Fashion Slideshow: Sexy And Comfortable Lounge Wear

We all have an abundance of random T-shirts, boxers and sweatpants. You know, stuff that you wouldn’t want to be caught dead in, but is extremely comfortable. So, it’s pretty easy to get into a style rut when it comes to lounge wear. To combat this problem, we came up with 10 picks for sexy, yet comfortable lounge wear. And we’re pretty sure you won’t be ashamed when you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror. Keep reading »

Happy 15th Birthday Bust Magazine!

Last night, The Frisky’s Emily and I celebrated 15 years of Bust magazine in a circus tent packed with crafty, sassy, stylish babes and their gay boyfriends. Performances by booty beat internet icon Leslie Hall (who autographed the concert t-shirt her mom sold me), burlesque style strippers like Peekaboo Pointe, Amy Sedaris, DJ JD Samson from Le Tigre, and drag king lounge act lover Murray Hill are how these girls like to get down! The ladies of Bust are a good time — and not just because they gave away 500 vibrators to the crowd. Since 1993, they’ve also given women’s mags an irresistible edge. In a market flooded with stupid self-help tips and fashion for stick figures, they showcase women who are hip, hot, and, above all, their outrageous selves. The mag is not afraid to support the freaks and geeks that are flying in the face of traditional pre-packaged celebs. They put revolutionary people in print, without discriminating based on looks and marketing machines. They go for vigilantes with vaginas who are shaping our generation of bad ass bitches. Like their favorite women, Bust does what it wants and it really has an eye — they’ve featured cover girls like Amy Poehler, Beth Ditto, Bjork and Charlotte Gainsbourg. So, congratulations Bust! You keep the magazine rack well-rounded. Keep reading »

Crave: Klein Canvas Tool Bag

OK, so call us crazy, but this tool bag would make the chicest handbag because it has the same classic shape as some high-end purses, it’s just more unexpected. Made of rugged, durable canvas and moisture-resistant vinyl, this tool bag would make the perfect everyday purse because its natural and cognac colors go with pretty much everything. Although we’d caution against loading it up with non-essentials, because the steel-framed opening will add weight. We’d feel so chic wearing this with a floral summer dress.

Fashion Slideshow: Lucky Shops

Lucky magazine has a habit of telling us about new designers, cool collaborations, and amazing deals, so we’re pretty excited about LuckyShops, a shopping event the mag puts on with current and off-season items at up to 70 percent off retail, complimentary cocktails, and great goody bags. The event takes place November 7 and 8 in New York, and tickets are now on sale (starting at $20) and include a year’s subscription to Lucky. In preparation for the shopping extravaganza, we put together a slideshow showing off a few of the designers whose clothes and accessories were sold at LuckyShops last year…but for way cheaper.

Crave: Enamel Bow Earrings

Gossip Girl and its amazing clothes return to TV September 1. If your style is more Blair than a Serena, but you don’t have a Waldorf-sized bank account, accessorize your ladylike wardrobe with these mini enamel bow earrings. [$9, FredFlare.com] Keep reading »

Crave: Threaded Peep-Toe Pump

Last winter I searched everywhere for a pair of red CFMPs in my budget to wear to my journalism school graduation. I didn’t find them and ended up settling on a pair of leopard-print pumps instead. I didn’t give up my quest, though, and was really excited when I saw this pair in a Victoria’s Secret catalog yesterday. The platform peep-toe pump is not new, but the details on these are sick. I love, love, love the snakeskin embossing on the heel and platform and the stitching adds a menswear-vibe, making these pumps perfect with pinstripe wide leg trousers. And of course, they’ll look equally sexy with nothing else, too. [$120, J.LO by Jennifer Lopez, Victoria's Secret] Keep reading »

Stupid Trend Alert: Band-Aids As Fashion Accessory

Now that Brazilian fashion designer Alexandre Herchcovitch has designed a line of boldly patterned Band-Aids, fashion people are trying to convince the world that these bandages are the must-have accessory, even equating it with a bracelet or handbag. But any sane person over the age of 5 knows this is a load of bull. As someone that occasionally walks into walls, I have a real problem with broadcasting my accident-prone tendencies. I’d prefer to just wear a temporary tattoo or a Swarovski crystal tattoo or stick with my REAL kick-ass tats. Those at least don’t have the ick-factor of a Band-Aid.

Fashion types are known for wanting attention and I have no problem admiring someone’s style, but I refuse to give them my sympathy for a cut that probably doesn’t exist. Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes tried this fad in the ’90s and it didn’t work. Rapper Nelly adopted the Band-Aid look in ’00s and has since abandoned it. So fashion world that I know and love, please stop this stupid trend right now before all the editors at New York Fashion Week start looking like they went to New York Presbyterian Hospital instead of Bryant Park.

Crave: “Beverly Hills, 90210″ iPod Nano

This year is definitely looking up for Beverly Hills, 90210 fans. First, The CW network is bringing back the famous zip code with new drama and characters, but some of our old favorites are set to make cameos as well. And then, to our delight, Apple has released a limited edition iPod Nano 8GB that has custom laser etching with official Beverly Hills, 90210 artwork and each iPod in this 2,000 limited edition series is numbered. You can personalize it with your name or some other self-expression. We can’t think of a better way to catch up on Beverly Hills, 90210 and the new 90210 when it starts September 2.

Crave: Standing Nemo Vase

When we buy ourselves fresh flowers, we usually just stick them in an empty apple juice bottle. See, most of the vases we come across are a little too formal for our tastes, but these Nemo-shaped ones make us laugh because it looks like the fish are eating the flowers, which is just silly, because everyone knows fish prefer worms to daisies.
