Style Yourself is a book full of fashion bloggers, such as Sea of Shoes’ Jane Aldridge, who writes the foreword, Style Rookie’s Tavi Gevinson, Style Bubble’s Susie Lau, The Glamourai’s Kelly Framel, and Keiko Groves of Keiko Lynn, among many other awesome bloggers. The book aims to be a guide to personal style with advice from many of the bloggers. While I enjoy having a tangible book to draw inspiration from and love the fabulous blogger ... 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, ... Read More
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 ... Read More
Last Tuesday, July 12, at St. Mark's Bookshop, I had the distinct honor of listening to a panel of three super rad and super interesting ladies talk about their experience when it comes to being a woman working in media, their role in showcasing women through media, and how they view the overall consumption and creation of mainstream and indie media. Speakers included: Mindy Abovitz (Tom Tom Magazine, Editor), Emily Rems (BUST magazine, Editor), and ... Read More
I can't decide if this Steve Buscemi dress by Black Milk is ridiculous or awesome..or ridiculously awesome. I happen to think Steve Buscemi is amazing. He's hilarious in a weird sort of way and I kind of find him secretly attractive in GhostWorld (..Right?!..No? Am I alone here?), but do I want to wear his face on my boobs? I don't know about that..
Buy one here if you dare and happen to have an extra $100 lying around.
And just for kicks, here's the ... Read More
Recently featured on The Ones 2 Watch, check out some cosmic inspired work by one of my favorite up and coming photographers, Ignacio Torres. His most recent project, Stellar, uses a similar gif format to blogger Jamie Beck's lovely cinemagraphs, but while her photos create a more realistic movement and tone, Torres’ work evokes a different kind of magically whimsical quality that instantly catches your eye.
He explains Stellar by stating on his ... Read More
The Pains' video for their newest single, "The Body" off their album Belong is probably my favorite of theirs so far. They've had super 8 film adorableness in "Everything With You," plushie parties in "Higher Than the Stars," and 90's record store madness in "Heart In Your Heartbreak," but this video for "The Body" hits a more nostalgic chord. I love the way it catches that mix of happy sadness and longing that nostalgia for a simpler time brings. It also doesn't ... Read More
At any given moment, there are at least a dozen fashion displays and exhibits going on around the world. Most recently, I saw the Alexander McQueen Savage Beauty exhibit at The Met and had no hesitation about considering it art, but I did start to wonder, “When does fashion become art” and “What exactly is the criteria?” Yesterday The New York Times published an article “Gone Global: Fashion as Art?” by Suzy Menkes, which I ...

I'd seen a few Missed Connection images before via tumblr, but my friend sent me the blog last night and I knew it should be Blog of the Week! Missed Connections is an illustration blog by Sophie Blackall, which takes inspiration from the missed connections of others and creates something whimsical from them. The images are ridiculously adorable and the sentiment behind them ranges from sweet and heart-warming to fascinating or strange.
As someone who loves ... Read More
A few photos from 14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld's new Fall 2011 Miu Miu campaign have emerged and while Miu Miu is one of my favorite brands and I think Hailee looks adorable in their clothes, the photo above kind of freaks me out in the same way Elle Fanning becoming "fashion's latest muse" at 13 years old freaks me out.
I think Hailee above and Elle Fanning in Marie Claire posted below look amazing and I admit, I love the photos. I feel like this brings up ... Read More
