Strike a pose
From Wikipedia: Vogue is a slightly upmarket brand of cigarette coming in several varieties, including regular, menthol and lights. Vogue cigarettes are marketed in both king size and super slim, which is about 100mm long and thinner than a standard size cigarette. When I read the words “slightly upmarket” and “menthol” and “superslims” I really miss...
No 'Hot For Teacher' Jokes Here
I went to see Bad Teacher on Friday morning which is a strange, yet lovely time slot to watch a raunchy comedy. Near empty theatre, strange moments of raucous laughter, popcorn before noon. Excellent. And just in case we needed more reasons to want women to headline comedies (I know, I know, get off your soapbox you cray cray feminazi!) but Cameron Diaz was like early 80’s Bill Murray,...
Banana Republic has partnered with costume designer extraordinaire, Janie Bryant (who also created costumes for Deadwood, Swearengen shout out!) to create a line of Mad Men inspired clothes and oh man, this is some real good action up in here. It’s all I want in clothes. Hour-glass emphasis everywhere, tiny waists and not a hint of shapelessness or drape of trapeze swinging, boob muddling...

All the women in the world who have beautiful, long nails (not claw-like, porn-star nails, but a decent length, you know what I mean) are fake right?

I haven’t read the books because I’m not a masochist who enjoys long, fantasy-laden literary commitments, but are all the male characters in Game of Thrones described as having the most disgusting pseudo-beards? Because, on the HBO show, they all have that type of facial hair. Well most of them do. And I understand if they have full on, like, burly muskrat faces. They’re...
Soothing Friday fashion
To counter those pants of doom I present a much more reasonable use of whimsy: the penguin dress from Charlotte Taylor’s Autumn/Winter 2011 collection. Now, this is what I’m talking about. This is how you make silk into something fun and flattering and not pants. You warm my heart, penguin dress. Let’s get together.
Friday morning fashion rage
Good morning. This is reason #1045 why I hate pants. I mean, these are suitable for working out on the old treadmill, but not for leaving the house. They are made out of silk, so if you’re a Real Housewife, or Rue McLanahan (RIP) bust these out for lounging and seducing. Otherwise, I would suggest you spend your extra $560 (oh, yeah, no big deal, whatevs and stuff) on something else. Me,...
