Halloween Blood Drip Necklace Hilariously Resembles Another Bodily Fluid


(PCM) Online retailer ASOS is receiving a fair amount of internet heckling after images of one of their Halloween accessories has now gone viral. The company is getting into the Halloween spirit and are currently selling a glow-in-the-dark “dripping blood” choker style necklaces. Sounds cute right?

Well, it seems there is a slight issue with the “dripping blood” style, as many feel the necklace design more closely resembles another type of bodily fluid. One you certainly would not want showcased on your neck, although we suppose it certainly could work as a statement piece.

Perhaps if they had somehow colored the necklace red instead of white  the design could have worked, but currently it would take a brave soul to sport this one! We can only imagine that someone in the design department will not be having such a Happy Halloween for creating this gem! It is just something we will fail to ever unsee!

Ever Wonder Why Everyone Woman On TV Has The Same Hair? We’ve Got The Answer!


(PCM) If you are a avid television fan like us than you have probably taken notice that nearly everyone woman that graces the screen appears to share the same hair cut. Seriously, take a look. It’s mind-blowing.

We figured that there had to be some sort of logical reasoning behind this hair phenomenon and lo and behold Racked.com has actually discovered the answer to this puzzling mystery.  It actually has more to do with continuity and production than it does with actual fashion. By the women all sharing the same loose and face-framing style with slight curl at the ends, it allows those behind-the scenes to spend less time worrying if hair is the correct length or a piece is out of place, as the style allows for free movement.

Check out the video explanation below:

Always learning new things everyday! At least we have finally moved away for hairstyles like the Jennifer, the Farrah and the Angelina.

Tim Gunn Criticizes The Fashion Industry For Not Accepting Plus-Size Women


(PCM) The demand for stylish and high quality, yet affordable plus size fashion has been on the rise for a good number of years now, however the designers and the fashion industry overall do not want to accept it.

According to recent studies the average American woman is between a size 16 and size 18, however the overall majority of fashion designers outright refuse to create anything that is above a size 12. Do they not realize they are completely alienating a tremendous segment of the shopping population? Apparently they don’t seem to care.

Recently, Project Runaway host Tim Gunn ripped into the fashion industry for their failure to accept plus size women saying “I love the American fashion industry, but it has a lot of problems, and one of them is the baffling way it has turned its back on plus-size women. It’s a puzzling conundrum. The average American woman now wears between a size 16 and a size 18, according to new research from Washington State University. There are 100 million plus-size women in America, and, for the past three years, they have increased their spending on clothes faster than their straight-size counterparts. There is money to be made here ($20.4 billion, up 17 percent from 2013). But many designers — dripping with disdain, lacking imagination or simply too cowardly to take a risk — still refuse to make clothes for them.”

In fact, Gunn even went out and spoke with several designers asking them why they fail to create for this particular demographic and their answers broke our hearts. Gunn claims their response was “I’m not interested in her.” Why? “I don’t want her wearing my clothes.” Why? “She won’t look the way that I want her to look.”

Ouch! They are seriously discriminating against a very large group of people. We are thrilled to hear that Tim Gunn has shared his thoughts on the matter and hopefully the fashion industry will see the error of their ways in good time.

Kanye Sets His Sights On Designing School Uniforms


(PCM) Always one to chase the latest fashion trend, rapper Kanye West is setting his sights in a completely different direction claiming that he would now like to design school uniforms for the city of Chicago.

He feels that his school uniform designs would help bring about an end to bullying and classism within the public school system. Kanye may actually be on to something, as school uniform use in urban areas is on the rise according to the National Center for Education Statistic, especially in areas known for high rates of gang violence.

On the other side the American Civil Liberties Union feels that incorporating school uniforms infringes upon students freedom of speech and expression. We can definitely see the pro and cons of this debate, however we would certainly be curious to see just what kind of uniform design Kanye would come up with, you can’t say you’re not curious, too!

Ladies Looking For A Quick Buck? You Can Sell Your Used Panties Online!


(PCM) Ladies who are search of a way to make a few extra bucks will be surprised to learn that there is a whole online market dedicated to the buying and selling of used or soiled panties. As disgusting as it sounds, many women are making thousands of dollars just by selling their unmentionables to the highest buyer.

In fact, one woman in particular is making headlines after she wore the same pair of panties for three weeks straight (yuck!), but ended up selling them for the price tag of $5,000. If you can get over the yuckiness of it all, that is truly not a bad amount of money despite it being pretty gross.

The woman says she signed up through the website, Sophia Gray, which calls itself an online marketplace for “lovingly used underwear”.  Whatever that means! The woman noticed that others were making pretty good money off of the website and says she tries to list at least three to four pairs per week. In addition, to the $5,000 she made for wearing the underwear for three weeks for a client, she has made close to $4,000 in the six months that she has been using the website.

She claims that she would never do the whole three week panty wearing thing again, however she will continue to list on the site. She also says that buyers will know if you cheat so it’s not worth it, as apparently they are experts with their merchandise.
