Amelia McDonell-Parry

Born and raised in California, Amelia moved to NYC after graduating from the University of California at Santa Cruz. After toiling away at Interview, Rolling Stone and Maxim magazines, she made the move online and has been basking in the harsh glow of her laptop screen ever since. When she's not spending her days editing and writing (about topics as vast as feminism, Ryan Gosling, "Star Trek," and the latest D-list sex tape), Amelia is buying peonies, hanging with her dog Lucca and dreaming about her next vacation.

So I’m flipping through Lucky this morning, which is normally filled with clothes I totally can’t afford (seriously, a $700 shirt guys?), when I noticed a blurb about Quiksilver. You know, the surf clothing company? Apparently they’ve hired a new designer and she’s taking their women’s street wear line in a totally new, awesome direction. READ MORE »

Remember those “True Love Waits” sweatpants we posted about the other day? Well, K-Mart is claiming that the sweats’ message has nothing to do with abstinence and that the bloggers who say that they do are making their own inference. Uh-huh.

I have a total thing for Mandy Moore that is not very easily explained. She’s no superstar in any department, though I think she’s a decent actress and singer (frankly, I loved her album of cover songs). But something about her seems nice and smart and she’s definitely stylish, which is why we’ve… READ MORE »
