fashion week block party

BY Laurie in General |

It's fashion week in NY, and that means tons of parties and shows. Did your Marc Jacobs invitation get lost in the mail?

Dark Shadows redux- yeah!

BY Laurie in General |

I'm sooo excited for the Tim Burton version of one of our favorite creepy tv shows, Dark Shadows. The OG vampire, Barnabas Collins, will be played by none other than Johnny Depp, who has officially become the go to guy for portraying magical, spooky weirdo's. But who will play Victoria Winters?
