Everyone has fallen asleep on the beach for too long, or missed a spot with their sunscreen, only to wake up with a patch of skin as rare as an undercooked slab of meat. Sunburns are the worst kind of uncomfortable irritation because they hurt like a mother and ruin your temporarily youthful, healthy skin. Luckily, there are several ways to treat a sunburn fast and effectively. Keep reading »

The Frisky is run on a few things — Diet Coke, tea with soy milk and fresh air quickies, pasta for lunch, and cardigans. The latter we all wear on nearly a daily basis, regardless of the outside temperature. Our little office is freezing! Luckily, The Gap has these awesome soft and comfy V-neck cardigans perfect for layering under blazers during spring and over dresses during summer. They come in a million fun colors and have cute little buttons on the sleeve. We’re going to buy them all and then swap! [$44, The Gap] Keep reading »
Michelle Obama’s recounting of what Barack thinks of some of her fashion choices made us laugh. And then we started thinking, The president really is just another man! He doesn’t understand women’s clothing choices, just like practically every other guy we know!
When we wrote up our list of 30 Things Women Love That Men Just Don’t Understand, five of the items were fashion/style-related. But there’s so much more where that came from.
It seems as though whenever we don’t dress for men — i.e., form-fitting skirts and cleavage-bearing tops — that’s when they get confused. They can’t understand why we wear tunic tops and chunky wedge heels, or why we decided to cut off all of our hair. Usually, when we take fashion risks like these, we’re doing so as a way to express ourselves or our creativity — or to impress the other girls in the office. But it does suck when you think you look super cute and your guy thinks it looks like you’re wearing a painting smock for pregnant women. Wouldn’t it be nice if women’s and men’s opinions about what makes a stylish outfit meshed better?
What are some of the clothing and style choices your boyfriend and guy friends don’t find appealing?

“Barack calls it my ‘Star Trek’ belt. He doesn’t understand fashion … He’s always asking: ‘Is that new? I haven’t seen that before.’ It’s like, Why don’t you mind your own business? Solve world hunger. Get out of my closet.”
– Michelle Obama on her husband’s perception of her fashion sense. Keep reading »
They’re back! The Yeah Yeah Yeahs released their highly anticipated new album, It’s Blitz! While critics are calling it their grown up record, the band’s style is still tailored to their punk rock roots. With the help of her designer, Christian Joy, charismatic front woman Karen O has traded in her traditional glitter lamé get ups, and now she’s strutting around in studded leather. But you don’t have to bust out your old BeDazzaler to get her ensemble from the “Zero” video. Here’s how to rock your look like K-O! Keep reading »
We knew we had pretty much outgrown MTV when the network took on its “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” format — hello, “Cribs” and “My Super Sweet 16.” But we’ll totally tune in today at 3 pm when MTV puts a new spin on “House of Style.” You remember…that really cool style show, which helped keep Todd Oldham’s career afloat and was hosted by seemingly every popular ’90s model, like Cindy Crawford and Shalom Harlow. This time around, MTV is partnering with Teen Vogue to explore street and runway fashion. Host Bar Rafaeli, Teen Vogue editors, and Chanel Iman will countdown the must-have fashions for spring. And the DIY segment is still a part of the show, but you have to tune in on time in order to catch it. We’re hoping this show doesn’t completely exclude adult fashion and that we’ll be able to reinterpret teen styles. Let us know in the comments what you think of this remake.

Every Thursday, we watch “The Millionaire Matchmaker” on Bravo, mostly for Patti Stanger, the matchmaker herself. Stanger runs the Millionaire’s Club, an LA-based matchmaking service for, you guessed it, millionaires. Since we’re not trying to land in a millionaire’s bed, or get a 1,000-karat diamond ring on our finger (though we wouldn’t protest), we mostly watch for Stanger’s crazy/funny/often true advice, which is exactly what her book Become Your Own Matchmaker: Eight Easy Steps for Attracting Your Perfect Mate contains. [$19.95, BravoTV.com]
We’re giving away five copies of Patti Stanger’s book, but you have to work if you want it. The five best commenters for this coming week — from today, Friday, March 20 through Thursday, March 26 — will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Some people get cravings for sweets, while others’ mouths water for salt. And those poor salt-lovers don’t get any of the exciting, brightly colored snacks, which is a shame. Luckily for you salt enthusiasts, design student Roni Baram is trying to make your snack time more interesting with her pretzel ring embedded with salt diamonds, which is like a salty Ring Pop! If I had a bag of these, I’d put one on every finger, and then proceed to eat all 10. [StudentDesign.co.il] Keep reading »
