I went to see the amazing 3D version of Coraline last night, and I loved every minute of it!

Word on the street (and by street I mean Fashionista) is that Beth Ditto's line for the U.K. store Evans is coming out sooner than expected, maybe even March! I can't WAIT to see it.

xo, Alison. Ed. note. Whats tragic is that this brilliant artist passed ... Read More

So, I'm just curious. What kind of thoughts go through your head while your uterus is getting swabbed? ... Read More

Amnesty International is running a new ad campaign in the UK. Their posters are being displayed on the trains ('tubes' if you're across the pond) and their message is getting a lot of attention; 'RAPE IS CHEAPER THAN BULLETS'.
For a nonchalant passer-by, this poster might not be doing its job. Some folks have deemed the ad offensive, as can be expected for any signage with 'bullets' or 'rape' present. For others it won't provoke any more than a 'what the ... Read More
