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 »

When Rachel Bilson was out of town, her LA home was burgled. The thief raided the star’s closet, taking designer clothes, shoes, handbags, and jewelry, including items given to her by her grandmother. While the loss of her Chanel collection unfortunate, it’s the stealing of the jewelry that Rachel’s grandmother gave her that’s most heart-wrenching; it can’t be replaced.
That got me thinking: What clothing or accessory would I be most upset about if it got stolen? It would probably be a bracelet my parents gave me. While the item could be replaed, I would always know that it wasn’t the one they gave me. Keep reading »
Sometimes the universe works in mysterious ways. It gives, it takes, and everything levels out somehow. For example, Courtney Love goes on Twitter. Then Ashton Kutcher. Then Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson. And we ask ourselves: Why are we reading this thing again?
Now, Bruno, Sacha Baron Cohen’s fashion reporter character from “Bruno,” which debuts July 10, has started tweeting. Suddenly, we can bear to read TweetDeck again.
A few of his tweets really aren’t printable on a blog our moms read. But ze rest are just brilliant … Keep reading »

Handbags haven’t gone out of style, but retailers keep coming up with different ways for women to transport their money and other essentials. We’ve already deemed the Cap-Sac a fashion don’t. But the Racktrap is a whole different story. It is a small, flat wallet that fits perfectly inside your bra regardless of your cup size. It easily and safely holds money, ID, and credit cards. Obviously, it was made for the woman-on-the-go who likes to have her hands free. The Special Edition Gold Racktrap costs $7.95, but you can purchase a four-pack to “match any outfit” for $19.95. Now all we have to figure out is how to discreetly dig around in our bra when we’re at the checkout counter. [She Finds]

As soon as I put on a pair of four-inch heels, I long for the moment when I can take them off. It’s not that they’re that painful, but I feel immense guilt about treating my poor little feet so badly. My sky-high pumps can’t possibly be good for them … or can they?
