My Breakup with ModCloth

Let’s be honest. It can be really tacky to air your relationship laundry out in public. But since my ex has been talking a lot, I needed to say my peace.

RIP Winston. The poster pup passed away recently <3

I have to say, I really didn’t see this day coming. We start off relationships with the best of intentions, and (…)

Feel Beautiful, You’re Allowed!

Really, this post is SEVERAL years in the making. I’ve thought about this concept over the years in different ways; the idea that a woman should be beautiful, but modesty and self doubt are imperative. After watching this video I finally decided to piece it all together.

I’m not a One Direction fan and that shouldn’t be too surprising, because N*Sync and (…)

Feminist Lisa Frank is Everything

A few weeks ago I discovered the Feminist Lisa Frank tumblr. For those of you that haven’t checked it out yet, the title is pretty self explanatory; the adorable pictures of cute animals dipped in neon rainbows, with various feminist quotes accompanying them.

We don’t actually get told too much about the awesome creator of this tumblr, but the description is (…)

I’m a Beyonce voter? Oh, okay!

Hey, anytime you want to put me and Queen Bey in the category I’m down. It wasn’t originally meant to be something positive, *ahem*, I’m looking at you Fox News, but I’ll take it.

Elizabeth Plank handled Republican’s insults and pandering toward women pretty well.

Also, as a reminder. We’ve already seen TONS of sexist commentary about a woman running for president, (…)

Throwing Shade at 50 Shades

  It’s taken me a long time to work out what I wanted to write about “50 Shades,” and to be honest, I still don’t know where to begin. I have so many issues with the story and its popularity, but for now I’ll touch on three things in general.

1) The movie, judged simply as a movie, was fucking terrible. (…)

In lieu of a proper update

Hey everyone!

Due to 60+ hour work weeks I haven’t been able to give JRab the love it deserves, and I plan on remedying that soon. I have the same amount of hours in the day as Beyonce, so I don’t want to make excuses.

Every day I see things that I have an opinion on (shocking, I know) that I would (…)

Well here is another reason to shop ModCloth

 

“Work in Finesse” dress, one of my favorite ModCloth purchases.

For the last few years I’ve been positively obsessed with all things ModCloth, a fashion company with one of its headquarters in my own city of Pittsburgh. Thanks to ModCloth, every single day I can successfully channel Joan from Mad Men, or my personal fashion soul mate, Zooey Deschanel. As I (…)

Date Rape Changy Nail Polish?

Alright, by now a lot of people of heard about Undercover Colors, the nail polish that change color when they come into contact with date rape drugs. “The first fashion company empowering women to prevent sexual assault.”  At first, I felt excited, because anytime someone acknowledges that sexual assault is a big deal and a reality for many women, it’s (…)

Can Katy Perry please catch on next?

It is almost embarrassing how excited I felt after reading this article about Taylor Swift. I’ve been annoyed by Taylor for ages now, despite feeling a certain kinship that I wrote about a few years ago. Her new video was an eye roller to me, what with the whole perpetuating racist stereotypes about black women’s sexuality; crawling under them as they twerked (…)

We should all be feminists. Yeah, you too.

So last week I was alerted by a few different people about this new article  with women listing reasons why they didn’t need feminism. Pretty much immediately, the thread on one of the posts exploded with angry comments from my friends. I decided that while I would indeed do something with this as requested, I needed to wait until the day I (…)
