So Hip It Hurts

Saturday, March 29, 2008

Dear AJ and Dan,

Check out this website: http://www.painfullyhip.com/category/painfully-hip-site-of-the-week/
Each week, they profile a blog that is painfully...devastatingly...horrifically (!) hip. All you have to do is send the link of your blog to painfullyhip@painfullyhip.com.

If selected, your blog will recieve hundreds of hits each day.

I feel you boys are worthy. So I'm letting you know about this site. In the mean time, I personally deam you, The most painfully hip site of life.

Dan:Check out there blog: trendytitties.blogspot.com
Its more addicitve then the do's and dont's in Vice. And they are definitely a do. (I think the pictures speak to themselves.) They are intensly charismatic, mad stylish and hilarious together.
So much love!


Who Knew?

Thursday, March 27, 2008

I somehow found myself on the website of Frye Boots and I was very suprised to see countless pairs of beautiful and well crafted shoes. It was a shocker, because I always thought that Frye made its products for a soccer mom sort of demographic. I guess not...

Hot! I really like brown shoes...Well made brown shoes. I can't deal with the crap I wear from Payless anymore. They make my feet hurt after three minutes.


Wish List

Wednesday, March 26, 2008

I want this recipe book! It was published by the Peoples Potato Project Collective. People's Potato offers free vegan meals to Concordia students five days a week. If you are a student at Concordia and have not yet tried the food...you should go. Right. Now. So delicious!

One day I was in line for Peoples Potato and there was a girl holding a Slingshot Daily Planner. I almost flipped! I have wanted one of these since the summer of 2006.

"Where did you get that!?" I asked!
Like a beacon of hope that she is, she told me: "I got this at the Anarchist Book Store on St. Laurent, but Le Frigo Vert sold them in September."
So what makes this planner so special? Wellll, it has the basic elements of a student planner but it also includes a contact list of radical groups around the globe, a menstrual calendar, cool art, info on police repression, popular activist and alternative cultural holidays and so much more! And its printed with sustainable paper and ink.

The last thing on my wishlist is:

This Otesha book is like a bible for activists and environmentalists. (Maybe bible isn't the right word.) Anyways! I read it in the summer while I was in B.C. and I would really like to own a copy, read it a million times and then lend it to my friends.
I know that I can often be a stupid consumer but I want to start looking for ways to live a more sustainable, alternative and happy life! But I can still love shoes and pretty dresses, right?


Pink Tights and Thigh Highs

Monday, March 24, 2008

Pair a baby doll dress, with knee highs and boots and I'm on board!
I'm also really liking the idea of baby pink tights, but I havent been able to find a pair. I'm currently stalking some on Ebay but I will probably never buy them because Ebay scares me.


You are obsessed with Chloe Sevigny when...

Saturday, March 22, 2008

  • You've gone to the library and printed off the 7 page article that was written about her in the New Yorker in 1994.

  • You've seen every movie she's ever been in.

  • You've Youtubed her.

  • When fashion magazines get some common sense and profile her or include a picture you get excited.

  • You bought an issue of Sassy magazine off of Ebay simply because she interned there in the 90's. (Okay, I didnt do this one, but I'd like to).

  • You are obsessed with her new fashion line Opening Ceremony

  • You write very sad, awe-struck blog entries about her. As my friend AJ would say, "What a lame titty."
Bottom line: I love her. Ultimate girly crush.


Liebe Marlene

Friday, March 21, 2008

There are times when I feel like I've got a grip on fashion and then I stumble across girls like Liebe Marlene. Take a look at her blog: http://liebemarlene.blogspot.com/
This woman reminds me that I've got a loooong long way to go. But ahh! I love her! Her blog is an endless source of inspiration.

She runs a vintage store off of ebay (meaning, these fabulous frocks could be yours!)http://stores.ebay.com/Liebemarlene-Vintage


RIP Polaroid

Tuesday, March 18, 2008

Goodbye Polaroid, its been fun.
Lets ignore the company when they try to sell us digital cameras and flat screen TV's. Ew.

Vic WHAT Vic WHAT Victoria!

Thursday, March 13, 2008

A few weeks ago, I got a haircut and asked for The Victoria. Sad but very true.
(Bitch ain't got nothin on me!)

I donated the hair to Locks of Love - a non profit organization that creates hair pieces for children who have lost their hair due to illness.


Wheels on Fire

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

This morning I woke up and the front tire was flat! I'm sorry bike. I love you, never leave me.

Hey look! It's me. Except I dont have long hair anymore and I usually don't bike around naked. Only sometimes...

I miss my bike so much. The spring season will be here soon. I want to get a basket for it and weave fake flowers through it. Maybe i'll invest in a puppy...just kidding. Theres a special place in hell for people who use animals as accesories.

Ali MacGraw from Love Story
Her outfits in this movie are classic. I hope to accumulate similar pieces this summer...high waisted skirts, red tights, preppy plaid, 70's dresses and brimless hats.

Gah! These pictures don't do her justice. Pleeeease watch the movie!
Much love for love story,


Is fashion fascism?

Thursday, March 6, 2008

"Style is originality; fashion is fascism. The two are eternally and unalterably opposed." -Lester BangsBjork says:
"I like the creative angle (of fashion). Where people express themself. But I don't like it when it's too much of people being told what to do, and too much like... fascism, of magazines telling women to starve themself, and they obey! "Or they're like 'out of fashion', which is the worst crime you could ever commit! So they get executed for it, publicly!"
She's being a little intense. Style is my playground. If I didn't have fun, I wouldn't do it! I think tabloid magazines should take the blame. Not fashion. Dont hate, Bjork! Dont hate.


Via Rail: A Fashion Goldmine

Wednesday, March 5, 2008

On a recent train trip, I found a pair of gorgeous black vintage boots lying sadly beside the garbage can. My heart was racing when I scooped those babies up and took them home.

(For us ladies who are a size 10 - it is nearly impossible to find a nice pair of vintage boots.)

Yesterday, I was on the train and I saw the style issue of The New Yorker in the netted compartment of the seat. I scooped that magazine up, and yes, I took it home. (I know. I'm so bad!)


And it begins...

Sunday, March 2, 2008

I want to show you some pictures of my recent trip to New York CityThe shopping was so expensive but I did manage to find one darling dress at a clothing store called Screaming Mimi's:
