I’ve always been a bit envious of friends who could go sans bra without feeling crazy self-conscious. That level of hippie-esque chest freedom, I figured, has to be awesome.
So, I tried it and going braless is definitively not awesome, if you ask me. That said, being married to a bra shouldn’t keep you from wearing slinky, criss-crossed fashions all summer long.
If you want to pull it off, you’ve got to get creative with your undergarments. Keep reading »
You’re walking down the street feeling kind of sassy and doing the whole hip-swinging thing. Those heels are new and gloriously flattering, so you pretend you’re offended when an entire construction crew starts going wild. Really, though, you know it’s because you look damn good. Well, you thought it was because you looked damn good …
Actually, your skirt is tucked into the granny panties you wear when you’re too lazy to do your laundry and there’s nothing else in the drawer. Sure, your new shoes are hot, but that’s probably not what those men are howling about. We’ve all been there, and it’s tragic every time. But those wardrobe malfunctions, from nip-slips to skirt rips and everything in between, are an unavoidable part of life. So, the next time you’re trying to cover the chocolate milk stain on your white pants, keep these stories in mind and know that you’re not alone. Keep reading »
We saw pics of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt wearing surgical masks after returning from swine flu-plagued Mexico, and suddenly we couldn’t imagine life without the protective gear. I mean, what are we here for if not to emulate Speidi in every possible way?
As it turns out, we weren’t the only ones looking to copy the face mask fashion statement. A Japanese designer has come out with 15 awesome animal and human inspired protective surgical masks. Drug stores across America are selling out of face masks already, ostensibly because of the whole “swine flu” epidemic, but we think it’s because everyone’s favorite reality couple was snapped rocking them so attractively.
Thankfully, a little more digging yielded a painter’s mask. We added some doily bits abandoned in a desk drawer, and our sexy Simcha kindly modeled The Frisky’s take on this season’s perfect accessory for your paranoia. It’s a little over the top, but we had to compete with Speidi somehow, didn’t we? Keep reading »
Giddy up, party girls! The Kentucky Derby is this Saturday, and even if you won’t be cheering on the horsies at Churchill Downs, you can throw a propah Southern Derby soirée like a pro. So, get ready and get set for our Derby party grub guide: mint juleps, creamy cheddar grits, Benedictine, and fried chicken. Keep reading »
Yes! I’ve been waiting for this! Botox sounds like something I could totally do myself, and this DIY Botox kit on eBay comes with a map that shows you where to inject.
Just mix the “Botox powder” with the saline solution, and for $95 I can poke needles into my skin in the comfort of my own bathroom without having to schlep all the way to a plastic surgeon’s office to deal with medical professionals and sterilization. Don’t even try to outbid me. [Daily Mail U.K.] Keep reading »
Anne Hathaway showed up at a Cartier event in a “Mad Men” look. She tag-teamed a sixties-throwback style, a pair of tights with visible seams up the back, with a retro, one-sided updo. The result was sexy, but not smack-you-over-the-head sexpot. I likey. After the jump, how to recreate the hair on your own — it’s beyond simple.

You may think tights season is over, but think again. There’s still a chill in the air in some parts of the country — and your air conditioned office. Footed and footless tights in tie-dye, stripe, or zigzag patterns are a fun way to throw caution to the wind. When the temperature heats up, you can wear them with a long, billowy tunic. [Prices Vary, We Love Colors]

The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, May 1, through Thursday, May 7 — will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Some of the male models in Stand’s runway show wore gas masks. Were they an original part of the collection or a commentary on swine flu mania? [Sydney, Australia, 5/01/09] Keep reading »
This might be the perfect spring dress. The bright turquoise is fun and casual, and the interesting pleat detail fancifies the frock for cocktail parties. The origami bodice is supported by interior boning, which is great for bigger-chested ladies who know that strapless bras don’t always do the trick. As an added plus, the sash at the waist adds a body-flattering detail. While this ladylike strapless number looks like the type of high-end fashion Scarlett Johansson would sport on the red carpet, we couldn’t be more stoked about the price: $47.

I love drinking tea, but I’m a little sassier than most tea sets. Luckily, lingerie designer Tina Tsang has created a gorgeous-yet-quirky tea service that suits the modern tea-drinking woman. Lovely legs with gold heels pop out of the teapot, sugar bathtub, teacup, and milk pitcher. The tiered dessert stand reminds me of a party girl who’s had too much fun — which is exactly how my fancy tea at the Ritz played out when I went to London on vacation, and my friends and I got reprimanded for taking photos.
