NYC (AND BEYOND): CRUMPLED TWENTY

The Best Link Today:

Well, I obviously couldn't ignore The Pipeline's post about 12 Spring Dresses under $200 (even though under $2 would be more in my price range at the moment–poor, poor POCKET LINT).  Word play!  Get it?  Poor?  I still got it, after all these years.

Anyway, lots of cute stuff, including the (above right) Colour Block Dress from Top Shop, which I love the most!  (Oh, the Brits and their colours.) Not to mention a Fred Flare Blue Button Bustier dress, which I saw almost exactly replicated in yellow at Forever 21 this weekend at Le Grove for $17.80.

Well, I may end up wearing a Forever 21 shopping bag as a dress this season, if things don't pick up. But you all should grab the frocks listed here and think of me as you meander, cutely down the street.

Except the male POCKET LINT readers.  You guys should not meander cutely down the street in dresses.  I mean, I guess to each his own.

LA/NYC (AND BEYOND): CRUMPLED TWENTY

The Best Link Today:

This may seem a little pathetic to you naysayers and haters out there, who just don't get it, but I was (and remain) a loyal Gilmore Girls fanatic. Yeah. I said it.  Without (much) shame.  So, when I saw Refinery 29's image of Alexis Bledel as Rosie The Riveter, you know I just had to peek.

Turns out Glamour's 70th Anniversary issue features an "American Icons" spread for which they've dressed up a bunch of young starlets as feminist (or at least prominent) figures in history.  I have a hard time with Hayden Panettierieclothbathrobe.  She just BUGS for some reason (grrrr–it's me, not you), but once I got through an image of her as Amelia Earhart (and a slightly uncomfortable image of Emma Roberts as Audrey Hepburn cause there's like zero resemblance and it sort of makes Emma seem coarse), I was rewarded with images of America Ferrera as Dolores Huerta, Paula Patton as Billie Holiday, Elisha Cuthbert as soccer player Brandi Chastain in the first Women's World Cup and Alicia Keys as Michelle Obama (which I guess is a little odd cause Michelle is so current, but still sweet).  Even The Lohan as Madonna kinda works.  Glamour, more than a lot of other mags, emphasizes women's issues, which is cool.

Side note: Refinery's Pipeline also mentioned that Echo Park's Show Pony is going out of business after this weekend.  So sad, but I guess this is the way of the moment.  Worth stopping by, I'm sure:)

Now, I'm going to watch old Felicity, My So-Called Life and Gilmore Girls episodes and sulk.  Toodles.

P.S. Isn't the Internet great?  Now I know there are other lunatics like me, who actually created some of these sites.  YAY us!!!!

P.P.S.  What's your favorite canceled show??
