How To Tuesday: Damsel in Distressed Denim

destroyed denimIt seems counterintuitive to want to wear something that looks like it’s been handed down– for several generations, but destroyed denim came back onto the fashion scene several seasons ago and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.  I especially like it for the warmer months as if those extra holes are going to provide any extra ventilation in prevention of the dreaded “swamp ass.”  My parents are always confused when I wear a pair of shredded jeans around them… even more so when they find out how much I shelled out for them.  So, if you are anything like Dick and Georgia and want to achieve the look of distressed denim without distressing your bank account, I have the tricks to DIY destroyed denim.  You can also apply all of these techniques to denim cut off shorts (like the ones I taught you how to make last spring here).

How To Tuesday: But First, Let Me Take a Selfie

how to take a selfie

Once “selfie” was actually included in the Oxford dictionary (though spellcheck still does not recognize it), I figured it was a topic that was well worth addressing in a long overdue (greatly anticipated) episode of How To Tuesday.  Though our newsfeeds are swamped with narcissistic snapshots of mugs of friends, acquaintances, and Victoria’s Secret models, it seems that some of you are still not quite clear as to what constitutes an actual selfie.  First of all, it’s a photograph of YOU taken by YOU.  While posting a photograph of yourself taken by someone else is still just as self indulgent as a selfie, it does not classify as one.  And because I know you’re going to have a super good hair day soon and need to document it, let’s break down the best and most flattering ways to capture your pretty little pout with the “Do’s” and “Don’t's” of taking a perfect selfie.

How To Tuesday: Slice a Pineapple, Smell Like a Kardashian

A couple of weeks ago, supermarkets across the US saw a spike in pineapple sales.  It may have had something to do with a little “science experiment” executed by none other than the Kardashian Krew.  Now, I’m not sure who I’m more disgusted by: them for showcasing such unladylike behavior on national television, or you for buying into it.  Either way, I’ve always been a fan of pineapple and it’s the perfect fruit for summer fetes, but it can appear to be a bit daunting in its native state.  Have no fear, chopping up a pineapple is much easier than one might have guessed and it’s also chocked full of health benefits other than those not suitable, however, still mentioned on TV.

Monday Mashup: Stating the Obvious
Written by: WhyDid | Monday Mashup

miley cyrus vmasAlright, let’s not beat around the bush.  I do realize the MTV Video Music Awards took place last Thursday, which coincidentally coincided with Fashion’s Night Out.  This left us all with the burden of choosing between one three ring circus and another.  I, myself, went ahead and took on Fashion’s Night Out in New York by visiting with Lauren Kaminsky and David Lerner at Beauty & Essex.  This, of course, means that I missed out on all the tomfoolery of VMA’s past.  But alas, I took a little bit of time perusing the red carpet photos and viewing some of the noteworthy performances via YouTube.  And while, there was the usual ridiculous attire of some, others -ahem, Rihanna- redeemed themselves.

And then I realized something.  We’ve all been wondering what exactly Miley was thinking when she lobbed off her locks a couple of weeks ago (or at least her bun and I have).  Well, I think we may have unearthed her inspiration.  Perhaps young Miley was channeling the queen of girls kicking ass, Pink and her platinum blonde bouffant.  The resemblance is kind of uncanny and it leaves me wondering what Pink thinks about her mini me.  More importantly, what do you think?
