  Though the language used in its commercial smacks of “so simple, even a woman can understand it,” I must admit that the Cuff is a pretty cool invention. It’s a little chip (or “tiny device with technology inside,” as the commercial puts it) worn in a piece of jewelry that, among other useful tricks, can send an alert to someone’s phone when you’re in danger. Just press the device, and a message gets sent to a friend or family member with your location, as well as audio of what’s happening at the scene. 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
Two of my favorite things—pin-up style and humanely-farmed poultry-are coming together! Marion Acres, a small farm in Portland, just had its annual “Ladies’ Chicken Harvest.” Ten women, all dolled up in red lipstick, victory rolls and polka dots, came to the farm for a day to try their hands at chicken harvesting, and it naturally made for some pretty priceless photos.  I love chicken, but how it’s farmed and processed is super important to me. Marion Acres’ chickens are pasture-raised and live full, healthy lives before they’re harvested. Read More

Black Milk Clothing is taking realistic body image to a whole new level this summer with their “Dem Guts” bathing suit—a suit with a print of the inner anatomy of the human body—guts and all!  It’s nice to see a clothing company which actually recognizes the fact that the women who will be wearing its products are human in every way (including some of the kind of weird/gross ways).

Just a short time after we got wind that David Lynch had designed Kenzo’s eerie most recent A/W show, we find out he’s at it again. Love of my life and artist extraordinaire David Lynch is collaborating with the fashion world again, this time, in pursuit of making the ultimate women’s work out wear. Lynch and the luxury US brand Live the Process have worked together in order to debut Lynch’s six-piece collection that features corset bras, scoop bras with geometric leggings, natty pairs of shorts and T-shirts that read “Change Begins Within.

Female nipples are as worthy of celebration as they are controversial. They have literally nursed life into new generations since the dawn of mammals, and yet in some states their exposure remains illegal. The viral #FreeTheNipple campaign has already made an impact in the way the world sees bare chests, as something human rather than pornographic, but a lot more still needs to be done. Luckily, Robyn and Michelle Lytle, creators of the TaTa Top, have taken the movement into their own hands. The TaTa Top is a bikini top with nipples and it’s nothing short of pure genius. Read More
I’ve been dyeing my hair since I was 10 years old. It's been just about every color imaginable- even green, and green is a tough hair color to rock. I also usually dye my hair myself since salons are so insanely expensive. I've collected more than a few tricks for achieving the perfect dye job over the years, so here are my top seven for all of you who are thinking about taking the color plunge.  1. Use a buddy! Dyeing hair, especially your own, is hard. Have a friend with you as backup to make sure you’ve applied the pigment evenly, especially the back and underside. Read More
Are you as sick of the endless lingerie search, foraging for a larger cup size that is not boring and/or overpriced? I wear a bra size 34F and let me tell you, finding a bra that is comfortable, supportive, and cute all for an affordable price is a true pain. The boutique stores with small lacy bras for smaller sizes just don't offer the kind of support larger breasts need and the large chains like Victoria Secret and Macy's are always throwing diamonds and bows all over everything. Also, I certainly can't afford the intricate bras from the stores specializing in larger breast sizes. Read More
