Favourite blog: Goddammit I’m Mad

Sister Wolf is pretty grumpy (try fucking mad) about a lot of things: pretentious (fashion) bloggers, especially the ones who use words like “rad” and “gnarly”, horse-like fashion editors, overpriced and over-accessorised “It” shoes and clueless style in general.

She does like a few things though, like Yohji Yamamoto and tattoos.  Oh, and she’s the living proof that you don’t have to chop off your long black hair or lay off the red-lipstick-Morticia-look just because you’ve hit your fifties.

Here’s how she introduces herself:

Sister Wolf has been mad for a long time. She is here to share the joy. Celebrities make her mad, Republicans make her mad, cultural crimes and the misuse of language make her apoplectic. Lots and lots of other stuff, too. Funny things make her happy! Horrible things (like those chimps who didn’t get any birthday cake) make her day.

Favourite blog: Go Fug Yourself

fug (n.)
1. A state of extreme ugliness. Ex: “The level of fug at the Video Music Awards is always hard to stomach.”

2. A proper name for someone possessed of eternal heinousness, as Chloë Sevigny: “Oh look, there’s Fug, looking all miserable and dour in her black turtleneck and white frilly farm dress.”

Det er en lille smule ondt, men ikke for meget. Og så er det voldsomt velskrevet, når de to forhenværende “recappere” Jessica Morgan og Heather Cocks revser (og af og til roser) diverse A-D celebrities tøjvalg.

Udover at det er en fryd at læse, så er det altid sjovt at lure på kändisserne og deres outfits – og sjovt nok er jeg (næsten) altid mest begejstret for dem, der bliver dømt mest hæslige og gakkede af de to bloggere. Som f.eks. Chloë Sevigny, Roisin Murphy, Maggie Gyllenhaal og dronningen af quirky avantgarde: Hussein Chalayan-musen Tilda Swinton.

It’s a bit evil, but never too much. Jessica Morgan and Heather Cocks used to work as recappers but for the last 6 years they have been the driving force behind the extremely witty and well-written blog GoFugYourself that tears apart A-D celebrities’ outfits on the red carpet.

It’s always fun to see what the celebs are wearing and the blog is quite a “reverse” inspiration to me, as I tend to love the outfit that the bloggers hate the most. Like the ones seen on Chloë Sevigny,Roisin Murphy, Maggie Gyllenhaal and of course the queen of avantgarde: Hussein Chalayan muse Tilda Swinton.

Favourite blog: IS MENTAL

En af mine favoritter, når det gælder modeblogs er IS MENTAL. Bag den står New Yorkeren Amanda, der skriver løst og fast om nye tøjkøb, lager- og kollektionssalg, yndlingsdesignere, anderledes design og gademode.

Hendes smag er rå, street’et, kantet og humoristisk og så har hun en forkærlighed for vilde smykker og sko, genbrug, japanske designere og de mere avantgarde europæiske som Margiela og Demeulemeester.  Og så elsker jeg, at hendes blog ikke er prætentiøs, snarere som en god veninde med fantastisk stil, der prikker en på skulderen og siger “hey, prøv lige at se den her”.

English: One of my favourite fashion/style blogs is IS MENTAL. It’s written by New York-based Amanda, who writes about her new buys, funny gadgets, her favourite designers, street style and sample sales.

Her taste and style is raw, edgy and a bit street and she loves statement  jewellery and chunky shoes and the more avantgarde Japanese designers + of course European stars like Margiela and Demeulemeester. I love that her blog isn’t pretentious. It’s more like a good friend (with very good taste) that lets you in on her personal style and latest shopping secrets.
