Toots & Boots // Last Week in the World

Here again to share what got Boshemia’s passions and frustrations flowing last week, it’s our pop culture toots and boots!

TOOTS 🎉

Dressed: The History of Fashion podcast, “Frida Kahlo: Making Herself Up” episode

It’s a deep dive into the history of Frida’s self-construction as an artist and how she presented herself to the world, from her iconic red lipstick and monobrow to her traditional indigenous textiles.

Vanity by Alfred Agache

Agache’s wonderful painting was seen this week by one of our designers but instead of Vanity we’d like to rename it Power; the woman depicted is staring down her painter (and viewers), knows she’s hot, and has no fucks to give.

The new Carly Rae Jepsen song, Party For One

The Queen of Gay Icons has done it again! When we needed it the most, she’s released a genuine bop about heartbreak and self love. Our musical leader is back!

Philosophy Tube on witches, gender and marxism

A one-man channel exploring all the obsessively interesting politics, ethics and (you guessed it) philosophy you didn’t know you wanted to know about. Here, an appropriately haunting episode: it’s witches, bitches.

The oral history of Werewolf Bar Mitzvah

Continuing the halloween theme we have this gem from Laist.

@makedaisychains Boring Self-Care

This instagram illustrator gifts her followers with simple motivations to do the ‘boring self-care’ that we all need but that mental health can often make difficult to carry out. Her pride in completing everyday tasks such as taking medication as prescribed or going outside, remind us to be equally kind to ourselves.

BOOTS 💩

(Though short, our boots are in zero ways sweet. Bootability 1000/10)

This horrendous 72 hours of hate crimes and white terrorism in America

And Trump still played Pharrell Williams’ Happy. We ain’t.

Autumn fast fashion / only being able to afford fast fashion

These $10 scarves are great but the environmental cost is not.

Seasonal depression showing up again and pissing everywhere
