S’mores Frappuccino T-1


The countdown is at one day before the American public is reminded of their youthful summers via the S’mores Frappuccino. Until the crafted drink is available, there’s the bottled version that has to be just a specter of the real deal.

The Dregs of Lilly Pulitzer at Target


Yes, I’m still fascinated by the successful disaster that was the Lilly Pulitzer collaboration with Target.

In most locations, all traces of the Lilly Pulitzer launch have been sanitized, […]

S'mores Frappuccino T-2

Set the countdown clock for two days when Starbucks launches its seasonal S’mores Frappuccino. This drink sounds extremely decadent starting with a base layer of marshmallow flavor whipped cream.

The Existence of Lilly Pulitzer at Target


A mere two days after the release of Lilly Pulitzer’s affordable collection at Target, it’s like it never happened. On Sunday, Lilly fans overwhelmed Target and its stock.

Passed on the Adidas Tubulars


I so wanted to love these shoes, but in the end, I had to pass on them. The Adidas Tubulars have been out for a few months and while they caught my eye, I just didn’t act…until I saw someone wearing them. The silhouette of the Tubulars was distinctive, but the texture and colorway muted […]

I’m not comprehending it yet… Rooted in sport and inspired by the runway, these men’s shoes give the ’90s style of the ZX 7000 modern fashion details like a high cut and a slick neoprene upper with leather and synthetic overlays. They ride upon a big […]



By now, it’s no secret that Starbucks baristas like to mess with customers by feigning misunderstanding your name for your drink order. So when your drink for “Darthy” is called out, just be proud of your perceived lineage to the Dark Lord of the Sith.

Must Buy Archie vs Predator


Let the title of that crossover comic settle in for a moment, Archie vs Predator. Yes, that Archie. The red head with pals Jughead, Reggie, Betty, and Veronica. And yes, that predator. The cloaked alien that hunts in the heat of summer and rips out spines of its prey. Yeah… How do these comic cultures […]
