The Soapbox: Hating On Social Media Is Trendy, But It’s Also Wrong

Alone But Still Connected

It seems like lots of people lately wax poetic about the good old days before we were all staring at computer screens. Take, for example, the popularity of the “Look Up” spoken word video. I hear these complaints from mostly people my age, maybe a bit older, so we’re not that far apart in our experiences. Yet somehow they hold this belief that social media has led all of us down a path to “forever alone” hell that we’ll never recover from. Or something? I’m not entirely sure, as it’s pretty infrequent that these arguments actually point to data, but rather appeal to emotions. Keep reading »

Tights On Tap

Miu Miu Socks?
Guess how much these socks cost? Read More »

As we settle deeper into fall and winter, it’s inevitably time to take stock of your tights options. If you’re anything like me, you’ve got a rather extensive collection of somewhat ratty, ripped and worn out stockings in dire need of replacement. And that’s why I’m so happy that there’s a new service, for people just like us. Pique is a new online service that sends you new tights each month. You fill out a simple style survey and can begin receiving hosiery in the mail immediately. My first month, I received a smashing pair of fishnet tights and a darling set of fishnet sock stockings. Because you can never have too many tip top tights, if you ask me. [$34,83, Pique]

FoodSexVideo.com: Cooking For Hot Girls

I can’t speak for the rest of The Frisky staff, but my own cooking skills are fairly limited. (And by “fairly limited” I mean eggs and pasta are about the extent of it.) It’s not that I’m not interested in learning how to cook, it’s more the fact that most of my hobbies revolve around shoes — as in I literally did ballet for the ballet slippers when I was younger — and that’s a rather hard habit to break. So when I met the Cook In Heels a few months back and she told me about the blog she was working on, I got pretty effing excited (and did a video for her about hot date food!). The pseudonymous chef posts recipe videos on FoodSexVideo.com every ten days or so, scattered sexy food content during the week, and hilarious, filthy little shorts, too. If red patent pumps can’t get a girl like me to cook, I don’t know what can … Keep reading »

Turn On Your Webcams For Donatella Versace

For many, the chance to meet Donatella Versace will never happen. But this Friday, the uber-bronze designer is changing all that by giving her fashion-crazy fans the opportunity to ask her questions online. Immediately after the Versace show, she’ll plop herself down in front of a video camera and respond in real time to queries from her fans. What does one ask Donatella? You only have a few days to decide, so hurry up and submit your question. Then, you can nervously count down the minutes to see if she’ll respond to yours. It’s not every day that one gets an audience with Donatella, after all. [WWD] Keep reading »

Hipster Puppies Are, Like, Much Cooler Than You

From squeezing into jeans skinnier than any person should ever wear to looking like you totally don’t give a crap about anything and constantly searching out appropriately ironic accessories, being a hipster takes effort. Now imagine doing all of the above without opposable thumbs or the ability to sigh in mock, all-encompassing boredom. Challenging? Hell yeah, it is. Yet the dogs on Hipster Puppies manage it on the daily. There’s Chuleta (seen here) jealously guarding her turntable on the lighter side of things (as in maybe she just moved to Williamsburg but doesn’t yet own more than two pairs of functionless eyeglasses). Then there’s a more hardcore hipster puppy, like Alcor, who “begrudgingly explained to his mom that wearing girl’s jeans doesn’t make him gay.” Check out a group of dogs that definitely know they’re cooler than you but don’t need to say it ’cause, like, it’s so obvious. Or whatever. [Hipster Puppies] Keep reading »

Watch Fashion Shows From The Comfort Of Your Couch

As of today, Fashion Week is officially underway, but with the snow and cold temperatures, getting around in New York City is simply treacherous. This weather makes you want to sit on your couch in PJs and catch up on daytime television, doesn’t it? Thankfully, 12 designers (so far!) have plans to embrace the internet during Fashion Week and will livestream their shows online, which means not only is it possible to stay at home to see the new fashions, but for those whose invitation got lost in the mail, it’s still possible to attend. You can watch Marc Jacobs’ celeb-free show on his website, catch Rodarte and Alexander Wang thanks to ShowStudio, and preview the G-Star looks on their Facebook page. It’s fashion meets the tech world, and it’s much, much warmer in here. [My It Things] Keep reading »
