Style 911: Where Can I Find Shorts For Thick Thighs?

I haven’t worn non-athletic shorts since my age was in the single digits due to my German heritage and stocky lower body.  I am not overweight by any means; I just have thighs that love to accumulate muscle and that cupcake I ate yesterday! It would expand my summer wardrobe so much if I had…

Who Wears Short Shorts? Bill Clinton!

I’m kind of obsessed with this embarrassing photo of Bill Clinton and Al Gore from the ’90s. I happen to think the former president was, is, and always will be a stone cold fox.  I refuse to be ashamed! Nothing is sexier than a man with brains, clout, and a history of infidelity. Am I
