5 Reasons To Organize Your Closet This Weekend

As I confessed last week, I am a slob, which means my closet usually looks slightly more messy than planet Earth in “Wall-E.” Thanks to a hectic schedule these past couple of weeks, my closet is particularly nightmare-ish right now, but you know what? I’m organizing it this weekend. And I’d love for you to join me. In your own closets, that is. (I mean, you’re welcome to help me in mine but it’s rather small and I’m not sure you’re ready for what we might find in there.) Just in case you need a bit more motivation, here are five benefits to tackling the project… Keep reading »

Nivea Apologizes For Racist “Re-Civilize Yourself” Picturing Black Man

This Week in Racially Insensitive Advertising News: the skin care company Nivea was forced to apologize yesterday after people objected to an ad that ran in the men’s magazine Esquire. The ad depicts a handsome, well-dressed black man holding a black, Afro-ed and bearded head in his hands, preparing to throw it into the distance, with the words “Look Like You Give A Damn: Re-Civilize Yourself.” Keep reading »

Civilization Is Crumbling: “Jeggings” Added To The Oxford English Dictionary

Guys, we have some problems. The list of new words in the 2011 Oxford English Dictionary is out, and not only has “jegging” made the cut, but “mankini” is also now officially an acceptable term. A couple of other disturbing non-fashion words that passed muster? “Cyberbullying,” “sexting,” and “retweet.” It’s not so much that we object to the words entering the dictionary–it’s more that “jegging” and “mankini” being acknowledged by Oxford means that they are real things that are likely going to be around for a long time. Yes, thanks to Borat’s lime green almost-bare bathing suit, we’ve now got an official word for when men wear inappropriate and weird lady bathing suits. Welcome to your sartorial nightmare, future, now officially a real thing, thanks to the dictionary. [Mirror.co.uk] Keep reading »

Chanel Does Denim — For Nails

You were thinking, My life isn’t matchy-matchy enough. You were thinking, But denim goes with everything. You were thinking, When will someone create a nail polish that plays off the glorious tones of my new J. Brand jeans? Chanel is on to you, and has come up with Les Jeans de Chanel, three glorious shades of denim-inspired polish. The three new shades — Blue Rebel, Coco Blue and Blue Boy — will launch on September 8, concurrent with Fashion’s Night Out. But you’ll have to get your Chanel shade fix quick: the colors will only be on offer until the end of September. Now that’s kind of giving us the blues. [Racked] Keep reading »

Infographic: What Your Bra Says About You (On A Date)

Hey ladies! (And some dudes!) In honor of Bra Recycling Month (this is an actual, real thing and not just some creepy internet guy trying to get you to send him your old bras) we’re addressing that age-old question: If you hook up on a date, what can a guy tell about you from your choice in bra?

As it turns out, if you obsess about which over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder to pull from the ol’ bra(wer) drawer, you’re totally justified. We can tell quite a bit about you from the type of breast support you rely on. Keep reading »

Much More Than Your Average Tube Sock

I’ve hated wearing (and sorting) socks for years now because I find tube socks too bulky, binding, and boring. But after my recent introduction to Sock it to Me socks, I found myself trying to style a whole look that shows off the Chat Noir design. I love the wry smirk of the cat and the overall sinister feel of the socks. But if cats aren’t your thing, I bet Sock it to Me has a design that is … whether it be birds, eyeglasses, mustaches, skulls, or roller derby stripes — there’s something for every woman, man, and child!
