Just last week, Funk moved from the original 1,300-square-foot space in D.C. to one more than twice the size that features a dedicated place for community activism. "People needed a place to come, to sit and to cry," she said. She has her eye on opening in spots like Asheville, N.C., or Austin, Texas, pockets of blue in seas of red. … [Read more...] about The Outrage: Where fashion, feminism and resistance meet
The previews for “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” Netflix’s new take on Archie Comics’ teen witch Sabrina Spellman, look spooktacularly American Gothic, down to the white Peter Pan colors and shirt dresses worn by star Kiernan Shipka in the title role. The series, which begins streaming Friday, Oct. 26, has departed radically from Melissa Joan Hart’s sunny take on the teenage witch almost 20 years ago. But in a world of television awash in Ryan Murphy high-concept art direction and the brooding styles of the teens on “Riverdale,” it’s no surprise the fashion in the new series looks like Charles Addams’ illustrations (“The Addams Family”) as interpreted by fashion designer Raf Simons. As Sally Draper on AMC’s “Mad Men” and Bette Davis’ daughter dearest B.D. on “Feud,” Shipka learned how to work a period costume. We’re excited to see how the show balances teenage preppy classics … [Read more...] about Sabrina and 14 other chilling fashion witches in pop culture
When I met Devon Lee Carlson outside of a concert a couple weeks ago, she talked to me as if we were best friends. We bonded over our outfits, phone cases and dogs. One thing that she said that stuck out to me was: “I definitely did not peak in high school.” Co-founder of the popular Wildflower Cases, model and vlogger, Carlson has developed quite the following over the past couple of years. With an electric personality and an astonishing fashion sense, it is hard not to be intrigued by her style, appeal and charm. In her Youtube videos and Instagram posts, Carlson connects to her viewers by bringing them along for her daily routine. I challenged myself to channel Carlson in my daily life. To embody her successfully, I had to do my research — which consisted of binge-watching her vlogs on loop and endlessly scrolling through her Instagram for inspiration. To ease myself in, I started with skincare. I broke my normal hygiene habits, showered in the morning and spent … [Read more...] about What Would Devon Do?
Copper coins, sunshine and responsible daytime drinking once again coalesced in North Beach at the 41st Penny Pitch, the beloved annual fundraiser for St. Anthony’s. This Ess Eff tradition was founded by late restaurateur and loyal St. Anthony’s supporter Ed Moose at his former Washbag restaurant. When he opened Moose’s, the Pitch moved across Washington Square Park to Stockton Street. Later, MoMo’s hosted the fun. But now, the Pitch is back in the Beach. Led by event chairs Meagan Levitan, her husband, St. Anthony’s trustee Dale Carlson, and honorary chairwoman Mary Etta Moose, with emcee extraordinaire Brian Murphy (of KNBR’s “Murph & Mac” Show), a lively battle ensued among 22 teams during an alfresco afternoon atop a Green Street parking lot next to Chief Sullivan’s — the official clubhouse for 160 guests. “Penny Pitch has always been about having fun while doing good,” said St. Anthony’s Director … [Read more...] about St. Anthony’s Penny Pitch returns to North Beach
