Public Displays Of Grossness: Bare Feet Edition

This morning, I was getting my daily fancy coffee drink — an iced soy latte with a shot of vanilla, if you please — at a neighborhood shop called Cookie Road. The woman in front of me was well-dressed and European — she was discussing the status of the Dutch Kroener with the barista behind the counter, and nothing, at first, seemed amiss. And then I realized that she was barefoot. Like, stinking-feet-on-linoleum-tile-in-a-bakery barefoot. Gross on multiple levels. First, you’re in a cafe, where food is served. Second, you had to walk on city streets, covered in basically the urban equivalent of herpes. Not cool. So, that was a pretty nasty thing to see first thing in the morning.

What about you? What’s the nastiest thing you’ve seen someone do in public lately? Keep reading »

Lady Gaga’s Lady Parts Are Extreme, Too

Lady Gaga’s always looking for new ways to shock and awe her audience, so over the weekend at the Much Music Awards, Gaga decided to sport a lovely sea green merkin, to go with the mop of sea green wig on her head. Oh no, it was tasteful–it was on over the pants. As you do. [The Superficial] Keep reading »

Where Are We Living?: Kate’s Apartment!

Where Are We Living?: Kate
Hey folks. Since it’s The Frisky’s 7 Days To A Prettier Place week, we thought we’d each take you into our apartments and show you, uh, where the magic happens. So, welcome to my humble abode! The first thing most people notice when they walk into my place is that the walls are very, very bright—my living room (the South Wing*) is Kelly Green and my bedroom (the North Wing) is Rocky Mountain Blue. When I first told my parents I was planning on painting my apartment such vivid colors, they wanted to stage an intervention. But even they have to admit that it looks pretty cool, since I used kept the inset molding white. Gotta use the architecture in a place, no?

I am in love with this West Elm lamp, which adds a lot of style for $149. I found my coffee table on the street—I just sanded it, tightened the screws and painted it black.

*This is a joke because my entire apartment is 450 square feet. But, hey, it feels like a palace to me because until two years ago, I lived in a 250 square foot studio.

Home Style Stealer: A Sleek Home Office With Pops Of Color!

One of our favorite pastimes is drooling over what we call “interior design porn,” fantasizing about the day in which we, too, will have, say, a sunroom in our massive palatial estate. Until then, however, we aspire to spruce up the homes we’ve got, which is why all this week, we’ll be showing you how to prettify your place. One of the features we’ll be kickstarting with is a home decor twist on “Style Stealer,” in which we attempt to replicate the look and feel of rooms we think look super cozy and chic — but at a fraction of the cost of what the original owner probably paid. After the jump, find out how to get the look of this sleek and bright home office! Keep reading »

Frame Your Favorite Book

Some books mean so much to us — and have such pretty covers — that we want to draw more attention to them beyond just lining them up on a book shelf. This clever book picture frame as both a way to store your favorite tomes and display them as wall art. And wouldn’t the easy access come in handy the next time you have a desperate need to quote, say, Atticus Finch’s advice to Scout in To Kill A Mockingbird or read a sex scene out loud from Jackie Collins’ Lucky? Okay, maybe that last one is just something we would do — during a dinner party, for example — but you get the point. What books would you frame?

Kiddie Worn: Childrens Wear For Adults Only

Kristin Chenoweth recently proclaimed her love for GapKids to People Magazine. “I can wear a size 12/14,” the diminutive actress revealed.

Even if you are not as pint-sized as the Broadway star (88 pounds) you might be able to slip into some of the merchandise in the juniors department. Besides, there’s no shame in donning preteen fashion. These days it’s as stylish as designer duds and it’s easier on the wallet.

Some of our most sartorially savvy friends snatched up the Balmain-esque military jackets in Stella McCartney’s GapKids collection in 2009. And we’re now eagerly awaiting the chain’s upcoming childrenswear collaboration with Diane von Furstenberg — and we don’t have kids. Read more… Keep reading »
