The Best (Non-Traditional) Valentine’s Day Ever

I used to view Valentine’s Day as annual torture from pink fluffy teddy bears, questionable lingerie advertisements, and the Hallmark overlords. So much worse than the iron maiden. Every year, V-Day signaled the boys I dated to forget everything they knew about me and my otherwise sane girlfriends to either retreat into nauseous couple cute-love…

Architecture For Your Ears

When the worlds of fashion and architecture meet, brilliant designs are formed. Bring back the era of Art Deco with these silver earrings, which are simple yet structured to fit in with this winter’s trend of bold shoulders and exaggerations.

How To Ensure The World’s Worst Valentine’s Day

I know, I know … the point is to have a magical, fantastical, romantical Valentine’s Day … the kind of evening that makes you tear up and blush in the re-telling, while your less-fortunate girlfriends snarl and gnash their teeth in envy.

Every Guy’s Ideal Valentine’s Day Date Itinerary

Traditionally, Valentine’s Day is treated as a woman’s holiday. This sexist interpretation is due to the whole love-is-for-the-ladies thing that has been a part of American culture for the last hundred years or so. The classic image of the holiday is a man showing up on a woman’s doorstep with flowers and candy, and nearly…

How (Not?) To Do Your Makeup For Valentine’s Day

Watch out Michelle Phan, there’s a new makeup tutorial videographer in town. Well, she’s not exactly in the neighborhood, per se. We have not a clue what this Thai woman is saying, but she sure is a Chatty Cathy, and she likes her eye makeup as bright as a rainbow. We’d say it might…

While our guys on IM had mixed opinions about red lingerie, a British study found that most men kind of hate it. Red came last in a survey of sexiest lingerie colors, below pink and flesh-colored bedroom wear. Sadly, the study also found that 60 percent of women have bought red lingerie to impress a…

Starlet Gets Literal On V-Day Red Carpet

Hey guys, as much as we try, we can’t be everywhere all at once, which helps explain how we missed a spot in our “Valentine’s Day” premiere gallery. Who is Anna Kulinova? We have not a clue. But when it comes to fashion sense, maybe she is the new Bjork. [Dlisted]…
