I started buying most of my clothing and accessories secondhand two years ago for several reasons: the environmental impacts, the savings and an admiration for old, quality items in lieu of poorly constructed fast fashion. Now, I was realizing the pitfalls of being a vintage hound and frequent thrifter.
With how “in” vintage items have become, expert authenticators say newly made knockoffs of old bags have surged. A new wave of counterfeits are so good they’ve been dubbed “superfakes.” If that’s not crazy enough, good dupes from 30 years ago are still floating around.
Do you carry a laptop on your daily commute? All it takes is one crowded train ride to realize you need ample protection. But, laptop security doesn’t need to come at the price of style. You need a bag that can handle your commute, offer total peace of mind, and store all your stuff, all while looking good doing it.
Stains are the bane of many a designer bag addict’s life – they are impossible to completely avoid unless the only reason you bought that pricey tote is to keep it in its dust bag at home.
While nothing beats a professional cleaning, sometimes, a few common household items may be all you need to save that expensive purchase from being marred by makeup, ink, food or wine.
On an otherwise still morning near Mount St. Helens’ Johnston Ridge Observatory, it was hard to miss the sound of more than 100 motorcycle engines raring up Spirit Lake Memorial Highway.

British motorcyclist Hayley Bell says she’s tired of feeling like an afterthought to the motorcycle industry. So, Bell put out a call on Facebook to her fellow female riders.
"I’ve had a totally crazy idea who wants to join me? I’m thinking of doing a world relay and seeing how far we get."
“I put out a post to say, 'I’ve had a totally crazy idea who wants to join me? I’m thinking of doing a world relay and seeing how far we get,'” Bell said.
And the Women Riders World Relay was born. Bell, who came up with the idea last fall, says she used Google Translate to post her message in different languages online. She figured it would maybe attract a few hundred women. Over 14,000 women motorcyclists, representing more than 90 countries, answered the call.

Yes, you read that right. Dogs. Doggos. Puppers. Woofers. Whatever annoying millennial colloquialism you want to use. Everyone lights up at the sight of our furry four-legged friends, and we've got the street style shots to prove it.
