For those of you who remember the day Frances Bean Cobain was born (like me), be prepared to feel a leeetle old. Lil’ FB is now lookin’ like a grown-ass woman, and in this photo shoot she did with former Dior Homme/YSL designer Hedi Slimane, she pretty much owns the camera. I know Kurt and Courtney are her parents and all, but it still freaks me out a little how much she looks like both of them. A whisper of the past in the face of the future. And hot damn, them are some good-lookin’ genes. Go to Hedi's site for the whole smoldering shoot. Read More
Last week, I got to spend an hour talking to the adorable Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart, designer of the line Vaute Couture, in her cozy West Chelsea studio. Vaute Couture (pronounced like “haute” but with a v for vegan) is a chic coat line that just so happens to be vegan, eco-friendly, and super warm! As an added bonus, Hilgart is a vegan queen. She knows every vegan restaurant worth knowing in New York City and beyond. She also happens to be best friends with one of my vegan man-heros, The Discerning Brute, aka Joshua Katcher. Read More
  D.C. native and Brooklyn-based designer Ellen Van Dusen is Dusen Dusen. Her label is bursting with vibrant textiles featuring hand-drawn designs which complement her sleek, no-fuss shapes that say "relax—you can do this; I understand you." At the crux of Van Dusen’s designs are sought-after elements of comfort and accessibility without the sacrifice of personal style or dignity. The line is as wonderfully unpretentious and refreshingly laid-back as the designer herself. Read More
  There’s something about summer that just makes me want to shop, and right now I’m way into this adorable collection from Brooklyn-based designer Meghan Sebold’s label Afia. The pieces are totally cute and colorful—prints and pleats galore!—but it gets even better. The fabric is sustainedly sourced in West Africa and the line’s handsewn at a women’s co-op in Ghana, providing fair wages to rural villagers. Read More
    Meet Erin. She runs Calivintage, one of my favorite fashion blogs out there. I go to Calivintage for pretty picture, vintage style inspiration and lovely street style shots from other websites. I previously posted her picture in "My Summer Wishlist" where I was coveting her lovely cat print dress. You can check this lovely lady out at Calivintage. Read More
Here are just a few fashionable New Yorkers that I've come across in the past few weeks, including one fabulous former Project Runway contestant! The above photo of Vintage Vandelizm blogger, Jasmin Rodriguez, is one of my very favorite looks. From head to toe, this girl is committed to glamour in a way I really appreciate and admire. She works with a friend of mine at the awesome Billy's Antiques on Houston street in NYC. Below is the wonderful designer Austin Scarlett of Project Runway Season 1. Read More

I've been wearing the same damn swimsuit since 2005, and my too-small bikini bottom is causing me more anxiety than if I were to swim with the sharks or go on the Jersey Shore boardwalk. Still, swimsuit shopping isn't my forte; I hate the paper crotch strips and I'm just too lazy. But these monster swimsuits from Iron Fist may finally convince me to ditch my dingy bikini. These freaky tops and bottoms are sure to get you attention - just be prepared to say, "Ahem, my eyes are up HERE...oh, wait." Thanks to these swimsuits, I've made my selection for Friday Movie Night... Read More
Most blog-reading folks know The Satorialist, the now-famous street style blog by Scott Schuman, but do you know The Satorialtwist? This clever blog splices pictures from The Satorialist to create some interesting, hilarious, and even cute outfits (such as the one above). I'm not sure how Schuman feels about the blog, but I like to think he'd be flattered considering the disclaimer Harry Woodrow, The Satorialtwist's creater,  posts on the site, which says, "All images are from The Sartorialist and used without permission but with love and respect.

Our favorite "doen't give a fashion fuck" actress, Helena Bonham Carter is Marc Jacobs' latest muse and model for his Fall 2011 collection. Some of these photos are not exactly the most conventionally attractive, but that's exactly what makes them amazing. Right now the fashion world is oohing and ahhing over Elle Fanning's MJ campaign, but these photos are the real gems. A true style icon is someone who beats to the tune of her own drum. No one encompasses that more than this lovely lady. Read More
