Last time I checked, cooking for groups on a hot summer day was on my “Top Ten list of Things I Don’t Want To Do”…until I was stuck with an apartment full of people to feed on a sweltering weekend in NYC and nowhere to hide. Out popped this pasta dish that actually peaks in flavor when it’s served at room temp. If you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, refrigerate the pasta and once you’re ready for re-service, let it sit out for 15 minutes before giving it a good stir and maybe another drizzle of olive oil and some salt and pepper. And pssst – this is one of those recipes that sneaks in under $15. Keep reading »
Depending on your values, you might think spending more than $1,000 on a handbag is ludicrous. Or you might think a quilted Chanel bag is an investment. If you fall into the latter category, how would you feel about an $18,000 fly-fishing rod? Chanel is offering such a rod, along with a set of monochrome Chanel flies (complete with the double “C” logo on gossamer wings and a quilted black leather box). At first I thought, Coco Chanel must be turning over in her grave! but The Guardian reports that she was a tomboy who fished while dating the Duke of Westminster in the ’20s.

Catherine owns this long necklace with a smallish spectacles charm danging from it. This is a much larger version, modeled after Brit-pop icon Jarvis Cocker’s glasses. They won’t help you with your far sightedness, though. [$68.72 (converted from British pounds), TattyDevine.com] Keep reading »
Just because a dress is long and covers your stems, doesn’t mean it can’t be sexy – after all, leaving something to the imagination can be awfully alluring. Maxi (or long) dresses are all the rage for summer – while the airy skirt still keeps you cool, there’s the added protection from UV rays as a bonus, if you’re worried about that kind of thing. Catherine is – she just spent the weekend at the beach and came home with a nasty, splotchy, and painful burn all over the tops of her shins, so she’ll be living in dresses like these for the rest of the summer.

What’s better than getting flowers? Getting Prada’s gorgeous floral high heels! From peep toes with flower rhinestone encrusted stilettos to bright pink petal heels, there are lots of styles to make you feel funky fresh or super sleek and sophisticated. While the pumps may cost a pretty penny, nothing says summer quite like a beautiful bouquet — especially if it’s on four-inch stiletto sandals! Keep reading »
Jerry Hall, the supermodel from Texas that married Mick Jagger in 1990, has dumped more than just the frontman of the Rolling Stones. Hall is auctioning off her bridal dress, as well as the wedding gift he gave her, an embroidered Japanese kimono, for a modest $600-a-piece. While she’s looking to clean out her closet and donate the proceeds to homeless charity Emmaus, she has kept the prices cheaper than Jagger’s affairs! [Daily Mail]

Catherine took this picture with her camera phone this weekend and sent it to me. Fake hickey tattoos! Sadly, she didn’t buy them. I forgave her once she found the website where you can order them online — my Lindsay Lohan Halloween costume is almost complete. [Fortune3.com] Keep reading »
A trip to the beach this weekend left me with some pretty nasty sunburns. Yes, I applied sunscreen. SPF 30, in fact. Apparently that wasn’t enough, and now I need to figure out what I can wear that won’t inflict more pain (and will distract my coworkers, who keep coming over to gawk at my crayon-red splotches). This blouse-y t-shirt from Old Navy will let my burns breathe while making me look slightly nautical. I did just come back from the seashore, after all. [Old Navy] Keep reading »
Summer is in the air, a time of year to get in touch with your softer side — softer hairstyles (my favorite being soft, loose, beachy-waves), softer makeup, softer colors, and softer silhouettes. While my personal style is kind of on the edgy/eclectic side, I have a friend who seldom navigates away from flirty, ultra-femme styles. She rocks this look everywhere, from formal dates, to casual dates, from upscale bars to seedy, dive bars, this gal loves to embrace her femininity. This style is also a favorite of one of my favorite fashion trend-setters, Zooey Deschanel (one half of Frisky favorite, She & Him), who appropriately graces the cover of Lucky‘s July issue in a sweet floaty number, a style she’s loved for as long as she can remember.
