Shopping: Virtual Vintage

I have a thing for vintage. I know I'm not alone in this. Search the blogosphere--heck, search the entire world wide web--and you're greeted by a plethora of blogs, shopping sites, articles, and message boards all dedicated to the love of vintage clothing. Lately I've been suffering through some pretty serious withdrawal as I haven't been able to spend time browsing the cluttered aisles of my favorite thrift and vintage haunts (Goodwill, I miss you!

Style: Philip Lim Copycat

The opening look for the Spring 2009 3.1 Philip Lim show was one of the most popular of the season--and really, what's not to like?  However, if you look closely, you can see that the pieces that make up the look are fairly common: slouchy black pants, short sleeved white blouse, cropped vest (okay, the gold Sargeant Pepper styling is pretty special), and black open-toe shoes. It can be interpreted in a number of ways! Here's mine: You probably have

Has the impending spring season had an impact on your style?

On the Road Again: Chicago

I'm not sure why I continue to torture myself in this manner, but I've decided to take the Megabus to Chicago to attend a friend's birthday celebration (woo-hoo!). Long bus rides are not my idea of a good time, but it beats driving: Tamia + long distance drive in unfamiliar territory = road rage of the highest degree. Plus, I'd inevitably get lost. Like, stuck in the middle of a cornfield in Arkansas lost. Yes, even

Style: Menswear Inspired

Perhaps inspired by the Comme des Garcons/Like the Boys post from last week, I felt the urge to express my masculine side, which, much like my feminine side, involves scowling arrogantly, greedily stuffing junk food down my throat, and telling other people what to do. Trousers, J. Crew; oxford shirt, vest, and suspenders, thrifted; shoes, Charles David; Porkpie hat, Hats in the Belfry; Watch, Timex
