Uh, No: Solafeet Foot Tanner

Here’s a quick way to get cancer—or at least foot cancer (if that even existed until now)—the Solafeet Foot Tanner, another useless and overpriced object brought to you by the endlessly entertaining SkyMall catalogue. Marketed to golfers who want to “rid themselves of ugly sock tan lines,” all you have to do is stick your feet into the machine for 15 minutes a day (which probably takes off a day of your life with each session). But apparently there are people in the world who suffer from tan line embarrassment:

“If you always feel like people are gawking at your white feet and the unsightly tan lines around your ankles when you wear sandals or pumps, then you need the Solafeet foot tanner … Then you can go from the golf course to the clubhouse in confidence.”

So, basically, you can live it up (for only $229.99) before the doctors amputate both your feet. Awesome. [SkyMall.com] Keep reading »

Style Buzz: Crocs Take Over the World And Balloon Boy Is “Project Runway” Fan

  • Someone bailed Crocs out with a $30 million loan and they’ve gone bats**t with plans to open a Crocs-only retail store in Colorado. And they were so close to going out of business just a few weeks ago … Damn. [Denver Business Journal]
  • Was the Balloon Boy inspired by one of Christopher Straub’s “Project Runway” runway creations? Um… [Stylelist]

Quick Pic: Ugly-Cute Or Just Ugly-Ugly?

Fashion designer Rick Owens has a new bag out for fall! But, uh, it looks like this …. You likey? It’s called the Fur Toad bag. (FYI: It sold out, here, in a day. Oh, and it’s $925.) Discuss! Keep reading »

Halloween Costume FAIL: Woman Arrested For Stealing Sexy Cop Outfit

Sure, we all know thousands, maybe millions of women want to don slutty Halloween costumes come Oct. 31, but what you might not have considered is that all that pleather and latex and crappy lace ain’t cheap, no matter how crappy it looks. One South Carolina woman was so driven to the brink of insanity by the prospect of plunking down 50-plus bones for a sexy cop outfit that she simply stole it from an outlet store at her local mall. (Ah, the delicious irony.) Real cops promptly busted her, saying, “This woman is arrested for having bad taste!” OK, no, they didn’t really say that, pardon my embellishment. Guess she’ll have to settle for being a sexy jailbird this year. No problem, they do make those. I’ve seen ‘em. [The Sun] Keep reading »

Liam Gallagher Has New Clothing Line, Doesn’t Care If You Like It


Liam Gallagher must’ve observed Lindsay Lohan‘s design trials and tribulations, and decided, “Hey, if she can do it, I can too.” He has a new clothing line in the works called Pretty Green and even filmed this highly informative promotional video! It’s packed full of fantastically narcissistic insightful quotes and Zoolander-esque moments involving brooding and smoking cigarettes against a gray backdrop. My favorite highlights: “You get a bit more classier as you get older,” “I’ve got some time now, I’m changing gears, but I’m still speeding,” and the philosophical, “Wearing top clothes and singing f**king in tune is pretty important isn’t it? I think it’s pretty much the same thing isn’t it? I can do both.”

What a renaissance man indeed! I also appreciate that he expressly reiterates the fact that if no one likes the clothes, at least he’ll get a new wardrobe out of it. My friend who sent this to me wrote, “What a tosser!” I say he’s just being a totally honest bloke, and, clearly, he takes himself his fashion expedition very seriously. Tell it like it is, Liam!

Rainbow Brite, We’ll Always Remember You Before You Got Slutty

Rainbow Brite was the original fag hag, what with her sassy attitude, outrageous clothes and her BF, Twink. Those of us who were little kids in the ’80s spent Saturday mornings entranced by her intergalactic adventures, and she was a good role model for young girls because she could do anything the boys could (and usually told all them what to do). One thing our beloved heroine was not: sexy. And that’s OK, because she is a children’s character. Fast-forward to spring 2010, when Hallmark will unveil the modern Rainbow Brite and Co. The original childish bodies have been replaced by elongated, leggy versions of their former selves. Twink’s new name is Twinkle (gee, wonder why?). Wait a sec, didn’t this happen to Strawberry Shortcake and Dora, too? When will the madness end? [Jezebel]

The outrageous before and after, plus a bonus vintage video, after the jump! Keep reading »

Style Face-Off: Divas Take Monday Night Football

Where I come from, there is a pretty standard uniform for football games, and it does not include white silk jumpsuits, or tight white pants paired with sparkly custom-fit jerseys. This is mostly a precautionary measure, as it’s easy to get sloshed with beer and messy foods like burgers and hot dogs. Apparently, this does not apply to “divas” like Jennifer Lopez and Gloria Estefan, who showed up to Monday Night Football in Miami last night looking like they had never heard of the sport. (At least Estefan looks semi-appropriate for the event.) Huh. [Miami, 10/13/09] Keep reading »

Super Handy Beauty Product: Date Rape Lip Gloss!

File 2LoveMyLips gloss in the “So Useful We Didn’t Even Know We Needed It” file. Sold in British vending machines, the gloss will turn your lips blue if your drink is tainted by a date-rape drug. Judging by the look of things, Sean Lennon‘s model girlfriend Kemp here is about to be date-raped any second, as are the gals on the Doo.Ri spring 2010 runway. Models, they’re date-raped, just like us! (OK, gah, that was in really poor taste, I know. TGIF!) [BuzzFeed] and [Gawker] Keep reading »

Clothespins + Skin = Art (Really?)

So there’s art, like the real deal stuff that’s on museum walls and on view at auction houses and found hanging in some super-cutting edge gallery…and then there’s art that just effs with your head—and, as far as I’m concerned gets the quote-unquote treatment. Usually, this “art” is all about the shock value—not that I’m against shock value, hey, it gets people talking, right? Well, ready yourself for some water cooler conversation. Artist Thijs Verbeek has created a unique way of spelling out the alphabet—with clothespins and skin. It’s titled “Alphabet in Huid.” Get a load of the rest of the alphabet, after the jump…

Get A Swine Flu-Repellent Suit If You Have Money To Waste

A Japanese company says it has designed a suit that will fight the H1N1 virus. Haruyama Trading Co. has produced 50,000 suits that are coated with the chemical titanium dioxide, which reacts with light and destroys the virus, according to a company spokesperson. Titanium dioxide is a common ingredient in toothpaste and cosmetics. The suit costs $600 and looks like any other business suit. [Impact Lab]

Wow, who knew swine flu could be stopped with toothpaste and some lipstick? But seriously, after the H1N1 scare swept across the globe, we all learned that germs are spread primarily by hand-to-face contact. So I’m curious how this suit will stop the spread of swine flu since the hands and face are still exposed. I’m no chemist or doctor, but I think a better and cheaper investment than this $600 suit would be a simple flu vaccination. Keep reading »
