Starry, Starry Bra

This Starry Night bra is currently just an awesome art project (medium listed: “acrylic on bra”), but I’d be first in line to buy one if they ever hit stores. Not only do I love Van Gogh’s work, but it would go perfectly with my Mona Lisa thong. [via deviantART] Keep reading »

In Praise Of Realistic Movie Wardrobes: “The Town”

Have you seen “The Town” yet? I loved it so much that I saw it once, waited a day, and saw it again. “The Town” was a hugely male-dominated movie, so one thing that really impressed me was the main female character’s cute-but-realistic wardrobe. Keep reading »

Lost In Space

As much as I adore this cosmic manicure, I also see it as a huge liability. It’s easy enough to slip into daydreams at my work desk without the distraction of tiny galaxies swirling across my fingernails. [via We Heart It] Keep reading »

Awesome Affordable Etsy Find: Anchors Aweigh!

Each year, for all eternity, fashion magazines proclaim, “The nautical trend is back in a big way!” Models pose in navy blue stripes and sailor hats and Top-Siders under clever headlines like “Anchors Aweigh!” (Sorry I had to.) This endless trend cycle can get a bit tiring, but the bright side? This adorable little anchor necklace is guaranteed to be in style forever. [$7, Etsy] Keep reading »

How Has Your Style Evolved?

Lately, I’ve been thinking about the evolution of my personal style. As a kid I was a chubby tomboy who favored dirty overalls and baggy T-shirts. In middle and high school, inspired by the indie music scene, I became a thrift shop queen (budding hipster?) with a large collection of vintage T-shirts. In college I decided I would become rural Oregon’s answer to Carrie Bradshaw and often wore tutus to my Comparative Religions class. Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Evil Genie Pants

These $88 “genie pants,” part of the Heidi Klum for New Balance collection, are giving me severe middle school flashbacks. My PE teacher wore a very similar pair of heather gray sweats every day as she forced us to do endless laps on the track and laughed as I writhed helplessly on the pull-up bar. At one point she caught wind of my underground revolution urging my classmates to “stroll the mile” rather than run, and she made me sit alone in a corner for the rest of the semester. Who knew she would one day inspire a supermodel to design a capsule collection? Keep reading »

Have You Ever Sent Fan Mail? Did You Ever Hear Back?

When I was in middle school I spent most of my free time assembling elaborate care packages and sending them to the Backstreet Boys. I’d stuff manila envelopes with hand-drawn portraits, games and quizzes (in case they got bored on their tour bus), and carefully crafted love letters to each band member. “Dear Howie,” I wrote, “I know that sometimes you’re under-appreciated because you’re so short and your voice kinda sounds like a woman’s, but trust me, I understand you.” To my favorite Backstreet Boy, AJ McLean … Keep reading »

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Jack White

It’s honestly hard for me to express in words how much I adore Jack White. I could say that I love him with the fire of a thousand suns. I could tell you that I played my vinyl copy of Icky Thump so many times that the record partially melted. I could inform you that every time I listen to The White Stripes or The Raconteurs or The Dead Weather (Jack White is a man of many bands), I check Craigslist listings for apartments in Nashville because I want to live the gritty country lifestyle Jack’s scratchy voice describes.

It should be no surprise then that I also love Jack White’s bohemian rockabilly style. After the jump, a few necessary pieces to channel the amazing Mr. White. Keep reading »

Dude Looks We Love: Vests

After I saw Inception for the first time, I left the theater with three existential questions racing through my head:

  1. What if reality as we know it is actually a dream world?
  2. Did Leonardo DiCaprio’s character ever really wake up?
  3. Why don’t more men wear vests?

The third one has weighed most heavily on my mind in recent weeks … Keep reading »

What Was Your Worst Work Uniform?

When I found out my friend Aileen once worked 8-hour days dressed as a Holiday Snoopy at the local outlet mall, I have to admit a part of me was a bit jealous. I’ve had some interesting jobs in my life — the night in D.C. when I was hired to keep drunk men away from Whoopi Goldberg comes to mind — but I’ve managed to avoid epically bad work uniforms. My professional past includes no propeller hats or suits shaped like a meatball sandwich. In fact, the strictest dress code I’ve had to adhere to was the green apron and black polo shirt required at Starbucks, accessorized with a hearty splatter of mocha all over my face and hair.

I know you guys can easily one-up me on this one, so let’s hear it: What was your worst work uniform? Keep reading »
