Trench Toast

Have you noticed how editors talk about personal style as though getting ready was a mathematical equation? We throw terms around like “cost per wear”, and “fashematics” i.e. an A-line skirt + knee-high boots = the Mod look. There’s also the faithful “top five” wardrobe essentials, a list to live and die by. Everyone has

The Clothing Coven Part Two

For most of us, New York in the summertime conjures up images of overcrowded subways, lost tourists, and the fear that the humidity may never go away. Somehow, the Clothing Coven girls have shown us a different side of New York, one full of Coney Island weekend trips and Sex Museum photo ops. Last week,

Five Music Videos We Are Obsessed With This Week

Even though MTV has been hijacked by teen moms and teen wolves, the art of the music video is not dead. Our favorite artists are still making them left and right; they’re just getting more creative with their execution (like Bleached, pictured above, who took the VHS cable access show concept and made it their

Lady DJ: Nelleke

DJ Nelleke is a bit of an endangered species: a rare bird of a DJ who still spins using all vinyl only (no computer programs or iPad magic, just the real deal, a hauled crate of records to every event). This isn’t the only thing that makes this NYC beauty special though. Aside from being

Mariachi band twerking, online dating while married, and supermarket wine tasting:  It might sound a little strange, but it all happens on Nicole Richie‘s new show, Candidly Nicole. The ex-Simple Life star is back with a comedic vengeance, serving up life lessons disguised as humor and doing it all in that perfect purple hair. If you

Fringe With Benefits

Wearing fringe is like walking through one of those beaded door curtains that your one weird aunt still has in her vacation home in the desert. Like that beaded curtain, fringe is multifunctional: slightly protective, kinda funky, and above all else, transformative. In just a few words, fringe is wearable entertainment. We’re suggesting you put

Yasi Salek @ Pitchfork Fest

I go to a lot of music festivals, partly because it’s my job, and partly because of my intense devotion to living in a state of suspended adolescence. Oh also I guess because I like music? Anyway as I mentioned in my previous music fest post, I’ve been to many, many different iterations, from dusty
