Here’s some more posts on Esquire.com and some other stuff: James Dean, Beau Brummell, Max (Where the Wild Things Are) and the Post Index
WHAT WOULD VERUCA SALT WEAR?
Everybody has come across a Veruca Salt in their lives. You know the type: bitchy, rich and ungrateful. Makes me mad just thinking about it. You’ll remember Veruca from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, she’s the greedy brat that always wants more. First she wants a golden ticket, then she wants a golden goose then she starts yammering on about some bean feast and 10,000 tons of ice...
Taking suggestions for a new character post, who would you guys like to see? I respect your admiration for The Hunger Games but haven’t read them so let’s keep the Katniss requests to a minimum. Thanks.
MIU MIU MOSAIC
Look at them shoes dance. Dance shoes, dance! Miu Miu shoes via Net-a-Porter.
elegantswagger asked: Where did you find the original disney stories? I'm searching but they're all really close to the disney version without the creepy gore vibe.
WHAT WOULD CLAUDIA THE FOREVER-CHILD-VAMPIRE WEAR?
So, knowing how big of a fan of Twilight I am, this post has been a long time coming. Like Bram Stoker’s vampires, Anne Rice’s are pretty badass. One of the the most interesting is Claudia. Unlike the rest of her kind, Claudia was made a vampire before she was an adult which leaves her to be a child for eternity. At first, that’s cool and her vampire fathers Lestat and Louis...
WHAT WOULD ALEXA CHUNG WEAR?
Another day, another Fashionista.com post. This one is tumblr superstar and dashboard frequenter, Alexa Chung. Click over to Fashionista.com to see the whole thing. Would you like to see some more? I have more, isn’t that great? Textbook for Fashionista: Edie Sedgewick, Textbook for Fashionista: Costello Tagliapietra, Textbook for Fashionista: Abbey Lee Kershaw, The Post Index
JACK SPADE X COCA COLA
By now, you probably know that I’m a big fan of Jack Spade. I’d wager to say that most of my wardrobe is from there and although a hefty amount of that came from when I worked there, I’m still pretty loyal. Another brand I’m loyal to? Coca-cola, because this is America and I am an American. True, I may fancy a Pepsi every now and then but you can’t have a burger...
WHAT WOULD PRINCESS ZELDA WEAR?
Princess Zelda is the HBIC of Hyrule. Together with Link, she must protect the kingdom from Ganon, the evil wizard/pig. This time, I decided to focus in on Zelda during The Ocarina of Time which remains to be one of my favorite video games to date. When we first meet Zelda she is young and becomes childhood friends with Link. Naturally, when we travel forward in time, she is older and wiser. She...
WHAT WOULD LYDIA DEETS WEAR?
Lydia Deets is one of my favorite apathetic characters ever. Having watched Beetlejuice many times in my childhood, I like to think that her general negative attitude toward everything rubbed off on me. I can only my children grow up with the same pessimistic outlook. Anyway, Lydia finds herself stuck in Connecticut with her frantic mother and simple father. Little do they know, their new home...
WHAT WOULD LUNA LOVEGOOD WEAR?
Everybody knows a Luna Lovegood type, they’re that one quirky friend you have that you sometimes wish would stop talking but at the same time, you never want them to shut up. Well, maybe that’s a little harsh, let’s leave it at your one quirky friend. Of course, when it comes to Harry Potter, there is much more to Luna than meets the eye and she becomes instrumental in bringing...

WHAT WOULD DOMINIQUE FRANCON WEAR?
Dominique Francon is the heroine of The Fountainhead and seems to be the only woman in the world made for the protagonist and architect Howard Roark. Likewise, he seems to be the only man for her. You know, it’s funny, both Howard and Dominique have this contempt for people around them. They feel like nobody measures up to their own personal standards of design or of life. Yet somehow,...
WHAT WOULD HOWARD ROARK WEAR?
Do you know before I became the world’s leading rhythmic gymnast, I really wanted to be an architect? The design of buildings always held an interest for me, from historical architecture, to Bauhaus, to post-modern crap. Howard Roark, the protagonist of The Fountainhead and I share this love. Like many people, he suffers for his work. Howard finds it difficult to work after he graduates....
