The Pembroke Cowl in Charcoal, available for $115

In the Winter, you’re never fully dressed without a scarf. Ever since Rodarte made knitwear cool again, it is suffice to say that it is precisely that which has been on everybody’s mind. I recently stumbled upon Yokoo, a popular Etsy (a modern-day craft bazaar, for those unfamiliar) seller who makes covetable chunky knits in the form of scarves, hats, and even bows. Her prices range from $30-$150, making them perfect gifts for your upcoming holiday of choice. What could possibly be more fabulous than handmade knitwear for your loved ones?

Something We Can All Be Thankful For

November 28, 2008 § Leave a comment

15-year-old Kate Moss, Reppin’ the Indians/Native Americans

With Thanksgiving being today, I think we should all take the opportunity to remember what we are (or should be) thankful for. So it is without further ado that we present the things we are most thankful for.


  • This blog, and the person who writes it with me.
  • The world of fashion, which never ceases to inspire.
  • Readers, because they make writing much more important.
  • Christmas, because it’s the most genius thing ever:get people to buy you things even though you didn’t do anything.
  • The bad economy, because it gives people something to talk about. “YES, I am provocative.”
  • Oh that last one reminded me, 30 Rock, for being amazing.


  • My crazy family
  • Their cooking
  • Text messages (Can’t live without them!)
  • My fab partner in blogging
  • The few returning readers we get

Thank you everyone! Hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving!

The Circus Comes to Town

November 19, 2008 § Leave a comment


I think Britney herself said it best with “It’s been awhile.” Although it’s been only a few years since she last tore up the charts, her erratic behavior was better at selling tabloids than albums. Now that she’s really back this time, she’s got a solid album to prove it. In fact, you’ll be glad to know that lead single Womanizer is one of the lesser tracks in comparison. Womanizer feels flat when compared with the hyper, chantey feel of songs like the salacious If U Seek Amy (try saying it out loud, or rather in your head if there are people around.) Elsewhere, she succeeds with the confident Kill The Lights, cooing “is that money in your pocket, or you’re happy to see me?” in reference to her famed experiences with the paparazzi. Surprisingly, one of my favorite moments comes in the down-tempo techno track Unusual You. It’s gentle without being contrived, and still remains a standout. Speaking of standouts, there’s also the title track Circus, with a chorus sure to be on everyone’s lips in a matter of days; the introspective Blur where Britney admits she “can’t remember what I did last night;”the chaotic Mannequin, which is actually downright experimental for arguably the most mainstream artist in the world; and the bass-slapping Lace & Leather, which feels like a tongue in cheek take on a Prince/Janet Jackson sound-a-like. The duds? My Baby, although certainly sweet, is one of the more boring songs I’ve heard in a while and Out From Under tries too hard to be emotional. Otherwise, it’s a great album that I would definitely recommend as well as give the The Guide to Everything Fabulous stamp of approval. Circus hits stores December 2nd.

Won’t You Run And Tell Your Boyfriend

Just when you think everything possible has been done to denim, another trend sparks. Over the summer, Katie Holmes embraced the trend of boyfriend jeans, an idealized fit that emulates gender-bending in the jean department. Her insistence upon wearing them daily for what seemed like a month sparked a major discussion. But it wasn’t her who pioneered the trend. In fact, its emergence in fashion can probably traced back to Alexander Wang’s Spring 2008 show. It was that season that, in his runway debut, he sent Chanel Iman down the runway in a loose fit among a sea of skinny jeans. Those seemingly failed to take off, but it wasn’t long until the look was adapted into “peg-leg” with the ankles being cuffed to create that tapered silhouette that is currently all the rage. Now the trend is fully taking off, thanks in part to them being fully embraced by the fashionably inclined. But when we’re seeing drop crotch pants, loose fitting jeans, and pajamas on the runway; does this means that the lines between comfort and style are finally blurring?
