If Slate doesn’t think skinterns are cool, they shouldn’t have given them such a great name. More
Every few months there’s some fashion editorial/event/publicity stunt in which someone has made a dress out of something not traditionally used to make dresses. Recent examples include cheese, gummi bears, toilet paper, roadkill, beetle wings, 3000 cow and yak nipples… In the time between those stories, we hear of industrious teenagers making prom dresses from similarly unlikely materials: cardboard, homework, etc… More

I’m going to work a Snuggie in here. Do you know why? Because I keep it real. Meanwhile, I’m probably wearing the same Herve Leger dress I always wear. More
You would not wear the outfit Courtney Stodden wore to your 85 year old grandmother’s birthday party, let alone the King of Thailand’s birthday party. More
Thanksgiving is about two things: trying not to argue with your family and eating your face off. Sometimes those overlap!
Oh, Thanksgiving is also about pretty autumn colors like cranberry, pumpkin, wines and plums. Here, we have assembled a gallery of under $300 dresses (with a wide range of prices) that are nice enough for a formal dinner occasion but forgiving enough to account for that delicious third helping of stuffing. Please note that if you’re not embarrassed of your Thanksgiving potbelly, by all means buy a bodycon dress and own it.
