Why Did You Wear That: A Good In-Vest-ment

By |June 4th, 2013|Why Did You Wear That?|

Let’s play a little game of word association, shall we?  When I say, “denim vest” what’s the first thing that pops into your pretty little head?  I bet it was a mullet… namely in the form of Billy Ray Cyrus (you know, Miley’s dad).  But forget hoe downs and achey breaky hearts, cause the denim vest is one of this summer’s hot ticket items.  Just like all good things and some ex-boyfriends, denim vests have made a comebeack and here are three cool (and slightly unexpected) ways to wear one.

1. MINKPINK Wonderland Mini Dress, 2. Mossimo Supply Co. Cropped Denim Vest, 3. Forever 21 Neon Lucite Trimmed Clutch, 4. Calvin Klein Vivian High Heel Sandals

Don’t break my heart, buy a vest.



Setting the Mood: Crashing Coachella

By |April 10th, 2013|Setting the Mood|

Every year, music fans flock to the desert to listen to their favorite bands and just cut loose.  This music filled phenomenon is called Coachella.  Now, for me, being subjected to large smelly, sweaty, intoxicated crowds is my worst nightmare realized.  I have a hard enough time navigating public transit.  However, there are some of you who live for these types of Woodstock wet dreams, so you’re going to need to dress the part.  Basically, this is your chance to live out your hippie boho dreams.

A few tips:

  • The dirtier/more careless you look, the better.  AKA: no shower, no problem.
  • Never use Paris Hilton as a style reference even though she continuously attends.
  • Pants are apparently optional.
  • Just please put on some shoes.

To be clear, not much has changed from last year.

Would You Wednesday: Fresh Shave

side shave hairstylesRecently, I’ve noticed quite a few songstresses and celebrities with a very daring hairstyle created by shaving one side of their heads and leaving the rest of their locks long.  I must admit it, it’s an undeniably edgy look that the average wallflower couldn’t pull off, but it makes me a little nervous.  I’m pretty attached (both literally and figuratively) to my tresses and if you think bangs are hard to grow out, I can’t imagine what kind of fun ensues when trying to even out your follicles once one tires of the look.  On the upside, I suppose it’d cut drying time in half.

So would you try the look?

Chop, chop.
