Curve Appeal (http://curveappeal.tumblr.com) is a blog, which argues, curves are beautiful too! Many of the pictures are self-submitted by readers, along with their measurements or are found images that have made their way on to the site. ... Read More
Spring is in the air, which means so is prom season. In celebration, a few designers and models have released prom photos of themselves from back in the day. Amongst the adorableness is Betsey Johnson who, turns out, was prom queen in the frilliest, puffiest, pinkest dress imaginable.

April Showers getting you down? Brighten up your spring, by wearing one of Dutch artist's, Sander Reijgers, new hoodies made from recycled sex toys!

Seeing the dolls gaping mouths hanging out of the back of a hood is mildly disturbing, but also strangely, pop art like.
The entire effect is very colorful, and pretty silly. I could see ... Read More
Tavi of Style Rookie’s newest post might come as a shock to some as she questions her passion for fashion, but surprisingly, I think it’ll make a lot of fashion lovers identify with her. Well maybe not in a “Can I have a normal conversation with Anna Wintour while wearing a Feminist sweater given to me by Kathleen Hanna?” kind of way, but in a growing up and finding that hardcore passion for something can come and go or wane in intensity. ...

This past week I was able to catch some of the most stylish South by Southwesters walking to and from the massive amount of shows and parties going on. From 6th Street to Waterloo Records, spring style was popping up everywhere. While I hear it's still chilly where I live in NYC, my hometown, Austin, Tx, decided to skip spring altogether and head right for summer sunshine. While it's both a blessing and a curse, one thing's for sure: it sure is refreshing to see ... Read More
