The time has come where the solar system and style have finally collided. Thanks to Nasty Gal's new line of space oddity clothing, choosing between the cosmic and the catwalk is no longer a problem. Space cadets can have their pick of Milky Way leggings, galactic blouses, and cosmic boots. Sure, they make a bold statement, but we say go for it — neons and nebulas are just what the stars have aligned!
Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, died this weekend at age 82 and will forever be remembered as a legend, leaving his mark on a monumental event of the 20th century. The astronaut who took "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" changed history and the possibilities of the universe. Here are eight prints for astronomy enthusiasts and anyone inspired by this science great, as a reminder of exactly what can happen when you shoot for the moon.
Calling all space cadets and astronomy enthusiasts! There's a clothing line for you: ShadowPlayNYC, an Etsy shop where fashion and nebulae collide in glamorous ways. Based in Brooklyn, a team of two spaced-obsessed designers use a combination of actual NASA images and self-made prints to create unique fabrics and one-of-a-kind pieces. Even cooler is their eco-friendly stance toward protecting this planet; aside from carefully hand-making each garment and sourcing all supplies locally, ShawdowPlayNYC uses organic fabrics and employs a waste-saving production technique that leaves next to nothing for the landfill.
Take a look at the cosmic collection that includes moonwalking scarves and extraplanetary skirts.
I have no clue why anyone would choose to feed on the chemically enhanced and processed "food" they serve the astronauts in space, but there's obviously a market for it. Space Food Sticks were introduced back in the '60s and, to my surprise, are still available online today. The following commercial claims that these
dog treats provide "lasting energy to feel alive." In only 44 calories. Which seems totally feasible to me.
Tomorrow Today was a UK television program of the '70s that claimed to predict trends and lifestyle habits of the future. And where did the experts foresee fashion going? They had a space-age getup in mind, complete with metallic miniskirts and "specially adapted cosmetics belts" to free us ladies of our bulky purses. How novel! Thirty years later, we can thank our lucky stars that these predictions were all wrong. Really now, what girl would give up her freedom to tote a Birkin?
Valentine's Day is long gone, I know, but this is too unworldly to keep to myself. What lunatic actually thinks that an alien pointing a gun at his love, while robotically chanting "you must be mine" and "obey me," would make any gal swoon? He's gotta be joking, but even so, this is more nightmarish than funny. Run, Lisa Peters of Dublin, run! No, don't booty dance— run!
