Our Picks: Top 5 Flea Markets In The Country

Those of us with a soft spot for nostalgia or a pirate’s-level enthusiasm for buried treasures know there are few greater joys than whiling away a Sunday at an overstuffed flea market. If it weren’t for these indoor and outdoor bazaars brimming with vintage finds, my sister and I would have a lot less to brag about. (Her most recent gem: a collection of 50s-era table lighters found at the Long Beach Antique and Collectibles Market. Mine: A faux-Victorian nightstand made in the 70s, scored at New York City’s Chelsea Flea Market.)

From the coast of California to the borough of Brooklyn, these are the best places to find your new favorite things. Read more… Keep reading »

A Few Of My Favorite Things: Rhiannon Of Liebemarlene Blog

Georgia-based Rhiannon runs the vintage-inspired blog Liebemarlene, where she waxes philosophic on her travels around the South, sells beautiful vintage wares, and takes stunning photos. “My blog is a vintage-based blog, but I really write about anything that inspires me, from new collections to editorials I like,” says Rhiannon. ” I probably like history as much as I like fashion, so I take a lot of day-trips to pretty or historic places in the south and then post about it on my blog.” Sounds pretty good to us. Check out Rhiannon’s favorite things after the jump! Keep reading »

Peep Show Pint Glasses — With Penises, Too!

Peep show glasses — mugs and glasses that have stripping models on the side — have been around since the 1940s. In 1941, a company called Meyercord created and patented the technology that allows the white clothes to disappear when moistened. Most of the time — like, 99 percent — the images were of sexy, scantily clad women, but we loooooove this ’70s mustachioed beefcake on the right. Have a tall, frosty glass of this guy, please.

Unlikely Style Inspiration: The Ghost Sisters From “The Shining”

A couple weeks ago, my brother and his girlfriend convinced me to watch “The Shining” with them. I was hesitant because I hate scary movies (I still have nightmares about the 15 minutes of “Scream” I watched accidentally in 1996), but they insisted it was a classic and I needed to see it in order to be a productive member of society. Unsurprisingly, the movie totally freaked me out. Surprisingly, when I wasn’t hiding my face in a couch pillow, I was being super inspired by the fashion, from Shelley Duvall’s chunky sweaters to Jack Nicholson’s slim-cut suits… Keep reading »

A Woman’s Lot In Life Is To Constantly Replenish Her Panties

Like every other woman alive, I have a wakeup routine that hasn’t changed for years. Silence my alarm. Put on my glasses. Refresh the “Mail” tab on my iPad. Slide slippers on my feet. Shuffle over to one of my dressers. Peer into my panty drawer. Toss aside the pink leopard print thong that screams “sexy” but rides uncomfortably up my butt. Ignore the too tight ruffly pink panties that squeeze me like a sausage. Hide the thick cotton, floral granny panties at the way bottom of the pile. Sigh audibly. Think to myself: “I need to buy more panties, again.” Keep reading »

Would You Wear: Feather Hair Extensions?

Way back in January, Julie wrote about the awesomeness of feather hair extensions. I’ve always thought they were cute, but wasn’t totally sold on them until I saw them in action at my friend Becca’s wedding. Becca’s sister was wearing a simple black bridesmaid’s dress and a few strands of striped feathers in her blond hair. The feathers added such a cool bohemian vibe to her outfit, and I’ve been scouring Etsy shops for a similar look ever since. So I was wondering: how do you guys feel about this trend? Would you wear feather extensions? [$22, Etsy] Keep reading »
