There is some serious body love going down on Instagram right now.  A new account, @LoveYourLines, is a photo project that posts beautiful photos of women’s stretch marks. The account was created by two East Coast moms after a conversation about how their bodies have changed after pregnancy. It was an instant success, gaining over 24,000 followers in just eight days.   Each black and white photo is a close-up of a different woman’s body, and a brief quote or backstory. Read More

Dirty Dancing Style Guide

BY Caelan in Style

Dirty Dancing didn’t only make household names out of Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze (R.I.P.) but it was also an iconic teen love story that made water dancing, Keds and summer camp seem cool. This movie was iconic not only in the mom-jeans hall of fame, but it also became essential when talking about 80’s fashion, so today I’m bringing baby out of the wardrobe corner and into 2014. So without further ado, here's how to incorporate 80’s fashion into your wardrobe without looking like the lady who sells Christmas sweaters on QVC or Sally Jesse Raphael. Read More

Skorts were my best friend as a kid, especially during the summer months.  The skirts on the outside were short enough to keep me cool and nice enough to wear to a friend’s birthday party, while the built-in shorts underneath allowed for unrestricted jungle-gym antics without having to worry about flashing the entire school. With the serious July heat setting in, I’m finding myself reminiscing about playground days, popsicles and the pure genius that is the skirt-shorts hybrid. Read More
Apart from her amazing performance in her band White Lung, it was Mish Way's unabashed admiration for Courtney Love that first endeared her to me.  For all her faults, Courtney taught a generation of girls that women could be wild rock stars too. Sure, there were lots of female-fronted rock groups like Veruca Salt and Garbage around, but none were nearly as in-your-face, smart and unapologetic as Courtney.  She always had an articulate and witty reply for her detractors and it spoke to my jaded teenage heart.
