As a hardcore Runaways fan, I was not surprised by the story that went up last night on the Huffington Post about the rape of Jackie Fuchs, original bassist for the legendary girl group The Runaways. In the excellently reported long-form article The Lost Girls by Jason Cherkis, Jackie alleges that their producer and manager, noted scumbag Kim Fowley, raped the then 16-year-old Fuchs while she was passed out, having been given Quaaludes, in 1975.

When it comes to fashion, my top priority is comfort. Sure, I’ll occasionally whip out those vintage stacked heel boots for a night out, but for day to day, I’m strictly a flats type of gal. That’s not to say I don’t care about footwear- oh I do.
