DIY: Instant Art

Looking to make your cell of an apartment a little less depressing without pissing off your crotchety landlord? Painting your blues away will also mean kissing your deposit good bye and those N’Sync posters are kind of unacceptable at this point. So what’s a budget-conscious girl to do?

Though the options outside of boy bands and large scale art are admittedly slim, check out Kate’s Paperie or Papyrus for vintage-looking wrapping paper sheets worthy of framing. Blown up maps and post cards, old school anatomy textbook images and embarrassing ’70s yearbook pictures are looking for a home at less than $4.50 a pop.

Slide the poster-sized sheets into cheap as hell frames from A.I. Friedman and just wait for your friends to jealously ask where you got your new art. Be sure to tell them it’s from a gallery in SoHo or Paris. Feeling just a tad superior is half the fun. Keep reading »

Style On The Street: Jumpers For Adults

This girl is wearing what I call a “jumper” and others call a sleeveless dress with a shirt underneath. What a wonderful way to wear favorite summer dress during the winter!

Yes, Folks, These Are Scary Times

It’s fun to look at men’s fashion show photos, if only to look at the models and their taut bodies. But the guys walking at Gareth Pugh, John Galliano, and Alexander McQueen didn’t look hot. No, they looked scary. In fact, they looked a lot like zombies. Could this be a pop culture trend in the making? Are zombies going to become the new vampires? One pop culture seems to think so. Or maybe the models are just depressed about the grim state of the economy. [NY Mag] Keep reading »

Slideshow: The Frisky’s Favorite Plus Sized Pin Ups

Big girl bombshell Beth Ditto has already made us swoon with her songs and her sass, but now she’s going to conquer a business that has typically seemed a little small minded for a lady like her- fashion. Known for her outtasight onstage getups made of metallic spandex and her tasty Tracey Turnblad-esque print dresses, everyone has been taking notice of the lead singer of The Gossips’ bold personal style and sense of self- especially Lisa Marie Peacock. The head designer of Evans’, a plus size chain store in the UK, is reportedly canoodling with the saucy singer about rocking her look for the clothing line. Set to debut this June, it sounds like Beth’s got big plans to wrap the whole world in gold lamé! But even more than the news of her desire to dress us up in her love is the fact that she’s among a growing crop of cuties with a bootie getting noticed for all their assets. Empowering people of all sizes makes every lady look and feel her best. So, in honor of the women who are showing the range of size stardom can come in, here are the Frisky’s favorite Plus Size Pin Ups:

Is Pink The New Black For Men?

For the most part, men have three color choices when it comes to suits: black, gray, and navy blue. They’ve been able to expand their shirt and tie options from the traditional white, blue, white and blue striped, and white and blue checked over the years, and perhaps the increase in popularity of golf and other country club sports made it more common for men to wear pale pink and purple shirts and ties. Pink has become a much more acceptable color for guys than it was just a few years ago, and it might soon be as acceptable as it was in the early 1900s.

Suits in practically fluorescent shades of pink came down the runways at the Fall 2009 Dolce & Gabbana show, the Spring 2009 Givenchy and Calvin Klein shows. And Refinery 29 spotted men wearing the neon shade on men outside fashion shows, too. Most guys I know probably won’t be suiting up in hot pink for work, but celebs like Kanye West and Pete Wentz would definitely throw one on for a premiere or a party. And I have a feeling we’re going to start seeing men wear this color a whole lot more often, even if only on their socks. Keep reading »
