We Feel Weird About Elle Fanning’s Fashion Muse Status

Okay, okay, so I get it: fashion’s always on to the next. The newest, the weirdest, the most avant-garde — and apparently, the youngest. And that’s why the Fanning children, Elle and Dakota, have been on fashion’s sweet radar for the last year or so, making the rounds in magazine editorials, on blogs and in designers’ campaign videos. Dakota, the elder Fanning, is the ripe old age of 17, and so we’re somewhat less troubled by her meteoric rise into the sweet embrace of fashion’s bosom. But younger sister Elle Fanning is only 13 years old. And she looks it!

Where To Get Custom-Made Clothes

The other day, I went out to buy some new jeans. I tried on 16 pairs and not one of them fit me right. Some were too big in the hips, some were too small in the waist, too long, too short, too reminiscent of Patricia Heaton’s wardrobe in “Everybody Loves Raymond,” etc. While I was able to refrain from crying in the dressing room, I was definitely frustrated and have been daydreaming about custom clothes ever since. Not “custom” as in picking the color scheme of your sneakers, but clothing that is actually made just for you, your style and your body. In case you share my dreams, here are a few sources for custom-made clothes–from jeans to cowboy boots–guaranteed fit like a glove…

The Surprising Reason Erykah Badu Stopped Wearing Her Head Wrap

“I’m always evolving. I visited Cuba to get a santería reading in 2000 and I didn’t know exactly what to expect. I went there, sat on the curb and waited for my reading. I had on this white head wrap and this white long dress and all of my jewelry, because it was part of me. It was who I was. I was overdressed because everybody else had on T-shirts and baggy tights …”

The 5 Best Pieces Of Advice My Dad Ever Gave Me

This coming Sunday is Father’s Day. I’ll be honest; Father’s Day has been varying degrees of difficult for me over the last 10 years. In my adulthood, my dad and I (that’s us on the left — bowl cut circle 1984!) have had a tough, up-and-down relationship for a variety of reasons (that I won’t get into because I have a therapist I pay to listen to such things!). In the last eight months, however, we’ve managed to develop the most genuine, sincere, and respectful relationship we’ve had in years. How? I think there are two big reasons: 1) we’ve forgiven each other for things that happened in the past and 2) we haven’t tried to recreate the relationship we had before, instead focusing on getting to know each other as people now. It’s far from perfect and I still miss the relationship we used to have, but it has been a relief to let go of the past and to focus on the future.

With that in mind, in honor of Father’s Day, I decided to share the top five pieces of advice my dad has given me over the years. (He has actually given me a lot more than five, but much of it would probably rub the general population the wrong way — he is a Communist-leaning lefty with a taste for psychedelics, after all.) Share your favorite bit of fatherly advice in the comments. Keep reading »
