There are a lot of beautiful, poetic greeting cards out there, a lot of cards with pastel paintings of roses and italicized sentiments. And then there’s this card. And this card is awesome. [$4, Near Modern Disaster] Keep reading »
Mena Suvari wore Theory’s Sequined Silk Dress for a night of partying with her husband, Simone Sestito, at Trousdale Nightclub in West Hollywood over the weekend. I appreciate her combination of casual pieces, like the tote bag and suede pumps, with the dressier items–her sequined dress and tuxedo jacket. But since most people aren’t in the market for a $595 dress, I found a less expensive one to wear instead. Find out how to get a similar look as Mena’s for your next special night out. Keep reading »
NPR is a national producer of radio programming that dorks (well, hip dorks) like to proclaim their love for because they think it makes them look smart and cool. And maybe it does.
True NPR fanatics may own apparel or merchandise purchased directly from the organization as a sign of real devotion. We’re sure they’d be offended to see that now Urban Outfitters is selling their own version of an NPR shirt, officially outing the station as a hipster marker. So will all those people who are hipsters but say they aren’t now think twice about professing their love for public radio? [Urban Outfitters] Keep reading »
I saw “Jackass 3-D” with my brother over the weekend. When I wasn’t laughing, shielding my eyes, or committing all of my energy to not vomiting up my Junior Mints (maybe by the 5th or 6th “Jackass” movie I’ll learn that bringing snacks is not the best idea), I was admiring Johnny Knoxville’s wardrobe. Say what you want about his penchant for poop jokes, this man has great taste in vintage T-shirts. And I mean, I think it says a lot about someone’s personal style when you are watching them get gored by a bull on a 40-foot screen and can’t help but think, “Those are some nice trousers.” After the jump, some Knoxville-inspired items perfect for driving a jet ski over a cliff or, like, hanging out with your friends this weekend.

It’s a feud that has burned for decades in rap songs and friendly debates and Food Network specials: East Coast vs. West Coast. There are undeniable differences between the two regions, but what about the East Coast vs. West Coast aesthetic? Just how different are the fashion choices of the two coasts?
I grew up in Oregon, land of Nike sneakers and performance fleece. We have a growing indie fashion scene and tons of cool creative types, but “casual” is and probably always will be the name of the game. To this day whenever I see a man wearing a suit I assume he is a Mormon missionary. Keep reading »
Emma Watson has already exercised her fashion design muscle—the “Harry Potter” star debuted her skills with a collection for the fair trade clothing company People Tree. It was this work that attracted designer Alberta Ferretti to Watson, and Ferretti has apparently now enlisted the young actress to create a line with her. Although Ferretti is high-fashion, Watson is still putting an emphasis on do-gooding. She says, “I will put it out there that I will work for anyone for free if they are prepared to make their clothing fair trade organic.” So far details are scant: We do know that the range will be inspired by Jane Birkin, boho ’60s songstress and sexy wife to French crooner Serge Gainsbourg. We already worship Birkin as a style icon, so Watson has clearly made a good choice. Can’t wait for Emma’s collection? Put together your own look with these Birkin-inspired pieces, after the jump!
