Monday, December 2, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: Esther Kim Creates Our Dream Emojis
As you’re well aware, today is Cyber Monday, which means we’re celebrating all-things digital—and in our case, this means Emojis. We’re constantly using these byte-sized (nerd joke!) icons to express how we feel via texts and emails, and, well, it’s time we got more.

Tuesday, November 26, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: The Art Of The Butt
There’s nothing quite like a gorgeous image of a behind—seriously! Butts can look downright adorable when they’re shot by some of our favorite photographers, and we’ve got proof. These sexy-but-classy shots of bums remind us that we need to pay a serious homage to the hiney.
Wednesday, November 6, 2013 Artsy Fartsy: Meet The Cult: Olivia Bee
Apparently it is possible to be downright adorable and totally badass at the exact same time—just look at our latest NYC Shoe Cult disciple Olivia Bee. At 19, the Portland-born photographer has already shot campaigns for Hermes, Nike, and Converse, and her work has appeared in the New York Times, Vice, and Numero, just to name a few. Olivia has been snapping photographs since she was 11, so we asked her to pick out her five favorite shots so far and share them with us right here on the blog!
