Etsy Spotlight: 13 Delicate & Cheeky Gold Necklaces

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / March 28, 2015
I'm not a huge style rule follower, but one thing I always adhere to is that if I'm wearing big earrings, I can also wear bracelets, but a necklace would be too much going on. I've been on a big chunky gold hoop kick lately, so I haven't been wearing many necklaces, but I'm planning… More »

Thank Us Later: Glorious Eye Makeup Remover That Won’t Set Your Face On Fire

By: Claire Hannum / March 27, 2015
For years, I slept with my eyeliner and mascara on, knowing full well that this was not something functional grown-ups did and was probably terrible for my skin, but ignoring it nonetheless. Far worse than whatever invisible damage I was doing to my face was the morning-after makeup residue that took the shape of black spots on my pillowcase,… More »

Fran Lebowitz Cannot Take Men In Shorts Seriously, Is The Best

By: Robyn Pennacchia / March 25, 2015
It is no secret that, other than my own dear mother, my favorite person on earth is Fran Lebowitz. Throughout the years, since I first read her books as an aspiring curmudgeon in middle school, I have turned to her words for hope and inspiration. Specifically, the following quotes: "I understand, of course, that many… More »

Metalheads Troll H&M For Making Up Fake Metal Bands

By: Robyn Pennacchia / March 24, 2015
I am old enough to remember a time when it was considered practically sacrilegious to purchase band paraphernalia from a mall store. Like, unless you wanted people to think you were some kind of poseur, you got your shit from an actual concert you attended, a thrift store, a small independent store or as a hand-me-dow… More »

Wanderlust: Sometimes, You Just Got To Go With The Flow

By: Tiffanie Drayton / March 24, 2015
Last week, I wrote about knowing and accepting when it's time to move on. I've been getting that itch lately, telling me that it is time to leave the Big Island of Hawaii. I know that I don't really have any other choice but to scratch it and say "see ya later." Though, as nature… More »

Hot Topic’s New “Orphan Black” Collection Nails Sestra Style

By: Amelia McDonell-Parry / March 24, 2015
I have been mocking the hell out of Hot Topic since high school, when I frowned upon the mass market fakery of all their pseudo goth and punk aesthetic, but I gotta say, I'm kind of digging the retailer's new "Orphan Black"-inspired line. Whether you're into Sarah's leather jackets, Helena's grunge-y parkas or Cosima's nerdy… More »

Travel Porn: 12 Places In The U.S. To See Stunning Spring Flowers

By: Claire Hannum / March 23, 2015
Winter is still clinging to every last bit of life it can grasp here in New York, but spring is just around the corner, and in many parts of the U.S., it's already arrived! Am I the only one that feels like a walk through a path of bright-colored flowers is basically a free happy pill? To get a fix,… More »

Thank Us Later: An Immediate Cure For Ingrown Hairs, Cysts, Bad Zits And Inner Thigh Boils

By: Anonymous / March 23, 2015
An incredibly horrifying thing happened to me a while back. After shaving, I got an ingrown hair. Not normally that big a deal. But then--I think it got irritated while I was exercising or something--and it somehow, within a day and a half, turned into this nightmare, two inch boil on my inner thigh. It… More »

This Kickass Girls’ Clothing Line Breaks Down Gender Stereotypes

By: Claire Hannum / March 19, 2015
A few years ago, Seattle mom Jennifer Muhm's then-4-year-old daughter told her she wanted to be an astronaut for Halloween. Muhm and her daughter discovered quickly that the only astronaut costumes they could find were marketed to boys. Muhm's discouraged daughter told her mom that only boys could go to space and that she wanted… More »

Absolute Beginners: Gym Etiquette 101

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / March 19, 2015
After the first installment of Absolute Beginners was posted, I got a few really awesome suggestions for future posts. This one is from reader Cedra, who brought up the point that a lot of total fitness newbies are intimidated by the gym because they simply don’t know exactly how they’re supposed to act there. So… More »

Street Style Spotlight: 25 Ways To Wear A Cape

By: Claire Hannum / March 19, 2015
If there were such a thing as "cape season" (there is in my heart), it would probably be fall, but early spring's transitional temperatures are just as perfect for breaking out your favorite underrated shoulder-warmer. If you don't have one, get one! Trust. You won't regret it. Click through for some inspiration on how to wear… More »

All The Bicycle-Related Knowledge I Have, In Q&A Form

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / March 18, 2015
It was 70 degrees out yesterday in Chicago. Seventy, people! That means, of course, that I’ve been riding my bike for the last few weeks, because really, once you hit about 35 it’s pretty safe to bike. That being said, I know so many people who are afraid either to use their bicycle as their… More »

10 Great Chicago Street Artists, To Demonstrate That Street Art Isn’t Just Banksy

By: Rebecca Vipond Brink / March 16, 2015
You know who I’m really bored with? BANKSY. It’s not that he’s done anything wrong, or objectionable, or boring; it's not that he hasn’t maintained a high quality of work; it’s that whenever I tell someone I photograph street art, they say, “Oh! Like Banksy?” And the discretion it takes for me not to… More »

How To Be Brave When You’d Rather Hide Under The Covers

By: Claire Hannum / March 16, 2015
A path toward bravery sounds like some abstract "journey" accompanied by stock photos of women atop mountains in yoga pants and heroes sparring with dragons, but in real life, it usually plays out on a much smaller scale. Bravery's what you need when you're nervous to ask for a raise or sign up for a new activity… More »

Cheapskate Style: Fashion Tape And Instant Hem Tape Are The Exact Same Thing

By: Robyn Pennacchia / March 16, 2015
I am a notoriously cheap person. To the point where it is actually somewhat embarrassing, and I am actually really working on getting my face to not do that thing it does when a glass of wine with barely anything in it costs more than a giant bottle of Yellow Tail. Or make jokes about how… More »
