Send Nudies IF SOME DUDE on Craigslist hadn’t dicked her over when she tried to buy his chainstitch machine, Judith Pierce, the “stitch witch” behind Rose-Cut Clothing (rustycuts.com), may have never tried appliqué. Using this needlework technique, she no longer needed expensive, specialized equipment, and her line of Western-inspired pieces was born. The L.A.-based designer had been using vintage fabrics—from velvet paintings to old Star Wars and Budweiser sheets, “every kitschy thing that you can think of,” she says—when she decided to lean into her obsession...
  Charmed CHARM BELTS ARE all the rage again. But you don’t need to drop mad loot on this look. Instead, you can customize your baubles to better match your personal brand by making this season’s hot accessory yourself. 1. Measure your waist, double that, and add 15" to calculate the length of chain you’ll need. Get a chain with large links; we used a 6mm curb chain (available at any jewelry supply store). The larger the links, the easier it will be to clasp the belt and...
  Float On Floating eyeliner, originally made famous in the ’60s by Twiggy, has been modernized with bright pops of color, thick uneven lines, super thin lines, or even broken up lines. Today’s version has no rules. The easiest method, pictured here, is a thick line of color. Using a chubby color pencil liner (like Sephora Collection Colorful Shadow & Liner in Turquoise, $14), draw a rounded line above your natural eye crease, just below the brow bone. Smudge the sharp pencil line with an eye shadow brush...

  FAMILY TIES In September 2017, Lesley Ware, a Brooklyn-based designer, educator, and author (Sew Fab and My Fab Fashion Style File), drove her then-83-year-old dad from her hometown of Muskegon, MI, to Lexington, KY, where her enslaved ancestors had lived in the mid-1800s. “Dad showed me where he, his father, and his grandfather had farmed; the home of the only Black doctor in town; the place where he collected rocks with his older sister Etta; and even a tree near where his mother had given birth...
In the nineteenth century, Easter Sunday was an occasion for ladies of all classes to don their most fashionable bonnets.  Some of these bonnets were specially bought for the holiday. Others were old bonnets made up with new trimmings. In either circumstance, Easter bonnets were as essential to celebrating Easter as were eggs and bunnies.  An 1889 edition of the Ladies Home Journal even went so far as to declare that it was “an accepted fact that every woman who can buy or make a...

  It’s a brave woman who lives her life eternally sans knickers (or panties, for you Americans) but until very recently, it was the norm. Though men throughout history wore underwear (Charles ll was a fan of a silken boxer short, FYI), it was considered improper for a lady to have anything between her legs. The Tin Man can’t even face the idea of something between a woman's legs. That is the level of scandal. The only ladies who dared buck this trend were scandalously rich Italian women in...
