"On the day when it will be possible for woman to love not in her weakness but in strength, not to escape herself but to find herself, not to abase herself but to assert herself--on that day love will become for her, as for man, a source of life and not of mortal danger. In the meantime, love represents in its most touching form the curse that lies heavily upon woman confined in the feminine universe, woman mutilated, insufficient unto herself."

Remember when we posted those sweet pics of Madonna from the ‘80s?Well, this might be even better...

Founding Blondie member Chris Stein is releasing vintage photos of the band online starting this week.

Posting them online and having them reach a new, younger generation of fans is really cool. Read More
I’m a big vintage photo collector, so I was pretty jazzed when I found a whole basket of late 1930s photos hidden away at a local antique store. This particular bunch of images all appear to be from the same group of friends and family--snapshots from summers together between 1936 through 1938. While the hot days keep getting hotter, these photos are a perfect source of inspiration on how to look cute and still stay cool. They’re also an adorable glimpse into some of the happy moments of these ladies’ and gents’ lives together--not to mention a great look at everyday 1930s fashion. Read More
