I have quite a shoe fetish, and whenever I see shoes I like, I automatically begin to style them (in my imagination) with my own clothes. That’s what happened when I saw these Prada spring 2011 shoes. I thought I could wear them with black skinny jeans or a pair of white-washed, distressed jeans. And even a floral skirt or dress because I love mixing stripes with florals. My only issue with my shoe fetish is that I’m always drawn to the most expensive shoes, like these Prada ones. I can’t be the only one that has this problem. Do you? And what do you think of Prada’s spring shoes? [Style.com] Keep reading »
One of our New Year’s resolutions is to stop wearing binding, uncomfortable, and impractical fashions. Of course, this resolution gives us the opportunity to do more shopping. So we headed over to StefaniBags.com, which offers the coolest and freshest designer handbags, where we found this Olivia Harris Baby Ball drawstring crossbody bag. It’s not only cute and petite, but also keeps your hands free to hold (what else?) more shopping bags. Plus, we love the Baby Ball’s modern lavender color and hardware. And StefaniBags.com is offering Frisky readers 20 percent off with code FRISKY20.
Feathers are everywhere this fashion season. They’re on blouses, sweaters, skirts, and jackets, like this Peplum Jacket from Romeo & Juliet Couture. The feathers on this jacket are nowhere near the face or neck, so there’s no risk of looking like the Chicken Lady or Big Bird. But there’s still something off about this jacket. It looks as if Romeo & Juliet had an overstock of plain blazers and tried to update them with feathers for the current season. I can think of only one way to style this jacket — skinny pants or jeans. And that’s not enough styling possibilities for a look that will last only one season. So would you wear the Romeo & Juliet Feather Peplum Jacket? [Last Call By Neiman Marcus] Keep reading »
Rent the Runway, the site that literally rents out current season designer fashions, is launching a bridal dress shop next week. That means women like me, who don’t necessarily want to keep their bridal gown or spend thousands of dollars on one, will be able to rent a dress for their big day. As wedding season gets into full-swing, this is amazing news for the bride trying to plan a wedding on a budget. The groom gets to rent his tux; why shouldn’t the bride have that same opportunity? Let’s hope Rent the Runway also has a section for bridesmaids. [Racked] Keep reading »
The other day, The Frisky’s resident hip-hop head responded to an email saying she was glad she wouldn’t have to “pour out some bubbly” to a feature that might have gone the way of the dinosaurs. This was obviously a reference to the ’90s hip-hop classic “Gangsta Lean,” except this writer prefers champagne to 40 ounces of malt liquor. But absolutely no one seemed to get the joke. That’s why Understand Rap: Explanations of Confusing Rap Lyrics You and Your Grandma Can Understand should be a must-read for anyone who is interested in pop culture or who simply wants to understand what the hell Jay-Z is rapping about. Writer William Buckholz uses his dry wit to explain the most popular rap lyrics, so you’re never confused again.
I whip my
hair belt back and forth! Well, I would if I had this combination belt and cat of nine tails. Hint, hint, boy toys! But you don’t have to bend over to purchase this kinky item. Made by dirty designer Incoqnito, it retails for a mere 89 bones. Think of it as an investment piece. [Trend Hunter] Keep reading »
