When it comes to T-Day, most of your effort goes towards figuring out (or stressing about) the meal. And hey, congrats! Cooking a turkey is no easy feat. But now you probably want to get all jolly and merry to celebrate your success. So what to drink? Whether you’re in charge of the booze yourself, or a guest at someone else’s Thanksgiving table (hey slacker, now you really have to bring it), here are a few suggestions for appropriate pairings, after the jump.

What are “Tron leggings,” you ask? According to Trend de la Creme, it’s a new style in body-skimming pants that (perhaps inadvertently) mimic the look in futuristic movies (à la “Tron Legacy,” which is the sci-fi flick coming out in 2010 based on the ’80s classic). Usually black, they feature studded patterns against a dark background that make your pants look like maybe there’s a computer or star ship tracking device in them. Available at large chains like French Connection, Bebe, and Topshop, apparently they’re making the rounds with the young folk. Keep reading »
Remember the controversy over Demi Moore’s W cover, in which it appeared that the magazine’s retouchers had photoshopped her hip to be thinner than her waist? Well, it turns out those bizarro proportions may actually belong to a real, live, breathing woman! The highly observant blogger behind Pop Culture Madness has noted that the body Demi’s head is on may actually belong to a model who wore the same dress in Balmain’s runway show.
“Check out what it appears to be 36 year old Anja Rubik’s superimposed body… scratch that – her body was attached to Demi Moore’s for the sake of a better cover image. You have to wonder, did Demi even wear the same Balmain dress?”
The image she presents as proof — Demi’s cover super-imposed over Rubik’s body — is startling. W claims that “nothing unusual” was done when retouching the cover image, but let’s face it: photoshopping the living hell out of images is par for the course these days. So what do you think? Shady or standard practice? [Pop Culture Madness] Keep reading »
I thought the ickiest things being sold on Etsy were those custom-made vagina portrait necklaces, but I was wrong. Now date rapists can get down to business in comfort and style with one of these super-snuggly Rohypnol pillows, from Etsy retailer GalacticBoutique! But, the seller warns, the pillows are not for consumption, as “they do not contain the necessary mood stablizing [sic] goodness found in controlled substances.” No matter. We’re sure she won’t care — when she wakes up. [Regretsy] Keep reading »
Olsen-designed luxury line The Row has released images from its Spring/Summer 2009 lookbook. Looks like Mary-Kate and Ashley went with a tribal theme to complement their collection of luxed-up basics. Is it just us, or do you find some of these photos kind of creepy? Some even seem to have religious references.
Unlike other celeb lines, The Row has maintained success and acclaim by distancing itself from the Olsen name. Yet, we have to wonder, wouldn’t it just be better if MK and Ash modeled this stuff themselves? Everyone wants their wardrobes anyhow, they’re pretty girls, and the product is good. So what’s with the artsy-fartsy stuff? Check out some more pics from The Row’s line after the jump. [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »
Obsessed with Polaroids? Well, in case you’re not sated by the original art form, then open your mind to the iconic white border in jewelry form as the Polaroid meets your ring finger. Fill in the slot with a teeny tiny picture of anything you wish, and all of the sudden, your ring is a perfect frame. We’re devastated to find it’s already sold out, so here’s wishing for the creator to get busy making more. Check here for the status … [CNet] Keep reading »
Thanks to Marc Jacobs’ fall show, the mother trend of the ’80s — acid washed jeans — is back. When I saw the models come down the runway, I lived in fear of the coming street translation. But Olga here has put my mind at ease. Her chic take on the revived look (Theory blazer, Federation jeans, and Mimco necklaces) kind of makes me want to break out the Bon Jovi tunes. Keep reading »
Running in heels is a talent — one which my boyfriend is very happy that I possess, because somehow we’re always running late. But I never knew that my skill could earn me prizes. I also never heard about the National Stiletto Championship run. Boy, I was missing out. Over the weekend, 96 women took to the streets of Paris for the marathon in heels at least three inches high to show their running skills. Over a course of 196 yards, they competed for the chance to earn over 3,000 Euros worth of shoes. So, when you think about it, ruining one pair for countless others is totally worth it. Yes, there is always the potential for stiletto accidents, but never fear, the Red Cross was on the sidelines watching for heel-related injuries. Get to practicing for next year!

OK, so here it is: I can’t stand when people wear giant necklaces with strapless dresses. It just doesn’t make sense—you go to all that trouble to wear a strapless dress to show off your pretty skin and shoulders and collarbone and then what do you do? Throw a necklace over all the bits that you’re trying to show off! Check out Natalie Portman, above — doesn’t she look chic and double-take gorgeous? It’s not because of her dress—though the dress is seriously lovely—it’s because you can’t take your eyes off of her. And why can you actually see purdy Natalie? Because she didn’t cover it all up with a big, honking necklace! Do you guys agree? Granted, I’m mostly a less is more kind of gal, but still—when I take the trouble to take care of my skin and wear a strapless cocktail dress, it’s because I want people looking at me. Not my choice of accessories. I’m done now, thanks. Keep reading »
