Megan Wornette

Our latest editorial intern loves her some internet

I’m a recent graduate of Centennial College’s Book and Magazine Publishing program, and currently the Lifestyle and Science and Technology editor of Paper Droids, a geek culture site for and by women that I created with classmates from the program. I love TV, history, video games, and fashion, as well as the style that lurks within all of these things. I would describe my style as somewhere between Zooey Deschanel and Liz Lemon. That is, a girly tomboy. I’m a huge fan of WORN and super excited to be part of the Wornette Army!

Current Inspirations

The Hairpin
I’m a pretty active member of The Hairpin community, and while this is not just a style site, Jane Marie’s How to Be a Girl posts are amazing, and they recently started a series about the style of historical figures, complete with modern clothing picks. There may also be a (not very) secret Google Group where we all talk about and show each other our outfits, and it is probably my current greatest inspiration on what I’m wearing right now. So many stylish ‘Pinners!

Calivintage
This vintage-focused blog was one of the first style blogs that I followed regularly, and is a pretty good representation of the clothes I like to wear. I even took a picture of Erin’s pixie cut from a few years in to the hairdresser when I cut my hair short a little while ago. Which is not creepy at all, right? >.>

Japanese Streets
Asia, but especially Japan, has some of the coolest street fashion in the world, and Japanese Streets is hands down the best English language Japanese street style site on the web.

Console to Closet
I am a huge gamer, so of course I’m in love with this Tumblr that is full of outfits inspired by my favourite video game characters.

Old Rags
I can, and have, spent entire afternoons looking through this Tumblr of the clothing collections of museums around the world. The elaborate Russian gowns are probably my favourite. And the flapper dresses. And anything from the Renaissance. Okay, so everything is my favourite.

Très Click: Penises! Now That We’ve Got Your Attention, Read This Link Round-Up

Video Chat Karaoke Episode 9: Tavi Gevinson – ‘You Belong With Me’ (Taylor Swift)
Tavi wears black lipstick and lip synchs to Taylor Swift because of course she does. BRB, buying black lipstick.

6 Weird Fashions From History (With Weirder Explanations)
All fashion statements have one of three explanations. It’s either a reflection of wealth and status, something completely practical and functional, or small penises. Okay, fine, two explanations.

What We Read At Lollapalooza
Lollapalooza was a weekend of music, sure, but apparently it was also “a weekend awash in competitive irony.” The Awl has a round-up of the “best” T-shirts seen there and of course by “best” I mean “most ridiculous.” I’m really impressed by the guy wearing a shirt that compares the smell of his dick to chapstick. Of course by “really impressed” I mean BRB, going to vomit.

@CondeElevator
The Conde Nast Elevator Twitter account is dead, but the absurdity it captured will live on forever. My personal favorite was: “[silence] [silence] [silence] [silence] [silence] [silence] [silence] [silence] Summer Intern: “Was that…?” Intern #2: “Yeah” #annawintour”. RIP Conde Nast Elevator.

Nine Excerpts From The August 2011 Issue Vogue, Presented Without Comment
Even though Conde Elevator is no more, we can still LOL at Anna Wintour’s expense. Our hilarious web editor, Anna Fitzpatrick, presents a few of the more ridiculous excerpts on The Hairpin. I’ll never look at my earlobes or a Jell-O shot the same way again.
