thread for thought // fashion in literature →
Thread for Thought pulls together another nifty little piece about fashion in literature (for more great ones: a series of posts detailing the history of cross dressing/drag, the politics and evolution of mannequins.) I feel like I’ve (and half the internet, or at least half the internet I read) been beating the dead horse of Look Guys Fashion Is Relevant In A Lot of Ways And Is Like A Big...
I answered. Very random question: are apartments in Brooklyn expensive? This depends on a few things: - the conditions under which you are willing to live - where in brooklyn you are living - whether or not you want to share an apartment - how long you are willing to hunt for a good trade off of all these things - what your concept of ‘expensive’ is (are you comparing to manhattan...
and TODAY in Unequivocally Fascinating Saturday Posts, we are proud to present you with: Good Morning Midnight Laundry Day! Starring Woolite black (this shit is ESSENTIAL) and my bathtub, fueled by epic amounts of coffee and a supremely greasy egg-and-cheese-and-tomato sandwich from the Bagel Store, which I did not photograph but trust me, it was greasy and made of win. ...
You know, that whole “let’s dress these models up like some concept of punk and take pseudo-gritty photos and then pat ourselves on the back for being so damn EDGY” thing should be old and cliche and problematic by now, BUT I STILL ALWAYS KIND OF LIKE IT. Besides, now I want a cropped plaid boxy lil’ blazer like that. Goddamnit. More at Test.
Seems like my weeks before NYFW devolve into looking back all nostalgic-like on last season’s collections that are just hitting stores now or whatever. Or, in this case, forcing Jen Kao’s last collection of SCIFI GOTH WITCH SPACE PRINCESS AWESOMENESS onto y’all one MORE time (as if I didn’t rave enough after nearly passing out of ‘omg princess bride AND blade runner...

I’m sorry, HOW AWESOME IS THIS? Miss Gee FW2010 — basically this entire collection (well, at least all that 20’s glamour/layering/menswear/long skirts part, not so into the bodycon floor length floral sparkles) is made of so much win I don’t even know where to begin. I’m sure there’s some sort of cultural hegemony crap I ought to think about here...
IVY STYLE | the vassar girl and the ivy look →
I probably have plenty of thoughtful faux-analytic things to say about this (ZOMG CLASS RACE GENDER ETC), but I’m just going to let a bunch of other ex Vassar girls (who are probably going to hate me for this) going to town on my Facebook wall do the talking here, because IT’S FUNNER. Also, LOL.
So what if I’ve posted about Bruce Davidson before? It’s been a while since I cranked out a good old-weird-New-York post (though here’s an old favourite of those. &2, &3, et al) and these images will basically never stop seeming representative of this city to me, those sort of photos that look like some idealized notion of your city’s history and seem almost fake in...
INTIMACY AS TEXT | the new inquiry →
…the reviewer’s rhetoric echoes a familiar view of technology as a binary opposition, with human connection on one side and computers on the other….To my mind, the relocation of social life to the internet is less a signal of the domination of machines or the loss of human connection than the perfect argument against anyone who claims the internet is making us stupid….

sexual politics of vintage femininity
As the ever-lovely Caitlinmae (I’m going to embarass you and link to this too — dear internet, look how cute my friends are!!) sent to me — http://jezebel.com/5602749/do-men-find-vintage-sexy-and-do-we-care What do you think? thought this was interesting morning midnight fodder… especially since the author recognizes it’s a heteronormative concern and it would be...
