Classless Chaps

September 9, 2011
In college, breakfast eaten out is the domain of Parents’ Weekend and hungover Sundays when you cannot withstand the dining hall’s babbling masses. In college, breakfast out comprises white tablecloths, delicately poached eggs drizzled over with hollandaise sauce — or else sausage and bacon and eggs and extra-large pancakes doused in maple syrup that make »

September 2, 2011
Take it for granted if you will, but when it comes to applying for a summer job or internship, it is still a selling point that we college kids know how to use Twitter. “Social media internships” are cropping up all over the place, tailor-made for us back-of-the-lecture-hall Facebookers by every adult who’s heard that »

WEEKEND | A New Year’s Resolution for the iPhone for Verizon

January 7, 2011
This New Year, please resolve to be less of a tease, iPhone for Verizon. The yuppie Justin Long wannabes have been salivating long enough. While the iPad may be the biggest gadget to come out of Cupertino this year, a version of the iPhone not for AT&T would mean not having to sacrifice the glorious, »

We need dialogue

March 26, 2010
Before the tea, a well-dressed, bespectacled man scanned the crowd before taking his reserved seat in the front row. I half-expected Scott Schuman of “The Sartorialist” to pop out from behind the Beinecke’s glass tower of rare books to snap a photo of his ensemble, a tasteful navy suit mixed with a striped shirt and »

NEW YORK — Fashion Week, thanks for rejecting me on Valentine’s Day. My trip to New York Fashion Week seemed perfect. It was the day for love and a blue-skied Sunday. Even with the light dusting of snow in Bryant Park, it was warm enough for me to wear a pair of little navy shorts »

“Wolfman” sleeps @ nite

February 19, 2010
“They say it is no sin to kill an animal. But is it a sin to kill a man?” the voice-over asks us at the beginning of “The Wolfman.” I don’t know. But it definitely shouldn’t be a sin to kill a bad movie. Considering its big-name cast and the host of special effects available »

Weekend Survival Guide: The best thing since sliced bread?

February 5, 2010
There’s something to be learned from the Boy Scouts when it comes to making it through the weekend unscathed. A night spent wandering High Street’s Frat Row before heading to Toad’s is essentially comparable to surviving a night in the wilderness — featuring murky darkness and the paralyzing fear of being devoured by rabid beasts. »

Oh hey girl, hey. You rock those birthing hips.

December 7, 2009
YCouture paired up with Seychelles on Chapel Street Thursday night for a talk and trunk show with up-and-coming designer Aysha Saeed. Her story, while inspirational for many members of Yale’s fashion society, didn’t actually start with fashion. After studying finance at Rutger’s, Saeed cycled through five or six comfortable but unfulfilling jobs before starting fresh »

Nothing says love like a gift from New Haven

December 2, 2009
Holiday shopping is great. Just admit it. As any Intro Psych student can now tell you, there’s nothing that makes you happier than giving to others. (Except for maybe “intimate relations,” but I’m not even going to get into that as a method of gift-giving.) Getting your shopping done in New Haven accomplishes two important »
