Menswear Monthly: Harry Styles, Gucci, and the Gender Binary

This is long overdue, and I just finished an emotional viewing of the Harry Styles: Behind the Album documentary, so I can’t promise that this post is going to be well-written, but we need to talk about Harry Styles. Many men are well-dressed, but it’s Harry’s disregard for gender norms that makes his style so exciting.


I haven’t abandoned you; I’ll be spamming your feeds again before you know it

As I’m sure regular readers have realized, I haven’t been able to post here very often lately. This is just an update to tell you the long story explaining why I’ve been so MIA lately and to let you guys know that there will be a few new posts coming soon, followed by a more regular schedule in about a month or so. So stay tuned!

All of the things that I would buy from Kate Spade if I had an employee discount´╗┐

Not to humblebrag or whatever, but last week I had to turn down an interview at Kate Spade New York because the store I applied to doesn’t hire people full-time. However, I didn’t learn about the full-time thing until after I had already researched the employee discount on GlassDoor. Apparently (and definitely don’t correct me if I’m wrong), employees get a 75% discount in Kate Spade stores. So, to mourn my loss, here are all of the things I would buy from Kate Spade if I had an employee discount.

Unpacking the Costume Institute’s Exhibition, “Unpacking Fashion”

Happy New Year friends! I’m sorry that I’ve been MIA lately; I needed some time off. But I’m here now, and I’m excited to tell you guys about the Masterworks: Unpacking Fashion exhibition at the Met — I went to New York with some friends last week to see it. Aside from eating pizza and Halal Guys, seeing this exhibition was the main reason for the pilgrimage, so after five hours on a sweaty, bumpy bus ride from hell, I was worried that it might not live up to my hype. But, of course, Jessica Regan and Andrew Bolton did not disappoint.

How to save money on designer stuff with Poshmark´╗┐

Hi friends! You guys probably already know this, but Poshmark is so cool. (Side note — if you did already know this, why didn’t you tell me?) Apparently I made a Poshmark account a while back, but I never used it. I just rediscovered it the other day while I was trying to find a bridesmaid dress for my friend’s wedding this summer. I was on the website, but I was on my phone, so I downloaded the app and started messing with it, and now I’m obsessed. People are selling their secondhand (sometimes new!) designer stuff for reduced prices, and you can haggle on the price without having to look someone in the eye when you do it! It’s a dream.

Menswear Monthly #3

This month, let’s take a look at a collection with a slightly more attainable price point than our review of the Dolce & Gabbana menswear collection. Now that it’s finally getting cold, I’m going to be getting my menswear inspiration from J.Crew’s fall/winter collection.
