Bibliostyle: Emily Byrd Starr from “Emily’s Quest”

Emily-in-the-glass looked very well that night. She had got the dress she had longed for for years–spent the whole price of a story on it, to her aunt’s horror. Shot silk – blue in one light, silver in another, with mists of lace. She remembered that Teddy had said that when she got that dress he would painter her as an Ice-maiden in it.

St. Vincent’s “New York” is Everything

St. Vincent (Annie Clark) is amazing. She is smart, funny (just go watch all the promo video clips for MASSEDUCATION on her Instagram), clever, and her video for “New York” is the best. Screen caps below. I can’t wait for her new album to come out.

I saw her live a few years ago in Calgary for Sled Island–hands down one of the best live shows I have ever been to in my life.

Seeing her perform “Cheerleader” live  at Sled Island has become an anthem of sorts for me when I’m just done with the the cheerfulness and from-the-sidelines attitude that the patriarchy so often demands from us.

I feel like St. Vincent, Janelle Monaé, and of course Beyoncé are probably the trifecta of women I would follow into the future.

“New York” is such a brilliant song — it loops perfectly, and next thing you know, I’ve been listening to it for hours…

Bibliostyle: Ilse from “Emily’s Quest”

It would in truth have been a ghastly interview had it not been for Ilse, who chattered with all her old breeziness and tang, planning out a two weeks of gay doings while she was home […] the same lovable old madcap of laughter and jest and dressed with all her old gorgeous violations of accepted canons of taste. In an extraordinary dress–a thing of greenish-yellow. She had a big pink peony at her waist and another at her shoulder. She wore a bright green hat with a wreath of pink flowers on it. Great hoops of pearly swung in her ears. It was a weird costume. No one but Ilse could have worn it successfully. And she looked like the incarnation of a thousand tropic springs in it– exotic, provocative, beautiful. So beautiful!

Well Dressed, Well Read: Emily Climbs

She has literary ambitions, I understand, and considers herself the best dressed girl in High School. Perhaps she is; but somehow her clothes seem to make more impression on you than she does. People criticise Ilse for dressing too richly and too old but she dominates her clothes for all that. Evelyn doesn’t. You always think of her clothes before you think of her. The difference seems to be that Evelyn dresses for other people and Ilse dresses for herself.
