Mother-daughter team Elisa Goodkind and Lily Mandelbaum are the two behind StyleLikeU, a website that takes a look inside the closets of individuals with inspiring personal style. They have filmed everyone from RZA of the Wu Tang Clan to Tavi Gevinson, the 16-year-old editor of Rookie Mag. This time, we turned the spotlight on them to find out what inspires these girls who have re-defined the true meaning behind being stylish. More»
Bringing a new wave of Soul Garage to a new generation, Black Alley has been in the game for about 5 years. They are based out of D.C. and represent the region's "band-like" and "go-go" tendencies. Their diverse backgrounds and rhythmic intuitions help to develop their unbarred sound.
We had a chance to catch up with the group, who spoke about their collaboration with Black Cobain in New York, the inspiration behind their new album, and the truth about their group dynamic. More»
During the last weekend of June, two Europeans took over at the Kathryn Markel gallery in Bridgehampton, filling it with colorful, airy pieces of clothing, and turning it into the chicest sample sale the Hamptons has ever seen. From July 26-29, the girls will be featuring a selection of designer clothes alongside the artwork of Eric Blum, Dan Gualdoni and Annie Wildey. 10 percent of sales will go to GlassRoots, a non-profit creative initiative for young, undeserved people in New York. The two took time from hanging out between the colorful racks of clothing to tell me about their gallery sales, and their lives out East!MORE>>
Last night, Hudson Jeans paired up with Interview Magazine to throw a tasteful soiree at The Electric Room to celebrate Hudson's 10 year anniversary and their new ad campaign featuring the brand's face and muse, Georgia May Jagger. Guests enjoyed tequila based cocktails by Dobel while Au Revoir Simone DJ'd the event, followed by a live performance by Dragonette. We spoke to Hudson's creative director, Ben Taverniti, and Georgia May herself about the new line of jeans, their ad campaign, and what it means to be a Hudson girl. (Georgia M. Jagger and Ben Taverniti both agreed on the following style tip: the only way to wear your jeans is to have a fun relationship with your denim and to let yourself go.) More»
Boozy Brunches are taking over the nightlife scene and LAVO’s incarnation rages on. However, with all the dancing on tables and champagne spraying I feel like we’re forgetting about the best part. The food! What’s better than having some delicious brunch creations in your stomach to soak up all that Rose?
I went to LAVO for this past Saturday’s Bikini Brunch. After I devoured a delicious plate of banana pancakes the lights started to dim and the music grew louder. I grabbed my glass of champagne and headed down to the kitchen. There I found their executive chef John Deloach. We talked haute cuisine, party brunches and what makes LAVO’s brunch menu special.

New York Times best selling author Kurt Andersen has a new novel out, True Believers. I took this time as a chance to ask Andersen some questions I've been dying to pick his brain about. What era did young people have it the best in? Which one is most similar to the present one and what can we learn from the 60s (the era covered in his latest novel)? His answers to these and more below... More»
Comedian Mike Trainor stands at the mic, a black mystery box not unlike a chorus room piano perched at his right, the perfect surface for an emphatic slap or two. He is currently unsatisfied with his audience, an attitude that is seemingly part of his schtick. He’s recording the set, he says, and is (quite sarcastically) looking forward to hearing how he sounds speaking to a disengaged crowd from a venue that looks more like a hallway than a comedy club.

Drop The Lime is Luca Venezia, a DJ/Producer/Musician/Designer whose work has so much context focused on culture, that it is no surprise he is from New York City. We had the chance to catch up with Drop the Lime to discuss his newest album, Enter the Night, which was mostly recorded in New Orleans and widely released on July 2nd. We even got details about his thoughts on Elvis, hair pomade, and where to get the best pickle backs in NYC. More»
