We don’t know about you, but we think this new Agent Provocateur commercial starring model Kristy Hume as a lady voyeur who isn’t afraid to videotape what she wants is pretty darn steamy. Confusing also! It seems the girl known as Betty Sue likes to watch more than she likes to make love, which is something of an inversion of the whole female-as-object way of doing sexy things previously. Now as for that BVD-clad man bouncing on the bed? We’re not so sure that’d be worth replaying. [Copyranter] Keep reading »
Forget Hillary Clinton‘s pantsuit (gladly) and Sarah Palin‘s banana clips (done). Here’s a political fashion statement far more palatable and subtle. According to The New York Times, female politicians pay worship to a particular shoe, a Kate Spade wedge called the Halle.

Comfortable, chic, and modest, it’s easy to see why the Halle would be favored by young political types who need to negotiate between poles of being too sexy or extremely dowdy.

What will you be doing at 4 p.m. today? If you’re at work, there’s a good chance you’ll be spending some time doing a little online shopping. Research shows that online shopping peaks at 4 p.m. on Wednesday and is a full 75 percent higher compared to other times of the week, like Monday mornings.

No doubt, surfing The Frisky is probably another way you escape work pressures, etc. What else do you do when you need a break from your job during the workday? And do you ever worry you’ll be “caught” by your boss or a nosy co-worker? [via Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Come September 10, we won’t be painting the town red during Fashion’s Night Out. Rather, we’ll be painting it khaki thanks to Chanel‘s special trio of nail polishes created in honor of the event. Looks like Chanel is positioning itself as the taste maker for nail polish trends (thank you for the gray and jade suggestions, we’re all about them) because these earthy hues are both innovative and excellent for fall. And of course, the perfect FNO souvenir! [Teen Vogue] Keep reading »
