Last night was the Vogue sponsored "Fashion's Night Out," and while I had my immense doubts about FNO stemming from last year's shit show (for a lack of a better phrase) and from the incredibly awkward name (c'mon now, an apostrophe on fashion? How is that easy to say?). I still decided to approach it with an open mind but with a large, large grain of salt. So, I planned my schedule and decided to see how successful this evening was going to be. Bear in mind, the ... Read More
For many of us it’s been some time since school was last in session, and we can’t help but wax nostalgic when September rolls around.  Lately, there is more to be missed from back-to-school season than afternoon recess, field trips and flavorless foods served with an ice cream scoop. I’m talking about the high quality education that has been lacking in our public school systems for the past few decades.  Rather than sitting idly by and ... Read More

MERMAID JEWELRY

BY Bette Bentley in Style File

When I was a little girl, my parents bribed me with the Little Mermaid on VHS as a materialistic means of getting me to stop biting my fingernail to the nubs.  I stopped. I watched.   I guess I'm going through another mermaid phase.  Growing my hair out.  Wearing flowy clothes.  ANYWAY, while in Houston visiting my family I stumbled upon an amazing up-and-coming jewelry designer - Christina Miller. Her pieces are incredible.  All ... Read More
Fashion week is upon us, and that means a lot of parties, and a lot of outfits! On of my favorite NYC vintage shops, Amarcord, is have a Fashion Night Out party this Friday, and I'll be one of the guest judges for their street style contest!

Saturday Night Live is one of those cultural phenomena that refuse to disappear. We will all be dead and gone before SNL goes off air. This fall marks the show’s 36th running year and the entire cast (minus Will Forte) will be returning on September 25 to kick-off the season with three consecutive shows. Hosting the premiere will be none other than funny gal, Amy Poehler. A recent alum, Amy left the show after eight years to pursue bigger and better things ... Read More

The Sleep Suit. Enough Said.

BY skye in General

It doesn't just have to be "good night" anymore…."good anytime" is more like it.  With Forrest Jessee's Sleep Suit you can fall asleep literally anywhere!  Forrest Jessee is an architect, artist, scientist and graphic designer....and apparently needed a different kind of sleep pattern to accommodate his busy schedule.  Jessee decided to practice Buckminster Fuller's method of Dymaxion Sleeping, which basically means that you only take four ...

Best-selling author Wendy Shanker opens her latest memoir, Are You My Guru? How Medicine, Meditation and Madonna Saved My Life (Penguin, September 2010), with a comparison of sick bodies. Her own--as a person living with a rare autoimmune disorder--and Madonna's--as a person who "could crush your head between her thighs while she's prancing around singing 'Holiday.'" From the first page she lets us know that Madonna provides "an example of unrelenting strength." ... Read More
Greetings! The end of August, in London, is actually quite chilly compared to the States. Like the true stereotype of London weather, practically my entire week there was marked with drizzly rain and overcast skies. However, I love to photograph on overcast days, so it was rather nice for me. My last day there, the clouds parted and there was no rain! I ran over to shoreditch (think williamsburg of london) to capture some london street style. Per usual, high res ... Read More
