As regular readers of my blog know, I am a fashion expert. I also attend more concerts than anybody I know. (Full disclosure: Except for this fucking guy.) And so I thought who better than me to weigh in on Fabsugar’s recent post, 10 Rad Pieces to Get Concert-Cool This Spring? Are the […]
Recent Events Roundup: While you were reading about Japan and Libya and Syria, I was reading about fashion.
As some of you know, I’ve given myself until my birthday to continue sucking as a human being. Then I’m going to make some changes! Just you wait: I expect to be a brand new and really pretty fucking amazing person by around April 15th. Until then, though, I’m going […]
Recent Events Roundup: Let’s cover a bunch of stuff I haven’t had time lately to address specifically, shall we?
Work has let up a bit, but not enough for me to read enough to write about anything properly, so I’ve mostly resorted to Twitter as my outlet for every fucking thing that’s crossed my mind over the last few weeks. (I’m @imsiobhan. Follow me!) Some of it is worthy […]
Barneys Names New Creative Director, Promotes Simon Doonan (via Racked NY) I have been living in quiet fear for the last two months. No, I’m not talking about bedbugs again. I’m talking about the executive shake-up at Barneys. In late November, new CEO Mark Lee ousted a pair of long-term […]
So, look. Anyone who even just kind of knows me a teeny, tiny little bit knows that I am *totally* not one of these hypocritical assholes who will climb atop my high horse and toss down snotty platitudes about how, you know, whatever: “There are people starving in Africa, yet […]
Nutria: If you can’t beat ‘em, wear ‘em! (The Brooklyn Paper) Moral conundrum: At what point is an animal so disgusting that our niggling concerns about animal cruelty fall by the wayside, and we say, “Kill it! Skin it! Eat it! Wear it!” Take, for example, the cockroach. It’s a […]
- Earlier this week, I discussed what should have been a happy intersection of music and fashion. Unfortunately, when we arrived to the intersection, we found a gory collision of bedbugs and extortionist prices. But have no fear, for we have come upon a traffic circle, with offshoots leading not […]
Should Fatties Get A Room? (Even on TV?) (Marieclaire Online) This one’ll be a quickie because there’s nothing left for me to say that hasn’t already been said by others. (Seriously. Check out the article. There are 83 pages of comments.) But in case you somehow managed to miss it, […]
Scout Vintage Prefers Motley Crue Over the Ramones (Racked NY) If ever there were a person who could get away with wearing a Motley Crue t-shirt in a manner that’s neither ironic nor annoying and actually almost sort of appropriate, I tend to think I’m her. For starters, I actually […]
7 For All Mankind, Eddie Bauer Jeans Meet Their Ends at Gap (Racked NY) Lost in the firestorm over the Gap’s ultimately unsuccessful attempt to revamp its image through 1980s graphic design is news that the store apparently has been collecting people’s old, worn-out jeans so the denim can be […]
Perfume Protest: Teens Storm “Toxic” Abercrombie & Fitch (TIME NewsFeed) Let’s review: First, there’s company owner Mike Jeffries. His colossal douchiness rivals the masters (i.e., Dov Charney and Christian Audigier), and while our collective ire appears to have shifted to American Apparel (perhaps correctly, given the company’s illegal, beauty-based employment […]
