Frisky Q & A: Sassy Editor Christina Kelly Weighs In On Life, Today’s Teen Media, And Cute Bands

To us Gen X ladies, Sassy was the ultimate teen magazine. Each issue left us feeling a little cooler, because we weren’t just in the know—we were in the know. And no one was more responsible for that feeling than editor Christina Kelly. Her columns “What Now” and “Cute Band Alert” were everything a 16-year-old, flannel-wearing girl wanted or needed. Plus, she wrote the mag’s infamous Kurt and Courtney cover story. The woman was idol-worthy.

It’s been four years since her last job as Editor-in-Chief at ELLEgirl magazine. Since then, her name has been missing from mastheads. But now she has joined the blogosphere—cheers!—with Fallen Princess, a site where she discusses everything from her love of “Glee” to her thoughts on being a mom. After the jump, The Frisky sits down and asks Christina a few questions. Keep reading »

Fake Karl’s Advice For Coping With The Recession

Sure, the recession has hit us normal people hard. But no one, according to Fake Karl, has it quite as bad as the wealthy fashionistas and fashionistos out there.

Street Style Blogs Passe; Vlogs Where It’s At


We’re not ashamed to admit that we’re full-on street style blog addicts. (Although, mainly out of jealousy of their impeccably-dressed subjects.) We’re noticing that the genre is moving to a different level after seeing real-style documentarians move to video platforms, which gives a whole new feeling to street style. We recently came across Vimeo user Jake Davis’s dreamy Test Shot videos, which offer a more poignant look at the featured person’s outfit through slow-mo close-ups and smooth beats. His short movies go beyond the aesthetics of style, and begin to talk more about the person behind the clothes, almost like a mini-narrative. Check it out! [Vimeo] Keep reading »

In Case You Care: Bee Shaffer Has A Blog, Doesn’t Have A Copy Editor

Bee Shaffer, spawn of Anna Wintour, has launched herself a blog called New York Notebook. In the About section: “Hi I’m Bee Shaffer. You might know me from gossip blogs and others, but let me tell you, you ain’t seen nothing yet. This page is where I write my thoughts and observations about life, fashion, people and other things.” Huh, that’s funny, because hasn’t Miss Shaffer been famously quoted as saying, “I really don’t want to work in fashion.”

OK, whatever, young people are allowed to change their minds any number of times in their life. (God knows we have.) And to her credit, the title “New York Notebook” is really quite catchy. However, you’d think that perhaps the daughter of one of the most famous magazine editors in the world would have learned a thing or two about copy editing (or writing in general, for that matter) before posting her prose for the world to see. Just a few glaring errors that we can’t quite get over, after the jump … Keep reading »

Funny Blog Alert: Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber

I will admit that I really didn’t know who Justin Bieber was until recently. I guess that’s a good thing since I am no longer 11. Apparently this tween heartthrob has been taking his style cues from the lovely lesbian ladies of this country. A new blog, Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber, is calling him out on his blatant style biting. From his haircut to his hoodies, they’ve got Justin’s number. For example, have you ever noticed how Justin Bieber bears an uncanny resemblance to Kim Stolz from “America’s Next Top Model”? After the jump, see some more of the incriminating evidence.

Things That You Didn’t Notice “Doing It” But Totally Are

Because I have the sense of humor of a 13-year-old boy in the throes of puberty, I tend to enjoy fart jokes, penis jokes, and this new website Because we live in a magical world where beautiful things happen daily, you’d better believe that humans “accidentally” put penises, vaginas, boobs, and butts into everything they create … in architecture, advertising, technology, urban planning, and religious paraphernalia for starters. My favorite is the wall which creates little glowing penis-shaped shadows. And not only do humans do it, but nature does it too with fruits, vegetables, trees, clouds. That’s right, God likes penis jokes too! This means it can’t be wrong to enjoy them. It also means that God has an awesome sense of humor, which we already figured out when we had sex for the first time. [Things That Are Doing It] Keep reading »
