We here at the function key are especially fond of animals in costume, so fittingly we’ve compiled a few of our favorites for a Halloween treat! Stay scary! “Flying is not in my repertoire.” “Next year we’re going as hot dogs.” “Look at me! Like a duck outta water.” “I’m awaiting your directions Sir Ken. […]

a little bit of boston in paris — the new marc by marc jacobs store.

October 30th, 2008 · Comments Off on a little bit of boston in paris — the new marc by marc jacobs store.

Just got the new JC report in our inbox, which informed me that the new Marc by Marc Jacobs store opened in Paris (at Place du Marché Saint Honoré). This is all well and good, I’m sure throngs of young Parisians are descending upon the new shop and excitedly grabbing up affordable Marc Jacobs accoutrement. […]

While wasting time on Facebook, I became intrigued by a friend’s new profile picture, which looked suspiciously antiquarian and like it had been swiped from my parent’s yearbook. Upon further investigation I discovered it was generated by a Web site called yearbookyourself.com, naturally I checked it out. It’s pretty straightforward, pick your sex, upload a […]

Use these to freak out your germaphobe friends. Invite them over for dinner. Fix a salad, and then disappear into the hall closet (or wherever you keep your tools — maybe you have a garage, we don’t).

October 27th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I’m obsessed with Always Amy stud earrings. How could you not be? Her collection houses so many super-cute designs it’s hard to choose which earrings to buy! In fact, the shop even offers a Kitschy Cute Stud Club subscription (she’s giving away a free subscription right now — click here to enter), and over the […]

OBEY the Boston ICA.

October 24th, 2008 · 2 Comments

A lot can be said about Shepard Fairey. He is one of, if not the driving force in bringing graffiti and street art into the mainstream market place. He took an artform obsessed with spray paint and letters, and made stickers and wheatpasting the thing to talk about (not without help from REVS and COST of New York). He […]

isaac mizrahi bids adieu to target.

October 24th, 2008 · 3 Comments

‘Tis a sad day for thrifty fashion lovers of America: After this season Isaac Mizrahi will officially part ways with Target. Sigh. But seriously, it had to happen someday, the man cannot design for Target for the rest of his waking life.
