Fast forward

JASON-WU-SS12
February is around the corner and many of us are ready for change come the new moon. With February often comes ‘the fast’ from vices that became frequent indulgences during the festive season. The most common of these – coffee, sugar and alcohol – usually top the list. Here’s what to expect should you choose to say goodbye to them for 28 days. “Consider this a time to learn new ways to relax and to enjoy being social. Take your wind down with a walk, swim, stretch or meditation.” Coffee Initially there’s chance of headaches, irritability, tiredness, change in mood, and feeling like something is missing from your routine. Stick with it – this only lasts two to three days and then your...

Reimagining Modernist Architecture with Ricardo Alcaide

362211
When it comes to image-making, to introduce a kind of interruption to one’s creative output does not spring to mind as a typical objective. Ricardo Alcaide’s series Intrusions, however, has this ethos at its heart. The Venezuelan artist has created this series by placing brightly coloured angular shapes – though a couple of the ‘intrusions’ are made of cardboard and wood – over the top of photographs of modern mid-century structures and interiors rendered in black and white. While the sometimes-gargantuan shapes are certainly central to the images, they somehow do not feel too out of place, fostering an air of intrigue and imagination: the viewer is left desperate to see through the shapes, easily drifting into daydream to muse on what...

Vintage-Lovers Are Going to Lose Their Minds Over This Website

54bc856a5a6b4e04_PostGraphic-3images-728x728-border
I have a confession: I've been hiding one of my favorite new decor sites from you because I didn't want shopping competition. I selfishly kept EBTH — short for Everything but the House — all to myself, checking the site daily, following coveted items, and marveling at the trove of treasures extracted from dusty basements and placed literally at my finger tips: vintage campaign dressers, card catalogues, depression-era glass, Picasso lithographs, and more. So what is EBTH? In short, it's an online estate sale. At length, it provides vintage-lovers with unprecedented access to a curated, verified selection of estate goodies from across over the country, all sold through seven-day auctions with a $1 starting price. As if access to these great...

The Women’s March in Photos

According to the L.A.Times, early estimates indicate that as many as half a million people have shown up today to take part in the Women's March. And that's in D.C. alone. Worldwide, women, men, and children are marching in solidarity for women's rights, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual orientation.

Their march and their message is historic, and below, some of the most powerful images from the day.

Three Instagram Accounts Documenting Women on Screen

362288
Undeniably, cinema is still very much a boys club – and the representation of women on screen is habitually reflective of this unfortunate fact. Whether we are depicted through a male lens of pity, malice or hysteria – or, the dire ‘manic pixie dream girl’ trope (see Audrey Tautou in Amélie or Zooey Deschanel in basically anything) – we are so oft cinematically presented as entirely one-dimensional beings. The following three Instagram accounts seek to remedy this predicament, either by celebrating traits that are inherently ‘feminine’ on our own terms, or depicting nuanced female characters in film who extend beyond a tired portrayal. The resulting feeds are rich with incredibly relatable filmic imagery, which will entice your index finger into tapping the...

3 Ways to Decorate (and Organize) Your Foyer in the New Year

output_jSLUU1

You ask quite a lot from your foyer: It has to look good because it’s the first thing your house guests see, and it’s a welcoming space for you to come home to. But it also has to handle stacks of mail, piles of shoes, coats, key holders and your grocery totes… so it has to be organized AF. That’s a lot to ask from a space that’s sometimes not much bigger than a hallway. This week’s edition of Decor Resolutions will show you how to style your foyer to make it beautiful AND functional, whether you’re going for a boho-chic vibe, a minimalist look or a preppy style.

The Pussyhat Is An Imperfect, Powerful Feminist Symbol That Thousands Will Be Wearing This Weekend In DC

1484665430-static1squarespace
The weather is supposed to be unusually warm in Washington, D.C. this weekend, but over 60,000 women are expected to show up there in knitted "pussy power" hats, anyway. Festooned in cat ears and crafted from hot pink yarn, the hats are the creation of Krista Suh and Jayna Zweiman, friends who wanted to come up with just one more way for women to announce their opposition to Donald Trump's election. Suh, a screenwriter in Los Angeles, said she wanted to turn her despair over Hillary Clinton's loss into a positive contribution to the then-nascent protest over the inaugural weekend. "Honestly, I would have stripped naked for it if that would have been impactful," she says. But knowing that temperatures in D.C....

The Wedding Colors Of Spring 2017

Curating your wedding's décor, tablescapes and overall aesthetic starts, first and foremost, with color (or lack there of). But tastemakers and trendsetters are understandably tired with the idea of wedding color themes–and we're the first to admit they can start to feel gimmicky. In planning her wedding, BAZAAR.com's Editor Joyann King steered clear of a palette altogether. "One thing that I really felt strongly about is I just didn't want a wedding with a color scheme–just stop it with the color schemes," she says. "I mean, color can exist around us, but I don't want to just pick navy and fuchsia and have a navy/fuchsia wedding." That theme-like feeling of a two-dimension color palette can easily feel dated, and colors...

These Mysterious Light Pillars Are Ridiculously Stunning and Magical

landscape-1484325943-yn8arvx
Usually when your kid wakes you up at 1:30 a.m. all you want tell them to do is please go back to sleep. But Timothy Joseph Elzinga, of North Bay, Ontario, was happy that his two-year-old son Gibson woke him up crying the other night because otherwise he wouldn't have been awake to notice these amazing lights — called light pillars — in the sky. "It looked like someone from Star Trek was trying to beam people up," Elzinga told CBC News. "It was very bright in person, like nothing I've ever seen. It almost seemed supernatural." Elzinga, who runs the Youtube channel Timmy Joe, posted this video explaining how this fascinating phenomenon works along with footage from the night he shot...
