Fashion insiders, like Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, and Tom Ford, are no strangers to the fashion-on-film documentary. But with “God Save My Shoes” we get an in-depth look at the relationship women have with their footwear.

The documentary will premiere in Paris during fashion week this fall, but we can check out more teasers until “God Save My Shoes” arrives stateside. [Racked] Keep reading »

I was hesitant because I hate scary movies (I still have nightmares about the 15 minutes of “Scream” I watched accidentally in 1996), but they insisted it was a classic and I needed to see it in order to be a productive member of society.

Earlier this year, I decided that my personal trainer wasn’t a necessity. I told myself that I could save the money I paid him, while employing the exercises he taught me and taking advantage of BeFitNYC, NYC’s free or low-cost fitness program. But you know what?

Please reveal your easy, fuss-free, and dare I say fun at home/free exercise tips in the comments. Hopefully, these exercises can be performed in a 3′ x 5′ floor space because that’s all the room I have. And look out for a post of all the good tips next week. Keep reading »

One of our favorite books growing up — oh, heck, it’s still on our bookshelf — is L.M. Montgomery’s Anne Of Green Gables. Anne Shirley, the spunky and idealistic orphan with red braids, is an eternal kindred spirit for every Frisky gal. “Tomorrow is a new day, with no mistakes in it” is one of our favorite quotes, aptly summing up Anne’s refreshing outlook on life, despite her early circumstances. This print, featuring Ann-with-an-E’s wise words, will be a helpful reminder to look on the bright side the next time you’re having a rotten day.
