And the crazy winner this week is: Rihanna, who wore this almost-not-there-at-all getup to the Crop Over festival in her native Barbados. Following behind her, Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry’s pink hair transition, Mischa Barton’s Sgt. Pepper ensemble, and Kate Bosworth’s nerdy white-on-white look. Check back next week for more strange fashions! Keep reading »
And now a pubic service announcement from everybody’s favorite bra bitch, Brianna! Happy Friday from Pantyland! Mine started in a bunch after reading a tweet that contained my two favorite things: Rob Kardashian and underwear. Even though he looks like an overgrown 10-year-old who’s allowed to drink beer, I have a soft spot in my, um, heart for the only Kardashian with a Y chromosome. And I needn’t even elaborate on my love for all things intimate. Mr. K, as he’s known in most of my fantasies, tweeted: “So u girls are only allowed to wear undies … good thing u can get them here” and the “here” led to Freshpair, where it’s National Underwear Day. Like, now. Today. But the cool part is that they’re “celebrating” by giving away 5,000 “fresh pairs” for free. Angels, I tell you. Angels. My squeals of glee, however, quickly turned to disgust when I read WHY they’re giving it away: A recent Freshpair poll told the sick tale that 73 percent of the American population wears old “expired” underwear that’s been ruined by stains, holes and more runs than your granny’s panty hose. I had heard enough.

When it comes to accessories, I generally live by the more-is-more philosophy — except when it comes to one particular area. I’ve never had my ears pierced, and frankly, I don’t think I ever want to. Weird, right? You’re probably wondering, how do you go 32 years forward into womanhood, become a style editor and not have a close personal encounter with the piercer’s needle? Like many, I was asked by my mom as a little girl if I wanted to get pierced at the local K-Mart, and at eight or nine — whatever age I was at the time — it just didn’t seem like a good idea. Even then, I was too neurotic to believe that having a stranger poke holes in my ears would be a very smart. No thank you, I will do without.

We love multi-function products, but never have we come across a hair product that does the job of 15 other products in one! And that’s exactly the reputation of Black 15in1. This hair product supposedly increases shine, hair color retention, diminishes frizz and split ends, and protects from heat styling and UV rays. Plus, Black 15in1 contains healthy ingredients like marigold flower extract, Keratin and licorice extract, a UVA/UVB protector. It’s also TSA-approved and a favorite among celebrities. So, you might not be able to travel as often as your favorite celebs, but you can give good celeb hair while you truck to work with Black 15in1.
The other day, I complimented my friend Becca on her dress and asked her where she got it. “Target, like, three years ago,” she sighed. “My heart hurts for Target three years ago. Everything was so cute and fit me perfectly.” We got to talking about other collections and trends that we still yearned for, even though they were long gone. For example, I totally loved it when every store was stocking leggings and tunics a couple years back–so comfy and flattering! And I really miss those light-up sneakers from the early ’90s, but that’s kind of a given. Click through to check out other Frisky staffers’ favorite styles of yesteryear, and please share your own long lost favorites in the comments…
