Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Category Archives: Style
Welcome to Would You Rather, a game in which we concoct hypothetical style dilemmas and ask you to choose which option’s worse.
There’s been a lot of talk lately about Miss Taylor Momsen‘s style. She’s doing the whole rebellious teenager thing, which, to be honest, is cool — we get it. (Full disclosure: Some of us were goths back in the day.) Girl has got a lot of guts but at the same time gets a bit more territorial about her image with each day, describing it as “high-class hooker” and saying she can’t stand leather jackets on pop stars. Moving on: Justin Bieber is a clean-cut pop star who dresses nothing like Taylor Momsen but kind of looks like a tomboy girl most of the time. So, which teen star’s wardrobe would you rather have? You have to choose! Keep reading »
The Gap is usually a go-to for our fall shopping, so we were pleasantly surprised to see this Groupon offer land in our inbox this morning: Sign up for the deal and you’ll only pay $25 for $50 worth of merchandise in stores. For those not familiar with Groupon, it’s a sort of local coupon service where retailers and business owners can offer you a deal, but only if enough people participate (or sign up) for the deal. If the offer goes through, you pay online and print out your certificate. So, if you already know you’re going to spend $50 at the Gap (um, today), might as well get in on the coupon now to capture the savings opportunity. [Groupon] Keep reading »
Distressing, but not altogether shocking news from the Britney Spears’ rumor mill; according to a source who spoke with Heat magazine, Brit’s boyfriend Jason Trawick is getting fed up with her poor hygiene. Spears goes days without showering and changing her clothes — not to mention her weave — and as a result, the source says, “She hates washing her hair, so sometimes it can smell downright sour.”
Sigh. Britney, my sister, I feel you on the not -showering-and-washing-your-hair thing. But allow me to introduce you to my new best friend in my quest to skip washing my locks: dry shampoo. Keep reading »
If you could translate my underwear drawer into a pie chart, you’d see one big chunk—some 75 percent — dedicated to basic black bikinis. A small 20 percent would indicate the ratty days-of-the-week skivvies that are verging on seven years old (I know). The remaining sliver would count for the few “sexy” underthings I own—a lacy pink thong, a hot but poorly fitting corset-inspired bra, some sheer boyshorts.
There are certain things I hate to spend money on, and underwear is one of them. In the past, the idea of wearing seductive undergarments had always been appealing, but when I really thought about it, lingerie seemed problematic. First of all, I’d need someone to wear it for, because that ladymag tip of “wearing sexy underwear for yourself” has never done anything for me. Also, was it worth it to drop the money? Assuming I had someone who would appreciate it, wouldn’t it just come off right away, or remain completely covered for most of its time out of the drawer? Keep reading »
