Some come together quickly and painlessly, while others take several months of painstaking negotiations between two opposing GMs. Over the past year, we have seen a couple of blockbuster trades get completed that have changed the entire landscape of the NHL.

Jimmy Heath in 10 Tracks

The late Jimmy Heath had a crisp and deliberate sound on the tenor saxophone. His solos and double-and triple timing seemed effortless and never short on ideas. His soprano saxophone was insistent and his flute was divine. His compositions were melodic and sophisticated, and his arrangements were engaging, always taking the listener's short attention span into consideration. Though his name wasn't as big a brand as Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Hank Mobley or Stan Getz, Jimmy would likely have ...

Whose Idea Were These Terrible Birkenstock Boots?

First came the most expensive frock on the Oregon Trail. Then came the uglass skants (skirt pants). And now I’m convinced that fashion designers are just trolling us on purpose to entertain themselves, because look at this mess. What in the tacky ass caucasery hell is this?!? Birkenstock has gone TOO FAR. As if those sandals weren’t bad enough. Now they’ve been turned into *gasp* BOOTS! These bastards have the nerve to cost $329 too.

Meghan Markle Just Wore This Affordable Brand for Lunch With the Queen

The Meghan Markle effect is so powerful, that yesterday she managed to cause a frenzy about a dress by only showing a slither of the fabric on her shoulder. Quite the achievement. Meghan attended her first Christmas lunch with the royal family yesterday, and was photographed in the front seat of a car on her way into Buckingham Palace. You might only be able to see her outfit from the shoulders upwards, but Meghan fans quickly noted that she is wearing a midi dress from Self Portrait.

summer camping

We just got back from camping at Lost Lake and it was so beautiful and so fun. This was our first time there. I know many families go there every year so I was warned it was really busy. It was, but by Monday it was more mellow and we had our pick of watercraft to rent and we made the most of it. We stayed in tents and walked in, which was wonderful because it felt very isolated, but it did aggravate the stress fracture in my foot that I had gotten the previous weekend at the beach, that I was...

8 Ways to Wear Comfy Shoes & Still Look Super Stylish

Because hobbling around campus in uncomfortable shoes is THE WORST. Photo Credit: Elle.com I was four days into my New York City trip when I gave in. I can’t do this anymore, I thought as I hobbled back to my hotel room after a long day. Every tearful step back to my room made me want to throw my helplessly cute, but uncomfortable, high heeled booties into the street. The next morning, I promptly marched to Fifth Ave and bought myself a pair of Birkenstocks. This was the first pair of Birks I ...

10 Things I've Bought Because Of Instagram

I'm just going to go out there and say it: I prefer shopping on Instagram to shopping in-store or online. Hear me out. On the social media app, there's no million tabs or pages to scroll through; it allows me to see the pieces styled in a real way, on a real person (not a fit model), and I can often click through directly to the item I like through the brand's page, rather than aimlessly searching the web and not really falling in love with anything.Whether it's a blogger who styled a piece in ...

Birkenstocks vs. Chacos

Which one should be your go-to summer sandal? Hopefully by now you've finished your finals, packed up your dorm, and have headed home for a much needed summer break. It's time to relax, maybe work, and have fun with the warm weather. Recently I've been seeking out a pair of sandals I can wear for the whole summer, so I'm willing to make an investment.

Link Love: A Footwear Report

The Business of Fashion explains why shoe startups are making sneakers from wool. I enjoyed reading how these Italian women have moved into the decidedly out-of-fashion trade of the shoe-shining business, once exclusively the domain of men, and made it hip. Meet Tom Lonergan, the Birkenstock doctor. This sixty-something retiree living in Ohio saw his mail order Birkenstock’s repair business double in orders two years ago. I chuckled reading this: “As for Lonergan, he’s not too worried that a new...
