Carousel — Week Ending 29th June 2007

Featuring more baked goods & Japanese kids dressed pirates than ever before!

Japan + Johnny Depp = a good time. & you know it.

Julie in Japan writes about a really cool way of commemorating someone’s life.

Vampire cupcake! Way, way too awesome. I added this girl’s journal to my friends list because I HAVE to keep up with her ingenious horror-themed baking.

Ellen Von Unwerth’s “Omahyra & Boyd” shoot. Not safe for work, etc., but very hot!

A t-shirt for Haruki Murakami fans. I want to buy this for my boyfriend.

Ellen Von Unwerth’s “Girls In Their Own Style” shoot. (Yes, I love Ellen.)

Faking Good Breeding had a bra epiphany! A lot of women underestimate the importance of wearing a bra that fits. It’s the base for your clothing, so if it doesn’t fit, everything you put over the top is going to look wrong! As your body changes, your bras should too. Get a professional fitting every year!

A drag queen birthday cake!

& finally, a special treat…

“I would like to introduce myself ~ I’m Andrea, aka Spacegirl, from San Francisco ~ and I wanted to let you know that I am a huge fan of your blog. I read it every day. In fact, I’ve been so inspired by your dedication to your blog that I decided to start my own Daily Outfit blog! It’s all your doing, lady ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve discovered it’s a great way to help me keep track of my own outfits, since it’s soooo easy to forget and so easy to mis-remember the details. It’s been really fun so far! You can see it here:

This is a follow-up to my article from yesterday, Eating Disorders. So, here’s my personal experience with EFT. My boyfriend discovered it online & started using it. I thought he was mental, but was like, oh, whatever, it’s his prerogative, he can do what he likes. He kept raving about it, though, & trying to […]


Eating Disorders

06.26.2007 · gala

I just watched this documentary called ‘Thin’ which was, predictably enough, all about eating disorders. It followed the progress of four women at a treatment facility called Renfrew in Florida — Brittany, Shelley, Polly & Alisa. The movie ends with an update on all the women. One of them loses 40 pounds & tries to […]

Why You Should Go To Sales

06.22.2007 · style

I know sales can be awful, especially the first day. Throngs of women, sweating & pushing & vomiting on one another in a furious race to the choice markdowns. But sometimes it can be worth it. Oh yes it can. Why, you ask? Valid question! Here is why. Original price: $1300. Sale price: $490. HELL […]
