I saw the perfect tee when I was in high school, it was simple, fitted, had cap-sleeves, a nice color, and a very, very deep scoop neck–like “how would I wear a bra under that” deep…only problem–it was online and I didn’t have a card. Now, I can’t find any shirts that are like it! Most tees either don’t have plunging necklines or they aren’t fitted (damn you massive trash-bag-like tee trend!). I’m looking for something that isn’t see-through or white…designs are fine, I love an interesting tee! …I just can’t find anything. – Scoop Me Away
Isn’t it the worst when you see a magical shirt you love and then can’t find it when you’re ready to buy? The shirt becomes a mythical object that you’re constantly searching for, never satisfied. I had the same thing with a striped H&M top a few years back. I totally get it. What I’m hearing is that you want a deep scoop — something a tad scandalous that might be good for layering, or to wear with a cute camisole underneath. I think I may have found you some suitable replacements that might satiate your scoop neck craving. Click through to check ‘em out.

Growing up with many German relatives, I knew from an early age that beer was very important to people. But as an adult, I learned that beer is useful for more than just drinking. From an (oddly true) sleep aid to a natural pesticide, here are my favorite “other uses” for beer.
Wash Your Hair With Beer. Want to make your hair shinier and have more volume? Skip the hair conditioner and break out the bottle of beer! Scientifically speaking, beer is good for your hair because it has protein that strengthens your hair. Not only that, but it has a low pH and is a mild astringent to help keep your hair clean. And no, you won’t smell like a frat party. Read more…
American fabric care labels can be difficult enough to read, but internationally-manufactured clothing often provide different variations of cleaning care symbols. And when we’re trying to get through laundry day, the last thing we want to do is spend time trying to crack the code of a squiggly line with a circle (or whatever). Instead, we’ll avoid the guesswork (and possibly damaging clothes) by getting to know these symbols and their meanings. Read more…

I remember the first time I was told that black and white should only be worn with … each other. Maybe a little gray or brown, if you’re feeling crazy. I scraped my jaw off the floor, snickered, and promptly dismissed this restrictive advice as total bunk.
But it lingered in my brain. And, over time, I began to notice that color-on-color pairings looked richer, livelier, and more sophisticated than color-on-neutral pairings. When several shades are combined in carefully crafted ensembles, the colors look their best and so do their wearers. This isn’t to say that colors should NEVER be worn with neutrals. Oh hell no. There are plenty of ways to create intentional mixes that include both colors and black or white. Or both, or other neutrals. But I believe that learning to pair multiple colors is a skill worth cultivating, especially as The Frisky celebrates New Year, New You month. Here’s why… Keep reading »
“Do you have a pen?” my friend asked.
“Yeah sure, just go into my purse,” I said.
But what my friend found wasn’t a pen, but approximately 5 handfuls of receipts, a small notebook and 4 lipsticks/lip glosses. There was at pen, at some point, in this fashionable garbage pail that I call a purse. And even worse, I had actually downsized from a larger satchel to the smallest purse I could get without it being a clutch, because I had noticed that the former just attracted stuff like a junkyard magnet.
