Catch A Breeze With The Assless Outfit

The guy to the left might look like an Average Joe wearing a plain bubble jacket and jeans. But when he turns around, boy, are you in for a surprise! He’s apparently taking part in a new fad that is spreading across Asia — the Half Outfit, aka the Assless Outfit. I’m not convinced that this is trendy anywhere in the world because it’s just too impractical. And if people are making this fashionable, then it’s just to get a reaction, and the joke will get tired fast. But that doesn’t mean we can’t laugh now. After the jump, peep the bum photo.

The MobiGrip device leash, a stick-on mini-bungee that loops comfortably around your digits, is the cure to all butter finger-inflicted disasters that leave your poor dropped phone either cracked on the sidewalk or slowly fizzling out in a puddle of water…Read more Keep reading »

Long Skirts My Ass: Rodarte Wins CFDA Award

Nary a day goes by lately without another store closing, one more report of plummeting sales figures and a bright glint of hope that Crocs may finally go under due to massive losses. Some economists and fashion analysts are even saying that these tough times have resulted in Depression-era style having a resurgence (not always a bad thing), like muted color palettes and longer skirts. But while the tanking economy is forcing some of us into Ramen dinners, ankle length sack skirts and boring colors, others are telling all economic indicators to screw themselves and sticking with bright, hot little dresses. And they’re doing better than most. Keep reading »

DIY Nail Art Makes Manicures Fun

I remember the days when manicures were fun. More often now, it seems like a burden and an expense when I look at my hands and go, Ugh, I need a manicure so bad. So, when browsing the drug store the other day, I was tempted by this package of nail gems by Fing’rs (creepiest name ever). Pretty certain that I am the worst manicurist ever, I doubted that I’d be able to pull of the creation, but I found it shockingly simple. To make things easier on yourself, pre-select the gems you want to use, spreading them out on a piece of paper. Work up a thick coat of polish; apply the first coat, let dry for a minute, then apply a second coat, allowing it to set up for about 30 seconds. Using a tweezer, drop your designs into place and maneuver them using the wooden stick provided or the tips of your tweezers. This part is surprisingly forgivable because the thick polish lets you push the jewel into place without messing up the entire nail. Once you’ve got your nail art in place, cover it with several thick coats of clear nail polish. After the jump, a few of my decorative ideas. [Fing'rs] Keep reading »

Herve Leger Swimwear Is Questionable

I recently heard that the Herve Leger line by Max Azria now includes swimwear, so I decided to see what all the fuss was about. I flipped through the designer’s 2009 summer swimsuit collection online, but to my surprise, a swimsuit was no where to be seen. Keep reading »

Crave: Gap Designer Editions Vena Cava Khaki Zip Dress

Every year, the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists re-interpret a classic for Gap. The last couple years, they rethought white shirts. This year, it’s khaki that’s getting a makeover. Our favorite from the collection — though we’d wear them all — is design duo Vena Cava’s khaki zip dress. This certainly ain’t your mama’s chino. [$88, Gap] Keep reading »

Could You Wear One Dress For The Next 365 Days?

Call it a slightly different sort fashion risk. Sheena Matheiken is a woman on a mission. With the help of clothing designer Eliza Starbuck, Matheiken is wearing a single dress every day for the next year. (Check out what she wore on day 47, above) The endeavor is called “The Uniform Project” and it’s “an exercise in sustainable fashion.” There are seven identical dresses, one for each day of the week. Every day she reinvents the dress with layers, accessories, et cetera—most of which are vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down. And, I gotta say, she comes up with some pretty ingenious combinations and outfits! Think of it as wearing a daily uniform that doubles as a fund-raising effort for the Akanksha Foundation, a school project to fund uniforms and other educational expenses for slum children in India.

The Lazy Girl’s Guide To Getting A Bikini Body

Around April, the ladymags start touting bikini body promises. And each April, you pick up a magazine, firmly resolved that this is the year that you will plan ahead and get in shape, so that by the time June rolls around, you’ll be beach ready. Oops, it’s June now, and you have neither worked out regularly or cut carbs or whatever this year’s fad is. The truth is, we at The Frisky are more about living life to the fullest (carbs and all), and we admit to being less than regimented about our gym schedule (although more power to you if you can get there more than the three times a week we shoot for). Yet, we also admit that it’s normal to have a panic attack before putting on a bikini. Here, some quick fixes that aren’t necessarily answers to your problems, but may help you feel more confident walking out on the beach. Keep reading »

Sperm and Fallopian Tube Jewelry

At first look, these metallic earrings are rather cute. Not my style necessarily, but statement jewelry is in and there is nothing particularly off about them. At second look, I am permanently scarred and already have a call in to my therapist. I should actually be calling my gynecologist to see if these sperm and fallopian tube earrings are anatomically correct. If I am going to walk around with metallic reproductive organs on my lobes, I want to make sure they are at least realistically represented. I suppose they are unusual because no one in their right mind would think people would buy sperm earrings, but if I had remained in ignorant bliss I probably would have donned them on my next date. Good thing I have seen the light (and the contraceptive), for it would have been tres awkward if a date thought I was wearing sperm earrings to lure him in. [$70, Luna Parc] Keep reading »

Hello Kitty Sets Up House In Shanghai

Well, hellooooo kitty! Check out the new Hello Kitty Castle, a shrine to the cult cat that just opened in Shanghai. While we outgrew our Sanrio obsession a few years ago, we get the obsessive appeal of the cute feline, and can’t help but drool over the squeal-worthy interior, which features furniture decorated with bows and shades of pink, HK artwork, a living room with a huge ass television, and a bedroom with a bed worthy of a princess. It even looks like there’s a place to eat some Hello Kitty desserts. Meow, indeed. [Geekologie] Keep reading »
