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? Keep reading »
With Kate and William‘s modern wedding and all, it may be easy to forget that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is set to become THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND! Insane. And with such a looming title ahead of her, comes, well, looming titles for other people. Like her sister, Pippa Middleton.
The world is still squeezing every last opulent drop of Royal Wedding juice out of the fruit that bore it (Wills and Kate). And because of this, we’re bound to be left with a watery — but delicious — slushy of rumors and truths. Some are easy to verify. Did Kate just go grocery shopping? Yes. Did she look amazing doing so? Hell yes! Has she really never been to the U.S. before? Nope. And is Pippa, her younger sister, set to become her Lady in Waiting? Please, let’s hope not!

God, I was so on trend in 8th grade. Cat-eye sunglasses were my thing. In the years since, I’ve moved on to big glamour girl shades, Ray-Ban wayfarer knockoffs, and aviators a la Carrie on “Sex and the City,” sure that my beloved cat-eyes would never make a comeback. But they have! Cat-eye shades are big for spring and summer — here are 12 pairs all under $25!
If I learned anything from Bon Jovi in the ’80s it was that an object’s slipperiness had a direct correlation with that same object’s relative wetness. But more importantly, I learned that we should never say goodbye.
However, following through with such a sentiment — never say goodbye — is much more difficult than scrawling it across your bulging crotch on an 8-by-10 -inch glossy for a hysterical groupie.

“To be a strong woman, to be a fierce woman, to be a true woman, to be a leader, to be truly powerful, you have to get to place where you can tolerate people not liking you. And know that when you actually do that, you have to fall back on your own moral imperative in your own moral trunk and say, ‘I don’t care, this is what I believe. This is who I am.’”
– Eve Ensler in the Logo documentary “Beautiful Daughters”, which is about a group of women putting on the first all-transgender production of “The Vagina Monologues.” I stayed up too late watching this movie last night and I can’t stop thinking about this statement. As women, we are socialized to care what others — our friends, our family, our lovers — think of us, so much so that we often lose focus on ourselves. To be powerful, we need to harness our energy and focus it on the positive. When it comes down to it, caring too much what others think of us is not a powerful or creative act. It’s a waste of our precious energy. I needed to be reminded of that. So thank you, Eve. Keep reading »
