During last night’s episode of “Single Ladies,” I was transfixed by Stacey Dash’s hard nipples on more than one occasion. Her nipples were sticking out of her thin dresses, and it was possible to distinguish between the actual nipple and the aureole. (I told you I was focused.) I don’t think this was an accident. I haven’t noticed Dash’s nipples during any of the previous episodes, so I think the producers and wardrobe remembered the fervor “Sex and the City” created over those faux nipples back in the day, and decided to employ the same trick.

Over the weekend, whilst laying out at the beach, Amelia and I were looking at a fashion magazine with a spread on dressing for your body type — you know, like chicks do during the summer. But, striving to be “different,” the mag had chosen the dumbest new names for the featured figures. You could be a dewdrop! Or a flute! What did that even mean??? We thought it would be more appropriate to name our body types based on some of our favorite snack foods instead. So without further ado, “The Frisky Guide To Dressing For Your Body Type,” be it cheese puff, sundae, soda bottle, or lollipop. Feel like your body type isn’t represented? No worries — we’re planning a part two, so please tell us any body types we’re missing in the comments! (Feel free to call ‘em what you want…)
Two years ago, I got my fifth tattoo, a large red and black crown on the back of my neck. I went home to visit my parents and was stunned by the lack of commentary. Eventually, I just had to ask.
“Mom, did you see my new tattoo?”
“Yes. It’s … big.” Clearly, she’d made an uneasy peace with the idea that her daughter loves ink. Keep reading »
Cast of Vices’ ‘Corner Store’ Leather Shopper takes the plastic “thank you” bag way uptown. This bag is, if you will, the high class hooker version of a plastic bag. And as you might imagine, Cast of Vices bags are, of course, more expensive then your typical corner store bag–they run between $178-$218 each. I’ll take a cloth tote, instead, thanks. [$178-$218, Cast of Vices] Keep reading »
Wedge sandals are a huge trend right now, and many pairs include obvious nods to 1970s footwear: chunky platforms, wood heels, brown leather, gold accents, crochet details, etc. One of my favorite summer looks is chunky vintage-style sandals with a breezy sundress; it’s such a simple and flattering combination. Click through for some super cute, super ’70s-inspired sandals that fit the bill — all for less than a hundred bucks…
Lily Allen and her sister Sarah Owen have collaborated on Lucy in Disguise, a modern take on retro style clothing. As owners of a vintage store of the same name, the sisters definitely know about fashions from decades past. But their Haight & Ashbury Dress confuses us because we don’t know anyone who wants to spend $240 to dress like an ethereal wench. We suspect that folks who enjoy Renaissance faires shell out that much money and more for their costumes, but at least those are appropriate for the period. The Haight & Ashbury Dress isn’t even appropriate for the rest of the collection, which also features leopard-print and bandana fabrics. Keep reading »
