Shh, we’re going to let you in on a secret … It’s OK to recycle your black, brown, and beige boots from last fall and winter if you like them. OK, so now that you’re covered on the neutral footwear front, we’d like you to take a look at these colorful high-heel and flat ankle boots. They’re an easy way to transition from fall to winter, will add some color to your look, and fight the gray day blues.
It should come as no surprise that The Frisky staff is fairly obsessed with “Office” writer and star Mindy Kaling. It’s not just that we love her ridiculous portrayal of Kelly Kapoor, but we think it’s seriously great that she’s emerged as one of the smartest and sassiest female television writers around. We can’t wait for her new book, Is Everybody Hanging Out Without Me?, to hit the shelves this November, so in the meantime, we’ve been tiding ourselves over with her blog, The Concerns of Mindy Kaling. This isn’t Kaling’s first stab at putting her random thoughts on the internet — she used to write a blog called Things I’ve Bought That I Love, but gave it up when her day job (heh heh) became more demanding. We’re happy to see that she’s back on track now, chronicling her fave sandwiches, shorts and jewelry in signature funny girl form. [The Concerns of Mindy Kaling]
This week, we’ve been bringing you easy peasy costumes inspired by your fave reality TV shows. But enough with the ladies—it’s time for a dude. Why not be Jeff Medolla, aka The Mask from Ashley Hebert‘s season of “The Bachelorette?” His costume is easy—like, seriously easy. At a minimum, you need a rose and a mask, or you can go all out as highlighted after the jump. Really, the hardest part of this costume is admitting that you watch “The Bachelorette.” But then again, anyone who spots your costume will have just outed themselves as a “Bachelor” watcher, too, so it’s all good.

So this is what the Olsen twins — Mary-Kate and Ashley — apparently think constitutes a Halloween costume. The pair dressed up — with venti latte cups-as-light-sabers in tow — as part of a new Halloween-ie video for their T-shirt company Stylemint. Even with the helmets on, the sisters manage to convey a languid boredom and over-it-ness that we’ve come to expect from them. Remember, you can never be too rich, too thin, or too Vader-y.

Need to amp up your game when you bat your lashes at that cutie at the bar? We could never pull off false eyelashes because we are terrified of slicing our cornea open. But you should try these funky falsies from PAPERSELF. Each set is a paper-cut pattern inspired by the art of Chinese paper-cutting. There is a deer and butterfly pattern, a peacock, peach blossoms, and a seascape with fish and seahorses. Trust us, they’re subtle. (And don’t forget the eyelash adhesive sold separately!)
Teen bride Courtney Stodden, who single-handedly keeps the frosted lipstick industry afloat, supposedly set up that beach romp photo shoot to prove to the world that her assets — i.e. her globe-like breasts — are real. But my eyes were immediately drawn to another area of her body — those abs. While I suppose there is a teeeeeeny tiny chance that six-pack is the result of going daily super sexy sensual crunching exercises, they look spray-tanned on to me. Give me a hose and I will prove it! And when I’m done with her, I’ll take down these 20 other celebrities who got a little overzealous with the spray tanner.
