Our roommate started it.
He came home one day with a shoebox of Vibram FiveFingers toe shoes, pleased as can be. Toe shoes, to quote directly from the Vibram FiveFingers website, are “different than any other footwear on the planet. Not only do they bring you closer to your environment, FiveFingers deliver a number of positive health benefits — by leveraging all of the body’s natural biomechanics, so you can move as nature intended.”
“They’re ugly,” I told him. “They look like gorilla feet.” I snapped at him to get the dirty toe shoes off of our ottoman — they are shoes, after all. But my boyfriend just eyed the rubbery footwear enviously. Boys and their toys, I thought to myself.
It was not long before he purchased a pair of himself. Keep reading »
We ladies sometimes get a bad rep for carrying around purses so large you could house a small zoo in them. This may be true, but at least your handbag isn’t this big. Behold, a giant replica of an Hermès Kelly bag, which is on display at a Dublin department store. Standing at over 9-feet-tall, the monument isn’t just for sitting pretty; it’s also interactive. Shoppers can climb inside and watch short films all while the purse moves so that you feel as though your life has actually gone “Honey I Shrunk The Kids”-style and you’re being carried around. Completely weird? Yes. But at the same time, this sounds so cool! We want to test it out—it’s like Disneyland for fashion! [Ruth O’Connor] Keep reading »
Find your inner spirit animal in this super cool mirrored fox brooch by British label Bena. We love the way the printing has created an ombre effect, as well as the play of a natural animal theme combined with synthetic materials. Definitely a conversation piece, this brooch can also double as a makeup mirror when you’re on the go. You’ll never have to put lipstick on in a window reflection again!
If you thought #3 on yesterday’s list of “Signs You Ain’t Nothin’ But A Hoochie Mama” made you cringe, wait till you hear the name of this new line of blankets: Vagisoft. Shudder. And I’m not shuddering because it’s cold and I need a blanket. I mean Vagisoft sounds like the kinda thing you hide in your medicine cabinet, not sell as being softer than a “freshly laundered bunny.” And, honestly, who would launder a bunny?! The same peeps who make a blanket like a vagina, apparently. Creeps. [WOW Report] Keep reading »
Adidas Originals and Snoop Dogg have teamed up to create perhaps the comfiest holiday ever, National Tracksuit Day, and it’s happening tomorrow, November 19th. Here’s a montage of Snoop’s slightly dizzying pleas for you to take part. What’s that? You’re not allowed to wear a tracksuit to work? Dude, it’s a national holiday. Your boss will understand.

So, yes, shockingly, the results of the 30-Day Cellulite Challenge seem to suggest that this is actually working. I’ve got less cellulite — or should I say, there appears to be less of an appearance of cellulite — on my butt for pretty sure, although the upper-thighs I’m not so sure about.
Speaking of which, what the hell is cellulite anyway? Keep reading »
