Fashion Flashback: Projecting

Here’s a worthy goal for today. Let’s all try to be at least half as cheerful as this woman, who struck a perky pose while working in the projection booth of a Florida movie theater in 1970. Need a jump start on your good mood? Just think, at least you’re not required to wear that…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Trent Reznor, Circa 1994

I love every incarnation of Trent Reznor–awkward teen Reznor, super angry twenty-something Reznor, slightly bloated Reznor who was really into vests, even tuxedo-wearing Oscar-winning Reznor is OK with me. But I think we can all agree that early ’90s Reznor is really where it’s at. Screaming the lyrics to “Closer” with that Severus Snape haircut?

Wear Your Activism On Your Sleeve: Gay Rights Gear

I recently bought a “Some Kids R Gay. That’s OK.” tank top from fckh8.com and it’s quickly become one of my favorite pieces of clothing. I’ve lost count of the friends and strangers who have asked me where I got it so they can buy one for themselves and everyone they know, which is awesome,…

Fashion Flashback: This Dog Has Excellent Taste In Shoes

This photo from a 1944 issue of McCall’s magazine has me torn: do I yearn more for the vintage patent leather pumps and ornate t-straps, or the adorable terrier who seems to share my taste in shoes?

Do Not Want: Gap’s Denim Romper

Listen, Gap, I know you’re calling this a “denim romper” to try to make it seem trendy and fresh, but the truth is, I had the exact same piece of clothing in 4th grade, and back then we called it by its rightful name: “shortalls,” aka jean short overalls. Your version might not have Winnie…

What’s Your Most Dreaded Item To Shop For?

Yesterday, my friend Katelyn and I were walking around downtown Portland when I spotted a pair of ballet flats sitting on a sidewalk sale table. They were black patent leather with blue sequin details and, best of all, they had been marked down to 10 bucks. I scanned the stacks of boxes for a size…

An Open Letter To Everyone Who Has Ever Offered Me A Store Credit Card

Dear Everyone Who Has Ever Offered Me A Store Credit Card,

I don’t want a store credit card. I really don’t. I haven’t wanted any kind of credit card since I got my first one at age 18 and maxed it out in an eBay bidding war over a pair of limited edition purple…

Was Your Dad An Original Hipster?

A few weeks ago, my brother and I were looking at old family pictures and we came across a photo of my dad in the ’70s. He was wearing giant Terry Richardson-style glasses, short shorts, some kind of subversive message T-shirt, and rocking a full beard. We looked at each other, and I whispered, “Oh…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Prince William’s Wedding Outfit

Speculation about Kate Middleton’s wedding dress has sent the world into a frenzy. Who will design it? What’s the price tag? Does it look like Diana’s? Will the train be 10 feet or 10,000? Speculating about William’s outfit has proved slightly less exciting. Since he is expected to wear his Royal Air Force uniform, there’…

Who’s Your Celebrity Doppelganger?

My brother Devin (above left) looks a lot like Robert Downey Jr. I know this because every single time we go out in public at least one person will come up to him and tell him he looks like Robert Downey Jr. It’s gotten to the point where people will say, “I don’t know if…
