Author Tackles Her Food vs. Fashion Dilemma...and Wins!

By Jacquie Somerville, published on Apr 27, 2012

For years, Vancouver writer Jacquie Somerville wrestled with her two conflicting passions: food and fashion, and the resulting issues with weight, body image, and self worth. As many women can attest, it’s a real dilemma trying to reconcile Dolce & Gabbana with dulce de leche, and Marc Jacobs with mousse cake. But Jacquie, an admitted fashion and food addict, manages to bring these two passions together in My Fat Little Rule Book.

“I wrote My Fat Little Rule Book as a guide for myself, and it contains the 15 rules that allowed me to finally achieve my goal weight,” said Jacquie.... (more)

Dimensions of Fashion

By Uttam Gill, published on Apr 12, 2012

With the exclusive blend of subtle serenity and the dynamic crave for design, the fashion designer holds the rainbow of colors and that facilitates him/her to design. Fashion is a passion which dresses our body to reflect our mind. Go anywhere; you would see the dazzling display of riotous color, with varied textures. Interestingly, if we look into the history and the pictorial remains of past, we would see the stark similarity in the construction of costumes and other accessories of dress, with that of today. May it be footwear; ornament, headgear or loose drape, one can see equanimity of... (more)

Killed for a Haircut

By Anastasia , published on Mar 11, 2012

...press, saying that the ‘Moral Police’ have been granted permission by the Ministry of Education to enter schools in the capital to pinpoint students bold or foolhardy enough to adopt an emo look. The suspicion is that the authorities and the extremists are working in harmony in acts of fashion genocide. The victims are young, teenagers mostly. People have been arrested not just because of their haircuts but for something as trivial as wearing jeans.

Yes, that’s the brave new Iraq, a country that has such devils in it, a country with forms of murderous intolerance that... (more)

The Goddess of Instantiate

By p.d.adams, published on Feb 25, 2012

She scans theJungle as if an elderly woman watching silent from a rosewood staircase with focused concern, false power. She appears to herself, briefly, as one of the biobots positioned at theWorkstation.

Her monitors put on a show. It's the data that loves her the most. It always will.

Far into the future she will remain actively quiet, without prayer, authorized to run on her own with little interruption of self-instantiated loops and corrections--the most perfect of creatures.

Hers is the kind of data future generations will hold up to a celebrity light.

She amazes... (more)

Kobi Levi Shoes: Fashion Meets Art

By Felicia Stevenson, published on Oct 19, 2011

...humurous and wonderfully imaginative.

Levi tells us that each design can take about a month to complete, and that prefers quality over quantity, no doubt the secret of his success.

His unique shoe designs, like the "Coffee time" shoe, have certainly made a "splash" in the fashion world. (hahaha)

Apparently, Lady Gaga has purchased pieces from Levi's collection, which doesn't surprise me at all, since she the first person who came to mind when I saw them!

I've always had a bit of a shoe fetish, but this is definitely taking it to the next level!

LIFELINES Are RINGING

By Lumiere, published on Jun 13, 2011

...After receiving the blessings we laid down on our matts to begin another meditation, during which I stared up at the ceiling that connected the pyramid building I laid within. I closed my eyes and a moment of peace came over me, but then once again the runway models of Alexander McQueen's fashion shows came strutting on my meditation practice like a flash movie in my mind. I found it rather odd that he of all people would be 'showing up' for me, since I never knew Alexander McQueen personally, even though we both lived in New York and worked in the luxury fashion industry for years. He ... (more)

Lady Gaga: Trendy or Timeless?

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Feb 1, 2011

...Lady GaGa is her innovativeness. Before there was the cash and prizes, there was....Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta. Cute name, huh? Lady Gaga's original alias.

Her wardrobe, her ideas, her obvious thought and meaning behind each twisted act that defies all I previously "knew" about fashion and theatrics, is enough to make me pause and reflect. To think, to make an audience of millions and millions of people worldwide to THINK...aye, there's the rub.

What I mean to say is behind the glitter-body-suit and retro shades, behind the corporate structures following her around... (more)

3 Facial Scares

By Glenn T, published on Sep 15, 2010

... and you couldn’t be cool in a walk-in freezer. Patchy facial hair makes you look more like a Chernobyl survivor than a bad-ass. The only thing your ill-considered swatch of facial scrub could possibly be good for is distracting the random, unwary female with your impossibly bad hygienic/fashion choices while you slip a “rufie” into her drink. The perfect accessory to this abortion of a grooming decision is a two-sizes-too-small ribbed t-shirt that you think makes you look built, and that everyone else thinks makes you look like a chode. Seriously, you’d be better off just ... (more)

3 Fall Fashion Faux-Pas

By Glenn T, published on Sep 9, 2010

To be honest, I wouldn’t know “fall fashion” from its other seasonal counterparts, except that when it gets colder, I tend to put more clothes on. That being said, it seems that no matter how much advice is offered on what not to wear these days (i.e. a Google search of “what not to wear” yielded approx. 726,000 results), there seem to be more and more examples of people who either got dressed in the dark or let their pets/pre-adolescent children choose their clothes. I recently had an occasion to be at a grocery store near the middle of the day and it looked like everyone there had... (more)

3 Ladies Magazine Lies

By Glenn T, published on Mar 20, 2010

...into something like this, it's a fairly safe bet that they don't like you. If a magazine does it, it's a fairly safe bet that they think you're stupid. Take it from someone with three and a half decades of bachelorhood - the sexiest thing you can wear under your clothes is confidence.3. Fashionably Hate. Letting a magazine which is largely sponsored by the fashion industry tell you what you should be wearing is like letting a used car salesman tell you what you should be driving. The fashion business appears to have become a monolithic and unstoppable amplifier and enabler for the... (more)
