EXTRA SPECIAL EXCLUSIVE CONTENT!
Okay, I oversold that with my best used car salesman typeface.
But I’m here to share something exciting that I typically reserve for my loyal gang of email subscribers. It’s a master list of what I’m reading, listening to and watching.
Each month (or more if I’m feeling prolific) I send a round-up of content with a little editor’s letter. At the end, I always include links to what I’ve devoured across the ether when I was either 1) at a loss for my own words (a rare occurrence if you know me) or 2) devouring an entire bag of popcorn and looking for an activity that didn’t involve typing at the same time.
Basically, it’s stuff I wish I wrote or created but am, nevertheless, stoked to share with you and spread the knowledge! Most of it is fashion or eco-related, some is just plain fun. This week, I collaborated with Scout (ICYMI – fab summer intern) to bring you a list that’s twice as nice.

It will take a savage to combat sizeism, especially in lingerie. Leave it to Rihanna.
The People v. Zara. A skinnies and sandals saga.
I’m drunk and high at the same time, drinkin’ champagne on the airplane. Or these new cocktails.
Will feeding your cat toona save the earth? I never thought I’d get into the biometric data of a cat or dog, but this article did it for me.
*Long form alert* Read this book if you’ve ever thought, “How does one actually go about sitting and emptying the mind?” Sakyong Mipham gives you a play-by-play for meditation.
Fashion Journalism isn’t dying. These folks are dedicated to rigorous standards and industry evolution. Episode 181.
My Dad Wrote A Porno. Because it’s important to balance your serious news with a heady laugh. A special thanks to Ethical Unicorn for recommending these witty Brits. They’ve become my new car companions.
Seriously, zilch but retro Anthony Bourdain episodes and YouTube guides to wine regions. But I think that’s a good sign of productivity and – dare I say – sanity?
On my future watch list: Social Fabric
Oh, but I did abuse my new Moviepass subscription. Go see American Animals and Sorry to Bother You.
My passions for costume design and conscious fashion collide in Clint Ramos’ amazing work for Broadway’s Once on this Island. (I actually cried when I saw the costume for Asaka, Earth Goddess. It’s the last costume he explains, and it’s worth the long read.)
99% Invisible. It’s my favorite podcast right now! Learn the fascinating design history of film sound (“Sounds Natural”), all the female statues in NYC (“Miss Manhattan”), and birth control receptacles (“Repackaging the Pill”).
So many amazing classics at my favorite Austin theater, Austin Film Society. Check out The Big Heat (a 1953 noir) and Grand Hotel (a 1932 drama) for the vintage fashion looks of your dreams. I second what Kasi said- go see Sorry to Bother You, and don’t let the third act twists throw you too much. There’s a lot to take from this film, insane or otherwise.
