This past weekend, I was craving a smoothie in a really profound way. Sometimes I get very specific food urges that must be heeded immediately; for example, a couple weeks ago I said to my boyfriend, “I think I’m really depressed because I haven’t been eating enough beets!” so obviously we had roasted beets for dinner and I instantly felt much better emotionally.

So anyway, I really wanted a smoothie. And I didn’t even want to make my own smoothie using the fruits and veggies in my fridge — I specifically wanted to pay someone else to make me a giant smoothie. On Sunday, I couldn’t take it anymore, so I stopped into a local Smoothie King (Why not? I thought. This place is the king of smoothies!) and started perusing the large, confusing menu. A young woman appeared at the counter, sighed, and said, “Ready to order?” in a tone that indicated I was taking way too long. There was no one in line behind me and the menu took up an entire wall and included a number of made-up words, so I smiled and told her I needed a bit more time, thanks.

This is when she rolled her eyes at me, left the counter, and went to talk to a guy in the lobby.  Keep reading »

I, like many people do, figure that while online shopping, companies track the things I look at, how long I look at them, and whether or not I buy them. This is, of course, then reflected in the advertisements that I will later see on other websites. Although slightly unnerving, tech-savvy consumers have come to expect this and generally aren’t perturbed by it. However, when similar tactics go on in brick-and-mortar stores, some people are not nearly as comfortable. Keep reading »

Must Haves: 10 Delightful Drawstring-Waist Dresses

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the drawstring-waist dress is the most universally flattering of all the dresses in all the land. There’s no body type that doesn’t stand to benefit from a cinch, and most importantly, it skims over the issue of what I like to call “barbecue belly” in the summertime without the am I pregnant? effect of an empire waist. The style is also well-suited to the vertically challenged like myself — a drawstring means that you can pull a couple of inches of fabric out from the waist to make a dress, you know, shorter. Check out these 10 summery drawstring-waist dresses, from mini to maxi and everything in between…

Style Stealer: Doutzen Kroes’ Simple, Summery Look

What it is about models? They’re always so friggin’ well-dressed, regardless of where they are or what they’re doing. Maybe this is a delusion, and the clothes aren’t actually that great, they just look really good on them because they’re models? That’s probably it. With that said, don’t be discouraged! This look is totally killer on Doutzen Kroes, but because it’s so simple, it’ll look awesome on you, too. And, like, everyone. Leave it as is for a casual day look or add a statement necklace to dress it up for night — easy! Get Doutzen’s entire look for under $300, after the jump… Keep reading »

One Pair Of Boyfriend Jeans, Worn Three Ways

One Pair Of Boyfriend Jeans, Worn Three Ways

Those of us who rely on denim for much of our bottom-half needs are often left feeling deserted come summer. Not the kind of summer where there’s a breeze in the air and, more importantly, around our legs — I mean the ninety degrees, one million percent humidity kind of summer, where the only breeze is coming from the arriving or departing subway (and, ugh, it feels so good). Jean shorts and skirts only suffice for so long before a girl wants something to cover her damn knees already. So, for the uninitiated, allow me tell you: boyfriend jeans make the perfect summer foil for those who wish they could sport their skinnies year-round. They’re looser, airier, and don’t need to be peeled painfully from the skin at the end of the day like one big, sweaty denim band-aid. And yes, because they’re jeans, they’re ridiculously versatile — depending on how you style them, you can go from day to evening to late-night (because 24 hours in the summer is like no other 24 hours we’ve ever experienced). Check out these three looks I’ve created around one pair of affordable boyfriend jeans… Keep reading »

cheating wives shopping

So, apparently cheating doesn’t take up as much free time as we thought it would. While married women were busy scouting out the profile of this weekend’s lover on AshleyMadison.com, 52,390 of them took a quick pause for survey about what they like to wear. The straying missus doesn’t walked around with a scarlet letter pinned to her chest, after all. And what did it reveal? Not a whole lot.  The whole staff of The Frisky could be cheating wives according to this “data.” The top five stores a cheating wife apparently shops in are Banana Republic, J.Crew, Macy’s, Ann Taylor and H&M; she prefers Marc Jacobs purses, Ray-Ban sunglasses, and tankinis at the beach; and her summer must-haves are a maxi dress, colored skinny jeans, and a pencil skirt. How … interesting? According to AshleyMadison.com’s CEO:

“Becoming more concerned with one’s appearance is often a dead giveaway for an affair. If your spouse suddenly seems more consumed with style and putting outfits together after spending years in sweat pants, that is a tell tale sign she could be two timing.”

I’m guessing these answers are completely the same as faithful wives. But maybe that’s exactly what these cheating wives want you to think. Sneaky! [AshleyMadison.com]
