    It's so pretty! Sure, the walking-to-school-at-7:30-A.M. version of me might beg to differ, and oh, you know, throw her backpack down in a fit of rage every few steps or so, but look at how it glimmers from just the right angles! I'm way too into artenergyalchemy , which is where I go...

    LONG TIME NO TALK. Here's what's happened since last spring: Rookie Yearbook Two is out ! It is the print edition of our best content from our second year as a website and I am crazy proud of it. This one was a real labor of love -- I flew to Montreal twice to work with Drawn & Quarte...

    thestylerookie.com 27 Dec '13, 11pm

    Anon #1-I don't get it either, half the press I've gotten has been without my consent but it's mostly because journalists like the idea of a 12 year old blogger. I have gone to other blogs that get 100 comments per post and though I don't care for the post myself, I'm not about to mak...

    I am in full Halloween mode right now, watching all the appropriate teevee specials and having premature candy feasts. I wore my costume to school today only to learn it's against the rules, but no one thought I was even dressed up because of how I normally dress. I can actually get a...

    When I was 14 I felt total kinship with Winnie Cooper. When I was 20 (the year that Kids came out. Hi, I'm old), I took one photo of Chloe Sevigny and one photo of Mia Farrow circa Rosemary's Baby to my hairdresser and begged her to make it happen (which she did, sort of). Annddd, my ...

    THIS IS HOTSEXXYINCREDIBLE. I never would have envisioned our dear Karl to have once sported Billy Blanks-caliber muscular man-clevage... I should re-watch some Tae-Bo workout vids to see whether he ever moonlighted as one of Billy's back up squat-thrusters :) pretty much makes my day...

    blogs vs. magazines

    thestylerookie.com 12 Sep '13, 4pm

    At some point during Fashion Week in New York, an interviewer asked me "Why are blogs better than magazines?" I think I said something polite, but pulled a tiny face first- what?! I'm tired of the blogs vs. magazines debate because they are good for different things and each one has a...

    For my birthday I had friends over for dancing and hugging and waffles made out of cake batter. The waffles were a huge hit, and I highly recommend the recipe for your next social function, or just your next meal, or every meal ever. Grace and I decorated our dining room like the high...

    The fact that "smart" and "girly" have to be mutually exclusive gets in the way for someone like me who would like to go to school wearing an outfit I obviously spent time on picking out or with my classmates knowing that I spend a lot of time writing and thinking about clothes -- sin...

    , also by Marisa Meltzer, I had trouble putting down How Sassy Changed My Life . Not because it's riveting or suspenseful or anything (I mean, it's nonfiction, and you know about the downfall of the magazine when you start the book,) but because the writing just flows , and you just w...

    These are some photos I took a while ago for MAC 's MacZine that just came out, so here I am now, posting them, online, on the internet, on my weblog!!!!! The theme of the issue was "Wanderlust," so I did a Los Angeles-inspired moodboard and outfit, which is not surprising to readers ...

    Getting a bit philosophical here but I believe some famous ideas apply to this: First, "cognito ergo sum" - not so much in the sense that I exist, but that if I imagine/dream/experience something, that memory of experience happened and is now real. So basically if I think something, i...

    Anna Wintour was perfectly polite when we exchanged standard greetings and goodbyes. But it doesn’t matter how much you like or dislike Anna Wintour, even if you feel unfazed by her or her sunglasses or Vogue, even if you feel, as I did, like one of the only people in the room who isn...

    We'll come back to New York later because Christopher Kane's collection spoke to me like no other. Like really, really resonated. So intensely, in fact, that I found myself up at 2 AM digging out from under my bed the remnants of an early 2000's bedroom. It was like I'd been possessed...

    I'm kind of just a little bit obsessed with looking at other peoples diaries ( not in a creepy way or anything, I totally respect people's privacy!). Its such a personal thing, and even little details like the cover, or composition of pages says so much, and it's so inspiring! I also ...

    what a great post. oh how I love My So-Called Life. I agree with what you said about Angela. she's wonderfully relatable. her narration is golden too, and I think that the writers' choice to put 'likes' in her speech was a brilliant one. I can't ever understand why I've read how peopl...
