Introducing GSNYC's Alter Ego: Bullpen Betty

Bullpen Betty

My baseball rants have become a separate human. Please like me as much as the Academy liked Sally Field back in 1984:

My passion (obsession?) just makes me wanna bring humor & help restore the cool factor to baseball, while challenging stereotypes about sports & gender. With ridiculous emphasis on the New York Yankees. (Sorry mom).

Featuring game and player commentary, personal anecdotes, historical references, interviews, photos, music, bar reviews and whatever else the cat drags in. We're just getting going so stay tuned for podcasts and check out the Twitter feed:

Friends don't let friends wear pink baseball hats.

Ekaterina Kukhareva

About Ekaterina Kukhareva:
A graduate of the prestigious Central Saint Martin’s College of Art & Design in London, Ukranian-born luxury designer Ekaterina Kukhareva masterfully puts to use her degree in Textile & Knitwear by creating designs with emphasis on crochet, macramé, fringing and beading. These meticulously crafted garments, both heavy in detail and bright in color, range from structured jacquard jackets to mod neon shift dresses and knit 60's print high-waist shorts. With each piece as unique as the next (she hand-engineers her own prints), Ekaterina manages to design garments which stay true to her love of texture and knits. Bold hues of color are paired with rich neutrals to create unexpected color combinations on modern cuts, all of which allow the fashion-forward to stand out in a crowd.

British Luxury Shoe Designer Joanne Stoker Debuts In The States for Spring 13

For Spring, Joanne Stoker found inspiration in the idyllic boardwalks and seaside getaways familiar to her native UK and each design is infused with Stoker’s inimitable sense of fun and play. The collection features modern textures and fabrics and a range of different heel heights for the wearers mood. Styles like the ‘Jitterbug’ or ‘Mambo’ are named after old dancehall classics and deliver high-fashion, high-fun architectural heels. Bold candy stripes work their way into a range of flats and graphic raffia’s, with oversized lurex bows used to bring a femininity to sky-high platform styles.
