Six(teen) Sandals

BY Lan Truong in Style File

Every year, my toes eagerly await the first week in which temperatures hover around 70°. According to weather.com, that won't happen in New York City until May 11th [insert loud groan here]. It's a ways off (don't get me started on the shitty weather the Northeast had to endure earlier this week), but just think-- now you have more time to find the perfect pair of open-toed shoes for the summer. Below are six of our favorites, which you can ... Read More

Reviewed by Sheila Dichoso We can barely believe it’s been four years since the Ting Tings released their feverish debut, because it still sounds young and fresh. Back in 2008, We Started Nothing made us feel as badass as tripping cheerleaders stealing mascara at the mall, and that’s fine, but so very high school. Their sophomore album, Sounds From Nowheresville, has a more seasoned, sultry attitude. After touring their electro butts off on Nothing, ... Read More

Seeing Stripes

BY Lan Truong in Style File

I'll buy any piece of clothing—socks, underwear, dress, t-shirt—if there are stripes on it. My fondness for stripes probably has something to do with my love for repetition; I find it to be very calming. Also, I think stripes make people look cool, and I like to think that my coolness (on a scale of 1=low to 10=high) goes from a 1 to a 3 when I wear stripes. Pretty impressive. Here's a small roundup of striped dresses that I've got my eyes on. Marine ... Read More
I took a paper folding and engineering class when I was in college, and despite the shit-ton of paper cuts I got and all the times I nearly sliced my fingers open with an X-Acto knife, it ranks pretty high on my list of all-time favorite classes. No pain, no gain, right? Most people think of paper as something that you create on (you paint on it, draw on it, write on it, etc.) and don't realize that it's actually something that you can create with. It's an ...

Paula Scher, one of the key players and leading ladies of graphic design (she is the first and currently the only female partner at design firm Pentagram), likes to paint really big and really intricate maps. The sizes of the maps alone are impressive (some are as tall as 12 feet) but it's the obsessiveness over the details that's really stunning. Scher's maps are made up entirely of words and packed with an insane amount of information; continents and oceans ... Read More
