I bought a long, red trench at a thrift store a couple years ago, and, without fail, I get called Carmen Sandiego every time I wear it. Dressing up as your favorite educational villain is simple if you already own a red trench — or want to buy one to wear on days other than Halloween. And if you’re not into forking over 50 bucks for a coat you’ll wear once, the Salvation Army is always a good place to start your search. Keep reading »
Here at The Frisky, we’re pretty big Etsy fans. We have a soft spot for all those darling creations and a major appreciation for the type of crafty folks out there who actually take the time to make goods by hand. But sometimes we’re cruisin’ through the site and suddenly come across these sort of random stand-outs that make us think, “Gee, really?” as in, one of these does not belong. Now there’s a storage unit for the more unfortunate items that show up, like these adorable tampon cozies (above). At Regretsy, you’ll find an eerie Michael Jackson baseball, throw pillows that look like condom wrappers, a Lil’ Kim baby gown, and crocheted toilet paper (man those knitters are creative!). Last week, the site refused to link to the real Etsy stores behind the craft fails, but they kind of blew up over the weekend and maybe that’s the reason why you can now click through to purchase the dubious goods. Think of it as your one-stop shop for gag gifts, or maybe just your new favorite four o’clock slack-off site. [Regretsy] Keep reading »
It’s bold. It’s colorful. It makes me want to throw my entire wardrobe out the window and start from scratch! Annalena stood out on the walkways of Venice with a Marni day coat that is, in one word, glorious. Where does one go in such aesthetically pleasing attire? Why, in this case, she was on her way to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, natch. Keep reading »
This mug is so cool/creepy, that I just remembered I had a nightmare about it last night. Seriously. I dreamed that I was being attacked and I fought back by throwing my teeth mug at the assailant. Anyway, would you drink your beverage of choice out of this bad boy? [$24, MollaSpace.com via Better Living Through Design] Keep reading »
We were slightly baffled by Drew Barrymore‘s most recent dye job, but it didn’t last long. Earlier this week, Drew appeared on “Today” and her blond hair no longer had black ends. She had chopped them off. Now she has the same ‘do as before, only slightly shorter. And she’s been wearing it slicked back. Keep reading »
At Hussein Chalayan, a model showed off two emerging trends: a bag on your head and a dress grabbing your boob. [10/4/10, Paris] Keep reading »
Do your boobs hang low, do they wobble to and fro? Can you tie ‘em in a knot, can you tie ‘em in a bow?
We would certainly hope not. (And if they do, we’d advise you to look into a little thing called plastic surgery. Kidding.) Unless, of course, you’re all about flaunting low-slung boobage, then some boob scarves will be right up your alley. Another oddity from the land of Japan, these neck warmers feature nipple-adorned cushions at the ends. Most of the designs come in white with a graphic embellishment that looks like a floral tattoo. There’s also a green scarf with matching neon nipples (for clients with alien-sex fetishes?).
Riiiight … well, if you got it flaunt it? We’re just not sure what would be worse—a man or a woman flaunting this fashion “moment”? (Shiver) [Lost At E Minor]

The first sign of cold, and we’re already eagerly scoping out winter goods. (We know. It can be a problem.) So we were smitten when we came across these Steven Alan mittens—the perfect cute-combo with their fingerless gloves, cozy-looking cashmere, and cool metallic leather. Even the name is rad: Glittens!
But alas, the $128 price tag cast a harsh frostbite over our find. Sure, when it comes to a winter coat, it’s natural to invest some bones … but justifying the idea of gloves as an investment piece? Not so sure.
Would you spring for (or ahem, fall in this case), these “Glittens”? [StevenAlan.com] Keep reading »
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, it was the time of Don and Betty Draper from “Mad Men.” A stylish time of men in hats and suits and when people dressed up to go to the mall. A time before the hippies ruined everything with peace, love, patchouli, and beards. Here are a few ways to teleport yourself back without the hassle of building a teleporter…
