Thursday, July 17, 2014 Trends: Collar ID
The 90s were good for a lot of questionable things (like AOL and Hit Clips and 98 Degrees), but the decade also put out a few shining stars. Topping the list is the tattoo choker (along with jellies, Lip Smackers, and mood rings, of course). If you didn’t stack three or four chokers on your neck at all times, you were basically irrelevant. And don’t even get us started on the matching wrist and ring versions of the choker. If you had those, you were the queen. Upon research of tattoo chokers, though, we found a whole world of throat wear (can we call it that? is that gross?) from throughout the decades. Scroll through for some serious inspo and try not to choke up.
Thursday, July 17, 2014 Right Now: 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.

From weird cartoons to Weird Al, here are five music videos we are currently obsessing over.
Wednesday, July 16, 2014 Guest Edit: The Clothing Coven Hits NYC
In the high school of life, Mallory Llewellyn and Tallulah Willis are the girls everyone else wants to be. They’re the ones who look impossibly cool in their off-kilter outfits. They are also the girls that come off super intimidating, but are actually friends with every kid in every clique, from the weirdos to the goths to the jocks to the cheerleaders: that’s just how they roll. At 20-years old, Mallory and Tallulah aren’t that far removed from high school, but they are still the girls that every other girl wants to be. In March of this year, the best friends with “the same taste but totally different style” launched The Clothing Coven (really cool Instagram found here), an online magazine that they intend to act as, in the words of Mallory, “pretty much a helm for every type of girl. It can be a place for the weirdo who doesn’t fit in, the pretty girl who has no friends because everyone is jealous, or the mom who wants to stay hip on what her kids are into.”
The Clothing Coven isn’t just a fashion blog: the site covers everything from style to music to photography to art to travel, all with a distinctly personal touch, like your two imaginary best friends are cluing you in as to what’s up in the world of cool.
Recently Tallulah and Mallory took a month-long trip to NYC and shared with us their favorite moments:
