"Lena Headey always dresses like the head of a vaguely post-apocalyptic punk enclave who has to dress well because the punk enclave demands it but who has clearly barely ground out her cigarette butt on the hand of a willing underling before the picture was taken."

Genevieve Valentine (x)

I am flat serious about this, though:

2014 Emmys - Cocktail hour at the punk enclave, drinking blood-of-my-enemies-tinis and showing off jewelry made from the teeth of all those who partied too hard.

2012 Emmys - peignoir’ed for a quiet evening at home with the punk enclave, sipping moonshine and declaring anarchy.

2011 Emmys - Formalwear for an ambassadorial outing to represent the interests of Punk Enclave on the diplomatic scene. [Her clutch purse carries nothing but four pairs of bras knuckles - one set for her, and one set in case she a) wears out the first set or b) runs across someone cool who could use brass knuckles.]

2013 Emmys - It’s Garden Picnic Day at the punk enclave! (You can tell from the shoes; turns out even a punk enclave wouldn’t wear white after Labor Day.)

300: Rise of an Empire premiere - Casual Friday at the punk enclave.

And the 2014 SAG Awards - The specific but sublime “Oh, we’re posing for more pictures? Well, I hope you look at this dress until you puke, how’s that sound?” Day at the punk enclave.

I’m into all of this. All there is.

I have an article up at The Toast today! “I don’t think I’ll venture on dual garmenture”: Rational Dress and the Politics of Biking discusses pretty much what it says on the tin.

Research for this was delightful. Here are two of my favorite political cartoons and two of my favorite advertisements on the subject, at the far ends of the cultural response to Victorian biking costume: Terror that those ladies would go getting newfangled ideas in their heads…and how cool they would look if they did.

We sort of talked about not using what we called ‘space funk’; which was just beautiful things for the sake of it. We talked more about the beauty in science. So it’s like finding that beauty in reality. - Mark Tildesley
