Screen Style Stills: Princess Bubblegum & Marceline the Vampire Queen Forever


Let’s face it–Pbubs and Marcy are one of the best TV couples of all time (especially since they are both kind of immortal).

This is a little style tribute to them–what would they wear IRL? Here are our bets.

Music x Style: Santigold’s “Chasing Shadows”

Screen Shot 2016-02-29 at 9.50.47 PM

Santigold’s video for “Chasing Shadows” (single off her new album, 99 cents) is totally the life I want. A stylish lady, all alone, doing what she wants.

Did the SP 16 Comme des Garçons collection remind you of Howl’s Moving Castle, Too?


Above and throughout: All runway images Comme des Garçons Spring 2016 found here.

Lately I have been busy pinning the Spring 2016 Paris fashion shows. When I saw Rei Kawakubo’s Spring collection for Comme des Garçons, I was TOTALLY reminded of Miyazaki’s Howl’s Moving Castle, based on the eponymous YA novel by Diana Wynne Jones.

Perhaps it was the power of suggestion–over at, Sarah Mower reviewed the Comme des Garçons show and noted,

Once more this season, she again blocked the expectation that she would offer anything recognizable as clothes. Instead she mounted a monumental sculptural meditation on “Blue Witches,” a coda further explained by her husband Adrian Joffe as “Powerful women who are misunderstood, but do good in the world.

– Sarah Mower here


The looks Kawakubo designed reminded me both of Howl in his monster form, and the Witch of the Waste in her various evolutions throughout the film.

Both Howl in his monster form and the Witch of the Waste are featured with navy/indigo/dark-as-the-night sky blue and purple as their main colours. Feathers, luxurious fabrics are represented on both characters, and both cut pretty imposing figures at different points in their transformations. Blue witches, indeed!

How To Roll Down the Hall Looking Like a Boss, Peggy Olson-style.

Screen Shot 2015-05-24 at 12.34.19 PM

Mad Men is over now, but there is plenty of feminist inspiration waiting for you still on Netflix if you haven’t seen the show yet. Jezebel did a lot of great articles on episodes in the last season here, here, and here.

Screen Shot 2015-05-24 at 12.34.24 PM

Peggy Olson is a boss lady, and if you ever forgot it, chances are you won’t ever again when she rolled into McCann Erickson looking both fierce and insouciant in the 12th episode of this last season (“Lost Horizon”).

Screen Shot 2015-05-24 at 12.34.36 PMAll I know is that next time I’m feeling annoyed or generally unimpressed with my job, I’ll be rolling in the door like this. And also I need a scandalous painting to hang in my office now, kthanks.

Screen Style Icon: Mabel of Gravity Falls

Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 12.38.10 PM

So Gravity Falls is a hilarious Disney cartoon that has recently caught our eye. The show centres around twins Dipper and Mabel who go to live with their “Gruncle” (great-uncle) Stan in Gravity Falls, Oregon. The town is a supernatural hotspot, and between that and helping Gruncle Stan run his pseudo-museum the Mystery Shack, hijinks ensue. It’s hilarious (yes, even for adults), and while it doesn’t seem to have as many women in leading creative roles as we would like to see, it’s still worth a watch.

Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 12.40.56 PM Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 12.40.46 PM

Naturally, we’re especially interested in Mabel, voiced by feminist actress Kristen Schaal who you might know from Flight of the Conchords, Bob’s Burgers or her book, The Sexy Book of Sexy Sex.

Mabel is hilarious, adventurous, a boss, and about as silly and playful as cartoon characters get. She’s bold and fun, and not the one-dimensional wannabe-mean girl that lots of shows tend to write for tween girls.

Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 12.41.29 PM Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 12.37.39 PM Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 12.38.42 PM Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 12.42.45 PM Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 12.42.56 PM

We also love how Mabel is portrayed as being active, not passive, and not a wallflower. Sure, she’s boy crazy, but she also knits, dances, plays video games, and is a master prankster.

Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 12.45.22 PM

We love her wardrobe of rotating chunky turtleneck sweaters featuring various hilarious graphics that she seems to wear regardless of season.
