I love, love, love the artist Tyler Feder‘s illustrations that she posts on Instagram. This month she is posting a new illustration every day in which she re-imagines famous scenes from movies with women of various backgrounds, looks, and identities playing the characters. Asked by a commenter recently why “‘inclusive’ has meant ‘without men’ in her series thus far?” she replied: “Because there are so many movies that feature all or mostly men in a wide variety of roles and the range for women tends to be so much narrower. I want these versions to pass the Bechdel test! (Also women are easier and more fun for me to draw 👻).” This “Breakfast Club” scene is one of my faves from the series, but, gosh, they’re all so good. P.S. She has an Etsy shop here.
Ok, this milk bottle match striker is a little overpriced for what it is — you can probably find more affordable options on Etsy (ooh, here’s one!)— but I love its simplicity, functionality, and beauty. It’d make a thoughtful host or housewarming gift.
I love all the Dr. Jart products I’ve tried, and since I’m almost out of my favorite (the BB cream), I think I should probably get this whole collection, which includes the BB cream and so many other products to try. Fun!
We just started watching The Romanoffs from the creator of “Mad Man.” It’s an “anthology series that tells stories of people who believe that they are descendants of a Russian royal family.” Each episode is a separate story and at an hour-and-a-half long, it feels like a movie, taking place in a new location with a new cast. Reviews are very mixed and the series won’t appeal to everyone, but I like the aesthetic presentation (it’s very distinct in the same way a Wes Anderson movie has its own aesthetic), the different global locations (the series was shot on three different continents), and the compelling and complicated characters, which Matthew Wiener is a master at creating. Have you seen it? What do you think? What else are you watching this fall on TV?
