AVOID A LITERAL FASHION HANGOVER WITH CHIC WIDE-FITTING SANDALS

Published on 04.04.12

Along with April showers and May flowers, the onset of warm weather can bring the unfortunate mishaps of transitioning out of winter wardrobe mode. Errant bra straps and farmers’ tans abound when vitamin-D-induced enthusiasm leads to poor judgment. When the sandals finally come out, it can get worse. It’s almost a seasonal rite of passage […]

THE DOPE SHOW AT YOHJI YAMAMOTO FALL ’12

Published on 03.05.12

The clothes from the Yohji Yamamoto Fall ’12 runway, fashioned for a futurist ice queen of hearts, needs to be available in stores this INSTANT, because this is precisely how I feel down to the moment. The collection projects an obtuse sexual power, carrying both quiet anarchy and geometric dissonance in spades. I wouldn’t feel right […]

IMPULSE BUY: SUNO CARDIGAN + VPL SHORTS VIA STEL’S

Published on 02.17.12

Stel’s in Boston (slash on the internet) always has an influx of classic-yet-off pieces by labels like Assembly and Jeunesse. I popped in yesterday for my standard weekly 2-hour hangout (and top secret future project brainstorm) and couldn’t help but combine a couple things from the latest shipment with the signature jank I was already […]

#TRENDING 2K12: GOING BACK TO YOUR ROOTS

Published on 02.17.12

Having burned through just about every schizophrenic hair color there is (white, elderly-gray, striped, pink-streaked, dirty turquoise amongst others, with photos for LOLz after the jump) in my transition from REAL ACTUAL WOMAN to pansexual internet queen, I was recently beginning to feel as if I’d hit an impasse: should I just go natural? Bored […]

SURFING THE NETSTYL.ES WITH PICTUREPLANE + VARIOUS ARTISTS

Published on 02.15.12

I have to hand it to Sterling Crispin for curating this tight arsenal of curious, hypergraphic tees designed by some of our favorite #artists (including himself), via the netstyl.es online shop. Only ten editions of each t-shirt will be available, priced across the board at $147 each. I loved Pictureplane‘s interpretation so much (government name: Travis Egedy) […]

#NP – DRAKE FEAT. LIL WAYNE + TYGA – THE MOTTO

Published on 02.07.12

COURTESY NOTE: LYRICS #NSFW SO BLAST IN THE WORKPLACE AT YOUR OWN PERIL. Anyone who knows me IRL or follows me on twitter knows that my affinity for Young Money is likely worthy of some type of medical diagnosis. I won’t even talk about how it is one of my many dreams in life to […]

AMY’S WINEHOUSE LEFT US ON A HIGH NOTE WITH HER LAST COLLECTION FOR FRED PERRY

Published on 01.03.12

English tennis-wear brand Fred Perry’s final Amy Winehouse collection, designed by the late icon, just premiered (posthumously) online this week. Winehouse’s passing was a sad loss for both the music and fashion communities. The singer’s look was just as iconic as her voice; a messy, slapstick flash/trash reinterpretation of classic girl group The Ronettes’ body-hugging […]

KELLY WEARSTLER LAUNCHES RESORT

Published on 12.13.11

I will say what so few others seem unwilling to: I’m sick of celebrity clothing collections. Utterly, utterly bored of them. Why? Well, save for the notably successful Olsen sisters and Spice-Girl-cum-Fashion-Icon Victoria Beckham, most licensed ‘collections’ are down-market, lowest-common-denominator attempts to capitalize on the brand equity of a celebrity’s name. Not that I don’t […]
