Because we love to be stylish and safe, we are digging these awesomely-decorated pepper sprays from Pepperface. Encased in sleek aluminum tubes in pretty purple, rocker black, or James Bond-esque 18-karat gold, you can ward off evildoers with major flair. A fave of celebs like Carmen Electra and Lindsay Lohan, these glammed up pepper sprays are pretty and protective. [$55 and up, Pepperface.com] Keep reading »
Maybe back in the day all you had to do was bat your eyelashes to get a man’s attention. Now you do it and people assume you have something stuck in your eye or a weird twitch. Blasted! Well, you can allude to the golden days of romance and chivalry with Stephanie Simek’s eyelashe necklaces, made of 100 percent human hair. We can’t figure out if it’s creepy, cool, or both.

You thought prom was a big fuss? Try the monstrous fashion madness that is the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala.
Hosted by Anna Wintour, the Met Ball is the tick that is Hollywood feasting itself on the blood of high fashion … Or is it the other way around? No one can really tell through all the air kisses and champagne fizz, but no problemo! All that matters is that if you’re a starlet who’s lucky enough to have a ticket, you can wear a dress that costs the same as an entire year of a private college education.
This caveat excludes most of us from going—but that doesn’t mean if you ever find yourself stuck in an elevator with Andre Leon Talley, you can’t at least know what you’re talking about. Here’s your cheat sheet on the exclusive Met Ball. Keep reading »
Apparently Nietzsche, like hipsters, wore a mustache while nattering on about how God is dead. Or so says Demitasse Jewelry vis-a-vis this funky little Nietszche ‘stache necklace. Sterling silver is the cheapest, but if you’ve got the money and a thing for philosophers, you can score a 14-karat one for $455. With all the coin we’ve spent on upper lip bleaching since puberty, this is just the kind of moustache we’ve been looking for! [Starting at $75, Demitasse Jewelry] Keep reading »
Writing an email, text, or memoir aren’t the only things you can do with a keyboard. You can let one hold all your junk and accessorize your outfit. That is, if you have a Keybag designed by João Sabino. Each Keybag is made from 393 keys or key fragments arranged in a random, unique order so that it becomes its own communication vehicle. Available in red, pink, black, and white, no tech-savvy fashionista or writer should be without one. [JoaoSabino.pt via Fashion Indie] Keep reading »
We’re still reeling from the news that the Miss California Organization paid for contestant Carrie Prejean to get fake ta-tas so she’d have a better chance of winning Miss USA. Tasteless? Yes. Uncommon? Unfortunately, no. We nosed around for other ways to “better” your body without breaking the bank. Keep reading »
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 »
