Apparently, Brooke Shields recently tried on the jeans she wore in her famous 1980 Calvin Klein commercial. Yup, the very same ones she wore when she was 15 years old. Here’s what she said:
“My mom kept those jeans, she kept everything. I just found two pairs of those jeans … They didn’t look pretty, but they fit! I got those suckers zipped back up.”
Pretty impressive. Do you have any clothes like this laying around that you still fit into? Does it gross you out or make you proud? After the jump, find out what items Frisky staffers still squeeze themselves into. [Stylelist] Keep reading »
Have you ever heard the word “FUPA”? Basically, it stands for “Fat Upper Pubic Area.” I know; it isn’t pretty. I only learned it like a month ago, and it is pretty disturbing. But the last place I expected to see the acronym crop up was on a fashion blog. Still, The Cut has declared the “FUPA stamp” the new thing in designer tattoos (albeit temporary). Designer Marios Schwab tattooed his garments in the breast and genital area, leading The Cut to their trendspotting decree. See, a FUPA stamp is like a tramp stamp, only it’s up front. We think we’re going to pass for now. [The Cut] Keep reading »
Oh, dear. The latest doll to emerge from the Barbie I Can Be … line is the News Anchor Doll, and we’re going to bet her pinker-than-pink ensemble is going to rankle some feminist ire. Apparently, if you’re a girl, and you want to be a TV journalist, you must wear pink. Ideally, a pink ruffled skirt, a sparkly pink blazer, and a pair of pink-and-black high heels. Granted, “news anchor” would suggest she’s supposed to sit behind a desk and talk to the camera, but that mic in her hand and video camera would suggest she’s doing reports from the field. As someone who sometimes dares to generate some journalism, I am going to have to say that if I wore this outfit, no one would tell me anything interesting. [TBD] Keep reading »
Clogs came back. And they’ve yet to go away. We were slow to accept the clunky ’90s footwear, but have gradually learned to accept their place in the trend-o-sphere (and possibly in our closets). When we spotted these high heel clog boots on Asos, however, we did a full-on whaaa? The clog plus boot, eh? So what would you call these? Cloogs? Blogs? (Oh wait, no, that’s something else.) So here you have it, people: Cloogs. We should have known something like this would happen, but now we’re fully prepared for the next onslaught of clog-like footwear, including Clumps, Cligettos, Clogfoms, and Clog-Clops.
What do you think of Cloogs? We have to admit, we’d probably come around if they were styled with something hot. [Asos] Keep reading »
As I’ve mentioned before, my spirit animal is a mini-pony. There are two reasons for this: 1) They are super cute. 2) They are really short — and I’m really short, so I feel like we would get along. But! Aside from being my personal power animal, mini-ponies provide a valuable service to society — they are guide horses to the blind! That’s right, mini-ponies help fill the current shortage of guide animals. The Guide Horse Foundation of America can tell you everything you need to know about working with guide horses, including the fact that many of these darling mini-ponies opt to wear shoes on their tiny hooves for all the terrific work they do.
