By: Candy Washington

I’m all about the ethical treatment of animals, but don’t get me wrong, I would still rock an awesome chinchilla or minx (shh, don’t tell PETA) but vintage of course. However, when I want the hottest and most current styles in fashion and fur, my go-to is Unreal Fur. An awesome fashion line that launched on the scene in 2012 from Australia and made its UK debut during this year’s Autumn/Winter fashion season.

An open letter to fashion editors looking for “volunteer” writers.

By: Candy Washington

We all know that climbing and clawing your way to the top in the fashion industry can be treacherous and you will have to go through dozens of pairs of stilettos and manicures. Not only do we have to look the part, pay our dues, and deal with egos the size of double venti lattes, but we usually only get paid mere pennies to endure to the “privilege” of working in fashion.

Remembering Cory Monteith. From Glee to gone, a life cut too short.

By: Candy Washington

Cory Monteith may have played naïve, sweet, and lovable Finn Hudson on Fox’s hit show, “Glee,” but he was also fighting his own dark battle against drug addiction. Unfortunately, he may have lost that battle. Cory unexpectedly passed away, at the age of 31, on July 13th following his most recent stint in rehab. The exact cause of death is still being investigated and his autopsy is scheduled for today. Although he was born in Calgary, Alberta, his parents divorced when he was seven and Cory was raised in Victoria, British Columbia by his mother. He turned to drugs and alcohol by the age of 12 and was in and out of 16 different schools before a family intervention at 19, after which he checked himself into rehab for the first time.
