I´ve been a card carrying member of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee since puberty. If we have this in common, then let´s rejoice and burn our padded bras together: there´s a new over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder just for pebbles like ours. It’s called the Itty Bitty Bra and it does what it says: covers your itty-bitties and makes them look sexy. Taylor Swift and “Dancing With The Stars” Misty May are already fans of the line which also offers matching bikini panties and camisoles. Find them online here. Keep reading »
“The Hangover” is already a summer smash, killing it at the box office. While your morning-afters probably aren’t as dramatic, there’s no denying that being hungover sucks. And looking good when you feel ready to barf at any moment? Next to impossible. Be prepared next time with an outfit like this that will maximize your comfort.
- Sunglasses are a must, and the darker the lens, the better. [$162, Marc Jacobs, Bluefly.com]
- This loose-fitting gauze top won’t constrict, and can also allow you to wear a camisole sans bra underneath. [$38, BDG, Urbanoutfitters.com]
- Think harem pants are a risky fashion choice? Consider that a) they are super comfy and b) when you’re hungover you could give a rat’s ass. [$87, Splendid.com]
- Birkenstocks have a remarkable cushion and now come in non-hippy colors like this snazzy silver. [$79.95, Endless.com]
Christie Brinkley’s all-American style isn’t something we’d ever copy, but that hasn’t stopped us from coveting this ring from her line with Ross-Simons. The turquoise petals are so bright and cheerful, and the amethysts remind us of lilacs. We’d wear this ring with a simple dress or jeans and a white T-shirt so it would be the eye-catcher of the outfit. Now all we have to do is stick to our lunch menu of peanut butter sandwiches so we can afford it. [$125, Ross-Simons] Keep reading »
Christina Aguilera isn’t the only one being inspired by Lady Gaga‘s platinum blunt cut bangs, and hyper sexy looks. The chicest magazine to end all chic magazines, Vogue Italia, is taking a page or two from her style book too. For their June issue, they’ve transformed high fashion model Sessilee Lopez into a Gaga-ette. The multi-page spread features Lopez complete with platinum blond hair, and tight, short, blingy looks. I’m loving what I´m seeing, but dressing Lopez in Swarovsky studded panties and a bustier, holding a tea cup, would have really driven the point home. Yes? Keep reading »
Sometimes we wonder if American Apparel isn’t just pulling our chain with each increasingly slutty product they put out. Some of these things seem like they were made solely to stir up controversy rather than for a profit. If that’s the case, Dov gets points for marketing smarts (which doesn’t effect his overall loss of points for being a total douchenozzle). Here, four AA items that outweigh the rest in terms of skankiness… Keep reading »
Looking at this work of “art” by Janine Rewell is painful. Using the body as a canvas, Rewell created “Tan the Man,” by strategically placing customized vinyl stickers on the poor dude, and banishing him to the solarium until he was burned to a crisp. An interesting reminder that skin is a photosensitive material, but also a reminder that skin is a sensitive material. Yet, I don’t think Rewell has a political agenda here, and was interested more in the graphic concept. [Janinerewell.com] Keep reading »
I’ve been a little obsessed with the Doodle Bra since we did a post about it way back in March. And now, finally, mine arrived at the office a couple days ago after weeks of waiting. Oh, the intricate fantasies I had about all the ways my life would improve when the color-and-wash bra arrived and we became inseparable. Keep reading »
Maria Sharapova was on hand to unveil a prototype of a dress that lights up when the wearer’s cell phone or smartphone rings. The dress was designed by British fashion student Georgie Davies for a school project and partnership with Sony Ericsson aimed at incorporating new technology into fashion. Davies said the dress was designed to connect to the wearer’s phone via Bluetooth technology. “When you’re in a pub or a bar, you can never, ever hear your phone,” Davies told Reuters. The good thing is this dress is actually wearable and not at all overly Sci-Fi-looking. The dress is knee-length, white, short-sleeved, and is embellished along one side with translucent white scales (think square paillettes) that move and light up. See more photos here. I’d wear it. Would you? Keep reading »
Everyone has been talking about Minx Nails lately. The nail art was featured in a recent issue of Vogue and on “Today” this morning, but I have to say these “news” outlets are a little behind. The Frisky gave you the dish on Minx back in October, and even interviewed manicurist, Lisa Logan, who was responsible for Beyonce and Solange’s Obama nails that were popular during the presidential campaign.
Last week, I had the pleasure of getting my nails dipped in gold. OK, not really, but I got close. I had Minx Nails applied in gold on eight fingers and gold cheetah on two fingers. It was kind of weird to have a “dry manicure.” I had trouble remembering that my nails weren’t wet, even though I just had them done. I kept the Minx Nails on for a few days and found myself admiring them quite often. However, I don’t think they’ll replace my normal manicure — they’re more for special occasions. The pedicures, however, I could get behind. A Minx pedicure supposedly lasts three times as long as the manicure. Keep reading »
Beth Ditto: lead singer of The Gossip, naked Love cover girl and Karl Lagerfeld bestie is coming out with a new fashion line. And not just any old line, but a plus-sized line! Evens, a British plus size store, disagreed with our own Lily and British GQ and let Ditto inject her pop-punk aesthetic into the line, due out July 9. It’s heavy on the sequins, sparkle and 80′s feel—much like Ditto’s personal style. Check it out the full collection here—and FYI, kids: Evans ships to the little ole U.S.A. Keep reading »
