Friday Style Icon: Peg & Kelly Bundy Of Married…With Children

Friday Style Icon: Peg & Kelly Bundy Of Married...With Children

Married…With Children was a cool show because it aimed for ugly authenticity in a time of sitcoms about child geniuses and togetherness and bullshit. Married… With Children was all about oppressive workdays and jello salad and chainsmoking and not being sexually attracted to your spouse anymore and being an embittered shell of a person (and belly tops!). I watched the hell out of this show growing up (because it came on before or after The Simpsons) and it was great. Peg and Kelly’s outsized, tacky style both lend themselves to excellent Halloween costumes, too, so here we go! More »

Friday Style Icon: Melissa Joan Hart as Clarissa from Clarissa Explains It All

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.

Friday Style Icon: Thora Birch As Enid From Ghost World

Terry Zwigoff’s Ghost World (based on Daniel Clowes’ comic of the same name) follows two alienated teenage buddies, Rebecca and Enid, who’ve just graduated high school and drift around their small anonymous American town trying to figure out life stuff. …They don’t. Well, Rebecca (a teenage Scarlett Johansson) gets a job and begins taking on new responsibilities, which Enid resents and dyes her hair and then ends up just running away. But Enid is a pretty cool central character when you too are a self-centered, disaffected teenage girl. So, thanks Enid. Thank you and your many animal prints. More »

“Sextsy” Exposes The Seamy Underbelly Of Crafting

"Sextsy" Exposes The Seamy Underbelly Of Crafting

Did you know that there’s a website called “Sextsy” that’s dedicated to finding all the sexiest photos on Etsy? Now you do! (I’m not sure why “sext” should be a part of the name, but I’ll go with it.) Although its purported reason for existing is to “celebrate the beautiful women who continue to drive creativity in the realms of fashion and craft,” it is also a goldmine for ridiculous pictures on par with Sad Etsy Boyfriends. Here are some of my favorites. More »
