New York Fashion Week kicks off in two days (!!!), but it is not only for the elite, style-forward mavens of Vogue as one may think. Fashion Week is for the creative and the curious as well.
“HA!” you might be thinking. “This girl clearly has never attempted to attend a fashion week show, ever.”
And you’d be right, which is exactly why I’m not going wax poetic about the genius that is Proenza Schouler or Miu Miu ... Read More

Remember when Just Kids came out and everyone & their mother was reading it? “So raw,” “#robertmapplethorpe,” etc. The book is, obviously, awesome - Patti Smith is an artistic maven and ETHEREAL GODDESS. Her prose is out of control and totally hinges on those bittersweet moments (that could easily be turned into lyrics. We know what you’re up to, Smith).
"What an honest window into Smith’s life," you might be ... Read More

Not sure whether I’d be disgruntled or delighted to reach for my favorite candy bar at a deli, only to realize that it wasn’t a candy bar at all, but a plush replica. On second thought, I’d be pretty delighted, especially if everything in the whole store had been replaced by adorable, hand-stitched felt duplicates.
British artist Lucy Sparrow devoted seven months to making that happen, and her completed project, The Corner Shop, is on ... Read More

In her day, Ultra Violet was a purple-haired ... Read More

It’s not news to any of us that Jane Austen is one of the most amazing goddess/writers of human history, which is why, whenever I hear about anything remotely Austen-esque, I get ridiculously excited. Then, when I learn that this Austen-spired thing is also super feminist and fabulous, I need to take a second to avoid hyperventilation.
You can only imagine what my morning looked like when I clicked the link to Manfeels Park, a comic with dialogue ... Read More
