Hangin’ Tough … With A New Kids On The Block Homemade Sweater

Necessity, and extreme fandom, are the mothers of invention, right? That’s exactly what prompted German mom Joanne Conklin to knit these totally out of control New Kids on the Block and Vanilla Ice sweaters for her teenage daughter. Before she knew it, she’d launched a full on NKOTB knitwear empire. “We were living in Germany at the time and bands like New Kids On The Block were huge with the teen set,” says Joanne. “However, there were no fan T-shirts to be found anywhere, so I decided to knit sweaters. I made one for my daughter, then her friends, and word-of-mouth spread and the next thing you know I’d knit over a hundred of them, selling all but about six of them.” And you can understand why. After all, these are no mere cableknit jawns [This will be the last time I allow Julie to use her obscure Philly slang in a post, FYI. -- Editor], but rather, works of Joey McIntyre-inspired magic. More sweater bliss after the jump! [Craftzine] Keep reading »

A Litter Box With A Good Look

As you might have noticed from my “What Are We Wearing?” post last Friday, I am the proud owner of a monster cat named Colonel Mustard. I also have a less monster-ed but still epically large cat named Pony. They are both big-boned and, okay, eat quite a bit, and as such, they both poop — a lot. And the Colonel does not understand the concept of burying his poop; he’s a weirdo, I know. The sleek, well-designed and super efficient litter boxes from ModKat are heads and cat tails above your standard pet store box. And they come with a reusable inner liner! Sadly, I’m a bit too poor to be throwing $180 away on a litter box right now, but a girl can dream (of litter boxes) can’t she?

Shopping Guide: Long & Lovely Necklaces

Long necklaces are a magical part of the jewelry kingdom. They’re great for layering with other necklaces, look striking on their own, and — fun fact! — the long vertical line they create can actually have a slimming effect. Add one to a little black dress, for example, and oh man will you look like a tall drink of water. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites that measure at least 24″ long and cost less than $50. Click through to check them out, and remember, contrary to what some stores would have you believe, a necklace is not a shirt.

This Is What Happens When You Pose Like A Model In Public


Filmmaker Yolanda Dominguez decided to see what would happen if real women posed like fashion models. In public. And then she filmed the reactions of passersby. The result is both hilarious (at one point, a concerned McDonald’s employee comes to check on a woman who seems to have glued her clutch to her forehead) and intriguing. If you read a lot of fashion magazines, even the most contorted poses start to look familiar and even normal. It’s pretty jarring to see them taken out of context, and I think it says a lot about the way the fashion world views women. Check it out and let us know what you think! [YouTube] Keep reading »

Was My Bikini Waxer Trying To Be Insulting Or Helpful?

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 »
