“Take me to your wine press.”

Congratulations and imaginary swag to Desideria. Imagine all the grapes they could stomp with those heinous rocker wedge shoes of theirs! And if you had to look like that all day for work, couldn’t you just kill a liter of Chardonnay when the whistle blows? For her imaginary swag of hypothetical glory, we present this much-better-dressed

Congratulations are in order to Liam Hemsworth, on his engagement to Miley Cyrus. It’ll be a horrible, short marriage, but as publicity stunts go, this one deserves all the attention it gets.

Cue video of a Kardashian actually getting impregnated in three, two, one…

Happy Birthday, Suzi Quatro!

Happy birthday, you icon of the black leather catsuit and the femullet.

I’ll try not to hold it against you how old you make me feel now you’re turning 62. Please God you’re not wandering a Floridian Walmart somewhere, in search of practical outfits.

Friday Caption Contest: Olympic Edition

Oh my. Mymymymymy. These are the official uniforms for podium staff at the London Olympics. Awfully…purple, aren’t they? It’s like, I don’t know, an outtake from a live-action version of The Jetsons Visit a Gay Bar or summat, as they’d no doubt say in Blighty.

Tell us what you’d say in the comments section.

Purple. Puuuuuurple.

Hump Day Hunk: Henry Cavill

Here you go. You were hinting last week, we know.

To be honest, our first impulse was to feature Our Future Husband (yes, again) but then, nobody’s quite sure what he looks like right now.

You know the old joke? What’s seven feet tall, has long blonde pigtails, and lives in an igloo in Greenland? Salman Rushdie. I sense an update coming…

It’s a Shamisen there aren’t more of these videos

You’ll know what I’m talking about once you’ve seen this. Posting because this is happening TODAY in my very neighborhood of Vangroover, and I am stuck up in the wine country. Gee, how should I drown my sorrows at missing this????

Perfect PJs

Once again we are referencing one of our favorite blogs, GiantPantsOfThe30s, which recently featured these breathtaking hostess pajamas. We are the iconoclasts of the Manolosphere in adoring proper pj’s for party or casual wear. These are good enough for the Museum of Fine Arts, so do not doubt they are good enough for your next dinner party, where you will channel Katherine Hepburn or Carole Lombard, depending on your mood, your hair colour, and whether your gimlet contains vodka or gin.

Lessons from Professor Bill Murray

We’re back! Thanks to Ubuntu upgrades for taking my computer offline for the past half-week. It was lovely to be welcomed back to the interwebs by Philosopher King Bill Murray, seen here nattering on adorably on the subjects of spiced rum, Wes Anderson, and quality Madras pants.
