The second step is getting over that hangover. [$79.99, Staples] Keep reading »

Rage Against The Machine—Vending For Anger Management

Thanks to the automat, some people thought that in the future, everything would come out of vending machines. This seems to be a partial reality seeing as fashion vending machines are very in vogue, and you can buy digital cameras out of them in the airport. Now, you can also get therapy through the coin slot with this Anger Release Machine. A creation of two Central Saint Martins art school students, the device doles out porcelain objects made for smashing. The commodification of rage release? Only flaw here is what happens when your purchase gets stuck, and you can’t shake it loose? Not quite the best way to obliterate anger. [Blog.Urbanoutfitters.com] Keep reading »

The Brief Is Back

According to the New York Times (and they’ve been on a real roll this week), when it comes to the male undies category, it’s all about the brief. When did the reign of the boxer come to an end exactly? It’s impossible to be certain, but it could have something to do with the recession: “A few years ago, brands started coming out with more and more collections and retiring them sooner,” said Michael Kleinmann, the president of Freshpair, a 10-year-old online underwear retailer. “But when the economy started changing, they scaled it back.” Whatever the reason, according to our rather epic post, “What His Underwear Says About Him,” this is a style favored by Tom Cruise, military types and hipsters. Now we can add fashion-forward gents to the list, too. [New York Times]

What Are You Wearing For New Year’s Eve?

After way more time than I care to admit, I finally found a dress to wear tonight at the little New Year’s Eve get-together I’m hosting. In honor of tonight’s blue moon, I decided on this blue dress from French Connection. OK, full disclosure: I didn’t actually make the blue moon connection until after I purchased the dress, but seeing as my husband will be wearing his fabulous baby blue tuxedo purchased a couple months ago at a vintage sale, I think we can successfully claim a blue moon theme. I’m going to pair the dress with this necklace, opaque tights, and black patent leather heels, and if I can manage to get a good picture, I’ll post it next week. But, more important, what are you wearing tonight? We’d love to see you all gussied up in your New Year’s best, so send us a photo (tips@thefrisky.com) and we’ll put together a slideshow next week like the one we did for your awesome Halloween costumes. Have a safe and wonderful new year, everyone! Keep reading »

Cassette Tape Tie

OK, so it’s a little pricey for a tie, but pretty cool once you take a closer look. No, ladies and gentlemen, that tie is not made of mere fabric; it’s actually a whole lot of recycled cassette tape.This strikes us as the perfect gift for that music lover who “has everything” because, let’s face it, there’s a good chance he does not in fact have this.
