There are few things more intimate and magical than a bathroom haircut from a friend, a relative, or a lover. The technique is also one of Jane Birkin’s secret beauty tricks. In a piece for The Guardian, she writes, “My best friend cuts my hair with kitchen scissors.” The 66-year-old fashion icon also likes to keep it simple with her favorite outfit, “an old pair of jeans, Converse and a man’s jersey.” She “[colours] her hair mousy brown and [wears] makeup only on stage.

The online world has been a buzz with photographer, Petra Collins, and her menstrual blood-themed t-shirt. Collins designed the shirt, which is illustrated with a menstruating hairy vagina (vulva), especially for American Apparel.

The dude behind it brilliantly uses Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld’s Manhattanite characters to critique contemporary obsession with celebrity and technology. Tweets include banal and hilariously self-involved reflections on topics ranging from Breaking Bad to kale, and they include unbelievably hilarious misspellings. The account stays true to the sitcom’s scathing satire of the hilariously vain characters. Read More

For thousands of years, embroidered patches have been a means of identification. Dating back to the ancient cultures of the Mediterranean, Mideast, China, and India, elaborate hand-stitched fabric swatches were tools used for the military. Other times, such embellishments were a sign of beauty for other important personnel, stitched onto the robes of royalty or religious figures. Even today, patches are seen on a wide range of people: from the military to sanitation workers and even, of course, on Boy and Girl Scouts. Read More

We're loving the fashions in these 1970s-era pictures of students at Brooklyn's Saint Joseph's College, which Flavorpill posted recently.
Many of the styles look pretty similar to the ones ladies are sporting today, like the large black-rimmed glasses, pea coats, button downs, and belted waists. In fact, there are probably awesomely stylish girls dressed like this walking around Brooklyn right now.
There are also quintessentially 70s plaids, vests, flares, and jumpers (most likely made out of wonderful heavy polyester). Read More
