Bangs can be pesky. They grow out quickly. Without experience, taking matters into your own hands isn’t the best idea. (Case in point: My dad once decided to cut my bangs when I was 7.

Annika has challenged us all to wear shorts (and look nice doing so) this spring, and Katy here proves that it’s possible! Along with her nude lace-up flats, high-waisted shorts, and bangle bracelets, we love how the long necklace ads a little oomph to her outfit. [Weardrobe]

While it’s not clear if they actually work, facials tend to focus on two things: relaxing or acne-fighting.

Bathing suits and jewel-encrusted bling. They go together like Cheerios and vodka—and maybe there’s a reason for that.

The UK-based director has created videos for Aphex Twin, Portishead, and The Horrors. Now, he’s following in the footsteps of David Lynch by… READ MORE »

“Grey Gardens” debuts April 18, and I couldn’t be more thrilled! (After all, it’s not every day a movie makes my eccentricities seem normal.) The Frisky gals and I attended the “Grey Gardens” world premiere in NYC, and the movie is, as the kids say, the cat’s pajamas. “Grey Gardens” stars Drew Barrymore and Jessica… READ MORE »

When we have friends over to our apartment, we usually spend much of the evening running around the kitchen like a chicken with its head cut off while trying to keep calm and avoid splattering tomato sauce all over the front of our party dress. Aprons might help prevent the latter, but they don’t really… READ MORE »

Another day, another Michelle Obama fashion flareup. Today, pockets! Like, rilly rilly big ones.
