GOP soft money clothes laundering

Sarah Palin is now pointing out that what she's wearing is from her "favorite consignment shop in Anchorage Alaska." Are GOP campaign stylists now stocking the store in Alaska? Stocking it for Sarah Palin? Couldn't a consignment collection be the ultimate slush fund in miniature, a wardrobe based on the soft money concept? It's literally political rally wardrobe-laundering! 5393

Sarah Plain, um, Palin

Someone forgot to tell Cindy McCain that the fashion word on Sarah's big night was "populist." Cin's half-peeled banana outfit was examined by the couture analysts at Vanity Fair and the numbers look like this: 4644

I wore polka dots today

...and felt like an idiot. Why? I think polka dots are adorable. They are playful and happy and youthful which are traits I value. And the outfit I had on was classy and cute. So why did I feel anxious that someone might pop over unexpectedly and see my polka dots? I'm not sure, but I changed rather than further contemplate the issue. 3914

An obsession with the boyish figure

Was this magazine ad for Calvin Klein's OBSESSION FOR MEN controversial because it featured an underage Kate Moss disrobed, or because it winked at the greater fashion culture fixation masquerading as the androgynous waif look: the sexualized, pure, although suggestively available, almost shapeless, pretty, prepubescent boy?

Feel Good Imperialism returns

Now that Dubya is in free fall with all his toads, it's time for Feel Good Imperialism to return. And who better to be the general for all the feel goody liberals that like imperialism with a smiley face, than Al Gore, Rock Star? Is this better than the New Life Church, or what? Gore plans to rock against warming, and you can bet there's money to be made by all our newly 'green' corporations. I'm so excited for Mother!

Ladies who lunch: a rebuttal

Eric, I hardly know where to begin. I guess I will leave the analysis of sorority girls alone as I was never one of them, neither were any of my sisters, Iím guessing neither were yours. Iím sure I have a few friends who were but I couldnít tell you who. 732

Sorority girls

I have nothing, nothing, nothing against sorority girls, nor society girls, they're just fine.   I remember sororities at college. They provided camaraderie and support for women in educational institutions that had only comparatively recently become co-ed. And sororities prepped girls for the veneer surface of -- I don't know -- a life of little academic enterprise after college? 654

Youth revisited

(Author's note: this entry has been revised due to the offense taken at its initial publication. It was not intended to make fun of anyone in particular. This article is about the strange cultural pressure for women to look unnaturally young. Woman have always sought to look youthful, but modern medicine now allows them to try for bloomin' youth, except of course around the edges. We need to dissuade women from this folly because plastic surgery has yet to sculpt a feature that can age with you.)   Nicole Richie. What is she selling with this dress? I'm asking because I just attended a society function and this look was everywhere. I don't mean the unwrap- me-my-body-is-a-gift-to-you look. More the faded- beauty-but-I-feel-fresh-as-a-pop-tart- popped-tart look. What is that?   I can imagine these women think that they have to compete with teen porn on the internet. So how're they doing? 648
