Meet Elvia Lahman and Hannah Metz, founders of The Loved One. What began as a vintage wholesale business quickly blossomed into a popular online store and a series of pop-up shops in Los Angeles and New York. Priding themselves on their selection of quality vintage and American-made lingerie, the pair eventually settled into their own retail space in Pasadena. The Loved One now carries their own line of lingerie and a line of clothing reconstructed from vintage garments called Made by TLO.

The host would giggle at her shitty English, she'd do some kind of funny dance or musical performance, and everyone would laugh. Read More

Yet unless you make a conscious habit of touring the cobblestoned side streets of the Lower East Side or popping into the Tenement Museum every now and then, it can be easy to forget that the whole of this island was once a grimy, industrial, cluttered port. Well... okay, so it's still all those things. But it sure looked a lot cooler in the 1900s, no?*
Thanks to a collection of high-res images at Shorpy Historical Photos, we can get a detailed glimpse of a past life. Read More
