Filthy ♥ Lovers

If roses were red and violets could be blue, I’d take us away to a place just for two. We’d move to a fortress where we’d run and play. You’d be mine and I’d be yours ’til our dying day. With Filthy Rebena you’ll always be covered, ’cause vintage clothing is made for lovers. ♥  Female Model […]

Street Style Icon

Here’s the thing about street style: For all the inspiration it serves and the little styling ideas it gives rise to, it’s a fantasy — or at least 99.99% of it is. Because of borrowed pre-season clothing and car services that make it possible for people to wear shoes they can’t actually walk in (or […]

Disney Heels

You probably already know that Cinderella wore glass slippers to that big dance, but what kind of footwear were the other Disney ladies rocking? Artists Griz and Norm Lemay set out to answer that question with these high fashion-inspired illustrations posted on their Instagram page. These shoes are are to die for, and they must be magic too, […]

Flora Sportswear

As part of a recent series of embroideries, artist James Merry softened the bold logos of sportswear companies by adding stitched flora to vintage clothing. For instance a glacier flower and moss grow from an old Nike sweatshirt, and a FILA logo is topped by a mushroom cap. Merry is a longtime collaborator with Björk […]

Tying Techniques

Every fashion season ushers in a new It Accessory.  This fall designers have brought a surprisingly retro accessory to take the “it” title.  Scarves!  From skinny ’70s styles seen at Chloé, to the sweet chiffon bow styles at Gucci, or Burberry’s blanket scarves, there’s a huge range of styles to choose from and lots of […]

Half Bun

Half up, half down, half intentional, half careless, half effortless, half messy . . . half bun.   Word on the street is that this half bun trend has been coined, “The Hun”. And the real beauty of this bang on trend look is how stinkin’ easy it is to do! Seriously, anyone can nail […]

The Sukajan

You’ve come a long way, baby. From humble souvenir to runway sensation, the sukajan has enjoyed quite the ascent. This letterman-style embroidered bomber, often sumptuously decked out in tigers, koi, dragons, and cherry blossoms, has its origins in WWII, when troops who had served in Asia wanted a memento of their time overseas. They’ve since […]

Feminist Fashion

When we talk about feminism, or, more accurately, the antithesis of feminism, we often bring up the ’50s housewife and/or pinup girl fashion. We envision a woman who wore beautiful dresses and heels every day while milling around the house, dusting, sweeping, and baking a picture-perfect Betty Crocker devil’s food cake for the sock hop. […]

Eclectic Feeling

With summer on the horizon, we’re all looking to change up our look. If you’ve been paying attention to the current shift toward individual, eclectic style (thanks in part to Alessandro Michele’s AMAZING Gucci debut) your wish list probably includes a pussy-bow blouse, mismatched prints and perhaps a quirky beret. But if all that sounds a […]
