Caught in the Crossfire

Illionaire Crossfire Swimsuit,  $99.95 Is it too early to be thinking about bathing suits? These two from Pitbull Mansion are full of genius details, although the one below does not come with the feather epaulet. Trust me, I checked. Mostly because I was trying to imagine what it would look like wet. This is Genevieve […]


Edwardian Ball Recap Begins

So, I was entirely too busy at the Edwardian Ball to take proper photos, not to mention that my photographic skills are questionable at best. Thankfully, Neil Girling from The Blight (above, with Coilhouse‘s Nadya Lev) was everywhere, camera in hand. Check out his blog for lots and lots of photos from the event. A […]


Grayer Days

Working a bit of gray into your otherwise black wardrobe can give you lots more layering options- after all, it can be hard to tell how awesome your layers are if they are all blending into each other. Try deep charcoals and soft heather grays mixed into your basic blacks- I tend to pick very […]


Miss Sixty Winter 2010

I tend to pretty much ignore anything produced by Miss Sixty, but when Frankie Sanford made the headlines a few days ago in these awesome shorts, I figured maybe I should take another look. I mean, I don’t even wear shorts (all shorts of any length look perverse on me. It’s the ass),  but I […]

This is just one of those things that might not me fashion, but I had to share. “Knitting in Biology”, from CraftyHedgehog on Etsy.


The New Fur

“The New Fur”, Vogue China, October 2009. Photographs by Jason Kibbler. First off, the boots in the first photograph. I need them. Second off, my Chinese is poor, but being Vogue I rather suspect that all these designs are real fur. I am, as most of you know, NOT a fur fan. But I am […]


Bat Pack?

Yesterday, Nixon found something full of wow in a I Want That & I Want That NAO sort of way.  Today, I found this, and I’m not really entirely sure which Full of Wow to file this under. Oh yeah.  It’s a back pack.  A dragon backpack.  It is so made of magic that I […]
