Tweet I’ve got the perfect necklace for the folks at US Airways, who sent out a tweet that personifies the meaning of “Not Safe for Work.” If you haven’t seen the photo, you can cautiously approach it via this Buzzfeed story. To give you a hint about what you’re going to see, Buzzfeed says the […]

Tweet Have you seen the story about the fake sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela’s funeral? Well, even if you have, you haven’t REALLY experienced the story unless you’ve read Michael K’s version on Dlisted. I will not be satisfied until Michael K takes over all reporting for CNN, Fox News, the New York Times […]

Tweet The news that designer Jeremy Scott has been named creative director at ever-whimsical Moschino, one of my favorite fashion houses, reminded me of an item I had lurking in my blog drafts. Last month, Scott settled with NHS, Inc./Santa Cruz Skateboards after the latter accused Scott of using artist Jimbo Phillips’s distinctive skateboard graphics in […]

Tweet I figure all my U.S. readers know that, last night, a Florida jury acquitted George Zimmerman of charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the Feb. 26, 2012, shooting death of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed, black, 17-year-old who was walking home through a gated community after buying Skittles candy and a watermelon-flavored drink.

Tweet I like this quote about jewelry from an interview that fashion designer Miuccia Prada did with the New York Times in May: “I’m interested in jewels … I know what it is: I only like antique jewelry because I like the stories attached to them. I like to know who was wearing them. It’s […]

Tweet Today’s WWD has an update on last week’s reports that Rihanna is suing a Topshop supplier for using her image on a t-shirt without permission. Topshop and Rihanna’s lawyers declined to comment, as did River Island, the Topshop competitor with whom Rihanna is officially collaborating. The article does say that even though the U.K. […]

Tweet After the Newtown, Conn., school shooting, the Facebook page for 170 Million Americans for Public Broadcasting posted a quote from the late children’s television host Fred Rogers. (Thank you to Andrea García-Vargas for pointing me towards this after the Boston Marathon bombing today.)

Tweet While reading this weekend’s Wall Street Journal, I laughed a little over a story called, “The One That Got Away,” about shopping for past-season, but not-officially-vintage fashion on Yoox, eBay, and a number of recently launched pre-owned clothing sites. In particular, these two sentences amused me: “Buying clothes in this way, however, requires a […]
