Five Reasons We Wish We Still Wore Size 6X

Most of the time, I love being an adult. I can decide when to go to bed (or not), eat an entire package of Sour Patch Kids at the movie theater before dinner, and wear skirts of questionable length. But, every now and then, I wish I were a kid again. Not for the lack of responsibilities or months-long summer vacations, but for the clothes. Today, Stella McCartney announced she’s launching a collection for GapKids and babyGap later this year. If only I could shrink down a bit, I could sport Stella’s designs for less than a gazillion dollars! Here’s what else rocks about shopping in the kids department. Keep reading »

“Ms. Taken” Engagement Ring Wards Away Slimeballs

Want to enjoy one night out without terrible pick-up lines, “accidental” groping, and lame dudes? Now, Mstaken.com sells an engagement ring (for $50) to avoid unwanted clingers. As the site instructs, “Slip on the ring—a little bright lie that says you’re married to the man of your dreams (whenever he gets here). When the coast is clear, stash your secret weapon in your keychain. Next time an unwanted suitor lurks near, tap your inner vixen and remember: you’re Ms. Taken!” One teensy problem? According to the guys at the blog Bar Stool Sports, wearing ring bling may actually encourage the unwanted suitors to pursue even more! Ah, the creme de la scum. Maybe Mstaken.com should sell pregnant body suits instead. [Bar Stool Sports]

Anyway, check out the company’s hilarious response to Andy Samberg’s “Saturday Night Live” digital short, “Jizz In My Pants,” called “Puke In My Mouth.” Keep reading »

Howl At The Moon!

We all had one. A kid in our junior high school class who wore a wolf T-shirt, I mean. That kid was ahead of the curve, as the wolf T is suddenly oh-so ironically in. The craze started when a T-shirt, with three wolves illustrated on it, went up for sale on Amazon and inspired fake review after fake review of how much customers enjoyed their purchase. Suddenly, the wolf T because the site’s number one best selling item in the apparel section. Here’s a sampling of the reviews that helped make it a best seller:

“I have been wearing this shirt for about 15 weeks and I have not needed to wash it! You don’t put this shirt on your torso you put it on your soul. The day I bought this shirt I lost 300 lbs!” —B.Prince

Blue Nails: Love It Or Loathe It?

A few years ago, we all fell hard for Chanel’s black nail polish. Celebs started sporting this goth color and soon it spread faster than the H1N1 virus. But can they cause another nail craze again? Come summer, most of us turn to bright pinks, corals and reds when we head into the nail salon (if we head in at all); however, this summer may be different…Read More Keep reading »

Jetsetting Goes High Fashion With New Missoni Hotel And Others

Designers these days aren’t just about producing goods, but rather about lifestyle branding. In order to live, breathe, eat, and sleep the label, fashion hotels have been popping up, the latest of which comes from Missoni. Opening its doors in Edinburgh, Scotland, the place is decked out in Missoni’s signature prints, which find themselves on everything from the sheets and towels to the walls and decorative vases. [This would make me very dizzy. -- Editor] The Italian aura pervades throughout with a Missoni coffee bar and spa. Missoni is moving fast on the trend; the Scotland location will be followed shortly by a similar outpost in Kuwait (of all places). [HotelMissoni.com]

The hotel claims to be innovative by offering affordable luxury—rooms start at around $340 per night, which is (shocker!) quite the pretty penny. You may find, however, that the price pales in comparison to other truly exorbitant designer hotels. Read on to get the skinny on other designer hotels in Milan, Australia, and Paris. Keep reading »

What To Wear To The Five Most Random Fashion Weeks Around The World

Move over New York, Paris and Milan, you no longer have the monopoly on Fashion Week. The three fashion capitols of the world are no longer the only cities drawing the well-heeled to their runways. Name a country, chances are it has a fashion week. Of course the big question is: What does one wear to those tents of fashion glory? Well, actually, the big question might be where in the world are some of these cities, but that’s a whole other can of designer worms. While Chanel works in Paris, I was not so convinced about what to wear to Fashion Weeks in more unusual locales. After consulting the map I have come up with the five most unusual Fashion Weeks I would go to and what I would wear to each. Keep reading »

French Elle De-Glams Scarlett Johansson

French Elle has bitch slapped the fashion and beauty industries with their most recent cover. Again. For the second time this year, their cover shoot was minimally made up and, dare I say it, almost natural looking. We loved when they shot hottie model Eva Herzigova sans makeup a couple months again, putting her in a pared down white blouse and similarly laid back hair.

This time though, we weren’t so thrilled. Yes, we applaud the move away from airbrushed impossibility in the general sense, but Scarlett Johansson’s cover is a tad confusing. She’s minimally made up and there doesn’t seem to be blatant airbrushing, but the clothing is a bit trampy, the hair super boring and the expression utterly vacant. This one’s just not doing it for us. Keep reading »

The Japanese Face Slimmer Leaves Us Speechless, Literally

If you want a thinner face or you are into Darth Vader chic, then I have the product for you. After mulling over the absurdity that is the Japanese Face Slimmer I understand the beauty process as follows: the mask smushes your face to slim it down. First, it melts the fat off your face by massaging your facial dermis—I have always thought there was a fine line between massaging and mauling. Then, the sweat produced from the poorly-ventilated mask combined with the sweat from your chubby cheeks acts as a sauna.

If you have the self-confidence to actually wear this face mask, then kudos to you. For the rest of us who lack egos of steel, a good (or even mediocre) bronzer can fake high cheekbones without the risk of permanently scarring your cat/boyfriend/neighbors, etc. [$32, Japanese Face Slimmer, Amazon] Keep reading »

Pee Like A Lady With These On-The-Go Products

It’s fun having choices: decaf or regular, hair up or hair down, spider maki roll or spicy tuna roll… and now you can choose a device to pee. Whether you’re at a concert, in the woods, or just need to pee next to a parked car leaving a club one night, portable urinating devices allow you to keep some dignity when peeing au natural, and prevent your clothes from getting urine splash stains—it’s gross but true!
