Kali Arulpragasam’s Superfertile line of elaborate, artisanal, and illustrative jewelry is fucking tops. Meticulous constructed and eye-poppingly beautiful, the pieces also raise probing questions about international society, poverty, and war. Intrigued? Download a PDF of Tourism, the summer 2008 collection, here.
So everyone LOVES the W “Summer Camp” shoot, but why is Lara Stone topless or naked in every single photo? I feel bad for the girl, it’s hardly for fashion…she’s just there to show off her awesome boobs. I love awesome boobs as much as the next person, but it cheapened the shoot in my [...]
This one is really not fair….from Altamira:
Hallo music lovers. Below you will find the best summer girl band of all time, Marine Girls. Get out you straw hats and terrycloth sundresses! Kudos to the girls for the punk rock hair cuts. The British seaside is a uniquely romantic and nostalgic place, wouldn’t you say? I have a soft spot for harbors, [...]
Now that summer solstice has occurred and mid-atlantic temperatures are creeping up to the 90+ degree range, I thought I would make a sister-post to 2007′s winter beauty suggestions. I had hoped that by now I’d be making all my own beauty products, but it probably won’t happen until I win the lottery and buy [...]
(pic via Yelp and Meghan H.) Bummer! The Washingtonian reports they will be opening a new location in Silver Sprung in the Fall. I will miss those weekend pails of doughnut holes and fried catfish with cheesy grits. I am hungry. (So much resto chatter on Washingtonian today!)
The Stockholm-based company ACNE (“Ambition to Create Novel Expressions”) Jeans is having a summer sale. Their jeans make you look lean and long but we really appreciate their overall simple, classic forms that are tweaked to give a modern look. Can you tell we do our shopping during sale season? Oh yeah, and why can’t [...]
(Godard’s “Weekend” pic via AFI.Com) So much culture! So little time! Silverdocs may be wrapping up but you can still catch AFI’s “Jean-Luc Godard in the 1960′s” filfest. This week: “La Chinoise,” “My Life to Live,” and “Weekend.” Wednesday, Smithsonian Folklife Festival starts up on the Mall. To avoid the crowds, go this week, before [...]
Usmagazine.com has a slideshow: Olsen Twins: 22 Years of Fashion!. (The exclamation points is theirs.) This slideshow is chock-full of awesome outfits, some of which I have never seen before! (It’s not like I crazily troll the Internet for pics of them … or anything … ahem.) I will post highlights here. The print on [...]
(from a.p.c. s/s 08 look book via ahistoryofarchitecture.blogspot.com) APC sale for mens and womens! You can nab this carefree throwback tunic for half off. Note: this stuff moves fast.
Granny TunesThere aren’t enough synonyms for “genius” to describe the way I feel about design collective Greece Is For Lovers. Seriously. My grandmother’s neighbor once tried to teach me how to crochet in the style of the iPod above but I didn’t catch on too easily, though I still wish I was more versed in [...]
This week’s hails from London via France…gorgeous summer colors!! From Garance Dore:
Great, educational post over at DC Goodwill Fashion Blog–she breaks down some of our thrifting options by 501(c)3 status…also,in the same vein, here’s a great primer on the used textile industry and whether or not donating clothes to charity is actually charitable.
Hey errbody. I present to you… Listopad Mix #4. The best part of this mix? So hard to choose, but it’s the 12-year old New Orleans rapper on the Devious track. Please enjoy. Anquette “Janet Reno”Silky Slim “Sister Sister”Betty Davis “Talkin Trash”The Dix “Here Comes the Dix”Devious “Hey P Poppers”Andre Nickatina and Equipto “N Yo [...]
(photo courtesty of tangysweet via dcist) For those who steer clear of news from our coastal friends in L.A. and NYC, here is a brief history of the frozen yogurt (“fro-yo”) evolution. Frozen yogurt originated with the Red Mango chain in South Korea. This is frozen yogurt in the literal sense, yogurt that contains active [...]
Oh, the places you’ll go this week! (With our guidance, that is.) You’ll probably stumble into work hungover—or at least tired from staying up and watching Weeds–on Monday, June 16, so don’t worry about going all-out tonight. It’s totally understandable if all you can muster up the energy to do is e-mail Design Within Reach [...]
Do you love art and stuff from the early to mid 20th century ? Well, here is an a/c friendly way to spend your afternoon this weekend: The Art Deco Society of Washington presents Antiques & Modernism Show and Sale . (Thanks, Emily!)*Correction: OK. This is happening next weekend! Oh god. This heat is getting [...]
Did Friday the 13th cause the power outtage and fire on the Dupont and Metro center metro stops today ? Or could it just be Metro and some of the many delays as of late? I thought winter was bad with the hair dryers and ice but apparently these delays are not seasonal. Metro, what [...]
(from SilverDocs.Com, from top “Mechanical Love,” “My Winnipeg,” and “The Betrayal”) D.C. has it’s fair share of thought-provoking film festivals. And, as you may know, Listopad is a big fan (especially if they are free)! We are approaching the mother of all of them — SilverDocs (OK, not FREE but totally worth the price), at [...]
Check out the fab blog Delicious Days for a simple recipe for Pink Grapefruit and Ginger Lemonade. Thirst quenchiest and antidoxidocious.
Ladles and jellyspoons, Mad madness this weekend. You may have seen our Friday, June 13th pick on DailyCandy today–sorry! We really try hard not to do that, but how, how, how could we not remind our lovelies about the opening of gelato swami Dolcezza‘s Bethesda location! We routinely freak out about their sexy flavs. Highlights [...]
We’re going all out, introducing new “features” and “columns” left and right, because summertime brings out the best in us. We’ll be trying to cover music more regularly under the “Music for Lovers” heading, let us know what you think! I’ll try not to gush about Mariah Carey every time I’m going to use this [...]
(from the sweet vintage guide on nymag.com) Trailing behind Kata’s fab neutral post, I present you some male options. Khaki and plaid are not just for preppies anymore (also, can someone tell me what is the definition of “preppy” these days)? It’s a great way to look cool and keep cool during these treacherous D.C. [...]
Welcome to a new column by the girls of Listopad: Street Snaps. I know a lot of blogs do this exact same thing, but we can do it better. Every week we will troll the internet for the best “streetstyle” pictures to share with you. Inagurating the column is this summer nymph from Stockholm Streetstyle:
