Check out this dance troupe striking a pose at a women’s suffrage ball sometime around 1910. With all the recent attacks on women’s rights, this photo makes me want to round up my most politically active girlfriends, sew ourselves some matching outfits, and choreograph a subversive dance dedicated to John Boehner.

“I think the term ‘plus size’ has a negative connotation. Personally, I wouldn’t even refer to a woman who’s a size 26 as ‘plus size.’ I find it interesting that if ever I do refer to myself as ‘plus size’ when describing what I do for a living people always have the same reaction. ‘WHAT!?! OH MY GOODNESS I WOULD NEVER CONSIDER YOU PLUS SIZE!!!’ And I always agree with them. I’m proud to set an example for women of all sizes as a bigger curvier model, and I’m so thankful to get letters from women of all sizes thanking me for promoting a more realistic healthy image. As for the word ‘curvy,’ I see nothing wrong with it. I don’t need to stress it as my title but I am a curvy, voluptuous, sexy woman and I think the word “curvy” relays a much more positive image. You can be a size 4 or 14 and be considered ‘curvy.’”

Both boxers and jeans are so comfortable for men. Why not combine the two? A Japanese company has made JeanPants, a pair of boxer-briefs printed to look like denim cutoffs, according to Styleite. Why any guy would want to look like he’s wearing denim cutoffs a la Jessica Simpson in “The Dukes Of Hazzard” is beyond me. If a guy whipped off his Levi’s to reveal denim-esque boxers underneath, I would laugh and laugh.
However, here is the real question: is this sartorial atrocity better or worse than a href=”http://www.thefrisky.com/tag/jeggings”>jeggings? [Japan Trend Shop via Styleite] Keep reading »

Remember when Charlie Sheen did that really weird thing that one time? No, no, not the time he completely lost his mind, shacked up with a couple of porn stars and talked about winning and warlocks. We’re referring to when Sheen decided he’d make kid’s clothes. Yes, that happened. Well, now mega-weeded mogul Snoop Dogg is teaming up with David Beckham (oh sure) to launch a line of children’s clothing. It seems the pair met when Beckham appeared on Snoop’s “Father Hood” reality show back in 2007 and kept in touch. “I’d love to do a Babygro range and baby house shoes with Beckham,” Snoop supposedly told The Daily Mirror “It’s going to be fly. It’s great news they are having a baby.” And also, of Beckham, Mr. Dogg said, “He’s like a brother. I’m gonna show him to rap, for shizzle. He’s my boy. I love soccer just as he loves hip-hop. Beckham needs to keep doing what he’s doing, he’s a great father.” [Daily Mirror] Keep reading »
