I love this organization, Boarding for Breast Cancer. They set up little workshops at various snowboarding and surfing events and even at the Vans Warped tour to teach women how to check their breasteses. I know times are tough, but if you happen to have some extra cash, they are having a fund raising event on Oct. 23rd in NYC with cocktails, hors d’oeuvers, art and silent auction to support the foundation.

   Apparently Katy Perry, famous for her popular (and controversial) songs ''Ur So Gay'' and ''I Kissed a Girl'', is now about to have her own doll made by Integrity Toys. The $50 doll has a gold minidress based off of Perry's outfit in the ''I Kissed a Girl'' music video and looks more like a weirdo knock-off retro Barbie than the actual teenybopper singer. Now you, too, can make Katy Perry kiss a girl, but don't plan on her and Skipper moving into ... Read More

Baby damn those jeans...

BY Team Intern in General |

that don't fit and give the world an unintentional, back-gap, peep show whenever you bend down. isAbelt is a clear, adjustable, virtually invisible belt that keeps those jeans in place and your waist streamlined, so you don't have to wear a regular-old, heavy, bulky belt. Since I like my belts to show, my personal fav is isAbelt Jr-Skull style complete with cute skulls and pink lips graphics. It's super fun, really comfortable, and fits up to a junior's size ...

Get Yourself Together

BY Mollie Wells in General |

Confession: I'm a serious pack-rat who is completely freaked out by disorganized clutter. I can handle, like, an artfully arranged stack of books, but stuff just sitting out willy-nilly, with no home? It slowly, quietly drives me insane. Which is problematic, see, because I'm constantly coming home with armloads of random crap that I refuse to throw away. Certainly I'm not alone in this. So because my living space is not that big and I really don't think 43 ... Read More
It's not news that women in Washington (particularly those truly on the world stage) are scrutinized for their clothing, but I'm a little confused by Robin Givhan's Washington Post story about Palin's so-called ordinary style. Givhan is known for her no-nonsense fashion criticism of the political elite--whether or not that's responsible or even necessary is up to you--but this one just seems like a redux. Givhan waxes aesthetic for several paragraphs about Palin's ... Read More
The Great Schlep from The Great Schlep on Vimeo. I love that our cover girl Sarah Silverman is involved in this campaign by JewsVote.org that is organizing a weekend where folks can go down to Florida and convince their grandparents (Zadie and Buppy) to vote Obama. She made this video for theGreatShlep.com and it's hilarious and hopefully effective! She's the pied piper of hipster Jews! Even if you're not Jewish, this seems like a good tactic to try on your ...
