Fashion’s Night Out is this Thursday, and the inbox here at Gloss HQ is overflowing with press releases about store openings, celebrity appearances, and drink specials. As a lover of all things fashion, this is supposed to be all eight days of Hanukkah wrapped up in one. But every time I think about what I want to spend Thursday night doing, it involves hiding in my room. More

Polka dots are my all-time favorite print, but if you go too far with the look can wind up looking like a six-year-old on school picture day. Try these tips for rocking dots that will keep you looking fun and sexy, not cartoonish. More
At TheGloss we see fire, rain, and a constant revolving door of interns – but we never thought we’d see the day where our fantastic Editor in Chief Lilit Marcus was moving on. More
Just over a year ago, I walked into my boss’ office at the website where I was working and told him that I was putting in my notice. “Where are you going?” he asked.
“To a new website,” I said.
“What’s it called?”
“I…don’t actually know.” More
I’ve never been much of a believer in Valentine’s Day – single or coupled. Most guys interpret “I don’t really celebrate Valentine’s Day” as “I want you to buy me things and am just pretending to be modest,” but I … More
There’s been a lot of talk of cleansing and other detox programs on The Gloss lately, and it’s making me feel like I’m supposed to want to be healthier or live off of liquids or something. (Now, if those liquids were all bourbon, I’d listen. But instead they all have carrot juice in them, and that shit is disgusting.) Plus, I have a lot of health-conscious friends who are always blathering about the importance of eating only food that doesn’t have a shadow and keep encouraging me to go to restaurants with them. As a result, I have come up with some foolproof ways to weasel out of pressures to be healthy and do anything other than mainline processed cheese. More
The only thing we at TheGloss love more than buying stuff is pointing out stuff that’s too ridiculous to buy. While we’d be hard-pressed to say no to a Chanel gown, a Chanel football is a little more of a … More
Entire fortunes have been made by profiting off of people getting married – Vera Wang, anyone? But while there are basic things that almost any bride needs – a dress, a place to have a reception – bridal magazines and websites keep trying to convince you that you need hand-carved centerpieces and a skywriter.

>A few days ago, I wrote about Contiki Tours’ policy of asking participants to identify their dating status as “red light” or “green light” before departing for a trip. The guided tour company evidently didn’t appreciate their policy being made public, because they took the post down from their official website. Luckily, the original page – an AP article about Contiki that the company had posted on their website – is still in Google cache here. More
Contiki, the hugely popular international group-trip program that enables young people to see the world, has a reputation for being hookup central. Rather than dance around the whole “makeout bus” reputation, Contiki’s website addresses the issue head-on. More
Dani Stahl’s column in Nylon magazine, Factory Girl, requires her to travel around the world visiting clothing and product factories. It’s always a fun read, and it’s nice to learn about the processes behind a lot of popular brands. This month, she visited the OPI nail polish factory in Los Angeles, and I never realized how little I knew about one of beauty’s best brands. More
We love Vogue. But even things we love can sometimes be ridiculous. In this new feature, we’ll catalogue the most eye-rolling moments from America’s fashion bible. More
