Tumblr Tuesday: Rap names + blanket forts

I'm not sure if Michelle Harper's outfit is a dress over harem pants or a jumpsuit, but whatever it is, I NEED IT; The Grand Taxonomy of Rap Names will either increase your understanding of hip-hop culture or confuse the heck out of you, but it's totally worth it either way; I swear I've wanted an upstairs-to-downstairs slide in my house since I was 8--see mom, it is possible; loving this brightly colored,...

Breaking up is (not) hard to do

As much as I love menswear, I can count on one hand the number of times I've worn a suit--as in a blazer and matching bottoms meant to be worn together. I'll take my separates separately, thank you.I bought this Far East-inspired suit from a thrift store a while ago, and while the skirt got some play after I altered it, the jacket hung around, unworn for quite some time. I...

Minimal.

I was never into the whole minimalism thing, not even in the '90s when it was being touted by fashion magazines as the Most Revolutionary Thing Ever. I'll take my fashion with over-the-top Versace prints and glamazon supermodels, thankyouverymuch.But when I saw this dress hanging in the back of the closet (which I completely forgot I got at H&M, like, a month ago. How sad is that?) I had the urge...

Tumblr Tuesday: Sinister type and that dude I want to dress like

I collect a lot of (mostly visual) inspiration on my Tumblr--pictures of fashion, graphic design, art, interiors, the occasional sarcastic/intellectual quote, and various other bits and pieces I'd like to remember. I'd also like to share those things with you! Pencils can be romantic; fruity, summery art; yet another beautiful all-black spread from Italian Vogue (perhaps some day black models will be integrated into multiple! non-themed! multiracial! spreads and it...

That green gentlewoman

Remember that vintage mandarin jacket from the 4th Street Boutique? Yeh, I totally copped that, thanks to the generosity of fellow volunteer Susi. Not only is it chic, it's cozy as all get out and I wore it pretty much alllll weekend. With everything. Including jammies.Vintage jacket; thrifted belt and blouse; BDG jeans; Sigerson Morrison boots; old purse from street vendorI also made a point to get out from in front of my computer (which...

Quite a few dubloons

It's quite sad that a good 80% of my appreciation for art, film, and culture in general always comes back to "Yeah, but what are they wearing?" Having said that, looking at the works of artists like Gainsborough and van Dyck makes me want to dress like a 17th century Lord Sir Duke Marquis de Kerfuffleplump. Gainsborough, van Dyck, van Dyck. The dudes in the last painting are wearing wedge-heeled boots...

6 Favorite Street Style Blogs

The Internet serves us in many ways: it's home to a wealth of information (just Google it), it's a way to connect with people around the world (social networks!), and it's a repository for ignorance (YouTube commenters). One of my favorite perks of all this newfangled technology is the ability to virtually people-watch stylish folks around the world--aka cruise Street Style blogs*. Everybody knows about The Sartorialist and Garance Dore...
