Chic Barf Bags: Get Sick In Style

As a child, I had an extremely sensitive stomach. This resulted in my eating only bacon when my family went out to dinner [Does this explain why you're now a vegetarian? -- Editor] and getting sick on car rides lasting more than two hours. The former garnered me the nickname “Bacon Lady,” the latter made me incredibly embarrassed. Some may say Morning Chicness Bags are a complete waste of money at a cost of $7.50 for 10, but I would have liked to have had Motion Chicness bags. If they had been around earlier, I could at least have had a cute receptacle in which to vomit. Instead, it once ended up in my little sister’s bag of Silly Putty and travel games, and to this day, she still reminds me of this. [Morning Chicness Bags via Jezebel] Keep reading »

How’s This For A Crazy “Forking” Diet?

There are a ton of weird diets out there, but here’s one we’ve never seen before (although apparently it isn’t totally new): Forking. The principle is to eat only foods that can be eaten and prepared with a fork. You’re allowed to eat what you want during the day (within reason), but when it comes to dinner, it’s forks all the way. Want some onion in your spaghetti? Too bad. How about mustard on your sandwich? Out of luck. The idea is that you don’t exclude any foods, and you satisfy your hunger at breakfast and lunch, so you don’t feel deprived. There are, however, two levels of the diet: “Strict includes fork-only for the preparation of food, whereas Gentle allows you to use a knife to prepare your food but only your fork to eat it.” So does that mean you can have a hefty steak if you cut it up into little pieces before it goes on the plate? We think the only way you’d stay sane on this clearly bogus regime is to have a very sharp spork. [SoFeminine.co.uk] Keep reading »

Jesus Luz Loves Himself A Little Too Much

The folks behind the new Ona Saez ad campaign made so many questionable, er, “creative decisions” that we’re not sure where to begin. So let’s jump off from the most obvious point: Who approved the concept of a Jesus Luz love-fest? Why did it ever seem like a good idea to turn the Brazilian brand’s ad campaign into one massive blow job homage to Madge‘s boy toy? [Made in Brazil]

Furnish Your Pad With Pads

As a lady, you know that every month there will be blood. But designer Andy Kurovets wants Aunt Flo to move in with you permanently. Soak in his Hygienic Sanitary Pad Layers Table. If only we could really shelve our periods … but these will at least help you organize your bloody mess. Perhaps there is no more fitting furniture to store your chick-rock CD collection. Those Sarah McLachlan, Indigo Girls, Ani DiFranco, and Joni Mitchell records would look quite at home lined up on these sanitary napkins. Now, you gotta see what Andy did with with a tampon, after the jump! [WOW Report via Yanko Design] Keep reading »

Tween Fashion Blogger Tavi Lands POP Magazine Cover

Our favorite tween fashion blogger Tavi may not have scored the cover of Love, but it looks like she has landed on the latest issue of POP magazine, whose first relaunch issue under new editor Dasha Zhukova is due out soon. The black and white cover shows the Style Rookie blogger wearing some rad sequined shorts in front of a Damien Hirst background. We can’t say for sure whether this cover is official—it was posted on Grazia’s blog this morning (a pretty credible source), but the link has disappeared. The pic, however, is starting to make the rounds, so we’re assuming it’s a leak. Either way, we’re happy to see the smart and wacky Tavi gaining recognition. [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »

Are You An Agent Provocateur Or Victoria’s Secret Kind Of Gal?

Now that fancy British underwear brand Agent Provocateur is invading New York Fashion Week, we’re going to have to pick our allegiances: Is your loyalty to American mainstay Victoria’s Secret or Agent Provocateur, home to all things even vaguely kinky? Here are a few points to consider as you choose sides… Keep reading »

Betsey Johnson Releases Awesome Vintage Runway Footage

If you love to watch old runway videos as much as I do, has Betsey Johnson got a treat for us today! The designer just posted her runway archives, which, even if you’re not a huge fan of hers, are amazing for the following reasons: a.) They are a fascinating glimpse back at some crazy shows before Fashion Week became this colossal commercial entity; b.) They remind us that her dresses were what all the cool girls were wearing during the ’80s; and c.) Her sense of fun and whimsy hasn’t changed over the years. You won’t see stompy, sad-eyed models moping down a Betsey catwalk, and to this day the designer still does a cartwheel at the end of the presentation. Can’t imagine her colleague, Carolina Herrera, doing that — ya know? Enjoy the vid above, which starts out with the amazing, groundbreaking-back-in-the-day black supermodel Pat Cleveland freakin’ working it. Watch the rest here.

Artist Carves Faces Out Of Fashion Magazines

We here at Der Frisky are loving these amazing carved fashion magazine artworks by Nate Page. We’re not entirely sure how he reconstructs these deconstructed glossy pages, but it involves “drawing and assemblage,” and the results are beautiful and haunting. Here, he appears to have carved the face out of Naomi Watts on the cover of Vogue Australia to creepy cool effect, leaving nothing but the eyes staring out. I used to keep all my magazines, until they stood in towering stacks. It’s lovely to see someone make art out of what we stare at that stares back at us.

Chris Sauve Does It Again

How is it that graphic tee shirts elevate mundane sayings into major fashion moments? Case in point: this shirt. It’s the brainchild of New York City-based designer and art director Christopher Sauve and features a sketch of Jesus (notice the Vogue collar he is rocking), plus the popular saying “God Don’t Like Ugly.” Sauve has already developed a bit of a cult following for his other tees which feature fashion-forward slogans such as “Save Anna [Wintour]” and “I Die. Bananas,” an homage to one of Rachel Zoe’s favorite sayings. These quirky tees will set you back $35 a pop. Log on to Sauve’s site to find out how to buy. [The Cut] Keep reading »

Beer In Your Beauty Routine?

Mmm … beer, the delicious soda that makes you feel good. And, apparently, makes you look good, and we’re not talking about beer goggles. Recently, beauty blog BellaSugar reminded us that the beverage has some great beauty benefits. Because of its astringent qualities, beer can help remove hair product buildup when used as a pre-shampoo treatment. You can also make a homemade facial with it, adding avocado, vinegar, and honey. As a last suggestion, you can pour it into your bubble bath … which doesn’t seem to have much benefit other than it feels good (apparently). [BellaSugar]

We’ve also come across some other uses for ale—there are countless recipes out there for beer shampoos and conditioners (you can mix it with jojoba oil, for example), and you can also use it as a styling spray. The question is, would you really want to? Keep reading »
