KelisSpaceshipbyBambus3000 Sunday Times Kelis Interview

Kelis was featured in the Sunday Times and as always had plenty to say. I loved her quote on her feelings about her son…no doubt all our Mommy readers can relate: “I mean, I will literally kill you. If it’s between you and my kid, you do not have a chance.” Haha, so true!

The image featured here is from the the video for her next song, “Spaceship.” Thanks to UltimateKelis for both the pic and the article.

Jack O’connor of J.Crew on How to Shop for Guys

Jack QA front Jack Oconnor of J.Crew on How to Shop for Guys

 Having worked in retail for a very long time I stopped counting the times when you see the guy and his girl shopping together and you can feel the drama  in the air ,  the contradiction of  what she thinks he should wear and what he ’s comfortable with.  Our brother site selectism with the help Ms. Fuller  conducted an insightful in interview of J.crew Stylist Jack O’Connor who sheds some light on the matter:

We’ve all received (and given) bad gifts.

A few months ago we put our lady on the street, Cary Randolph Fuller, to the task of producing a guide for girlfriends (or wives) buying for their men. After some discussion, Ms. Fuller decided that a chat with J. Crew men’s stylist Jack O’Connor would prove fruitful. Below are her words and an insightful (and demystifying) Q&A. Many thanks are due to Ms. Fuller.

Several years ago, to commemorate a special occasion, I bought the (now ex-) boyfriend a pink and navy Ralph Lauren repp tie. At the time I couldn’t understand why he wasn’t thrilled, but age and experience have exposed the error of my ways. (And that error is: Neckties are kind of boring.) These days I steer clear of presents with seams and sizes, preferring to bestow upon the men in my life gifts that cannot be worn. – Cary Randolph Fuller.

I’m not alone. Many women feel lost on the men’s floor. It can be hard to know what men want when a suit is not just a suit but a minefield of subtle intricacies. More often than not, we girls default to the necktie table or slink back to the women’s department with a gift card in hand. He can buy his own damn dress shirts.

Unless…I could enlist the help of Jack O’Connor, stylist for J. Crew’s men’s division and one of New York’s best-dressed. J. Crew has perfected the art of accessible fashion by marrying a well-edited selection of small heritage brands with its own collections. The results are always quirky and unique yet somehow instantly recognizable. To know J. Crew is to know the aesthetic and aspirations of the most stylish men and women. I recently sat down with Jack and his assistant Shawn Buchanan for a little primer on how to shop for the men in my life. Along the way I learned some valuable lessons for every woman who wants to give a gift that keeps on giving – the gift of great style.

Above is a picture of Jack O’Connor. Read Ms. Fuller’s Q&A after the jump.

Valley Spa: Interview with Owner Julia Werman

ValleyJulia Valley Spa: Interview with Owner Julia Werman

Forever and a day I’ve wanted to visit Valley Spa, located in SoHo. Manicures and well done nail art are a very big deal to me and I had a feeling stepping into Valley compared to all the Brooklyn salons I normally visit would feel like a homecoming. And it did.  For downtownistas who have gone form salon to salon like a nomad in search of nail technicians whose aesthetic and product sensibilities are in line with theirs, Valley will hit the spot. Not only are their colors and processes in step with fashion, they hold the same oath as doctors, ”do no harm.” So no acrylic nails or any other product that damages the nails or the nail bed. I tried out a glitter gold, gradiated Cal-Gel process and nine days later I swear to you it is still as perfect as the day I got it. Can you imagine, a manicure lasting so long that you actually grow tired of it?? I can’t (and btw, I’m still not tired of it).

Before, during and after getting my nails done, co-owner Julia Werman (her sister, Nina, is her partner) and I chatted about how business is going, plus hot nails trends and whether or not matte nails are on they’re way in or at. Flip to the next page to read more and see more images, too.
