Do you ever wonder who makes your clothes? Buttons the Cat is back to explain how things work.
Fashion has always projected images of beauty for women to follow, but maybe it’s time to stop looking to fashion for what we think is ideal… Read more>>
It’s nice to know that somethings never change, and it’s so lovely returning to a place where every item and detail has a story to tell. Read More>>

This year’s installment featured music by local-ish bands like Matt & Kim, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, the Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Early Greyhound, among other acts…. READ MORE >>
As some of you may have noticed, Eliza has been going a bit batty for Earthships. As some of you may have not noticed, she sneaked a very real hyperlink into her last very imaginative post. That link led to a website, where we discovered that Earthships are actually attainable–film icons and mad scientists not included… READ MORE>>
It never ceases to amaze me that after living in the same neighborhood in Brooklyn for 10 years, I still find things that I’ve never discovered before! For instance, today I was at McCarren Park, in Williamsburg Brooklyn, strolling around the track with my sister, when I noticed a peciliar, lovely little clump of woodland trees that were fenced in with an odd little rickety fence. I walked over to the gate to peer into what appeared to be a secret garden. On the other side of the gate were shady woodland ferns and wild flowers, fig and cherry trees, antique birdbaths, a tiny vegetable garden and neat little paths… Read More>>
“You can’t think so hard about being fearless, I guess! My doodles started on the edges of my school textbooks and scrap pieces of paper and now they’ve become synonymous with my style. They’re something I don’t really think about -they kind of just do themselves! It’s great to be able to do them on a larger scale and to think that they might stop someone, even if it’s just for a moment.”…. READ MORE>>
Last night, I took my LBD out for a well-loved NYC tradition. The Public Theater’s Shakespeare in the Park series has been a summer staple in Central Park for 56 years, with the company performing two Shakespeare plays in repertory for the duration of the summer. And get this: the tickets are absolutely free…. READ MORE>>
It’s the last Sunday in June, which in New York City means it’s Gay Pride Day. For the gay and lesbian community its an opportunity to be proud of who they are and strut their stuff. For the spectators, its a day to show support and to come and watch quite a show of costumes, dancing, and music. I headed to the Pride Parade to see if the girls and boys could still “Bring it”.

When Bright Young Things designer Eliza Starbuck and the BYT street team met the press for the official launch of the LBD on Thursday, the evening naturally became one big dress up session. How could it not?
Last weekend, some of the Bright Young Things street team waltzed around the Renegade Craft Fair at McCarren Park in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The day was hot and sticky, but in the shade of the tents the pickings were excellent. Here are a few of our favorite finds… Read More>>
The roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art currently resembles something closer to an Asiatic forest of mythic proportions than the deck of an eminent institution. Big Bambú, the massive installation by the identical-twin artists Mike and Doug Starn, towers fifty feet over the roof deck, sporting a winding walkway that visitors may climb all the way to it’s upper reaches. The catch? Big Bambú is made from nothing more than bamboo poles and bits of brightly colored nylon rope….Read More>>
The Bright Young Things Street Team went looking for some fashion inspiration at The Brooklyn Museum of Art, “American High Style” Exhibit. And here’s what we found… Read More>>
From the street, the High Line looks like an abandoned industrial relic, a bit of structural debris fallen from functionality, and forgotten. And it was, until this past June when a grassroots campaign of New Yorkers, having successfully lobbied the City, reclaimed the blighted platform and opened High Line Park… Read More>>
