Vivienne Westwood Trashes NYC, Loves LA

“I don’t actually like New York … New York people are a bit stuck up and self important, and think that just the fact that they live in New York makes them better than anybody else. Sometimes there, you feel trapped by the concrete, and for me that means being trapped by the myth of Superman and American foreign policy and all these dreadful things that have done so much harm in the world. There’s just so much pressure there; it’s not nice.”

–Designer Vivienne Westwood speaks to W magazine about her decision to open her first stateside boutique in LA, rather than NYC. Now, Westwood has made some valid points about NYC (and its inhabitants), but I found some of her critiques to apply LA residents also, especially the part about self-importance. But I guess the beautiful Cali weather makes up for that. Of course, this isn’t really a battle of which city is better … I’d prefer LA to NYC right about now, too. [The Cut] Keep reading »

Do Not Want: Arden B.’s Stretch Denim Jumpsuit Nightmare

Let’s think about when it might be appropriate to wear this Arden B. stretch denim jumpsuit: If you’re role-playing a sexy car mechanic? Parachuting out of a ’70s prop plane? Halloween? If you’re not doing one of those three things, then really, you have no excuse. [$69, Arden B.] Keep reading »

Get Your Soda Jerk

I know that water’s really good for you, but seriously, I hate drinking straight water. As a Jew, I was raised not with glasses of water or milk at the dinner table, but with seltzer — delicious glasses of carbonated water — that is somehow the best thirst quencher known to man. I love seltzer, but I hate buying bottles of it at the store, because it seems foolish to cart around tubs of water, and also wasteful. Enter the Sodastream Jet Starter Kit, which allows you to make your own seltzer — or cola, or Italian sodas — at home. It may have a high initial price, but it’s worth its weight in refreshing carbonated water, for sure.
