Zendaya’s Green Carpet Fashion Awards Dress Was a Vintage Dream

Fashion icon Zendaya went the vintage route to accept her Visionary Award at the virtual Green Carpet Fashion Awards, and the result is both sustainable and stunning.

Wearing a vintage piece for a big event practically guarantees that no one else will show up in the same ‘fit as you. It is also a great way to practice sustainability in your wardrobe since you are giving pieces from the past a new life and refraining from purchasing something new. Z and her team know this well and that’s why they knocked it out the park for the look on October 11.

Z’s image architect, Law Roach, posted a video of the award-winning actor posing in her ceremony look, a brown Versace gown from 1996 with jewels from Bulgari. “I think she’s the prettiest girl in the world… Zendaya for the Green Carpet Fashion Awards wearing Bulgari and Archive Versace from

Vintage Electric E-Bikes Review | Big power and retro style without the sweat or spandex

See Full Image Gallery >>

Portland is the only city in the continental United States with a volcano within its city limits. It’s called Mount Tabor, and although technically a mere “extinct volcanic vent,” walking or hiking up to the top of its roughly 440 feet is still a decent workout. Those who bike up it are typically spandex-clad Lance Armstrong types or casual cycling sadists content to chug up at 3 mph. I, on the other hand, pedaled up Mount Tabor at 20 mph. No huffing, no puffing, no sweat, no spandex.

That’s because I was riding a Vintage Electric Café electric pedal-assist bicycle, and after a summer spent zipping around town without the typical cycling concerns of hills, going too damn slow and showing up to your destination drenched, I’m thoroughly sold on electric assist bicycles as a concept. And as for the Café itself, it takes that

Apple now considers final iPod nano model ‘vintage’

Apple on Thursday added the seventh-generation iPod nano to its list of Vintage and Obsolete products, officially limiting active support for the venerable pint-sized music player.

Introduced on Sept. 7, 2005, the iPod nano was touted as the smallest iPod with a screen. Over the course of its nearly 12-year run, the stalwart music player took on a variety of shapes, sizes and formats.

The first generation was a tall, slim take on the traditional iPod design language. Featuring a Click Wheel and a 1.5-inch color screen, the device could be had in 2GB and 4GB configurations priced between the iPod Shuffle and iPod Classic.

Over the years, the nano went from tall and slender to short and squat, back to tall, down to an all-screen square shape, and finally something resembling a miniature iPhone with a home button. Each successive generation included a color screen, on-device controls

Why Vintage Fashion Will Always Be Popular

Retro fashions have seen a strong resurgence in the past couple decades, beginning with the grunge style in the early nineties. Working class rock bands out of cities like Seattle helped launch thrift-store throwback items into the national spotlight. The fashion began as a direct result of economic hardships and nonchalant attitudes in the pop culture movement.

By the late 1990s, thrift-store fashions had gained an eclectic but popular representation in the generation X demographic. Over the past decade, many of these low-budget style choices became the target for high-fashion designers as vintage moved off Main St and onto Fifth avenue.

Vintage Fashion Becomes Mainstream

Many mainstream designers went retro at the turn of the century, bringing back classic looks like pleated corduroy pants from the seventies. Even the bell-bottomed denim look made popular during the hippie era made its way into mainstream department stores.

Today, vintage clothing is associated … Read More
