Here’s one of those tried and true fashion rules (to which we can barely name exceptions): once you reach a certain status and name recognition as a model, you will fucking collaborate with someone. Whether it’s guest designing multiple collections for an established brand (Kate Moss), shoes (Gisele), jewelry (Heidi Klum), or swimsuits (Kate Upton): you have no choice. Basically, if you are paid to be photogenic and leggy, soon you will be paid to approve of designs conceived by some anonymous, beleaguered assistant. Maybe. More
Man, breaking up is horrible. Especially when you’re a teenager and it feels like the whole world is just imploding on top of you and you’re dying inside. I bet breaking up would be a lot easier if you have being an international supermodel to fall back on. Agyness Deyn is one such supermodel (they don’t feel feelings right?) and she has the sensitive singer-songwriter whisperings to underscore it. More
At the expensive of sounding like a complete bore: Nickelodeon’s Clarissa Darling > Hannah Montana and every other tween star that’s been churned out at Disney in the past, I don’t know, ten years? Clarissa was a smart, outspoken weirdo who dressed like a crazy person… in other words, an excellent hero for little girls. Let’s celebrate her gonzo style and remember quality children’s television.

We have all ran into our exes spontaneously on the street, looking like hell, walking away kicking ourselves for not breaking out the six inch pumps to grab groceries. Here’s a gallery for what to wear if you’re actually planning … More
Gwen Stefani’s outfits are admirably consistent, in that she always looks like herself. Thus, it’s hard to criticize even her weaker choices, because they still look like genuine reflections of her style. These days, she’s more into couture than belly shirts, but I still love ’90s Gwen. Here’s a few looks from the trio of No Doubt videos that made Tragic Kingdom so huge, “Just a Girl,” “Spiderwebs,” and “Don’t Speak.” More
Polka dots are always a nice way to add something eye-popping to a neutral wardrobe without moving into the terrifying, alien world of prints and colors. Also, I’m kind of preoccupied with finding the perfect silk polka dot blouse (like this one) and it’s nice when shopping guides can be 90% self-serving. Double also: polka dot Docs. More
The recent ridiculous fashions at the Kentucky Derby had me thinking about what one might wear to such an outdoor event without looking like a shameless cartoon character. This got me thinking about saddle shoes, a great casual style that’s perfect for an all-day outdoor event that requires a lot of milling about and drinking bourbon cocktails. The saddle shoe (not to be confused with the very similar “spectator” shoe) is a low-heeled oxford characterized by its distinctive “saddle” usually (but not necessarily) in a contrasting color. Saddle shoes are cool and–while scoping label 80%20′s designs this morning and sad to discover their excellent saddle wasn’t available anywhere–I set about putting together a shopping guide.
The ’90s were everywhere at Fall 2011 NYFW, with plaid shirts (tied at the waist, even), square necks and chunky black platforms. It seems only natural, then, that venerable workboot brand Dr. Martens (synonmous with both ’90s grunge and ’70s punk) has announced the launch of its clothing line. Prices range from about $50 to about $100 while the pieces–like the brand’s iconic boots–are inspired by utilitarian British wookwear. Think big plaids, boxy More

Jane Lane, a painter with bone dry wit and BFF to Daria Morgendorffer, has certainly been done as a style inspiration. Furthermore, we are certainly not above doing stuff that’s already been done. Lastly, Jane Lane is awesome. She’s pretty much the cool, deadpan friend in high school a lot of girls dreamed of having. She also has excellent style. And so… More
Empire Records is just a feast of a guilty pleasure, isn’t it? It was perfect for us ’90s kids who were too young to work in record stores but dreamed of how cool it would be–if we ever got that fantasy job selling CDs, we’d just crush on Oasis and listen to Better Than Ezra and the Gin Blossoms all day. Or so we thought at age 12. Anyway, Liv Tyler looked so pretty, Robin Tunney was so tortured, Ethan Embry sent so many teenage hearts aflutter and Brendan Sexton III was in it. But everything comes together in the end. More
I got my first pair of Dr. Martens in sixth grade when I went as grunge-era Courtney Love for Halloween and, once the trick-or-treating was over, I never really took them off. They’ve served me well at rock shows and on rainy days, they add urban warrior cool to stovepipes and look amazing with pretty, feminine dresses. More
Need somewhere to store all your computer files, but in a stylish way? Good news: Doc Martens has created their very own USB drive that is shaped like one of the iconic shoes. It’s a limited edition goodie in honor … More
