This has been the summer of strange bikini waxing experiences. First, a waxer I found through a Living Social deal was a double-dipper. Then last week, I tried another waxer, who I found through Groupon. I had a rather pleasant experience, but something the esthetician said has confused me, and I’m not sure if I should be insulted or thankful she was trying to help me. Keep reading »
Last week, I bought new pants. And while that may sound like a mind-numbingly mundane act to you, believe me when I say that the earth shook a little. I haven’t purchased new pants in over three years. I’ve worn them on occasion, sure, and have several pairs languishing in the dark recesses of my closet. But overall, I’ve shied away from wearing jeans, slacks, and pants of all kinds ever since I discovered the fun, flattering, flirty world of skirts and dresses. Skirts work with my figure.

Looking to expand your denim wardrobe without spending a ton of money? A pair of jeans that do triple duty, like Gap’s 1969 pintucked trouser jeans — part of their “LA Story” campaign — ought to do the trick. The high-waist and flared leg are totally on trend, the dark wash and trouser cut are office-appropriate, and, of course, denim can be styled to suit almost any occasion. Dress them up with heels and a cute top, go casual with boots and a sweater, and conduct serious biz by pairing them with a buttondown and blazer. One pair of jeans that go with everything? And did I mention they’re on sale? Yes please!
Gone are the days when the “Jersey Shore” cast wore Ed Hardy Ts soaked in Long Island iced tea-scented barf. Now they’re moving up in the world and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino struts his stuff in “aspirational” brands like Abercrombie & Fitch. In its most recent episode, The Situation was seen wearing neon green Abercrombie & Fitch sweatpants on the streets of Florence, no doubt whilst doing something sketchy. Can you guess who is not too pleased about this free PR? Yup, Abercrombie & Fitch. Keep reading »
