In the world of beauty, there are so-so products that get the job done, great products that exceed expectations, and then there are Holy Grail products. HG status is reserved for the ones that seem made just for you, the ones you’d never change, the ones you can’t live without. For the FFAF take on TSH, it’s HG or bust, and heavy on red lips and shiny hair.
Buy this sh*t and tell the world your truths, god damn it.
On 30 November 2013, Crystal had a dream. Today, that dream is realized: anything you can buy from Hot Topic can make Autostraddle money.
Do you celebrate it? Is it too soon? Should you get her something? What if she gets you something? Do you ask her out or is that too much pressure for a first date? Basically, Valentine’s Day is a red velvet ball of panic threatening to end your sanity and any hopes of a relationship you may or may not have. There’s a pretty good chance that if you look good, they may not notice just how much a wreck you are or how horrible the date is actually going. Here are a few pointers on how to razzle dazzle your lady friend!
Valentine’s Day. It’s essentially a capitalist ploy to sell thousands of Hershey’s Kisses (for drowning your sorrows or just blessin’ your boo). My general thoughts are: it’s a very ridiculous day for everyone, but I like telling people that I love them & I am a sucker for any sort of themed dressing.
Wildfang’s latest venture is a collaboration with LA brand Lucca Couture on a set of tailored suiting. Following the lead of fashionable #galpals Cara Delevigne & Kirsten Stewart, suiting and matching sets are back in vogue for the non-business, strictly non-dapper set. Hell, I want a suit (and I never thought I would).
Avoiding the saccharine but remaining sweet, & Other Stories chose models Eden Clark and Lizzie Tovell as the faces of a subtle Valentine’s day campaign.
As if decreasing daylight wasn’t bad on its own, there are inches of fluffy white flakes that are the equivalent to little middle fingers falling from the sky and winds cold enough to make you question if you even put on clothes today. We must survive, my friends. So here are a few of my own survival tactics.
Palazzo pants are everywhere and they are so happy to see you.
That gay ol’ time. Talkin’ about stuff and things. Maybe even new threads. And GIFs. Lots of GIFs. WOULD YOU HANGGGGG WITH ME?
Kristen’s off-duty looks are essentially a master class on lookin’ delectable in simple basics.
It’s the eve of a new year, and the best way to get a headstart on a rad 2015 is dressin’ to the nines to say goodbye to 2014. Whether you are feelin’ dapper as hell or on a shimmering ethereal tip, we’ve rounded up some awesome threads to look #flawless in.
As far as winter footwear is concerned you have two choices: fashion or function. That doesn’t mean your choices are “look cute and freeze” or “stay dry and sacrificing lookin’ winsome.” Lovely human, you’ve got options.
Queer and trans women of color living life, how to pet a cat, women punching people, grownup tomboy style, Everyone IS Gay, Brittani Nichols made them all that way, you can buy music, the Trans 100, abortions, a shitbag man got fired, poison, #pdxcarpet, turtles, marijuana, what I’m wearing this weekend.
This year, rather than scoffing at the isle of misfit sweaters and hats no one wants to play reindeer games in, I challenge you to embrace the hideousness. Allow yourself to lower your guards to the bright reds, greens, silvers, and blues and really snuggle into some ugliness.
Now I know that a burning log of wood on a TV screen doesn’t bring the same warmth as a real, live fireplace but there is something oddly comforting about watching a loop of a fire for a solid 4 hours. You can grab some cookies, whip up some boozey eggnog and catch up with pals. Or just take a nap. What exactly does one wear to sit still for a solid afternoon? I’m glad you asked.
DapperQ has partnered with Brooklyn Museum to present an evening of dapper style!
What do you get someone who has knack for Kanye-esque levels of style? Don’t you worry, I got you covered.
My knees look like I’ve been crawling around in the fireplace. My lips are so dry you could peel off a layer and roll a joint in it. I’m itchy as hell y’all, but thankfully, I have an arsenal of products to keep me whet as a whistle.
Pumpkin everything is the highlight of my autumn, but as you may well know it’s also the center of a lot of unnecessary girl hate. Demonizing girls for liking pumpkin flavored things is silly, so let’s snuggle up by the fireplace celebrate with a pumpkin spice smokey eye.
