When I was in high school, I remember only seeing girls ridiculed for their tank tops or shorts. But the boys were able to walk by the deans revealing their boxers while sagging their pants or wearing tank tops, and with ease! So I can understand the frustration of the students at Tottenville High School in Staten Island. With a new school year, a new dress code was enforced. This dress code bans tank tops, short-shorts, miniskirts, leggings, skinny jeans, ... Read More
Start carving those pumpkins kids, 'cuz Halloween is right around the corner. October 31st is, in my not so humble opinion, the sexiest holiday, depending on whether or not you find stuffing a Thanksgiving turkey at all sexual. To each her own. Anyway, the annual celebration is guaranteed to bring with it an onslaught of girls dressed in skimpy renditions of cops, pirates, or bunnies. If that’s your bag and you feel confident as hell walking down the street ... Read More
Well ladies, it's that time of year again, with the trees about to shed their leaves and 2015 looming right around the corner.

Chanel debuted their Spring/Summer 2015 collection on a fake Parisian boulevard within Grand Palais in Paris. The show’s clothing had a 1970s vibe with the tweed pantsuits and bright colorful blouses. It could have been a nod to the feminist movement in the seventies, since Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel’s creative director, ended the show with a feminist protest. Normally, I would be happy that feminism has reached a new audience but I don’t think the message was ... Read More
For six years straight I've been dying my hair unnatural colors.During this time I've written a two different guides to unnatural hair colors and within months each has felt a bit outdated for one reason or another. My most recent set of posts on the subject was published back in 2011. In all honesty, to me, those three posts feel rushed. I've decided to rewrite my hair series a little differently, with more photos, and with more information. First I'm going to ... Read More
It’s often said that, “age is nothing but a number.” But in the inspiring fashion documentary Advanced Style, the golden years are elevated to such enviable heights, younger viewers may actually walk away biting the styles of the seniors in their midst. Based on photographer Ari Seth Cohen’s popular blog and book of the same name, and directed by Lina Plioplyte, the film is a vibrant celebration of elderly New York women and the wardrobes ...

  Not gonna lie to y'all, there are definitely days when I would prefer to wear both my sweatpants and my down comforter outside my apartment instead of doing the civilized thing of putting on "normal" pants. Like my sweatpants are second class citizens or something. Rude.    ANYWAY, according to a recent study, it seems as though covering up on the reg leads to an improved body image. And not just a hoodie hiding third-day top knot hair coverage. ... Read More
