Friday Frocks: Witchy Woman

By |October 21st, 2011|Friday Frocks, Why Did You Wear That?|

It’s that time of year again.  It’s always some time of year again though.  Anyway, the time of year I’m talking about is Halloween.  And while some of you may be crotch deep in slutty costumes, some of us are a little tired of plopping down 50 bucks for a pre-packaged costume the size of a dinner napkin from Ricky’s only to exile said costume to the far corners of our closets the day after fright night.  Luckily, there are quite a few frocks that can do double duty.  Not only are they spot on for Fall, they’d also make for very good witchy, vampy costumes with the right makeup and props.  Now to be clear, vampires just really aren’t my thing, but I’m not here to judge.  I’m in front of my TV every Monday night for Gossip Girl… so…

Anyway, wearing a black lace or deep red velvet frock with some snagged stockings, smokey eyes, and maroon lips would make for a very sultry, very sexy (not slutty) Halloween costume.  Pop some vampire teeth and fake blood in your clutch for added effect and you’ll be utterly bewitching.

The best part about a freaky frock?   If you happened to have a slumber party with your very own Edward Cullen, you simply must wash your face to make the walk of shame home at the break of dawn.




Monday Mashup: Warm Nuts?

By |October 10th, 2011|Monday Mashup|

One of my very favorite new TV shows (and probably soon to be one of this year’s most popular Halloween costumes) is PanAm.  What’s not to like?  Beautiful girls, handsome pilots, international intrigue… I swear, I will lose my mind if it suffers the same fate as Playboy Club and gets canceled.  I can not bear to watch anymore poorly scripted reality TV.  Anyway, these lovely ladies in blue are sure to inspire many to dress up this October 31 and probably even inspire some to submit their resumes to become “waitresses of the sky.” And apparently, it has already inspired two of pop music’s most famous females.

Whether intentionally or not, both Lady Gaga and Britney Spears have both donned blue flight attendant-esque attire.  So, my question is this: Who would make a better flight attendant (is that the politically correct term? I can’t keep up).







The List Volume XXXI

By |December 10th, 2010|The List|

Sometimes I struggle with the list… other times it flows like the Niagra Falls. This week it was the latter.

  1. Barbara Walter’s Ten Most Fascinating People. If those are the most fascinating people in our country, I need to move. Jennifer Lopez? The Jersey Shore? I hear the weather in Reykjavik is lovely this time of year.
  2. Wearing glasses with no lenses in them. I get it. You’re so ironic.
  3. Stupid bright colored eye makeup. Save it for 13 year old girls, spreads in Cosmo, and Halloween. You look absolutely ridiculous.
  4. Ringtones. I mean, who actually has their phone on anything but vibrate at this point, but really? Sexy Back?
  5. People who overdo it with the winter gear. I’m talking to you Los Angeles. It’s not that f*#(ing cold here. So remove your puffer, fingerless gloves, and ski hat. Try living in New York or Minneapolis. Then you’ll know what “cold” is.
  6. Brushing your hair in public. That’s just disgusting.
  7. Mariah Carey’s Christmas outfit. God bless her, but come on. You’re not 22 anymore. 
  8. Blogs that simply re-post things from other blogs or post magazine spreads. If I wanted a runway re-cap I’d go to Style.com. If I want to see the new spread in Vogue… I’d buy a copy. It’s called “original content.” Try it.
  9. T-shirts with tacky, intentional holes. Don’t know about you, but I try to get rid of moths in my wardrobe.
  10. Amaze-balls. People who say, “amaze-balls” probably also say “Sunday funday.” Have an amaze-balls Sunday funday, assholes.

The List Volume XXV

By |October 29th, 2010|The List|

Oh it’s that time of year again.  The time of year that women exploit their sexuality. I love costumes. I love themes. I hate brainless costumes. I hate cliches. Come on, you had all year to come up with something good and you opted for a slutty bumblebee?  Here’s ten costumes I BETTER not see this weekend:

  1. Lady Gaga. In any way, shape, or form.
  2. Hooters girl. It wasn’t funny the first time. Guess what? It still isn’t funny.
  3. Anyone from the Jersey Shore. Make it stop.
  4. Anyone from Glee. No one’s gonna know who you are anyway.
  5. This thing:
  6. Anything from Twilight. I mean, haven’t we had ENOUGH?
  7. Any costume that came in a plastic bag or from Ricky’s. Use your noggin.
  8. A slutty nurse/taxi driver/school girl/ballerina/red riding hood/Tinkerbell/firefighter/toaster/martini. Basically anything that requires the word “sexy” in front of it.
  9. The Kardashians.
  10. Chilean miners. Too soon.

Happy haunting, bitches.
