[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...

[PRETTY PICTURES] “The Newcomer” Shot By Steve Lee

Our pal Steve Lee is a pretty talented guy. He wears a bunch of hats (okay usually he only wears one hat, perched atop his lovely bob, but we’re dealing in metaphors here): wearer of white pants (no easy feat for anyone), gallerist (Lee is a partner at the newly opened Slow Culture gallery in...

[PRETTY PICTURES] Cinematic Marni Magic On STOP IT RIGHT NOW

It’s no secret we love Jayne Min of STOP IT RIGHT NOW’s minimalist-tomboy aesthetic. Even though our collective knowledge of fashion is more minimal than Jayne’s typical workday attire, so minimal, in fact, that this compliment could be interpreted as an insult, we’re going to tell you our feelings about her first editorial whether you...

[CULT TALK] Illustrator Esra Røise On Hair, Cake, and Feminism

I can’t remember at exactly what point I decided to make Norwegian illustrator Esra Caroline Røise my Pen Pal, but I do recall the precise moment it became official, an exchange involving the ceremonious swapping of compliments and cat photos via email, of course. You don’t really need to know the whole story about how she...

[LISTS] Top 10 “Fuck It” “Fashion” Moments

Today in Trying-To-Reach-Our-Fashion-Quota-But-Not-Really-Knowing-Anything-About-Fashion, we bring you this “comprehensive” list of 10 semi-fashion-y things we found on the Internet, that epitomize the spirit of not-giving-a-fuck-ness, in no particular order. 1. You guys, I try really hard not to talk about Rihanna. Like, almost as hard as I try not to talk about Lena Dunham’s naked body....

[PRETTY PICTURES] This Oyster Mag Editorial Gives Me Major Shaved Head Envy

If you know me (which you don’t in any real capacity, aside from my liberal ramblings on the internet), then you need no explanation as to why this is the best photoshoot ever. BUT, just because you need no explanation, doesn’t mean I won’t give you one, because that’s just the kind of sweet deal...
