    Style Double Shot: Robert Pattinson in Dior Homme

    by Tom and Lorenzo

    lol but also hmmmm

    Formerly sparkly Rob has fully embraced his Euro-Fashionisto side lately. He was always willing to go the extra mile on his style choices when it suited him, but this latest turn is so runway-model that it’s like he’s come out of the closet on his secret passion for edgy male fashion.

    Let’s assess, yes?



    Actor Robert Pattinson attends the premiere of “The Lost City of Z” during the 2017 Berlinale International Film Festival in Berlin, Germany.


    No, really. It’s clearly not for everyone, but he’s got the exact right look for it. And it will never, ever be mistaken for something a first-year associate wears to the office, which is like 90% of male celebrity style.

    This next look is perfect for any business setting, however:

    Go ahead, hate us if you must, but this is DIVINE. We can’t pull it off, but we’re so glad he wondered enough if he could to try it. Note to Rob: You not only pulled it off, you worked the shit out of it. More of this, please. Shame all those blue-suit-wearing boystars.

    Britney Spears responds to Katy Perry


    Love and light, bitch.

    Last night, multiple times on the red carpet, newly "woke and conscious" Katy Perry made fun of Britney's 2007 breakdown. (Related post). Today, Britney responded on twitter.

    Bar to be knocked down for apartment building - but this time in Brighton, not Southie

    by adamg

    Yeah right, space for Harry's to return for twice the rent. Fuckers.

    Bird-enhanced architect's rendering.

    A developer is proposing to tear down Harry's Bar and Grill, a convenience store and a Subway shop to make way for a seven-story, 37-unit residential building.

    Unlike in South Boston, however, where bars have just disappeared, developer Yan Schechter says he'll leave space for Harry's Bar and Grill to return.

    In a filing with the BPDA, Schecter, who says he is "committed to implementing the principle of New Urbanism, which promotes the creation of walkable, human scaled places that enhance local economies, improve public health, and build stronger communities," is proposing 20 one-bedroom apartments, 15 two-bedroom units and two units with three bedrooms.

    Three of the one-bedroom units and two of the two-bedroom units will be marketed as affordable, to people making up to 70% of the area median income.

    The $12-million building would have 33 parking spaces - more than called for by BTD guidelines for buildings right next to public transportation.

    The BPDA holds a community meeting on the proposal at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 15 in conference room 1 on the third floor of the Hawes Medical Building at Brighton Marine, 77 Warren St.

    In Marc Hurwitz's Friends of Boston Hidden Restaurants Facebook group, Bobby O'Neill asked this afternoon:

    I feel like restaurants and shops owned by members of the Iraqi, Iranian, Sudanese, Yemeni, Libyan, Somali, and Syrian communities could use our support. Any recommendations?

    Here's the list folks have come up with so far (additions welcome, of course):

    Judy Garland superfan paid over 15K to be laid next to her remains– which were just flown cross-country

    by Derek de Koff


    This afternoon, there’s one Judy Garland fan who’s defiantly not blasting “Get Happy.” OR “The Trolley Song.”

    As Page Six reports, this JG superfan — whose name hasn’t been released to a curious public– purchased the space next to Garland’s final resting place at the Ferncliff Mausoleum, a spot that reportedly sold for around $15,500.

    “It’s funny because there’s a man who specifically flew in from California because he is a big fan of hers,” says a heartless and unfeeling cemetery manager..

    Related: This Haunting Judy Garland Performance Was Cut In 1964 For Being Too Dark

    “He purchased a plot near her so when he dies he could be next to her. I don’t know what he is going to do now.”

    Maybe he’ll live forever now. Out of spite.

    Since Garland’s fatal overdose in 1969, the remains of The Wizard of Oz star have been keeping a low profile, hiding out in crypt No. 31 in Unit 9.

    Last Thursday, those remains were exhumed and flown to Los Angeles at the request of daughter Liza Minnelli. What’s left of the actress will be re-interred at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, where she’ll be rubbing elbows with other A-listers like Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone, The Beatles’ George Harrison, and filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille.

    That superfan is gonna be so lonely.

    Zoning board OKs replacing closed JP restaurant with condos

    by adamg

    ugh :|

    The Zoning Board of Appeals this morning approved a proposal to replace the shuttered James's Gate at McBride and South streets with an 11-condo building.

    Two of the units in developer Stephen Ballas's building will be marketed as "affordable" - to people making up to 80% of the area median income. One unit will have three bedrooms, the rest one or two. The first floor will be a commercial unit; the building will have 12 parking spaces.

    Mayor Walsh and City Councilor Matt O'Malley supported the project. Two neighbors spoke in opposition, saying the building was too tall and too dense for an already dense neighborhood on a busy commercial street. One said today's hearing was the first time she had heard about plans for four roof decks on the building, which will rise 51 feet - although part of that is a decorative cornice.

    Hot Slut Of The Day!

    by Michael K

    fuck yes


    Firas Nasr, the werktivist who led the Queer Dance Party in front of Mike Pence’s house!

    For some of us, today is the day when we take our abuelita’s black lace veil, cut a hole in the mouth area to put our bong through and toke, toke, toke away while medicating the feeling of doom and gloom by watching The Golden Girls marathon on Logo. But before you do that, get a massive injection of glittery hotness provided by the WERK For Peace movement.

    A group of queer activists gave birth to WERK For Peace in response to the massacre at Pulse in Orlando, FL. Since then, the group has been swaying their asses and dropping it low in the name of peace. And on Wednesday night, they took over the streets near Mike Pence’s rental house in DC and delivered what is probably his nightmare but my dream: a big ole’ hot gay dance party! They chose Mike Pence’s house, because DUH. Firas Nasr, who started WERK For Peace, told the Washington Post that they wanted to send a twerk-filled message to Mike Pence to let him know that the gay community will always be united (even as he sends us to gay conversation camps, and again, bitches, I’ve already called the bottom bunk under Anderson Cooper).

    “Dance is so integral to the queer community as a form of self-expression and a form of asserting our power and our beauty and our love for one another, The idea is to leave a mark that Mike Pence will never forget. We want to send a strong message to Pence that we’re a united queer community. We’ve always stood united. There’s always space to dance.”

    As they all busted out boiling moves to Madonna and Beyonce songs, they shouted, “Daddy Pence, come dance!” And without further ado, here’s a pucker-inducing clip of Fiery Firas dropping ten hundred tons of hotness while dressed like the glamorous lot lizard version of Mork.

    And of course I’m not an anti-gay gay, but if I say I am, will Fiery Firas and his crew of werktivists throw a dance party in front of my house too?

    Kristen Bell in Rasario at the People’s Choice Awards 2017

    by Tom and Lorenzo

    it's a no from me sweetie but thank you so much for coming.

    “The Good Place” actress Kristen Bell attends the People’s Choice Awards 2017 held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.


    Girl, what is this even?


    Wow. She looks so pleased with herself. We think that’s the most amazing part of all.

    Hang on. No. We got that wrong.


    The coffee filter boobs are the most amazing thing here.



    Is it the pants? Are they the most amazing thing about all of this? Because they’re pretty damn amazing – for all the wrong reasons.


    We take it back. Definitely the pleased facial expression. She looks a little delusional.

    On the other hand… coffee filter boobs. It’s inarguable.


    Wait… DEFINITELY the pants.


    And also the pleased facial expression.

    The point is, it’s all horrifying. That garment needs to be dissolved in a vat of acid and she needs to go home and think about her life.

    Britney Spears Opens Up About Meeting Boyfriend Sam Asghari

    Britney Spears is finally opening up about her rumored boyfriend Sam Asghari!

    The 35-year-old entertainer spilled about meeting Sam on the set of her “Slumber Party” video while making an appearance on Amp 103.7′s Fast in the Morning.

    “We were waiting and waiting there together for 20 minutes at a time…so we were basically forced to talk to each other. He didn’t really know me as a person…and I have no idea who the hell he is, and we were just talking,” she explained.

    Britney said that the duo talked about sushi and shared interests and he gave her his number so that they could make plans.

    “I kept his number, and it was so weird because it was like five months later that I found his number in my bag. I was like ‘He was really cute. This guy was really cute!’ so then I called him. He is just a really fun, funny person,” she explained.

    We’re so glad Britney seems so happy with Sam!

    Business In the Front, Party In The Back Business In the Front, Party In The Back

    Happy Friday Everyone! I can't believe another week is done in January. Before we know it this month will be over with.  This weekend is a birthday filled weekend for me. Tomorrow is my dads birthday and then on Sunday is H's birthday. Which if the weather is nice and doesn't snow. We will be going out to brunch with H. To celebrate her birthday. 

    Business In the Front, Party In The Back

    I don't know about you guys but are weather here in Maryland. Has been super weird. One day it's cold out. Then the next day they weather is in the 70's. Like it was yesterday. Today we are going to be in the low 50's out. 

    Business In the Front, Party In The Back

    So therefor I decide to wear my new Flower Pattern Blouse. That I got from Zaful recently to work today. What I love about this shirt is. It looks like your basic 3/4 t-shirt from the front. The back of the shirt on the other hand. Is super fun with it floral pattern. Which make this shirt different and fun. The best part is this shirt is only 9 dollars. 

    Business In the Front, Party In The Back

    Which is an awesome price for a super cute and fun shirt. That you can total dress up or down. For my accessories. I decide to wear two new items that I just got. One is the statement necklace that Ant got me for Christmas. It is a total different piece for what I currently own. With all the different gem in it. 

    Business In the Front, Party In The Back

    To go with the necklace. I add these super cute and fun Fake Opal Elephant Earrings. That I got a few weeks ago from Sammydress. If you know me in person or just from reading my blog. Then you know earring are the one item. I never leave the without wearing.  So I'm always on the hunt to add another fun and unquine pair to my collection. 

    So when I saw these Elephant ones. I knew I had to have them. I was going to order these earring on Black Friday but decide to wait. Which I'm happy I did. Since these earring are now under 4 dollars. 

    I hope you all have a great weekend and a fun one.

    US Rep. Michael Capuano tweeted today he's going to be holding office hours in Cambridge on Friday instead:

    While I have great respect for the Office of the President and I accept the results of the election, I will not attend the Inaugural.

    Instead I am holding an open house at my Cambridge District Office, located at 110 First Street from 8-10 a.m. on Friday the 20th.

    So many of you have contacted my office to raise concerns about the future of our great country I wanted the opportunity to hear from you.

    One other Massachusetts rep, Katherine Clark, will also not attend.

    Tracee Ellis Ross in Paule Ka at the InStyle Golden Globes After-Party: IN or OUT?

    by Tom and Lorenzo

    she's killing it in my opinion. adorable but still chic, love the color & fabric and obsessed with the purse. come through tracee!



    Miss Tracee, we love you – and we really love your exuberant reaction to your current success, which is charming as hell and clearly deeply sincere, but …



    Oh, LADY. We cannot, we’re afraid.



    Here are the only points we’ll make: We think this is another example of a possible rising red carpet trend toward more demure dressing. We think the shape can work for her, but those twists are clumsy and hard to pull off. That yellow is a tough color on its own, but you render it in satin and you’re asking for a superhuman feat from your wearer. It’s just way too much for her to pull off.




    And once again, a quirky bag isn’t the right way to finish a look like this off. She’d have been better off building a more appropriate ensemble around this bag rather than tacking this bag onto a dress that it doesn’t go with.




    That’s us. But you guys get the final say. Yes, she’s adorable and fun. But does that make a bad dress good? A question for the ages, kittens. Or put more succinctly…

    Cate Blanchett in Louis Vuitton at “The Present” Opening Night Party

    by Tom and Lorenzo

    weird, at certain angles i love it and at others it's really bad


    Let’s take a break from all the attention-seeking finery of the Golden Globes for a moment and watch a real artist doing real work on the STAGE.

    Also, let’s judge what she’s wearing.



    Oh, shit. It’s one of those.




    Here is the real test of us as bitchy fashion bloggers. We hated the other versions of this dress worn by actresses less likely to have us fall all over them in gushing fanboi praise. Can we maintain our objectivity? Our very integrity?



    To hell with THAT. We didn’t take any oaths. Objectivity will have to be put off for another day, because we …




    Newp. Still not feeling it.



    We admit that the gray helps and her insane level of bearing does a lot for it. And to be perfectly accurate, Lorenzo likes it a bit more than Tom does, and has made the attempt to argue its good points (and struggled with it, although he thinks the edginess of it is argument enough), but it’s just … not a great look.



    Credit to her, because this venue’s a bit more appropriate for it somehow, since the dress has a slightly intellectual (or if you want to be less kind, overthought) feel to it. Even so, the stylists of the world need to stop pushing it like candy on our ladystars.

    Tracee Ellis Ross Ditches the Boho Style for the Golden Globe Awards

    by Tom and Lorenzo

    i think she looks amazing and those RINGS omg. i'm so happy for her!

    It’s virtually impossible for us to critique Miss Tracee’s look, because …


    She’s so damn ridiculously charming, especially after that speech.


    tracee-ellis-ross-blackish-2017-golden-globe-awards-red-carpet-fashion-zuahir-murad-couture-tom-lorenzo-site-3It’s hard to do anything but love someone who’s enjoying her success as much as she is right now.

    In an insular little celebrity-filled world that highly values the pretense of humility even as it places the utmost importance on attention-seeking and awards, you’ve gotta love a gal…



    Who loves winning as much as this one does. We salute you, Miss Tracee.

    But we’ve still got a few things to say about your choices. Let’s take a scroll.

    Those damn half-sheer skirts are killing us. We hated Sarah Paulson’s and we don’t like this one much better. Especially since the hem length is so awkward. But we like it overall for being glamorous, sparkly and sexy in a way that didn’t feel overdone or generic. We’d have rec’d some changes (LINING), but we can’t fault the choice too much. We don’t much love the hand jewelry, though. There is such a thing as too much, Miss T.

    And while her head styling tends to work with her more Boho choices, we’re not sure this is quite up to the dress. We wonder if she avoids dramatic makeup because her mother is basically the queen-empress of dramatic makeup.

    Kirsten Dunst is a Style Amuse-Bouche at the Palm Springs Film Festival

    by Tom and Lorenzo

    love this

    Okay, yes. That title does sound vaguely dirty somehow. We apologize to Miss Kirsten. Allow us to explain.

    First, take a scroll:





    We’ve kicked off the New Year in high T Lo style. By being critical bitches. Our first two posts of the year had a range of complaints attached to them. And as we looked over the next few posts in the pipeline, and it dawned on us that our claws were sharper than usual this day (Blame it on the time off over the holiday. What else can a bored cat do but sharpen its claws, darlings?) it occurred to us both that we needed something simple and pretty to break up all the complaining.

    We try ever so to take you all on an emotional journey every day, kittens.

    Anyway, our point is this: The dress? Pretty! Great color, great shape, lovely details. We especially love the sleeves. The bust could use just a skosh more of a better fit to it and the head styling is completely wrong for it (Sorry, Kiki, but you needed an up do and a heavy eye for this one), but we can’t argue with the quiet glamour of the design. Well done.

    Okay, now we can go back to being bitches for the next one.

    The Twenty Best Red Carpet Looks of 2016: Part 1

    by Tom and Lorenzo

    i'm crying at that gucci dress. anne looks great and i still love that mcqueen collection.


    Time to remind yourself that there was pretty to be found on the red carpet of 2016, kittens. But we have to be honest here: We never found it so difficult to put together a “best” red carpet post before. Looking over it all, this was a tired and repetitive year of red carpetry, dominated by overdesigned Frankendresses, sheer black dresses and forced-whimsy dresses bogged down with beading and embroidery. Which isn’t to say there weren’t moments of high style in 2016. Just that the following list was compiled by wading through an astonishing level of dull to just plain bad red carpetry this year. We suppose for that reason alone, we should thank the following for keeping things pretty.


    20. Anne Hathaway at the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscar Party in Naeem Khan.



    So thank you, Anne Hathaway, for serving up “pregnant Bollywood Liz Taylor” realness, which wasn’t actually a thing that existed before you stepped out in this look. And if this was the kind of site that counted down this sort of thing, this would easily be the most chic and most glamorous celebrity maternity look of the year. And that’s in a year when Marion Cotillard was slinging her babybelly in haute couture. 


    19. Saoirse Ronan at the 2016 Academy Awards in Calvin Klein Collection.



    And thank you, Saoirse Ronan, for showing the world that, goddammit, there is too such a thing as Irish Chic.

    18. Mia Wasikowska at the “Alice Through the Looking Glass” Los Angeles Premiere in Alexander McQueen.



    And thank you to Mia Wasikowska, for getting her hands on this Joan of Arc/Cinderella/Maleficent mashup of a gown before anyone else could, because she and the venue couldn’t be more perfectly suited to it.

    17. Jennifer Lawrence at the 2016 Golden Globe Awards in Christian Dior.



    And thank you to Jennifer Lawrence, who wore something deserving of the label “Dior,” which is a rarity for her. It was a controversial look, but we urge you to go look at the huge pile of crap she wore this year (not to mention the huge pile of crap everyone else wore this year) and we think you’ll see how much this stands out for chicness and boldness.



    16. Elle Fanning at the “The Neon Demon” New York Premiere in Gucci.



    And thank you to Elle Fanning, for knowing how to really turn the dials up to 11 on the whole Princess Fantasy schtick, making it seem sophisticated and elegant when so many lesser dress-wearers make it seem silly and juvenile.

    “Growing up I was really into 80’s movies. It’s something my mom and I bonded over. I feel like that reflects in almost all of my outfits with at least one article I’m wearing. I feel most comfortable in trousers and high laced boots, and jackets/coats. Some days I feel my strongly femme side, and others I look like the boy you crushed on in high school. Both are equally me.“

    jólakötturinn song info: - - - Jólakötturinn - The Yule Cat - Hvít Er Borg Og Bær (1987) Icelandic lyrics:

    Þið kannizt við jólaköttinn 
    - sá köttur var griðarstór 
    Fólk vissi'ekki hvaðan hann kom 
    eða hvert hann fór 

    Hann glennti upp glyrnurnar sinar 
    glóandi báðar tvær 
    Það var ekki heiglum hent 
    að horfa í þær 

    Kamparnir beittir sem broddar 
    upp úr bakinu kryppna há 
    og klærnar à loðinni löpp 
    var ljótt að sjá 

    Því var það, að konurnar kepptust 
    við kamba og vefstól og rokk 
    og prjónuðu litfagran lepp 
    eða lítin sokk 

    Þvi kötturinn mátti' ekki koma 
    og krækja í börnin smá 
    Þau urðu að fásína flík 
    þeim fullorðnu hjá 

    Og er kveikt var á jólakvöldið 
    og kötturin gægðist inn 
    stóðu börnin bísperrt og rjóð 
    með böggulinn sinn 

    Hann veifaði stélinu sterka 
    hann stökk og hann klóraði' og blés 
    og var ýmist uppi í dal 
    eða úti' um nes 

    Hann sveimaði, soltinn og grimmur 
    í sárköldum jólasnæ 
    og vakti í hjörtunum hroll 
    á hverjum bæ 

    Ef mjálmað var aumlega úti 
    var ólukkan samstundis vís 
    Allir vissu' að hann veiddi menn 
    en vildi ekki mýs 

    Hann lagðist á fátæka fólkið 
    sem fékk enga nýja spjör 
    fyrir jólin - og baslaði og bjó 
    við bágust kjör 

    Frá því tók hann ætið í einu 
    allan þess jólamat 
    og át það svo oftast nær sjálft 
    ef hann gat 

    Því var það, að konurnar kepptust 
    við kamba og vefstól og rokk 
    og prjónuðu litfagran lepp 
    eða lítin sokk 

    Sum höfðe fengið svuntu 
    og sum höfðu fengið skó 
    eða eitthvað, sem þótti þarft 
    en þad var nóg 

    Þvi kisa máti' engan eta 
    sem einhverja flíkina hlaut 
    Hún hvæsti þá heldur ljót 
    og hljóp á braut 

    Hvort enn er hún til, veit ég ekki 
    en aum yrði hennar för 
    ef allir eignuðust næst 
    einhverja spjör 

    Þið hafið nú kannske í huga 
    að hjálpa, ef þörf verður á 
    máske enn finnist einhver börn 
    sem ekkert fá 

    Máske, að leitin að þeim sem líða 
    af ljósskorti heims um ból 
    gefi ykkur góðan dag 
    og gleðileg jól - English Lyrics:

    You know the christmas cat 
    - that cat is very large 
    We dont know where he came from 
    nor where he has gone 

    He opened his eyes widely 
    glowing both of them 
    it was not for cowards 
    to look into them 

    His hair sharp as needles 
    his back was high and bulgy 
    and claws on his hairy paw 
    were not a pretty sight 

    Therefore the women competed 
    to rock and sow and spin 
    and knitted colorful clothes 
    or one little sock 

    For the cat could not come 
    and get the little children 
    they had to get new clothes 
    from the grownups 

    When christmas eve was lighted 
    and the cat looked inside 
    the children stood straight and red-cheeked 
    with their presents 

    He waved his strong tail 
    he jumped, scratched and blew 
    and was either in the valley 
    or out on the headland 

    He walked about, hungry and mean 
    in hurtfully cold christmas snow 
    and kindled the hearts with fear 
    in every town 

    If outside one heard a weak "meaow" 
    then unluck was sure to happen 
    all knew he hunted men 
    and didnt want mice 

    He followed the poorer people 
    who didnt get any new clothing 
    near christmas - and tried and lived 
    in poorest conditions 

    From them he took at the same time 
    all their christmas food 
    and ate them also themselves 
    if he could 

    Therefore the women competed 
    to rock and sow and spin 
    and knitted colorful clothes 
    or one little sock 

    Some had gotten an apron 
    and some had got a new shoe 
    or anything that was needful 
    but that was enough 

    For pussy should not eat no-one 
    who got some new piece of clothes 
    She hissed with her ugly voice 
    and ran away 

    If she still exists I dont know 
    but for nothing would be his trip 
    if everybody would get next christmas 
    some new rag 

    You may want to keep it in mind 
    to help if there is need 
    for somewhere there might be children 
    who get nothing at all 

    Mayhaps that looking for those who suffer 
    from lack of plentiful lights 
    will give you a happy season 
    and merry christmas

    Jólasveinar ganga um gólf með gildan staf í hendi móðir þeirra sópar gólf og flengir þá með vendi

    Upp á stól stendur mín kanna níu nóttum fyrir jól
    þá kem ég til manna

    Upp á stól stendur mín kanna níu nóttum fyrir jól
    þá kem ég til manna

    English translation:
    Yule-lads tread the floors
    with a thick staff in hand
    their mother sweeps the floors and spanks them with twigs

    On top of a chair my pitcher stands nine nights before Christmas I head towards mankind

    On top of a chair my pitcher stands nine nights before Christmas I head towards mankind
