How Do You Like To Waste Your Time?

Next time you find yourself standing in front of your closet agonizing over what to wear, consider this: Your towel-clad wardrobe rifling may cost you nearly a year of your life. That’s right, the average woman spends 287 days looking through her wardrobe and considering which outfit to wear. [Telegraph]

Hearing that we’ll have semi-wasted nearly a year on wardrobe selection by the time we’re too old to care came as a bit of a shock. (Kind of like the day we realized that eating half a bag of cookie crumbs is basically the same thing as eating half a bag of cookies.) Though we all recognize that the half hour each morning, wardrobe obsessing before a date and endless thought about what to wear to a meeting with the boss has got to add up, we never really considered that it could amount to so damn much. The whole thing kind of got us thinking about all the other ways we habitually waste minutes and even years of our lives. Check out our top time sucks after the jump…

Anyone In The Market For Some Michael Jackson Ink?

Tributes galore have popped up in honor of Michael Jackson since the pop icon’s passing. They’ve run the gamut from celebrity tweets to musical tributes and even full on dance performances by Madonna and Beyonce. But none are more wacky, tacky or umm…permanent than tattoos. And plenty of them. At first celebs like rapper, The Game and British reality TV star Jodie Marsh rushed to get MJ’s face inked on their body. Now floods of everyday fans are getting in on the tat action, too. We guess love is pain. But the question is, would you really want Jacko’s face on your body? I mean, seriously?

Quick Pic: Everything Butt The Truth

This would seem to be the product of a 13-year-old boy experimenting with origami. Or just someone who realized that the web would go crazy over a piece of paper that’s cut to look like a lady’s butt. Either way, rad. [LikeCool.com] Keep reading »

Check This Out: We Are Photogirls

After school was never this cool for us: We Are Photogirls, a London-based creative institute for teenage girls, shows youngsters everything they’d ever want to know about fashion photography, from styling and makeup to technical details and art direction. Students end up learning life skills through workshops, shooting a “Mutual-Respect Calendar” between teen boys and girls, and a “Fashion Shoot Battle” between youth groups. The results are stunning and professional—nothing we ever snapped with our Kodak disposables. And while the fashion world can be a treacherous place for self-respect, Photogirls aims to project a wholesome image: According to their site, “At We Are Photogirls we strongly believe that being beautiful is not about being a 6ft tall, size-zero model; rather that everyone has a unique style and beauty that should be encouraged and celebrated!” That’s cool.

An Interview With Jewelry Designer Shaun Leane

My favorite jewelry designer — well, except for Tiffany, of course — is Shaun Leane, the man behind some of the most outrageous jewelry and accessories that you may have seen being worn on the runway by Alexander McQueen models. On the W blog, there’s a new fast and dirty interview with the British jewelry designer in which he talks about making the silver armor hand piece that you see here for fashion icon Daphne Guinness, how long it takes to make a coiled metal corset that a runway model can actually wear, and why his favorite McQueen show involved paint-spraying robots. My favorite Leane piece is this diamonds-and-thorns-encrusted black heart locket. It has a little window in the back that lets you put a tiny keepsake inside it. Now if only I had £7,800.00.

Gift For The Best BF Ever: Kanye West’s Louis Vuitton Sneaks

Hot on the heels of his sneaker design collaboration with Nike, Kanye West has debuted another one with Louis Vuitton. The collection, simply called, er, Kanye West for Louis Vuitton, features five distinct sneakers which range in colors from solid red to pastel shades. West mixed the usual suspects when it comes to sneaker materials like leather uppers and cotton laces with felt trimming. And while they might look like your standard sneaker, the signature Louis Vuitton logo on the soles and tongues let you know that these are luxury kicks. So does the price! The shoes, available at Louis Vuitton stores, cost between $840 and $1140 depending on the style. If your guy, really, really, really wanted these, would you buy them for him? It’s a recession, so I’m thinking I’d download the picture and frame it nicely for him instead. Keep reading »

Tim Gunn Dishes On The New “Project Runway” Designers

We were extremely bummed to learn “Project Runway” was “moving to Lifetime from Bravo. Our depression grew when we realized Bravo’s “The Fashion Show” is no “Runway” substitute — Kelly Rowland and Isaac Mizrahi have nothing on Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn! Well, season six of “Runway” is set to premiere on Aug. 20, and we’ll be watching, despite the network move. Tim spoke to People.com about his take on the new designers, piquing our interest in the show once again. Keep reading »

Crave: Dermalogica Clean Start Skincare Products

Getting skin, “clean, clear, and under control” can be more than a little complicated. To simplify the process, one of our fave skin care brands, Dermalogica, has launched a line called Clean Start. The eight product range is appropriate for all skin types, but targeted specifically at teens to rid skin of blackheads, pimples, and other impurities. The line doesn’t rely on peppy commercials or packaging to get it’s point across, just quality ingredients and attention to detail — like a backwards spraying skin toner which can be spritzed on your face or your back. Best of all, the products contain no artificial colors, fragrances, or allergens. You can buy the cleansing gels, toners, and moisturizers separately. [$16 - $36, Clean Start] Keep reading »

Spend The Day Chillaxing On An Artsy Beach Blanket

Here at The Frisky, we’ve talked wearable towels, Gucci towels and recession-defying $500 towels, but here’s another sort of absorbent fabric type to add to the list: Artware Editions has just introduced their 2009 Artist Towel Series. It features three-ply designs from some pretty big-deal artists like Ed Ruscha, Karen Kilimnick, Raymond Pettibon and Julian Schnabel. (Last year the round-up included Jeff Koons (check it, above) and Elizabeth Peyton.) You should also know that these are massive towels. Seriously, you could throw one of these bad boys down on the sand and fit at least two healthy-sized adults on there. And while drying off doesn’t come cheap (they run $95 each), I guess they’re a bit more accessible than say, buying a Koons sculpture at auction prices. [Artware Editions] Keep reading »

DIY: The Best Chanel Purse Knockoff Ever

Certain areas of NYC, like Canal Street and any street corner where a sheet can be unfurled and then snatched up quickly , are dedicated to selling knockoff designer wares. But there’s an even cheaper way to get a “designer” purse — all you need is a steady hand, a brown paper bag, a Sharpee, and a thin link chain. That’s how the above Chanel-inspired handbag was created. What makes this tongue-in-cheek knockoff even better is that the Double Cs logo isn’t perfect — so there, Karl Lagerfeld! Now if only someone would tell me how to create a DIY Hermes Birkin and my accessories closet could be complete. [Jak & Jil via Fashion Copious] Keep reading »
