I’ve seen this around a few times and tried it on today. It is nice and I want it. It’s definitely on the expensive side at $1200 and there’s no way I’ll be able to afford it but it would be great for all my urban hunting excursions in Nolita. Here’s more crap that I want: Yuketens, Jack Spade Stuff, Some other Stuff, and the Post Index.
RAG & BONE BE TUMBLIN'
Attention kids, Rag & Bone’s tumblr is all poppin’ with photos from their 2nd DIY campaign. Oh Rag & Bone, you had me at hello.
WHAT WOULD DAENERYS TARGARYEN WEAR?
I don’t know where to begin with Daenerys Targaryen. I don’t even know where to begin with Game of Thrones. When we first meet DT, she’s young, weak and under the control of her punk-ass brother. After marrying Khal Drogo, king of the Dothraki, she becomes Khaleesi, queen of the Dothraki. This new role changes her and she transforms from a weak girl into a dragon-lady....
RALPH LAUREN SPRING 2012
As many of you know, The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite novels. I’ve styled the characters several times here and Daisy Buchanan is easily in my top posts. Last week at the Ralph Lauren show, I couldn’t help but think of the East Egg and West Egg gang. All the clues were there—detailing, feathers, drop-waists and lots of movement. If you’ve been a follower of Textbook...

What Would Irene (Personified) Wear?
I ditched the city for Connecticut this weekend and on the way to dinner my family started asking me what I thought Irene would wear if she was you know, not a hurricane. Right away, I played the Rodarte card and then started thinking some Prabal Gurung—sort of that Miss Havisham whirling mess type, ya know. Later on, Prabal Gurung actually tweeted to ask if his followers thought...
sistertiger asked: what about the count of monte cristo, mr darcy, fanny price, oliver twist, marianne dashwood, david copperfield or mr. rochester?
WHAT WOULD ELEANOR OF AQUITANE WEAR?
Hello Textbook people, I’m glad to be back, work has been crazy lately but hey, it pays my bills. Here we have Eleanor of Aquitane, basically the most bitchin’ badass woman of medieval times. Eleanor was a highly educated, strong willed and fiercely political. When she was 15, she became Queen of France and traveled to fight in the second crusade. Yup, she fought in the crusades,...
@CONDEELEVATOR, AN UNCONFESSION
My first and last word on @CondeElevator.
What Would Viola Wear?
Shakespeare is always good for a character post, so let’s take a look at Twelfth Night. Like many of his works, Twelfth Night is all about mistaken identities, disguise, humor and of love triumphant. Hooray! The heroine of the story is Viola, who is wrecked on the shores of Illyria, governed by Duke Orsino. Separated from her twin brother, she disguises herself as a man named Cesario and comes...
What Would Countess Bathory Wear?
Countess Bathory was a serious woman. She ran one of the wealthiest family’s in ye olde Hungary, was a devoted mother, clothes horse and serial killer. How ever did she manage it all? Such a modern woman. Of course, time weighs on us all and it weighed particularly heavy on our dear countess. As she grew older, she became obsessed with beauty and maintaining a youthful visage. Perhaps it...
PNEUMONIA WHITE, WORTH THE READ
I heard about Pneumonia White a few weeks ago through e-mail. It’s a pretty sick personal style blog from L.A. The photography is weird, the writing is spooky but it’s all in a good way. Not to mention she dresses in some serious designers. According to her bio, she lives in “Secret Hollywood” and is currently taking up residence in an old house in Bel Air, left to her...
What Would Mr. Ripley Wear?
The Talented Mr. Ripley tells the tale of a man who becomes obsessed with wealth, power and his friend. The book begins in New York, where down-on-his-luck Tom Ripley is approached by the wealthy Mr. Greenleaf to help him find his son, Dickie. Tom, an acquaintance of Dickie agrees to help. He soon finds himself in London forming a friendship with Dickie and his girlfriend, Gwyneth Paltrow....
