Sirens Ease LA into Yet Another New Year

By mattjosh, published on Jan 3, 2007

A few nights ago, Los Angeles heralded in a New Year in typical urban fashion. I’m sure there were side-street fireworks in some neighborhoods. I’m sure that there was at least one champagne flute broken by an errant chunk of cork-based shrapnel. I’m even sure that someone shared that special midnight kiss with a complete stranger (if you’re reading this, Girl-in-the-black-dress, write me?). But for me, it wasn’t a new year until several hours after the ball had dropped on our pre-recorded, PST-friendly Times Square footage. Not until my twenty-minute drive home crossed the paths... (more)

UGG-Lasting

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Dec 28, 2006

Well ladies and gentlemen, just when we prepare ourselves for a sweet goodbye to an old friend, trends come back again and slaps us fashion mavens with surprise. Just when I thought I would finally see the time in history every designer from Milan to Tokyo has been silently praying for, celebrities have to go and turn the tides once more. Yes sir, you guessed it: UGGs are back. Oh God, are they back. Again. Talk about resilient – the fashion trend is known for its made-to-last sheepskin interior that offers an extra plush instep. Who would have thought that here was a fad durable inside... (more)

50s Daze (or Days) at Dal Rae Steakhouse

By pleasurepalate, published on Dec 27, 2006

...was the main reason we came to Dal Rae in the first place. Orders included Steak Diane, prepared tableside, as well as prime rib, steak and other various cuts of meat. For the meat entrees, it truly is all about the meat. The sides are kept simple. You get veggies and potatoes cooked in some fashion whether it's baked or French-fried. I ordered the Petite Filet Pepper Steak and it was cooked to perfection. Both tender and moist, it was literally packed with flavor. Just looking at it, I could see the black and white pepper embedded into the meat's surface. I was so enthralled with my... (more)

You are My Sunshine...

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Dec 22, 2006

... in your home. Filling your surroundings with movement, life, and overall good vibes prevents you from falling into a blues funk. Even something as simple as downing some bright colors can stop the pity party. Vogue's November issue highlighted some of the new trends in "Resort Wear" in a fashion spread titled "Get Happy!" Believe it or not, even Vogue was willing to move away from some of the dismal fall trends of dark and heavy wools to more neon-inspired mood lifters. Eager to end the black-streak à la Emo, the spread featured extra-bright pinks and yellows. Downing the funky... (more)

Find of the Week: Concealer as Foundation??

By Deanna Meiresonne, published on Dec 20, 2006

...A recent trip into the city of Chicago found me scurrying along the sidewalk amongst the hundreds of other weekend window shoppers, waiting for my friends to call and take me from this crazy whirlwind into a much safer (and warmer) flat. Determined to use the time as wisely as a young fashionista could possibly do, I headed into the inviting elements of Macy's (previously known as the infamous Marshall Field's), after diving past tourists admiring the window displays as if there were finely spun chocolatiers inside. Once safely past the entry on Michigan Avenue, I moseyed on over... (more)

God Gave Rock n Roll to Him

By V, published on Dec 19, 2006

...Inside, critically acclaimed, independent, Australian Singer/ Songwriter, Matt Ellis and his band are about to step on stage. It's such a dark, sexy, atmospheric room this one (the only thing thankfully missing is a smoke haze). The deep, wood-paneled walls arranged in that tasteful, art-deco fashion, floorboards underfoot and cast-iron, Moroccan, sculpted spheres - like jewelry hanging from the rafters - further illuminating the candle-lit tables below. This room always sets you up to feel like you will be part of something intimate, amazing and truly special, that you've stumbled upon... (more)

America Clean of Racism

By D. E. Carson, published on Dec 18, 2006

...derogatory term, yet prior to its use by Senator Allen, very few people in America had ever heard the term. Research into the etymology of the word reveals “macaca” is a genus of primates which includes the rhesus monkey. No legitimate resource identifies the word in any other fashion. Therefore, it can be concluded that the use of the term by Senator Allen was little more than his ignorance of the definition of the word itself. The fact that it was immediately defined as a racial slur shows the ignorance of those in the main scream media who were in search of anything... (more)

Environment Shines on New Fashion Bags

By Alethea, published on Dec 5, 2006

There isn’t anything innovative about changing baby diapers, unless you’re some of the new dads sporting the latest trend in diaper bags. Forget the stylish diaper vests or the “masculine” dark colored diaper bags, these new bags are made out of truck and tractor tire inner tubes, trimmed with hemp and include a battery operated light. In fact, there’s a whole line of these handcrafted, recycled bags including a variety of purses, Ipod cases, DVD cases, baby bags, totes and messenger bags. The inner tubes that make the bags are collected from tire centers before the tires are discarded.... (more)

Dying to eat?

By Alethea, published on Nov 23, 2006

... Many others that don’t have the luxury of affording such a gracious meal, but there are also those that have it all right in front of them and refuse it. Welcome to anorexia. This disease took a new life this past week, albeit not under an entirely surprising circumstance. Brazilian fashion model Ana Carolina Reston, 21, died last week from complications due to her struggles with anorexia. At 5’8”, Ana weighed in at a mere 88 pounds, a weight which doctors said would be fitting for a 5 foot, 12-year-old girl. The fashion industry has been criticized for making the... (more)
