Recycled Fashion, In Reverse

In the design world, we normally see materials re-purposed to make clothing or accessories. BCXSY, a Dutch design team, turns clothing into rugs. [T Magazine Blog] Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: L’Occitane Shea Butter Lip Balm

Few things make you feel more like a jerk than spending $10 on lip balm. As a recent and complete convert to that very practice, I speak from experience. But while forking over the cash for an item that I could more or less buy for $2 at CVS does require some resolve, my lips are thanking me for it. L’Occitane’s She Butter Lip Balm is all natural, smells amazing and lasts much longer than the drugstore brand without requiring reapplication. Though Burt’s Bees is a definite second place performance-wise (and costs only $3), L’Occitane’s balm is actually worth the extra $7 investment, especially if your lips gets really dry in the winter.

Gap And SF MoMA Tap Ed Ruscha, Other Artists For T-Shirt Collab

We’re loving us some artsy fartsy style today. The SF branch of MoMA has just released a series of artist-designed t-shirts in collaboration with the Gap to celebrate the museum’s 75th anniversary. The goods feature the work of some of our favorite artists like photographer Ed Rushcha, who made a color block address-book image, and Chris Johanson, who illustrated a museum-going family. Other participants include Simon Evans, Barry McGee, and Kerry James Marshall. The best part? They’re all under $25, so you can own a little piece of wearable art without breaking the bank. (Or pulling a Thomas Crown.) [SF MoMA Store via W Magazine Blog] Keep reading »

Quotable: Blogger Bravely Tests Labia Dye

I put the product on and let it sit as the instructions advised. Things were okay for a few seconds, and then … THE BURNING! I have certainly felt worse, but it was very noticeable. The instructions assure me that this burning is “due to the ingredients reacting to your bodies own PH balance which is normal and will go away upon rinsing off the colorant.”Rinse it off I did, and did I notice a difference? I did not. I will confess to you I took before and after pictures for my own scrutiny. Well hello there my vulva. Long time, no see. Sorry about the burning sensation … In summary, I would file this with magic creams that purport to take twenty years off: don’t bother. And don’t think so hard about your vulva, either. Just enjoy it.

Stanton James’ Drapey Ring

At first glance, this piece of jewelry looks like a necklace with the multiple hanging layered chains. But take a closer look and you’ll realize it’s a two-fingered ring, which expands to fit any size, and decorates not only your fingers but your whole hand. We’re loving that it’s totally on trend with the chain look, and the fact that you can convert it to wrap around your wrist means that it does double duty. Two new pieces of jewelry in one! If nothing else, it’s a great bar conversation starter. [$109, Stanton James] Keep reading »

DIY Lace Nails

It’s time to relinquish antiquated simple manicures and one-color nails. The world has already welcomed Minx styles, Calgel nails, and as soon as we spotted Lady Gaga‘s intricate nail design in her “Bad Romance” video, we knew that plain manicures were over forever. With the lace trend cavorting down the runways, a transition from clothes to nail design was a necessity. Celebrity manicurist Elle for Barielle recognized the need to share her nail wealth with lace fans all over, and provided The Frisky with a quick DIY so you too can have your very own lace nails. Read below for instructions! Keep reading »

Baby Animals Would Like To Snuggle With Your Old Fur Coat

Back in October, I wrote about my mixed feelings regarding a vintage fur purchase. Sometimes it’s difficult to reconcile a love for animals and fashion, and fur is one of the most obvious conflicts of interest. While the stylish side of me loves the look of a silky, gorgeous fur layered over a casual jeans and t-shirt ensemble, the animal rights activist in me knows that no matter how chic it may or may not look (totally debatable), it’s wrong. Ultimately, I’ve grown increasingly uncomfortable with its presence in my closet, and have come to the conclusion that even in the case of wearing a vintage piece, I simply don’t want to be a part of perpetuating the look of fur, period. Of course, now I’m stuck with this fancy old thing that I paid good money for. Luckily, I’ve stumbled upon the perfect solution.

Louis Vuitton Gets The Draw On The Uggs/Jimmy Choo Collaboration

Early this week we told you Uggs and Jimmy Choo are teaming up for a collaboration. And we used the power of Photoshop to imagine a pair of high-heeled Uggs. But lo and behold, Louis Vuitton already has a version of this shoe. Keep reading »

Granny Panties

I’m somewhat sorry to say that I gave up my thong panties along time ago. The truth is I only wore them once and that was enough for a lifetime as far as I am concerned. There is nothing sexy to me about having a ribbon of material stuck up my butt. It may sound cute or sexy, but it doesn’t feel cute or sexy. Know what I mean? I did get a thong because I had heard it would make me feel sexy, and it would get rid of the dreaded “panty line.” Uh huh. What is so wrong with a panty line? Or for that matter, if your panty line shows, the clothes are too damned tight for you! Keep reading »
