you: skinny jeans and most current cuts of denim are certainly not made for people whose thighs are larger than, say, a salami. Athletes, especially, struggle with finding flattering, comfortable jeans that properly fit their muscular legs. A group of gym rats in Nevada decided to do something to change that, so they started Barbell Apparel, a premium denim company that makes what they call, “the anti-thigh gap jeans.” Made specially to accommodate muscular thighs, with a bit of stretch and quality construction, Barbell tested the demand for their product with a Kickstarter page. Their goal was to raise $15,000 to get things up and running. So far, they’ve raised $312,000 and counting. Hmm … apparently this was a long overdue idea or something? I’m very excited to see the finished product and how, if at all, mainstream denim brands will respond to Barbell’s instant popularity. Want to know more? Check out Barbell’s Kickstarter video after the jump!

Style Guide: 5 Wedding Dress Trends

5 tips for making your own wedding bouquet. Read More »

As a child, whenever I closed my eyes every wedding dress looked the same: a strapless ball gown, with a long white veil. (Maybe that was the dress my Barbie came with?)  In reality, wedding dresses (or jumpsuits) come in many shapes, sizes, and fabrics, the unique beauty of each being in the details.

I was lucky enough to be invited to David’s Bridal and Zac Posen’s fall previews and I have to say the dresses were stunning. As a married woman, I found myself pining to get married all over again just because of the all the potential fashion moments! Then Katie kicked me in the shin and told me to leave some wedding dresses for the single ladies.

Unfortunately many of our favorites won’t be available until Fall 2014, but here are some examples of our favorite dress trends.

Today is the one year anniversary of the tragic collapse of Rana Plaza, a garment factory in Savar, Bangladesh. Over 1,100 workers died in the collapse, and more than 2,500 were severely injured, making it the deadliest garment factory “accident” in history. I’m putting “accident” in quotes because the fact is this tragedy was completely preventable. The building, which was never zoned for factory use, was crammed with heavy machinery and crowded with workers, frantically trying to keep up with the impossibly rushed production cycle of fast fashion retailers in America and Europe. If we don’t want to see a repeat of Rana Plaza, something needs to change.

To mark this somber anniversary and kick off a call for change in the fashion industry, today has been branded Fashion Revolution Day. This year’s FRD theme is transparency. Here’s an excerpt from the official website: Keep reading »

FYI, Rumer Willis, Cool Dress, But We Can See Your Underwear Or Vag Shield Or Whatever

Daring look Rumer Willis wore to the ELLE Women In Music Concert huh? But is it too daring? Considering I just spent the last five minutes debating with a friend whether that pink peeking through is Rumer’s undies or some sort of VAGINAL SHIELD, I would say so. Or maybe it’s not revealing enough, as the mons pubis is still very in for spring 2014. [Photo: Splash News]

Beauty Test Drive: Pixi Cheek Sheen

Jessica Loves Pixi's Cheek Sheen!

UPDATE, 12:30p.m.:  Oh no! We regret to inform you that Pixi has gotten in touch with us say these new Cheeks Stains from the brand’s spring line won’t be produced, due to production issues. If you’re jonesing for a similar look, you may want to try Pixi’s Sheer Cheek Gel instead.

Nothing against makeup brushes, but they’re kind of a pain in the butt to clean. Any way I can, I prefer to use beauty products in stick form, which can be applied directly onto my face. That’s why — in addition to the versatile and flattering colors — I was extremely interested in the Pixi Cheek Sheen from Target. (Sorry, Tar-jay.) Keep reading »

Hi/Lo: Varsity Sweater

Hi/Lo: Varsity Sweater

See that varsity tennis sweater on the left? It’s by Rag & Bone (or is it “rag & bone”? I dunno) and it is THE IT SWEATER of the season. Various fashion magazines told me so and then I’ve seen it on at least five celebrities in the last few weeks. But it is so expensive. Stupidly expensive really, which is why it’s great that those clever folks at Nasty Gal made a straight up rip-off for 85 percent less. Love? LOVE. (Plus, check out more varsity fashion below!)
