Unexpected Style Inspiration: Rachel Maddow

Fashion inspiration can come from unexpected sources: a poem, an old picture of your great aunt, maybe a certain song about short skirts and long jackets. I once created an outfit based solely on the exquisite color combination found in my iced caramel macchiato.

Rachel Maddow has become one of these unexpected inspirations. I admire her immensely: She is a Rhodes scholar, an accomplished journalist, a gay rights advocate, an eloquent speaker, a lover of cocktails, and a rabble-rouser. She also “dresses like a first grader,” according to her website.

Maybe so, but I love her look. She rocks bold eyeglasses, blazers, baggy jeans, and sneakers. She hates to shop, but always looks comfortable and confident. Beneath her desk on “The Rachel Maddow Show,” hidden from the camera, she wears skater shoes with her pant suits. She dresses for herself, and in doing so, she’s created a style all her own.

Personal style comes from a genuine place, from wearing your own truth loud and proud. Rachel Maddow is a perfect example. Here are the key elements of her laid-back look.

Fall TV Guide: “Sister Wives,” The Real-Life “Big Love”


Last night, I had dinner over at my mom’s apartment with my brother and his girlfriend and we got to talking about reconsidering the legality (or illegality) of plural marriage, i.e. polygamy. Putting aside personal feelings on the idea of polygamy, what we ended up concluding was that the government shouldn’t consider marriage a religious institution at all, as it violates the notion of separation between church and state, and that marriage, if anything, needs to remain a legal union between two individuals — no more — so that the monetary benefits don’t reward those who marry multiple people for so-called religious reasons or otherwise.

So why am I blathering on about plural marriage anyway? Because last night was the series premiere of “Sister Wives,” the reality show about a man and his three (soon to be four!) wives and their flock of children living in Utah. And, for the most part, it was boring. Keep reading »

What We Can Learn From The Cosmo Man Summit

Last week marked an important date on the Cosmopolitan magazine calendar: The annual Man Summit — a time to explore how men really feel about themselves and the women in their lives. Because, apparently, Cosmo doesn’t pander to the needs, wants and thoughts of men enough, the Cosmo Man Summit surveyed around 1,500 guys on the serious issues pertaining to men. They then held a five-guy Man Summit panel — populated with psychologists and sociologists — to reflect on the findings.

“We’re asking so much more of men today. We want them to be great providers — but we also want them to get pedicures,” said Cosmo‘s Editor-in-Chief Kate White at last week’s summit. Really? We are? More wisdom from the world of Cosmo after the jump … Keep reading »

Mom Of 2 Robs Bank, Then Picks Up Her Kids At School

Erica Anderson is your average 37-year-old mom of two in Grants Pass, Oregon. Which is why it’s so surprising that last Monday she walked into a local bank and slipped the teller a note telling her to fill a bag with money. The note also told the teller to wait 15 minutes before calling the police, “or else two kids wouldn’t make it home from school.” Keep reading »
