Have You Ever Fought With Friends Over Clothes?

I was at a flea market this weekend with a friend, relishing in my new discovery that yes, despite the fact that I am only five-feet tall, I can actually wear three-quarter-length skirts as long as I wear heels, when I happened upon the perfect new skirt. The only trouble? My friend Sarah thought it was the perfect new skirt, too — for her. At first, her praise of the brightly-colored button-down vintage skirt (priced at a reasonable $20) was neutral. Until she tried the skirt on, too, and realized it fit her (at a good eight inches taller than me) just as well as me. “Wellllll, you know, that skirt is exactly what I’ve been looking for…” she said, her voice trailing off.

Forever 21 Wants To Shut Down Blogger … For Making Fun Of Forever 21

It’s often the biggest companies that have the tightest reign on their public perception — and inexpensive clothing company Forever 21 is no exception. Despite their public image of being young and fun (and, oh, totally Christian), the company is really, really up in arms over WTForever21, a funny blog that chronicles the hits and misses that come out of what blogger Rachel Kane calls the “shame factory.” Forever 21 sent Kane a cease and desist letter in April, claiming that she was violating copyright and trademark laws, even though Kane clearly states on the homepage, “Just FYI, The term ‘Forever 21′ is a trademark of Forever 21, Inc. This site is not affiliated with Forever 21, Inc.” Keep reading »

Beauty Blunder: Rembrandt Two-Hour Whitening Kit And Blistex Don’t Mix

Here’s something you might not know about me: I’m obsessed with white teeth. I’ve tried several at-home whitening kits from affordable Crest Whitestrips to the pricier Go Smile. But only Zoom Whitening, which I used under the care of a dentist last year, has given me the pearly whites I desired. Of course the system that gives the best results is pricey, so when I received a Rembrandt Two-Hour Whitening Kit in a gift bag, I thought it’d be a cost-effective way to maintain my white smile.

Here’s something else you don’t know about me: I have crazy chapped lips. I started using Blistex recently because it prevents chapped skin from forming on my lips and makes peeling off any skin easy.

But what happened when I combined the Rembrandt teeth bleach with Blistex? A painful chemical burn. Ouch! Keep reading »

Wolf & Harrison’s Summer T-Shirt Deal

Every year, as summer begins, we always clean out our T-shirt drawer, relegating the pit- and food-stained, threadbare numbers to the rag bin. Then the fun starts, as we stock up on new T’s to get us through the warm months. Sure, we mostly go for plain styles that are are easily paired with shorts and jeans, but we also always grab a few that have something special about them. For example, these horse and wolf etched V-necks from Wolf & Harrison. We liked them so much, we finagled a bit of a deal for ourselves — and you! Frisky readers can enter FRISKYSUMMER at checkout and get 35 percent off W&H’s T-shirts. Now that’s something to howl about.
