on tuesday, ny daily news reported that designer mark fast intended to use plus-size models on the runway during london’s fashion week.

his stylist and creative director quit 3 days before the show.
if the girls pictured are his models, i think he did a rad job, but…what do you think?

I love your clothes. But they don't fit me. Especially now. Because for some reason, the 3 medications I now have to take that I will not be able to live without, I have gone from a size 10 to a size 20 in 10 years. I am not sure what I am going to do. It makes me very upset. There is basically no way to lose weight on these medications, at least not all the way back down to a size 10. I saw your Daisy Lace Dress, the model is 5'9" like me, and she is a size Small. I think I'm a XXL now. And I haven't even had kids yet. Please make your clothes bigger. The fact that they don't fit really hurts. Thanks. -Jen

I totally agree with Sherlyn's word that "A good designer would be someone who can designs clothes that makes EVERYONE pretty. If a dress doesn't look good on plus or regular person, then he/she should NOT be considered a designer." I think this post will definitely helpful for the designers as well as readers like me. Thanks a lot for sharing. Keep blogging.

where does the time go? honestly…
last week we asked you which we the free cover-up you liked best; of the 496 that responded, 237 of you – nearly half of you – liked the wtf silk blazer. :)
i liked that one, too.
onto this week. now that fall is slowly approaching, and we’ve got to think about keeping warm and looking rad, what tights/socks do you like the best? and if you have an opinion as to why, please write and share your thoughts with us! we’d love to know…
let’s start with the double-dye tight

the backseam sheer hose

and then our socks, starting with the mosaic cable over-the-knee

and then the mesh stripe legwarmer, which is more like a footless sock, but…

vote! vote! vote! vote!

AND!!! to boot (no pun intended), we’re offering a special on these items right now…buy 1, get 1 free!!!!!

mesh stripe legwarmers would be soo versatile because they could work as armwarmers or legwarmers, with boots or heels, with jeans or skirt. I really love these........Boo

a few folks from the home office attended lord whimsy‘s terrarium workshop in philly two sundays ago…hosted by jay from arthur mag.
i have yet to make any of the aforementioned, but the class was really inspiring. i kind of want my whole house filled with terrariums…

here’s a little video from the event, too…

i met one of our blogreaders, there, too…if you made your terrarium, share it with us!

another installment from our very own go-to girls about awesome tunes…

kurt vile – god is saying this to you
this comes under the intimidating genre “psych folk” but really it’s just dreamy guitar loops with dylan-esque charm. and here’s a fact for you – that’s kurt vile’s dad on the cover of this album.
brendan benson – my old familiar friend
have a listen to “tiny spark” and tell me you didn’t do a little jig in your chair.
crystal stilts – crystal stilts
the lo-fi sound and super 8 videos have this brooklyn-based group posed as kings of hipster cool, but in a good way.
tune yards – bird brains
ok, there had to be some serious restraint not to totally gush about this band, this album, and in particular this vinyl. it’s not for everyone, but it will definitely make you sit up and listen.
blondie – parallel lines
though this is the band’s third album, it is their most popular by far. it’s the perfect getting-ready, singing-in-the-hairbrush record.
the blasters – the blasters
once a fixture on the LA punk scene, they can now be heard playing in the background of episodes of true blood. they are a complete dichotomy: LA punks with a heart in the bayou. and come on, they toured with queen!
clash – combat rock
last clash album with its’ original line up, combat rock has the band flirting with rap, funk, and reggae, and it even has a cameo by poet allen ginsberg. plus, MIA’s “paper planes” main riff is sampled from the song “straight to hell”.
ella fitzgerald – sings the cole porter song book
this is the first album in ella’s song book series, and the best rainy sunday music that ever existed. *fun fact – it’s one of only 50 recordings chosen by the Library of Congress to be in the National Recording Registry*.
click here for a sampling of the above…enjoy!

Kathlene -Sep 25, 2009, 3:32AM
I'm listening to "Fiya" by the Tune-Yards right now and I love it!
Dez -Sep 23, 2009, 1:13AM
You gals are RAD! I love all of the songs you picked this time around, especially the Kurt Vile and Crystal Stilts tunes...keep em' comin! xx Dez@We The Free
