: thing causing otherwise-reasonable women to purchase harem pants and fanny packs.
It's now Fall 2010 (in reality, Runwayland is stomping through Spring 2012 already). It's been a year since anyone called the Trophy Jacket a "must", "gottahaveit", or "go-to". Guess it's safe to go back in the water.

All super cute, a bit heavy (read: $$$) to ship, and apparently must be worn with daisy duke's short enough for Britney herself. Think I'll keep the Trophy Jacket on the back burner wish list, since I'm bound to get one of those infuriatingly cryptic "Dress Festive" invites over the holidays.

This friend is no less important to the group dynamic than She-Who-Bakes-All-The-Time or Type-A-Control-Freak-Who-Party-Plans-the-Bejeezus-Outta-Everything. We all need that 'nasty gal' friend, although...

Now, I don't mean to go all third-wave feminist, but there is a weird double standard for these sexual anthropologists among us (ie: while girls are slutty, guys are studs). So too has it gone in fashion. It goes without saying (but here, for your reading pleasure anyways) that the male and female forms have been treated disparately by all manner of artistic expression ever since some caveman picked up a stick a stick of charcoal and doodled a sketch of cavewoman.
clever, risque commentary on sexual identity and gender roles in modern society :)

As with the rumored Snooki memoir deal, or Snook-a-Book, someone should've thought this one through:
I love a good Venn.
They are made from bullet casings found in and around the Liberian capital, Monrovia. The unisex design features two charms, one melted down and another untouched.

The modern day version of the Make Do and Mend propaganda of the 40's and 50's is Platform21's (an Amsterdam-based collective) Repair Manifesto. If you can get your hands on the vintage pamphlets too there's some grandmotherly wisdom about increasing textile longevity (ie: the extinct art of 'darning').
