Be still, our hearts! Starbucks continues to win us over: First, with its newly minted secret menu additions and, now, the coffee company is celebrating Valentine’s Day early with the arrival of three new coffee beverages.

All the drinks combine two of our favorite things in life (excluding Drake, of course): coffee and chocolate — and do so in the form of a latte, Frappucino and hot chocolate.

The Molten Chocolate Latte, Molten Chocolate Frappuccino and Molten Hot Chocolate are comprised of melted chocolate chips, a mocha and espresso-infused whipped cream and an espresso whipped drizzle in addition to its usual ingredients.

Of course, as with all good things, there’s a catch. Much like McDonald’s beloved Shamrock Shake or Starbucks’ seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte, these drinks are also up for grabs for a limited time. Like, super limited … as in they’ll only be gracing us with their chocolate-y goodness this week only.

Who needs a Valentine’s Day date when you’ve already found bae in Starbucks’ Molten Hot Chocolate? (cue Mariah Carey’s “Vision of Love”).

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.
