A Very Politically Incorrect Gift Guide

Christmas shopping is a bitch. It requires time, money, thoughtfulness, gift wrap, trips to the post office, and other stuff that you probably don't have time for. So, to take the edge off your holiday shopping,  we present the ultimate gift guide for all of the colorful characters in you life...

For Fetishists
If you know someone who is a fan Jawbreaker and BDSM, look no further than the jawbreaker ball gag! It's not rubber, it's an actual jawbreaker. So when you're in the throws of passion you will be flooded with fond memories of one of the most underrated teen comedies of the 90's. It doesn't sound particularly appealing to me, but to each their own. Throw in a DVD of Jawbreaker while you're at it.

For Smokers
Smoking kills, but if you have no clue what to buy your smoker friends get them cigarettes. Smokers love cigarettes. They love them so much that they won't even care that you didn't put any thought or effort into their christmas present. If you don't know what brand they usually smoke go with Nat Sherman Fantasias, they're fun.

For Alcoholics
These cat wine stoppers are perfect gift for alcoholics and cat lovers alike! Especially good for alcoholic cat lovers. They come in a variety of breeds. 

For Homosexuals
Coffee table books make great gifts for everyone but if you're searching for the perfect present for that very special GLBT person in your life, look no further! Hollywood Babylon II by Kenneth Anger and Looking Good by Charles Hix are both great options for gay dudes, assuming that they have good taste and/or an appreciation for camp. Get lesbians Sisters by David Hamilton or  Sappho by the Sea by J. Frederick Smith. And make a card with Rachel Maddow on it (swoon).

For Fashionistas
Shoes with glitter on them, ideally Miu Miu or Rodarte for Opening Ceremony

For Your Worst Enemy
An Edible Arrangement. It's scarier than a severed animal head for sure.

For Republicans
Get Republicans a $50 donation to the ACLU, the Human Rights Campaign, Wikileaks, or NPR in their name. Or an edible arrangement.



For Stoner Chicks
Most pipes are ugly and clearly designed for and by dudes. This lipstick pipe is discreet enough to throw in your make-up bag and pretty enough to leave on your coffee table. Plus it looks EXACTLY like a Chanel lipstick. And don't forget to buy screens!

For the Clinically Depressed
Depressed people should watch the complete series of Six Feet Under. It could make them more depressed, but if you're going to lie in bed all day you might as well experience 63 hours of the best television show ever. Plus the depressed person is likely to relate to one of the characters on the show and perhaps it will make them feel less alone. Or it will serve as a painful reminder the life is miserable and ultimately, fleeting. 

For Normies
A Starbucks gift card

Doll Parts

I finally located a copy of Garage magazine (named for editor-in-chief Dasha Zhukova's gallery of the same name) and holy shit it is amazing! Most magazines that attempt to bridge the gap between art and fashion are annoying, especially this one. But Garage feels different. There aren't celebrities plastered on every page. The articles are actually worth reading. And Nick Knight's Cafe Flesh-inspired editorial is my favorite of the year. Believe it or not, but that human Blythe doll is actually Lily Donaldson. You can see a couple of the "before" shots here and here.

Happy Thanksgiving

I was walking down fifth avenue recently and I spotted a girl that bore a strong physical resemblance to a pre-op Heidi Montag. She was wearing a teal crop top with a dreamcatcher on it, leggings, and knee-length Minnetonka boots with about a million tiers of suede fringe. The utterly unfortunate trend of Native American cultural appropriation in fashion had officially gone from being purely tasteless to utterly grotesque. I hope that Forever 21 & co. stop churning out "Navajo" waterfall cardigans and jeggings. And on a less obnoxious note, here is my favorite cinematic ode to the wonderous holiday that is Thanksgiving:

I spotted this book of Olivia de Berardini's work on a friends' coffee table recently and I could not be more obsessed with it! Check out her website for more kitschy girly goodness.

Forever Fiorucci

While their clothes were largely underwhelming, Fiorucci's ad campaigns and brand identity could not have been better!  These scans are from the incredible, über-rare Fiorucci book by Eve Babitz, currently going for $670 on Amazon. Thankfully I was able to find a copy at the library.
