Compassionate Fashion: Cute, Functional Pieces From Tiffany Cruikshank’s Fitness Wear Line!

Yoga teacher and wellness expert Tiffany Cruickshank teamed up with her friend Renata Facchini of Liquido to put together a limited-edition fitness wear line with a focus on styles that will hold up in everyday life as well as at the gym. I love the concept of BFFs working together, but what’s even better is that ten percent of the line’s proceeds will go toward Yoga Medicine‘s charitable initiatives. For years, I was never too into shopping for fitness wear (I always figured that money could be better spent on cute street clothes or a vacation because nobody I know ever sees what I wear to the gym anyway), but then I walked into one too many fitness gear sample sales this fall and became mesmerized by  Fabletics. Basically, I’m now hooked on window shopping for bright-colored leggings, so I love that buying something from this line contributes to a good cause!

So Many Looks To Try!

Last month, Cut Video released a timelapse film of a model showing off hair and beauty looks from the past hundred years. Now, they’ve released a sequel! Watch model Marshay take us through the decades with her gorgeous looks. Now all we need are Pinterest tutorials for all these styles so that I can inevitably screw them up. You can view both videos side-by-side here, and if you’re into this century-in-a-minute deal, take a look at this video featuring 100 years of dance and style, which is one of my favorite things on the internet ever.

Beauty Test Drive: Bite Luminous Creme Lipstick

Test Drive

In my ongoing mission to wear bold lipstick more regularly, I’ve been trying on whatever tubes of lipstick are put in front of me without much thought. When I swiped on Bite’s Luminous Creme lipstick, I fell in love. This stuff is the best. Keep reading »

Frisky Rant: The Problem With Target’s Plus-Size Lilly Pulitzer Collaboration

Frisky Rant: The Problem With Target's Plus-Size Lilly Pulitzer Collaboration

When Target announced that its latest collaboration would be with Lilly Pulitzer, the godmother of American resortwear and technicolor prints, reactions were mixed. Her fan base — crazy, evangelistic, largely white — was less than pleased, worried that their precious brand would be sullied by the unwashed masses plundering Target’s aisles in search of stretch pants and toilet paper. But, the plus-size fashion community rejoiced, because for the first time in Target’s history of designer collaborations, this collection would be available in larger sizes. Finally! As someone who toes the line between straight and plus size, the Target collaborations have long been something that I can just look at and never really get. Even though Lilly Pulitzer’s vision doesn’t precisely line up with my TBD summer 2015 lewk (Birkenstocks and smock dresses, probs), I was delighted to know that I would at least have the option of trying on a flamingo-print short set, or whatever. My dreams of rubbing shoulders with Mitzi and Bun-Bun at the club in Palm Springs have been dashed, though, because the plus-sizes will only be sold online. That’s fucked up.

How To Organize Your Fridge Like A Boss

I’m the type of person who constantly looks for household spaces to improve: I want a better-organized desk, better-organized cabinets, better-organized closets. But the one household space that drives me absolutely up the wall is the refrigerator, because negligence of the refrigerator can be both disgusting and costly.

I worked in grocery retail for more than three years, specifically in food production. That means that I spent an average of an hour a day, but up to my entire 8- or 9-hour workday, organizing refrigerators, freezers, and dry food shelves. But it’s one thing when your employer gives you all the tools you need to organize an industrial-size refrigerator, and quite another when you’re trying to keep tabs on your food in your own home. Most of us don’t grow up doing anything but sort of shoving food away, treating the refrigerator as a procrastination tool (“I’ll get to this later, maybe, or maybe not, I don’t know, I can’t see what’s in there so I don’t care anymore”) rather than, say, a health tool.

Ugg Boots Are Back, Discuss

Vogue has declared Uggs “back,” which leaves me to wonder: did they ever go away? Were they ever truly in to begin with or were they always just in a niche league of their own? “The Return Of The Ugg Boot” on British Vogue‘s blog asks, “In the last month, how many times have you declined to step into your razzle-dazzle heels and opted for a pair of Uggs instead? Once? Twice?” The answer is zero times, Vogue, but I haven’t been wearing razzle-dazzle heels too often lately either, so maybe I’m the wrong person to answer that question. Vogue continues to inform us in the post that we peasants at last have permission from the fashion kingdom to wear the boots once again, but only if we full a “five-rule definitive style code” when doing so. Whoever wears Uggs in 2015, aside from normcore enthusiasts and It Girls, does so because A) they rightly prioritize comfort in their lives or B) they are badass fashion bosses who do whatever they want, Anna Wintour be damned, so I’m not really sure who Vogue thinks they’re giving sartorial permission to at this point. Either way, I’m not sure whether their comeback is supposed to make me happy or sad, because while they really are a little bit fugly, they’re also the comfiest and loveliest gift you can possibly give your feet on a winter morning.
