How It Ends

Well, dear readers, this has been fun. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve gone on full-blown online shopping marathons and purged our wallets clean of those pesky dollar bills and maxed out our credit cards. Hopefully, you’ve also learned of a few great songs and artists that you’ve downloaded onto your iPods and iPhones and, you […]

Wonderland Runway

Alice is one tough chick. Not only does she give a big “F-U” to the polite, aristocratic system she’s grown up in (think Tim Burton’s rendition), she falls down a looooong tunnel into some seriously messed up world where she ends up butting heads with this evil Red Queen who is pretty damn terrifying when […]

An American Horror Story

Hi, my name is Rachel and I’m addicted to “American Horror Story.” Cue: “Hi, Rachel!” Not only is AHS a great premise (season 1 and 2), but the characters, design and overall mise-en-scène make it seem so real. In “American Horror Story: Asylum,” the show wouldn’t be nearly as fantastic without the atmosphere the creators […]

Throwback Threads

So I’ve been on this Smiths kick lately, well, mostly I’ve just had “There is A Light That Never Goes Out” on perpetual repeat for the last couple of months. But that counts, right? Regardless, I was inspired by their alternative rock/pop sound. Oh, also Morrissey’s rad striped shirt. You probably know this track from […]

Dress for Atlantis

If you were unlucky enough to be affected by Hurricane Sandy this week, you learned how essential it is to dress for the weather. In Ohio we received heavy rain, wind and cold temperatures. While this is nothing compared to our friends on the east coast, it definitely brought about a change in wardrobe. But […]

Haute Halloween

Here in Athens, Ohio, things got a little crazy. If you were in town this Halloween weekend, you surely witnessed a lot of drunken debauchery, cops on horseback and the fact that you probably weren’t able to use your cell phone. I also bet you grabbed a buddy and NEVER LET THEM GO, lest you […]

F.A.S.H.I.O.N 9000

In the 1960s, there was a little thing called space travel and some regular ol’ dudes named Alan Shepard, John Glenn, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin. Then André Courrèges created this style called the “space-age” look, and it was all over. Fashion had moved to another planet, to another galaxy. While the style might not have […]

Gangsta Nancy Sinatra…?

Okay, guys! Enough with the winter blues attitudes! It’s fall, it’s beautiful, and we finally get to wear sweaters– so let’s get peppy. Break out the flower headbands! Zip up those blue jeans! We’re about to get all “Gangster Nancy Sinatra” up in here. So last year the world was introduced to a little ginger […]

Breakup Swag

Sometimes something will hit you and stay with you for a long time. It could be a band, a book, or a person, and it travels with you wherever you go– maybe for years, maybe even forever. It sits there in your pocket, idle but oppressive. At times it might bop around annoyingly in your […]

Killer Style

Last week, I wrote about fancy parties, sequins, feathers, and old-school glamor. While I really do love things that shimmer and shine, I also like a healthy dose of “edge” with my fashion. So I’ll be the first to say it: I like a girl who can look like a badass. Put on a great […]
