What Would Mary Want?




Here, we imagine what's on our icons' wishlists this year. 




Mary's staple outfit was hardly practical—short-shorts, tights and platforms, a fruity headddress and three layered T-shirts—but it was still good for shelving books and doing cartwheels.

This sequin bow tops combines two of Mary's favorite things—um, sequins and bows.

This faux-fur coat could go from the library to the club. 

Fake reading glasses to look smarter. 

But earrings that reveal the true self. 

Mary could maybe use this, but if not, then she'd at least use the Dewey Decimal system to file it somewhere. 

For all of Mary's distinguished guests.

Spotlight On: Shades of Grey by Micah Cohen

Micah Cohen in a F/W 2010 design.

29-year-old Micah Cohen likes to joke that the early success of his fairly new line is the result of "beating small children" and borrowing fur from "three-month old puppies," but in reality the L.A. based designer is just a hard worker devoted to one thing: making great, updated classics.



Micah prefers to work with faux fur and pleather options for his Shades of Grey collection so no puppies are harmed in his design process, which includes literally writing out a plan for each design before he even touches a scrap of fabric. While he never designs with a theme in mind, his fall line is piles of richly colored plaids, utility jackets, chambray shirts and cargo pants totally fit for a mountain man (even if said mountain man lives downtown and hates the thought of eating beans from a can).

Revive x Dr Romanelli






After working with the The Work guys with last weeks post, I found out that they had recently worked with one of my favorite local shops: REVIVE, a one of a kind custom urban boutique! If you want to find great custom flat bills, collectible SBs, or some sick customized vest and jackets, then Revive is the place to go. I am extremely picky about my flat bills and Revive won me over my first visit. Dr. Romanelli and Revive have recently collaborated to launch the first of multiple projects paying tribute to the great american metropolis that is Detroit. Both Revive and Dr Romanelli aim to show the world that despite what the media might suggest: Detroit is and always will be a city alive!
Follow Revive on Facebook and see what the guys put out next. -Aren
