Would You Wear: Mon Mode’s Handy Purse Hook

Would You Wear: Mon Mode's Handy Purse Hook

I was first introduced to the “purse hook” a few years ago on New Years at a bar in north Brooklyn. My friend Nadja sat down, felt around beneath the bar for a hook and then we exchanged what I thought was that universal lady dismay expression of, “There are no hooks at this bar and our bags shall have to be placed on the floor if there is not an empty seat beside us.”* But then!

Poll: Ever Worn A Dress Made Out Of Something Weird?

Poll: Ever Worn A Dress Made Out Of Something Weird?

I haven’t. I mean, I’ve heard about it. I’ve heard about bridal parties where people make wedding dresses out of toilet paper or something, but I have not been to those bridal parties. So whenever I read stories like this one about teens wearing prom dresses made out of Starburst wrappers I always wonder how many people have gotten to taste the delightful mind-rainbow that is “wearing super weird materials as clothing.” Anyone here?

Would You Wear: The Deeply Disgusting Cheese Shoe

That said, convention being what it is means I have to title this post “Would You Wear: A Dress Made of Toilet Seat Covers” even though the answer should be a resounding “NO!” …Not because it’s made of toilet seat covers, however, but because it is fucking ugly.

Would You Wear Yellow Eyeshadow?

Would You Wear Yellow Eyeshadow?

Cosmopolitan Magazine (print) claims they have “yellow fever”. Since yellow fever is a viral infection transmitted by mosquitoes, I thought “gee, that’s really awful”. I was worried the entire Cosmo staff was going to lapse into delirium and then, a coma, but then I realized they just like Rachel McAdams’ yellow eyeshadow. And then I wished it had just been regular old yellow fever, because I think it looks as though Rachel McAdams has smeared pollen all over her upper eyelid. That said, normally I make fun of trends like this and end up trying them about three weeks later and loving them. How do you feel? Love it? Hate it? More »
