For those of you who don’t know, the mega amazing vforrestal runs this thing called projecttiara as a way to celebrate every small victory and make the world a more sparkly place. (here’s her blog post on it if you’re interested)
awhile ago, I submitted my victory as getting asked to co-un-chair the CurateCamp (here is the Wiki with all the collaborative google docs from sessions yesterday) and received this beautiful unicorn cat princess tiara this morning. Complete with a Shiny Unicorn horn. Val, you (and your mom!!!) have outdone yourself. This is the most amazing thing I could have ever found on my desk this morning (AND I also had a sweet note from kateordie sorry kate the tiara won) and thank you, thank you, thank you val for being the most amazing and thoughtful.

We roadtested Black Milk leggings to see if they’re worth the price

Purchasing and Unpackaging

For this test, I decided to try one of Black Milk Clothing’s most popular products, the Mass Effect N7 Wet Look Leggings. With conversion fees, the leggings will cost buyers in the United States around $78.78—quite an investment for some geeky nylon! A quick search on Amazon.com shows a copycat version for much cheaper made by Pink Queen Apparel, Inc., with a description almost the same as Black Milk’s. It even throws the word “black” into the product title: “Pink Queen Hot Stylish Black Mass Effect N7 Wet Look Digital Print Leggings Tights.”

The leggings pictured on both websites look similar enough to make it seem worth the chance of going for the cheaper pair. The Pink Queen leggings are an affordable $19.99 after all, so why not?

Our favorite part of the Met Gala was the Tumblr fanart

When Tumblr fans got their hands on the glamorous looks their favorite celebs were sporting, many of them did more than just sing praises or criticize what they were wearing. Some of them, particularly a number of Tumblr’s fashion designers and artists, responded with gorgeous fanart.

Here are a few of our favorites.

deviantART clarifies it doesn’t sell artists’ work after Hot Topic steals fanart for a t-shirt
It looks like this particular piece of art made its way onto a Hot Topic t-shirt without any input from deviantART. The illustration on the shirt even includes the artist’s signature from the work on the deviantART page, and the original artist, J.J. Harrison, already commented to say that it was used without permission.

The ad campaign feels like a call to arms for plus-size women to stand up and demand to be recognized, not just by more mainstream brands, but the fashion industry as a whole.

Burke told the Daily Dot she’s excited about being the face of Torrid and is looking forward to getting into stores to meet customers. The 23-year-old’s journey to becoming a plus size model started with having trouble fitting in as a kid. Burke turned to equestrian competition to build up her confidence and found friends in the sport who happened to be modeling in the fashion industry. Familiar with what her friends went through, Burke wasn’t surprised when she was asked whether she wanted to be plus size or lose weight for a straight size when approached to model herself. Burke decided she wanted to stay the way she was.
