Spring Trend We Can Get Behind: Full Skirts

There’s one thing Donna Karan, Louis Vuitton, Christian LaCroix, and Alexander McQueen agree on for spring: fabulous full skirts. While high-waisted jeans may still cause us to cringe at the mom factor, high-waisted skirts can make any woman look like a pin-up girl. Since the feminine silhouette of the skirt naturally blossoms at the bottom, it accentuates your waist and can even create one for boyishly figured types. It’s not magic, it’s just plain old-fashioned fashion. Five we really love, after the jump…

Hot Or Not? Leather Leggings

We’re big freaks for tights here at The Frisky — no matter the pattern, chances are Amelia, Catherine, Simcha, and Emily are rocking a pair at least three days out of the week (during the winter, of course). But what about leather (or lame and latex) leggings and tights? The leg wear has been seen on everyone from Lindsay Lohan to Frisky Patron Saint Rihanna, but our normally adventurous stems can’t quite wrap get with the Jazzercize look. Catherine says she only finds them acceptable on Rihanna, because she’s the awesomest, but finds them unwearable on regular folk. What do you think? Also, what happens if you get all sweaty in them? We’re reminded of that episode of Friends when Ross wears leather pants on a date and then can’t get out of them because he’s so sweaty, eventually dumping talcum powder all over himself while hiding in the bathroom. So funny. [My Fashion Life] Keep reading »

Would Eating Steak Make Me More Attractive?

Can a vegetarian and an omnivore have a lasting relationship? And what happens if one person has a gluten allergy and the other subsists on pasta? A Chicago Tribune article considers how people with eating issues fare in relationships. It seems, as with everything, that there aren’t any major trends (i.e., vegetarians have higher divorce rates!), and it just depends on the people involved. Some are willing to change, adapt, or look the other way when a bloody steak goes on the grill, while others won’t budge. Kathryn Zerbe, a psychiatrist who specializes in eating disorders, told the Tribune that food has a strong subconscious link to love. Turning your nose up at a partner’s food can feel like rejection, she said. Keep reading »

A Bed That’ll Truly Take You To Cloud Nine

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Toe Cleavage

Holy controversy Batman! I am an unabashed lover of toe cleavage — that little to major peek of toe that sometimes shows in low-cut high heels — and usually prefer a little cleave rather than none at all. But I was surprised to discover that there are people out there who are avidly opposed to toe cleavage in all it’s forms, from just a hint of big toe crook to all five toe bases exposed in all their glory. Of course, there are others who totally fetishize toe cleavage, like the person behind the blog Perversions of the High-Heeled Pump, who posts tons of celebrity pictures of celebrity toe cleave, not to mention vaguely creepy videos. In my opinion, I think a little toe cleavage is very sexy, and the fashion industry agrees with me. According to Wikipedia, “‘toe-cleavage shoes sans stockings’ are part of the ‘unwritten dress code’ of the ‘Voguette’, as dictated by the magazine’s longtime editor in chief Anna Wintour — ‘even in the bitter New York winter’.” And Manolo Blahnik famously said, “the secret of toe cleavage, a very important part of the sexuality of the shoe is that you must only show the first two cracks.” Word. But what about guys? Are they cognizant of toe cleavage? And if so, how do they feel about it? After the jump, thoughts from The Sensitive Guy, The Hipster Guy, and The Experienced Guy.

Crave: Get What You Want

Do you need help with something? Customizing a t-shirt might be a little passive-aggressive, but it could get you what you need. Or at least what you want. [$20 at HelpINeedHelp.com] Keep reading »

Free Cake!

That’s right: free cake! And you don’t need to go to Costco on the weekend to get a bite, you just have to go to Brides.com. The site is running a national designer cake contest and will give away the nominees — which are sure to taste as good as they look. The confections draw inspiration from designer Christian LaCroix and pop artist Wayne Theibaud to a chef’s grandma’s wallpaper. Although the website has finally found a better reason to marry than a green card, er, I mean love, the price tags may make you sicker than eating the whole thing solo — which is probably why they’re only giving the cakes away to brides. So, unfortunately, this sugar-lovin’ single gal can’t apply unless some sucker proposes soon. But, if you’ve already won someone’s heart, you can also win a cake by voting on your favorite entry. Dang, some girls have all the luck! [Brides.com] Keep reading »
