I love to wear t-shirts, but often don’t feel like they’re work appropriate, even though all of five people work in The Frisky‘s offices, so it’s not like going to work everyday is a full-on fashion show. That said, I like to pretend it is, but I would also like to be comfortable. Rose La Biche takes your average cotton jersey t-shirt up a notch, by adding cool nature meets urban touches, like the dope ruffled neck on the Coco design ($69), above. She also makes hoodies! Perfect, considering our office/runway is freezing. More pics of her creations, after the jump. [RoseLaBiche.com] Keep reading »
Are shorts up for debate? We think they may be, but even still, we think this summer wear can be quite cute, if you buy the right cut for your “body type” or whatever it is the women’s mags always tell you. This time around, we’ve picked out 10 pairs of shorts that are on the teeny side. Keep reading »
The temperature may or may not be warming up in your neck of the woods, but you’ve probably thought about — maybe even dreamed about — what shoes you’re going to wear this summer. (One of my favorite things about summer is that I don’t have to wear socks.) But before you start wearing flip-flops every day, know this: You need to ease your feet into whatever shoes you want to wear. Your feet get used to wearing heels, or boots, or whatever your footwear of choice happens to be, so they need a little time to adjust to something new. And, even if you have a favorite pair of shoes, try to alternate what you wear, and don’t forget to stretch your calves after wearing a pair of flat shoes for a while, as they can “strain the achilles tendon that runs from the back of the heel, and also the calf muscles in the back of the leg,” said Mike O’Neill, a spokesperson for the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists in the U.K. Or just go barefoot.

Week after week millions of viewers tune in for another gripping episode of pseudo reality series The Hills, oftentimes for reasons that they themselves don’t understand. Whether you love it or are fed up with all the hype and the never-ending Heidi vs Lauren feud, there’s no denying that this show is perhaps the guiltiest of guilty pleasures. While Lauren Conrad’s relationship track record is pretty bleak, her date-night ensemble choices have rendered her a bona fide fashion mini-icon. As long as you stay away from dating complete tools, borrowing a play or two from the LC fashion play book can really help you score big on your next date.

Available in three colorways, these distinctively camouflaged leather numbers come complete with a handy change pocket, because even in the heat of battle, it really sucks to break a 20. [Addict.co.uk] Keep reading »
Catherine and I wear dresses about four out of five work days, and not because we’re trying to dress up, be fancy pants, and impress anyone. We just like them. A lot. After the jump, some summer dresses we really like. Now if only our office building would turn the damned air-conditioning down. We’re freezing.
Mindy Kaling, who plays the awesomely ditzy yet somehow completely relatable Kelly Kapoor on The Office (and also writes many episodes of the show) has a blog called “Things I’ve Bought That I Love.” It is exactly the way you’d expect Kelly to write about her online shopping purchases, not to mention the way we would probably write about them too. In other words, clearly our people need to talk to her people and set up a meeting for us to become BFFs. FYI, we especially love this post on flats. [Note: Dinner party conversation starter: Mindy got her big break playing Ben Affleck in the off-Broadway play "Matt & Ben."]
