As someone who confines their wardrobe to the darker side of the spectrum (happily, might I add), I naturally shy away from solid brights or pastels. They clash and look kind of silly against my palette of black, grey, dark green, beige, and white, so I find that my monochromes are best brightened with a heady dose of — you guessed it — florals. Patterns add an unexpected touch to any desaturated ensemble, and florals in deeper shades strike the perfect balance between spring’s paler, more saccharine versions and this season’s all goth, all the time aesthetic. The best part? There’s no reason you should have to wait until April (at least!) to show them off.
What did you think of all the cutout dresses at the Golden Globes this year? Some dresses definitely worked better than others, but in general I loved seeing so many unique silhouettes and unexpected flashes of skin on the red carpet. Whatever your body type and levels of modesty, there are actually a ton of ways to get the cutout look. Want to show off your shoulders? Draw attention to your collarbone? Highlight your back? I found 10 sexy cutout pieces in a variety of styles and colors–click on the gallery to find the perfect one for you!
Asia is kind of notorious for its long-standing monopoly on bizarre “trends,” from bagel heads and tentacle porn to ANIMATRONIC CAT EAR HEADBANDS THAT MOVE WITH YOUR EMOTIONS. Sorry, I am a little stoked on that one (see also: cat cafes). So, as mind-bendingly strange as many of them are (so, so, so strange), I can’t say I’m ever shocked to hear that something new and batshit crazy is going on in Asia. And yet! Young people (I’m 80 years old) in Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia are getting into fashion braces. Like, for your teeth. Listen, it physically pains me to admit this, but I, too, wanted braces as a child. What the fuck, former self? I thought they were cool! Metal in your mouth! What isn’t cool about that?

You read Fifty Shades of Grey on the subway, you sexted your ass off, waxed your bush until it was nonexistent, avoided period sex and hell, you even spent a full half hour looking for the NSFW versions of the Kate Middleton topless photos just because you were bored. It’s OK. No shame. You were en trend for 2012. But that’s all over now. Onward! The Frisky offers their humble predictions for what will be IN and OUT for sex in 2013.
Jessica Alba braved the frantic crowds at Target to do some last minute holiday shopping, and she looked fabulous (as usual!) in a studded leather jacket, star print jeans, a lime green bag, and a royal blue manicure that I want to copy, like, now. The best part about this outfit? Those sharp spikes on her shoulders aren’t just a trendy fashion statement–they’re an effective defense against the crazy shoppers who are prepared to knock you over for the last Cinderella Barbie. If you’re headed to the mall this weekend, take a cue from Jess and wear studs. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
I was going to write about how I really like both of the Kardashian sisters’ outfits, and how pairing colored denim with a black top is a great way to wear it in fall and winter, but then I noticed the caption attached to this photo: “After shopping earlier in the day the sisters went to the famous bridge where one homeless man tried to eat the face off of another homeless man before being killed by police.” And now, well, I have no words.

I recently bought myself a Rosette Nebula necklace from an Etsy artist, because my middle name is rose and I love space photography.

I usually go for crazy nail polish colors like neon pink and rainbow glitter, but the other day I randomly bought a bottle of rose gold polish, and the surprisingly subtle shade is shaping up to be my new favorite. The pink undertones make it flattering on any skin tone and help it stand out from other gold polishes that are everywhere this season. Perfect. [$7.50, Amazon]
Ever since I saw my lifestyle role models Amelia McDonell-Parry and Celine Dion [I am honored to be in such esteemed company. -- Editor] rocking some fabulous pointy toe pumps, I’ve been dying for a pair of my own.
