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
Well, the postal service stopped delivering mail on Sundays. I guess, since postmen are like elves with boundless work ethic, the postal service had to find a way to fill that time. So, your postman is now a clothing designer. Really. More
Look, I helped you with your winter coat problems, now you must help me. More
Surprisingly enough, this photo is not of Lindsay Lohan. More
It’s pretty hard to believe we’ve reached the last day of NYFW and it’s been a whole week since we checked out the Richard Chai show at Lincoln Center. Although we did a review (in our own twisted, free-associating way) of the collection, we’ve yet to share our favorite look. More
Here I am at the first day of NYFW in a rain coat with an umbrella… where it’s a sunny 76°F. No matter, thanks to Weather.com and its web of deceit, I’m in an appropriately gloomy (and sweaty!) mood to select some Fall jacket inspiration. More
There’s this weird dichotomy that comes with being a vegan who’s into punk rock. On the one hand, you just want to SMASH EVERYTHING. On the other, your heart melts into nothing whenever you see a small, furry animal. Earth Crisis fans have been living this paradox for years. Now, fans of fauxhemian fast fashion can, too (sort of) with Free People’s line of fake leather clothing, for which they just released a lookbook featuring their own employees. No animals were harmed in the making of these items, and, as an added bonus, they are cheaper than real leather. Win-win. But do these clothes look as cool as real leather? You be the judge. More
You know that episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation where it turns out that Tasha Yar, who died in the first season, had a half-Romulan daughter named Sela due to some fancy footwork involving time travel? You don’t?? Watch it. Right now. I’ll wait, it’s cool.
Ok. Now: didn’t Denise Crosby look amazing in that Romulan military jacket?!?! Don’t you want to copy her style? The answer is yes, she did. And yes, you do. And I will help you with a few suggestions that might work here on Earth. More
Hey! It’s finally not so cold that you have to dress like Nanook of the North all the time. Maybe it’s time to doff that puffy parka and transition into something pre-spring (it’s a real season. It’s a real season I made up. It’s the next 30 days) More
I learned the origins of the tuxedo!
Decent outerwear for under $100 is hard to find, but it’s freezing, so that’s what I’m thinking about. In any event, one of those evergreen trends that people say you have to acknowledge (every fall, without fail) is the camel coat. It’s not so much a trend as a classic: versatile, tasteful, goes with everything, chic, basically all the stuff you want and need in a piece. This super More
Jay-Z’s long awaited memoir, Decoded, is coming out tomorrow. To celebrate, Gucci has created a custom book jacket – as in, a jacket with sections from the book printed inside it – as a gift to Hova. More
As the last of our jorts and bikinis are safely put away in storage for the season, it’s time to think about coats. Not only that, it’s time to think about finding the coat no one else has. Don’t think a thousand other women in the city haven’t considered that black J.Crew trench, or the H&M pea coat with anchors on the buttons. They can keep their dime-a-dozen outerwear (and possible bedbugs) — we’d much rather dust off our Paypal accounts and find something unique on eBay. And so, we present some of the best coats for this season, courtesy of our favorite online marketplace. More
All of the Lust Objects I’ve written have primarily reflected my style; i.e. somber friendless goth kid from the future who really admires Keith Richards (or at least, that’s how I want to dress). Consequently, today I was thinking I need to branch out, get a little Italian sex and glamour in my Lust Object life. But surprise! In order to look sexy and glamorous you apparently More
