5 Color Rules You Should Totally Break

Emma Stone showed up at the “Friends With Benefits” premiere rocking a color combination that is usually avoided: red and pink. Fire engine red and bright fuchsia, to be exact. And how striking does she look? Girlfriend ispulling it off. As Ms. Stone illustrates, flouting the “rules” of color can yield awesome results, and I wish people would do it more often. Click through for four more color rules you should totally break, and join the ranks of stylish scofflaws…

Well, for those days when the hair goddesses do not smile upon you kindly, we believe every lady can take her hair look from fright to sight to be seen with minimal effort.

You’re Such A Cheese Puff: The Frisky Guide To Really Dressing For Your Body Type

The Frisky Guide To Dressing For Your Body Type
Over the weekend, whilst laying out at the beach, Amelia and I were looking at a fashion magazine with a spread on dressing for your body type — you know, like chicks do during the summer. But, striving to be “different,” the mag had chosen the dumbest new names for the featured figures. You could be a dewdrop! Or a flute! What did that even mean??? We thought it would be more appropriate to name our body types based on some of our favorite snack foods instead. So without further ado, “The Frisky Guide To Dressing For Your Body Type,” be it cheese puff, sundae, soda bottle, or lollipop. Feel like your body type isn’t represented? No worries — we’re planning a part two, so please tell us any body types we’re missing in the comments! (Feel free to call ‘em what you want…)

Tattoos 101: Everything You Need To Know If You Want To Get Inked

Two years ago, I got my fifth tattoo, a large red and black crown on the back of my neck. I went home to visit my parents and was stunned by the lack of commentary. Eventually, I just had to ask.

“Mom, did you see my new tattoo?”

“Yes. It’s … big.” Clearly, she’d made an uneasy peace with the idea that her daughter loves ink. Keep reading »

Do Not Want: A Very Expensive Thank You

Cast of Vices’ ‘Corner Store’ Leather Shopper takes the plastic “thank you” bag way uptown. This bag is, if you will, the high class hooker version of a plastic bag. And as you might imagine, Cast of Vices bags are, of course, more expensive then your typical corner store bag–they run between $178-$218 each. I’ll take a cloth tote, instead, thanks. [$178-$218, Cast of Vices] Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Lucy In Disguise Haight & Ashbury Dress

Lily Allen and her sister Sarah Owen have collaborated on Lucy in Disguise, a modern take on retro style clothing. As owners of a vintage store of the same name, the sisters definitely know about fashions from decades past. But their Haight & Ashbury Dress confuses us because we don’t know anyone who wants to spend $240 to dress like an ethereal wench. We suspect that folks who enjoy Renaissance faires shell out that much money and more for their costumes, but at least those are appropriate for the period. The Haight & Ashbury Dress isn’t even appropriate for the rest of the collection, which also features leopard-print and bandana fabrics. Keep reading »

Tina Fey’s Feelings On Fashion

“A wise friend once told me, ‘Don’t wear what fashion designers tell you to wear. Wear what they wear.’ His point being that most designers, no matter what they throw onto the runway, favor simple, flattering pieces for themselves. Anyone who has never met me can tell you that fashion has always been very very very very very very very important to me. For example, I once told my cousin that my dream would be ‘if the whole store Express was my closet!’ How prescient, because now, of course, I wear nothing but Express. It can’t be said enough. Don’t concern yourself with fashion; stick to simple pieces that flatter your body type … By 19, I had found my look. Oversize T-shirts, bike shorts, and wrestling shoes. To prevent the silhouette from being too baggy, I would cinch it at the waist with my fanny pack. I was pretty sure I would wear this look forever. The shirts allowed me express myself with cool sayings like ‘There’s No Crying in Baseball’ and ‘Universität Heidelberg,’ the bike shorts showed off my muscular legs, and the fanny pack held all my trolley tokens. I was nailing it on a daily basis. Find something like this for yourself as soon as possible.”

Beware Your Tiny Hat


File this under bizarre fashion emergencies. This guy superglued his tiny hat to his head and couldn’t get it off. He thought he might have to wear the tiny top hat around forever until Dr. Shabir saved the day by performing an emergency hat amputation, a hamputation. Let this be a warning to Helena Bonham Carter — superglue and tiny hats are a dangerous combination. [The Hairpin] Keep reading »
