I'm so sick of reading about the distaste that some idiots had on Michelle Obama 's outfit on the night of her husband's historical victory. As I saw it, the modified version of the Narcisco Rodriguez's dress was showing off her confidence in not being pigeonholed into wearing those lame-ass, boring suit-dresses. We still have ways to go, but I think it's awesome that powerful women are getting closer to be being on the same playing field as men, but why do ... Read More

You've got to love Canadians; they are not letting the fact that they can't vote in tomorrow's election stop them from getting involved. The very talented Kingi Carpenter, author of the Bust favorite Silkscreen Now, has created this adorable Obama print dress. What better way to look smart and chic in that stuffy booth? It is also available on a skirt or hoodie, so you can snag this print even if you aren't the dress wearing type.Check them out at ... Read More

Meet Edith ,
She's handmade by our friends at Queen Bee Creations , from sturdy Re-Wool (recycled wool felt scraps left over from textile mills). This makes her biodegradable, renewable, and water resistant. What more could you ask for...in a bag?!
Edith's natural beauty is accentuated by a lovely sprout on her front side, making her the perfect Fall companion.
I think I have a crush.

Sew Mo's Alice Bag is so insanely perfect, I'm considering writing a song about it. I found it during one of my many frenzied hunts for the perfect oversized tote (I just can't get down with those jingly-jangly leather logo bags), and I seriously feel like I've stumbled on the Holy Grail here: Earth-friendly interfacing, lining and interior, with the perfect decorative buttons and hidden pockets galore. I lugged it with me on a recent San Francisco trip, and not ... Read More

Oh, the ladies of the FLDS. Call them what you will, but it's sort of difficult to ignore their place as the style icons of summer '08. Fashion savvy girls and guys spent the majority of that news cycle all but creaming over the perfectly coiffed hair and constructed sleeves, and I thought for sure Marc Jacobs would be the first to send some warped (and probably awesome) version of the image down a runway.
Turns out he's been beaten to the punch...by the FLDS ... Read More

Why did I just move to NYC? Portland, Oregon continuously surprises me as the place to be for hip and alternative design and music (Musicfest NW is going on there now). Portland-based company Queen Bee Creations just came out with this new line of bags made with sustainable fabrics. They also have some bags made from recycled materials. Everybody really is turning green these days, and I think that's glorious. -Maya the ... Read More

Lots of clothing brands have taken to sponsoring athletes to get their brand name out there, but Quiksilver's got a different take on the same idea.
