Around the FASHION Blogosphere

If it's southeastern style, it's Talitha❣
Haynes, that is... "a Miami Fashion Blogger, who loves everything that Glitz and Glamours. Talitha sports a Grid Boxy Top in her latest photo/post.➲

Not technically a blogger, although he is represented on twitter, Karl Lagerfeld's website features something called 'The Karl Daily,' although "daily" is a misnomer. In any event, it's one two ways you can keep up with the fashion icon!

Speaking of iconic, fashionista Tavi Gevinson
...(also on twitter) continues as a strong force in the industry:

Next, check out Stokes (Wenwen C.) for some spectacular photography and the very latest in fashion trends!

Ann Liu is reblogged on Intelligent Bacon Blog writing about her great grandma's 3-inch feet! "Tiny feet" were quite fashionable, once upon a time. Foot binding (also known as "lotus feet") was the custom of applying painfully tight binding to the feet of young girls to prevent further growth.  Foot binding became popular as a means of displaying status (women from wealthy families, who did not need their feet to work, could afford to have them bound) and was correspondingly adopted as a symbol of beauty in Chinese culture.

The Manchu Emperor Kangxi tried to ban footbinding in 1664 but failed. It took Communism to end the practice.


The iWatch or Apple watch... I have yet to meet anyone from any generation - boomers, hipsters, X, whatever--- that have any interest in even thinking about wearing/using one of these things. Here's an article by a New York mag reviewer who seems to like it... What about YOU? Do you see yourself with an iWatch any time soon?

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
