A coming-of-age story about pants

By Marisa Demarco [ Fri Mar 23 2012 12:40 PM ]

The fashion bloggers at BurqueStyle have embarked upon an age-old endeavor.

You see, there comes a time in every young jerk’s life, when one might want to get the kind of job where clothes matter a little.

No, for serious

By Marisa Demarco [ Tue Feb 14 2012 2:29 PM ]

Most fashion writing bugs me. It’s usually snippy, sexist, classist, racist and, above all, anti-local. Women are the primary targets of criticism, everything is absurdly expensive, and white people fashion is the right fashion. Experts usually espouse advice in line with national trends that have nothing to do with your area.

And as we all know, ours is a region with identity.

Hipster animal prediction: 2013 will be the year of the whale

By Marisa Demarco [ Fri Dec 30 2011 12:16 PM ]

Squirrels are coming. In 2012, expect your bars to be named after them, your bands to use them on fliers and album covers, your coffee cups, T shirts and lighters to display them. Expect twentysomethings and early thirtysomethings to wear them on necklaces and earrings. Someone, somewhere, will get a squirrel tattoo.

Owls dominated 2011.

Missoni for Target stuff unleashed today

By Jessica Cassyle Carr [ Tue Sep 13 2011 1:49 PM ]

Missoni’s heavily marketed=highly anticipated line of wares for big box retailer Target hit the shelves/internet today. The brouhaha was so intense, it crashed Target’s website. Admittedly, I kind of want some tumblers ... but think most of the merch is a little tacky.

This is for real. Now let’s bring extremely pointy boots to New Mexico and combine it with planking. We’ll call it “pointing.”

Fashion and Charity

By Sharla Biefeld [ Thu May 19 2011 4:41 PM ]

At first glance Princess Beatrice's tea rose hat looks like a Cindy Lou Who hairdo. Don't be fooled, this is no Dr. Seuss invention, but a design by Philip Treacy.

The extravagant hat worn by Princess Beatrice to the royal wedding between Prince William and Catherine Middleton, got almost as much attention as the wedding itself. The hat inspired mockery, admiration and even a Facebook page. Now Beatrice is giving up the head piece to help benefit children's charities. The bidding on eBay.com, which began this week, has now reached more than $35,000.

Raising a stink over TOMS shoes

By Melody Daskalos, fearless intern [ Thu May 12 2011 9:00 AM ]

So, I bought a pair of TOMS about three months ago, very enthused to be a supporter of the company's One for One campaign: For every pair you buy, another is given to a child in need. Pretty good deal, right? At around $55 for brand-new, high-design shoes, I thought so.

And the San Pellegrino wears Missoni

By Jessica Cassyle Carr [ Tue Nov 16 2010 12:01 PM ]

The most chichi water ever bottled has found its way onto shelves at Whole Foods on Carlisle. San Pellegrinofor some reasonteamed up with Missonithe Italian fashion house most famous for knitwear that features brightly-colored zigzag patterns. The designer water has been available since this summer, yet, I’m guessing, it’s late arriving in Albuquerque. As usual. A bottle of this limited edition water now lives in my humble refrigerator. See Lea, Perrins and Mr. Tapatio quiver with inferiority.
