Cheapskate: Walmart

I have a confession to make. I'm a little obsessed with Norma Kamali's line for Walmart. I've bought several of the well-made pieces this year, and I am constantly checking the site for new additions. I don't know how I missed the Sleeping Bag Jacket, which Erin has been sporting rather stylishly…

Creepy Onesies: When Did It Become OK To Sexualize Infants?

I am so not OK with the baby onesies above, or any of the others BuzzFeed found for "douchebags in training." [BuzzFeed]…

This Snuggie Impersonator Must Be Stopped!

I never thought I'd be sitting here today defending the Snuggie, but after coming across this blatant rip-off called the "KN Kozy," I feel like someone has to stand up for this gross injustice. Then again, upon closer inspection, we're strangely drawn to Karen Neuberger's ultra-plush copy. At $40 with a satin ribbon trim…

Urban Outfitters’ Ornament Flask: A Gift That Spreads Holiday Cheer

There are two types of holiday partiers: those who drink to enhance the merry quality of the season and those who drink to escape the torture of it. If you fall into the latter category you know it can be quite unseemly, so here's this Christmas tree ornament that's also a flask from Urba…

A Dog Crate For Your Posh, Modern Pooch

Back when I adopted my dog Lucca as an 8-week-old puppy, she needed to be crate trained. Crate-training is the very best way to teach a dog to use the restroom outside and only outside, not, say, on couches covered in micro-suede or on beds after Mommy has just changed the sheets. The puppy spend…

Which Celeb Couple Commissioned This Skull Candle?

We only have a small piece of the puzzle: Lore is that these life-sized Koff candles were created exclusively for some famous rock star couple's wedding. (Feel free to venture a guess, but please, don't toss and turn all night thinking about it.) All we care about at this point is that they're finally, hot-off-the-presse…

Hair Model Citizen: Doesn’t Your Cat Deserve A Wig Today?

This sweet puss is a Hair Model Citizen because she fearlessly dares to go where no cats that we know of have gone before. In fact, last time we tried to put a wig on our friend's cat, let's just say the outcome was anything but pretty. To get the look, you'll need to…

Beauty Test Drive: All We Want For Xmas Is A Little Bling

The holiday beauty gift sets are rolling out to stores and well, let's just say some are better than others. This Thierry Mugler Alien combo, $75, is one of the former. There are plenty of Angel fans out there, but if you haven't had the pleasure of smelling the lesser known Alien it's a little…

Cheapskate: New York & Co.

When I worked at New York & Co. in the early part of this decade, the fashion was really lacking. The clothes were one step above your typical mom wear with work appropriate stuff mixed in. Plus, my store didn't carry size XS or 2, so I rarely bought anything. All that has changed, now,…

Twitter Jewelry Is The “Carrie” Necklace Of 2009

How cute! Twitter jewelry! Do we think Demi Moore has bought herself this @mrskutcher necklace to show off her Twitter pride? Whether Demi wears her Tweeting handle around her neck or not, I'll be ordering one for myself so all the folks I charm at parties know they should follow @jessicawakeman on Twitter…

Smooshy Wooshy Puppy Wuppy Baggy Waggy

We're not sure all dogs are like this, but at least two Frisky staffers' dogs love to burrow into blankets and towels and piles of clothes and, in some cases, even leaves and snow. We're not sure why this is, but it certainly is freakin' adorable when they do, we'll tell ya that much. If…

Moisturize For A Good Cause

When you do something good, you shouldn't expect to get anything in return. But, you have to admit, it's not so bad when you do. During the holiday season, Kiehl's is selling a special edition version of their beloved by the masses Creme de Corps body moisturizer, with 100 percent of the net…

Hot Dam(ned!): Zombie Pin-Up Girls

Everyone loves pin-up girls. Those saucy, knowing stares, the pretty curls and red lipstick, all the oozing sores and blood. Described as Gil Elvgren meets "Night of the Living Dead," you can't go wrong gifting this 2010 calendar to horror film junkie friends. Also, at $14.99, it costs just slightly more than one movie ticket.

Cheapskate: Target

Target was one of the first mega-retail chains to commit to selling affordable clothing and accessories alongside essentials like detergent, cosmetics, and food. Basically, it's a one-stop shopping destination for recessionistas who aren't willing to sacrifice style when on a budget. I've never seen any fashion item priced above $100, so you don't…

Sneak Peek: Kate Moss’s “Comfort Food” At Topshop

Topshop just sent us their new Kate Moss holiday collection preview pics, and while we love all the festive party frocks and glammed-up knits, everyone seems to be gravitating toward the pajamas and robes section of the lineup. I don't know about you guys, but I can remember many a holiday season where I…

Bo: The Men’s Vibrator He Can Carry In His Pocket

Is that a Bo in your pocket or are you just excited to see me? Both. Sort of. Meet Bo, a male vibrator made by Lelo, a company known for its sleek array of designer sex toys. (You might know one of their bestsellers, a USB rechargeable vibrator which looks like a tube…

$10,000 Buys You A Lifetime Of Not Smelling Like The Joneses

Sure, in a perfect world, our favorite fragrance would be all our own. It would be an exclusive scent that smells like no other, and when we left a room, people would say, "Oh, it still smells like her," and sigh wistfully. (For that matter, no one would have the same H&M dresses either, hate…

New Diesel Jeans Will Get The Boys To Notice You!

INTERIOR, A NIGHT CLUB: An obviously dorky, wallflower-like girl, Stacey, stands alone awkwardly at the bar. Her ultra-hot friend, Tracy, walks up and joins her, sweaty from the dance floor. The music is blaring. Stacey: Tracy, you get so many guys. I just don't know how you do it! I can't even get a…

Beauty Test Drive: Ellen Sirot Hand Perfection Nail And Cuticle Treatment

I have the kind of cuticles that look dry and ragged a day or two after a manicure, and my cracked knuckles sometimes look as if I walk like a gorilla. Despite my best efforts to re-apply lotion after washing my hands and sleeping with my hands slathered in Vaseline and covered with moisturizing gloves,…
