Monday, January 13, 2014 Guest Edit: Steak At Agenda Long Beach
Anyone who’s anyone was at Long Beach Agenda this week. JK, it’s pretty much just my friends, industry peers, and some hot blogger chicks who are still nursing their hangovers, but whatever—they’re everyone to me and this post. If you’re unfamiliar with Agenda, it’s best explained as an invite and industry-only trade show where brands come to showcase what they’ll be releasing to the public over the next year. Attendees range from press outlets to big box buyers who shop for new brands and find out about upcoming drops and trends. If you put the business stuff aside, you’ll see a bunch of young movers and shakers in town for a few nights catching up, trying to forget the 13-hour florescent-lit work day with a few beers and then waiting outside a hushed-up venue in the wee hours of the morning to catch some secret show the event has lined up. Agenda is awesome before you get there, grueling during the daylight hours, and awesome again by the time you leave.
Thursday, December 12, 2013 Guest Edit: Steaktooth Hangs With Remy Fox
I found Remy Fox online a month or so before I hit her up to come over to my house—that’s how Millennial friendships are born these days. I liked her based on the fact that she has a big butt with a small frame, nice skin and a bad attitude, which all take center stage on her Instagram page. Remy Fox is cool. She’s been dancing since before grade school taking classes in Russian ballet, modern ballet, modern dance, pointe, hip hop and tap. Now, Remy’s professional dance career has taken a turn from classic training to dancing on-stage with rapper, Lil Debbie. Basically, Remy twerks for a living.

In the online world, it’s hard to distinguish between what is just enough and what is too far. Terms like “thinspiration” may have been born from the innocent phrases like “bikini ready,” but now these words are tied to much darker subjects—like pro-ana sites. It is for that reason alone many health and fitness bloggers have caught flack for promoting their body images, although likely to be achieved through a positive and healthy lifestyle. Now, the images end up triggering as often as often as they inspire.
Monday, November 25, 2013 Guest Edit: Lunches: With Mae Whitman And Rachel Antonoff
I want to introduce this new thing I’m doing for the blog, except it’s nothing special at all. I’m just eating with my friends and that seems totally normal, but these days we’re Instagramming snacks with 3 ingredients like we’re trying to make it on Top Chef, so this just seemed like the next (techno)logical step. Why? Because my friends are blog worthy, and they’re a lot cooler than I am. I mean, I’m totally partial because these happen to be some of my favorite humans but, hell, they’re just the best. I promise the rest of these won’t have a long drawn-out intro, but I just wanted to lay the framework. They pick the restaurant, and I pick the topic. Pretty easy, right? OK, cool. So without further ado, I present the first edition of Lunches: Rachel Antonoff and Mae Whitman. The topics: ratchet shit and splurges.
Wednesday, November 20, 2013 Guest Edit: Ingrid Kesa Hangs With Laura Bannister
Laura Bannister and I first met at university. Back then I didn’t know much about her, except for the fact that she had the most fun clothes ever. She’d arrive at lectures wearing fur, fringe and fluro—it’s hardly a surprise that I found it difficult to concentrate in class. Since then, we’ve become pretty good pals (our first significant bonding session involved vodka and dancing like orchestral conductors), and I can confidently say that Laura is one of the greatest humans you’ll meet. At just 24, Laura has already collected a lifetime’s worth of Adidas—oh, and she started her own magazine called BRACE, which she co-edits from Sydney with her BFF Rosie Dalton, who is based in New York. So, we decided to play dress up one summer afternoon in Sydney’s secret gardens and talk all-things fashion.
