In keeping with today's themes of pussy power and fashion, I'd like to introduce you to a model who is making his mark on Etsy-- tiny paw prints, to be exact. Toki Nantucket is the whiskered face of CatAtelier, an Etsy shop offering "hats, accessories, and clothing for your fashion-forward feline...by a detail-oriented perfectionist cat-lover." I'm on the fence about pet accessories and have never personally dabbled in cat clothes (because my cat couldn't sit ... Read More
Until yesterday, I didn't know that camel toe was a problem that you needed a product to solve, but if you've been wondering how to stop your clothes from displaying your crotch crack, the Smoothgroove is here! Fashionista is reporting---with an understandable tinge of disbelief---that the front-wedgie-eliminating wonder (created by a woman named Susan Laurie) is finally available for purchase. SmoothGroove is like a sports cup that covers the vulva to make ... Read More
I love AbFab in a "naming-my-future-daughter-Saffron" kind of way. The British sitcom about two fashion-obsessed middle-aged career women is freakin' hilarious and perfectly acted by Jennifer Saunder (Edina)---who also created the show--- and Joanna Lumley (Patsy).
So it was absolutely awesome to see that, in honor of their return to TV this year, the fabulous and funny champagne-guzzling, fashion-worshipping Brits are making a splash as the cover girls for ... Read More
I have kind of a weird relationship with makeup. As a kid I hated it because my mom made me an enabler to her Macy’s makeup counter addiction: I’d fidget for what seemed like hours while a woman in a white lab coat paid what sounded like empty compliments to my mother’s skin as she applied "eyebrow gel" or something equally unnecessary-seeming. I remained completely disinterested in wearing it myself until two years ago, when I discovered the ... Read More

At 26 years-old, I’m not ashamed to say that teenager Tavi Gevinson might be my hero. She's been running her own blog, Style Rookie, since she was 11, and in September she started Rookie, an online magazine that tries to make up for the loss of Sassy oh so many years ago—way back in 1996 to be exact, the same year Ms. Gevinson was born. She’s had her own New Yorker profile and probably has Miranda July on speed dial, so to hear that The ... Read More
To all NYC fashionista BUST-ies:DVF, at 260 Fifth Avenue, is having a sample sale. Though I sometimes have a problem with sample sales, since they're not usually inclusive of all body types, I *do* like the idea of being somewhat able to afford well-made digs from a rad designer at more reasonable prices. I use the word "reasonable" lightly.
For those of you wondering who and what DVF is, they're the initials of the legendary fashion designer Diane von ... Read More

I know how it is--every year, December flies by, and the calendar creeps closer and closer to Dec. 25th. Your palms sweat, and you get nauseated with anxiety, wondering “WHAT am I going to get for Molly for Christmas”? Don’t freak, because I’m here to help. This year, instead of the pony you would normally buy me, please head directly to the Curator website, and purchase these Burt and Dolly portrait t-shirts.
The toughest part of owning ... Read More

Obviously it’s Veteran’s Day, but did you know it’s also National Corduroy Day? Well it is. I mean how can you not take advantage of such a momentous occasion as 11|11|11, which as corduroy enthusiasts realized a few years back, looks a lot like the fabric’s striped pattern.
The golden age of corduroy was in the 1970s, but the holiday originated in 2005, when The Corduroy Appreciation Club (a semi-serious club for those who really ... Read More
