Mind Of Man: So Long As It’s Clean, Does It Matter What We Wear?

Let’s all agree that one thing that separates the sexes is the fact that women like to dress up in fancy clothes and look pretty and men also like it when women dress up in fancy clothes and look pretty. But men, however, do not like to dress up in fancy clothes and look pretty.

The Frisky’s 20 Best Piece Of Style Advice

I'm kind of in love with Lucky's December 2010 issue, which is celebrating the shopping mag's 10th anniversary by rehashing some of their best content. My favorite piece is the 100 fashion edicts that the editors live by — not dumb, lofty fashion tips like Rachel Zoe might suggest ("An elephant tusk will spice u…

Are We Letting Our Closets Weigh Us Down?

I have two big plastic bins of clothing I keep under my bed. One is full of off-season clothing, and the other is, I hate to say it, full of clothes that don't fit. Most of those items are too small — clothes I've outgrown but hang on to in case I ever reach my…

Kind Of Genius: Unbreakable Hangers

Here's one of those things that makes you go, "Why didn't I think of that?" Behold Monkey Hangers, which, quite clearly, are unbreakable hangers. I don't know about you, but replacing trivial household items—like hangers, which I seem to go through like a box of cereal—really annoys me. Can someone please bring the "unbreakable" concept…

Dealbreaker: He Hated My Clothes

I am newly single (again). After a fun, but exhausting, up-and-down five months, my boyfriend-ish-person and I broke up this week. I'm sad about it -- I really did fall for him and had so much fun with him. But I'm also a little relieved. The drama was wearing thin. Plus, he hated my clothes.

How To Get The Layered Look Right

After looking through this blog post of all sorts of beautifully (and expertly) layered folks on the street, I came to the following sartorial realization: creating a slim and cohesive layered look ain't all that easy. (Though this girl, above, certainly makes it look that way!) So many people (myself included sometimes) end up with…

Mind Of Man: Clothes Do Not Make The Man

To many women, looking stylish is a total obsession. And I don’t think you dress to kill to impress the men in your lives, because we just aren’t that picky, nor are our tastes refined enough to offer substantial critiques. I gave up watching "Project Runway" (the female equivalent of UFC) after the second seaso…

Why Don’t Men Ever Understand Our Clothes?

Michelle Obama's recounting of what Barack thinks of some of her fashion choices made us laugh. And then we started thinking, The president really is just another man! He doesn't understand women's clothing choices, just like practically every other guy we know! When we wrote up our list of 30 Things Women Love That Men

Necessary Luxuries: What We Won’t Give Up, Recession Be Damned

I wouldn’t consider myself to be a Grade A snob, despite what some may think. I may carry an expensive bag or be sporting expensive shoes, but chances are that I’m wearing Forever 21 everywhere else. I prefer a diner sandwich to a fancy meal, have cut myself off from mani/pedis and learned to polish…
