Looksee: Little Bits About Things We Dig


Revolution Girl Style Now

Still listening to Hamilton, or maybe you have a soft spot for Felicity, the American Girl Doll? Meet Ditto Historical. This Revolutionary War-inspired jewelry line was created by museum preservationist Miranda Peters, who draws on her experience working with 18th-century artifacts. Each accessory—such as the Join, or Die snake earrings or the Tea in Boston Harbor necklace—serves as a miniature exhibit. –Kinsey Gidick



Ruth E. Carter Forever

From Rosie Perez’s little red dress in Do the Right Thing (1989) to Angela Bassett’s queenly headpiece in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022), costume designer Ruth E. Carter has created countless iconic outfits. If you hurry, you can see them yourself at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History in Detroit, where the “Ruth E. Carter: Afrofuturism in Costume Design” exhibit is on display until March 31. Next, it moves to the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation in Williamsburg, VA, where you can catch it from May 11 to December 1. –Erika W. Smith


Plus Size + Vintage

It’s rare for plus-size people to get the chance to try on clothes in a store before buying them, even in fashion capitals like N.Y.C. So, it’s exciting that there’s a place like Plus Bklyn, which offers vintage and resale fashions in sizes 12 and up with the motto “Plus-size clothes that don’t suck.” If you’re not in N.Y.C., you can shop on their website or check out their Instagram (@plusbklyn). –EWS

I Love the ’90s

Kathleen Hanna’s latest project takes us back to the 90s, but not to riot grrrl. Instead, she’s launched a limited-edition apparel line called Early Days, which celebrates hip-hop legends including Queen Latifah and Salt-N-Pepa and features photography by Janette Beckman. Along with looking cool as hell, Early Days will also donate a portion of proceeds to Peace Sisters, a non-profit that supports girls’ education in Togo, West Africa. –EWS
