Esquire just released a listicle enumerating the “80 Books Every Man Should Read.” That’s fine. This is a men’s magazine appealing to men so the creatures whom their list is intended for is every man. They even admitted that their list is “...unranked, incomplete, and utterly biased.” Supposedly, this list is culled from someone’s idea of the greatest literature available to readers.
But, goddamn, Esquire! Eighty books and ... Read More

Sixteen-year-old fashion-blogging phenomenon Tavi Gevinson has already carved out a prominent place for herself in pop culture, appearing in the front rows of Paris fashion shows, the pages of The New York Times, and her own TED talk. Here, she opens up about girls, grinding, and getting shit done.
I'm a 42-year-old woman, and I work for a 16-year-old girl. This seems normal to me, as my philosophy on bosses has always been that I won’t work ... Read More

Confession: I have a bit of a saddle shoe obsession. In my opinion, there's nothing not awesome about these old-school lace-ups. They're super comfy, stylish, and fun in that "sock hop" kind of way. They can elevate a casual look to classic and a dressy look to casual. Add some ruffled socks and we're totally in business.
Right now, some of the saddle-shoe related cuteness I'm digging is this easy D.I.Y. via Rookiemag.com. I can't wait to try ... Read More

Fashion and feminism, to many, are like oil and water. How does one reconcile the desire to look good with a mindset that wants women to be judged by more than simply their appearance? The tension is rooted in more than just contradictory mindsets. There are also the fashion industry facts of body policing, of white-washing the runways, of the over-sexualization of the female form. The list goes on and on.
Miuccia Prada, head designer of (you guessed it) Prada and ... Read More
