it doesn’t take much effort! really! a tailored coat, some trousers, a scarf maybe if you’re feeling fancy…and a fucking razor blade to the face! seriously, living in portland – aka the ‘beardiest city’ in the states – i’ve come to loathe facial hair. okay, a little 5 o’clock shadow is nice. i like that. wait–i actually prefer that to a bare face. but i’m so sick of beards & mustaches & chops i could just die! and the flannel. for god’s sake, you’re just reinforcing a gross northwest stereotype!
look at these gentlemen. they look clean. and i bet they smell good, too. maybe they won’t buy me a hot dog at the 7-eleven or a pbr at some little sticky dive bar…but damn, are they delicious! a bit preppy, but nice & polished nonetheless:
those little treats there are from the moschino fall 2009 menswear line. like i said before, they’re a little preppy & such…but they look a bit old-britain as well…and we all know how i love british boys!

whilst standing in line at the whole foods the other day, i was perusing the magazine display like i normally would. then in a moment of sheer panic, i spotted the february issue of vogue; i’d let my subscription expire. shame. it’s likely the first issue i’ve missed since i was 17.
of course i bought a copy, & i’m so happy i did… inside the cover are these gorgeous, dare i say immaculate photographs of madonna she did for the new louis vuitton ads. they’re set in what looks to me like a smoky little french bar with checkered floors & cafe chairs. and she’s wearing fishnet tights. what is not to love?
i had to hunt down some photographs to post for you, & in doing so i came across this article from the daily mail. normally i love this british gossip rag, but it made me so pissed that i may have lost all my love & devotion for them. you can read the whole mess in it’s entirety for yourself, but just some snippets from it say that she should ‘put it away’ and that she ‘strikes raunchiest pose ever’. and that’s just the headline.
what the fuck?! these are tasteful, sexy & very covered up, in my opinion. they went on to say that they ‘seemed more lad’s mag than high fashion’. jesus. really? they even said the older she gets ‘the more skin she insists on revealing’. hmm, well there’s hardly any skin revealed in these shots, so whatever. i love them. i love her. fuck the daily mail.
