Most of us at The Frisky are originally country mice — in some cases, suburban mice — who moved to a larger city just as soon as we could. But all of us visit our families often, which means a trip back to the ‘burbs of our youth. And often while visiting family, we need… READ MORE »

This spring, jackets are breaking from tradition, and new materials and patterns have been applied to many familiar cuts.  Check out the new takes on blazers, moto, varsity, and crop jackets above… … READ MORE »

When I found these elegant Kate Spade shorts, I couldn’t help but swoon. Imagine sipping champagne on a yacht in these bottoms, as your tan legs stretch out lazily… OK, so that isn’t quite my life, but a girl can dream. However, I will opt to wear the more affordable MinkPink version the next time… READ MORE »

Vending machines are the new home for anything and everything. You never know when you might find yourself on the go and suddenly in immediate need of cupcakeschampagne, pizza or even a new weave.

The Mane Vendor, a weave vending machine, was created by Marcella Ellis, owner of Marcella Ellis… READ MORE »

We’ve all done it. Bought a party dress that we just HAD to have only to realize that we have nowhere to wear it. Splurged on a pair of trousers that looked amazing in the dressing room and hideous as soon as we got them home. Done a little retail therapy, came home with a… READ MORE »

I’m currently in the process of losing some weight. While the experience has been less life-changing than I expected, I’m proud of myself for eating healthier and exercising more often. I feel good. The one downside so far? I’m at the stage of weight loss where my clothes mostly still fit, but they all look… READ MORE »

It’s been about 6 months since I vowed to overhaul my shopping habits and become a more conscious consumer.  One of my main goals was to cut back on fast fashion, AKA super cheap, trendy clothes from stores like Forever 21, Zara, H&M, and Topshop that refresh their inventory almost daily and rely heavily on… READ MORE »

New research from the University of Southern California found that, shocker, looking at images of happy couples when you’re single makes you feel crappy. Advertisers love to rely on the “lovey dovey” trope to sell things, assuming that people who aren’t in a happy relationship will see the product as the key to… READ MORE »

At my boutique job, I see a lot of guys shopping with their wives and girlfriends. Some of them are amazing shopping partners, helping their ladies pick out cute dresses and offering helpful feedback in the dressing room. Some of them are completely disengaged, plopping down on a chair immediately upon entering the store and… READ MORE »

The crop top trend can be pretty intimidating, but don’t let a little midriff scare you. Matching crop top and skirt sets appeared all over the runways of fashion week and are a major trend this spring.  I recommend keeping the shapes structured and the midriff exposure to a minimal sexy peek. Here are 11… READ MORE »

Anyone who wears a hard-to-find, frequently sold-out, or generally ignored size knows that shopping can be an extremely frustrating experience. The next time you’ve scoured the racks and your size is nowhere to be found, channel that frustration into one of these polite-but-productive clothes calling cards, and leave it with the manager. You can print… READ MORE »

Do you guys remember when J.Crew was, well, not exactly affordable, but, like, normal people could shop there? I spend a ridiculous amount of time reminiscing about the days when I could save up a few extra bucks from my freshman work study job and pop into J.Crew for a nicely made cardigan. Sigh. But… READ MORE »

Let’s pretend it isn’t ridiculously cold out. Or maybe the reason it’s not quite leggings weather is that you live in Australia, where it’s hot as Satan’s armpit right now and the thought of fabric clinging to your legs makes you want to break out in hives. Either way, it’s not the time for a… READ MORE »

Average people idolize celebrities for a plethora of reasons, some more valid than others. Outside of the realm of style, Kate Moss isn’t exactly the first star who comes to mind as far as inspirational lives are concerned, so maybe (probably) I am touched in the head for thinking she’s an overall positive role model.

It’s still cold as hell, but with spring (allegedly) just around the corner, who wants to buy yet another winter dress? Luckily, Modcloth has a ton of cute transitional dresses to help you solve this dilemma. Wear these dresses now with tights, boots, and cardigans, and into spring and summer with sandals and sunglasses. Perfect. READ MORE »

I’ve already done quite a bit of serious reflecting on the life lessons I learned this year. Now it’s time to reflect on a much shallower topic: the cool stuff I bought. After selling most of my belongings in the spring, I tried to be a bit more careful with my purchases this year, although… READ MORE »

I just started working at a boutique on the weekends, and I’m having a blast. This weekend was particularly entertaining, because we had a steady stream of men wander into the shop looking to buy gifts for their wives and girlfriends. It didn’t take long before I noticed that the vast majority of these last-minute… READ MORE »

Holiday shopping is taxing on your energy and your bank account. You create a list, check it once, and are satisfied that you’ve crossed everyone off your list. Then you check it twice and realize you may have forgotten someone.  Or even worse, you start to second guess who should be on your… READ MORE »
