15 Awesome Fashion Websites

Admittedly, I am a fashion junkie. Why lie? I love clothes and more than one person has assured me that clothes love me. What I don’t love, however, are snobby expensive clothes that only a very select few people in this world can afford to wear. Keep reading »

The Frisky Gift Guide: Your Awesome Four-Legged Friend

Our pets can be rather intuitive, but we doubt they know when it’s the holiday season. All they know is that you’re excited about something and, therefore, they feed off your energy. So this is still the perfect time to get your cat or dog something special or something they need. Your pet is your best friend through and through, after all. Keep reading »

Crave: Live Alone And Like It (Win A Copy!)

This little book of advice for single women was written back in 1936. The author, Marjorie Hillis, was a fancy pants editor at Vogue who was single until age 49, three years after this book was published. She didn’t seem to mind being a bachelorette and wanted her fellow singletons to live it up. Her old timey advice is amusing, but remains applicable – there’s even a chapter titled “Pleasures of A Single Bed.” [$11.89, Amazon.com]

We’re giving away five copies of Live Alone and Like It: The Classic Guide for the Single Woman, but you have to work if you want one. The five best commenters for this coming week—from today, Friday, Dec. 12 through Thursday, Dec. 19—will be awarded with one. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!

Last 31 Days Of 2008: Get A Bra Fitting

We already suggested that you should get rid of your gross underwear, but we also think it’s time to get some new bras. You may not know this, but you, like most women, are probably wearing the wrong size. A bra fitting at a reputable lingerie shop (the H&M underwear section doesn’t count) will fix that. So don’t be shy. We did it! And you can watch, after the jump… Keep reading »

What Will They Think Of Next

Last week, we told you about Bootie Pies, the boots made for wearing post-pedicure. Today we bring you Peeky Toes, a type of sock that would go well with your open-toe boots. You are supposed to put on these socks before they start polishing your toes so that your feet will stay warm while the polish dries. They even come in a “Luxe” version made from Italian spun cashmere and silk for the price of $60. If I’m going to spend that kind of money on a pair of socks, I think I’d want them to cover my toes.

Style On The Street: Black Dresses Don’t Have To Be Boring

I’ve worn the same black dress several times in the past couple months, and every time I wear it, Amelia says, “Ooh! I like your dress! Where’s it from?” She probably gets confused because I wear it with a different belt every time. The moral of this story is: You can wear the same black dress to every holiday party you have to go to. Just try it with another belt, switch up your jewelry, or change your shoes. Seriously, no one will notice. Especially Amelia. [Trender Bender]

Wedding Gift Bloopers: Homo, It’s Where The Heart Is

Dear loving friend or family member who bought me kitchen towels for my bridal shower,

Thank you so much for your wonderful gift. I know I already sent you a note for the present, but I felt the need to write again. Andy and I were just overwhelmed with the many generous and wonderful gifts we received, so it’s been six months since the shower and we have just gotten around to unpacking some of the things we put in storage. What a pleasant surprise to discover these towels, which you so cleverly crafted into a bow.

Once I untied them, I realized how cute the design is. Did you have a chance to actually take a look at them? I know Prop 8 wasn’t even in the collective consciousness when you bought them, so I find the inscription, HOME SWEET HOMO, to be a little puzzling. Is there something about Andy I should know? Did you find out about my little drunken incident in college? Or did you just not look closely enough when you picked these up in the sale bin at the dollar store? Either way, I think they’re fabulous. And I hope you don’t mind if I regift them to some of my favorite gays this Christmas. Somehow, I just think they’ll appreciate them a little more than I will.

All my love,
Annemarie Keep reading »
