INDIE REWIND: 10 Stoner Style Don’ts for 420

Edited by

To quote a famous poet, “I got the Rolly on my arm and I’m pourin’ Chandon/ And I roll the best weed ’cause I got it goin’ on.” Yes, we can all have it going on this April 20th, just the way his High Holy Snoopness intended it. 420 is like stoner Christmas — the holidaze to end all holidaze. You’re likely to see these mavericks of marijuana — these Wizards of Weedly Place, these potentates of pot intake — wandering the streets and haunting 7-11′s the world over, as out of touch as their wardrobes. Granted, the garden variety stoner is not what one would call a fashionista, but if they can they lift their dreadlocked heads from the sweet, sweet lips of their bong to take a look in the mirror, they can avoid these few style missteps and look as fly as they feel.

Shop New, New York: Cloak & Dagger Opens Brooklyn

Edited by

Brookelynn takes Brooklyn. Brookelynn Starnes owns the already adorable East Village shop Cloak and Dagger, and she just opened her new locale in Boerum Hill. Stocked with seriously cool pieces, she serves up the best Karen Walker and Tsubi sunnies, Verameat jewelry, Lauren Moffatt capes – basically all the indies you crave. The exposed brick and crown moulding give the petite shoppe a homey feel, and the sleek selection makes you want to wear everything right out of the store. Like this Shelter backpack I bought on opening night, that is now cruising the Caribbean with me.

Ditch the Coat, Take a Cape

Edited by

This is a call to arms, to remove them from the narrow shafts of coat sleeves. Let them live with the rest of the body underneath a cape or a drape. The shape is free and flowing, the cuts are crafty and they’ve got a wrappable capacity that keeps you roasty toasty. As they say, keep the chest warm, the arms will take care of themselves.

It was a Wealth of Warm Layers at Muscovites by Masha Kravtsova

Edited by

By guest contributor Heather Epstein

The Muscovites by Masha Kravtsova Fall 2011 collection wasn’t held at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week tents but took place across town at the Audi Forum on Park Avenue. It was among the beautiful cars and crisp, clean showroom that the deconstructed fall line debuted. It was such an interesting juxtaposition. Cropped jackets and vests ruled the runway along with knitted sweaters. The collection had everything a woman would need to keep warm during the cold Russian winters and definitely the cold New York weather. Her line featured black, grays and browns with a fun twist of wood-like leggings and matching spandex tops. Leather details and ruffles were other added twists to this line. The piece that stood out to me the most was the long sleeve maxi dress with two rips at the bottom, resembling tank top sleeves; it was unique and made you look twice to think “is it possible to wear this the other way around?” This collection is everything any woman could ask for in a fall collection: capes, sweaters, leggings, vests and jackets to keep you warm, layer and play around with.

I know we are in the middle of a heat wave here in NYC, so the last thing we can think about is covering up, but designer Lindsay Thornburg has brought new meaning to the ‘little red riding hood.’

Made from wool and silk lining, the collection is inspired by her travels to South Africa, and contains not only capes, also hooded dresses, belted jumpers, and satchels.
