I got my first pair of combat boots from the clearance section of the shoe aisle at Target for $9. I wore them until there were holes in them, even though they really didn’t fit. I was 18 and dumb. After wearing the bad boots out, I upgraded to Steve Madden’s Troopa Combat Boots, which, being on my fifth pair, I contend are the best combat boots for an urbanite like myself. (These are not hiking boots, y’all.)
Benebabes, Tartelettes and the rise of the cult makeup follower. The first beauty brand I started religiously following on social media was Maybelline. As someone who uses incredibly few drugstore makeup products, it was definitely out of character.
Last Friday was supposed to be a big day for Paige Jordan. One of her favorite band, PWR BTTM, was releasing Pageant, it's critically acclaimed second album, and were celebrating with a concert at Rough Trade Records in Williamsburg. And Paige had tickets. She was stoked. Then she checked her phone.
