Out of all the gorgeous gowns I saw on the red carpet and on stage at last night’s ACM Awards, the Kristian Aadnevik corset dress Shakira wore to perform “Medicine” with Blake Shelton was my absolute favorite. My reaction to it was a combination of “Oh my God she looks amazing,” and “Oh my God I want to be wearing… 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.

I love the idea of doing a fashion post inspired by my dad because his complete and total disdain for fashion is one of the major reasons I became interested in it. My dad’s style outlook can be summed up as “function over fashion.” He chooses his outfits based on two factors: comfort, and strategic… READ MORE »

In honor of Father’s Day, we thought it would be fun to draw some style inspiration from the most unlikely of sources: our dads. Our fathers’ lifestyles — and fashion senses — vary greatly, but one thing’s for sure: all our dads definitely have a look that’s all their own. Let’s kick things off with… READ MORE »

Here at The Frisky, we’re celebrating Father’s Day in style by taking some unexpected fashion cues from our dads. First up was Amelia’s California dad’s amazing ’70s denim-on-denim look. Jessica’s New England-based dad is up next. Here’s how Jess described her computer programmer papa’s style:
“My dad wears shirts or pants with holes in… READ MORE »

My dad had a number of signature looks over the course of my childhood, aspects of which I did not and still do not think are cute, like the yellow tinted Lennon-glasses and the pair of Birkenstocks permanently on his feet (with socks in winter). (I did, however, always dig his vintage T-shirt collection.) But… READ MORE »

Yesterday I spent a few hours parked on my couch drinking wine and binge-watching “Parks & Rec.” It was glorious. I couldn’t help but notice, over the course of five or six episodes, that Leslie Knope displays a particular fondness for anchor prints, wearing both this Equipment blouse (which is sold out, sadly) and this Madewell anchor sweaterREAD MORE »

This past weekend Nick and I went to The Grand Ole Opry and it. was. awesome. The auditorium itself was beautiful, and I was blown away by performances by Rhonda Vincent (seriously, watch her bluegrass version of “Jolene” and try not to fall in love with her!), The Striking Matches, and a bunch of classic… READ MORE »

I started watching HBO’s “Enlightened” for the same reason I’ve started watching pretty much all of my favorite shows: Amelia was like, “Dude, you HAVE to watch this show.” And as usual, she was totally right, because within three episodes this show had completely stolen my heart. I love it so much. It’s a breath… READ MORE »

The new season of “Kourtney & Kim Take Miami” premieres this weekend, which means I’ll be sitting inside my cold NYC apartment suffering from serious location envy. But even if I — and you — can’t fit in a jaunt to the southern Florida hot spot, doesn’t mean we can’t take some style cues from… READ MORE »

I always get so inspired by red carpet fashion, until I realize that my day to day life affords me very few opportunities to wear sequin fishtail gowns, and then I get sort of depressed. But luckily for us non-famous folks, there were a few trends from last night’s Golden Globes ceremony that can easily… READ MORE »

Do you guys watch “Happy Endings”? My boyfriend forced me to watch an episode a while back and now I’m officially hooked. Every character on the show is impeccably styled, but the group’s perfectionist control freak Jane Kerkovich-Williams always looks so freakin’ fabulous. Her aesthetic is very professional and preppy, with attention to accessories and… READ MORE »

This weekend, the Barack Obama Facebook page posted this picture of the first couple attending a Veteran’s Day ceremony. My friend Molly immediately sent me the link along with the message, “What is Michelle wearing?! I want it!” I did some sleuthing (and by “sleuthing” I mean I went to the awesome website “Mrs. O,”READ MORE »

One night during our weekend in Nashville, my boyfriend Nick and I staggered back to our hotel in the rain after eating a huge meal. We immediately collapsed on the bed, and Nick reached for the remote. Nick has a habit of watching the most random TV shows whenever we’re staying in a hotel, and… READ MORE »

The 1993 Disney Halloween comedy “Hocus Pocus” is straight-up one of my favorite movies of all time. I assume everyone has seen it already, but if not, I wouldn’t want to ruin it for you — you just have to watch it, with or without the under-16 audience for which it’s intended. Halloween may be… READ MORE »

First there was Marilyn, and then there was Jayne. Busty, (bottle) blonde, and ribald, Mansfield became known as the “Working Man’s Monroe” for both her physical likeness to Norma Jeane and her own brand of salacious, exaggeratedly sexual appeal. “Hollywood’s smartest dumb blonde” had a genius IQ and was fluent in five languages, but she… READ MORE »

Rest assured, you’ve got a couple of weeks to prepare your costume before the Halloween party invitations start rolling in, but why don’t we start off with something that’s especially easy to, um, swallow should you find yourself in a spectacular rush come October 30? Mid-scandal Kristen Stewart is only the easiest, most timely costume… READ MORE »

I spent the weekend in Nashville, listening to bluegrass jam bands, googling “Where do Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman hang out?” and eating way more BBQ than any human being should consume in such a short time period. It was glorious. I loved the city, and was totally inspired by the fashion, which is such… READ MORE »

On Friday I went to a Fun. concert. Like, the band Fun. And it was really fun. And all this fun talk is getting very confusing. Anyway, to the point: lead singer Nate Ruess put on a great show, and his look was on point: rolled skinny jeans, white oxfords, and a classic navy blazer. READ MORE »

On this day 35 years ago, the world lost the king of rock and roll. Elvis Presley’s tragic death at 42 shocked the nation and, as then-president Jimmy Carter made clear, irreparably changed the face of American pop culture. Elvis’s most celebrated tracks, not to mention his heartbreaking slow-motion fall from grace, may be seared… READ MORE »
