If these Nike gladiator sandals were a person, they’d be the middle-school bully who beat up all the wimpy gladiator sandals from last season. They’re the brainchild of Art Center College design student Nancy and were created for Nike’s Remixed and Recut hybrid footwear line for Summer 2009. Hybrid is the perfect word to describe the sandals. They’re perfect for hitting the pavement while shopping or sightseeing, but they could transition to night with the right mini-dress. Sadly, they’re sold out. But if you love them as much as I do, you’ll keep checking Colette in hopes of scoring your pair. [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »

Neon has dominated nail polish for the last several summers. This year is no different. While we’re glad Essie is back with another bright collection this year, we’re on the lookout for new ways to infuse punchy colors. During Japan Fashion Week, G.V.G.V., which is sold in the U.S. at cool-depot Opening Ceremony, sent models in neon pink eyeliner and lipstick down the runway. Hot pink on nails looks cute, but on your face, well, it makes a statement. Would you wear such a bold color on your face?

This morning a fashion DISASTER occurred at The Frisky offices. Annika and Emily showed up to work and discovered that — oops — they’d worn the same Gap dress. (It’s not available online, but here’s a similar but longer style.) At first, they were a little peeved, but then they realized that this happened because they both have great taste. We love how they’re wearing the cobalt dress slightly differently. Annika dressed it up with a pair of hot purple heels and a matching scarf, while Emily played it casual with a thin grandpa cardigan and flip-flops. Keep reading »
Some geniuses had the great idea to start a website called Tights Are Not Pants. Why? They’re “tired of tolerating attempts to force tights into a non-native garment category and have decided to do something about it.” Downloadable flyers read: “Tell Your Douche Friends: TIGHTS ARE NOT PANTS,” “do unto others: tights are not pants,” and “TIGHTS WILL NOT SUFFICE.” Occasionally, I wear nearly opaque tights with shirts that hit at least my mid-thigh, and if anyone gives me one of these flyers, they will get a tongue-lashing and a dissection of their outfit. However, when it comes to women wearing short shirts or leotards with tights around town, I have to agree that’s TMI. I’ve seen women on the street and celebrities wearing tights instead of leggings, and that’s who should be called out, but only by people who have never committed a fashion faux pas in their life.

Check out this instructional video (NSFW) for FemSkin, the “transgendered prosthetic” we told you about a few weeks ago. Now, our male readers can learn how to don one. First, you line it with baby powder on the inside. Then, you roll each part of the skin over your body. (One is supposed to put on a FemSkin while nude, but the guy in the instructional video wears shorts.) The video advises where to place your ladylike FemPads to fake your hip bones, butt, and boobs. These are not your mama’s chicken cutlets. What do you say, guys? Try it out for us? [FemSkin Video (NSFW)] Keep reading »
