I am a hairy person. Think of the hairiest person you know, then think hairier. Think “Harry and the Hendersons” hairy. Anytime I am within a tongue depressor’s distance of an aesthetician, they find something new to wax. (This is how I learned the hard way that upper-lip waxing is not something you should agree to do lightly.) I’m super laid-back in the vanity department, so I am pretty used to waxers offering — nay, begging — to rip hot wax off my eyebrows, my upper lip, my arms, my legs and my lady parts. What I am not used to, however, is the suggestion that I fly to Colombia to get liposuction. Keep reading »
We’ve never tried love potion, but we imagine the problem with it would be that a) it runs out, and b) it doesn’t actually work. What is completely charming us, however, is Wildfox’s “Love Potion No. 9″ T-shirt (which, unlike love potion, is reusable). With a soft texture and oversized fit, the graphics are the cherry on top with a spoof of Chanel’s iconic No. 5 perfume. Although it’s a bit pricey for a shirt, it’s the kind of thing we might just throw down for because there’s nothing better than finding a T-shirt that you can wear with your fancy duds and your ratty jeans.

People are apparently so desperate for free crap that they’re willing to line up in their underwear in the streets of New York City’s Soho neighborhood. This photo was taken as part of a marketing stunt by the retailer Desigual that went down in NYC yesterday. The catch: line up naked (well, nearly naked) outside the store, and the first 100 people would get free outfits (everyone else gets a 50 percent discount coupon). The rowdy underwear-clad crowd shouted things like “We’re getting naked!” which isn’t something you’d really want to hear (or see) from a stranger before 10 a.m. on a weekday. Maybe this is just our opinion, though? Would you stand around in your bra and panties in a public place if it meant getting a free outfit? [DailyCandy Twitter, CBS NY] Keep reading »

It’s hard to know what exactly is going on in this editorial from Numero #117. Model Constance Jablonski, who appears to be white, cavorts about in a series of Afro wigs while pushing an African-American child around in a stroller. In several photos, the model’s skin appears to have been lightly darkened. What do you think? [Fashion Senses] Keep reading »
