This photo is from the National Potato Chip Institute convention of 1948, an event which apparently involved fitting a model with a surprisingly lovely potato chip bra. I’m really not sure why this concept never caught on. I mean, a bra you can snack on while watching TV? Life dream status. [Buzzfeed]

I normally love rounded colors and contrast piping, but in the case of this blouse, the effect is very, umm, well, it looks like a cock and balls. What do you think? Would you dare to wear such a phallic fashion? [$53, ASOS]
Despite an unceremonious fall from grace in 1992, ’80s artist Rob Pruitt is making a name for himself once again in the contemporary art world, thanks in part to the chrome statue of Andy Warhol he erected on a high-traffic street corner in Manhattan’s Union Square last year. One would think that, with his irreverent creative sensibilities and the offhand, possibly misconstrued brand of “racism” that got him ousted from the scene in the first place, luxury fashion collaborations would be off the radar for this former wunderkind. Not so! Far from it, in fact — Pruitt has dreamed up an 18-piece collection for none other than Jimmy Choo, and God, is it hideous. Keep reading »
Lately I’ve been looking at my closet and feeling an overwhelming sense of “I have nothing to wear!” Luckily though, I just found the magical garment that will instantly fill the gaping void in my wardrobe: a Chavril engagement T-shirt, which celebrates the upcoming Canadian royal wedding of ChAvril LaKroeger, aka Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger. As the model illustrates, it goes perfectly with a heavy smear of black eyeliner and a punk rock attitude. Yep, this is definitely my new fall uniform. [$25, The Chavril Boutique]
I don’t know the story behind this picture. I do know that I ugly-laughed for five minutes straight when I saw it, and everyone deserves to have a hearty stingray-related chortle today. [Buzzfeed]
A foolish part of me thought for a hot second that Kanye West‘s influence on the wardrobe of his “Perfect Bitch” would actually have a positive effect on Kim’s trademark “all things tight” style. I can now honestly say I liked it better before, because what in the actual fuck is this? Kanye West’s idea of a really great outfit, is what. Terrifying. Nightmares. [Photo: FameFlynet]
Yep, you’re looking at a pair of high-heeled bowling shoes. Unfortunately they’re not recommended for actual bowling, but you can definitely wear them to make a grand entrance at the bowling alley before changing into a pair of normal, sweaty bowling shoes to roll a ball down the lane. However your game pans out, you’ll get a perfect score for glamour. [Laughing Squid]
Two years ago, I got food poisoning from some babaganoush and barfed inside a downtown 5 train on the New York City subway.
This morning I had the opposite experience when a total stranger barfed on me in the Q train during my Monday morning commute.
It’s the circle of life.

When my brother texted me a picture of this sign that he found hung up on the wall of his rural high school, I knew I had found my true calling. I mean, I’ve come across many miniature horse care and feeding jobs in my day, but none with such a flexible schedule. Amelia, consider this post my two weeks’ notice. Time to give this mysterious “Carol” a call…
