Well, the postal service stopped delivering mail on Sundays. I guess, since postmen are like elves with boundless work ethic, the postal service had to find a way to fill that time. So, your postman is now a clothing designer. Really. More
So, I kind of like Kanye West for a change… More
Spanx aren’t the only things that won’t add to the convenience of your sex life. Let’s a take a look at a few very inconvenient truths about some of these garments right now, as well as their potential consequences. This may be a bit NSFW, by the way. More
Wait, is that… right? Also, how is Anna Wintour the Queen of the Empire of Fashion?
I mean, by editing Vogue, but I would think that does not mean that you can whimsically issue bans on Ann Romney like some 80 year old billionaire matriarch whispering to the maitre d at Michael’s that Lindsay Lohan should not be allowed in. I say this like this is something I have witnessed. For the record, I never saw Brooke Astor place a Michael’s ban on Lindsay Lohan. It seems unlikely Lindsay Lohan goes to Michael’s. Pretty sure that hit was in regard to Lavo. More
Yesterday, we tried making a gallery of movies where new outfits give characters entirely new personalities and the general consensus was “not enough.” By general consensus, I mean like three people in the office who really love the Breakfast Club. More
Today is Pippa Middleton’s birthday. Which reminds us that once, long ago, she had birthdays where everyone did not immediately think of her bum. Let’s look at how her style and image has evolved over the years More
It’s not all just ambiguous fashion rules about white clothing. There’s a lot more to labor day. Here are five facts I’m going to attempt to make “sexy.”
Anke Domaske, a biologist-cum-fashion designer, figured out a way to turn milk into thread, and that thread into dresses (that last part has actually been done before). More
Much has been made of a woman’s responsibility to protect herself from sexual harassment and/or assault by not dressing too provocatively. In fact, when I posted an amusing infographic on the actual ways to prevent rape a while back, more than one commenter got all snippy, saying that, like it or not, a woman “in reasonably decent shape and with reasonably good looks” is obviously much more likely to be targeted while looking “slutty and sexually seductive” than while wearing “ratty jeans, greasy hair,” etc., and that anyone who thinks any different “is just deluding themselves (to a ridiculous and laughable degree).” Guess what, commenter? That is bullshit. More
You know that episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation where it turns out that Tasha Yar, who died in the first season, had a half-Romulan daughter named Sela due to some fancy footwork involving time travel? You don’t?? Watch it. Right now. I’ll wait, it’s cool.
Ok. Now: didn’t Denise Crosby look amazing in that Romulan military jacket?!?! Don’t you want to copy her style? The answer is yes, she did. And yes, you do. And I will help you with a few suggestions that might work here on Earth. More
Sometimes you know what books make appropriate presents for people based on their outfit. And sometimes you know which books never will. Like: More
1) Ms. Frizzle from The Magic School Bus was a style icon of our childhood
2) this is performance art, right? Not just a homeless person who likes outfits with star prints? I’ll feel terrible if I’m just posting a picture of an eccentrically garbed homeless person in an exploitative manner
3) Was this a thing on the Magic School Bus? Was there ever an episode where we find out Ms. Frizzle is homeless? Or is it subtly implied? Is it going to be like watching David the Gnome as an adult and realizing that the gnomes are all socialists? I don’t know!
4) Oh, I get it. Teachers are underpaid.
