Happy Tuesday, Frisky readers! By way of introduction to “What Are We Wearing?” from now on, I’m going to try and share something somewhat
silly revealing about each member of the (regular) staff. For example, I spend a lot of my non-work hours surfing the web (I am a real party animal, what can I say) and I often come across links that I just have to pass along to someone on staff that is in their particular area of interest. I send links about pandas and spanking (not usually in the same story) to Jessica; Julie gets Occupy Wall Street stories, Joseph Gordon Levitt gossip/photos, and funny cat memes; and Ami is the recipient of every ridiculous celeb photo I find, or, if I am feeling wicked, YouTube videos that feature cats doing weird things since she hates them. In return, they send me links about Ryan Gosling and dogs. Oh, and Ami loves to send me links to gross porno GIFs. This is how your Frisky sausage gets made, folks. Click onward to see what we’re wearing today!
Winter is on its way, which means all of us ladies are at risk for mistaking leggings for pants. But there’s hope! Three shots of Uggcitrin, the only vaccine for the Uggs boot virus, can protect you from purchasing oversized elephant shoes forever. Unfortunately, it does not protect you from Uggs if you already own a pair.
What are you waiting for? Get your Uggcitrin vaccine today! (P.S. I don’t care if other people think they’re ugly — I still desperately want a pair of Uggs anyway.) [NYmag.com] Keep reading »
You’re going to be seeing a whole heck of a lot more Miss Piggy soon. That’s because she’s got a big role in the newest Muppets movie (out this November). In it, she plays a high-powered editor at French Vogue – and she has the wardrobe to match. In a new spread for InStyle, Miss Piggy was outfitted in the finest garments from designers like Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu and Brian Atwood. “Her humor, flamboyance and joie de vivre inspired me to design a decadent feathered dress that features her most sensational qualities,” said Wu.

I’m gonna be straight up; my version of this costume is not going to win you any awards at Comic-Con where real cosplayers hand-make their garb from scratch. Do you know how hard I looked for a burlap (and jute and hemp) corseted crop top? So hard. All that being said, I was determined to do this Inspiration Board because I knew one of the coolest characters from this year has absolutely been the bad ass Daenerys Targaryen from “Game of Thrones.” And talk about sexy! Bonus points if you get your man to dress up like Khal Drogo, especially if you have a man that you can pull of that hunk of sexy warrior meat. (Sorry, putting my nerdy girl boner away.) Anyway, check out how to get the look this Halloween, if you’re not willing to spend the next two weeks sewing your own costume out of a burlap sack. Keep reading »
You wake up in a stupor. You think: Where is my scarf-covered microphone stand? Where are my platform man-boots? My feathered hair? My deep-v jumpsuit and coordinated leather earrings? And then you remember: I’m not Steven Tyler, and your world comes crashing down. But! Oh! Now, at least, you can dress like you’re an aging rock star grasping onto the last vestiges of his former cool! Tyler’s new line — called Andrew Charles — is a collaboration with Andy and Tommy Hilfiger (whaaaaaaat?), and can be found at Macy’s. [ABC News Radio]
Not to brag, but I am currently smoking Ami in Words With Friends. The Scrabble-based game is my current favorite time-waster and in addition to playing against Ami, I’m also squaring off against Julie, John DeVore (who keeps resigning because he says he doesn’t like his letters), and a bunch of other friends. Yeah, so, sometimes I lose (okay, at least 50 percent of the time), but on those occasions when I actually win, ahh, the victory is so, so sweet. Do you think it would be considered poor sportsmanship to celebrate my triumph by drinking out of this sweet Scrabble mug in front of those I’ve conquered? Ahh, who cares. Doin’ it.
