People love androgyny. Admit it, we love those girls who look just as good in suits as they do in dresses. You know who else loves androgyny? The industry; the fashion industry that is. When we think high fashion, I'm sure we can all expect a lady or two sashaying down the runway in something masculine, but, what about a guy? What happens when a man comes down the runway in the latest gown? The fashion world may be in oohs and ahhs and tears of gender-bending joy, ... Read More

For those of you who remember the day Frances Bean Cobain was born (like me), be prepared to feel a leeetle old.

I know Kurt and Courtney are her parents and all, but it still freaks me out a little how much she looks like both of them. A whisper of the past in the face of the future. And hot ... Read More

You know how some days you just don't want to get out of your bed? And you're like, ah, if only I could take my bed with me?

Like the Royal Wedding, the ONE PIECE is a big deal in the UK; with ... Read More

Now the fine t-shirt and print designers at Death Traitors have heard your pleas, and are releasing a super cute black varsity jacket that perfectly suits Death Traitors ... Read More
They look like the love children of antique dolls and woodland fairies.
They practically float instead of walk, with their wafting, floral print fabrics and gauzy layers, their vintage blouses and baby doll dresses, romantic lace paired with tights and/or a-line skirts, stiletto heels or ballet flats, and tiny trinkets.

When my friends from high school moved to the East Coast for college, they were most horrified by winter. "Why did people settle there?" My friend once asked when discussing New York. "It's uninhabitable!"
It's not that my hometown, San Francisco, is the tropical paradise people assume of a California locale. Perpetually autumn-temperature, SF experiences a winter rainy season and brief Indian summer and lots of low-lying fog. As a kid, my East Coast-born ... Read More
