My current life/travel obsession is seeing the northern lights. I’ve been gleefully researching where and when I’d have the best chance of seeing them, and although Alaska, Sweden, and Norway all sound amazing, this time lapse video of the northern lights over Iceland this past winter might have just made my decision for me. It’s almost painfully beautiful. [Laughing Squid]
Kate Middleton wouldn’t go sailing in just any old thing. Nope, the future Queen of England (well, probably anyway) sails the high seas in only the best nautical wear money can buy — Balmain. Us commoners will have to settle for stealing her look at a pittance. Get the details after the jump! Keep reading »
Spring has sprung and with it, a new excuse to shop. As if you needed one. But what should you get? What does your closet desire, nay, need? We asked Katy Perry’s stylist Johnny Wujek, who you no doubt recognize from many “America’s Next Top Model” photoshoots, to give us his five fashion essentials for spring. If anyone gives you any lip about your next credit card statement, just blame it on his handsome face.
Catch the premiere of the anticipated new web series, ”Stylist on Set,” Wednesday, May 7 on Johnny Wujek’s official website. Get Your “SOS” fix on Twitter and Instagram.
I am so pumped that spring weather has arrived! Shorter hemlines, lighter fabrics and happier prints, GET AT ME. Speaking of the latter, one of my favorite trends for spring is fruit. Lemons, limes, strawberries, watermelon and pineapple abound in many of the textiles being used for everything from dresses and skirts to crop tops and rompers. Seriously, looking at that striped pineapple dress in the middle is making me both hungry and sartorially inspired. Click through for more fruity fashion…
After meeting internationally-known, award-winning boudoir photographer Angelica Roberts at this year’s Lingerie Fashion Week, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to pick her brain about her job and learn more about what’s involved in a boudoir shoot. What if I’m bloated from my period? Can you make me look slimmer? How do I prepare for a shoot? Angelica, whose work has been featured in “Vogue,” was happy to answer all of our burning questions about boudoir sessions— just in time for me to DO ONE! I’m super excited to work with Angelica, and I’ll obviously be writing about (and maybe if you’re lucky, sharing pictures from) my first boudoir experience on The Frisky, but until then, check out what she had to say to see if a boudoir shoot is for you. (Psst … it is!) Keep reading »
It’s been forever since I actually used a pencil (do I still remember how? Kidding! Kind of!), but after seeing this awesome set of hot pink “Clueless”-themed pencils, I’m ready to bring graphite back into my life in a big way. I actually used to have one of those feather pens that Cher uses in the movie (I used it to take my history tests in junior high), but these are way better. They’ll go perfectly with my plaid mini skirt, knee-highs, and the loqued out Jeep daddy bought me. [$8 for set of 6, The Carbon Crusader]
Cupcakes and macarons have had their day in the spotlight. I propose we elect these delightful little cakewiches — yes, I just made that up — as the latest “it” dessert. Easier to bake than a macaron and more portable than a cupcake, these treats have moved to the top of my must-bake list. Try one of these inventive recipes and report back on your favorites.
I’m suddenly majorly regretting our family’s decision to get rid of my grandma’s retro-riffic wardrobe after her passing because I just know it was full of dramatic tie-neck blouses in crazy prints and stripes. Then I really could have emulated Emma Stone’s look above, since blouses like hers are kind of hard to come by. Instead I settled on a button-up with similar vertical stripes and picked out a pair of black pumps with some special details around the toe and ankle. Topping everything off with a cropped tuxedo jacket and skinny jeans makes this graphic look even more modern. Get the look after the jump! Keep reading »
