[CONFESSAY] The Devil Poops in Prada

Everybody poops. Even long-legged women wearing Comme des Garçons and Prada and silver stilettos with square emoji blocks on them. This is something you learn early on, and must navigate with grace and poor taste jokes when you work in the fashion business, in an office that is staffed predominantly with women. Fact: women in...

Do you think there will ever be a decade when Calvin Klein isn’t setting the gold standard for most sex drive inducing ad campaign ever? God, I hope not. With their latest promotional film for CK One, featuring an almost-naked Petra Collins, Dev Hynes, Soko, and just about every other free-lovin’ tumblr baby you’ve ever...

[FASHUN] Photographer Yumna Al-Arashi Makes Tevas Look Good

The hierarchy of socially acceptable comfort footwear is as follows: Fuzzy Celine slides > Birkenstocks > Tevas > Crocs. But after announcing their crunchy collaboration with Opening Ceremony (dropping May 23), Teva is making a major play for that #1 orthopedic-chic spot. What was once just reserved for Berkeley hippies, eccentric art teachers, and un-ironic...

[LISTS] 13 Headlines That Summarize Why Almost Every Women’s Lifestyle Site Can Suck It

These days, everyone’s a journalist. And what that really means is that nobody went to journalism school (including myself, hence this article and pretty much the entire contents of this website). It also means that every faux-gi (that’s faux yogi, for those of you not currently skinny dipping inside my vast and refreshing stream of...

[POP CULT] Fashion’s Creepy Uncle: Still Creepy

Someone really ought to to write a pamphlet for models who reach a certain editorial status in their careers. It should outline the following: “Hey, so congratulations on making modeling your main source of income. Now make way for the tons of lecherous industry figures who will proposition the shit out of you in the...

[FASHUN] Parisian Chic (Is) For Dummies

Look, this isn’t a ruse for nationalism here, but every transitional season the fashion goggles turn towards the land of Brie, baguettes and the cuter bulldog. Suddenly, the weather’s turning crisp and autumnal? Time for berets and a boyfriend blazer hanging off your shoulders! Winter has finally defrosted? Throw on some kind of stripe-y shirt...

[LISTS] The 10 Stages Of Eyeliner Detox

Oscar Wilde famously said, “Everything in moderation, including moderation.” When it concerns carbs, booze and even chocolate, I’ve had no problem with casual indulgence. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said of my addiction to eyeliner, which has dictated my self-esteem since the 7th grade, when I emerged from my mother’s bathroom with a full half...

[CONFESSAY] Pink Hair, I Care: How Going Pink Made Me Realize I’m A Judgmental Hypocrite

Dyeing your hair is an addiction. Like heroin, or sex, or picking your face until it bleeds, or like not leaving your college dorm room for the entirety of winter because you’re holed up watching the OC (and taking oxycontin). Or like chips. I once tweeted (please hold while I search my twitter history for...

[PRETTY PICTURES] Karen Walker “Visible” Campaign

I know that in Internet years these pics are older than my holiest pair of period panties, but I’m gonna play the “Better Late Than Never” card here, because I just found one in my wallet (sure, it’s covered with tobacco bits and gum, but it still works). Karen Walker consistently delivers aesthetically superior lookbooks...

[PRETTY PICTURES] STOP IT RIGHT NOW Hibernates in Stella McCartney

Fact: There is no greater garment than a turtleneck. Why? I’ll start with 6 reasons: 1) They are cozy 2) They are librarian sexy, which is better than overtly sexy. 3) They make you look like an intellectual/art teacher/therapist. 4) They make you feel like Diane Keaton. 5) They  make you feel like you’re starring...

[LISTS] My Thoughts on a ARWEAR (Anti-Rape Wear)

Doing what it does best, the Internet has recently brought it to my attention that a truly innovative brand called ARWEAR is seeking funding for a new line of comfortable and “elegant” anti-rape wear. No, I haven’t misspoken, these things look like bike shorts, but are the next best thing to having Vagina Dentata. In...

[PRETTY PICTURES] ’4Real’ by Justin Ridler X Mark Vassallo for Oyster

Everyone knows Cultist is the unstable home to the best sex + music + questionable feminist confessional content, and Oyster has the best fashion editorials. Out here on the Internet, there is a lot of misinformation, much of it surrounding Khloe and Lamar Odom’s relationship and the effectiveness of condoms (when used properly), but some...
