Gear: OneLessDesk
Heckler Design’s whip-smart, two-piece stainless steel desk nests into itself (a mere foot deep when stowed), and also features a concealed shelf, tidy wire/cord storage, and four holes to anchor laptop cable locks — though if you have four laptops, wouldn’t you be more at home taking up half a Starbucks?

Sneak Peak: National Bra Fit Week!

In honor of National Bra Fit Week, us Frisky girls went to get fitted for bras, since we were all pretty sure we were wearing the wrong size. You’ll see the results of our bravery next week, but here’s a little taste of what the women at Bra Smyth had to deal with when Simcha and her DD’s came in for a fitting.

StyleHiving: The Mini Dress

Ever since Gossip Girl Serena van der Woodsen sexily draped herself over a pool table in a black studded Catherine Malandrino shift dress while on her first date with the loveable Dan Humphrey, I had to stop and reassess my opinion of the mini dress as date wear. Off to Bloomingdales I went where I purchased my first ever mini dress, which had me asking: ‘where have you been all my life’ the second I slipped it on.

The magic of a mini dress, like the one worn by Serena, is that it strikes the perfect balance between revealing and reserved. The daring length is countered by the absence of cleavage and an ultra formfitting silhouette for a look that still leaves much to be desired. I wouldn’t recommend this look if you’re, say, going bowling, but for a dinner date or drinks, whip it out and work it. Keep reading »

“I Was Raped” Shirt Sparks Controversy & Discussion

So, what do you think of this t-shirt? Kind of hard to read right? Made by writer, journalist, and feminist activist Jennifer Baumgardner (author of Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism And The Future), the shirt reads, in small print, “I Was Raped” on a small placecard inside an image of a safe. A follow-up to a shirt she made last year, which said, “I Had An Abortion”, Baumgardner hopes that the shirt will encourage women to be open about their experience with sexual assault and “divest themselves of some of the shame and secrecy of it.” Profiled in today’s New York Times, she also says, “By having an object like this” — a simple T-shirt — “that’s so mundane, it sort of forces it into everyday conversation….The wearer isn’t advertising that he or she was raped, but rather opening up to you, the viewer, and also saying that this is a small part of who he or she is.”

Style On The Street: Rainy Day Chic

Spring is a lovely season, except when it rains — a regular occurrence. Our friends at Trender Bender alerted us to this lovely lady, who knows that wearing pants on a wet day means you’ll end up wearing wet pants. Platforms, however, keep you above the puddles. [Trender Bender] Keep reading »

Crave: Bare Back

Did you watch American Inventor? I didn’t. But apparently there was this genius invention on the show — a completely backless bra. The design is so simple, it’s pretty crazy nobody had thought of it before. But hooray for Elaine Cato, the inventor, because Maidenform thought it was pretty great and they started selling her Breakthrough Backless Bra last week.

Woody Allen Beats Off American Apparel

American Apparel is known for perverse ads which feature their scantily dressed female employees. Although, CEO Dov Charney has already been sued by some of his former employees, he believes in equal opportunity, or so he said in a deposition tape, “I frequently drop my pants to show people my new product.” Vomit. But now someone with a little more to his name is suing American Apparel. Woody Allen, who was featured in a few ads in 2007, including a billboard in New York City, is suing the company for using his image. If you’re afraid to see Woody bent over wearing nothing but a neon g-string and some tube socks, fear not, the ad is actually just of his face — a shot of him dressed up like a Hasidic Jew from his classic romantic comedy Annie Hall. According to our friend Nachshon, who translated, the ad’s slogan reads in Yiddish, “The Holy Rebbie,” which essentially means Woody Allen is Dov Charney’s perv hero. Allen isn’t honored, and just slapped American Apparel with a $10 million dollar lawsuit. While Charney might get away with the ads by calling them “parodies”, it’s comical that someone found a way to make Woody Allen feel violated. [Ad Week]
