A few months ago, we found ridiculously cheap plane tickets for Boston and off we went. It was our first visit to the city and, believe it or not, Stockholm in February was more pleasant than Boston in March. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that we arrived completely unprepared. That I, in my converse and thin jacket, did not end up with pneumonia is honestly not even fair.
It was so cold that I wouldn’t even reach for my camera. I snapped more pictures with my phone than I did with my Canon. We stayed outside the city and ventured out to explore, but all those trips were cut short. Being inside and warm was just so much more appealing.
We mostly just ate. I dragged Lee and our friends across the city and back to get Ethiopian, Mexican, Taiwanese, and Vietnamese. The best ethnic food was the only research I did before going to Boston. I drank tanks of cider after discovering the Downeast variety. This stuff is incredible. They make it right in Boston too!
[dropcap custom_class=”normal”]Short of Blue Ivy storming the stage, showing off her mommy-rivaling toddler pipes, and then spontaneously releasing her debut album, we’ve basically come to the point where Beyoncé can’t outdo herself (and yet, she still does), so this husband-wife tour makes perfect sense.[/dropcap]
New York City’s skyline is truly awe-inspiring.

[dropcap custom_class=”normal”]On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain.[/dropcap]
Hailey Baldwin striking a pose with a hoard of puppies! Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis breaking into song! Hari Nef slinking about in a décolletage-diving blazer! Welcome to a Fashion Week model casting—Vogue.com style.
And it wasn’t just a typical waiting-around-for-fittings affair, either. Instead, call it the ultimate playground of all casting calls, starting from the outside, where Phil Oh lensed the grand entrances of the insouciant-cool models-off-duty en masse, while photographer Sofia Malamute created editorial-worthy portraits of several of the stunners on the sidewalks.
Inside, models were greeted by Instagram’s cheeky darling Elliot Tebele of Fuck Jerry, who enlisted fresh faces to re-create his favorite memes. As for those paper “comp cards”—or rather, the model form of ID? The photographs received an elevated, digital touch and were transformed into GIFs to bring their personalities to life.
Daniel Jackson shot supermodel Christy Turlington and Calvin Klein creative directors Francisco Costa, Italo Zucchelli and Kevin Carrigan for WSJ. Magazine. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful.
Once upon a time, before you were born, or maybe not, cheap clothes were just, well—cheap. You bought them in nasty, bare-bones stores, and even though you looked really great—because you are so beautiful that anything looks good on you!—when people asked you where you got that amazing thing, you were inclined to shrug and say vaguely that you couldn’t remember or that it was a gift or some other bad lie.
Now, of course, if you stop the chicest girl in the corridor and inquire as to where she found her perky pleats, her fringed fandangos, she fairly shouts out the 29th-floor windows that she got them in the most plebian shop on the high street, or fished them out of a bottom of a thrift shop bin. Even those among us blessed with a fat purse extol the virtues of mastering the mix, popping a Zara blouse over a Chanel dirndl or marrying a Topshop topper to Céline trousers.
Maybe this is due to the revolution in social media, where everyone can access images of the loftiest fashion shows a minute after they happen, making it easy to copy—oh, scratch that, I mean, create an homage!—to each and every runway look. Or maybe in our increasingly freewheeling democratic society, we are more than ever convinced that it is we ourselves who are the authors of our own signature style. And while it’s nice to have expensive things (I mean, come on, who doesn’t like expensive things?), it’s also wonderful to be able to put thrilling looks together without having to eat cereal for a week or, the way prices seem to be going (have you looked lately?), an entire month.
This season, with wild eclecticism reigning on runways—Victorian goth angels! Chic geek know-it-alls!—it’s easier than ever to animate your fashion fantasies without decimating your paycheck. Above, a panoply of fabulous fall suggestions, and everything is under $200.
