Ahhh, leather. There’s nothing like the scent of expensive dead animal skin encasing your body or your money and nothing says “I want to dress like a dominatrix everyday!” this Fall than one of the season’s hottest trends. Whether you’re rocking killer boots, a biker hat reminiscent of Mr. Slave, or just that new handbag you’ve been slobbering over all month, now’s the time to invest in key pieces to leather-itize your wardrobe.
I seriously just died. If you’ve got the dirhams to spend, THIS is the piece to get! Not only are these fucking fabulous boots from Stefano Pilati’s last line for YSL, its the last of Yves Saint Laurent until that heretic takes over and changes the name to Saint Laurent Paris. Fuck you, Hedi, fuck you.
I’m totally calm now…
Anyway, like I was saying. Buy these boots, mkai. They’re sexy, slouchy leather with mirrored heels and rose gold accents and as a lifetime investment- they’re not such a horrible price.
This little number is something I, myself, have in black. Although, it comes in lots of fun hooker shades, too, if that’s your thing. At $125, this is a steal and definitely a staple item that basically goes with almost anything.
Throw some tights on under it and a collared shirt for a work look or go bare-legged hussy at da club and look damn fine.
This final piece is for lamos who lack the cojones to wear more leather. A billowy top in emerald green (another big thing this season) silk and chiffon, this Elizabeth And James piece is detailed with a soft leather collar for just a touch of badassness.
Here’s a little video and song to get you into the mood for wearing you’re newly purchased animal hide. Also, maybe avoid vegans, just in case.
UPDATE: Here’s another awesome video to tell you how great you look in leather! Thanks, Matias!
Having a baby is rough, like rougher than that one time in college you got so drunk you passed out in a hallway at a stranger’s house and woke up with dried barf on yourself rough. Imagine that. Imagine squeezing a watermelon out of a lemon-sized opening, then let’s talk.

How fast does time fly when I’m reading a stinking urine-soaked plastic device that tells me I’ve got one in the oven to 7 weeks till blast off?? I don’t know and it’s scary as fuck and confusing as fuck and people are freaking me out because they keep asking who’s coming to help us when she’s born. Resounding answer: NO ONE REALLY.

I’m SO happy to report that almost all of the misery of the first trimester has finally fallen behind me. My energy is back and with no nausea, I’m feeling myself again….just pregnant-er.
It’s a girl! She’s really teeny and moves a lot and likes to kick me which I hope is not a sign that she’s going to be a huge asshole baby- I can say that, it&rsquo... [more]
Being pregnant is fucking hard for a lot women. Whether it’s the physical changes your body endures daily or the mental and emotional hurdles that will blindside you at the drop of a hat, this is a crucial time when life can seem surreal at best. Here’s a quick list of my physical and mental symptoms I’ve experienced so far:-nausea accompanied by vomiting and heightened ... [more]
As evident by the title, there is human life stirring within my bowels. Imagine that. Now try and sleep.
In all seriousness (sort of), I’m officially 14 weeks and two days pregnant and just into my second trimester. Pregnancy is split into trimesters, with a full-term pregnancy at 40 weeks. The first trimester is often the most difficult, not to mention the most uncertain time of ... [more]
