Look. I don’t really object to fur in a sincere way. I think it looks fantastic. The other day I was walking into a dive bar and saw a woman wearing a mink coat walking out, and I wanted to become Fellini so I could make a movie featuring such a scene. But I didn’t. Maybe you have a better shot at that than I do, if you are someone who knows how to work a basic video camera. The only sadness I felt upon seeing such a thing was sadness that I was not a film director.
Suffice to say, I’m really not opposed to fur. At all. But I still don’t feel quite entirely right about wearing it.
However, when I mention this, a lot of people say “but you eat meat!” I do. I eat a whole ton of meat, pretty un-apologetically. I can debate the best steakhouse in Manhattan with you for a surprisingly long length of time. And yet… More
Jessica Alba is an overall unobtrusive star, both on and off the red carpet, but this was not the case for the past week. Several ill-fitting or oversize garments along with a couple weird bottoms are making me wonder what issues (I daresay Albatrosses?) are going down in the style sect of her brain that are making her make such peculiar choices.

Look, I helped you with your winter coat problems, now you must help me. More
I am going to wrap you up and keep you all cozy this winter. It will be like I am cradling you in my arms as you brave the elements, but not that weird. (Additionally, I believe it would cost at least $500 for me to function as your human coat). More
It has recently come to my attention that I love capes. It might be my love of retro fashions, my previously discussed latent Gothic tendencies, or the fact that it’s currently en vogue to dress like you know how to put spells on people, but I think the right cape can look pretty cool on anyone willing to take a small risk. Plus, it’s one of those rare trends that’s also functional…assuming your cape has arm holes, anyway. But which cape should you buy, and what should you wear it with? As easy as it would be to just say “all of them” and “everything,” here are 11 concrete suggestions to get the swooshy cape party started. More
The more politically radical I get, the less I care who wins this stupid presidential election. It’s all a sham, dude! Can’t you see? Then I see Barack Obama talking about stuff on television, and the man’s charm is like kryptonite all over again. More
All right, everyone: it’s really cold. Office talk has turned from sunscreen and soothing mosquito bites to warding off dry skin and scarf-tying techniques (we’re not saving the world here). Anyway, all of us seem to be in the market for a cool, stylish and–most important!–warm winter coat. Here’s 20. More

Some people say that even if a relationship ends, you’ve still gained something from it: a valuable lesson. We say, yes, we have gained something from it: a winter wardrobe. More
Once upon a time, long before many of you, dear readers, were born, I was a drone at a very large, multinational corporation. More
Maybe it’s because superheros don’t exist in your world. Maybe it’s because they DO exist, but you need something to help you stand out from the caped masses. Whatever the reason, a cape won’t fly for you, so you need something else. Something long. Something mysterious. Something like… Eureka! You’ve got it: A coat! A super long awesome coat! More
Lindsay Lohan reportedly stole a $2,500 necklace from a Venice jewelry store. We’d say we’re shocked, but, umm, Lindsay Lohan does this stuff all the time. I don’t know if anyone else has noticed this, but in the past five or six years, Lindsay Lohan has morphed from an actress into a professional jewel thief. More
