Gilly Hicks has just launched its online shopping feature with the slogan “Gilly makes cute bras and underwear.” That’s fine and innocuous until you get to the intro portal page of GillyHicks.com, which features a large picture of a girl in her bra flanked by six very muscular and very nude guys. Admittedly, they all have really impressive asses and it is definitely enticing, but I’m a bit weirded out by the girl just standing there with her hands over the two asses on either side of her and giving us a cheeky smile. It’s kind of ironic that less clothing sells more clothing.
Gilly Hicks is supposedly the “cheeky cousin of Abercrombie & Fitch” inspired by the Australian “Down Under” phrase. The brand was introduced pretty recently as a competitor in women’s intimate apparel to establishments like Victoria’s Secret, Frederick’s, and Aerie. Abercrombie & Fitch is known for its use of sex appeal to market its clothing, but Gilly Hicks has definitely taken it to a whole new level…
What do you think?
Ty has just made the cutest new additions to their TyGirlz Collections: Sweet Sasha and Marvelous Malia.
Sound familiar? Well you should, they’re Obama’s little girls! The plushies are modeled after the 7 (Sasha) and 10 (Malia) year olds. However, the misses disapproves of the dolls stating:
“We believe it is inappropriate to use young, private citizens for marketing purposes.”
Have to say I do agree. While they are model citizens for young girls (unlike Bush’s girls), that doesn’t mean you can cash in on their popularity.
Hello Kitty has done it again only this time she’s not as cute and cuddly.
Someone with a sick sense of humor put the famous Japanese albino cat on top of a cake while being impaled by a butcher knife. I have to say it is quite colorful but so much that I lost my stomach.
The 1920’s Flapper Girls have been roared down the runways of Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2009 Collection and are ready to take over your closet! Fringe is so right now and is easy to incorporate into your wardrobe without looking too costumey. Now get jazzed up and check out these great fringe pieces that won’t make you cringe:
Well, Bumble and bumble. is offering free styling, cuts, and/or color with their Model Project. Bb.U’s program offers students real live models to practice their craft on, and you (the model) a free hairstyle! There’s only one catch. Don’t go in just looking for a trim, because that’s not what they need you for. If you’re adventurous and ready for a new ‘do, then this could be for you. And since budgets are getting cut left and right, why not! IT’S FREE!
Cuts range from short layers to long men’s razor cuts and even to whatever is the current style trend. If you do the styling, you can get a blow dry, french roll, and a few more, color options are cool too, from a single process to highlights, or single process with highlights!
Head over to Bumble and bumble’s Model Project for more info on what’s offered and how you can sign up.
And I’m not talking about “LAN parties”, not really at least.
Kotaku writer AJ Glasser wrote a step by step walk through on how to throw a successful gamer party. Honestly, I didn’t think there was much to it but he does make out some good points such as
Do: Serve things that can be eaten quickly with one hand – usually during a loading screen (pizza rolls, hard candies, gamer grub). Don’t: Serve anything that will leave stains on your controllers or splooge all over the floor (Cheetos, pizza, mochi ice cream balls).
I’ve never thrown one myself but I think for my 20th birthday I will have a “LAN party”.
