If it was possible for me to like jeans any more than I do already, take one of my favorite women on earth, Ms Jennifer Herrema of RTX and give her a collab with Volcom. What you get is a collection of fucked up and rad JJ style denim that screams Jen's signature style. There is truly nothing cooler than this. X - Jen
Here, a few of our favorite photos that have been uploaded to our Flickr pool this month. Thanks for all the wonderful submissions! It's so inspiring to see all your work, and keep it coming!
Performing/Guzzling is Kim Gordon's newest book, a gorgeous hardcover volume binding together her audience-inspired watercolors. Absolutely lovely.
Really digging this combo of streaky hair and bright makeup on Alana Zimmer in the latest issue of Flare. Perfect for summer nights!
Nothing screams summer the way I like it (shredding waves) better than David Pu'u's photos. Fun in the sun hasn't had more meaning than it does in all his shots. These are the kind of things I see that really make me want to bleach my hair again. Either way, be sure to spend your summer on the beach, just go early and beat the crowds. X - Jen
Cassie Coane (left) and Clara Balzary (one of our former About a Girls) are lifelong friends, and that friendship's about to be tested! This Thursday, they're setting out to drive Cassie's—admittedly junky—car from Los Angeles to New York, making plenty of stops along the way. Since we're insanely jealous of their adventure, we're going to live vicariously as they live-blog their trip from all the destinations, big and small, they hit as they make their way across the country. Stay tuned—it's bound to be good times for all.
This zine is only $1. Will someone please order it and tell us if it works?
As always with my favorite mags, I'm stoked to see a new issue of Russh is out!!! This magazine is non-stop killing it and every page is more exciting than the next. Pick up your copy on Wednesday and don't forget to check out their rad new blog. X - Jen
When we were little, we totally bitched and moaned about wearing sunscreen and colored zinc oxide was the only kind we liked. And yeah, we still feel pretty much the same, even though now we know we have to wear it. Zinka's rad because it's just like SPF facepaint, and what's not to like about that?
Justin Kemp is doing his part to keep the internet fresh by adding to it. It's pretty genius, as are many of Kemp's other projects, such as "Extinguishing a Scented Candle with Febreze" and "Anticipating Toast Pop Up." Seriously, how bad do you want that toast to pop the fuck up already? (Via Rhizome.)
Veda designer Lindsay Butler grew up in Texas and Argentina, then went to school in New York. She now lives in LA, and her collection is about one universal fashion staple: leather. And lots of it.
With names like Hot Mess, Matte Is Murder, and Fuggen Ugly, Manglaze really is the shit. And the girls are loving it.
YES! This Teamo Morrissey shirt made exclusively for Bona Drag made me smile so big. What could be better than this? Stop trying to track down those old Smiths and Moz tee's and just buy yourself this one. It'll look even better all dirty when you haven't taken it off for two weeks straight. X - Jen
Better late than never.
