It’s not enough for our armpits to smell
lovely, now they must also look
lovely? Sadly, data says that 93 percent of women think they’re armpits are fugs. Preying on our armpit insecurity, the deodorant companies are about to inundate us with products that will improve the appearance of our pits in just days and give us the confidence we need to wear tank tops this spring. I didn’t know I was supposed to hate my armpits. I’ve always felt just ducky about mine. Thank you, armpit industry, for inducing unnecessary bodily shame. I shall make sure my armpits look up to par before exposing them in public. [WSJ

So, this is how Lady Gaga dresses when she’s going to the airport. Not that we’re surprised. Still, it seems that multiple metal belts and tchotkes might be a bit inconvenient for airport security.

It’s really hard to figure out what to wear during the spring months, when the weather can turn from nice to nasty on a dime.
