Do Not Want: Death Kitty Tutu Shorts

OK, I love shorts, I love sheer, I even love (some) layered skirts. But combining them all into one mess of a piece of clothing is just abominable. These are like if Sporty Spice and Hello Kitty were put into a blender, ingested by Britney Spears, and then vomited up into a pair of shorts. I’m not sure whom these are intended for but in the description they are said to be “great under your tutu.” How often are you faced with that problem, “Oh, I really want to wear my TUTU but I just don’t know what to wear underneath it!”? Well, now you know: man’s oldest problem solved with really ugly shorts. Thanks, internets. [$24, Chaotic Clothing] Keep reading »

All-Natural Pit Stick

Some scientists believe there’s a link between breast cancer and aluminum — which is one of the main ingredients in most antiperspirants. Enter Duross & Langel’s line of all-natural, aluminum-free deodorants. They are effective and both earth- and health-conscious. I’ve been making the trek to the company’s Philadelphia store for my balms and unguents, but I’ve just discovered they sell online too! I love their deodorant–it smells great, is all-natural and really works.

Is The Problem With Plus-Size Fashion In Fashion Schools?

In the debate about plus sizes in fashion, there seem to be few solutions. Perhaps the place to start, however, is not by going straight to the solution, but asking why we have no answers. The Los Angeles Times brings up some points that delve deeper into the economic rather than moral side. First of all—why is the fashion industry geared toward smaller sizes when it would seem the money is to be made by producing larger sizes, due to the fact that there are more overweight Americans than model-sized Americans?

Apparently, it’s not just a question of designers not wanting to create plus sizes; it’s also a mechanical matter of not knowing how to do it, or not being able to make a runway look larger without it turning into something completely different … Keep reading »

Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Get Diamond Teeth Like Kanye’s (Besides The Obvious)

Kanye West has done some really stupid things. So are you surprised that he went out and had diamonds permanently drilled into his bottom teeth? OK, maybe not so surprised. But still kind of astounded by the stupidity, especially after learning from The New York Daily News that this type of cosmetic enhancement is pretty risky. For starters, it’s not so healthy (ya think?) and one dentist says: “Diamonds are very hard, and this hard surface should not be used on the biting side of a tooth … Since diamonds are harder than your teeth, you will wind up breaking or wearing down your other teeth, causing you to need more dental work.” What else? Bleeding gums (gross). And if you choose to get the diamonds drilled directly into your teeth (as apposed to using a strong glue), and something goes wrong with the tooth, then you have the added cost of replacing the tooth and the diamond (assuming you still want it there).

Our question is … what credible dentists are actually doing this to people? [New York Daily News] Keep reading »

Anonymous Street Artist Wins TED Award For His Moving Public Work

Anonymous street artist JR was awarded a $100,000 TED Prize this week for his impressive public art endeavors. JR makes intensely large photographs, which he then wheat pastes into a variety of locales, transforming his surroundings. The photo above is from an installation he did in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. After the jump, check out a video of the artist’s “Women Are Heroes” work, which was pasted up in Paris, and features blown-up images of women during wartime. The piece turns the typical male gaze on its head by featuring the eyes of women peering over the water. The wheat pastes were left up even as they deteriorated. Keep reading »
