Alie & Georgia's Spiked Mint Milkshake

Is it hot where you live? Because it’s hot where we live (in L.A.). Very hot. And it’s not even summer yet!

It’s so hot, in fact, that the idea of baking makes our skin crawl and, frankly, makes us want a nap. We can deal with ice cream, though. And now that you mention it, a little booze would take the sweaty edge off nicely.

So while we love the idea of the darling Kristin Cavallari’s Dark Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches, the part that involves the oven and a lack of alcohol is something we can’t deal with in this heat. So we’ve changed it by taking out the baking part and adding the booze part. Hooray for heat! And naps. You can still take that nap.

2 oz. vodka
¾ oz chocolate liqueur
½ cup chocolate mint chip ice cream

1. Add all the ingredients to a blender.

4. Drink, then take that nap.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
