I don’t think I heard my mom swear much until I was over twenty. I don’t know if it was her über-Midwestern upbringing, or if that would be too precious a stereotype to apply to a woman who also raised me on action movies (like explosions-action-movies), who owned and read Steven King’s entire oeuvre, who…

After a devastating breakup with her longtime boyfriend, Jackie plunged into a deep despair. “I was in a fog – a fog that wouldn’t lift,” said the 29-year old marketing manager.  There were times Jackie said she didn’t know if she was alive or dead, awake or asleep, coming or going.

’80s Shave Cuts Are Hot Again?

The thing about fashion comebacks is that they're always fleeting and transitory—after all, causing change is as easy as taking off your clothes. This is a good thing, for if we were forced to wear the same scrunchie and acid wash jeans for weeks at a time, we'd ensure the demise of civilized society…

Does Tommy Hilfiger’s Comeback Mark The Return Of Americana Fashions?

Maybe it's just my generation, but I don't ever remember a time when Tommy Hilfiger was considered cool. I was aware that in the not-too distant past, TH designs were pretty classy, but by the time I was style-aware, the brand had already become cheapened into patriotic logo fashions. Basically, no one was going…

Are We All Slowly Starting To Dress Like 8-Year-Olds?

Is fashion slowly regressing? Right now, it's all about the '90s floral patterns and Kelly Kapowski-esque Keds. We've even spotted a few skorts here and there.

MC Hammer And Vanilla Ice’s Comeback Show Canceled Again

Back in fourth grade, for whatever reason, I frequently would daydream in class about being a grownup with two kids—their father would be my crush of the year, Justin Coffee. In this fantasy, I'd sit them down by the CD player and reveal to them the amazing music I had listened to when I wa…

Hard Candy Nail Polish Set To Make Comeback

Remember Hard Candy? It was the nail polish brand of the late '90s, successfully marketing funky nail colors like green, silver and frosty blue. The must-have brand was a middle and high school status marker—if you wore Hard Candy (or better yet, had a collection of bottles) you told the world that you cared…

New Kids Back On The Block?

Quit playing games with my heart! Oh wait, wrong boy band, but still, are New Kids on the Block getting back together or what?! People says yes, Danny says no, but then he tells you to go to the newly created NKOTB.com to check for announcements. You tease! I’m sure you boys, who are…
